Reading Rainbow flaring up on KickStarter

This is probably the best news I have heard all month  TV Actor, Internet personality  Levar Burton started a Kickstarter campaign to bring back a project he was previously involved with. Reading Rainbow.  They have raised 3 Million USD already but at 5 Million, We can get RR on video game consoles and streaming devices like the Roku. Finally get it on Android too. I don’t own an Apple iphone or iPad so can’t use the app.

30 days left to go.  Awesome show when it was on TV one of the few reason I  even watched PBS back in the day. Reading time happened a lot more often on that show  than  at my library.

Looks like you can leave gameplay questions in the comments section and have a good chance of getting a response.

A few freezing days

Here in Illinois, we have been experiencing some really cold weather. For the past few days the temps have been below freezing. -14 , -11 and haven’t hit above freezing. This is on top of the several inches of show that we got.

It’s been so bad that none of the local restaurants were willing to deliver and the public schools are closed because of the cold temps.

Don’t use Memtest86 3.x on newer computers

So I was troubleshooting this Toshiba Notebook when I wanted to check if the memory/RAM was in working order. Here comes in Memtest86. The only problem was that I didn’t have a dedicated CD-R boot CD made of the latest release.

I used an old version of Memtest86 it was version 3.3 or something. It loaded and ran the tests. Saw the CPU as a Intel Pentium III @ 2.0 Ghz.  In actuallity the CPU was an Intel Pentium Dual core @ 2.10 Ghz
