Yay! Did you just get a new machine, Jagi? If so, I hope it's earmarked for you. :)

Kind of the other way around. We bought the kids a used computer from the guys we go to for computer support. Now John and I have our work computer back and the kids have one they can play on. (We had a nice video card put in, so they can play Spore and stuff.)

It's really a relief, though, there's been so many times in the last six months I would have been at the computer if they hadn't been here...but I hated to kick them off. If all goes well, they'll have two computers soon...a friend's donating another one. That will be even better. One for the four of them is a bit hard.

I'm so glad things got worked out! I'm sorry I didn't have any input to help; I depend on our son for all electronic assistance.

No prob! Discovering after twenty minutes of help from the lady from Cox that the ethernet cable on the first computer was not plugged in was the worst. Everything else worked itself out.

I used to be a help desk/system administrator tech. But it was a while ago. So, some stuff I knew carried over and some just misled me. ;-)

You should try to administer such shocks more gently.

Do you chat over the Internet like I do with other people in the same house? I always find that amusing.

We haven't yet...but we might. ;-) I just got another computer up, too. This one with some stuff in Chinese. (I can't seem to figure out how to change it all to Chinese.) The third computer has a few bugs. I haven't gotten the speakers working and my daughter doesn't like the monitor, but those things can be fixed...I hope...eventually.
