Saturday in the Park

Me and Z

Saturday morning: track down and fix annoying and unacceptable whining sound coming from computer audio. Source turned out to be the onboard Ethernet, somehow, so went to the computer parts storage area, retrieved and installed gigabit card, disabled onboard Ethernet, no more whining. Installed new 1TB Caviar Black hard drive, cloned old drive, ran Windows Experience refresh, new disk transfer rating: 5.9. As it should be. Daughter suggested we go to park, read, play, and ride around. Agreed. We went to the park, rode around, played, and read. Returned home, posted to blog about how great Saturday has been so far, refilled water bottle, got single speed bike out, go hit the canal for a 30 mile ride. That and a good luck kiss from my love as I go out the door is all that I require from a Satuday. Get up. Go ride.

  1. "...went to the computer parts storage area, retrieved and installed gigabit card, disabled onboard Ethernet, no more whining." I wonder if that will work on the medium Little Jogger...

  2. All whine suppression is but a temporary holding action against the greater forces of noise. Noise always wins in the end. You can't fight thermodynamics. Although it may be possible with a really good ground to make it someone else's problem down the line. I hope that helps.
