I got an email from H Power Computing asking if I wanted to replace my motherboard or not on the M2800. Apparently they didn’t read my last message to them telling them go ahead as a go ahead. So since I had the chance, I rolled that decision back and told them never mind, just restore it to the Windows 7 OS running… Continue Reading “Done with old laptop’s upgrade effort”
H Power Computing also messaged me about my M2800 laptop having Win10 installed. It’s not installing. They believe the motherboard is bad. So they quoted ordering a replacement (used from overseas) at $378.00. WTF do I do, abandon the effort with money already sunk in for the Windows 10 upgrade and the… Continue Reading “Fixing this old laptop might get expensive!!”
It’s been over a week since I started trying to upgrade the old laptop (Dell M2800). I have been unusually patient, and it hasn’t aggravated me the way something like this normally would.

It keeps erroring out. I purchased the Win10 upgrade so I’m kinda committed or will just waste my money because it’s… Continue Reading “Old Dell laptop on ventilator”
Alas the junk computer peripherals I had to dig out of the closet in order to make my telework workstations more functional. I had to re-use an old keyboard for my PSA workstations laptop, and it was already worn. In the 4 months that I’ve been using iot, the keys wore out even more. I had to use labelmaker … Continue Reading “My Ghetto Keyboard”
I saw this in an email titled Why You Must Avoid Nulled WordPress Themes & Plugins (9 Reasons). Now, I in my heyday did my share of downloading pirated stuff for use on my web page and other uses like music (remember Napster? Oh, I’m the old person here?) and software. Not so much anymore, for several… Continue Reading “Avoid “Nulled” WordPress Themes”
Not sure why I didn’t capture this before since I did it for the music collection. To update I had to google it all over again. So… future reference!

This has been quite an annoyance for the longest time, but it never got to the point of wanting to look up an answer ’till now.
When I’m entering info into a spreadsheet I’ll have a default font size, color, face, etc.. When I add a hyperlink to data in a cell, it always changes the font size and… Continue Reading “Excel: Stop font size/face from Changing in URL”
After happening to browse thru a site called MyThemeShop for WP themes, I got this email about common WP errors and fixes that’s on their site. I thought this may come in handy in the (near?) future as I fiddle more and more with this WP platform.… Continue Reading “Common WordPress Errors & Fixes”
