Autumn Closed In On Homer And We’re Live Blogging A Whole New Start

Saturday didn't happen.  Clubber Lang was fiction.  That Blues rookie was nothing but a nightmare, but holy hell that kid is good.  Enough about that. Didn't happen. 

You know what did happen for real and no BS? 

"Nine Tonight" was recorded in 1980 and it's unreal.  Know the best part? I know you do so don't sit there like Potsie Frigging Weber trying to pretend you're oblivious when we all know you've been paying attention all these years.

"Just like southern Michigan summer time."  That line is just so Seger.  And Seger is so Michigan because he's never forgotten his roots.  He belts that line out and the Cobo crowd goes nuts. 

But wait...here's the best part.  It wasn't Cobo...it was Boston.  He changed that line and tailored it to us...in Boston.  He didn't go all Dave Matthews on us and say it was just like "eastern Nantucket summer time" to please those Northeastern yuppie tools. No. He brought Michigan to them.

It's why I can't get away from Seger.  The ultimate transplant who can't leave MI behind, like more than a few of us.

I have nothing to say about the Wings that I haven't already said today.  Husk and Gus in.  Fredo and William Tell out.  Quite The ClusterFuch is in, of course.

It's a Live Blog, bitches.  As it should be.

Hey Cal. Opening night was the better half’s birthday, so guess what took priority?

I was around muckraking a bit during the lockout. Did some lobbying against CI and GCL to keep some $$ out of lil gary’s pants. Judging from the lack of feeds posted, nobody heeded my recommendation.

I fixed me some dinner, and noticed the cheese powder in the Kraft Mac and Cheese packet is no longer neon orange.
What’s up with that?

It’s made in China now. They add melamine to it over there and it tones down the color.

Any computer geeks out there know a cure for a three year old laptop that runs too hot? I’m thinking of taking it apart, blowing the dust out, replacing the thermal paste and hoping for the best.

You’re on the right track; fans/heatsinks first, for sure,  though I’d probably avoid replacing the thermal paste unless you’re really sure that could be an issue. 3 years is generally not long enough for that stuff to deteriorate, unless it was done poorly at the factory (which is always possible).

What make/model is it? Some just run hot, especially if you push them hard consistently.

Captain, break down and order a New Laptop!  Everyone I know that has a Mac swears (good) by it!
Laptops are made not to last very long, especially with repeated use. smile

So, tonight’s first period looked like a hybrid of The Night That Shall Not Be Spoken Of (Sat, Jan 19,2013) and last night.

Is this the team we got?

The PP is horrendous.

HP 13” centrino 8gb ram with an nVidia card. The problem started about a month ago and is getting more frequent. I’m self employed and while I have my data backed up, I’ve never had backup equipment. I ordered a refurb lenovo to replace the HP. Once it arrives I’ll tear into the HP and hopefully make it stable again and keep it as a back up. “My computer broke” doesn’t really fly as an excuse with Courts or opposing counsel.

I read on tom’s hardware that thermal paste can go bad in 2-3 years.

You say “nVidia card,” but is it a discreet card or a chipset-based, shared memory type deal?

If you’ve never cleaned it out, I’d bet there’s a decent amount of dust, pubic hair, or other unmentionable substances making life hard for the fan(s)/heatsink(s).

I’ll also go for the heatsync clean out, avoid the thermal paste until you have tried everything else.  My old laptop used to need cleaning out every few months.  Also, make sure the fan is moving air good.

Yes, next to the gizwheel on many models.
