General Discussion / Potential New Blood Pearl
« on: October 13, 2017, 09:07:36 am »
7.30 CST this morning (yes Friday the 13th of October) Ol Vettie welcomes his first grand child into the world.

Revan (? what kind of name is that?) was born roughly 1 month premature, weighing in at 5lbs 13, 19 inches.
Altho premature, he is NOT in an incubator, but is on a CPAP for short term. He is in good health otherwise and his mother is good too.

So next year we may have a new 'light' pilot join us, lol

HDD does not recognize Windows.
Tried repair start up
tried using my recovery disks
no actual Windows 7 disk
Problem is swapping motherboard and CPU exceeds windows upgrades points. PC wont boot up without a reinstall.
Linux boots fine.

Anyone got a Win 7 Disk with activation code?
Once I install, I can upgrade to 10 for free...

Well, I am down for a long bit.
MY PC died this afternoon and I really cant afford to replace it.

Thought maybe it was power supply. I replaced that with 2 different ones (1 was original that cae in PC that I replaced right away to handle Vid Card, the other was one from an XP machine I have.) Went back to original Vid Card (because of Pwr Supply.)

No go. I think the main board is fried....

Sucks. No xtra cash right now. Gotta save so its gonna be a bit....booo

General Discussion / Vettie Here and Still Alive (barely)
« on: May 24, 2015, 02:38:54 pm »
 Vettie here and still alive.

Long story made to be short (as short as possible for me)...

Sometime in March (last couple of weeks), I began tossing up blood. A couple time in on day, but I got to feeling better rather quickly. A couple days after that, I did it again, 4 times. Never recovered from that episode.

Turns out I was bleeding internally, and had lost some 9 unit of blood. After almost 2 full weeks of not getting any better, I went to the ER. They admitted me immediately.

I was later moved to the main hospital here in town where they did a procedure to see what was going on. I found out at that time that if I had waited 3 or 4 more days, I would have died from internal bleeding.

After the procedure, they wanted to do another to fix the bleeding and my liver (no transplant). They could not do that at that facility was moved again to Huntsville so they could do they shunt implant and  hopefully stop the bleeding.

I was given 9 full units of blood. Adult human males have somewhere between 10 and 12 units. (roughly 10pints, I was given 8pints.).

In a nut shell, I almost bled to death. I was in the hospital for all of April and 1st 2 weeks of May.

Home now and Paige is taking care of me. I am on the mend and walking again, every day (was flat on my back, bed ridden while in hospital until the very last week.

Obviously, I feel better. Getting stronger each day, altho still get tired easily.So I will be back on soon.

Looking pretty close at that Resistance Pack 2, Wolfie, BK and Mauler look pretty darn good. Plus a 4 variant if you get an order in (soon). So looking forward to that....

Thanx for the Pms and the thoughts. I survived this one. Rough ride, but I pulled it out in true Blood Pearl fashion. You know wait til the end is in sight and kick some ass to pull it off.
