I put a crow bar into one of my savings accounts and purchased a Kipon Mount Adapater, so I could use the most excellent Canon L glass with the Olympus EM1 body. I did notice that it is slower to focus than it would be on the Canon Body. I... Continue reading

Wing is now in the process of going through the flu I had. He has the aches and chills, along with the cough. I walked into the bedroom, he looked up at me and in a croaky voice asked "How did you survive this?" I'm feeling better, but no where... Continue reading

This bug is really nailing my ass to the floor. Wing has it, too, but it doesn't seem as severe. Every part of my body that has had any trauma, or injury is throbbing like a bad tooth. Note to self: no matter if Wing forgets, *I* will make sure... Continue reading

Keito is Genetically Male, but now in the peeing department, architecturally female. And he is peeing all on his own.. because he CAN. Still has feeding tube in because he won't eat there, but he is getting all he needs to eat and all the fluids that way. Barring meteor... Continue reading

Back to feeling cold and in a lot of pain (ribs, diaphragm, large joints). Got up, took some ibuprofen with codeine, and got into the shower. I normally take 4 min shower, with the occasional 10 min when I am washing my mop. Not this time. Lets just say I... Continue reading

It's as if the support just can't deviate from their script. Acer TouchPortal - from day one, I couldn't get it to connect to Facebook or Flickr. I even did a factory reset to make sure it wasn't something I had installed blocking it. Still, nothing. So after a long... Continue reading

And he's feeling much better. Still not ready to be discharged and come home, but so much more active, smoochie, and alert. He snuggled with me and gave me such a hard headboop it hurt my forehead. I didn't mind in the least. Came home and took off the hoodie... Continue reading

Here's hoping I get a reply. One of our cats is currently in the Veterinary Hospital. The reason I am writing this isn't about coverage, as we have it, but the payment arrangements. Now I know that too often veterinary practices get stiffed on what they are owed, and that... Continue reading

Vet called... Keito's bladder re-obstructed, although not as severely as the catheter went in much easier. It was a mucus blockage rather than the hard one, meaning the left over of infection combined with inflammation. Also, since he hasn't eaten since Friday, feeding tube will be necessary to prevent him... Continue reading

Wing and I just got back from Murdoch Emergency Vet Centre where we visited Keito. He is up, alert, bright eyed, smoochie, but still won't eat. Vet said not to worry about that because it's not unusual for cats to go on a 'hunger strike' when they are at the... Continue reading

I use Brita Faucet filters, the older version and the filters are getting harder and harder to come by. I managed to find some on eBay but the postage for just two of them was more than the filters were ($41 for the filters, $44 to ship them). So, headed... Continue reading

Wow, sometimes troubleshooting failures can pay off. I have Audible audiobooks, and use AudibleManager. I did a data migration which is essentially a system restore. I kept getting error about my desktop not being activated. I would shut that down, and everything would still work. Kept getting popup that there... Continue reading

Everything is up and running as it should. One thing won't update, Windows Explorer 11. Oddly enough, when I tried to update it via downloading the update file, doing a clean boot with updating services enabled, I got message that the update didn't apply to my system. Fine, I hid...

aka data migration, 2nd attempt. After sending diagnostic reports to Zinstall and my trading emails, they called me (gawd I wish they would pay attention to the time difference. I clearly stated UTC +8 Perth) but they told me that disabling Malwarebytes isn't good enough, that it has to be... Continue reading

Ok, for some odd reason, CS6 won't kicks back all Camera Raw files as not the right kind of document. And OnOne PhotoSuite 9 keeps erroring out with a strange code (have forwared it to OnOne) CS6 64bit Bridge isn't reading Camera Raw files, but CS6 32bit does. So, for... Continue reading

Sort of. It seems to have migrated the data over, but I have already had a few hiccups. Adobe Photoshop CS6 is grouching that I am past my trial period, and giving me "Can not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document" when it comes... Continue reading

Although it seems it's taking so long to migrate the image file to the external SSD I have hooked up, I know that it would have taken a helluva lot longer to have had to deactivate, reinstall, reboot over and over. Weeks before I had everything up and running the... Continue reading

Why? Because some stupid idiot at Adobe thought that updating the update checker should overwrite/take over for the CS6 Adobe Application Manager with their overbloated Creative Cloud update checker and then not have the %#$%$$^#%%# thing NOT work when you click on Update. So right now, by way of CS5/Updates... Continue reading

Although I have been 'lapping' the back yard, I had no way of keeping track of what I was doing, or progress, so installed a pedometer app on my phone. I also have audio books installed so I don't get bored and stop too soon. The only problem is this:... Continue reading

I finally pinned down why I feel someone's judgment was so unprofessional and so wrong. Here is a clear explanation: I don't like asparagus. I mean I loathe the stuff. I think it's the nastiest vegetable/plant in the world. It is on my 'hit list' of what should go into... Continue reading

I was contacted by a CatMax representative. She said she was going to refund my credit card $400. Funny thing is I was overcharged $450.07. Hello ********; when you called today to get my credit card details, you said I was being refunded $400. According to P*** C*****, I was... Continue reading

CatMax keeps trying to get me to accept goods in place of giving me a refund for being overcharged. We don't need or have the room for other items. We have cat towers (3), mini towers (2), scratch posts (2), hammocks (2) What I don't have is the $400+ I... Continue reading

I got a response regarding the repair cost: Hi Sandra yes you are correct on this being over charged. the problem is is should have just been a call out fee plus materials. but was done as a quote of pictures and spread sheet. so here is what you should... Continue reading

CatMax got back to me, sort of, trying to make excuses for their exorbitant charges (remember, I thought the damanged mesh wall was being replaced, and a few holes patched) > Please see a break down of the total price of the job that you requested > totaling $ 711.29.... Continue reading

Some rats attracted to our neighbors chicken coop invaded our cat enclosure. They chewed through it and it needed to be repaired. I called Catmax, sent them photos, and was given a quote of $711.29 to repair the damage. Seeing as it cost us $2100 for the original installation, I... Continue reading
