I Lost One Of My Windows 7 PCs This Weekend
Mobo was Intel DG965OT circa 2006. Moved to another case an expanded and CPU upgraded. It was my wifes PC. She only occasionally used it for shopping and surfing.
USB keyboard and mouse stopped working. Hmmm… Did an update break something? Reboot…keyboard not found. Changed keyboard, same thing. Complete shutdown, unplug power for a minute, reboot, same thing. Plug into different ports, same thing. Maybe PSU going bad? Swap in different PSU, nope. Not worth any more effort. I’ll keep the parts around.
Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:

Slaybaugh said that Northam’s proposal is not germane to the original legislation related only to work zones and noted that lawmakers already failed to pass a broad “hands-free driving” bill earlier this year.
Well that’s the rub isn’t it? You should’ve passed the “hands-free driving” bill. Irresponsible.
Snapshot of extinction: Fossils show day of killer asteroid
New research released Friday captures a fossilized snapshot of the day nearly 66 million years ago when an asteroid smacked Earth, fire rained from the sky and the ground shook far worse than any modern earthquake.
It was the day that nearly all life on Earth went extinct, including the dinosaurs.
