Unfortunately, we are now beginning to understand what the second one means and what the first says about us.
Trying to catch up on the missing post from last week.
So you get three tonight.
Here are a couple of pictures.
First I cut off the cigarette plug from the EZ Guide 500 power cord. Then I put an in line automotive spade fuse holder on the positive side and then installed the Powerpoles using an ARES configuration with the positive or red connector on the right side.
Next I took power from the power port on the right side of the tractor and used the solid red wire for continuous power and the ground. I sealed and taped down the red wire with the orange stripe (ACC) wire as it was not used.
Hooking up is simple, just slide red into red, black into black and you are powered up.
There you go………..
Well I have mentioned that I got some wheat planted. A whole 30 acres but it is up and doesn’t look that bad. It is not a perfect stand by any stretch of the imagination. Heck I am glad any of it came up at all. It is thin in places but the green sure stands up against the brown of fall.
The first picture is of the hill and flat behind the house as seen this morning while the sun shined for just a few minutes before the sky opened up again and the rain started.
You can see the standing corn behind the fence row that the neighbors have yet to shell. If I turned in all directions this morning you could see corn all around me. Very little of it is out at this point.
A few winter annuals are out there and a few aphids here and there but considering the weather there is no urgency to spray.
Right now, I will take it…………
Well this last week has seen it all I guess. All of it to do with sick things:
Computer virus shuts down my connection to the outside world. It was nasty what ever it was, got the OS……………..
Starters and alternators on tractors and combines keep us from starting up and moving on with harvest or just moving. And still one tractor wont start.
Rain, need I say more.
Three computers that don’t work…….now they do! I just love reinstalling programs and then having to call tech support to get unlock codes again and explaining time and time again that I lost it due to a virus.
Son has swine flu! When will I get it?
And on top of all of that, so much to blog and no time. I will get back in the swing tonight, as it is guess what…………raining again!
BTW, good things that happened while off line.
Got transmission back in dozer and it moves!
Got neighbors beans cut.
Got more of my beans cut.
Wheat is up where you can see it.
Got most of the garage cleaned up, most of it.
And did get most of my computers back up and running.
So not to bad…………………..
After much work I have my computer back up and running and am back on the net.
Will get back up and running on the blog starting Monday.
The magic smoke left the computer. I have disc coming from Dell to get it back to life so I hope to be back on the air soon. I also ordered another computer in case the operation doesn’t go well on the Dell, but the 2nd air shipping has turned into 5 days ground…………………………..
Check back soon.
Trying this on a Crackberry sucks.
Its almost Halloween, the time to TP you friends. This is a real lazy way to do it, although the noise will most assuredly wake everyone up and get you caught in the act.
I am computer less due to the virus that took down my main connection to the information supper highway. I am however conducting salvage operations on the HD until the disc arrive from Dell to begin the process to see if I can bring it back to life.
At about the same time that the disc will arrive so will my replacement/backup computer from Best Buy. So I sit and wait and try to keep in touch with the world via my Blackberry.
It really isn’t so bad except that you cant type anything at great length with the Blackberry and using my daughters notebook computer is just as bad. My fingers are just to big to fit onto the notebook to do any typing. So if it isn’t point and click, forget it.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have a canola update along with a couple of other offerings. There is little else to do with the cold and wet weather other than begin to winterize things………….
After battling it for two weeks, and thinking I had the upper hand, my computer gave up the ghost today and wet feet up from the unknown virus that I had.
Not one program for the detection of malware, spyware or viruses could get it or cure it.
So……………I am in a salvage operation now with my hard drive and awaiting discs from Dell to wipe the slate clean and start over again.
It is Monday night and I am trying to type a blog on my daughters notebook. My hands are to big and I cant type worth a crap!
Looks like there will be plenty of time to catch up on e the blog this week. Rain forecast for every day.
Lets see, camping, shooting, ham radio and farming to write about this week as I have lots of new pictures from this weekend to share.
So until I can find a keyboard that fits my hands, see you tomorrow.
