I'm going to be very short winded tonight for once.  My E-Machine came back today.  A little scary.  I just Fed-Ex'd it last Wednesday.  I tracked it.  It was received Friday and sent out Monday from Gateway at 4 p.m.

It's my same old one....the motherboard was replaced.  I haven't gotten it set up yet because I'm just too tired to mess with installing AOL and moving all my documents from my back up drive intothe E-Machine.  It took me all evening to get this one I'm using now up and running when I got it.  Yikes, I have to reinstall my PSP program. 

I'm tempted to keep using this one but I do have a three year warranty on the E-Machine so I might as well beat it to death.

I've spent most of this evening copying things to my external drive preparing for tomorrow.  The only thing I can't figure out if I can move or not is the fonts I've installed; doesn't seem so.  Lordy, I have to have my fonts...lol...or I'll be begging my PSP group to send them again.

I've gotten quite a few tag requests so I wanted to get them made in case I need a day or two to recollect some stuff.

It's almost 11 and I'm whooped.  I know, for one thing, I am not going to like the resolution on my E-Machine.  The color and graphics are so sharp on this one.  This one has to go to Pitt and get the Windows freezing problem solved.  Everything else has been worked out.

Nite all...I'll be around to visit tomorrow, I hope, barring any unforeseen problems.....

awesome people are asking for tag requests, Chris. They like you, they really do (remember Sally Fields at the Oscars many years back?) You do great work. Hope you get everything working the way you want

Well, you might be able to save all those fonts on a disk.  I don't think they take up much space....or drop them all in a folder on your desktop and zip it up....email it to yourself and download it in the new computer?? Just a thought.  Hope you get it all worked out and have a great weekend!  I really really want to go out tonight, hope my hunny will take me. : ) GBU, Shelly

you can save about 1/2 dozen to a floppy.. and add them in your new machine anytime (in the font folder)..  I did this recentlly so I know it works lol good luck!

Chris, I don`t know how you are keeping your patience with all these computer hassles! I hope it all gets worked out soon and stays that way!! I know you just want it all fixed so you can sit and relax and work on your PSP. Is that too much to ask? :0)
Your tags are wonderful... you have a talent there!
Love you,
Penny

Chris, Hummmmm, that is interesting.  They must have installed a different motherboard, or mayby they had to Flash the bios.  Everything being equal, you should see no difference. If reinstalling PSP is all you had to do, you are lucky. BTW, it takes about 20 minutes (MAX) to replace the motherboard.
Take care, David
