Rugby Virginia HS Girls Team

Posted by delta on 30th May 2017

Rugby Virginia’s Representative Team – which will participate in Regional Cup tournament – had to move their practice/tryouts from yesterday to today (due to Memorial Day activities at the park)…

The practice/tryouts will be from 18:00-20:00 tonight at Franconia Park (approximately 1.5 hours from our home base)…

If you girls would like to go, please text me – if 3 or more of you would like to go then we’ll meet at Avery at 16:15… Bring proper rugby attire, mouth pieces, cleats and water…

Coming Rugby Info

Posted by delta on 16th May 2017

So, I’m not really using my blog at the moment.  I can’t write about any of the shows I do anymore cause of the proprietary info they throw around in the room.  I haven’t done a single concert, play or anything remotely imaginative since moving to the mainland – so, obviously, I have nothing to write that anyone would be interested in reading…

I’m going to start up the blog (HERE) again as I am now helping to coach the Ladies High School 7’s Rugby Side out of Winchester Virginia…  I’ll be putting up info for the ladies and their parents right here on the site for all to read…  This may get me to start writing about other stuff again, but since moving to the mainland I have simply been unmotivated – so I promise nothing…

I haven’t even written a poem since coming to the mainland – I still have more than half a book to write and have had writers block since moving out here in late 2014…

Event Planning for Technical Directors

Posted by delta on 17th July 2014

My new book is out on Amazon/Kindle already and will be out on iTunes most likely Sunday. I’d really like any input any of you may have on either of my books – slip me an email when you get the chance and let me know what you think of them…

I’ve been writing a lot lately. Probably because I have found the perfect subjects to write about (for me at least)…

My next book will start a series that history buffs, and those who enjoy poetry, will like… I’m going to write the second book before the first; so, if I want to publish them in order, it will be a while before they go on sale. I’d give you more info than that, but you’ll read it all shortly…

OSX Lion Fix

Posted by delta on 25th January 2012

So, this is what I ended up doing…

I found that I couldn’t get a Time Machine backup from the old OSX installed because File Vault had been corrupted (just my home folder, not any of the other stuff) when I had tried to undo it after the upgrade. So I loaded the last good version of a Time Machine backup that I could find. From there, I had to make a “hard” backup to another external HD (basically saved my Home Folder)…

Once that was complete, I reinstalled Lion from scratch – not an upgrade, a fresh install. Once the fresh install had been made, I was able to pull over the applications from the Time Machine backup and then pull over the data from the hard drive (of my previous Home Folder)…

The whole process took 24 hours, but was well worth it – everything has worked great since…
