Los Alamitos and technical difficulties

Today's photo shows Downtown Los Alamitos in about 1920. Note the dirt roads, false front Western buildings and the sugar factory in the background. You can see why Hollywood filmmakers used Los Alamitos as a location for shooting westerns. The image comes from the Orange County Archives.

I'm afraid my computer at home is seriously screwed up at the moment. Accordingly, I'm not posting much to this blog or even getting much access to my home email account. My apologies. I hope to get the problems dealt with over the next week or so. Thanks for your patience. (Not that I really gave you a choice.)

Bummer about the computer.

Hate computer troubles. Had to replace both my laptop and desktop over the last 6 months. Good news is that you can buy a whole lot of computer for not much money these days.

P.S. Hope you backed up all of your important stuff ;)

Gotta love those dirt roads. We are very spoiled these days. Good computer thoughts going your way.

I have one of these mirrored RAID-array setups, and one of the two drives died. I was told that (in theory) you can stick an idenitical drive on the port where the defunct one was and everything will be back to hunky-dory.

Not so much. Now NOTHING works, and I can't even put things back the way they were. This is progress.

Yes, luckily I was also backing most of my data up onto yet ANOTHER drive -- But I'd still FAR prefer to just go back to all my old softwear, settings, etc. And the computer isn't nearly old enough to need replacing in its entirity. Grrrrrr.....
