After three weeks of gnashing my teeth, my laptop is in a better place.  Somewhere in White Oaks if I remember.  I sold it…and lost $150 in the transaction.  A small price to pay to not kill someone (someone from Microsoft).  Actually, it wasn’t the software…it ended up being the stupid key board.  Stupid, stupid keyboard.  It couldn’t keep up…missed strokes all over the place.  So now it’s gone.  And I’m all alone…which is just like I like it.  Actually, I’m going to buy out my current laptop (3 years old) for about $350.  If it lasts another year or two…then it’s paid for itself.
