Apologies for my absence this week - I've had laptop issues. When I turned on the laptop I got the message: "The User Profile Service service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded." Turns out some update has altered something. Now, I'm nervous when it comes to fiddling with Windows Registry, which is what I have to do to resolve the problem, so I have to wait until I can get together with my S-i-L for him to have a go. He's an IT boff, thank goodness.
So, in the meantime, I've switched on the business PC and am doing this blog entry from there. I like to keep business and pleasure separate normally, and also try not to use the PC too often as it does guzzle more power than the laptop.
With that explained, down to business...
For those of you who were following my blog during the sale of our town house, you'll recall that I was horrified at the thought getting rid of all our 33.3 inch long playing records. What you don't know is that I didn't :)
There are just so many memories wrapped up in those LP's.
I placed them in a cardboard box.
But - I couldn't ditch them.
And neither could RMan ditch his amplifier, CD player and turntable. We figured that they would just consume too much of our stored solar power.
So - they were schlepped with us to the farm.
And they stayed in their packaging, which slowly got more and more covered in dust and other items. Isn't it funny how a surface - any surface - immediately becomes a possible repository for something - anything.
Well, a week or so ago, we were feeling reminicient.
That resulted in RMan hauling the hi-fi equipment into the lounge, placing it in the empty cupboard which had been "in waiting", putting it all together and plugging it in.
|Only 129 watts is required to run our amp and CD|
The amp and CD player only consumed 129 watts of power. The amp and the belt driven record player must consume less than that!
The record player is already connected, so now all I have to do is find the box of LP's, bring it into the house, find somewhere in the house to store the LP's and we're definitely back in business.
Happy Days :)
