Temmu, that little start button has made such a difference - less aggravation and frustration.  Thanks! :thumbsup:

Thanks!  I'll give it a shot later today after the coffee kicks in. 

I purchased a new desktop computer a few months ago and Windows 8 was on it.  I'm one of the 90% who hate it.

Looks pretty complicated to me!  I just resigned myself to being "cableless" and sat in my car to charge my cell phone (after the storm had finally passed).

I'm in the Hampton Roads area (Norfolk/Portsmouth, VA).  Personally, I lost some big branches and a few roof shingles.  My power and cable (landline, tv,internet) went out Saturday around 2:00 pm but came on around midnight last night.  The Outer Banks of NC (around 1 1/2 - 2 hours from here) were torn up - my son was planning on camping on Hatteras Island over the weekend but they went to one of the guys' cottages in Kitty Hawk.  They left there (thank goodness) Friday evening.  Hatteras is completely cut off - I think the only road in and out has been cut in 5(?) places.  It looks like the folks up north are dealing with some major flooding.   Hope everyone out there stays safe.

I checked the Internal Build of AAW as suggested in the latest AAW update notice in "Software Updates".  My build was 120 not 122.  After updating, the build didn't update so I uninstalled AAW, redownloaded it from the Lavasoft site which redirected me to and now the Internal Build is 55 (after "updating").  Any clue on where to download Build 122?

If you wish to contact them, here is some info:

Thanks, but that's OK!  I don't usually read my spam but this one caught my eye.  I'm just wondering what the point of it is.  A new twist on the Nigerian scam?  (I'm sure that responders wouldn't be expected to use their own bank accounts to organize the financial flow of the company!! :shock:)

LandzDown Lounge / Re: Life Saving idea - ICE in your 'phone ...
« on: August 01, 2005, 07:38:21 AM »
There was an article in our local newspaper a couple of days ago about this.  Our "emergency officials" (for lack of being able to think of a better word) were asking people to program an ICE number into their cell phones.  I guess that answers the question of "If I program the number, will anyone know to look for it in an emergency?" (at least locally).

Had one that was black once after an old girlfriend socked me in it for cheating on her.

Did anyone else have a "corner store"?

Yes!  Fountain cokes were a nickel.  And remember the candy necklaces and the wax coke bottles that had that nasty sugary liquid in them and then you chewed the wax.  Ugh!

Thanks, H.  You probably knew you'd be helping me with something when you saw I had showed up.  I remember the old days - I could always count on your patience to walk me through things.  Thanks again, everyone.  It's great to be back in such a friendly place with all the old familiar faces.
