    Well Folks has it been a TOUGH 3 weeks!!!! To start off with My Mother who was 89 years Young got really sick and was in the hospital with double pneumonia and a bad UTI infection.well she fought it the best she could but to no avail and We lost her 2 weeks ago. and then we had family in from California,New York,the Dakotas,Missouri,Nebraska.and in the meantime I picked up a Worm in my computer and it took over and totally shut the Darn thing down.so I called Field support and talked to someone from India and Man it was like talking to someone from Outerspace,anyway he said he couldn't help me and said I needed to get in touch with HP who's computer I had, which I did and that rep. said I needed More memory and sold me 512 more megga bites what ever the heck that was 79.00 hello Sucker.That wasn't the problem I found out.Well what to do now? So I had a Friend that knew a little bit about computers come over and try and see what the problem was and after 2 nights no better.well I know I'll talk to the Geek Squad at Best Buy so I visit with this Guy who's name was Agent Dillion So I asked Him if He was any relation to Matt and If He Knew Miss. Kitty.No sense of Humor at All.Man Was that Kid UGLY 100% GEEK if you ask Me.Real tall and slender with a pencil neck and a Rat like looking face with a long nose.So he tells Me Yep I can fix it between 50.00 and a 100.00 bucks. so I says OK I'll bring that Bad Boy in which I did and when I get there he tell's Me that will be 63.00 to find out what's wrong I says alright and pay the money He says call Me tomorrow, which I did and he says yup You have a problem. Well OK Sherlock I diden't need to spend 63.00 to find that OUT, I Already Knew that!!! He says I can fix it for 239.00 dollars more.Well now I was born at night But Not Last Night.I Ask what happened to the 50.00 to 100.00 price he quoted me to start with? He said that's the Price so I says ok just give me My computer back and I'll go out in front of the Store and Pitch it through your Big Plate Glass Window.Well like I said the Kid had No sense of Humor at All and called the Manager over who Kindly ask Me to Exit the Facility which I Did.I guess I must be getting Old cause 20 years ago I would have had a copple Free nights lodging down at the county jail.Well now this is a Hell of a Mess. I told the Wife I'll just go Buy a new computer. Here now lays the problem that darn computer has 663 pictures of our grand children on it and I had better find Me a way of getting them off that computer cause it was most likley my Fault that the Computer cought that worm Because I spend to much time on Ebay buying fishing gear that I will Never use.Well now the Geek Squad is out of the Question.so at moms funeral I had the chance of meeting My nieces New Boy Friend who just happens to run the computer department at the university of Nebraska at Omaha.So I give Beth a call and explain My Delima and ask her if Nick could take a look at our computer She says No problem and brings him over and he gets into it and says yes You have picked up a worm and it came in through your IPS address and if I had had a Router on the darn thing the firewall would of stopped it. any way he said I will take it home and get you up and running. Man what a Smart Fella He brought it back this evening with the New memory installed and all cleaned up and hooked up the new router and saved all the pictures.The Wifes all happy now and life is back to Normal at the Straka household. I would like to thank all the Brothers Splitshot,JW,Cane pole and all the rest of My Friends Here at the BOC who were concerned and worried. Words can't start to explain what the BOC and all My Wonderful Friends here mean to Me!!!!! I Am Truly A LUCKY MAN. God BLESS All Of You.Your Friend and Brother.

    Dadgummit, there's nothing like having to deal with a pencil neck geek. Curse the geeks!!!! :smile2: That's funny, I've always wondered about the geek squad, I guess now I know.

    Sorry to hear of your loss there JD. Glad to see you back up and running though. Welcome back!!
