Yet another apology – and a PDF on flashing your BIOS

So I haven’t been on the blog in a while.  I guess there’s two reasons:

1 – I’m actually getting significant traffic for older posts so I don’t have to post 16 things a day just to get hits.

2 – I’m still completely busy.  I have been sick on and off in addition to my earlier complaints.  I still haven’t finished my article for the Daily Yonder, but I am a few weeks from finishing my 12-credit Leadership/Professionalism course.

So anyway, I’m back with more borrowed content.  This one is again from Tech Republic.  it’s a PDF on “10 Common Mistakes to Avoid When Flashing Your BIOS.”  OK, maybe it’s not something we do every day, but it is something that system builders and enthusiasts have to do when they build a new machine, and it’s something that occasionally comes up when troubleshooting, especially on older machines.  In the recent past, I had to update the BIOS for an older Dell machine so that it would boot from a USB stick.  So there are uses for it, and here’s the PDF on how to do it most properly.
