Re: My PC is dying

Hey . .. . it's a free market thing. The supply of JG must equal the demand for JG. Ohterwise, he wouldn't exist. Is this not right?

Re: My PC is dying

If I may ask 2 questions JG.
1. How old is your PC?
2. Has your PC ever been reformated?

Now if you're thinking of going the route of a new Dell, (very good brand) then you don't need to answer.

To clarify, Az has posted things frequently about not suffering from ill health, and my response to his "Day before I die, be on top of my game" comment was really an honest (although annoyed) question. Just how is it he plans to do that?

My mother said the same thing for years, but she wound up hospitalized and unhappy for many months. But not sick enough that we could pull any plugs without being charged with murder.

I've always (46 y.o. now) been in very good health, and taken care of myself. Nonetheless I developed an autoimmune condition that can (but didn't (yet) in my case) paralize people literally overnight. With no warning.

So I guess I take it a little bit too personally when AZ seems confident, to the point of arrogance, that he is going to avoid all the pitfalls of life that we mortals are prone to.

Hope that explains that I'm not really the heartless witch my comment may have made me out to be.

As they say Sheryl, No worries M8T. I'm still not up on who's who, and who can get away with what, and so on, and so on. I've got so much to learn, even when it comes to chatting on this forum, or any forum for that matter.

PS. heartless witch never even entered my mind.

Don't mind answering (keeps my post count up)

1. 5 years

2. Not sure but I think so.

BTW, I have told my friends to stop sending me e-mail. It appears that
may be the main source of trouble (long story). I can live without this
"infernal tool of Satan", and I may in the future.

Looks like pilot error to me. Expect the library PC's to suffer soon as well.

Re: My PC is dying

Hey........I found a guy nearby who specializes in digging out
spyware, hackers, identity thieves, etc. I drop the CPU off on Monday
so there might be a small drop-off in my posting while he investigates.
When I announced I was going computerless, the people around here were
suffering with JG withdrawal. It seems I am not the only human who loves my stuff. Anyway, one last exorcism. If it fails, I will consign it to Satan for good.

Thanks for the tip. Bought a used MAC once. Never got around to using it.
Think my daughter got it.

I am back in business but not 100%. The tech guy said it was
loaded with spyware and other funky stuff. Lots of files corrupted, etc.
Anyway, he worked fast and cheap so I will use him again if I decide
to continue on. TBC................

Maybe next time (and with your professed level of computer knowledge/skills I'm pretty sure there will be a next time soon) he could teach you how to use a scanner.

Unless, of course, he's a MENSA member.

Re: My PC is dying

Gosh I just love my own stuff (as long as it really is my own stuff).
Every keystroke leads the reader into wisdom/enlightenment
(or at least a "What the hell is he talking about?" or maybe,
"Oh no. There he goes again!") You , OTOH are mostly a run-on blowhard
who (apparently) has not had an original thought in years. It's okay though. Can't see how you can do much damage at this point in your
"career".

Re: My PC is dying

Made a decision. I'm going to the library for internet use from now on. Had this machine
in 4 times to 2 different guys and it is still screwed up.
I truly believe this is a good thing (a little Martha Stewart lingo) .
One less thing to maintain and it will free up a lot of time for other stuff which I have been neglecting.

Semper Fi.
