trs 80 model II - looking for a good tech site (oh and my wife just had a baby last week)
- I have been kind of out of the loop for the past week to anyone who had
tried to reach me....
Late last night I discovered my previously working model II has lost its
ability to boot up. Does anyone on this list have a favorite site for
tech FAQ's, etc. that they find useful? Some of the old sites seem to
no longer be available. Specifically my system powers up but no longer
completes the boot cycle, does not attempt to read a disk or display
anything to the screen. I have just started working on this system and
will send an update if I get one. I know the typical stuff to try, and
will do so asap. I had let this system lie dormant for 3-4 years, it
worked back then, but I had not re-tested it since. It's really
important to keep your old hardware fresh by running each system for a
few hours each year. I had not gotten to this one for too long.
Thanks to all who have asked me about my new son born on this past Weds
- Joseph Victor Degnan - 8 lbs....he and my wife Kelcey are doing fine.
I am blessed to have large family and many friends to share this happy
- This is the dumbest argument EVER.
Fairline: Herb takes history seriously. That's good. It doesn't mean the man lacks a funny bone.
Herb: Not everyone takes history quite AS seriously as you or I. That's good, too.

> So, I think the only loose thread, is why you were surprised when someof your remarks were taken more seriously than you expected. I presume
you will be less surprised about that in the future.
I'm not sure that I am willing to have to put *WARNING JOKE* or *
TONGUE IN CHEEK* as it seems would be required for you. A "LOL"
denotes a joke. And of course, one can always ask for clarification
if one isn't sure since written communications are not always as clear as the spoken word. Should I counter with a similarly demanding "I
presume you will be less likely to miss the meaning of a LOL or smiley in the future."? That reads like a declaration. Is there really
anything wrong with maybe being a little less uptight and a little
more civil perhaps? I really hope you ponder that for a moment.
This list, does it only want hardcore super serious guys? Thats not very inviting to guys less so I think anyway.
> One comment. I don't think much of using smiley's on statements, soone can later say "I was only kidding".
So a smiley or LOL is never sincere? Its only always meant to have a excuse later on that something was not meant seriously? If I read you correctly thats a pretty negative view and one you should not take on my usage of it.
Anyway I'll shut my mouth on this subject otherwise for the moment, just food for thought in return.
