I haven't bought anything from them, but my hubby bought a bunch of XP machines recently for the university he works for.

Anyone who makes you sign on the dotted line is inherently untrustworthy.

Dave. You're still a merry prankster hiding behind a rough exterior. You might try to seem like a grumpy old bear. But in reality you're a loveable pussycat. Laughing LMAO! Bow Clap

I was speaking of Ken Kesey's Merry Pranksters who dropped acid, hung out with the Greatful Dead and the Hell's Angels and went around trying to drop the word "grok" into every sentence

Be careful Dave. You of all people should know better than to disagree with a Texan Lady. Me, I had to find out the hard way. Cool Wink NoNo

Update:

My ex has resurrected himself several times since I last posted only to be quickly killed off by government computer again. Last week he thought he'd taken care of it for good and then the next day I was sent another death notification. Today I called in to see what was what and the first person said he was definitely dead and was surprised to find out he wasn't, told me what steps to take but when I talked to next person, he was, in that computer system, alive again. So now he is only slightly dead. Smile

Miracle Max: He probably owes you money huh? I'll ask him.
Inigo Montoya: He's dead. He can't talk.
Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.
Inigo Montoya: What's that?
Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

Re: Vista
To quote a really cheesy pickup-line bastardization:

Once you go Mac, you don't go back!

Seriously, I used to be Windows-only, but I love my Mac laptop. I find Mac to be a lot more stable and user-friendly, and more and more programs are being made for the Mac. I have been using this Mac for about three or four years now and haven't had many problems at all.

As for the rest...wow, gilly, I didn't know any of that about your family. I can't believe it, you must be incredibly strong to deal with all of it.

I get those jokes all the time!

As for dealing with govt red tape...I don't know about the military, but I am getting Social Security disability benefits and had to deal with that. It was *not* fun, I'm surprised I didn't have to appeal. I actually had an agency help me, so I didn't have to see all of it, but there were two things I thought were stupid.

1) They had to ask the same questions over and over again, stuff like my doctors' names and addresses; and

2) I was born in Guam, but they did not have Guam on their list of US territories despite the fact that it has been a US possession for more than a hundred years...they initially considered me a foreign birth. I've had that before, when I had to get my birth certificate to get my marriage license. I've had my citizenship questioned other times, but that's neither here nor there. They finally found something slightly related, Pacific Trust Territories, which isn't quite accurate but at least they recognized that Guam wasn't a separate country! I ended up going to the local office and showing them my birth certificate, but I just thought it was silly that our government didn't know its own territories.

Love you avatar Beautiful Dreamer, Smile

And you are right it is odd and sad that a government office did not know its own territories, I have know Guam was a US possession since I was ten years old. Rolling Eyes

Thanks! Have you seen the Happy California Cow commercials? I love those!

I've heard of people not knowing Puerto Rico was a US possesson as well. That's just weird, since it's *right there*...I've also heard of people thinking that the Bahamas *is* a US possession. Hmmm, I guess they don't teach this in school. Oh well, I'm starting to feel old now. Smile

I am a Navy brat, but we left Guam when I was a baby. I still want to visit, but then I want to go all over the world...
