Re: Crazy Dog Owner

Slightly off-topic but while sifting through all the stuff on my old laptop deciding what to keep I found these tidbits some of you as dog owners might appreciate. 1. A Dog's Purpose? (from a 6-year-old). Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker....

Re: East Thrave Cottage

Wow! Just took a peek at those photos and suddenly got the distinct impression that I had been dropped into the next Carol Reed mystery. :cool: Around here the whole clan is trying to figure out what to do with the huge farmhouse that's been in the family since 1818, empty since my dad passed in 2012.

Re: Windows 10 - DVD wont play!

Updated to latest AMD crimson driver suite. Nice. Checked for yellow driver flags. Found: No drivers available for SM Bus Controller and USB Controller. Drivers were located elsewhere and installed. Windows updates long neglected due to expired anti virus. 43 important updates. Downloaded and instal...

Re: Windows 10 - DVD wont play!

Hmm. I should have thought of that, alas though, it didn't work for me. Perhaps I should install the new AMD catalyst suite instead of being reminded every time, check for updates. We'll see. It wasn't always like this, 3-4 weeks ago it was fine. :scratch:

Re: Windows 10 - DVD wont play!

I have Windows 10 now on my Local Disk (C:) and Windows 7 on Local Disk (F:) and I too rarely use 7 anymore. However on those occasions when I need to use 7 for some older game or such I get no response from my mouse devices (1 corded and 1 wireless) and the only thing I can do is hit the reset butt...

For some reason it still seems to be enforcing the 256MB rule here. :scratch:

Re: We've Set a Record!

So far this season the most snowfall around here was the ten inches (25.4cm) that fell back on Friday Feb. 5. Since it started out as rain it really stuck to the trees. It's mostly gone now. Around this time last year we got 30+ in. (76+ cm), I think it was winter storm Marcus. I tried uploading a p...

Re: Gabrielle Kniught 3

I already have the cd version for Gabe 3. OK, lets work with that on Windows 10. First thing you'll need is an installer patch that allows all the discs to be loaded on your hard drive. The one I'm using can be found HERE under the G's. Use this instead of the GK3.exe that comes on the first cd. Yo...

Re: Wireless fence brand

None of the underground systems are cheap. If I recall the entire package (hardware, wiring, training) was around $1200 for approx. 3/4 acre containment, half yard half woods. Almost two years have gone by and most of the flags are gone but the dog clearly understands (aside from 2-3 incidents cross...

Re: Wireless fence brand

I had THIS SYSTEM installed for Ruby. The machine digs the trench and lays the wire at the same time so it doesn't take very long. Also the trainer was quite good and it only took her two sessions to acclimate the dog.
