My husband was my IT guy. Since he died, my computers seem to be grieving. After searching for some sites that didn't either want to download garbage to my computer or sell me that ONE perfect program, I found BleepingComputer. Which seems to be what I say daily...without the bleep

We have lots of winter here. We'll meet or beat any price and, as always, free shipping!

 

Welcome to BC!

Thanks, but we felt really generous this year. When that monsoon/cyclone whatever it was hit Alaska a couple of months ago (it's only called "high winds" here, even if its 150 mph. Or in Juneau, that is called Taku wind.) Anyway, that wind offered to send all the cold stuff down to you guys in the lower part of the world. We said "sure," and "happy holidays" etc. And its going to be an el nino couple of years so by then we will be growing bananas. Good think we don't believe in no stinking climate change up here! 

 

BTW, it NEVER free shipping to Alaska. Unless it's from Crutchfield.

What I wouldn't give to be back in Craig.

Welcome from sunny and extremely dry California.  When PC World closed their forums to all but subscribers, BC was recommended and has become just as helpful without the politics.  I have traveled the west coast from Mexico to Alaska can can remember some strange occurences.  One was in March while the corporate managers of the company I worked for had their annual meeting in Miami, a cold wave hit and frost warnings were issued while I left for Kenai and the off-shore oil rigs and found 72 degrees.  Many snears were issued when I returned with a suntan after a week.  I have also been to Prudhoe Bay in the dead of winter,  55 degrees below zero and a 25 mile an hour wind.  Close to a minus 120 below zero windchill.  Returned to Anchorage after 6 days and walked on the airport apron, 32 degrees snowing and I was sweating in just a t-shirt.  Really messed up my metabolism for a week afterwards.
