CW2 (Join to see) - 'Damned Operating System' and 'Win? Dose'? ;-)
Diid you ever have to restore a dedicated system to Wm 2.0, after IT wiped it without making a backup, and installing Win 95? I got a direct order from the division's VP that IT could not touch any non networked computer, since so many were used to run test fixtures on the production floor. They didn't make me want to drink. I wanted to walk into IT's office with an aluminum baseball bat, ant wear it out on their hick skulls. Their first day, one of them was looking at our machines, and he complained, "I can't get into the BIOS!" I sighed. "XTs don't have a real time clock, and no BIOS." He laughed, "It'll be in the dumpster next week, when you get a new computer. I shook my head and told him, It is used to program obsolete ICs that the newer programmers can't do. The interface will only work with an PC or XT. That's why the Prime Minicomputer operator has several stashed away, for spares.

Understand that no one is paying attention to those things you are stressing about because they are all mostly concerned with themselves. Your little mistakes will be forgotten in minutes by everyone else.

SPC Michael Terrell - No helicopters where I was. And I'm pretty sure they didn't put chains on the jets.......

Sgt Robert Hellyer - Maybe at the end of WW II? The radios and RADAR used small chains to link the panel shaft to the actual tuner. The first RADAR system that I got my hands on was from that era, along with one of the ARN-6/R101 direction finding receiver that I converted to solid state. It was terrific for long distance AM radio reception on the Broadcast band.
Whatever, May you have a Blessed day. :)

Sgt Robert Hellyer - Spoilsports! I'll bet they wouldn't let you stand inside a TV transmitter while it was powered, like I did? Of course, I didn't let them find out what I did. I had to make an adjustment that was normally only done at the factory, before it was fuly assembled. I could either make it, fire it up, guess which way to move it, and power itt up again. Or I could stand on the high voltage transformer with a nylon rod and have one of the operators tell me when it was right. That only took five minutes, so we were on the air, right on time. The video was muddy, because of improper coupling between two amplifiers. It looked great, after realignment. :)
