Yesterday Aasim’s machine which runs WinXP refused to boot, nothing wrong with the hardware just something went wrong in Windows – have tried almost everything but I guess re-install would be the shortest answer.
However there is a hitch. Windows distro, oh well – it is not a distro at all. you have to find all the drivers and programs you need from N number of sources. I learn’t this lesson long ago but however despite all precautions I am missing my MapSource Track and Waypoint manager CD, the further aggravating fact is that I cannot download that program – only upgrades are down loadable… If any of the Garmin GPS users have any other idea please let me know. I only use that to download and convert data. Hmmm must look for a Linux based equivalent – after all I presume the USB on that thing just emulates the Serial port or whatever.
With temperature finally crossing 100F summer is here – Mangoes, Watermelon,
holidays I no longer get those…
