Back "On-line" with PCLinuxOS --
Well, that wasn't too bad. I've still got six CD and two "thumbs" worth of files to reload into my computer . . . but I am now up-and-running and MicroSoft-free!
Thanks to my friend Stuart, we were able to get my computer up-and-running on the PCLinux Operating System. I now have eMail again (although I lost all of my old emails) and can use my browser. There is still a lot to do, but those are, after all, the basics.
Also, I am completely unready for Sunday's game . . . I'll need to get busy.
