Epson CX11NF Scanner Windows 7 64 Bit

Here is an example of how stupid stuff can happen. I have a couple of Epson CX11NF multifunction laser printer scanners at different locations. A HP pro book 4525S with Windows 7 64-bit home edition has regularly being used both locations to network scan from the CX 11NF scanner.

Just this week a scanning task arose and the job is placed on the Epson CX11NF flatbed and Epson scan was selected from the HP ProBook  Windows 7 program start menu.

Bye To Firefox Browser

The software version from setup a few months ago was and speed tests were great but browsing often felt as if there were lags especially compared to using dual WAN ADSL at another location.

Three Year Old Ford Territory Turbo Bonnet Corrosion

Images of the corrosion from under the painted surface of a 3 year old Ford Territory Turbo, a motor vehicle that will also drive you nuts with squeaks and endless rattles. Still have the old rusted bonnet if anyone needs any further proof!

Closing the replacement bonnet and when it was pushed shut with a flat open hand it dented! Great.

Heaps of suspension problems with this car, sway bar link pins at least 4, now up to 5 ball joints, shocks, rubbers a plenty both front and rear...

Goes really well though.
