I won't go into details, but let me just say it had to do with two system restores and software re-installation, and the original problem still isn't fixed.
I love computers, really. I would not want to write my book out by hand umpteen times. It might make me chose my words more carefully, however.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could do our own personal system restore? I think about three years would do it. May 2007 would be a great time to start over.
