Unforgettable . . .

After the usual coffee and spending the morning goofing off, I spent the afternoon fighting Homegroups, Access Controls, and Permissions.

Why does Microsoft make it so %$#$ hard to allow one computer to talk to another? All I wanted to do was let one machine access the QuickBooks data file on another one.

I spent about 3 hours wrestling Homegroup settings, Access Control settings, and Permission settings. rebooting, resetting, and then trying it all again.

But finally I got it working, and the client was happy, and I get paid by the hour so I’m happy. Apparently they’d already had two other people try to get it working with no success. It’s always nice to have a client tell you, “We sure are glad you’re back in town.”

By then it was about 4pm, so after dropping off some pants to be hemmed, I headed back to the rig to pick up Jan for supper.

We ended up at the Chili’s up in Kemah (or as Nick spells it, “Kema”). I tried their new Spicy Chicken and Sausage Soup, and it was really spicy and really good. Glad I’ve got a replacement for my previous favorite, Chicken and Green Chili, that they’ve discontinued. The waitress said I was the third person this weekend to complain about them dropping it.

Along with the soup, I had my usual Caribbean Salad with Chicken, while Jan had her usual Margarita Chicken. Do you sense a pattern here?


Finishing up, I was happy to see that only one of the TV shows we watch has been cancelled, and that was 666 Park Avenue. I think the problem was that it started slow, building up the suspense before things really started happening, and then it really got good. But by then it was too late.

They only did 13 shows, so I’m sure we’ll be left hanging like so many times before, when other shows have been cancelled.

I remember reading a while back that if they cancelled shows in the 70’s like they do today, shows like MASH and All in the Family would have been cancelled before they became successful. Both didn’t become popular until they went into summer reruns and people found them.

FWIW these are the network shows we watch pretty regularly. I’m sure I probably missed a few, but this is most of them.

  1. Gee Greg, our iMacs do that automatically

  2. Sorry, but they don’t.

    In fact, Macs are usually more trouble than PC’s.

    I wasn’t talking about being able to see files on each others computers. PC’s will do this with no problems also.

    This is two computers being able to access the same file at the same time, and both of you editing the same file at the same time, without screwing things up.

    You and Miss Terry try to open and edit the same file in Word and see what happens.

    It’s a whole nother can of worms.

  3. Hmmm…where is Body of Proof? We love that show.

  4. Vickie,

    According to TVGuide.com, Body of Proof will be coming back ‘mid-season’, which I guess means after the first of the new year.

  5. Well, you can try at least to write a headquarters of a restaurant and request reinstatement of a favorite, etc. but it seems to me that the times I have written to request much of anything, nothing ever changes. We eat some in Ruby Tuesdays when away from the apt. But an otherwise yummy noodle salad is most often simply LOADED with what I call spam…Y U C K Y!! I have written numerous times requesting they leave it out (I ALWAYS pick it out, so my portion is wasted anyway) PLUS there is always a huge bowl of the stuff on the salad buffet anyway. But it has always fallen on deaf ears!! Maybe there are those who simply cannot add their own to their plate and their voices are more numerous!!
