The weather has been still and grey these last few days - not over cold, but the absence of the sunshine makes it rather dismal and gloomy. High pressure usually brings clear skies and very cold nights this time of year, but it's been 100% cloud with this current anticyclone. At least the rain has let up, anyway.
I've spent quite a bit of time wrestling with a problem on the Ricoh AP3800 copier these last few days. The HDD failed a while back, and I replaced it with a spare I had lying around. It was accepted by the board and the system formatted it successfully, so I thought all was well, but all the functions which require the HDD are not working. The config page confirms it's present and working, but the machine behaves as if there's nothing there .... it's got be baffled, at least for the time being!
