  • I have Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium running on my laptop. A message comes up that there is a problem...?

    I have Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium running on my laptop. A message comes up that there is a problem in Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0; then shortly thereafter, the screen goes black and I have to restart.

    I have Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium running on my laptop. A message comes up that there is a problem in Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0; then shortly thereafter, the screen goes black and I have to restart. I can use the system for perhaps an hour and the whole scenario repeats. I have done a little research on this and am puzzled that v. 2.0 is supposedly intended only for Windows XP; so I ask myself, "Why is it on my Windows 7 system?" If my problem is due to some problem within .NET Framework 2.0, could I possibly uninstall it and run solely on .NET Framework versions 3.0 and 4.0? I'd love to reinstall Windows and see how that benefits me but the DVD has been misplaced. So I am stuck with this installation. I just really hope that this is a solvable software problem as replacing the laptop is not so easy. I sought to uninstall .NET 2.0 but it was not listed in Programs; only the 4.5.1 which has been installed only a few days ago. Since it was available, I uninstalled 4.5.1; the problem continued (not surprisingly). And I re-installed 4.5.1; still the 2.0 problem continues to crop up. Until this problem came up, the laptop was performing as well as could be expected. It uses a 64GB SSD and 8GB of memory; it restarts in 15 seconds and is very stable... until now.

  • Do you think that there is a need for a charitable, non-profit business that repairs cars?

    This would be a referral-only program; that is, it would not be advertised publicly.

    This would be a referral-only program; that is, it would not be advertised publicly. A person would have to get a referral from their church, government welfare, dept. of vocational rehabilitation, Community Action, etc. I am seriously considering setting this up and putting to use my three decades of work experience for the sake of people who need their car repaired for whatever reason. I would be living off of my Social Security and not be paid anything for my work. Of course, the funding of something like this is going to be a bit pricey to start; I believe that crowdsourcing would serve me well. It's the on-going expenses that have me most concerned. Someone is going to have to have deep pockets to keep this operation afloat. But my real question is if there is sufficient demand for this type of service?

If no answer, I will continue to go through them all until I find it. I'm just concerned that I will find it in the last episode that I choose to check... after going through all the other forty or so.

  • La Crois√©e dans un labyrinthe √©tranger (manga): Will I ever find this manga in English?

    It does look doubtful as it seems to only be serialized in "Dragon Age Pure"; thus it is only in a magazine with other stories and spread out over several months. Images that I have found appear to be in manga format and in Japanese. Is there no hope for me? I have watched the twelve animation episodes and truly enjoyed that.

    My options are very limited. I must graduate this quarter. I have nearly zero desire/motivation to do my school work. I have had a preliminary physical evaluation by a doctor; nothing unusual from standard tests. I have a second appointment with the psychologist in two more days but every day is hyper-critical to accomplishing what needs to be done. Instead I have spent the last several hours on Yahoo Answers. Other days have been wasted on the Internet. I don't dare tell my wife as she will not be able to handle the news. (She's already been married to me for 32 years; how much more do I need to torture her?) I am secretly hoping that there will be this magical medicine. I have had experience with such a prescription: Prozac. Back in 1994, it changed my life and I wouldn't be without it now. Complicating the whole matter are some other factors. I have some indications that I am developing dementia which kind of screws your life up in a major way... especially if you are just finishing schooling of which you have dreamed for over twenty years and you have been getting freakin' straight A's in all your classes and you experience college burnout. As I rant here, I realize that no one out there is going to have a response that can even begin to address the situation. I am probably asking this just out of sheer frustration. I have been researching college burnout; that's a real threat. I have been out of work since January 2009 and being 56 years old with only an Associate's degree in my field of proposed work career going up against the rest of my classmates who at least aren't half-insane and have some decades of work potential in them. I can't even complete my thoughts here. Been trying to get qualified to be on Social Security Disability but I am not crazy enough or disabled enough to qualify. Yet I have averaged nine months per job in my thirty-year work history, proving my undesirability or inability to work. Well, I'm going to post this mess regardless, get some crappy answers (if any), and then delete it to stop the madness/nonsense from rolling in. But... there's always hope? (Ha! That's a good one. Just like the Law of Attraction; pure B.S.)

I already understand that I will not be able to be independent nor be a care provider as I am now. I know that I will not be able to drive or hold down a job. But what will I be able to do? WIll I be able to read? Could I enjoy my music? Could I at least watch TV? I have been given an insight as to how I may experience things in general by way of a dream; that is, I posed the question to myself, "What will it be like to be demented?"; and my subconscious answered me through a dream. Although the experience was not pleasant, I am grateful for the insight. Nonetheless, I want to face this change in my life armed with as much knowledge as possible. Ideally, I would want information from dementia patients themselves... but I understand that that is not really possible, given their detachment from reality. So I will have to settle for the experiences of their care-givers. Whatever you can share will be appreciated.
