    Back in the day I was a mountain biking madman and we did a very long ride out in George Washington Natl Forest and its was Jan, or Feb... a cold day, snow still in the shady spots. Somewhere along the way we lost one of our riders in the group. We all returned to the trailhead mid-aft and waited, and waited, for our lost rider to come out of the woods. We were all cold & hungry and darkness was coming, Cliff bars don't really hit the spot when you are tired, worn out, and cold.

    So I did a run for some food to the nearest town miles away while others waited. Got some pizza, put the box on the engine compartment and arrived back at the trailhead at dusk. Fortunately our lost rider returned while I was gone and we didn't have to call the Rangers.

    That was the best damn pizza some of those guys had ever had. I cheated - and ate a slice at the pizza place. :-)

    So, I was business tripping all last week in Bloomington, Mn. I got back late Friday and planned a quiet Sunday until my daughter asked for a sidecar lunch trip to Lu and Joe's. How could I say no!!! She won't be 9 forever.

    Kept the old monitor, don't replace what isn't broke...

    Had to stop there to meet Jodi, previous plans that shouldn't/couldn't be changed.
    Center Stage, Shakespeare in Love, never saw the movie so I can't compare but fun show.

    Was back at it Sunday after a tag grab, sat on the grab till mid afternoon in case someone else was out playing. the drop might be late, so if someone wants it I won't protest...

    Sunday after much stress on my part everything still doesn't work :cob After nearly 2 hours on the phone with tech support I was told "Oh, some versions of 10 just don't work" . This never came up as a thing when asking "Exactly, what OS do I need?". :devildog
    A "ticket" was submitted and I have an appointment with more of my co-op's techies soon.
    Took out some frustration at the gym this morning...

    Happy (effing) Monday!

    Another 1-1/2 hours wasted. Was finally told I need my IT personal to look into my security settings because the pc isn't recognizing me as admin and is blocking the updating of Java.

    There was CAKE!
    [​IMG]
    A long-time customer brought the shop half a cake! That was nice. Invited to the party would have been nice too :dirtdog.
    Heck, but we got cake :D.

    Got the tech in the shop working, finally. There was an actual problem with the new PC. Had to go back to Micro Center* and they it swapped for another.

    One reason why today doesn't suck. Got his message from my wife,
    "I have checked out- Avengers 1 & 2, Thor Dark World and Winter Soldier. I think that will catch us up well enough."
    This because, last night it was noticed the Civil War is available on Netflix and not 5 minutes in after many questions I pointed out there are a few movies that may have taken care of those questions.

    Excellent! My wife once asked who Steve McQueen is. That made for a few movie nights.
