They raised the price of my favorite aftershave. Now I gotta pay $1.25. Shoot!

The handyman did not end up coming over, I had to phone him too

He said he had another job way down south that he got stuck at so couldn't come...also, he didn't have my number on him to phone me and let me know...not impressed!

He is going to come on Monday now, lets see if he does...if he doesn't, he has lost a job!

I dont put up with people like this!

There is a fix. I can edit my registry to disable this new one, so it reverts to the old one. Grrrr. I hate editing the registry. It makes me nervous.

BTW, other computers can see this one.
Oops, it wasn't the fault of Windog, this time.

It was Kaspersky, my anti-virus, etc. software. I forgot to check its firewall. We have a firewall on the network server, so I forget about firewalls.

So, after a few settings changes in Kaspersky, I can see the other computers.

Glad you found your problem.

The printer at work up and died. I checked everything that I knew to check and e-mailed our procurer of computer things. The next day a tech came and and found the problem. Then Friday the tech came back with a box and performed maintenance on the printer...he complimented us on taking such good care of the printer, we had just worn it out. He replaced rollers and the fuser.

He siad it was my rundown of what was happening and having examples of the damage it was causing (before it went all 4 paws up) that led to him diagnosing the problem. Most diagnostics he runs take him from an hour to two hours...he found ours in 10 minutes.

The procurer thanked me for saving him $1400 on a new printer. I told him I would give him the bill for new shoes for having to run back and forth for print jobs, I wouldn't charge him a diagnostic fee.

When you take a vehicle to the shop do you tell the mechanic about the buzzing noise that starts up when you first drive away, increasing in pitch until it gets so high you can't here it after you hit 25MPH? Or the rattle and vibrating noise that comes from under the rear of the car near the passenger side? I do...

I just try to be observant...hate looking silly...as it was I still didn't really know how a Laserjet worked, so I didn't know to look for a fuser. Otherwise I could have just told our computer guy what we needed to fix it. I have fixed other things at work that has saved the company money...

Yup, even thought there is still some tweaking to be done. I feel like such a dodo for not thinking Kaspersky's firewall.
