One more step and that gets one to a TI 386 that I just can't bear to trash (though I once trashed a TRash 80).(Well, on second thought, it tended to first trash cassette tapes more often than I freaked. Though I did freak more and more with each tape.)

Man, that TI 386 was a huge leap in computing power - along with its 20mb HDD (!!) -- replacing an 8088 "portable" with a 5mb HDD (!!!) that, as a brother-in-law said decades ago while carrying it from my hospital bedside, "Now I understand why they're operating on your back."

Ah, but my old Workhorse Dell 9100, despite having I3's to I7's and, even, two Dell 1340's (precisely alike excepting respective service codes -- the ultimate backup!) is still a favorite. So far, I've been able to throw just about anything at it and it just keeps on keeping on.

And speaking of which . . . it's time to refocus on a problem or two for someone who thought "back up" only applied to a daily pre-work routine involving a four-wheeled computer.

MY Best To All,

I'm curious though, since you say you have been visiting the forums for years, why the hesitation from joining?

Well, Strollin, probably due to my hesitancy to just merely join anything and everything calling itself a "forum" or, more particularly, a "chat."

For instance, while I've got a Twitter account, rarely do I twit (yes, I know, but I believe they avoided using that very word for the obvious reason of my using it).

Please understand that I honestly have no objection whatsoever that others utilize the means, it's just that I don't. One could accurately say such is like aversions to certain foods or, say, state fair rides.

Years ago this user was among the privileged few (which I mean sincerely) who were part of a major software maker's alpha and beta gangs, the last product I worked on being a no-longer-used chat client that revolved around a comic book-like theme.

By the time of that particular beta I'd already pretty well soured on forums (and chats), mainly because of those whose primary intent, if not "talent" was only to obstruct and disrupt.

Giving the chat another go for the software beta's sake proved instructive, learning that those who would do whatever they could to injure others seemed to be an inescapable number if not mental state. (Indeed, a ventured thought is that those who are into "cyber bullying" may well be of the same ilk, "pushing buttons" merely for the sake of such without consideration of those on the other side.)

While once again expressing my sincere belief that participation in anything is squarely in the personal likes or dislikes arena -- I'm really big on using the "off" or "channel" knobs -- attitudes focused on disruption rather than construction is something I choose to do without. And while there likely are those who would cite the exercise of personal freedom in seeking to do such things, I assert the same freedom in choosing to do without.

Fortunately for me and others of similar mind, Seven Forums provides an arena to communicate that demands its members adhere to a code that expects civility and respect to be exercised between fellow participants.

The other night, in the midst of my epiphany that led to registering herein, among other things I realized Seven Forums as a whole had long adhered to its demand.

Oh, I'm sure there are those who've deviated. It's called being "human." The good news is that Seven Forums appears to frown upon regular exercises of such.

Thank you for seeking my thoughts, Strollin. That's cool.

Best Regards,
