Subject:    Windows 7

I have reached the point with restoring my programs that I am able to 
return to editing SHAKSPER digests and distributing them to the members. 
Sorry again for the interruption.

One consequence of my recent adventure is that I have become, in the 
past few weeks, intimately knowledgeable of Windows 7, having recovered 
from more kinds of difficulties than I could have imagined possible.

To dwell upon the positive side of my most recent adventure, however, I 
would like to offer my now considerable knowledge of this operating 
system with any member needing assistance installing, configuring, or 
repairing newly upgraded Windows 7 computers. I am amazed at how many 
obstacles I have overcome and rather than just letting this knowledge go 
to waste I am making this offer.

As I worked through the more than 5,000 messages (mostly related to 
SPAMs sent to the list) I came across an email in which someone wisely 
suggested I get a Mac. I would love to, but there is that nagging issue 
of my having PCs and PC software since the early 1980s and also that I 
just had a new roof put on with the work being completed today. 
Nevertheless, I priced a Mac Pro with a configuration similar to the one 
I have on the PC I built last year, and even if I were able to get an 
educational discount now that I am retired, I would be looking at a Mac 
that cost just about as much as my new roof. Alas, maybe in another 
lifetime or after I incorporate and start accepting contributions.

Hardy
