It's been a slow day so far

It's been a slow day so far. I went and sent my son John at Great lakes Naval Base a package UPS with his 320GB external hard drive ( now fully loaded with his music and videos ) and also his digital camera, speakers, his mail and a few other things in the box. I also went to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription and went to Wal-Mart to get some over the counter meds that we needed.

The above picture is a screen shot using google earth of John's ship ( building ) on base at Great Lakes Naval Base. His building is marked with a yellow tack. Click image for larger view.

My son John called during his lunch today and sounded good. He is having some problems with Windows Vista on his new Laptop. One of the problems is easily fixed. What happened was that he tried to put some software on that was not fully compatible with Vista and his computer completely froze. He was finally able to do a system restore and everything is working fine now. He cant get the Laptop to recognize his cell phone via Bluetooth but it does find everyone else's Bluetooth enabled devices. Go figure. :) John said that he also can't get the built in webcam to work and he is going to call HP about that when he gets a chance. He thinks it might be a Vista compatibility problem also. Those issues not withstanding he likes the Laptop overall. He said that it is allot better that what he initially expected. He had a busy day yesterday on Watch with several people causing minor problems. I will talk to him tonight online when he is done with his classes. He is still working on his own Blog and will continue to update it as time allows. ( mostly on weekends ). That's all the news from here.
