Re: Migration to Windows 10 - OMG!

Got a WIN 10 machine about 3 weeks ago.  I hate it.  The WIN 10 environment sucks !  Seems it doesn’t like to send attachments and hates my Canon digital camera software.

 

I got hold of a WIN 7 machine which I have as yet to get running due to time and work. Don’t know why they keep messing with different version of WIN…  maybe it’s time to go back to DOS ?   😊   ha-ha !

Subject: [070Club] Migration to Windows 10 - OMG!

 

Well finally bit the bullet and updated my shack computer to windows10..OMG what a nightmare..Sure the windows install part went pretty smooth, but getting all the drivers to work with all the ham gear was a real trip..Microsoft is so helpful that they insisted that the drivers that were installed were the 'best Available' driver, despite the fact that they didnt work with any of my usb to serial cables and external sound card. Really had to dig into windows and turn off all that 'helpful' software that checks for 'signatures' in the drivers to make sure they are microsoft approved, and to turn off driver updates so once you do get the old drivers installed windows doesnt do you the favor of overwriting them with new ones that dont work. And the for the final insult I got the programs running but they couldn't hear any FT8 or PSK signals from the radio. After 2 days of searching I found out that once again, windows was doing us a favor to protect our privacy and required you to go into the control panel and grant access to any Apps that want to use the microphone input.....Ahhhhhhhhh!

 

Well I finally got wsjt-x and FLDigi running on my laptop with windows10...that means windows 11 is just around the corner I am sure. FLDigi has come a long way since I used it a long time ago. You can set it up to operate pretty much like HRD and still have the hundred bucks in your pocket that you didnt spend on HRD...YAY!.

 

I hope you guys are having a better time with technology than this old ham is..Bring back the tubes!!

 

Look for this feeble signal on the bands.

I was not on pain meds at the time.  they stopped those on me only a week after the surgery and needless to say my knee hurt really good after that.  I was taking Advil and Tylenol which only took the edge off but did help!!  So, I guess no excuse except for old age (Can I use that as one)??  hihi

lol, you might be right on the money!

A fair portion of my psk31 QSOs were made while my broken leg had me immobilized (and on pain meds).  I would like to thank everyone who put up with my fumble fingered operating during that period.

Really.  You cannot believe how much opiate pain relief messes up your brain until you’re on them for a longish period.  One day, not too bad.  One week and you feel like your brain was sucked out and replaced with wood chips.  Four weeks and you’re so messed up you barely notice that you now have a single digit IQ.

Thanks Rick — Nah,  I goofed up because of my knee surgery and I missed 6 and 7 June, so I’ll need to wait until then to complete it but I will upload a log soon.  I’ve only got 4 days left to fill in:  12 and 19 Oct and then the 6 and 7 June --

Dan-

Glad that you got your contact!  Yes, the propagation is pretty bad right now, but I think a lot of people are either just not getting on or have migrated to FT8 since it is so much easier when prop is poor.  I have to own that I'm in the first category.  Haven't been on as much as I should/could.  

Haven't seen you upload a log since May 27, but if you have filled all the days you needed since that last upload, by my calculations, you only need 10/20 and 10/21 to complete 366!  I've marked the calendar and will be looking for you about 0000 UTC on both those days!

Hey Gang !

 

Worked him  back in Feb 2017 and thought he was a pirate/slim, but I was mistaken.  It was fishy because beam was aimed on Europe and it seemed wrong direction.  Anyhow, this came through on LoTW this morning. 

 

Guess the old adage WFWL  (Work First Worry Later) applies here.  Glad I didn’t delete this one from the log and stuck it in LoTW !   There is hope for those of you who also worked him in Feb 2017.
