If it had been a Windows ME machine, I would have defriended you to avoid catching the network-based cooties.

And to think you tease me for hanging onto Win2K . . .

(Retirement date for this machine: June 16, 2008.)

Because on December 16, 2007, Dione declared that we'll have a new computer within six months, so I have six months to back up everything I need, etc. because six months from them, the plug was getting pulled.

So it has nothing to do with my 46th birthday, then.

Of course, that's mostly because a consumer has no business running W2K. It's a business OS... Glad to see there is a retirement date though.

Except, I *WAS* running a home business for a while with it--freelance writing.

Also, I got it from zarchasmpgmr, so you can direct your complaint about it to him. :-)

Yeah. :-D

When I was young, we didn't have GUIs or graphics or any of those crutches. We had command lines!!! With operands! And we had to memorize them!!

AND GET OFF MY LAWN!

Geez, you better run your internal anti-virus. Who knows what you pick up even with just casual touching. :-)
