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.
