Windows 7: About time it happened...

10 Dec 2010   #21


So sorry Cody! I'm always afraid of slipping on the ice too! May I recommend YakTrax to you? I'm just about to get a set myself --- they're like chains --- and easy to attach to any shoe, and I've heard they're really effective.

Interesting. I do a lot of walking in the winter (and slipping, I guess.) so these would be nice to use.

Prisoner, sorry to hear what's happened. As I was just recently forced to use my computers only with one working hand with trackball and on-screen display, mostly lying in bed, I believe I can give you a nice tip.

I got this, and it really made a big difference:

That is really interesting... I'd get that even if I didn't have this injury. It looks neat.

I just thought you guys might be interested. Maybe it's just the meds. Lol
That sucks.....hope you mend quickly. I've been fortunate, broken my leg twice but never had to deal with a cast. Hope you don't do much with the left hand....

This thread is crawling with innuendo. xD
Eh, being ambidextrous helps, but doors will not be fun... but I guess I have legs for a reason.

Things appear to have gotten a little worse. Today I went back in to see how the bone was setting. It didn't exactly set... it went from about 50% off to a full 100% off. So I have to go into surgery tomorrow and get a plate or sorts put in to keep it aligned, or something along those lines.

The "fun" thing is that I learned that the break is close to a major nerve that controls my hand functions. So all I can do is pray that this surgeon knows what he's doing. But I think he does.

Prisoner, before you go rushing into surgery, don't you think you should see a 2nd surgeon for at least a 'second opinion'??? I know that I wouldn't go into surgery without a second opinion --- especially since you've been told the break is close to a major nerve --- and especially since you seem a little unsure about the surgeon. Best of luck to you!

Well, I'm only 15. I wouldn't be able to contact a second one.
My parents are calling the shots here, and it seems like they're okay with it.
And thanks for the luck.

Is there a way to find out what happened at what time?
I've been trying to track down what is causing file deletion on one of my drives. I've used a file recovery utility to determine that the last time I unexpectedly lost files was at 9:47 this morning. Is there something in Windows 7 that I can call up that will tell me what happened at any given...
