This is for my fellow model railroaders:
Why don't ants ever get sick??Flo said I could share, but she's tired of all of Mel's jokes. You'll have to tell a funny (and clean) joke if you want a donut hole!
Need it to store all of the food that I am not eating at home!Willie - You seem to be dining out a lot here recently? Are you sure you needed a new freezer?
Willie: The reason there is a next game is that the Stars held Tampa Off and won it in Double Overtime. (Full 20" periods during the playoffs).So I watched about five minutes at the end of the tied third period before heading for bed. I may actually have to watch the next game.
GT: Not for nothing, but it isn't that simple. I no longer have the interest in working with Unix based OS, but I have mostly circumvented the MS money grab. I use Corel WP office on all three PCs in the house...no subscriptions, and wrote my own Quatro Pro based Bank Register program to replace Quicken, when they went to annual subscriptions. Newest of the PCs is the one I'm using a 4 yr old HP Pavilion. Wife's Dell is five years old, and there is a ASUS, we bought for the MIL that she refused to learn how to use it, that will probably be incorporated into my layout's DCC, to use with JMRI. All run WIN 10 with zero subscriptions. I back up to high capacity SD cards, rather than USB drives. There are two other candidates for the layout, a older Dell with WIN 10 Clean Install, and a Toshiba still running WIN7. The Toshiba also still has a working set of drivers and Software to allow use of all the features of my Canon MX 860 Printer. Coincidentally, I fired both the Toshiba and older Dell up today to see if they were worth keeping. The only issue with both is the keyboard is losing it's "touch" . A relatively cheap USB keyboard would solve the problem If I choose to go that route. Might actually work out better in the layout environment.Windows is targeted at people that need or want to use a computer , but don't know or want to know how to maintain one.
