We are supposed to be back up to the upper 40s tomorrow and near 60 Sunday with rain.  All this frozen tundra will be gone.  I can take a couple of days of snow and staying home, but then I start getting cabin fever.  Although I don't plan on getting out on the roads today, which are totally iced now with no snow to pack on it, I cleared off both vehicles and the sidewalks so that we could get out if we needed to.

This is how my luck goes:  I have a friend who has one of those expensive CD cleaners, so I decided to give it a try and had him do 10 CDs that I didn't care much about. They came out great and played perfect. So I decided to give him 10 more to do, this time more expensive and rare CDs that were in pretty rough shape... this time 3 of them ended up damaged. They look like new now, but won't play without massive skipping... he went too far with the cleaning. So I won't be doing that anymore. Interestingly, 2 of the CDs that didn't fair well were self produced off-label albums - perhaps they use cheaper discs that aren't as thick?

No idea on the disc cleaning. I always just do it myself with a micro fiber towel. Seems to do the trick. I don't trust any machine where you insert a CD unless it's a CD player.

I have one somewhere that you have to hand crank to clean the CD and fix scratches with.  It does the trick.  I have had a couple of used CDs that I bought where some tracks wouldn't play at all, spin it through the cleaner, and the disc would then play.

Luckily I got replacements of the CDs he messed up. I feel bad having to tell him, but I think it's for the best that I let him know his machine eats too many layers

The bad news: my PC cannot be upgraded to Windows 11--compatibility issues.  The good news: Microsoft should be supporting the software until at least October 14, 2025.  This means a PC replacement will loom at that point.  Man, technology upgrades so quickly.  My PC is only six years old.  :O

Mine isn't either. I couldn't tell you how old my desktop is.  It keeps doing what I need it to do, though, so I haven't replaced it.

A) Getting them to talk to one another even with the proper driver.  I did finally figure this out.

B) Figuring out how to edit tracks and save them so you can use the edited piece on the recorder without having to use the computer if you want to record more parts.

C). Figuring out EQing, adding effects, etc. in either Audacity or Reaper.  Having used table-top recorders, a DAW is more than a little daunting!

If you are going thru a tough time and it feels like God isn't hearing your prayers, I highly recommend the book "Hope In The Dark" by Craig Groschel.  I was in tears many times through this short book.

I'll have to check that out, Alldat.  For the most part (apart from Dean Koontz), I don't really read fiction much anymore.  I'm reading Zenith 2025 by Tom Horn, and interested in a book by Josh Peck (he's into quantum physics and Biblical prophecy).   Cool

Hubby is getting better very slow.
He's frustrated that he isn't able to do the things he did. 
Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I've told him be patient.

It's very hard to have to wait, especially for someone as active as Aart, he used to bicycle a lot didn't he?

It is difficult for men to not be able to do what they want to do.  We are not used to that and it feels emasculating.  Be patient with him as well, Vonnie.

That's what I have figured out.
He is very frustrated that he can't do all things he wants to do.
The healing goes slowly this time.

Yes, he was a very actice with race biking.

Thanks so much Chris for your words.
I try to be patient, but sometimes he drives me nuts..
