No, Cherry didn't cause my computer to malfunction. It did that all on its own. This AM it wouldn't restart. I tried every trick that I knew (I thought) and it still wouldn't fire up. One last thing! I unhooked it from the power source, then tried to start it back up - nothing!

I disconnected the power source and disconnected every cable coming in to the computer and went and read for an hour.

On my return, I started plugging in wires from the bottom up, with the last being the power cord. I pushed the On/Off button, and it started.

I started to record my breakfast, and it was 30 seconds between input via my keyboard and any reaction on the monitor. After the third move I tried, I shut Mozilla Down and ran my primary security system on a full scan. Cleaned and quarantined everything it recommended, then restarted FireFox and signed into Spark.

Response time may have been even slower, so I pulled out my emergency Search and Destroy tool and ran that. It found twice as much as Norton Security Suite found. I dumped everything it recommended. It also suggested I run Reg search. I did that and there were 46 register errors. I clicked on "Fix All" and it did its thing.

Closed down all those tools and re-started Firefox.

Everything was fine. But I didn't let that fool me. I backed everything up to an external hard drive, then backed my Music files to a 4GB San Disc and my Writing file to a 2GB San Disc and, though way behind, finally started getting things done.

Tomorrow morning I am going to Best Buy and I will get a much, Much, MUCH faster machine with a humongous video card and probably 500GB of memory. I probably won't use that much memory in my lifetime, so I will format it into 3 partitions - two 200GB partitions and one 100GB partition.

I'm not looking forward to it, but my Office Version is 2007 and won't do many of the things the new Office Version will do. I'll have to buy that, too.

When I get home I'll need to transfer any of my old programs I want to continue using from this computer to the new one, then load those programs information from the back-up.

I used to be able to completely transfer all the programs and files from an old computer to a new one in just a couple of hours. I'm probably going to need to cheat and read some of the instructions and partially learn some new code. Since programers ALWAYS use more and different code to do what one simple line used to do, I'm betting that Copy C:F: will only elicit a "You want me to do WHAT?"

OK, I'm 67, so this is probably my last computer or my second to last computer - unless there is some super breakthrough and a 4TB computer will be able to be wired directly into your nervous system in the relatively near future. At least that should help eliminate my short term memory lapses. To fix my long term memory lapses I will have to open a special file, record everything I can remember and when one of those AH HAH moments hit, have it automatically shunted into my new long term memory storage and automatically placed in a logical location within that memory chain.

Oops! It's past my bedtime. I don't want to turn into a frog.

Adio.... urp? emoticon

Actually, I am only the Belsnickel for a small town in Pa. Kibitz, located in the heart of Pa Dutch Country, which works out well as every Pa Dutchmen is a Kibitzer at heart.

Belsnickel - Timothy, I am pleased to meet you.

I visited both your Spark pages and you both appear to me to certainly be old enough to be so wise. Please don't judge me by my icon, the little girl is my youngest granddaughter.. My oldest granddaughter will be a senior in high school next year and her Dad will be rolling over the forty mark in nine days.

I'm finding it a bit difficult to believe I live in a universe where my sons can turn 40. A fellow by the name of Jack Benny told me you were only as old as you thought, and I've thought I was 39 for almost 30 years now.

I've found I have to accept "Aging" as one of those "Universal Truth" things. I know that I can't get around it, but there is at least one more 'Universal Truth' I have yet to experience.

Yep, just checked. What I'm thinking is going through my fingers and making indentations strong enough to make an impression on my computer screen.

Oh, Belsnickel. I hope you have recovered from your annual jaunt preceding your cousin. Did you get to pause for a moment while you were in Rio? I understand the view there this time of year is quite stimulating.

Sassy, I am sure it is pure coincidence that three males on the team (do we have more than three gentlemen?) posted consecutively. (Actually, we may still have one more. That chap, I seem to recall some form of rotund was in his name, made some disparaging remarks and I took him to task. Maybe not. I don't seem to remember completely thrashing him. He just disappeared).

What is not a coincidence is that we all posted on this subject. After all, 'Universal Truth' is a powerful draw.

As manly men, we are required by the bylaws of our Fraternity to ensure anything on the Universal level is properly handled, guided and sent on it's way to enlighten. Some who see the light will be elevated to Sarcastic, 3rd Class, and will then be able to learn about all the "Universal Truth's".

As those newly-made Sarcastics babies grow into their full powers as a Journeyperson Sarcastic, and as those Journeyperson Sarcastics that are destined to join those of us who are "Master Sarcastics", knowledge will be revealed that will allow us to reach promontories we can not even as yet see. The View, the View is the thing (and I don't mean "The View" that is on morning television - none of those 'persons' appear educated in such a manner as to even believe in the concept of we Sarcastics - Whoopie tries, but anyone can see that it's a stretch for her, and she's had ever so much time to practice with no discernible growth

So, "Moat it are"!

Popping in on a break from the long journey home. You guys are hilarious. Sitting in Dulles airport yesterday, I was struck by the stupidity I encountered and was going to blow my top until I realized how funny it actually was and made a game of identifying, ranking , and categorizing levels and types of behavior into Stupid, Insane, and Inane.

It probably spared me a stroke.

Duds, threads, "get ups" or outfits - you're look good, Mook!

WTH???

Three posts in a row from team members of the male persuasion? This has got to be a record for one of our threads!

(Sorry I stepped into the midst of our own personal Burning Man festival. Let me step out of the way so Partha can get his 'say' in.)

I have found everyone in the world to be some what incompetent. I am therefore fascinated at the tremendously wonderful things we have accomplished. Maybe, after all we do work well together.

Mooks, Mooks, Mooks. When I read the title I thought I was going to experience something indescribably Sarcastic.

Well, let me back up here. I recognized it as a Universal Truth. You presented it as a Universal truth.

But to the functionally illiterate or the non-Sarcastic, they would have missed the point completely which logically follows from your statement. If a non-Sarcastic runs into your universal truth,purely by accident. the non-sarcastic fails to understand which, therefore is the proof to the Universal Truth.

Brilliant!

And I echo SassyJay's comment about your new ski outfit.

Except as a guy I wouldn't have referred to it as an outfit. Guys don't do outfits.

I would say, "Mooks, those new ski duds are the cat's pajamas", or something equally guyish like "Dahh-ling. You just look Faab-ulous".

Actually, NOT. I just copied these sayings from somewhere. I thought they were ridiculous when I copied and saved them - and I still think that.

Mooks, your ski-duds? emoticon Seriously.

Popeye

PS: If we had an "Icon of the Month" contest, you'd win the award for the coolest.
