As good as the "plow day chili" was, it must be awesome now.

 

It always seemed to me that chili gets better as it 'ages'  :D :D :D

Milked this am, tucked the discbine away in the shed, then been putting more purlins on the shop roof.  Looks like the hay will need teddered again this afternoon & baling not until tomorrow.  Sunny yes, but cooler, so curing is slow.  Going up to 80 today, so it should cure for baling tomorrow easily.  Our guy came & filled all our propane tanks, and my dairy supply guy just came.  Maybe I'll get more accomplished this afternoon.

Well, I wuz wong.....hay dried plenty after dinner.  130 small square bales & 30+ rolls.  Counter on roll baler showed 3 when I got done. :(   I don't know why, but I am more tired than ever today.  Didn't work hard enough to be this tired.  Then came in & my computer was naturally in sleep mode, but wouldn't wake up!  It wouldn't even shut down by holding the button.  The power button flashing like it's supposed to.  So I pulled the plug on the computer, and the light continued to flash!  Weird as heck.  Then I remembered I added a USB hub extension today that has a AC supply to it.  Unplugged it, and light went out.  Stranger still, why there is an AC adapter for it I have no idea, as my mouse usb is plugged into the hub & is working fine without the adapter power!  Oh well, I'm up & running, so I'll figure the weird stuff out later.

The USB hub is powered because some devices like GPS or MP3 player use the power from the USB port to power up the device and or charge the batter.  The main hub on the Motherboard can only handle so many of these devices plus your other USB that may be connected so the power on the hub provides a boost to the devices on that hub.

 

That all being said I've not seen a powered hub keep a computer from shutting down, so that part is strange to me.  Don't you have a battery back up on the power side of the computer?  If So did you unplug from the wall or the battery backup?

Bill, I unplugged the AC cord from the back of the PC.   Nothing shut down till I unplugged the USB hub power adapter, then all was fine again. The USB hub is just handline my mouse, battery backup information cable, and a TV tuner cable.  All are working fine.  I got this hub because I had all my USB ports full & couldn't even use a USB memory stick without unplugging something.  I'll just leave the adapter unplugged.

Oh, and the Massey 285 that blew the head gasket has begun leaking oil AGAIN!  Dad was right there the whole time working on it the last time to where I couldn't do things how I wanted.  I was never satisfied that we found the source of the leak, and we didn't.  Dad was SURE it was an o-ring under a fitting and started putting it back together.  This kind of thing is getting old, so next time I have to split this thing, I am doing all the work or it isn't going back together.  I can ensure it not going back together till I am SURE it's fixed by hiding a major part so it can't!  

  Today wasn't as good as the last few days, but not that bad really.  But knowing I have to split the 285 again was a blow.  I am sick of working on that thing, though it's not all it's fault.

More like work security, as it ensures more work, but no more pay.
