Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 8:45 P.M.:  I chatted with three relatives.  I will now reboot the computer into Microsoft Vista beta 1 to see if the USB 2.0 hub installs, and then I will shut down the computer, and I will go to bed.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 7:35 P.M.:  I shut down the computer, and I plugged in the USB 2.0 port hub into the motherboard USB 2.0 port beneath the keyboard plug.  When I rebooted it was recognized as a USB 2.0 port hub, but it does not show up in the device manager, although the USB 32 meg pen drive does work off of it.  The USB 2.0 PCI four port card is recognized as a USB 2.0 device.  Maybe the USB 2.0 port hub does not show up unless, it has a USB 2.0 device plugged into it.  However, after it recognized it as a USB 2.0 hub, it then installed it as a generic USB Hub, so it might be installed differently than one expects.  I currently have new Epson ink cartridges in the Epson Stylus Color 880 printer that is my primary computer inkjet printer, so I will continue to use it for now.  I also have spare generic cartridges for it.  I also have the Epson Stylus Color 900 printer with new generic ink cartridges connected to the primary computer, and the HP Photo Smart 1000 with new generic cartridges.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 6:45 P.M.:  I installed this driver Syba - United States PCI to USB/Firewire add-on card USB 2.0 4+1 ports  download driver for the SYBA USB 2.0 4+1 PCI card SYBA USB 2.0 4+1 PORTS RETAIL BOX .  From all of the USB devices in my system properties, I can not tell whether it is working at USB 2.0 speed or not, so I will wait to see if the system alerts me again.  However, except for my Vivitar digital camera, I do not think I have any USB 2.0 devices yet, except possibly the Rio Player, which I doubt.  I thus did not change the USB 2.0 port box cable around yet.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 6:20 P.M.:  A plug and play applet notified me that my new USB 2.0 port box was not plugged into a USB 2.0 port, and it would go faster if I plugged it into one of my USB 2.0 ports connected to the motherboard.  I have it plugged into my USB 2.0 PCI card SYBA USB 2.0 4+1 PORTS RETAIL BOX .  At the moment I only have my 32 meg. USB drive plugged into the USB 2.0 port box, but I will assume the system alert is right, and I will plug it into one of the other spare USB 2.0 ports on the rear of my case connected to the motherboard and not the PCI card.  I think I have a spare USB 2.0 port  available.  I finished going through my email.  Since I have to move the case a bit to get at the rear cables, I will shut down the computer for a minute to change the cable.  However, one does not need to have the computer turned off when plugging in USB devices.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 5:50 P.M.:  The ink order for the Epson Stylus C80 printer included 4 black cartridges, and two each of the tree primary colors for 10 cartridges total.  I put one each of the four cartridges in the printer, and it works just fine.  I have it attached to the Dell backup computer in the bedroom.  However, it is probably my best inkjet printer, so I might move it into the living room to the primary computer setup at some future time, but at the moment, I do not print out that much on the inkjet printers, so I will leave it where it is for now.  Thus for the purchase price of $5 and about $8 in ink for $13 total, I have a very good printer working along with all of the other ones.   I left the spare cartridges in their shipping box to the left of the printer on the desk.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 5:00 P.M.:  I am going through my email.  I emailed Verizon about the credit on my bill.  UPS just delivered the ink for my Epson Stylus C80 printer.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 4:10 P.M.:  I went outside briefly, and I threw out some garbage.  I am still waiting for UPS to deliver the ink cartridges for the Epson Stylus C80 printer.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 3:35 P.M.: Today only online for $40 with special code at bottom of the page Staples.com®. that was easy™. SanDisk 1GB Cruzer Micro  .  I think if the order is over $50, there is free shipping.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 3:05 P.M.:  Interesting device to share data between computers USB 2.0 DirectLink PC to PC Cable - DRIVERLESS! .  One could add on three foot sections of these 3-Foot USB 2.0 A to A M/F Extension Cable (Clear/Silver) USB 2.0  and at the moment what appears to be the same device is $5.01 cheaper USB 2.0 DirectLink PC to PC Cable - DRIVERLESS! CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 2:25 P.M.:  I chatted with a relative.  I tried calling the Verizon business office about the credit that showed up on my account.  One can get them on a Verizon telephone by dialing 1 and then 6, but there number is busy all the time.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 1:25 P.M.:  I went outside, and I checked the building's outside activity, and it seemed pretty much normal for this type of day.   I am curious about some of my neighbors whom sit outside around the building on warmer days.  It seems strange that they never get tanned.  Possibly from the long periods of cold in this area, people do not tan as much in the warmer weather.  I picked up my mail.  I have not yet received my rent bill, so I can not pay it yet.  I made and ate my usual salad www.geocities.com/mikelscott/salad.htm .  Instead of tuna fish, I used a tin of sardines that I chopped.  For the cheddar cheese portion, I used Kraft Cracker barrel baby Swiss cheese.  I also used 15 grape tomatoes.  I used all of the other regular ingredients, but I did not use any homemade hummus.  I ate the salad with a glass of iced tea.  It seems that my normal routines and house keeping routines interfere with my computer routines.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 11:55 A.M.:  I went out after the last message.  I went downtown, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue.  I sat out at various locations.  I stopped by CVS, and I bought two 7 ounce bags of black licorice for $1.19 each, two 9.25 ounce cans of Planters lightly salted cashew nuts halves and pieces for buy one get one free for $4.99 both, two .25 ounce jars of Gold Emblem parsley for .99 each, and two 50% more free packages of 150 caplet Nuprin pain relief formula ibuprofen 200 mg. for $5.29 each plus .14 tax for $20.07 total.  After I completed my walk, I drove down by the waterfront.   I then went by Putnam Trust Bank of New York on Mason Street.  I then went by the Greenwich Hospital Thrift Shop.  I next went by the Greenwich Automotive Exxon service station next to the Greenwich Library, and I bought $16.40 of premium unleaded gasoline at $3.259 a gallon for 78.8 miles driving during the last two weeks at 16.4 miles per gallon driving an average of 13 miles per hour.  I then returned home, and I saw a FedEx truck leaving as I arrived home.  I found a folding chair by the dumpster, and I put it in the rear of my Volvo station wagon with the other folding chair.  My FedEx delivery of 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub (Gray) was left with my next door neighbor, and I got it from my neighbor.  I removed the regular USB 4 port hub placed underneath the right monitor from my primary computer, and I installed the new USB 2.0 hub, and I put the 32 meg. flash drive in it.  I put the old USB 4 port hub connected to the USB 2.0 port on the front of the Northgate Syntax backup computer with the hub placed to its left.  I took the Linksys hub from that location, and I connected it to the one USB port on my Toshiba laptop computer.  All of the ports on my primary computer are USB 2.0, but not the hubs.  I did my vacuuming.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 6:55 A.M.:  I checked with Cablevision on the telephone, and my bills to them were credited to my account on time when I paid them, and I do not owe them anything.  It is just that their web site is not updated as fast.  I will now shut down the computer, and I will clean up, and I will go out.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 6:30 A.M.:  I paid my GEICO insurance premium for October this past September.  I just now paid my Cablevision, Optimum Online, Optimum Voice, Connecticut Light and Power, and Verizon telephone bills.  Although I paid my Verizon telephone bill, they showed that they gave me a $63.45 credit to my account, which would mean that I do not owe them anything.  However, I will check with them first to see what I got the credit for.  I do know years ago, they use to charge me some excessive rates for ordinary services.  On my Cablevision bills, they do not show the current bills paid, which they were paid on the first of the month for the last several months, so in their billing cycle, although I have paid my bills, their accounting does not show that on the internet.  I find it hard to beloved they would be a month behind in crediting my payments to my account.  I will have to call up Verizon and Cablevision to find out about these factors.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 5:50 A.M.:  I lightly toasted two pieces of Arnold frozen multigrain bread, and I spread a few tablespoons of Skippy low fat peanut butter on them, and I cut the sandwich in half, and I ate the sandwich with some iced tea.  Today my order for 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub (Gray) which is normally $6.99 for $6.29 plus free shipping has shipped FedEx Express Tracking Results Detail  www.geeks.com for USB 2.0 4 Port Hub and my order from http://www.ezinkjets.com/ , and instead of using the coupon code "SUMMER25" for 25% off, I used "SUMMER35" for 35% off, and I ordered for my Epson Stylus C80 printer this package T032120B(4),(2)T032220C,(2)T032320M,(2)T032420Y for $22.72 with shipping are suppose to arrive.  The coupon code is good until September 23, 2005 or later has shipped UPS Package Tracking EZinkjets.com .  It would be amusing if Fedex and UPS arrived at the same time.  Thus I will have to be home for the deliveries later on today.  My funds are available to pay bills, so I will now pay some bills online.  CIO   

Note: <888> 09/30/05 Friday 5:20 A.M.:  I went to my 3 P.M. appointment after the last message, and I returned home.  I ate 9 Ritz crackers with 1.25 inch by 1.25 inch by 1/32nds inch slices of Kraft Cracker barrel baby Swiss cheese on them.  I went to bed about 4 P.M..  I had a telephone call from a relative about 9 P.M. and from another relative about 10 P.M..  I woke up at 12:30 A.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with strawberry preserves, a 50% to 50% mixture of Florida orange juice and filtered cold water, vitamins, supplements, and coffee.  I did my house cleaning and watering the plants.  I still have to do the vacuuming later on this morning when I will not disturb my neighbors.  I threw out the garbage and some periodical literature.  I put four new Philips clear DuraMax long life bent tip 15 watt light bulbs in the sconces above the dining room table.  Two of the old bulbs had burned out, so I have two used ones left over.  The new ones are suppose to be good for 2000 hours, and they occasionally have the package of 15 watt bulbs at www.homedepot.com instead of the brighter 25 watt bulbs.  I still have a package of 25 watt frosted.  I prefer the 15 watt bulbs since they do not provide glare with the small linen shades over them.  I have to pay bills later on this morning probably about 6:30 A.M., or I could wait until after I go out for my walk.  I put the air conditioner on low fan drawing in fresh air.  CIO   

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 1:55 P.M.:  I will now shut down the computer, and I will get ready for my 3 P.M. appointment.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 1:35 P.M.:  The Intel video phone program works fine on the primary computer.  I have a 3 P.M. appointment, but I will not go out until just enough time to drive to it because Weather Hazards for Southern Fairfield, CT , the weather is suppose to be windy with possible rain.   CIO

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 1:10 P.M.:  I chatted with a relative.  I opened a 18 ounce can of Progresso New England clam chowder, and I put it in a plastic microwave proof pot with lid, and I heated it on the reheat cycle of the General Electric microwave oven.  I then put the hot soup in one of my two large Cobalt blue soup bowls, and I added a couple of handfuls of Arnold seasoned croutons, and I ate it all with a glass of iced tea.  I will now install the Intel Create and Share software CD on my primary computer.  The doctor said that I also need to get a colonoscopy which they do over at the West Putnam Avenue branch of the Bank of New York.  One needs to have someone drive one home from that procedure, since they give you a local atheistic.  I was suppose to get it done a year ago, but I put it off.  It has also been about eight years, since I have had my eyes checked by Dr. Brownstein.  My relative whom had the hip surgery is doing well, and she is thinking of waiting to return to Vero Beach, Florida after the hurricane season and after she has her roof replaced.  My other relative with her husband will be returning from Sun Valley, Idaho to Vero Beach, Florida on October 12, 2005.  My relative whom had the hip surgery is now thinking about not having me come down to help out in the end of October 2005, since my other relatives should be enough help.  In which case, I might visit Florida in February 2006, but it is still all up in the air, and the hurricane season is not yet over yet.  Remember to keep an eye out on www.geocities.com/mikelscott/weather.htm . CIO 

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 12:15 P.M.:  I cancelled the Vista beta 1 backup to the D: drive because it is too slow.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 11:55 A.M.:  I went out after the last message, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue.  I sat out at various locations.  I stopped by briefly at CVS.  I then drove down by the waterfront.  I then went by Putnam Trust Bank of New York on Mason Street.  I then went by the Greenwich Hospital Thrift shop.  I bought for a $5 an Intel USB  PC Camera Pack.  I then returned home.  I had started the Nero Restore of the DVD backup that I had made of my Microsoft Vista beta 1 configured backup.  When I got home, it was complete.  I tried rebooting the computer into Vista beta 1, and the configured backup worked.  I guess when I reinstalled and restored Windows XP earlier this week and last week, it changed my startup files, so the Vista beta 1 configured would not work.  When I reinstalled Vista beta 1, it restored my startup files, and it now works after the restore.  It is the first boot file, but it does not show up as the XP boot.ini file, but it is a similar file.  Perhaps other files are installed by the Vista beta 1 install that are not restored by the XP and Vista beta 1 restores.  Still Vista beta 1 configured is working just fine.  I ran Norton Speed Disk on the Vista beta 1 drive, and I installed a driver.  I am trying to back up the Vista beta 1 drive to the D: drive, but at the moment it is going very slowly with the XP backup utility, and it says it will take two weeks.  I am hoping it will speed up as it progresses.  I installed the Intel Create and Share software CD on the Northgate Syntax backup computer, and it recognized the Intel USB camera plug and play.  I set the Intel camera on the top center of the left monitor.  However, it does not work with the Creative Monitor program, which I think needs a Creative camera like I have on my primary computer.  It does work with the other video programs like Netmeeting and the Intel Video program.  I installed Office 2003 updates on the Northgate Syntax backup computer.  I will install the Intel Create and Share software CD on the primary computer after I finish trying the Vista beta 1 backup.  The Intel software has an internet communications program which probably will work with my Creative USB camera on the primary computer.  I chatted with a relative.  My doctor's appointment for next Monday has been cancelled.  However, my cholesterol LTL level is 80, which is good.  I was told by the doctor when he called that he will see me one of the times I stop by the clinic for another appointment.  I was told that I would not need to take Lipitor if I quit smoking cigarettes, which I hope to do soon.  I was told if I get down to less than a package a day, I can try the nicotine patch again to try to quit smoking cigarettes.  I went outside briefly, and I picked up my mail.  It is suppose to rain heavily this early afternoon.  I have a 3 P.M. appointment.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 6:25 A.M.:  I will now shut down the computer, and I will clean up, and I will go out.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 6:05 A.M.:  I formatted the Vista beta 1 drive.  I then reinstalled Vista beta 1.  I will not configure it.  I do have the configured version backed up with the Nero backup to DVD.  I also have the Vista beta 1 configured with the Vista backup, but the Vista beta 1 backup does not have a restore function that I can find.  The Nero restore did not work either.  I ate Michael Louis Scott's Pork and Beans with Franks with a glass of iced tea.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/29/05 Thursday 1:55 A.M.:  Well today is Michaelmas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , so it should be a good day for me, since my first name is Michael.  In the old days, it use to be a holiday.  After the last message yesterday morning, I set up the Panasonic 2 line telephone.  I guess it lost its memory because yesterday morning the power blinked for a split second.  I also chatted with a relative.  I ate 15 Ritz crackers with .60 inch by 1 inch by .125 inch pieces of Kraft Cracker barrel baby Swiss cheese.  I went to bed about 11 A.M.. About 5 P.M., I had two telephone calls with nobody answering.  I woke up at 7 P.M., and I ate breakfast of oatmeal with a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with strawberry preserves, a 50% to 50% mixture of Florida orange juice and filtered cold water, vitamins, supplements, and coffee.  I went back to bed until midnight.  I finished programming the Panasonic two line telephone directory with my stored telephone numbers.  It has fixed memory for some functions, but it might lose the stored telephone numbers in case of a power failure.  I made my bed, and I washed the breakfast dishes.  According to FedEx | Track www.geeks.com UPS 2.0 port box , it is due this Friday, and my order from http://www.ezinkjets.com/ , and instead of using the coupon code "SUMMER25" for 25% off, I used "SUMMER35" for 35% off, and I ordered for my Epson Stylus C80 printer this package T032120B(4),(2)T032220C,(2)T032320M,(2)T032420Y for $22.72 with shipping.  The coupon code is good until September 23, 2005 has shipped UPS Package Tracking EZinkjets.com  is also due this Friday.  I will now go through my email.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/28/05 Wednesday 9:35 A.M.:  I  installed the Office 2003 updates that just came out.  I ran Norton Win Doctor 2003 and Ad-awareSE.  The primary computer is running just fine, except for the fact that the Vista beta 1 does not work.  I disabled Microsoft Messenger in case that was causing the problem along with the Net2Phone startup applet.  I chatted with a relative.  When I picked up the Panasonic 2 line telephone all of my stored memory dial numbers had disappeared.  It does not use a battery but fixed memory.  All the problems that I have had with the computer recently and now with the Panasonic 2 line telephone seems to lead me to believe that someone is hacking my Optimum Online connection that serves both the computer and the telephone.  I will now shut down the computer, and I will go to bed soon.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/28/05 Wednesday 8:40 A.M.:  I restored the Nero backup DVD backup of Microsoft Vista beta 1.  While doing this, I ate two scoops of Haagen Dazs 50% less fat dulce de leche ice cream Light Ice Cream Details dulce de leche .  I went outside, and I chatted with a neighbor while doing this.  However, after the restore was completed, Microsoft Vista beta 1 still would not start, and in safe mode it stops at the "crsdisk.sys" file in the \windows\system32\drivers folder.  I researched it, and either there is some other problem, or possibly the beta expired early.  However, since I restored the backup, it should not be expired.  The Nero restore program does not work from windows, so all of the original backup files would have been restored.  I changed my CMOS settings to enable SETI ATA IDE which added more IDE devices and recognized my DVD drivers differently.  I also enabled dual floppies in the CMOS.  Windows XP is working just fine in the primary C: drive.  Since I have configured Vista beta 1, instead of reinstalling which can not be done as a upgrade, I will wait for beta 2 which will permit upgrading and will save my configuration and settings.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/28/05 Wednesday 4:25 A.M.:   My computer system started behaving erratically, and I did a system restore, and it was running fine again.  I then tried reinstalling the update for Tropic Designs : Home of Weather Pulse software - Content (do not install) , and it began behaving erratically again.  I did a system restore to an earlier time, and it ran just fine.  I put the earlier version of Weather Pulse back on the computer, and it is running fine.  However, Microsoft Vista beta 1 will not boot.  I tried changing the "boot.ini" file that I had backed up, and it still would not boot.  I tried to restore my Nero backup of the Vista beta 1, and the power blinked for a second while doing it, so it still will not work.  I will try restoring the Nero backup of Vista beta 1.  Still, it might be a problem with the "boot.ini", since most of the Nero backup of Vista beta 1 was restored, and the odds are it should have worked.   CIO

Note: <888> 09/28/05 Wednesday 1:25 A.M.:  I went through my email.  I will now reboot into Vista beta 1, and I will go through some its newsgroups.  CIO

Note: <888> 09/28/05 Wednesday 1:05 A.M.:  I went out after the last message.  I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I noticed on a flyer on the bench across from the Greenwich Train station, they are having a Car Wash this Saturday October 1, 2005 at the Greenwich Boys and Girls Club for a $5 a car from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. for Hurricane relief.  It was not very busy out downtown.  While driving around the lower level of the Greenwich train station office parking area, I found a collapsible Totes umbrella that I put on the floor of the passenger side front seat of my Volvo station wagon.  There was one fisherman from Michigan down on Steamboat Road.  I returned home.  I refilled the Glade plug-in refill with a 60% mixture of English Leather cologne and 40% mixture of 80% isopropyl alcohol.  I will now go through my email.  CIO 

Note: <888> 09/27/05 Tuesday 10:40 P.M.:  I rested a while.  I put the tea in the refrigerator to become iced tea.   I updated Tropic Designs : Home of Weather Pulse software - Content (do not install, see later note) .  It is a nice evening, and since I slept most of the day, I guess I will go out for a stroll.  I will now shut down the computer.  CIO
