JJ tells me his computer fan is making noise - I wonder why - so he'll be off the wire for a few days. If you need him, give him a call.

His ancient computer is qualified for landmark status as it has been sitting there since Leadfoot Lizzie graduated from elementary school (Really!) and she is now in grad school. You can have a leisurely lunch while the thing boots up. Come on, JJ, dump that POS and get something decent!

Last night I was explaining that it would probably be hard to find the part. I was really hoping that he wouldn't find it and I could talk him into getting a mac, then we would have one cord and not 100 cords under the computer desk to sort through. I offered him my laptop while he waits for the part. He turned me down and said he would have to remember his log ins and essentially it would be a bigger pain to try and figure out my laptop then wait.   :doh: The computer we have is geriatric and ancient almost like him. :mr47_04:  So who is going to stick up for me after I post this or find me a place to live? I might not have a home or support after he reads this  :innocent:

Now, you would think that with all the "hot air" Jim blows that, if he directed the flow into his 'puter' that a lot of that dusty junk would be blown away thereby cleaning up the inside of his POS that he calls a computer. Ha, ha. :innocent:

Okay, I'm back! :yahoo:  

For how long I don't know as the fan that I installed is making almost as much noise as the one it replaced.  Did manage to find the exact duplicate fan to replace the one the crapped out and ordered it.  Hopefully be here next week before this one pukes. :bad:  

What I want to know is how DD got pictures of what the inside of the computer looked like when I opened it up?   :ohmy: All will be better some time next week and in the mean time I have a few hundred e-mails to delete and/or go through.  

And really, what's the deal about being critical of this fine computer? :diablo:   It's only nine years old and I hardly have my money's worth out of it yet!

I've been feeding them just fine.  

And actually the noise that the machine makes is being reported to me by the rest of the family as I don't hear a thing.  Even with the hearing aids turned up full you don't get everything that's going on around you.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Actually it's really wonderful at night when I go to bed.  Take the hearing aids out of my ears and the world comes to an end.  With the wife's snoring I would have to sleep in another room otherwise.

I found a new PC for Jeweler Jim that is SASS-legal. Below is a picture of it with a member of the Geek Squad who will be training JJ.
