If I said it, I mean it!!! the iPad will be such a wonderful tool for me to help reach and/or train others!!!
The lessons will be available, they will be showable through the projector, and I'll even be able to edit the documents with it!

~ What does God want with me? ~
What does God want with me?
I know he wants all of me, and I'm taking advantage of any opportunity I have to learn more. Get this: I'm even reading and studying the Bible. For real! I've been all the way through the New Testament in the past few months, and am working on the Old. What's different? Read more!

~ Why did I quit fixing computers? ~
I'd have to answer that one, folks, with a "bunch of reasons":
Mostly moving on and lack of time. Wanna know more? then click on "more"! duh!

~ Updated Thoughts on being Half-An-Orphan ~
"Time changes everything."
"Everything is subject to change."
"Change is a part of life."
"If you don't like the way things are going, wait: it will change."
Other than still missing Mom and the dreams she is in and the wanting to call and share with her the little details only she ever cared about, the rest is getting better.

~ No More Viruses ~
There are four ways to avoid viruses that are better even than free AVG with Spybot Search & Destroy combo I have recommended (and still recommend highly).
1. Use a Mac. While expensive, it will save you in the long run from service calls and/or reloading your operating system.
2. Use Linux. From this point forward, for people who are casual computer users or internet only, and who already have a PC, I will be recommending a Linux install, either to replace current OS or to dual boot for internet usage. (yes it has become that user-friendly)
3. Browse in a sandbox. Why it took me so long to discover a free app to do this, I don't know, but allow me in the (more) section to introduce you to it.
4. Use Vista. This is a trick answer. You must use the Guest account on Vista. Whatever you do on that logon will be erased and the account will reappear brand new and unused when you login to it again!

~ Ubuntu and Flash... ~
No, I'm not a Linux expert. Just wanted a small footprint without annoying viruses, etc. for hubby's machine. Linux dudes sent me to Ubuntu, which is quite nice, but flash would not install. With the help of guru Phil, I found my way around and discovered the problem......

~ Thoughts on being Half-An-Orphan ~
I'm getting a handle, sorta, on all of the mixed feelings that go with becoming half-an-orphan. Things have changed, some for better, some for worse, some just changed.....

~ Mom is leaving... ~
Yes, I anticipate this may be Mom's last day here. I told her I'd see her in the morning, which many will recognize as part of a song...... just about dawning.......

~ Acer system reboots restarts? ~
So, not being smart as the smartest bear, but smarter than the average bear, we followed through on the constant reboot problem peculiar to Acer machines here in February 2009. We got the fix!!!!!

~ The Class Reunion ~
I had seen none of these people since 1968. None of them. I had talked to one by phone 20 years ago, and had brief contact email with a few (less brief with some lately as we planned the reunion).
What a strange feeling to step back into the past and be recognized and recognize those classmates in return!

~ Whew! and Vista SP1 ~
Okay, then.... I'm recovering from a long long month, looking forward to a CA visit, and spreading the word on Vista SP1 support.
Front page item is the CA visit.... a week with the grandkids for a 2nd birthday and Thanksgiving. It'll be grand! (that's why I'm a grand-mother, huh?)
