Emmc memory messed up on Intel compute stick Got it fixed.

Got up for a wile about at 2:30 AM. Checked my e-mail and Google hangouts.

Typed the rest of yesterday and this.

3:10 AM now.

Went back to bed and got up just after 6 AM. Checked my e-mail and got one from Odroid about smart power 2 I was going to log in my server to test if can telnet to the smart power 2 but I could not connect to my server. I turn on the LCD HDMI screen and nothing. The power LED on and I unplug the power and back in.

But it will not boot! It gets some error and I took a screen show of it.


Not sure what to do to fix it looked on line and can’t find any good help.

Went to make a boot USB live Ubuntu but Windows will not let it right to the 8GB USB stick.

I guess will try the Windows on the stick by my bed.

7:58 AM now. Have to type this on the WordPress at because my server is down.

The top top I typed about 3 AM and my server was working then.

Got a e-mail back from Ian (Linuxium) and he said to boot from a live USB and run fsck on the emmc. I did and that did fix it some what but still would not boot all the way.

What fixed it was “dpkg –configure -a” and a lot of text went on the screen doing that like boot stuff.

Rebooted and it came back up.

It was past midnight and I open the new CD I bought at work. “Kelsea Ballerini Unapologetically” Started to rip it found out it’s county music. Windows media player could not auto get the cover art so I open them in MP3tag and edit it a lot. Took the pages out and scan them. I had to scan them with the USB scanner. Because the printer is on WiFi and I am connected to Comcast WiFi accost the street some place. I have to unplug my cable modem because it will just see that WiFi that don’t have any connection.

Got the new CD all scanned it took a wile to scan it and put it all in the mp3 tags. I can’t save it to my server with out internet.

It’s 3:16 AM now. Going to go to bed.

Looked at what photos and videos Google backed up.

Not going to bed.

3:28 AM now.

Got up just before 7:30 AM when Debbie called my cell phone. She said have to cancel Dad’s appointment today the roads are to bad. She said give the cell phone to Dad and I did and dad said he is drying because he can’t walk. Dad said give him a pitcher of water. I don’t know if we have one so I just got a big glass.

Had to hook up to Comcast wifi again. Then typed to Debbie some on hangouts and this.

I said maybe because Dad can’t watch TV now that he mostly does that is why he says can’t walk and drying.

7:35 AM now.

Called Comcast on my cell phone. Can only talk to a computer and I said “cable out” after a long time I could say to talk to a person and was on hold only about 2 minutes. Gave them the ticket number from yesterday. She just said some one will be out here between 2 and 5 PM. I said how it’s been over 24 hours and that’s what they said yesterday and it’s over 24 hours.

Told Dad he said he knows they want him to cut down that tree. I said it is the one were the limb came off and took down the cable from the pull.

Donald got on hangouts and said been calling Dad’s cell phone. I said it’s in the car and how he said he can’t walk and it dying. I guess because no TV to watch over 24 hours now.

8:06 AM now.

Got the mobile hotspot to work with the new name and password I did a easy one. I connected with my cell phone then with time it connected to the old one with no internet again.

Trying with my server and just the command line and can’t get it still to connect to my Windows 10 WiFi.

I went out to the car and the cell phone was not in there. Dad had it right next to him and he picked up the mouse but it was to late. I said that is not the cell phone. Donald called again and finely Dad is talking on his cell phone.

8:26 AM now.

Worked on my server but just can’t get it to connect easy. I bridged the Ethernet on my Windows 10 but could not get it to connect still. Just gave up.

8:56 AM now.

Can’t update this now. It just says “No Internet, open” It sees the xfinitywifi and I disconnect and reconnect and it don’t connect.

9:02 AM now. Just store this on my Windows 10 chrome for now till can update it.

I went out to the barn and got the long ladder in the back part of the barn. Took it out to the pole but a tree in the way to get the ladder on it. I did test it on the tree but it was to dangers. I cut that tree down with the hand saw and drag it over to the pile. I was to were out to put it on top of the wood pile.

Then went up there with the ladder. Maybe need 2 more feet taller and then would have to each back to plug the cable it. I just gave up.

Gave a video up there. It was high up. put the ladder back and got a video back in the barn.

Told Dad what I did.

Got on my comptuer and this time could connect again to xfinitywifi.

9:39 AM now.

Disconnected from the xfinitywifi so I could connect to my OnHub to connect to my server and that works. I found out all ready have that “Jackie Evancho Two Hearts” CD. But I copied it over the ones I had because I did a lot adding the tags data to the songs.

Then uploaded the 2 videos to my server I just did today out looking at the cable on the pole. Having Plex scan all now. I am not sure what folder it’s in on Plex so I just had it scan all that will take some time.

I can’t update this again now.

9:56 AM now.

Kenny came and then Debbie right after him. Debbie said she did not stop the appointment but can be late. So got Dad ready with putting pants on him but then he went to the rest room and got pee all over his pants and the floor.

Debbie took Dad to his appointment. Comcast still did not come out to fix the cable!

Got up about 5 AM and I took a flashlight out side to see if are cable is down in back. I was thinking that some cable was out for a lot of people but found out just us. It was dark out.

I thought maybe I can connect to a Xfinity neighbor but on my computer it did not see one. I looked for a small coax cable to hook up a antenna by the window. The ends look right but it don’t screw in. I switch the WiFi cables and then it seen a lot more I have one on the roof and then I got connected.

I had to disable more then 20 and I did the oldest one but like it 2014 I think it said.

Then I typed to Xfinity and they said some one will be out in 24 hours. I said about what time between 8 am and 9 pm I think said.

Windows can do a mobile hotspot and I connected with my cell phone and then wanted to see if my server would connect to it. After a long time seen it don’t see it’s name for my Windows 10. Then I seen the phone don’t ether. I don’t know why. I gave up.

It was light out so I went out back and looked batter. Got a video of it. The cable is down and a big limb on the power line. I got the ladder in the barn and then I got the big limb off the power wire. Move some other limbs that fell around there out so some time can put them in a pile.

Got another video of it.

Came in the house and Dad asked if Debbie going to come. I typed to her she said about 10:30 AM to take him to his appointment.

I found my WordPress on line and typed the rest of yesterday and this. It’s junk can’t connect to my mine WordPress with the LAN.

When we get cable back I can copy and past this. If it’s not back by the time at work I can edit this on my cell phone at work.

9:41 AM now.

Put this one line WordPress in the cell phone I keep in my car. But it’s not on line so hope it is right.

Debbie ask if recorded The last Walking Dead but did not the cable was down when it was on they my rerun it.

Checked my e-mail. Debbie said my be here about 11 AM because of the she has to go on back roads.

10:17 AM now.

Debbie came and as soon as she walked in her glasses got steamed up. We have a lot of moisture in this house because the duck work in the floor has water in them. Had to get Dad dressed.

It’s 11:11 AM now. Going to go the the senior center to eat.

Got ready and could not find my car keys. I looked and it took a wile to find them. It was in the kitchen by the microwave.

Then I went and ate at the senior center. Then went down to the sprint store. The person said it was cost about $100 a month. We talked some and that is just to much for me to pay for it.

Came back home and typed this.

12:09 PM now.

Typed some at home. But i plug in the cable modem and it only sees its WiFi then. I wanted it plugged in just incase Comcast comes out wile at work.

Typed this as I walk back to dairy.

Got a video of in and out side the dairy till I clocked in at 1:30 pm.

2 people for tee was there. They ask if had the little one. I showed them in the cooler and don’t have them.

I went up and got gloves. They were up there talking to the main manager and I waited some and talked to them on the way out. Said how it is super out the coller strips around the boxes. Makes it so easy to know what ones they are.

Bill called me. I said I got some gloves. He wanted to make sure I was there.

One egg carten was dirty and I went and got 3 paper towles. Clean it and a some dryed up milk on the floor. Had to use the scrapped on it.

Then looked a wile for a broom and dust pan. Sweep up in the coller.

Filled some milks.

Faced up every thing in dairy and pushed it up in the cooler. They had me to 9:30 PM but I had to fill the milks and I did and wrapped a 3RD skid and put it on the track. Empty my shamrock and put it back in the cooler.

Came home and gave the cats food and water.

Watched some shows that recorded on TiVo.

Did fall a sleep on it some.

A tree in the back took down are cable. Dad fell down till I got home from work.

Watched YouTube and then drank some OJ and brushed my teeth. Typed the last part of yesterday.

It’s 1:55 AM now.

Laid in bed and watched a little more YouTube and it was hard to get to sleep. I guess I did and got up about 7 AM.

Plugged in Kenny’s old PC and booted it. The Windows 10 I had was a 64 Bit install and it said can’t use that only 32 bit and I said just 32 bit when I put it on the USB stick. So I just started to made the USB stick again and this time said use both 32 and 64 bit.

Wanted to mount it with True Image but it said trail has ended. I bought a upgrade for $30 I guess that’s why the boot one said have to activate it.

The grill speaker I checked on and it had the price and were to send a check. I set it up at the bank to send a check to his PO box. About $15 with shipping. Send him a message that I sent it with the bank.

True image has a update and it’s installing it now. The Windows 10 stick is at 69% now. It takes a long time to make it.

8:13 AM now.

From Amazon order 2 SATA to IDE adaptors and 10 capacitors but they will take like a week to get. The right type for the video card in Kenny’s old Windows XP.

8:36 AM now.

96% done with the Windows 10 USB stick now.

Ate some chips as I watched a little YouTube on my TV.

Drank some OJ and brushed my teeth.

Now Windows is creating the stick. 94% on that part now.

9:13 AM now.

Laid back guess I got some more sleep.

Got up and the cable is down. So not phone/TV/Internet. It was frizzing rain out.

I watched a show on TiVo. Dad said fix the TV I said the cable is out he said the light is on and I said they are not the same. Hard to get him to get it.

He said got put down ant traps. I said if you don’t drop food on the floor or leave it on the counter would not have ants.

I went to Meijer. Had to scrap off the ice it was easy. Went to Meijer and I looked at every DVD in there $5 ban. Shrek 3 was not in there.

Went to the cooler and got the Shrek 2 I forgot to take last night. The cooler door was open and Ashely was in there working. I don’t know if she seen me or not.

Bought a Daisy cottage cheese. I had a capon for $0.50 and $1.00 off with mPerks. Bought ant traps too.

Came home and bought in the news paper and set up ant traps. Started to copy the videos from the 32GB SD card have in the dash cam I bought it in. Watched some TiVo wile I ate some Cheetos.

Drank the 2 little milks got from the senior center the other day. Made and ate a sandwich. Typed this but I can’t save it till the internet comes back on line.

1:10 PM now. Got to be at work at 2 today.

Looked what SD card I can use in the dash cam. Found a 8GB that had a android boot on it. Because what I am copying will take more then before I have to go to work.

1:22 PM now.

Went to work about then. I forgot my cell phone and used the one in the car. Downloaded a textpad and typed in it. But looks like I lost it. Dumb textpad I said save it and can’t find it any place save it with “WordPress 4-15-2018” but can’t find it on the cheep cell phone.

So hard to know what I did at work. I did get some videos when I started and ended.

Ashley was working. She got off at 2:30 PM. I got off at 9:30 PM.

Mostly worked juice, Yoplit, and milks. The new milks came in and good think I put the skids in right before the new milk came. The other people before me just puts them in front of the old milk skids.

When I came home Dad was on the floor at the start of the hall way. He said from about 5 PM. I picked him up and he said he drop some cards in his bedroom and when he went to pick them up fell. I guess he crawled out to the hall way.

I clean the floor in the kitchen and dinning room and vacuum the carpet.

Rip a CD music “Jackie Evancho Two Hearts” I played it wile I went to bed.

Went to bed watching a show that recorded on TiVo. Because are cable TV is out with the Internet and phone.
