AG, as our resident librarian i have a question for you.

I got a cd out of the library which went put into the the computer it registers it but when play is pressed all the tracks are quickly skipped thru before it stops. Tried it on a different machine and the same thing happens. Should i phone the library in the morning or just tell them when it's returned?

I would phone them to see if others have asked them this same question and thus they have already done some troubleshooting with them. Sometimes people think it will take us hours to answer their question, but we have already answered that same question 5 time during the week and know the path well. Be prepared to tell them what the technical specs are for the machine you are using and the software program(s) you used to try to play it (Windows Media Player, etc).

Hopefully they haven't played fast-and-loose along the fringes of copyright law and made backups of backup cds (clones of clones dropping in quality - reminds me of John's tooth) that might be imports of some nature. It looks legit, right? And not too scratched up - I doubt it is a scratch issue though. It probably is more of a software issue.

Please update us with the answer you receive. Pass the wisdom along.

Anybody out there have something to add that might help in solving this problem?

 

Going by the paper ticket thing that has the date on it it's never been taken out before (but it might just be a new piece of paper). Its not a copy, i think its just a dud.

Thank you.heart

How much has changed on your street since Google did it's street view of it?

Nothing. More surprised one of those carts came down my very bumpy lane as go at the wrong speed and your head will continually bounce of the car-roof whilst your body goes side to side and your suspension will become two.

 

How about yourself, AG, any changes to the street where you live?

 

Quite a day here weather-wise. Ferocious howling winds, driving rain, heavy dark skies, clear blue skies, and now there is light snow. The joys of winter.

Not much on our street either. The reason I thought of asking this was that the other day some people came by to look at the house that is for sale next to my mother-in-law's house. Hubby was out working on the new garage he is building (as a side note, I know the steps of installing a garage door if anyone needs help). He overheard one of the guys say, "Those cars have been sitting in that same spot for 5 year because they are in the Google street view." They didn't know that hubby could hear them. He quipped back at them, "More like they have been there for well over 5 years." That started up a 45-minute conversation about the house and the area.

The whole region around here is watching the skies. We are in for a wintry mix starting any moment now. The freezing rain is the biggest fear because it takes down power lines. We had a bad storm 2 years ago that kept us out of power for a week. What was even worse was that the water department for our little community didn't have a generator so the pumps went down, and we were without water for a few days. Luckily, there is a shower at hubby's office I could use before he took me to work.
