My Computers are going nuts again, so haven't been able to do the chat thing lately. I really want to - so give me time!

First issue was my "#5 Workstation" decided to lock up in Netscape - then became FUBAR!

Next issue was trying to log into the chat area on "#6 Workstation", only to find out that Java was incompatable.
Downloaded HUGE Java app, but wanted to get "#5" running before installing Java on "#6".

Third issue: Day before bringing "#5" to life, "#6" decides to toss Blue Screens at me!

Fourth issue: Get "#5" up and running - and it starts tossing Blue Screens at me!!!

Beginning to get

Fifth issue: Now both machines Blue Screen (Fatal Exception OE) within 10 Minutes of Booting to Windows - but hold stable in Safe Mode (with and without network support), and booted directly to DOS prompt.

Definitely now!!!

Exception OE is same on both machines - so try running both machines without their patch cords connected to the Ethernet Switch.
So far, stable operation with a "Full Windows Boot" has been successful for over 24 Hours.

This kind of sucks for me- as I am forced to do "Sneakernet" until these issues get resolved.

So if you see me in the chat rooms - I have successfully conquered the dreaded:
Buggy-Wuggys who bring upon the Blue Screens Of Death!

Scott: Have you not been paying homage to Bill Gates? LOL


I must say that I enjoyed the chat tonight. We discussed everythin from the Beatles to Personal Protective Equipment, and had a great time doing it.

To all: Jump in...the water is nice

You should have called the "TV" guy that works around the corner. He only charges $1.25 an hour.
