    Yankee Stadium Tribute to Eddie Layton /Bob Sheppard 

    I seen this youtube video and wanted to comment how great it is . I grew up in NY and went to a ton of Yankee games . I remember my first time to Yankee stadium and walking thru the tunnel to sit at my seat . The players seemed bigger then life to me being a kid and all . I remember Eddie Layton and the sound of the organ as you sat back and listened to his set before the game . There was nothing like that . It gave you goose bumps and the feeling was electric . Yankee Stadium is much different today without Eddie and soon Bob Sheppard won’t be around . Things just are not the same as they were . Things are still good don’t get me wrong but the time has passed .

    Microsoft Test 70-292 MCSA 2003 

    Hi Folks ,


     Well I finally passed this Microsoft test after 3 times failing . I’m not ashamed to admit it either because a lot of people failed this one . They were supposed to retire this test along with 70-296 but they extended it until May (I think ) .

    By the forth time I was like if I pass I pass whatever . The last time I didn’t even study one bit . I managed to get  a 775 .


    So some pointers if you have failed a bunch of times and are trying to pass before the deadline . Do not beat yourself up over the test . Its very tough on technical stuff but also tough on points (its weighted heavily ) So what I would do is take it very relaxed . Use Microsoft’s second chance .

    Do know your DNS like the back of your hand . That will give you a good chance to pass but know everything else as well SUS ,Terminal Services , Certificates ,active directory .They do not give you much of a margin so know that going in . Try not to take it personl which I did the first few times . I thought I had passed all three times only to find out I was not even close .

    700 to pass 40 questions . The earlier version of the test was 50 questions and much easier . Lucky Us right ?


    Just relax and you will do it . I’m sure .

    Something Else to Talk About (Upgrading the PS3 Hard drive ) 

    Hi Folks ,


     I had gotten recently a PS3 with a 40 GB had drive and decided to get a 250 GB drive to replace it  . I got a Samsung (the same Hard drive PS3’s come with ) 250GB 5400 2.5 drive . It was very easy replacing the hard drive . If you do a search on Google you will find multiple sites . Even Youtube has some videos on it . So I’m not going to get into it . What I wanted to explain is 2 things :

    I think they re-engineered the PS3 because my PS3 Hard drive slides straight in as apposed to Sideways like earlier models . Also the screws were a pain to unscrew (if you have the wrong tools you need precision tools Philips ) .


    Now for the part that  took me a long time to find out . So I replaced the Drive booted up expecting to format the drive but got an error stating that the system needed 2.20 Firmware (Software to load ) . I originally thought I had a bad drive and most people might think the same . No matter how you slice it …it looked as though I was stuck . I searched the Internet to find out if anyone else ran into this problem . One person I found had so here is what you need to do .

    After replacing the Hard drive plug in a Flash drive with the 2.20 update on it but create the following file structure on the flash drive .

    PS3>Update>(Your 2.20 firmware upgrade file ) . Remember that your flash drive has to be FAT32 .

    When you boot up the system it will say it cannot start unless you reformat with the 2.20 software and it tells you to press the 2 middle buttons on he controller (Start and the other one forgot the name ) simultaneously. It will then look at the flash drive and proceed to format your new hard drive and you will good to go .


    Hope this helps someone .

    • PS3 40 GB 7:30 pm on April 29, 2008 Permalink

      Yesterday. I bought PS3 40 GB at Amazon.$399.99

      I had the same problem. I replaced the 40gb Hitachi with a 250gb Western Digital Scorpio drive. I used a CD-R disk and burned the 2.30 update.

    • Vmantrance1 2:46 pm on May 7, 2008 Permalink

      Oh by the way… I was up and running in 10 minutes from the time the disk was inserted. The 250gb HDD yields 205gb of free space.

      Cool I’m glad that my pain has helped out !

      Just wanted to add my 2 cents. I was having the same problem and even exchanged two drives before I figured out what the problem was. I had copied the .pup file to my flash drive but did not realize that the file size was 0kb. After two days and a lot of frustration and wasted time I discovered it and downloaded the update again. Everything ran fine after that. Such a small thing and so much time wasted! Maybe this will help someone else.
