07/31/15 Friday 4:15 P.M..  I  went to my 1:30 P.M. appointment early.  I chatted with a relative on my wireless while waiting, and I read a five year old copy of Architecture Digest.  After my appointment, I sat downtown for a while.  It was quite busy.  I then went by the A&P Fresh.  I bought a 7 ounce package of Oscar Meyer deli sliced Virginia ham for $4.49, a four pack of blueberry muffins for $4.49, two 7 ounce Banquet maple sausage links for $1.33 and $1.34, a quart of Dannon low fat vanilla yogurt for $3.49, a six pack of America's Choice large eggs expire August 28, 2015 for $1.89, a pound of baby carrots for $1.99, bananas for .79 a pound for $1.19, buy one get one free of six packs of Thomas' English muffins for $4.39 both for $25.53 total.  They are not on sale, but since there was a store label on their display case with that price, they gave me them for that price.  I then went by Putnam Shell at 401 West Putnam Avenue, and I bought $8.60 of V-Power self service premium gasoline for $3.579 a gallon for 2.404 gallons at odometer reading of 110911 miles for 25.2 miles driven since Tuesday July 21, 2015 for 10.483 miles per gallon in local traffic.  I then returned home, and I picked up the mail, and I put away my groceries.  I printed out the Microsoft Sunset Income versus Spending report for July 2015, and I have one copy ready to mail with a 49 cent forever stamp to an interested relative.  CIO

<888> 07/31/15 Friday 10:00 A.M..  I am just about ready to eat a Marie Callender corn chowder chicken pot pie with a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.  I will then have a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetner and milk.  CIO

<888> 07/31/15 Friday 9:45 A.M..  On the Dell Latitude E6400 laptop with Windows 10, I am now doing an Aomei backup to the Toshiba 1 TB SATA drive in the Rosewill external USB SATA hard drive holder.  I will then do an Aomei backup of the IBM ThinkCentre with Windows 10 in front of the mahogany bureau to the Western Digital 160 GB SATA hard drive in the Rosewill external USB SATA hard drive holder.  CIO

<888> 07/31/15 Friday 9:05 A.M..  I finished configuring the Lenovo ThinkCentre with Windows 10 and activating it.  It is the Lenovo ThinkCentre on the oak dining table.  I am now doing an Aomei backup of it to the Seagate 1 TB SATA drive in the external Rosewill USB SATA drive holder.  I chatted with a friend and a relative twice.  I have a 1:30 P.M. appointment this afternoon.  CIO

<888> 07/31/15 Friday 3:45 A.M..  I paid my http://optonline.net/  Digital Cable TV, Optimum Boost Plus, Optimum Voice, and my http://www.cl-p.com/ electricity bill and my www.verizon.net bill.  My current Optimum bill was about $199, which is about $65 for high speed Cable Modem, $35 for Optimum Voice long distance and about $99 for premium Cable TV.  However that includes $25 in discounts for all three packages which covers the two cable boxes which are about $12 and taxes other fees.  CIO

<888> 07/31/15 Friday 2:50 A.M..  On the Lenovo ThinkCentre on the oak dining table, I have Windows 7 original install restored and activated. I will now try to install Windows 10 on it.  It will take a bit of time.  I was moving something into the corner of the apartment by the entrance door, and the wall clock fell off the wall and hit me on the top of head.  I seem to be all right.  I put the wall clock back up more securely.  CIO

<888> 07/31/15 Friday 2:25 A.M..  I chatted with a relative at 5 P.M..  I woke up at 12:30 A.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.   I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up.   I restored tha Aomei backup of Windows 7 to the IBM ThinkCentre on the oak dining table, so it is now back to normal.  I am also restoring the Aomei backup of the new Windows 7 install on the Lenovo ThinkCentre on the oak dining table.  CIO

<888> 07/30/15 Thursday 3:25 P.M..  The problem with the LAN was on the 16 port Netgear Switch, I had one cable coming out of it and going back into it, which I removed.  I connected the LAN cable for the Dell Optiplex 760 usff to the TrendNet switch, so I don't need to turn on the Netgear wireless to use it.  On the IBM ThinkCentre on the oak dining table the Windows 10 upgrade will not activate, and the IBM video card is not recognized and no driver is available for it, so I will return it back to Windows 7 probably tomorrow.  I chatted with a relative.  I picked up the mail.  I will now shut down the primary work computer, and I will eat a blueberry muffin, and then I will go to bed.  CIO

<888> 07/30/15 Thursday 12:55 P.M..   I have the Lenovo ThinkCentre to the right of the Dell Optiplex 760 usff desktop configured with Windows 10.  It seems to work fine, but the Microsoft Sunset program will not work with it, although it did in the final beta.  I am doing an Aomei backup of it to the Seagate 1 TB SATA hard drive in the Rosewill USB SATA external drive holder.  CIO

<888> 07/30/15 Thursday 10:25 A.M..  I went outside, and I threw out the garbage.  I sat outside for a while.  I am still configuring the Lenovo ThinkCentre Windows 10 setup.  I am also installing Windows 10 32 bit upgrade on the IBM ThinkCentre on the oak dining table.  I had a problem with its network connection, so I disconnected its TrendNet USB LAN, and I have the LAN cable plugged into the CPU.  I took a fourth of a head of Cello iceberg lettuce, and I ripped it up into small pieces in a large soup bowl with one sliced tomato.  I seasoned it with garlic powder, ground black pepper, Italian spices, celery salt, Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning, a quarter cup of grated parmesan and Romano cheese, 3 ounces of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese cut into 1.5 inch by 3/8th inch by .25 inch pieces and I put Ken's blue cheese dressing and extra virgin olive oil on it.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.  I am downloading and burning the Win 10 Pro X32 and X64 and the Windows 10 Home X32 and X64 DVDs in English.  CIO 

<888> 07/30/15 Thursday 5:40 A.M..  On the Lenovo ThinkCentre to the right of the Dell Optiplex 760 usff I have Windows 7 Home Premium back on the machine and activated, and I am now installing the 64 bit Windows 10 upgrade.  Once that is installed, I still have to configure it, which will take a while.  CIO

<888> 07/30/15 Thursday 5:10 A.M..  I have Windows 10 Professional installed and activated on the Dell Latitude E6400 laptop and the IBM ThinkCentre in front of the mahogany bureau.  I have not backed them up yet, since I am not sure I want to delete my Windows 7 backups.  I am now installing Windows 7 Home Premium on the Lenovo ThinkCentre to the right of the FIC server which had been a beta machine.  I have to configure it.  The Windows 7 backup for it was not recognized and the Aomei backup restore would not work.  CIO

<888> 07/30/15 Thursday 2:05 A.M..  I chatted with a friend at 4 P.M..  I woke up at 11 P.M..  On the Dell Latitude E6400 laptop, I restored the Windows 7 backup.  However, Windows 7 does not let one install a Microsoft Log On Name, so I am now reinstalling the Windows 10 Upgrade.  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.   I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO 

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 2:05 P.M..  Synching the apps used to be a setting in Windows 8 that they took out of  Windows 10 for some odd reason.  I picked up the mail.  The order with tracking number of "1ZX79947YW30986946" at www.ups.com on the order for http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?sdtid=8002703&SID=0770e05c98f047538baa2b02cd7a4a68&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&Item=N82E16827140052&cm_sp= for $9.99 with promo code "EMCAVNP66" and $1.99 shipping for $11.98 total arrived.  The first issue of www.forbes.com also arrived.  I will now shut down the computers and go to bed.  CIO

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 12:35 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.  I am about to eat a 19 ounce Stouffer's meat lasagna with grated parmesan and Romano cheese and a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.  CIO

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 12:05 P.M..  I went outside, and I sat out for a while at 8 A.M..  I was able to install Windows 10 Professional X64 on Dell Latitude E6400 laptop, and it is activated based on the previous Windows 7 Professional installation.  However, since I had the local account and password activated, it did not install all of the apps that I have in my library on my Microsoft Account, and there is no way to install them but one at a time.  I might restore the Windows 7 backup, and then install Windows 10 Professional again with the Microsoft Account activated.  However as an upgrade, I do not know if it will install the apps or not.  I hardly use the apps, but they are a major feature of Windows 10.  On the IBM ThinkCentre in front of the mahogany bureau, Windows 10 Professional 32 bit is installed also, but there is the same apps problem with that computer also since I was using the local logon instead of the Microsoft Account logon.  Also product activation says to try later, because it is busy.  There does not seem to be a way to automatically install the apps once configured, although one web page claims it has that feature, but I don't see it on the final release.  I chatted with a friend.  CIO

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 7:00 A.M..  I am installing the 64 bit Windows 10 upgrade on the Windows 7 partition on the Dell Latitude E6400 laptop, and it seems to be going along just fine.  I am also installing the 32 bit Windows 10 upgrade on the Windows 7 partition on the IBM ThinkCentre in front of the mahogany bureau.  It all takes a while.  I chatted with a friend.  It is supposed to go up to 94 degrees Fahrenheit today, so I will probably stay inside by the expensive cool air conditioners.  There is no rush to install the Windows 10 upgrade on all of my Windows 7 and Windows 8 computers, since I have a year to do it for free.  CIO

!!!!!! <888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 5:40 A.M..  Windows 10 upgrade and download  http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 .  I ate one ounce of mixed nuts.  CIO

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 3:45 A.M..  I put away the clean laundry.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 3:00 A.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  Today is the Windows 10 Launch day, but www.microsoft.com plans to release the upgrades to different users over the next month or so, so it might not be available right away.  One can buy the full install from www.newegg.com for about $120 to $200, but that comes out a little bit after today.  CIO

<888> 07/29/15 Wednesday 2:10 A.M..  I chatted with a relative at 3:30 P.M..  I finally woke up at 1:30 A.M..  I put clean linens on the bed.  I started two loads of wash and have five minutes to go on the wash cycles.  I threw out the garbage and the old periodical literature.  I watered the plants.  I picked up the mail.  The free www.forbes.com portfolio bag arrived.  I put it underneath the www.harvard.edu chair.  CIO

<888> 07/28/15 Tuesday 2:45 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.  I will now shut down the primary work computer.  I will eat a blueberry muffin, and then I will go to bed.  CIO

<888> 07/28/15 Tuesday 2:10 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.  I went outside, and I moved my Volvo wagon to its usual place.  I sat outside for a while.  I called up Stamford Volvo service, and they said it would be about 1.5 hours labor or $200 to repair the inside driver's door handle on my 2005 XC 70.  However, first they would have to order the part.  I chatted with their parts department, and they said they would not know until they removed the door panel, and it would only take a day to get the part.  I found this part on the internet which might be it http://www.amazon.com/LatchWell-PRO-4001561-Driver-Interior-Handle/dp/B00C3NGH54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1438106550&sr=8-1&keywords=LatchWell+Pro-4001561 so for a $100 for the part, it would be about a $300 repair.  I will be going back up to Kennebunkport on August 26, 2015 for a few weeks, so I probably will get it done after I return before winter.  I don't drive that much, so there is no rush on it.  Possibly the plastic latch broke from the increased heat in the Volvo wagon sitting out in the sun.  When I just moved it, it was 120 degrees Fahrenheit inside the passenger compartment.  CIO

<888> 07/28/15 Tuesday 12:10 P.M..  I drank a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  CIO 

<888> 07/28/15 Tuesday 11:30 A.M..  I took a fourth of a head of Cello iceberg lettuce, and I ripped it up into small pieces in a large soup bowl with one sliced tomato.  I seasoned it with garlic powder, ground black pepper, Italian spices, celery salt, Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning, a quarter cup of grated parmesan and Romano cheese, 3 ounces of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese cut into 1.5 inch by 3/8th inch by .25 inch pieces and I put Kraft chunky blue cheese dressing and Ken's blue cheese dressing and extra virgin olive oil on it.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.

<888> 07/28/15 Tuesday 10:20 A.M..   I threw out the garbage.  I went downtown, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I stopped by Zen Stationary, and I bought an Ace's High scratch card for a dollar.  It had a $1,000 prize, and the dealer only had a nine, but I only had a high card of 7, so I lost.  I used the bathroom at www.starbucks.com .  I went by www.cvs.com , and I bought two 30 ounce Hellmann's Light mayonnaise for $3 each for $6 total.  While sitting at the top of Greenwich Avenue, I met up with a neighbor.  We walked down Greenwich Avenue, and then I used the bathroom again at www.starbucks.com .  We met up with another local walker, and I drove the two walkers over to a location near Whole Foods, and the other walker departed, and the neighbor did an errand.  I then went by the Stop and Shop with the neighbor.  I got a head of Cello iceberg lettuce for $1.49 and a four pack of tomatoes for $2.49 and .65 can return for $3.33.  I then returned with my neighbor back to our apartment building, and I chatted with other neighbors.  CIO

<888> 07/28/15 Tuesday 5:10 A.M..  I woke up at midnight, and I worked with a computer for an hour.  I ate two scoops of butter pecan ice cream and some mixed nuts.  I went back to bed at 1 A.M., and I woke up at 4 A.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up.  I will then go downtown for an early morning walk.  CIO  

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 10:45 P.M..  I watched "America's Book of Secrets" episode 11.  I will now go back to bed.  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 9:55 P.M..  The Dell Optiplex 760 USFF hard drive caddy was about a quarter of inch too high all around keeping the case cover from closing properly.  Since the hard drive caddy was blue plastic, I used a pliers to break off a quarter inch piece from the top all around, so the case cover now closes properly.  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 8:55 P.M..  I ate a http://scott-mike.com/em.htm  with a glass of cold filtered water and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 8:10 P.M..  I woke up at 7 P.M..  I picked up the mail.  The order with tracking of https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction!input.action?tLabels=9405503699300108724630 on the hard drive caddy for the Dell Optiplex 760 USFF arrived.  I sat outside for a while.  I put the hard drive caddy in the Dell Optiplex 760 usff.   It is a little tight closing the case top, but I think I got it closed.  I also switch the www.dell.com case badge around, so it displays properly in the horizontal position.  I chatted with a relative.  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 11:05 A.M..  I took a fourth of a head of Cello iceberg lettuce, and I ripped it up into small pieces in a large soup bowl with one sliced tomato.  I seasoned it with garlic powder, ground black pepper, Italian spices, celery salt, Montreal Spicy Steak Seasoning, a quarter cup of grated parmesan and Romano cheese, 3 ounces of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese cut into 1.5 inch by 3/8th inch by .25 inch pieces and I put Kraft chunky blue cheese dressing and America's Choice creamy Caesar dressing and extra virgin olive oil on it.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.  I will now take a nap.  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 10:05 A.M..  I emptied the primary paper shredder in the living room, and I put a new plastic bag in it, and I lubricated it.  I threw out the old bag of shredded paper, and then I sat outside for a while.  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 9:25 A.M..  I threw out the garbage.  I sat outside for an extended period of time.  I did some routine internet work.  I ate three ounces of mixed nuts.  I watched "America's Book of Secrets" episode 10.  CIO   

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 5:55 A.M..  I posted some pictures of the Dell Optiplex 760 usff desktop with Windows 10 beta at http://scott-mike.com/comp0715/ .  CIO

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 5:50 A.M..  I ate a bag of microwave popcorn.  I slept some more until 4 A.M., when I woke up.  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up. 

<888> 07/27/15 Monday 1:20 A.M..  I just woke up from another nap.  I have been having more dynamic dreams wearing the nicotine patch.  I was just dreaming I was shopping at a British outlet store at nearby Westchester County airport.  Earlier this afternoon, I was dreaming I was traveling down East Putnam  Avenue when a town fair was going on there in Greenwich, and the whole area was suddenly hit by an electronic impulse disrupting the whole affair.  CIO

<888> 07/26/15 Sunday 10:40 P.M..  I ate a http://scott-mike.com/em.htm  with a glass of cold filtered water.  Well, since the Republican Party is in charge of congress, the Republicans have a long tradition of being frugal and eating eggs and chicken pot pies.  Of course, one could always try to make egg in a basket in a microwave oven.  One would basically toast a piece of toast and put it on a microwave proof plate, and used a water glass to cut a circle out of the toast after one puts spread on it.  Then put an egg in the circle and the piece of round toast cut out over it and microwave it for 40 seconds with a microwave lid on the plate.  I think toast might be cheaper than English muffins.  CIO

<888> 07/26/15 Sunday 10:35 A.M..  At the Greenwich Hospital outpatient visit this past Friday afternoon, I was told I have excellent blood pressure, and it is 115 over 55.  I guess it from walking a lot most of my life.  CIO

<888> 07/26/15 Sunday 10:30 A.M..  I threw out the garbage.  I went downtown.  I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I sat out at various locations.  I bought an Ace's High Scratch card at the Greenwich Cigar store for a dollar, but I lost.  I used the bathroom at www.starbucks.com .  I stopped by www.cvs.com and I bought four 17.5 ounce Gold Emblem Deluxe mixed nuts without peanuts for $7.99 each can less a $5 off $25 CVS internet coupon for $26.96 total.  It was real slow downtown, so I guess everyone is away on summer vacation.  I did see a few visitors on the return.  After my walk, I sat out for a while.  I then returned home.  When I chatted with a friend this morning, I was reminded that I should get the inside driver's side front door latch fixed on the Volvo wagon before this winter, because on a cold winter's days, it might be hard to open the window to get out of the Volvo wagon.  CIO

<888> 07/24/15 Friday 5:50 P.M..  I put the older 320 GB SATA hard drive in the Dell Optiplex 760 computer without the hard drive holder.  I restored the backup of Windows 10 for the Dell Optiplex 740, and it all works just fine.  I have to try to get the administrator password from the vendor.  I have it setup to work off the Netgear Wireless LAN which turns on from the control panel of the Lenovo ThinkCentre to its right side.  CIO

<888> 07/24/15 Friday 1:10 P.M..  I sat outside a while more.  The power supply on the Weather Direct sending unit seems to go on and off, but I am not sure that is the problem.  I ate a blueberry muffin with a glass of cold filtered water.  I will leave about 1:30 P.M. for my 2:15 P.M. appointment.  CIO

<888> 07/24/15 Friday 10:55 A.M..  I threw out the garbage.  I sat outside for a while.  I chatted with a friend.  One of my oldest friends is moving out of the area to points further south, so we will be losing his large network of associates.  CIO

<888> 07/20/15 Monday 9:10 P.M..  I sat outside a while.  It is starting to rain, so maybe it will cool things off a bit.  Since members of the Scott family have been in America for over 400 years, I am obviously not the only member of the Scott family or one of the senior members of the Scott family.  I guess most of them prefer to remain private in their remote hideaways in the hinterlands of America.  Probably the most prosperous ones are land owning farmers whom are more concerned with the farm reports than international politics.  Thus, although I have a minor internet presence, it does not represent the full scope of my family's activities in America.  We obviously are related to a lot of other families out in the wood work too.  CIO

<888> 07/20/15 Monday 1:15 A.M..  I went out, and I went by www.cvs.com at 644 West Putnam Avenue.  I bought four 20 ounce cans of Dinty Moore beef stew for $2.50 each for $10.  I then bought buy one get one free of 10 packs of CVS AA alkaline batteries for $7.99 and .51 tax for $8.50 both.  I then bought another two packs with a $1.50 off coupon from the previous purchase for $6.90 both.  I then went downtown, and I sat for a brief spell.  I then drove down by the waterfront on Steamboat Road, and there was one car down there and two fisherman.  I then returned back home.  I will now eat three scoops of coffee ice cream.  CIO

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 11:25 P.M..  I took a fourth of a head of Cello iceberg lettuce, and I ripped it up into small pieces in a large soup bowl with one sliced tomato.  I seasoned it with garlic powder, ground black pepper, Italian spices, celery salt, Montreal Steak Seasoning, a quarter cup of grated parmesan and Romano cheese, 4 ounces of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese cut into 1.5 inch by 3/8th inch by .25 inch pieces and I put America's Choice creamy Caesar dressing and extra virgin olive oil on it.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.  The last time I think I was in Washington D.C. in February 1990, I stayed at the Dutch Inn in Georgetown which is now the Thomas Jefferson Inn.  One night at 1:30 A.M. in the morning, I went out for a walk towards downtown Washington D.C., and I walked by the www.whitehouse.gov which did not seem to have much going on.  I found a all night bookstore on Pennsylvania Avenue near the www.fbi.gov building, and I chatted with somebody that looked like a www.lfc.edu classmate from Detroit who told me was born in Key West, Florida www.liveduvalstreet.com .  I think it was called the Astria bookstore, and they also had a coffee bar.  It was zero degrees Fahrenheit in Washington D.C., so not many of the locals were out.  Former President H.W. Bush was away in Argentina, and during that same trip I did a tour of the White House with a friend, and it is not really too big of a building.  They were cleaning it, so the east and west rooms were empty.  They had a great big gold with eagle legs Steinway piano in the lobby.  The rooms facing the Washington Monument were furnished, but the furniture looked like it was made for smaller people which big people would not fit into too easily.  They were probably delicate antiques.  We entered through the tourist entrance facing Pennsylvania Avenue, and we left by the front door http://scott-mike.com/mlsdc.jpg and walked out the gate.  It seemed to be a very informal place like walking through a half deserted museum.  I suppose when the President is there, it is busier.  We also toured the U.S. Capitol and one of the legislative chambers which were out of session.  The marble steps in the U.S. Capitol are worn out from too much wear, but I guess they are historical.  We also toured the Victorian type green house near the Capitol and the Washington Monument.  I hurt my feet walking the Mall, since I was wearing a new pair of Clark loafers that I had bought for $20 at the Norwalk Factory store outlet.  CIO

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 9:20 P.M..  I have a nine year old Seagate SATA 320 GB hard drive that I used as the second hard drive in the FIC server for many years that I took out a year ago.  It should work well in the Dell Optiplex 760 with Windows 10 installed.  I can set it up on the second monitor of the FIC server with it sitting underneath the left monitor.  CIO

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 8:20 P.M..   I bought Dell Optiplex 760 USFF Core Duo E8400 3.0 Ghz 4 GB No HDD DVD-RW PC computer http://www.ebay.com/itm/221828833245?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT for $26.99 and $8.95 shipping for $35.94 total.  If I put a spare hard drive in it, it should be a nice fast little computer.  CIO

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 7:30 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.  CIO 

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 6:40 P.M..  I threw out the garbage.  I chatted with a neighbor.  I sat outside in the 91 degree Fahrenheit weather for a while.  It is too hot to go downtown and people watch the hoards of people trying to cool off at www.starbucks.com .  I suppose a lot of the local folk still left in this area are at the many private clubs and down at our many waterfront locations.  Alas bench sitters and walkers from Greenwich Avenue do not get too much attention in this neck of the woods.  Since I am paying for the two air conditioners, I might as well stay home and enjoy my creature comforts.  Alas there are no bargains bottom fishing on the internet at http://scott-mike.com/bf.htm .  I suppose with the extra money that people bring while on vacation in this area, the internet merchants keep the prices high.  If one were visiting in this area, one could always look at the deluxe automobiles for sale on West Putnam Avenue to get a perspective of what the big buck people do with their extra money in this area.  http://www.kennebunkportbeachwebcam.com/ is 20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than here.  It is only a six hour drive further north to http://scott-mike.com/137.htm .  I might be going back up there again in late August depending on other family member's plans.  I think I first visited Kennebunkport in the summer of 1969 with three Taft School classmates on a weekend, when we drank a bit of beer.  In 1979, a relative married into an established family up there.  I later learned that my Grandma Scott's maternal British family with the Gard family name were founders of York, Maine; so I might have some distant relatives up there that the Scott family forgot about when we toiled in the corn belt in the Midwest.  I suppose the days, when I drank a bit of beer still haunt me.  Still it is a custom of people with my ancestry.  When I worked on the Polaroid film factory on I-128 in Waltham in the summer of 1970 doing construction, some of the same steam fitters and welders were also building a Budweiser brewery in Manchester, New Hampshire.  Nearby in Framingham, Massachusetts there was a Carling beer brewery that produced Carling Red Cap beer.  Thus in the old days in the Boston area, we were known for having a beer or two.  Out in www.nantucket.net in the summer of 1976 after the Tall Ships in New York Harbor, they had a pub on the waterfront called the "Sail Loft" that had about every beer produced in the world or at least 150 different types.  It was very popular with the visiting sailors.  Alas I don't know how to sail, but I have a lot of wharf rat experience.  I have a few old bottles of warm British beer in the apartment and a few very old bottles of cold German beer in the apartment.  However, I no longer drink alcohol, I just keep it around for any guests or family members that might stop by.  I am not sure what the shelf life of beer is.  I suppose the new breed of wharf rats are more high tech, but it does not hurt to chat with some of the locals to get their perspective.  Since everyone I see recently down around Steamboat Road seems to be Latino and does not speak English, I no longer go down there, but about once a month.  The Island Beach ferry boat is an adventure, but the last time I ventured on it many years ago, they did not have a head to go to the bathroom.  With the cheaper prices of gasoline, it is probably about $7 in gasoline for me to drive out to Tod's Point in Old Greenwich and back.  The Greenwich weather station is out there by the care takers house.  Still, I have my home office to keep me busy on the hot days of summer.  It is supposed to be a slow hurricane season, but one should look at http://scott-mike.com/weather.htm just to make sure.  I chatted with someone from Sea Island, Georgia this week who talked a lot about Palm Beach.  Apparently the old beach club where Winston Churchill used to visit has been modernized with new facilities.  CIO

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 4:40 P.M..  I woke up at 4:40 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.   I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO

<888> 07/19/15 Sunday 12:40 A.M..  I took a fourth of a head of Cello iceberg lettuce, and I ripped it up into small pieces in a large soup bowl with one sliced tomato.  I seasoned it with garlic powder, ground black pepper, Italian spices, celery salt, Montreal Steak Seasoning, a quarter cup of grated parmesan and Romano cheese, 3 ounces of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese cut into 1.5 inch by 3/8th inch by .25 inch pieces and I put America's Choice creamy Caesar dressing and extra virgin olive oil on it.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale.  I woke up this morning, and I ate three ounces of mixed nuts.  I also ate three ounces of mixed nuts before making cigarettes.  I guess if one were a foot loose student traveler in Europe, one could buy a U-Rail pass and travel back and fourth from southern Europe to Northern Scandinavia.  I am not sure if the modern U-Rail passes go to Eastern Europe or not.  Back in the winter of 1972, one could not use a U-Rail pass in England or Scotland.  Of course, they might steal you www.apple.com device at a Youth Hostile which are the cheapest places for young people to stay.  I think they have a United States version of the U-Rail pass, but I am not sure if it is available on buses or trains.  Of course, one now needs travel documents to visit Canada, when in the old days, it was only a day's journey away.  CIO

<888> 07/18/15 Saturday 11:50 P.M..  I made 203 Zen Filter Lights 100s Peter Stokkebye Turkish pipe tobacco cigarettes while watching the first part of "The Double" that I had seen before and the first episode of "America's Book of Secrets".  CIO

<888> 07/18/15 Saturday 9:05 P.M..  I am planning to start using the nicotine patches to quit smoking cigarettes in a couple of days.  However for now to have some spare smokes in reserve in case the nicotine patches don't work, I will now make cigarettes.  Frequently, when I try to quit smoking cigarettes, I end up in stressful situations, since I am basically a very private individual, and when I quit smoking cigarettes, I end up dealing with people, I normally do not deal with.  CIO 

<888> 07/18/15 Saturday 8:00 P.M..  I threw out the garbage.  I moved the Volvo wagon to its usual place.  I sat outside for a while.  I picked up the mail.  Well not much happens in Greenwich, Connecticut; since half the population is under 16 years old probably watching cartoons off cable television, while the other half do whatever they know how to do.  We get a lot of visitors here for what we have to offer on Greenwich Avenue which is women's shopping and two coffee shops and quite a few restaurants.  Alas we are not a major metropolitan area like nearby Manhattan which always seems to have something going on.  For excitement, I used to like driving up to New Canaan, Connecticut and walking around downtown near God's Little Acre and looking for bargains at the New Canaan Visiting Nurse Thrift Shop next to the fire house.  One of the original www.apple.com in this area was in New Canaan, so maybe somebody in New Canaan made money off the Apple Computer fad for whatever it is worth.  Since I have lived in New Canaan a couple of times, I know they read a lot of books, since it is an hour and half commute from New York City.  In the winter it is quite bleak up there.  In the summer, since it is way from Long Island Sound, it is a lot hotter up there.  Still it is fun to visit, since one sees more Connecticut people as opposed to visitors from New York City.  Alas they still want wampum up there, if one needs to make any expenses.  New York City people are good at walking around trying to look affluent, but alas to travel in Connecticut, it usually take an automobile which can be more expensive.  CIO

<888> 07/18/15 Saturday 6:05 P.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  I made my bed.  I will make up a batch of punch.  I will now shower and clean up.  I think the problem with the FIC server with the older Mad Dog video card and Windows XP was that I had reset the bios, and I had the memory set to "auto" instead of "SPD 133".  Thus it would have worked, but I prefer the Vista setup which is useful also.  I shut it down in Sleep Mode, so it starts up faster.  CIO

<888> 07/18/15 Saturday 5:00 P.M..  I chatted with a relative at 10 A.M. and a friend at 11 A.M..  I finally woke up at 4:30 P.M..  CIO

<888> 07/18/15 Saturday 2:50 A.M..  On the FIC computer, I tried the ATI Radeon 9600 video card from the Epox computer, but it too was still buggy.  I put all three video cards back in their original computers as they were three days ago.  I am now restoring the Vista Ultimate backup to the FIC server, which although it is slow starting, it is quite stable.  The Microsoft wireless 6000 mouse is not working on the FIC server, so I put a generic USB mouse on it.  Once I finish restoring the Vista backup, if it still does not work, I might remove it.  However, its receiver also works with the Microsoft 6000 wireless keyboard, so I might not be able to remove it.  CIO

<888> 07/17/15 Friday 10:00 P.M..   I ate the other half of http://scott-mike.com/mlsrice.htm that I added a little bit of Frank's hot sauce and Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce to the recipe, and I ate two reheated Perdue 3 ounce chicken cutlets and steamed baby carrots with Smart Balance Spread and extra virgin olive oil and a 12 ounce glass of Schweppes Ginger Ale and a cup of Twinings green tea with Splenda sweetener and America's Choice lemon juice.  CIO 

<888> 07/17/15 Friday 8:45 P.M..  I threw out the garbage.  I went by the A&P Fresh.  I bought a four pack of blueberry muffins for $3.79 and 65 cent can return for $3.14 total.  They have a large display of full bloom orchids at the inside store entrance.  I chatted with a relative on my wireless telephone.  I then went by www.cvs.com on Greenwich Avenue.  I picked up a prescription.  I then went further downtown.  I chatted with two local walkers twice.  I went by Zen Stationary, and I bought an Ace's High scratch card for a dollar, but I lost.  I then went by the Greenwich Library which was closed, and I chatted with two locals.  I then went by the Stop and Shop.  I bought four 19 ounce Stouffer's meat lasagnas for $3 each, a 8 ounce Stop and Shop grated parmesan and Romano cheese for $2.99, a 15 ounce extra virgin olive oil lite Smart Balance spread for $3.99, a 64 ounce Ocean Spray cranraspberry juice for $2.99, a 64 ounce Ocean Spray crangrape juice for $2.99, and bananas for .49 a pound for .51 for $25.47 total.  I then returned home, and I put away my purchases.  CIO

<888> 07/17/15 Friday 4:40 P.M.  I woke up at 3 P.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and sliced banana, a 12 ounce glass of punch and cold filtered water, a toasted English muffin with extra virgin olive oil, and a cup of coffee with Splenda sweetener and milk.  I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up.  I will then go downtown.  CIO

I was not able to do an Aomei backup of the FIC server.  For some reason, when doing the backup it crashes.  I can go without it, since I still have the other backup.  I will now shut down the primary work computer.  I will eat a blueberry muffin, and then I will go to bed.  CIO

<888> 07/17/15 Friday 3:25 A.M.  On the FIC server, I removed the EGVA video card, and I put in the older Mad Dog Nvidia GEForce 4 MX 440 SE AGP video card.  It only supports one monitor and not two.  I was able to get it working by changing some video bios settings and installing its drivers.  Thus I have the FIC all working with Windows XP Professional.  It all seems to be running just fine.  One it get the lid back on it, and check it out a bit, I will do an Aomei backup of it to the second hard drive.  This reminds me of the Old Days of tinkering with computers.  CIO

<888> 07/17/15 Friday 1:20 A.M.  I threw out the garbage.  I sat outside for a while.  I picked up the mail.  I shut down the FIC server for now.  All, I can think of is trying the Epox computer ATI video card, when I have time.  CIO

<888> 07/16/15 Thursday 10:55 P.M.  I chatted with a friend twice.  I ate a 19 ounce Stouffer's meat lasagna with grated parmesan and Romano cheese with a 12 ounce glass of 50% Schweppes Ginger Ale and 50% punch.  On the FIC server with Windows XP Professional, I could not get the ATI video card rive to work, so I put the ATI video card in the Abit computer and I took the EGVA Nvidia card from the Abit computer, and put it in the FIC server.  However, I can not get the Nvidia drive to work either.  That was always the problems with Windows XP trying to get different parts to work.  When I have time, I could try the ATI video card from the Epox computer.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO 

<888> 07/16/15 Thursday 4:50 P.M.  I finally woke up at 3 P.M..  I had a call earlier from the Greenwich Hospital Emergency Room to check up on me.  I woke up a few times earlier.  I was able to restore the Aomei XP backup to the FIC server, but first I had to have the Vista partition installed for the restore to work.  It would not install and work from a blank hard drive drive.  Thus I have XP Professional installed on the FIC server which should be faster than Vista.  I chatted with a relative.  CIO

<888> 07/16/15 Thursday 3:25 A.M.  I can not get the FIC server to boot the restored XP backup.  The reason is probably because it is dual boot with the Vista Server also on it.  I have an earlier backup without the Vista Server that I will restore at a future date.  I will now shut down the primary work computer and eat a blueberry muffin and go to bed.  CIO

<888> 07/16/15 Thursday 12:45 A.M.  Tracking is https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction?qtc_tLabels1=9400109699938618007425 on the order for two http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nicoderm-CQ-Step-1-14-Clear-patches-NEW-Stock-/201377294656?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2ee305a940 for $28.75 each with free shipping for $57.50 total.

On the FIC server, the January 2008 Windows XP Professional backup seems to be restoring without any problems.  I will probably have to install Windows XP SP3 and other updates and hardware changes, once I reboot.  One I have it all configured, I will have to do an Aomei backup to the second internal hard drive and as external hard drive.  CIO  

<888> 07/15/15 Wednesday 11:15 P.M.  I put away the clean laundry.  The missing sock bandit struck again.  Maybe the missing sock is folded up in the dry laundry and will appear later.  On the FIC server, I am restoring the Aomei backup of Windows XP Professional from the Epox computer.  If the FIC server starts up, I have the original Windows XP Professional backup for the FIC server for its original configuration on the second hard drive which if and when restored would be faster than Windows Vista.  CIO

<888> 07/15/15 Wednesday 9:55 P.M.  I started one large dry cycle, and I have 55 minutes to go.  I sat outside briefly.  CIO

<888> 07/14/15 Tuesday 11:25 P.M.  I went to the Greenwich Hospital Emergency room.  I watched the evening news for an hour while waiting in the waiting room.  I then spent two hours in one of the patient care rooms in the emergency room.  I chatted with the doctor and other health care workers.  They did a chest x-ray of me.  The chest x-ray did not show any problems.  The doctor prescribed me a week's worth of antibiotics, one of which I took at the emergency room.  I was also told to keep taking the MucinexDM  twice a day.  The doctor told me it can take up to 18 days to get rid of a cough.  I left the Greenwich Hospital about 9 P.M.. I went by CVS on Greenwich Avenue, but they did not have any MucinexDM.  I then went by CVS at 644 West Putnam Avenue.  I got the antibiotic prescription filled there.  I bought another package of MucinexDM for $17.49 and a CVS mouth thermometer for $11.49 and .73 tax for $29.71.  I just now returned home.  I did not get any mail today.  CIO

End of Scott's Notes week of 07/12/15

<888> 07/11/15 Saturday 9:55 P.M.  For the regular readers of my "Scott's Notes", I have had to quit adding links to my notes, since my primary work computer for the last two months has continually been getting hacked if I leave it online too long.  Before visiting Kennebunkport, Maine in mid June, I installed a "Kill Switch" on the primary work computer dedicated net switch by connecting its power to a switched power strip which can be turned on and off very quickly to put it online and offline.  Thus I go online for a few seconds to post my notes without web browsing for interesting links.  I still used the Windows 10 beta machine for web browsing, and it does not seem to get hacked easily like the primary work computer Windows 7 machine with Norton Internet Security.  Whether the hackers are an individual or some rogue computer seeking out vulnerable computers, I do not know.  That was my only simple solution.  Since my notes do not get a lot of traffic, I can not figure out why anyone would waste their time hacking me.  Even after restoring a good new configuration backup, the primary work computer would get hacked in less than an hour.  CIO
