Thanks, Mikey, for the Win!

The new Winning Number is a Post Count Number which I have committed to memory. (...What was that number, again???)


[Rules:]

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread.
6. No double posts. Violator buys a round for the house in The SETI Refugee Pub.
7. Additional rule -- No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post.)

Message 1545 - Posted: 1 Mar 2019, 16:32:52 UTC

Well, I sold some RAM to Upgrade a computer to a local guy. I made $63.51 after purchasing replacement RAM for myself. Not bad for one hour's work! 😀

I was trying to get new RAM for the guy, but my Parts' Source was out of stock on the RAM I wanted... Happened to have the same RAM in the same quantity on hand in my 6 Mo. Old used System. The guy was interested and said he didn't mind if the RAM was used, so I pulled my RAM and sold it to him. 😀

Needed the replacement order for the Used System as the guy "MAY" buy this System in the next few months to replace a MUCH older System that he has. New RAM order from Amazon placed this morning. 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-C14 2400MHz - (4 x 8GB Sticks).

No Crunching... He's a local Chiropractor, and needed more RAM in one of his Systems. He needs to replace another System that cannot be Upgraded. He may buy my 6 Mo. Old System in a few months, OR, get a new System from me. 😀

I know, right!!!???!!! The one that I did Upgrade is a Dell that is between 2 & 3 Yrs. Old. I pulled one 16GB DDR4 Dell RAM Stick, and installed 4 Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-CL14 2400MHz 8GB Sticks - 32GB Total. The System that could NOT be Upgraded is an HP Pavilion that has 2-DIMM Slots, DDR3, at 6GB Total. I looked up the Specs, and the System could ONLY go up to 8GB RAM. So, NOT worth the time and money to buy two 4GB DDR3 DIMMs.

I hope he buys my Used System. Then I can just about pay off one credit card!!! AND, the Mac Pro 5,1 will almost be paid in full!!! 😀

Well, the System would need to be 'modified' slightly to give the best performance for his business. So, stripping the Hard Drive, ($25), adding a Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD, ($160 + Bracket Box for Hot Swap Bay $10), and Windows 10 Pro x64 DVD $140, Plus my time, I've quoted him $1,700 out the door for my System.

Any additional Software provided by him for me to Install is also subject to additional time...

Just sent Annie a PM via BOINC, Einstein, and now here.

Her phone is having issues, and I don't think she's aware of the problem. BT needs to investigate and repair for her.

Hey TL what was the name of the Office clone software that works on Mac's, my phone gave me free Office but now won't let me edit any of the files because I'm not signing up for an Office365 account.
Thank you and keep up trying for Anniet.

Well, it's NOT "Office Clone"; the Suite I use is LibreOffice. LibreOffice is Open Source, I believe it started on Linux, was then ported out to MacOS and Windows environments. It's another alternative to MS Office, just as Apache OpenOffice is also Open Source.

Quality of Apache OpenOffice has FALLEN, that's why I switched a few years ago to LibreOffice. IF you also take a prior ".doc" or ".docx" File from MS Office with Times New Roman as the Font, LibreOffice WILL import, (automatically), Times New Roman for regular use in LibreOffice. <<--- I do this routinely. I prefer Times New Roman, and once imported I make it the Default Font.

[EDIT:] LibreOffice is a complete package and is equivalent to MS Office Professional Suite.

I sent a PM with a Link to LibreOffice. They have TWO Versions at the Page once you hit the DL Link... 6.2.1 is the "Bleeding Edge"/Beta Version, 6.1.5 is the "Conservative"/Regular-Full Version. I'm on 6.1.5.
