Charles, I think it's great that you have the know-how to build and upgrade on your own. And I think your definition of "pregnet" is great. LOL.:)

Skunk, re your #3, I like that, too. I don't know HOW it works, but I'm always happy that it does. Re #7, I do believe there might be some G-rated cams out there. Hey, if you haven't crashed since '94, you're doing something right.:)

Large screens are great, aren't they, Bilbo? I've never used a Mac, but in light of all the glitches inherent in Windows, I'm tempted to switch next time I buy. Wonderful definitons today!:)

I have 2 great laptops, VE, and a desktop which I hadn't even turned on in God knows how long 'til the other night when I needed to convert some Word docs to WordPerfect. I'm itching to get a BlackBerry, too. Regarding WordPerfect, yep, they do still make it. That's what the computers in my new workplace are running (version 12). Personally, I find Word far superior.:)

You have very colorful computers, /t. Now that I've seen pink and red laptops, I need to have one of those, too. LOL. You've been upgrading the same machine since 1978?! Wow! Hey, you should have tackled the wacky words anyway; a number of different interpretations is always desirable. And you've NEVER been inadequate.:)

I like silver in a computer, Kan. My laptops are silver and black. I've heard about that free open source word. How do you like it? And ... have you tried Google Docs? Re #10, oh, Lord, yes! One NEVER wants to piss off the Crash gods. I love your Wild Word interpretations today; too funny!

Job update for you: Yesterday, I was NOT impressed. I was left to my own devices, working alone in the boss's office no less, with a stack of files 2 feet high to wade through and attempt to figure out what pleadings or other work was needed. I had a "system" to figure out on my own. I've never worked with a "system" before. I was so busy that the time flew by, with no breaks, food, or cigarette.

Today, however, the difference was night and day. I mastered the damned "system" yesterday, so today I knew what I was doing and got my work finished with plenty of time to spare for a cigarette, food, and goofing off with the front office girl. Today, I had FUN. I'm going to like this job, even if I did have to go back in after work and get the boss to come out and move her Jag so I wouldn't back into it. LOL.:)
