Re: I've had the computer-in-the-shop blues.

That happeneed to me, back in 2015 iirc. My old Win 98 laptop finally crapped out after almost 12 years of owning it.. Had to get one with Win 8.1 on as that's all that was available (Or Win 10)..

Re: A Wild Star Wars discussion appeared!

Even still, I liked it better than The Force Awakens - because at least it wasn't a direct rehash of A New Hope. Same here. The reason I liked The Last Jedi so much is it broke the pattern that Star Wars always follows. Rey isn't the chosen one, she's a nobody. Luke isn't a sainted hero, it's a bro...

Re: It REALLY IS scary IMO

While the idea is somewhat conspiratorial - there was an idea floated around that the current generations of smartphones don't come with removable batteries (as opposed to the older generation and flip phones) is so that you cannot really ever turn the phone off. There is always power running throu...

Re: It REALLY IS scary IMO

Hi Matt, It took me awhile to warm up to "smart" phones also. I feel they have become something of a crutch to many folks in our society today. I used to find it amusing to see folks bent over their phones intently concentrating on whatever the "app" of the moment might be. Now ...

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Damn, Bro. Not sure how to respond to that. Sounds like he might be feeling a little more like himself, based on how you described him in the past. I told you the VA would be a good idea but I can tell you from personal experience they will not do DICK without his DD214. Well, his workmate's been w...

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Well, i spent thursday, friday and even yesterday trying to contact my brother, mostly to check in, see how he's doing. BUT all my calls, got a "sorry, but you cannot connect to this phone at this time" message, making me wonder what the hell was up. Finally had someone who went to see him...

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Glad to see you spoke with your brother. Was it MRSA he had? Yikes! Not sure. He didn't say... Though i'd laugh if it was, since when i was stationed in the UK twice, i heard many a story about people CONTRACTING it while staying in NHS hospitals! Like I said, lots of nutritional supplements out th...

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Well i finally spoke WITH my brother, after his leg surgery. Apparently, what the co-worker heard, about it being gangreen in his foot, was wrong. It was one of those flesh eating bacterias.. And he suffers from depression, which is why he's had issues taking care of himself. BUT now he knows and ha...

Re: Family woes.. Boo hiss..

Yes he was, but only for 18 mo before being booted out. And he doesn't have a copy OF his DD-214.. That's one of the forms that the IRS called me about, to try and help them locate..
