DE should

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to I've seen a few episodes ...

I mention that most 286/386/486 M???Boards had a Capacitor on them in place of a BIOS Battery?

Those things leak like a Sieve and destroy the M'Board and I've lost count of the number that I had to scrap because of that. Even if you plugged in a Battery Pack with 2 AA Batteries in it the corrosion on the M'Board was responsible for killing the M'Board.

However saying that I still have several Power Supplies for that type of M'Board and I have to admit to hording quite a lot of stuff. I always know the moment that I throw it out I'll need it and every time that I have relented and dumped anything I've wanted it several days/weeks latter.

If I had of kept that stuff I could have made a lot of money on Obsolete Hardware that no one else has anymore.

I do however still have quite a few Pentium M'Boards with BIOS Batteries Removed and sitting here I can see 2 Athlon M???Boards with CPU's sitting in a tray on top of a Bubble Jet Printer that I use for printing CD Faces.

The Back Panel USB Ports that where a Extra for ASUS M'Boards though I only have one left now and I've used quite a lot of those over the years.

Posting to TR is writing though I very much doubt it's the writing you are talking about here.

Col, I write fiction stories, over 2 million words in nearly 50 stories

by Deadly Ernest In reply to HUM DE

completed and another half a million in 20 works in progress, all available through certain web sites as either a printed book or and electronic format book for a few bucks or some other sites for free. They range from a couple of thousand words to up to 300,000 words long.

i'm envious. I did a little poetry writing a number of years ago, but seems i've wondered away from it. I'd like to get to a point where i had enough to send to a publishing company and have it printed. Ahhh...maybe someday. Good luck DE :)

I use two names because my publisher wanted my Clan Amir series

by Deadly Ernest In reply to that's cool

not immediately associated with the first book I put with him.

Some stories can be found on my Home page - - not the latest versions though, as my writing has improved a lot in the last years or so since I updated them. Others can be found via - - -

All up I've had about 300,000 downloads from the free sites and sold close to a thousand copies from the others. not all the stories are available as freebies, but about 60% are.

I write as Ernest Bywater and the Clan Amir series is as Ernest Edwards.

One of my earliest stories was about the IT industry, first draft done back around 1998 and finally released it into the wild in 2007 - in it I predicted certain actions by some big IT players (based on their past actions and statements) and am seeing more and more of them coming true each year.

edit to add

With print on demand via you can now make available to the public stuff in any size and at almost any price. Also, sites like storiesonline and finestories allow you to put it out free to a range of readers.

Just so, when the spammers come crying that "you didn't flag DE's post, why did you flag my *****-enlarging-ugg-boot ad", I can tell them "That's because I like DE better than you!"

Thanks, I think. However, I'm NOT trying to get people

to buy my stories by mentioning it here, just letting them know where they're available, which is why I mentioned the FREE access locations first. I suppose I could put that stuff in my signature block, which I do with many of my emails.

Actually, I'd have flagged your posts "Teasey McTease" if you hadn't disclosed where to find your stuff :^0

You've mentioned this before but you left it wide open with just "I have to do some more writing."

Oh and I liked Ansu's response. :^0
