Dave the Punk Rock Cat Kicks Out the Jams Page 31

Oh man, so wow, this took awhile right?
Here's the story.
I've been having computer problems for awhile. Problems with slowdown and crashes and the like. Conventional means of remedying the problem were not effective. Luckily, salvation came by means of an early Christmas present. An old co-worker/friend of my fathers dropped off an unused tower, full of parts and pieces. Some of which were better than mine. So I promptly took my tower apart and started doin' some SWAPPIN'!
It was kind of a project, mostly because I didn't REALLY know what I was doing. A lot of it was trial and error, but in the end, I put together a pretty cohesive little machine, which runs marginally better than what I had.
Here's the kicker though. In my mad quest of part-swapping, I installed a brand new boot drive that had been recently formatted and refitted with old version of Windows XP. It had, absolutely, ZERO drivers installed. Drivers for noting! Could not get online, my printer/scanner didn't work, I didn't even have sound O_O
So I went on a search for drivers, which was mostly fruitless because I didn't quite know what I was looking for or how to find out.


So I got really sidetracked by all that before I had the time to do an actual systematic search for what I was missing, which I just recently finished!

So here we are, Dave the Punk rock Cat's triumphant return to the internets!

Book will be out in about a month's time.

Yeah, big announcement.

Happy New Year, by the way.
