Ducked in to the forum to find out why PSI is so clunky to use. Thought I may as well say hi. It has been too long I suppose and you've forgotten me. I find it odd that I am still in the top 10 list. xD

I should surly apologize for my absence for such a long time. It is that life has had it's way with me. I'm in reasonably good health but tired in my bones (if you know what I mean). For those that were aware, I am still working with special needs persons. (If you weren't aware then you've learned something new!) There is not much labor involved but still leaves me bushed nonetheless. Special note: My Maggie is still with us! She is my little wiener dog. I don't know the exact date but she was born in the Springtime 20 years ago. Still gets around fine and is happy. Vision is going and there are aches and pains but that is to be expected.

I don't expect a famous return to the forum. Not that I would mind but I fear my input would not be relevant. I'm still on one of my old machines with XP. Perhaps I may buy a discounted computer with Win7, I've not made up my mind. Besides, I am so far out of touch with goings on that I would fear giving bad direction.

I will of course make a point to come back here and check this thread. Hopefully there will be no mean spirits here and that you will have compassion.

until then,
dill

Hello Fred,
Nice to hear from you. Have you changed your email address? I send the odd mail but no reply.

I will try another "tester" mail tomorrow to see what happens.

Should still be the same. I am always the odd ball. I suppose I should be more in the habit of checking my e-mail. I go there and delete everything about every 3 months. I just use it for access to on-line accounts that require an e-address. Rarely for communication.

Life got hectic for a bit and I got out of the habit of talking with you guys. I shall fix that. :)

Hello Fred......long time no see....but I havn't started blaming the optician nor my spectacles !
The Eye Centre near us has moved on !!
Just nice to "hear" from you mate......Havn't had anything from taffy in a little while....but I expect your post will stimulate a reaction or simply wake him up !
I know what you mean....bones....joints....but at least no arthritis in the fingers.....generosity with limited resources abounds !!
I'm out of touch with lots of things too....what to do when the Adobe's got muddy....no senility with Java.....but still at the latest with Chrome.....my Vista's still a goodie but oldie....I notice the Chromebook didn't get pwned.....that may be the way I'll go..
I did e mail you a couple of times....I remember life wasn't being particularly kind at the time....maybe you've still got my address as I seem to have mislaid your's.
Take good care mate....keep in touch.....best wishes....mogs......

Hey Mogsy - you woke me up!

Fred, young man - so glad to hear from you, that you're OK. Email on the way once I've sorted out this PC. XP - like yours - so I can't progress beyond IE8 which many forums are dropping so I'm looking for a new desktop.

Maurice has been very helpful - I wanted Win 7 rather than the blasted "drag your sticky fingers across my screen" Win * but he's linked me to a piece of software that makes your Win8 look like a Win7.

Then I find retailers no longer bundle eg Office in your PC. Looks like Microsoft is forcing us down the route to their Office 365. Pay 80 a year instead of a one-off purchase. I didn't like it at first but I think I'm warming to it. Any of you got it?

Anyroad, enough of my woes! It really is great to hear from you Fred, especially to see your what-I-hope-is a typo: "surly!!! I can't imagine you being surly! Mogs perhaps! (Only joking!)

PS I've tried and failed for three days to get into the forum via my desktop icon. It says loading, tells me I'm 100% and then goes to sleep. I'll check if anyone else has had this but I had to go via the Secunia Home Page

@taffy078

Surely you didn't mean to be so mean spirited towards Fred ?! I was thinking to show my generosity/kindness by being blind to his abject misdemeanor !!

How about some Bromium with your tea.....a path thro' the clouds of dithering purchacers ?
Or a short route to a virtual Altzheimeric environment ?! See what you think ?
It's only my hair that is grey ?!

apologies, Mogs, for thinking you were suggesting I take Bromide.

I've read that article - "thin-client computing", virtualisation et al - OMG. Doesn't it prove that out there in Microsoft and such-like there are programmers who aren't earning their fat salaries. Hackers can compromise so much nowadays that products such as Bromium are necessary. I'm still struggling with the decision "Office 365 or not?"

Apologies accepted....to think that you could think such a thing of me !!

I'm just wondering if Japanese old school was better in the long long run !! If heads aren't to rock 'n roll, fingers at least should be chastened/punished at an earlier age ? Are we going the wrong way.....is there any real protection for the worms, mites, and error getting into our youthful thinking ?! When it's Spring again....at max....forget about Amsterdam ?!
