14.04.2008 – Monday 14 April – TV Tuners are Bad
- • Took Bronwen’s faulty RAM back to Umart. Fortunately it failed memtest there so I got store credit. Unfortunately they didn’t sign the store credit. When I went to the Umart shop to buy new RAM for Bronwen and a SATA DVD drive for me, I had to get the manager to sign my credit note, and take the 3% credit surcharge off it.
- • Drove to Woolworths at Indooroopilly with Maz and Stella to do shopping. Drove out to Bronwen’s to drop her RAM off. Drove back to Maz’s. Chatted for a while.
- • Up all night messing around with the media centre. Gave up installing Vista again, could not get TV tuner to work. Ghosted the previous install back. The media receiver service fails to start, complaining about being unable to find a file. I have no idea why. Anyway, after hours and hours of pointless effort, it’s back to how it was before I started.
