I'm going to Mars next year. At least my name is. NASA is inviting the public to send their names on the next rover set for launch next year and touch down on Mars in February of 2021. I submitted my name and got this.

Was waiting for this. There is actually an image of the event horizon. Gotta love it.

Cruising on Wikipedia I came across the first portable computer aka a wannabe laptop, the Osborne 1. Its intial cost was US $1795.00 and it came with US $1500.00 in software. It ran the CP/M 2.2 Operating System, It had no onboard battery so you had to plug it in wherever you went. The display was a 5 inch screen and use of single sided, single density floppies x 4. 

Excerpts from the article:

An update on me. Just got back from seeing my cancer doc. Mine is stage 3b adenocarcinoma. Non small cell lung cancer and I'm going to be treated systemically (I think that's what it's called) with Keytruda. My doctor says the markers needed are there, which is a good thing. However being that it is stage 3 it won't go away forever and I'll have to deal with it as is. I'm going to be getting a port installed (good choice of words?) beneath my right shoulder simply because it'll be easier than st...

This popped up on the news a couple of hours ago. Two well known actresses, a co-founder of a global law firm and other assorted very rich people shelled out millions of dollars to get their kids into elite colleges. Why am I not surprised.

Well like the title says I'm back in the hospital because my COPD kicked up big time. Shortness of breath, ugly loud coughs and coughing up ugly phlegm. The mass in my lung is still there and I'm to see a cancer doc soon for palliative care options. Could be surgery or chemo or radiation. The surgery part I'm hoping is a last resort. I'll do the other nonsense and be a bald person, no problem. Then I can make other people jealous. I've had three breath therapies since I've been here. Got here ar...

I edited my original post about my hp being back up and running, it isn't. First it slowed down to a crawl and I get a stop code that says unmountable boot volume. I tried booting it up with the USB hoping to repair it. No go as the repair screen never came up. Now I'm trying to reinstall Windows and the first time it came back with an error message that says cannot install Windows on specified drive partition. I did not have this problem before. I'm literally at my wits end with this. Refurbish...

This morning I turned on the laptop and it took twenty five minutes to boot. Started last night with all three browsers, Chrome, Edger and IE freezing and refusing to work. On the desktop...everything slowed to a crawl. Five minutes or better just to open explorer. Then a blue screen comes up and says unmountable boot volume. Googled it and followed the instructions. Boot from the USB choose repair system, that never came up. Hard shut down wait a few seconds and hit the power button again. I pr...

Never have I ever seen this. I went looking for disk cleaner. Imagine my surprise when I saw an empty folder.   Went online looking for a solution and was given three different ways to access them. From control panel, settings and going to all apps and windows administrative tools only to find that folder empty as well. You can't access what isn't there to access. What kind of a clusterf**k is this!?

Yesterday I uploaded a rainmeter skin that had a few mistakes and didn't work. I fixed the issue and uploaded an update. The first upload I asked an admin to remove because that one doesn't work properly. The one that does work has a 3 star rating and that one does work. Its not the rating that's an issue. Its just to identify the working one. Can someone fix this please.

So this is my question...

   We have a game going since 2009, the ban game. Very popular too, people come from all over the place to ban stuff. Another popular game was the Borg game. It got kinda tired and retired. So, since it is pumpkin season why not a game for the holiday called the Pumpkin game and instead of using Borg we use Patch. For example...I am Pumpkin so and so of Patch, make me a pie. Or some such. I dunno, it sounded good at the time.

   It all started with Chrome acting up more than usual. It took its time opening and going to other sites and sometimes it would hang. I've gotten used to it by now. Then it gets updated and things go south in a hurry. After a bit with Chrome open it suddenly decided not to work. Wouldn't scroll, couldn't use the scroll bar, click on sites in the bookmark bar and nothing happens. The only things working are the min/max close buttons, that's it.

   I close the browser thin...

Just updated ASC to version 12 and IObit's Uninstaller to version 8. They've been busy. Second screenshot shows the new GUI with the animation and the first I didn't believe until I saw it. With Uninstaller v8 you can now uninstall the program by right clicking on the desktop icon, systray icon and another I don't remember lol.
