I'm back on line
 
Thanks ,everyone.
Special thanks to Danger Mouse--Jiju--Creeper --Jetsweat and Ross.

My big computer is down for good. R.I.P


The new (used) laptop had a pirated copy of windows--when I updated the illegal copy the system went down----A new Windows 7 from Tiger direct and up she went!

Thanks again---Mike--

Hi oh'Mike
Glad you are back..we missed you!

gregzoll 05-08-2012 08:48 PM

Mike, download Ubuntu 12.04LTS and use it. I have it on my netbook and love it. I still have Windows 7 for it, but got tired of dealing with Windows being a hog, and that damn A/V software you have to run for Windows.

BigJim 05-08-2012 09:09 PM

Man, it is good to see your smiling face again, sorry you had all the problems, hopefully you are good to go now.

creeper 05-08-2012 09:11 PM

Jim..There you are ! Speaking of smiling faces, you've been laying low too. We missed you too! Or are you still recovering from your hot pepper episode

Welcome back.

Come on now, Mike. You can't be a super moderator and not have a back up pc. :)

Glad you're back.

Hey Jan, no I have been checking in briefly, I have been trying to get the shop cleaned and straightened up, it is a total mess to say the least and I am slower than molasses in February.

Good to see you're back on line! :)
Let us know what you think about Windows 7!!!
We're thinking about upgrading to "7".

(Hey - how come I get last-placed, "billing" in the list of "special thanks"!!?? -
don't you remember, a long time ago - I advised you "safe computer" - don't go on the
Internet - don't turn it on!!) :)
He, he, he! :)

Jan, I forgot about the Habanero pepper, it was pretty hot but nowhere as hot as I thought it would be, I ate the whole pepper, I think I got a wimp pepper. I did dread the next day but no problem there either, probably the next one will light my lamp.

Rossi, I have fooled with 7 quite a bit and it is good compared to Vista, Vista is garbage to me. Once a person gets use to 7 it will be fine. I found it was a little hard to find some things like on the control panel and a couple of other places. Hopefully 8 will be better, they should come out with an XP Pro Classic, it would sell like hot cakes.

I've been using 7 since August. Its much better than vista.

(hey- how come I get third-place, billing in the list of "special thanks!??
Don't you remember , a long time ago- I told you that.....:wink:)

May I suggest your revised buddy list go in alphabetical order

oh'mike 05-09-2012 06:33 PM

Every one was good to me---regardless of the order---And spell check is back---

creeper 05-09-2012 06:38 PM

Hey Rossi,
Some guys are so serious

If spell check is back how come the system didn't pick up every one.....

Am I picking on you?

rossfingal 05-09-2012 07:05 PM

Well -
--M--
Since your "considerations" have not been forth coming!
(I thought the agreement was - "cash" - non-sequential, numbered,
bills - "My size is "100" - my color is "green"!)

I'll have to divulge the real reason for your absence -
computer problems!?!!!
Hah!
How were the drinks and the palatial, sandy beaches down in the
Carribbean!?! (SP?)
(Any excuse to get away from this place!) :)

(I hope you do have a "twinge" of guilt - for leaving "DM" and the rest of
the "Mods", here - to deal with us!!)

Cordially yours:
"RF"

(Serious? - Serious?!! - You can't handle "Serious!!!) :)
