Well the old computer died, may it rest in peace. Actually I may be ablt to salvage it by getting a restore disc from acer. My operating system partition was destroyed and I need to reload vista and set up a new partition. No matter, we were able to retrieve the photos on the computer and that was are only concern. I picked up an I.B.M. thinkpad and got it hooked up this moning. I hope you didn't miss me too much

James - I post on eight pc tech sites each day. (mod and or admin 5 of em)

The one I linked to above is by far my favorite. The average age of the members and site staff is 40+ years old. You can get some pretty serious help for some pretty serious issues...

Hey Everyone,
Especially Tony, Dale, Walt, David, Di, James, and David, as well as all you other new people and people my small pea of a brain cant seem to remember. I am so lousy at names. How is pete doing. How is everyone. Tony you really should come snowmobiling. I myself am in limbo. I dont know if going off of the casodex is having any affect on the dreaded psa. My Dr. cancelled my last appt. saying it was too early. I hate waiting. I dont want to have pca. I want to be normal. Todd
