Hi all,
I am Phil from Penfield, NY (near Rochester) and am looking for help with a laptop problem. I will post on the WIN-XP forum.
I am retired from 30+ years in (yeah this dates me) EDP thru IT. I was a PL/1 appl programmer and ran a mainframe data center. I have done DBMS-SQL programming as well as "C" on UNIX. I am not afraid of my PCs and am always trying to make them better. I do WEB surfing (w/ FF2.0) and email most of the time.
