I am now home and the gremlins are working over time, The weather sucks with snow rain wind and just lousy conditions.
Just after I got home the ATCS server I run stopped working and I spent about 2 hours trying to figure out why. Nothing I did worked so checked the ATCS Yahoo group and found out the server was offline and would be back up soon. Okay figured a simple reboot and everything would be fine. No way that would happen.
Microsoft decided it was time for another update so took over the computer and I could really not do anything till it was done. I run the ATCS program on an older computer and it works fine but really dose not like windows updates. I fought with it some more but nothing so will have to delete everything and start over. It seems to happen every time Microsoft updates Windows.
I decided to update my Canadian Railway News and edit day two of my Erie trip. It took about 3 hours to do and then another 10 hours to process. Moved everything to my old computer as I can’t process on my new one as the lifetime license I bought only applies to the lifetime of the computer and can’t be moved without spending another $60 for a new license. Left it on and went to bed.
I figured it would all be done this morning but the gremlin fixed that. I was saving to a 33 MB flash drive and it seemed it was short by about 2 MB as it has some other data on it so the program stopped working. Dam now I have to do it all over again.
Started the program again and now decided to save to the hard drive instead. Go it all set to go and I moved the keyboard and everything went black. Nothing I could do would bring it back. Rebooted the computer and started over again. It show 11 hours until it is completed. I have the old compute running on WiFi but looks like I need to put it on the network for faster uploads.
Isn’t life grand?
