It's working fine at the moment and I've got most stuff backed up, but it kept crashing, first IE and then Windows. I got a new tower anyway, but it's Windows 7 instead of the Vista I was on so I expect I'll have trouble getting back to full operations. Also it's 64-bit instead of the 32 I was using. I thought Tracker or something wouldn't work on 64 bit.

I ran a Services Repair maybe that fixed it? Or it could be a power supply problem but I don't think so.

I have a 64 bit Windows 7 and run WitP:AE and tracker with no problems. We can make it work.

A Dell? Oh well, we should still be able to get it to work.

More delay, my hard drive appears to be failing


I clone off my hard drives every 18 months or so. You need another computer, two SATA to USB connectors. External enclosures bought without drives in them work. A new hard drive as well as a few hours on another computer and some software like Casper. Once you hook up the hard drives to the other computer and start Casper, it takes care of the rest. Pop the new one in the computer and it will be like nothing happened.

The computer I'm writing from right now was original built in 2001 running Windows 95. I've changed out the hard drives many times as well as the mother boards. I've upgraded OSs a couple of time and going from the DOS based Windows to NT based Windows I had to reinstall all the programs, but I was able to keep all the settings because of the cloning. Changing mother boards is a pain with NT based Windows. I wouldn't recommend that unless you have some decent computer skills. If you don't get the drivers right, it won't boot.

Bill

I've done it the old fashioned way. I already had a remote hard drive and I've copied everything I think I might need to there and will move what I need to my new PC. Thanks for the tip about Casper, I'll look into it.

I do believe I'm in business. I'm having trouble with tracker and I don't want to begin until I've got that fixed. Here's the error message. I did paste a copy of the pwsdll.dll file from the Beta2 folder to the main folder.

510 hits and no turn? Wow.

You can't use an up-to-date Java. You need Ole Dirty Bastid Java.

Java 6 sounds right. Long time since I poked it. If I look at it crossways it breaks.

I think I have the archive from the last game I played. I'm going to clear out those folders and begin the game. I figure I need to have a full turn (both J and A) in order to get Tracker and Intel Monkey something to test on. I have both python 6 and 7 installed.

See post 4848 (currently the latest) in the Tracker thread and let me know what you think.

I skimmed it. After I get my first turn sent, I'll try it. You're just too helpful, primate from Argleton.

krishub1's daughter was in a serious car accident. He may not be available for this contest. I will continue doing my turn til it's done, and if he is unable to play at that time I will solicit another opponent who is willing to play on the same terms. I'm sure any positive vibes or prayers sent her way will be appreciated.

I am sorry to hear about krishub1's daughter. If you need a replacement, let me know, I am looking for another game.
I have to retract this offer, I have taken on a second game. I do with the best for krishub1's daughter, it would
be best if she is OK and he can play the game.

Here is the response to my query on this matter:

"I appreciate your concern. There were some serious injuries but my daughter is stable and will recover. She was a passenger in a car hit by a drunk driver."

I'm going to wait as long as possible to give him the opportunity to be defeated by me.

It appears to be good news, actually excellent news, we can be thankful for that.

EHansen, I'll not forget you. If kris refuses to be a victim I'll come after you!

Sorry I missed your edit. Excuses, excuses. Everyone is terrified of me. I'll find some fool soon!

Neither are yours, entirely. Are you saying that omnivores are sinful? That's what I've always thought. But those of us with superior intellects can sort these things out. Just do what we tell you.
