As you probably have noticed I haven't been around much. There are a number of issues going on here right now. First my C drive crashed. I tried to reinstall using the latest Acronis upgrade. Like before it failed to reinstall; I am through with Acronis. So I purchased a 1TB SSD and started reinstalling everything. About 90% through that my wife fell and broke her hip. She was 65 miles (96.5 kilometers) away and was taken to a hospital in Buffalo NY (71 miles (114.3 kilometers)) that specializes in bone breakage; the Buffalo pro sports teams go there. But it as a 1.5 hour drive one way. She is now in physical therapy in Brockport NY, a mere 6 miles (9.7 kilometers) away.

My sons and I are rebuilding our homes entering steps so they accommodate a walker. Tomorrow I have people coming in to replace a couple of windows. I have our driveway rebuild scheduled for the following week but I may have to cancel. I'm looking into having our bathtub replaced with a shower and I may have to look into a stair lift for her, depending on what the therapist suggests. Thus I have a ton on my plate so if I don't respond to any questions please be patient.

PS - I'm ready for a good drinking bing wink grin

Life indeed. We’ve been there more than once.

Best to all of you and we hope your wife is rapidly on the mend.

Wow, that is a lot on your plate!

I am impressed by the way you are withholding nothing that would enhance your wife's comfort, even though its all VERY expensive! You are a remarkable man, my friend. Do what you must, we'll be here when you get back. Thanks for keeping us informed.

Wow.... when it rains it pours.... take it one day and one step at a time. Do the things that need doing first, and do them first. Everything else can wait.

We'll probably still be here when you get back.

Hi Mario

Thinking of you both, just do what you can when you can, and I hope your wife recovers soon.
Keep playing the music I know it helps at difficult times.
My very best regards to you both.

Mario,

I'm sorry to read about you're wife's fall. I'm glad she is in the recovery phase and scheduled to soon return home. My thoughts and prayers for everyone in your family. Recovery can be a stressful process so it's good to read you have a support system in place.

All of us regardless of age are one major health crisis away from a complete lifestyle disaster. The home I bought in a retirement community has a walk in tub in the 2nd bathroom and a wheelchair ramp both installed by the previous owner. I'm told it was $11,000 for the tub and $7,000 for the ramp a few years ago. He died the week before the ramp was finished and I bought the place from his wife. Right now I don't need either of those things but you never know...

You're a good man Mario my thoughts are with you.

Bob

Hey Mario old friend, know what you're going through. My wife had a hip replacement last year, she's now got a slipped disc and severe sciatica. personally, I have pleural plaques which is mild asbestos poisoning, bronchial problems to name a few. We both can still laugh at each other though. You take care old friend and we'll look forward to hearing your music soon again

GOOD NEWS - yes I had to shout!

The wife is coming home this Sunday, 9/15. I will be very busy with her for a couple of weeks but I just might find some music time soon. I hope to do some recording and listening to the forum members music.

Again I greatly appreciated all of the good wished and prayers from my Internet friends here. You guys and gals are the best!

Great to hear about your wife's continuing recovery Mario.

As regards Acronis (I have 2018) hate it, only user an older version 2010 which is simple and seems to work fine, Acronis latest version is just a overblown piece of junk from my experience with it.

Maybe Nacrium Reflect which has a free version might work better for you.

Mario - good news for your wife.

I've actually had no issues with Acronis 2018 (and have been using Acronis in various versions for the past 15 years or so), but it could be machine dependent (I use it successfully to image 3 of my computers, but I don't use it for regular backups, just full disk imaging - and even then, I use the Linux boot disk to do the image backup). I have also tested it enough to feel confident that I can restore from the image backup, although I have occasionally had to "fix" the boot sector after a restore (which is no big deal).

I have had good luck with Acronis until the 2019 version. I always verify a full disk image and in both cases it was verified. But when I tried to use it it would not reimage the HD. Note I always used the Linux boot disk and the last backup I made was onto a new HD. I checked the HD after the reimage failure and there were no bad sectors.

That's good to know, Mario. I've been getting bugged to upgrade to 2020, but I'm happy with 2018 and since it works for me, I think I'll stay there.

Hi Mario. It's great to know that so many good folks here wish you well. Also fantastic to hear that Linda is doing so well.

When I finally switched to win 10 from win 7, I used Acronis. It would not restore (thankfully, I have Carbonite). I had to contact my pc manufacturer. He led me through the bios and he discovered that my archival dvd was a bad disk! What a pita to reinstall all those pgm files. I know that you will get yours going again soon with your excellent computer knowledge, Mario. Now that I'm back, I'll try to check in here more often.

I just uninstalled ATI 2018 yesterday and installed ATI 2010 in windows 10.

ATI 2010 release 5.021 will work in 10 but later version for that year won't.

I do like to image within the program itself when windows 10 is running, and ATI was a total PITA, doing this.

Such a simple GUI in ATI 2010 and so far has been working fine.

Mario ...

In my prolonged absence, I wasn't aware of your wife's issues. I read through the thread ... so glad to hear she is back home and on the mend. My wife's health issues are the primary reason I've been absent.

Wishing a full and speedy recovery for your wife and a little rest for you! Best to both of you ...

Alan

She is home and making marvelous progress. She can climb the stairs in our split level home by using a cane. She uses a walker for everything else. She is in physical therapy twice a week. She isn't driving yet but we are taking short walks together. I still have to help her get dressed, get her most of her meals, and do everything else that she can't do: thus little time for music. She also now has a respiratory problem and an allergy problem that is being taken care of via many doctor visits, but things are looking up there also.

All in all everyone is amazed at how far she has done in such a little time. She does have a very positive attitude and that helps a lot.

Hi Mario,

Best wishes to you and your wife.

My wife Eva broke her hip some time back. It was a lot of work but we got through it.

I hope everything goes really well for you and your wife.

Cheers,

Billy

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
