  1. BT desperately needs one. We're not all Apple fans, you know. Just my 2cents.
  2. LOL. I was just in the neighborhood and thought I'd drop in. I see the political climate hasn't changed much since I've been gone. (I'm on your side Pete C) . Nice to see everyone. Hope you're all well.
  4. Try substituting "Dick and Dubya". Still wouldn't be funny, but at least it would be factually accurate. :-)
  5. Sooooooooo sad. Seems like every time I check into BT another old friend has met the BIG BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!I will miss him lots.Many more from our generation will be departing early thanks to being poisoned by their government. But we will continue to fight for you, Marsh. History will not be swept under the rug. Your friend,Joe
  6. I wonder why they picked AZ State Cops? They are DEFINITELY not the NSA. Maybe an easy break in?

  10. It turns out that the "good" hard drive wasn't good at all. After installing it the PC would spin up for a few seconds and the shut off. I did a process of elimination: cables, CD-RW, Second HDD, etc. but it all let back to "good"HDD. As soon as I put a power supply cable to it, the PC shut down. Very strange. Seems like there's a short in the drive. So now on on plan C. Had another new WD 300 gig still in the box that I bought yeard ago and never used. Partitioned it into 2 drives. Put XP on the "C". Will do updates next, AV system, then try to tranfers data from bad Sata drive. Will keep yo
  11. Your call. I think ios devices are a completely different beast than Macs. And a whole lot more of ios in use than Macs.
  12. Thanks, Pete. I have heard of that. Might be worth a try. Btw, "new drive" turned out to be another problem. I'm posting the updated story.
