bios shmyos

I found the manual for my motherboard online, and flipped through it there. What it takes to upgrade the bios is not difficult but has too many scary moments. I have had enough of those beeps and blue screens and so on and do not wish to tempt fate. I may, though, be willing to go for a Promise card. Perhaps the instructions with that card will be more complete than they were with the noname card I installed there, that never worked.

But anyway, the clock is hanging on for now. I also found the jumper settings for the slave drive online, and changed those, so there may be hope when I reinstall the drive. Maybe it will be recognized.

In the meantime, I did what I'd meant to do for a while: wrote a short review of "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell" and posted it on my book forum. I think I'll also send it to amazon.com. Yes. That's my next trick.
