Vista Home Premium, contemplating moving to Linux

You were rich. My first job after high school, they were excempt from minimum wage. So instead of $1.25 per hour, I got 60 cents per hour.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1

My first full time job after graduating from trade school in the spring of 1976 paid $3.10/hr and I thought I had the world by the tail! Now I make many times more per hour and it seems like I have less disposable income than I did then after paying the monthly expenses. I fear the day is coming soon, when the US dollar won't be worth the paper it is printed on.

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1

When I was bad at school and got an a$$ whipping from the Teacher, I just knew that I was in for another one when I got home.
Not sure that it worked though

My first job (at age 14 - they didn't check ID in those days), was ushering at the famous Hollywood Bowl (see 1st pic, below) on Saturday evenings during the summertime. We ushered the people to their seats, and once the performance started, we were finished with our work and could sit on the stairs and watch the performance. For this 'hard work' we were paid $2. It was terrific. Every Saturday night we got to see the most amazing celebrity performances.

My second job was also pretty cool. At age 15, I worked as an usher again, but this time at Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater (where they have the famous movie star's footprints and hand prints in the cement, and lots of "Red Carpet" premiers -- see 2nd pic below), for 75 cents an hour. The only problem was, in those days "first run" theaters only showed one film, every day, all day and evening, for weeks and weeks at a time, so this job didn't last long, cause once I had seen the same film over 20 times, I was going bonkers and finally quit.

Next job wasn't so glamorous. I worked at a department store (for 75 cents an hour - again) in the Men's Shoes department. It was a very slow department with very few customers. Got a lot of homework done though.

Cool 1st jobs Imperfect1, my 1st wasn't quite as good but was kinda unusual.

The job I had in High School where I made $1.35 an hour was working at a Christmas themed amusement park. Among my various duties was being a "wrangler" for Santa's reindeer and also being a "wrangler" for burros for the burro ride (had to saddle/unsaddle 9 burros every day).

The park would be very busy during the last 2 weeks before Christmas but would be very slow during the summer months such as August.

The girls that worked there had to wear a green costume with pointed shoes so they looked like an elf. Thankfully the boys didn't need to dress like that but we did wear Lederhosen (leather shorts with suspenders).

Locked out of my comp by kids
So my kids were playing on the computer and somehow managed to change the password. I have no idea where the disc is to fix this. Is there a way I can do a system restore? Will that reset it or is a system restore only done when logged in?
