HOH OFFICIAL - Good Morning/Day/Night thread...

HOH OFFICIAL - Good Morning/Day/Night thread...
(Maybe STICKY this thread?)

REASON for This Thread...
If you run a forum, a thread like this is good.
Many forums have these threads.
Members come and log in and much of the time only READ posts.
This thread gives them a place to just post a "Hello" to everyone, letting people and the admins know that they were here even though they didn't have any real useful On Topic posts to post.
As an admin of 5+ forums myself, I like to know that people were at my forum and stopped in to at least read and hopefully post a "hello" and maybe something more if they can.
Posts in this thread can also be used not only just to say "Hello", but also as a way to post what is happening in your part of the world on a day to day basis.
;)

Meanwhile - Back at the Ranch...

Ohhh - HAPPY FRIDAY!!! :P
Have a Great day and a Wonderful Weekend!

Happy Friday indeed! I got my hands on my very own legal copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit today! I also got Office 2010 Professional. Now for about 3 more gigs of ram in my PC and I'll be set! I expect to start the rebuild of my main computer tomorrow night till dawn baby!

Good idea on this HOOK and thus, it is stickied now!
~Peace~

I liked the way you stated you got your "own legal copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit today!" What stands out to me is legal..... :lol:

I am just giving you a hard time..... My wife has Windows 7 on her laptop. I do not think it is the Ultimate version though.

I am a creature habit, so I like to use XP. Any congrats!!!! What type of memory is needed/wanted?
Are you going to pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

Good Saturday morning 02-12-11.

Is it good? Not for me this very second. My system might not be able to run this 64bit version of Windows 7 Ultimate. Grrrrrrrrr! I have looked everywhere and checked many things and ran several programs and when it is all said and done, I'm still not sure if my old PC can run this profgram or not!

While I think my processor is 64 bit compliant, I don't think my motherboard is. I ran a program from Microsoft that is supposed to tell you if your PC can run Windows 7 and if your programs are compatable as well. It said I can run Windows 7 32 bit. Iread in otherplaces where it onlydepends on the processor being 64bit compliant and mine (in testing) shows to be compliant.

My processor is a Pentium IV 3000mhz w/Hyper Threading. The mobo is a Intel D945GTP if anyone else wants tro look around for me. Intel says my mobo can run 64 bit Vista so I'm pretty sure I'm in good shape and thus I'm still setting up the PC for the big rebuild! Good morning all!
~Peace~

Anybody (else) that is computer savvy please read Hermskii's post above. :|

Anyway, from me, Good Saturday morning to you all!
This cold that I have had keeps hanging on and keeps me from functioning very well.
Very tiring. :roll:
Our below zero weather temperatures have gone away for a bit and we are into the 30's and maybe even a 40 or so is insight. YAY! :P

Ya'll have a good one.

Intel says it will run Vista 32 & 64... but doesnt say anything about 7. I would be pretty confident that if it will run vista, then it can run 7 since both OS's are similar backend wise. I trust that you will do a backup or maybe even Ghost your machine. Perhaps, start with a fresh install on a new Hard Drive, leaving your current build in tact.

That is what I did! I am very excited! I went from XP Pro 32 bit with 1 gig of ram to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit with 4 gigs of ram. Now, I'll start researching to see what the fastest processor is that I can put into this old machine which I have lovingly named "Black Betty" since the day I got her.

I still have plenty to do but the base system is installed with zero issues. I had some trouble at first with 1 of the 4 sticks of ram being bad out of the box. I troubleshot it, determined it was the issue, returned it and got another and all is AWESOME!
~Peace~

Yes sir! "Black Betty" indeed. I also have a White Betty too. That is the PC my son plays on. It is almost as good as mine but is all white. I actually have their drivers listed as Black Betty and White Betty drivers.
