This is Bill, my friend and neighbour. On Friday afternoon his techie took his new computer back to the shop.

Do you get the impression that he is missing it?? :thumbsup:

:flowers: At least he has a good sense of humor about the situation.

BTW, Rob, I hadn't realized this before. Besides being on different sides of the international dateline, it seems that you folks down under are actually a whole year ahead of those of us who live topside! (Note timestamp on the pix.) :thumbsup:

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

The solution is to get 8 more computers - then you'll be less likely to be without one! (but, in my case, all 9 seem to break down at the same time and I've got to go to work to get online!)
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

- John  (my website: http://www.carrona.org/ )**If you need a more detailed explanation, please ask for it. I have the Knack. **  If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please send me a message. My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.

I have a solution to a missing compy.

There's a program in effect now until the 31th of December, 2007.

Give one. Get one.

One might pony up and give a child in the world a computer, and get one to just lay by for emergency use?
Or gift to another child?

!!!THIS IS NOT A SOLICITATION!!! authorized by the Bleeping Computer Forums.

Edited by KoanYorel, 24 November 2007 - 01:49 AM.
Updated program effective date

The only easy day was yesterday.

...some do, some don't; some will, some won't (WR)
