Got Problems?

Recommended Posts

Think I might jump all in and only play the senior tees next year.If you think about it,one only needs to hit the ball 200-220 yards off of those tees maximum.I can almost leave the driver in the car and go all 3 wood for good.Heck, most of the par 3's from the senior are max 150.Now just need to reproduce a swing that is more about straight bunting versus killing the ball.Really can't wait.Guess now I can only rant if the carts aren't charged or no score card in the holders

Custom ordered an Evnroll 2 weeks ago. Shop I ordered it through (had credit) called that it came in. So excited I rushed down there to get it. They hand it to me and I take the cover off only to see that it's the wrong head. Sighhhhh I'm supposed to play on Saturday and not gonna have it in the bag probably. Bummed.

Argh... My primary laptop drive crashed and I'm not quite sure when the last data backup was done.. Running a pretty intensive file recovery program and even it keeled over on a particular sector on the drive (never seen that happen before). ☹️

I hope you end up better than I did. I had all of our family photos residing on an external hard drive - forgot to transfer them when I bought a new desktop. The external hard drive fails so 20,000 family photos plus old archived business files no longer accessible. Had to send it off to a recovery service and paid $1,000. to have the files restored. Now all of the files reside on my desktop, plus I do continuous backups to a solid state hard drive. I hate to pay money for stupid operator (me) errors like that but at least the got the files.

Hardware fails always suck. We use a program called binary biz when our clients have failed disks. It's paid software and not guaranteed to work but it's saved a few of them from needing to ship drives and pay bigger money. We're not data recovery specialists but we do best effort and sometimes it works.

 

Best thing you can do for yourself is upload a backup to Amazon s3. Dirt cheap cloud storage as long as you aren't uploading often. Do it once a month and you can cover yourself in case your backup disk also fails

If you get progressives lenses you don't have to do that.

 

Only down side is at address you can't tell if the ball is 5 feet or 5 and half feet away...LOL Just kidding A lot of people say they have trouble playing in progressive lens. But I've been doing for over 15 years and it hasn't bothered me. Or maybe it has and thats why I'm a 17 and not a 7 index B)

The guy I play with most often almost fell over trying to putt when he got new progressive lenses. He has to play in old glasses.

I hate to complain about this, but good gracious, please stop!

 

My in-laws are VERY generous to my kids with buying them Christmas gifts. They always get their daughters gifts as well, and my wife's brother-in-law and I also get some gifts. One year they bought me an Xbox. That was AWESOME! But the last few years, the bro-in-law and I get flannel pajama pants with the matching “waffle” texture top (it's still 80 degrees here), some Chinese made trinket that falls apart after one use, some shower gel, and razors.

 

My wife has been begging my in-laws to just get me a golf gift certificate, or even a gift card to a store so that I can actually use what they get me. Well, last night, I got the way-too-big PJs again, disposable razors, a trinket key chain thing, and shower gel. I can't even use the shower gel as it's a brand that makes me break out!!!

 

I get that gifts are about the “giving”, but why waste the money? $75 worth of stuff I can't use. I mean, make a donation at church instead, or something.

 

Kills me because every year, it's the SAME. EXACT. THINGS.

Now this is a real rant. Some people don't wanna listen and just keep doing the same thing since it's habbit.

I work in IT but still run into this that's why I have a redundant drive array running on my server so even if a drive fails my data is protected. Problem is, I have to make sure all the local laptops and desktops are BACKED UP TO that server. What sucks is since that last post, I've had another drive fail in my primary desktop (not as as bad so I was able to recover the data easily) and my home media server application gave up the ghost too. Corruption went down to the registry level so I can't even reload the app without reinstalling the OS. I have gotten lazy with the management of my own hardware and maintaining proper backups. Need to get back on the bandwagon so I don't have to spend my time golfing for fixing my own computers... Lol

Yeah, pretty sure the laptop drive is a physical drive head crash into the platter so if I wanted to recover the data, I would probably have to send it to a data recovery company (some of those companies actually take the drive apart in a clean room to work on the hardware directly). My wife's phone and my phone backup to a cloud provider and there were apps to do the same for the desktops, but I just didn't configure them as I was pretty busy at the time, lol. My subscription is up with them next month and I'm thinking of switching to Amazon's S3 offering or Google drive. My personal data alone is 5TB for total backup not including the three systems I run so I'll have to see which one is running a decent deal.

Must be tech failure week for me. For all the money my company makes, why can't they afford stable wifi AP's? Don't they know my connection to mygolfspy.com keeps timing out in the middle of my posts?? 🤣😂🤣

Terrible lighting makes for a terrible picture. She looks fine in every other recent picture.

OK, where to begin?  Spent a week in Pinehurst- a great place, great time and great folks-  19 of my closest golf friends, some closer than others, but great guys every one.  We get together each year and do this thing- culminating in a tournament that spans 4 days with 4 different formats and 3 different courses, and usually 3 or 4 different partners and opponents. 

 

I arrived last Wednesday and shot a sweet 81 on a never before seen course "Mid- South" - of course, there was no pressure- it was a "fun pre- tournament round!"  the next day, back on a course that I knew,  I shoot an 89.  following day 93, and so on throughout the tournament- Topping shots, sculling wedge shots, and shaving more edges than a Brazilian waxing salon... shot for S&*t and scored very poorly.

 

A couple of the winners are 20+ handicappers, who amazingly shot in the 80's on several rounds - my handicap, while not the problem in and of itself, didn't provide any assistance to me or anyone playing with me.

 

First, why do I play like crap on these trips? And how do people overcome this to play at least respectably?  I mean I usually shoot in the low to mid 80's and almost every round for me was in the 90's.  WTH?  Any assistance would be appreciated.
