I was trying to scan some photos when I got an unpleasant surprise. My scanner wasn’t working! That got me thinking… My printer and scanner are both connected to my USB Hub. Then I remembered that I had installed Xilinx ISE and ModelSim. Software that I needed for my CSE 422 class. I remembered that they installed some USB drivers. I uninstalled the software but that didn’t do anything. Searching for drivers on the internet didn’t help either. I was pissed. I hate Xilix now. Their piece of crap software screws up USB ports. Screw the class, I’m not installing that crap on my system. I figured my only other alternative (though extreme, but that’s my style) is to reformat my system. But then I remembered that XP has something called System Restore. I used it to restore my system to the point in time before I installed Xilix ISE and ModelSim. It worked beautifully… Woohoo!
I am the proud owner of a new Canon LiDE scanner. I finally have a working scanner. The replacement that HP sent me never worked, and I assumed it was their piece of crap computer that failed to recognize the scanner. It seems to not be the case. I hooked it upto my Alienware machine and it still didn’t work. I hate HP. I have had the worst experience with them. They suck. Well, anyway, it’s good to have a working scanner finally.
I went to my Physics 361 recitation today for the first time. I got all my homeworks and quizzes that I never picked up. I am doing much better than I expected. Which is ironic, since I put the least effort into this class. I’m not doing all that great in 421. Missing those first two weeks really hurt me. It looks like it still is hurting me… and I’m putting the most effort into this class.
Can’t life get any better?
Lessee… Things are not really going my way… I got a new scanner… but the damn thing still doesn’t work… it’s not smoking or anything, but when I scan, all I get is a black image… pretty wierd huh? I think I have a problem with my cable… other than that I have no idea why it’s happening… But anyways, I think I’ll be getting some time to do some work… first thing, I’m going to set up a new control panel… then I might do something on the links page. Pictures… I’m getting some stuff developed and so I’ll use the scanners at school to get pictures. Anyways, I gotta go now and work on some Prolog – FUN! Cya’ll later!
I apologize for doing absolutely NOTHING on this page… two things… I was busy… busier than expected and so I had absolutely no time… I might have done something had I got my scanner, but HP has been messing things up… man those idiots are really incompetent… well anyways, hopefully I should have my scanner by next week or something. I can’t say anything about updates… but if I get my scanner, I’ll see to it that I get some pictures up here… that’s all! Adios and take care…
Ahhh. Finally! Ummm… Sorry! This is not about an update! It’s just to let you know that I’m still alive and that I haven’t been kidnapped by aliens and taken to another planet! Well, depending on how much time I have, I will be able to start work on the webpage as I’ll be getting DSL by the 10th of next month (hopefully). Sorry about no pics… My scanner is not working… it uhhh… started smoking the last time I tried to use it… no kidding!! So I’ll have to wait until I get it fixed by HP. Until then… I guess all we can do is way! Peace Y’all!
