Talking Computer died, no OSO for two days.

Our computer died Monday night. One of my buddies down here is a coputer guru and with his help and the fact my wife has an account at Best Buy, he steered us into a new state of the art "high performance" machine. Feels like it's got twin 1450 Sterlings compared to the old machine. I was in OSO when it went never to come back up. All I got on the screen was "No Signal Input".

Two days without OSO. I was shaking uncontrollably, high fever, ranting and raving like a madman. Drove my wife nuts. Probably the only reason she replaced it was to shut me up. IT WORKED..... This new machine is incredible. It even has a Digital Camera program preinstalled, looks like I'll finally be able to start using our digital camera. Our old computer was bought by Deb in 98 and did not have the technology to use the camera. Now I just gotta figure out how to use it.

I'M BAAAACCCCKKKKK.................................... ......

Was wondering were you went. Welcome back. What kind of PC did you get?

Not that this makes much sense to me but:
E Machine Model T3092
512 MB memory (I think that's what that means)
160 GB hard drive at 7200 rpm (see, I got some boat talk into this)
Five USB 2.0 ports with digital camera program installed.
System memory 2 GB
Video memory 64MB

And two pages of stuff I have no clue what it means. All I know, from what I was used to, this thing is friggin fast. Click, I'm there, click I'm there.

My buddy said it was a "no name brand" machine with all the high performance stuff inside. This thing flies.

Thanks Fred,

Happy to say my health is getting back to, probably back to about 85%.
Was finally able to start working a little last week. Now just got to catch up on everything.
Any "Suthphen news"?

I had someone make me a computer also. That and a 786 Cable Modem and this thing is on fire. It is so fast I will be able to see 1,000,000 times more boobs than if I had dial up and a Tandy 100 I know little about this thing but I have even less patience so speed is a must I was without OSO for a time once.....once. Now I have emergency back up just in case. It's a sickness you know.

OSO addiction can get ugly. "If you don't get help from Charter - please, get help somewhere."
