Re: Windows update 1803 problems

Good luck with the testing Gerd. :fingerscrossed:
It does seem like you have a losing battle trying to get Line6 behaving.

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

Oh No, that is awful news Rusty. I'm so sorry to hear it. You were with him at the end and that's where we need to be for our friend. May he rest in peace. With a really bad prognosis it's very often not fair on the dog to put them through all the surgery and pain, often with no happy ending too. My...

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

I'm so sorry for your loss, though I'm glad that you still have a small companion. We lost two dogs in 2015 (one to poison, one to old age) and held off on getting another until this spring, when we got a dog from a rescue shelter in Santa Fe. He, of course, took a period of adjustment, but has now...

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

Thanks for your kind thoughts HBL. :thumbsup: I can well understand your still getting sad thoughts about Bengel. A dog becomes such a close emotional companion. I still get those sad thoughts kicking in sometimes for Honey (dog) and Sooty (cat) who passed away around 10 years ago. Usually happens i...

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

Now - that is serious stuff. Very glad it worked out well, and I hope your daughter recovers quickly. :fingerscrossed: Nearly a year ago and shortly after we nearly lost Theo when his heart condition flared up, we brought another dog into the fold to share our lives. A Cocker Spaniel (working Cocker...

Re: The Life Timer Emptied

Thank you Gerd. :D It's always a painful process - we've been through it with a cat and a dog before ... but it doesn't get any easier. I have every sympathy for you with your pain of going through it too with your cat. We thought we'd lost him last year, but emergency treatment let him recover and ...

The Life Timer Emptied

My wonderful friend shown in my avatar is no longer with us on this plane of existence. It was kind and merciful to release him before his heart condition became too painful for him and he went peacefully, but it's so bloody sad and heartbreaking. So many things today remind us of him - like his mud...

Re: Windows update 1803 problems

Good news for you! :banana:
Hope you had a good holiday.

I remember when Vista did an update and all my homeplugs that I use for a network stopped working.
A bit of an expensive free update was that!

Happy recording. :thumbsup:

Re: De Faoite Guitars - Terz Parlour

I'm so glad your dog is OK. A good friend of mine lost her dog to a rattlesnake bite last year. It happened right behind her house. That is a lovely little guitar. I like parlour guitars a lot... In fact, the only flattop guitar I own is an old Regal parlour guitar. Good luck with your house. I'm (...

Something has gone wrong with the attachment as far as my computer is concerned.

It shows as an attachment in the main body of the post, but nothing happens when the play button is clicked? :icon_whoknows:

De Faoite Guitars - Terz Parlour

Trying to sell the house with all the work that entails (and so far getting nowhere), plus an incident where our youngest dog getting bitten by an adder, with the resulting treatment, convalescence and worry, has not meant much time to spend on forums this last few weeks. :thumbsdown: On the plus si...

Re: Eric Clapton 2018 Cologne concert review

A bit of a mixed bag. A tricky thing for a set of musicians is the task of finding the groove and getting the music to take off. It must be even more difficult when you haven't played live much recently, and it must also be difficult when you've played the song so many times over the years. Good to ...

Wow - with that sort of raging GAS it's just as well no one lit a match nearby! :yikes: Your enthusiasm comes across loud and clear and from what you say about how at one you feel with the guitars it is easy to understand that passion.

Re: Windows update 1803 problems

Sorry to hear that Gerd, and I'm afraid I can't help. :sad:

I'm using Windows 7 .... and a copy with auto updates switched off too.

Hopefully someone with the same problem will come up with a workaround and publicise it so it shows up on Google.

Good luck!

Re: A Trio of Varied Genre

That's an approach to classical music you use that I like. Bringing some of the nature of blues to the genre. :thumbsup: :cool:
There's too much rules and regulations and having to play everything exactly as it is written - takes the soul out of it for me.

Re: Chicago and the Blues Brothers

Very professionally put together film - a visit to savour and that film will be a nice piece of memorabilia to keep for future reference. :clap:

Looks like a city full of character. A real mixture.

The sounds you now have on the film work very well. :thumbsup:
