   WI Cynic posted on Main Page The Lobby  The timing was horrible. I had no idea how often I lurked here for enjoyment until the election was going on and the Connection was off. Withdrawel symptoms... not pretty.

   Hollyhock  Like you I come here often. Left a big void when the Connection was off. Don't post much anymore but still enjoy reading. Glad it's back. Thanks to Luis and the crew.

   WI Cynic posted on Veterans' Page & Militaria  In memory of my shipmates lost 25 years ago on USS Stark (FFG-31 ), May 17, 1987. I'm getting older, but they never will.

   WI Cynic posted on Computers &Tech Issues  For you users of Windows 7...

Some cheapskate around here hasn't bought a new PC in quite a while; it's still running Windows XP (when it's not running linux ). It may be time to replace it with something a little newer.

Did you have XP before 7? How do you like 7 in comparison?

   BubbaEuler  I like my Win 7 HP x64 very much and for many different reasons. I loved my old XP but the new 64 bit Win 7 is easier to use and easier to maintain. I would not go back to XP unless ... well, I just wouldn't!

   Balogreene  As a writer, and therefore Word Processor, I hated 7 when I first got it. They changed all the menus and nothing seemed intuitive any more. I took a day, all 8 hours of it at work, to set up my own shortcuts bar, and really learn it. I am once again a power user, but, I still don't like it. Today it took me 10minutes to figure out how to "insert" a comment. It's under "review", I added it to my shortcuts bar.

   WI Cynic  Outcome: the new (comparatively ) PC will have Windows 7, mostly because the maker doesn't have any XP drivers for it. Enthusiasm = low.

   Phooey  I switched to Win7 from Win98. What a shock! Talk about cheap!

   Bob913  Here is some help for Word

I do not like Office 2010
For Word and Excel you can use this UBitMenu toolbar. It puts back the Office 2003 toolbar you are familiar with. Free.

You all will hate Windows 8!
