A HUGE THANKS FOR MIKE C AND ALSO FOR THE PRIVATE E MAIL FROM MIKE M
(exiled in Brookings--one of the most beautiful spots in the nation and for kite flying) for all the good advice and help for my own sun damaged brain cells and my overstuffed Dell from Hell puter's loss of virtual memory.
Good idea Mike C about keeping my "reduced sized screen saver photos" in its own folder on my WD external hard drive.
My wife mentioned a few minutes ago..that Costco has an HP 1G with 6 memory desktop computer (without monitor) for $449.
If it wasn't for my damaged 401-K which suddenly -since last week...has turned into a -ONONE-K I would replace this old Dell 310 with Windows XP media edition..in a heartbeat.
Windows 7? (is it much betta' bugga' than my Windows XP?)
not to vurrrry' at the moment...AGAIN MIKE N MIKE!!! FOR ALL THE PUTER' HELP!
(I TRIED CALLING DELL AND COMCAST FIRST...but as usual, on hold forever...and then the line from India put me on hold...must have been my old Akansas accent was too much HELL for these far away across the world host of helpers to deal with?
