I'm Back, Baby!











Well, my laptop got zapped about a week ago, but I am back, baby! At least it seems like it, so far. A couple hundred dollars lighter in the pocket, but I got another laptop from the same Ebay listed company that I bought my first one from a year ago. Let's just say I was downloading at a site which had indicated that the site itself had been corrupted,and was a danger to download from; yet, being the man that I am, I chose to disregard the warning (you don't scare me!). Result, my operating system was zapped from my laptop, which I noticed a few hours later, when I went back to sign on again. I might try to sell that first one back to them at half price; but I've also been thinking of keeping it and installing Linux in it as the new operating system; Linux being essentially free, and with a very good reputation. Not that I know how to do that exactly, but I'm always up for learning something new, and I hear that with Linux, installation is relatively simple.

Now if I can just stop doing things that George would do, I should be ok.

I think you'd be ok anyway. George was. No matter how dumb or how much trouble he got into, he managed to be ok. Some way, some form....somehow.

Nappping under my desk; that's one George-ism that I haven't tried....yet.

George and I must be the long lost sons of Mr. Magoo, always skating disaster, barely.
