Rainbows and Computers that Work

It's been a crazy month. Starting a new job, Aux. Pioneering, lot's of activities. It's had it's ups and downs, but it was good.

Today was a nice touch. On the way to work I saw a pretty nice rainbow. It wasn't the entire rainbow, but both ends. (The top was missing.)

I also did some work on my system to fix a problem I was having with my RAM. I couldn't use both chips of my Dual Channel OCZ RAM. I also couldn't tweak the BIOS settings for RAM because the motherboard was very limited.

I got a new ASUS board which booted right up with both sticks of RAM. Later though, I got the same Windows Stop errors. But I was able to go into the BIOS and tweak the settings for latency and such, getting it to work with no errors.

However, I'm also trying to use my system less. I'm wrapping up my projects for my old boss. I'll eventually end up with this box as a media box, feeding a Hauppage set-top unit.

So, getting closer to our Wyoming trip. What's new in your world?

New info for .Net coders

We don't know everything, but everybody knows something. How can you glean the answers to your questions from the internet. is a great tool, but sometimes, instead of a back-hoe you only need a spade. So, to search for .Net stuff, try this: This is a focused search for your .Net answers.

I've also heard some things about Singletons at my new job. What is a Singleton? One of the links that popped up on was this link: Interesting...

Wow... almost a month!

We had 136 with 1 partaker on April 2nd. Our bible studies came, so that was nice.

Okay, the new job. I like it.

I have to get acclimated to the new type of work environment, but as for technical skill, I'm not as far behind as I was afraid I would be. I still have a lot to learn, and it's a big project, but it's VB .Net 1.1. So I don't have to get used to a new language right now.

I'll try to find topics I can talk about but for now, just getting used to the routine and such.

All else is well.
