Sounds like what you want to do is save your configuration information. This was discussed in another thread, and I suggested then using a software audit program like this - WinAudit v2.27 - Free Computer Audit Software You might want to take a look at it and see if it will do the job, or at least make it easier.

+1. No, let me think. +112.

That can be one of the most valuable things to know to a man.

Adding to that, my father always told that a balanced and happy marriage means that both wife and husband can and will openly tell their respective opinions, desires, wants and likes before agreeing to do as the wife wants.

This is very true. In the end, you still always end up doing what th wife wants, but my marriage is good enough that I can voice my opinion, have it heard, and then go with hers. The joke is, I often do things "under the flag of protest".

Pa is boss
As everyone knows,
But what Ma says
Always goes.

They were married more than 70 years.
