Duped! I am fighting off

November 20, 2001


I am fighting off a head cold…I feel dehydrated and sick, and that isn’t a good thing. I have this nasty problem with Dreamweaver that might make me format my computer. Some how, the registry isn’t adding the FrontPage import extension. So, it looks like I’m going to make backups onto CD-Rs and format my drive. This isn’t a normal problem and one that I’ve tried everything. Uninstall, delete entries from the registry, reinstall, no luck.

A client’s computer came in today and should be installed and burned-in before next Tuesday. I’ve been doing a pretty good job in finding cheap computers for people. I have another customer who didn’t like the used computer I priced out, so she is going ahead and getting my $550 special. I make a nice but tiny profit, hell any money I make helps to subsitidize having two sites hosted. I’ve thought about it, and I really wish I could get some more business. I’m planning on ads in the local paper, but nothing too big. I went through my books last night and either on ebay or through the brokering services at riv@ , I’ve sold a computer every month this year. I’ve only had one problem with a system, I’ve sold, and that with concerning those horrible KDS monitors. I don’t get a good deal on monitors, so I usually just purchase a Sony or just give advice on where to get good monitors.

It’s funny to me that people are just now getting Krispy Kreme…I didn’t know they were a southern thing until a few years ago, sounds like in California , it was a riot trying to get one.

From the AJC: Turner looks past tough time: ‘I try to get by’

I have always admired Ted Turner. He was always the proud southern man who made good (even though he was born in Ohio). He attended school here in town at McCallie . He seems to be ahead of the game for some of his “kookie” projects, 24 hour news on cable (cnn), kept a pitiful baseball team when no one was attending games (80’s Braves), Goodwill Games, etc. and the article I’ve linked to lists a few more. There is always a method to his madness…but Jane Fonda? Come on…

More stuff on Ted, some good, some bad, some funny.
