As I have no respect

for political correctness and ignore it daily, I'm simply going to say;

A very Happy Christmas to everyone I've had discussions with and to many others who's posts I have read and found interesting (sometimes fascinating). Not forgetting the TR writers and staff.

Thanks to TR for hosting us and may you all have a peaceful, contented and healthy New Year.

My very best wishes to you all.

ps: Love your post HAL 9000!

Thanks for the loot, Sonja, I finally made it up to my mailbox.

I've been sojourning in South Carolina (against Charlie P.'s advice) for a few months. Fuzzick and Gypsy both went back to the Universe since then, at the hand of loose neighborhood dogs. I'm raising Gypsy's 2 7-toed kids, now. I considered crossbow retribution, but the dogs.....well, they were just being dogs. ("Forgive them; they know not what they do", as a Protagonist once quipped).
Having had the experience of shopping for a laptop recently, I wanted to report how difficult it was to find a new machine with W7 amidst the retail push for "8-on-everything-whether-you-want-it-or-not". I guess I'll keep looking for a relevant Discussion, or perhaps start one over by the WC (where no one will read it). Happy 14th baktun, all; let's try and do better *this* time!!!

But I did! I did!

by hippiekarl In reply to You've been in SC?

And, of course, I had no idea where any of my SC pals *were* at the time; I just held down the hi-way horn from Rock Hill on. Cops made me knock it off around Leesburg-Batesville (or is it Leesville-Batesburg? I can't keep them straight). That was me.....
An old co-conspirator from NYC in the 80s saw me on YouTube and got in touch ("I'm right by Aiken, where the Chlorine train derailed [remember?!]; why not come down and visit/catch up/play some music?"). I've been happily installing pots w/ tiny PC boards into guitars, to alter their sonic range....good times.
"I love the smell of solder in the morning---it smells like........Retirement."

It's Batesburg-Leesville, for what it's worth

by NickNielsen In reply to But I did! I did!

So you're there, eh? I'll be at the Kroger in Aiken about 4 this afternoon. Come on by!

Pine Log and Whiskey? See ya there!

I'll stand outside and ogle the moms (look for Aqualung in a 'Fender' baseball hat)....

Hmmm... How am I going to keep this up?

by JJFitz In reply to TR Community scoreboard f ...

My daughter is back from college for her winter vacation and my main desktop is in her room. Yeah, I appropriated her room. I didn't turn it into a den though.
How am I going to keep the TechRepublic posting up without my desktop?
I'll have to dig out another computer. Maybe I'll fire up my Linux laptop and see how the other half lives.
By the way, my daughter came home with her laptop with a broken screen. (Thank goodness for the pc insurance!) so she's using my desktop with (gasp!) Windows 8 for her very first time. I did an experiment with her. I did not give her any instruction about using the OS. I didn't even tell her it was Windows 8. The result? She is doing fine. She has not once asked for any help using the machine.
The only difficulty she ran into was figuring out how to shut it down which she said she solved in less than 5 minutes by googling "how to shut down Windows 8". Well... would you look at that?!
No screaming. No gnashing of teeth.
