I’m not sure when it happened, but it looks like someone finally started listening to me. I’m a little biased, but I’d say it’s about time! I’m kind of a genius. I’m really really smart and I know how things should be done. I’m not opposed to telling you that I really ought to be in charge of pretty much everything. Sometimes, you’ll find that there are those that think they know what to do, and every once in awhile they’ll get lucky, but really, they are kidding themselves. I am perfect. I wouldn’t get it wrong because I honestly don’t think I’m capable.
No wait, I take that all back. I now have to listen to Marv Albert call the Lakers game. Looks like I was wrong, no one is listening to me at all. I don’t recall asking for him to broadcast any of the Laker games this year. Nor do I recall demanding that they be shown on TNT, home of the worst camera angles in the world. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I wonder what it would be like to watch the game if my seats were located under the floorboards, or if I were spinning around uncontrollably and hanging upside down from the rafters in the far northwest corner, but I’m just not sure if the ball-cam is right for any audience.
I suppose I could just turn down the volume, but honestly, what would this post be about then? How I turned down the volume on the television? I’m not entirely sure that is a marketable post. As you are all well aware, my marketing strategies are second to none. I pride myself on providing the right kind of content to bring in the proper audience for my investors. We here at the Shuck N Jive have a reputation for delivering the goods. I’m not about to tarnish that sterling reputation with some post about how I turned down the volume on the television!
Frankly, I’m a little surprised you would even suggest I’m capable of that kind of foolishness. I’m almost offended.
Just for that, I’m going to subject you to more of my computer nonsense. I’ve done a pretty poor job of documenting the whole process, but I’m sure some of the more vigilant readers are aware of my little cloning project. A few words of advise for those that are thinking about doing the same thing. Don’t. Ok, that was only one word, but it was a contraction, so I suppose one could put forth a pretty low level, unrehearsed, awkward argument that it was two words, but by the time you finish with it, your audience will be bored and no one will really care anymore.If you’re running windows, and you have a legit copy of the the OS installation disk, I suggest you update the heck out of your current computer, install the OS again on the new hard drive and update the heck out of it. Go back to the old drive, do the files transfer wizard, follow the instructions. Burn that file it creates to a DVD, switch back to the new drive, run the wizard again and put in the DVD. You’ll have to move that file from the DVD to the new hard drive, but that’s about the best way to get it all taken care of. I could have done that in the span of one day. Instead, convinced by what I read online, I tried (painfully and unsuccessfully) to clone the hard drive. I’m sure in some far off land where people have “ideal circumstances,” cloning works. But I’ve found it to be just a frustrating experience that I’d rather not repeat. I spent many hours on it, and it didn’t work. I’m now posting from the new computer; I have all my programs and settings (and most importantly, my passwords for online activities) all loaded up and ready to work for me. If you want to upgrade, be prepared for a fairly large hassle. I wish you the best of luck… unless of course you are upgrading so that you have better equipment to hack into my system and steal from me. For those of you out there with such ambitions, I do not wish you luck. I wish you the opposite of luck, whatever that is… it’s probably called bad luck, but I’m neither disciplined enough to go back and retype those last couple of sentences nor am I quick enough to think about what I’m typing anyway.
