Excerpt from Go Fund Me:

“Kimbob is suffering from Chronic Lyme Disease.   She has hit a major hurdle and we are humbly in need of your help financially to get her back to that happy part of her life!  Prayers and donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated!

If you know her as your friend, you may have noticed that she hasn’t posted new photos on Facebook since we were affected by Hurricane Florence in September 2018.  She hasn’t been able to do the things she would like to do or go to the places that she loves!  The hurricane not only devastated the town we live in (North Carolina) but it has caused her immune system to take a turn for the worse which has caused a major decline in her health.

As most people who suffer with Chronic Lyme Disease, her immune system has not been able to fight off the extra mold spores in the air, the wet ground, buildings and surrounding areas where she lives.  In recent lab testing the Dr’s found that the detoxification system isn’t processing as it should as well as her immune system is overwhelmed and is not functioning properly.   Also she is extremely sensitive to mold and chemicals right now which is a contributing factor.  The toxins along with Lyme are affecting her brain and are causing debilitating cognitive symptoms associated with Neurological Lyme Disease.”

Linking a Local Folder with Microsoft’s One Drive

You may want to sync a folder on your computer with OneDrive that isn’t one of the Windows standard C: drive folders like “Documents”, “Pictures” etc. If that’s the case, here’s the command line for you to use to link any folder with OneDrive.

mklink /j “<path to configured OneDrive location>” “<path to directory you want synced>

So, if I had a folder called “photos” on the D: drive that I wanted uploaded and synced with my OneDrive, and my OneDrive was configured to exist at c:\onedrive (the default is C:\users\<username>\onedrive) I’d do the following command in a Command Prompt window:

mklink /j “c:\onedrive” “d:\photos”

You’ll see the “photos” folder appear in your OneDrive, and the OneDrive app should start syncing the files from your local storage to the remote cloud-based storage.

Fender Fret Wire, and My Preference

From Fender:

The main fret wire maker, California-based Dunlop Manufacturing Inc., produces five main fret sizes. Listed by part number, name (where applicable), crown width and crown height, they are, from smallest to largest:

6230: The smallest fret wire found on older Fender necks (.078? x .043?).
6150: Vintage jumbo. Much wider but not as tall as 6230 (.102? x .042?).
6105: Modern narrow and tall; currently very popular (.090? x .055?).
6100: Jumbo. The largest fret wire available (.110? x .055?).
6130: Medium jumbo (.106? x .036?).

Which size you like is purely a matter of preference, although it can affect your playing style. If you like your fingers to actually touch the fingerboard when fretting the strings, frets that aren’t very tall like the 6130, 6150 or 6230 are for you. On the other hand, jumbo 6100 fret wire can provide easier playability with better sustain, tone and bending because you don’t have to press as hard to fret the strings, but your fingers probably won’t even touch the fingerboard, which could take some getting used to if you’re accustomed to smaller frets.

The main guitars I play are my Made-In-Japan EVH Wolfgang Specials. One of the primary reasons I love these guitars so is because they (and the MIC models) are the only EVH Wolfgang Specials to have “Vintage” frets on their fret boards. When production moved to Mexico in 2014, jumbo frets were used on the Specials, and they have been that way ever since. Now, only the USA made EVH Wolfgangs come with “vintage” 6230 sixed frets.
