I'm starting to wonder how easy it might be for me to move to a Pi, orot
arm device, with SSD storage, for my next incarnation. This PPro has been DAG>monolith of stability, but I'm starting to wonder how much longer that's go
Now that I think about it, I've got a system upgrade coming up for that
machine to get the operating system current again, too. I think you're DAG>supposed to have a crucifix for at least portions of that, according to the
That sounds a lot like what I saw. What I saw was probably a hilltop or
away, or likely I wouldn't be around to be talking about it, but it was eno

Speaking of CPR, I really need to get my CPR certification, if not full
Responder certification, valid and good in this state at some point.
Heh. I'm a resistor not a capacitor, Jim.
Unfortunately, with the law of entropy, sooner or later, in this life, everyone and everything is doomed to failure.
I'm ignoring the "upgrade to Windows 10" option on the main BBS
computer. I'm happy with Windows 7 32-bit, and have everything working
the way I want it. The original BBS computer wouldn't boot up in April,
and I haven't powered it up since then. I'm seriously considering
donating it to the local shop for parts. The other 2 laptops I have have
Windows XP Service Pack 3 on one of them, with the MagicJack (tm) line I
use for voice mail...and Windows Vista Home Basic, with the MagicJack
Plus (tm) on it that I use with a Us Robotics modem for faxes. I had
bought a used laptop from a fellow Sysop, with Windows 7 on it, but the
power adapter kept heating help too quickly. So, I'm just using that one
in an emergency.
Both of my strikes were indirect...at 3 and 16 years of age...but I
still got the severe shock...and both were in south Florida.
Lightning hit the tree, and it engulfed the house "in a red glow of fire", although the house itself did not catch fire. I had my hands on
the metal frame of the window, and moisture had condensed around it.
When the strike occurred, the surge, the metal, and the moisture gave me
a severe shock. I started screaming bloody murder, and for 10 years afterward, you couldn't take a flash picture of me, as I'd scream in terror from the "flash back"...no pun intended.
I closed the garage door, to change out of my wet clothes...and just as
I put my wet hand on the washing machine to steady myself, lightning hit the house again.
I took a CPR course from the local Red Cross chapter years ago, but my health won't let me do that anymore.
I might have to consider that as a tagline. <G>
I would be ignoring that, as well. Seven performed wonderfully whenever
used it on machines with enough resources. The main things that I've heard
about versions since then that I haven't liked are how much data it sends DAG>on user activities. I know that you can avoid portions of that by refusing
certain patches and the like, but it's just evil software, if you ask me. DAG>like XP a lot; it's a shame that it's not kept up any more.

That's incredible. You're a pretty lucky man, it appears.
Sorry to hear that. I've always thought that it's a great thing toknow,
