New Computer Installed --

Well as of today I am writing this post on a new computer. Nothing special, just the least expensive "desktop" computer from STAPLES . . . an Acer Aspire with Windows 7 (instead of PCLinuxDOS I previously had). I don't need "bells and whistles" since I do my gaming on the table top and not on the computer.

In some respects it is a welcome change since our new cable connection didn't work well for the Linux machine . . . and in others it can be quite frustrating since it is years since I had to try to figure out a Microsoft product . . . and I've screamed some "bad words" more than a few times.

Anyway, just one more reminder that my old "uniserve" email account is defunct . . . if you wish to email me, use . . . for example, if you want to get your 18th century Imagi-Nation added to the "Emperor vs Elector" group blog.

However I fear that you are likely to hear some more "bad words" coming from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada if you listen carefully. Please forgive me.

Good luck with the new computer - and I'm glad to hear you're on the mend. Having the energy to swear at the computer is a good sign. ;-)

I agree with David. Long may the Blue Bear reign!

You can always start your own chapter of Luddites International. That will give you carte blanche to swear at computers anytime you desire.



Having tempremental machines myself, I wish you better luck than I have. Why don't you start an EvE Chapter of Luddites International for all of us to join you in some choice blue sailors and soldiers language, @#$@#%$# machines.

Cussing sounds more formidible in good old Deutsche ....
good luck, I'm afraid I'll have to fire up a new confuser too.
Very, very sorry to hear about your fall. Sounds scary as well as painful. I'm always grousing with my doctor ... I want a pain med that treats just the injury and doesn't zombify the rest of me!
Good luck!

I know where you're coming from...I feel lucky to be the proud owner of a Mac, which is pretty user-friendly, but with my level of computer knowledge I still get pretty frustrated. My kids can't understand it - 'it's no use shouting at it Dad'!

Best wishes, Keith Flint.
