    Not been a particularly useful day, but this seemed to be relatively
    important to address... :) (I'll answer the rest of the message when I
    get back to it in sequence... <G>)

    With this message, I appear to be all caught up.... I've not had
    any replies from you since May 31st... I have noticed that you've
    been conversing with Ky in the echo, so you seem to be around...
    It's ok to start replying now... just not all at once... <G>
    Ky and I noted the lack of messaging: know Daryl is off-line, you sometimes don't reply for a day or two. The others don't post consistently. Started thinking something was wrong between the
    transfer between Michael's and Lee's systems.

    By the time I wrote that "all caught up" message, I had been sending
    regular packets daily for about a week... I sent out packets with 5
    messages each on Jun 1, Jun 2, Jun 3, Jun 4, and Jun 5, with that last
    packet on Jun 6 with only three.... When I finally received anything
    from you, it was in answer to my Jun 5th messages, and then these in
    reply to my Jun 6th messages....

    So now my wonder is whether or not you even received the packets from
    Jun 1st through Jun 4th.... or if somehow your responses to those
    packets went awry and never reached me.... I am willing and able to
    resend all the messages from me that might have gone missing on their
    way to you (will do it in groups of 5, to keep from getting things
    overwhelmed again, if needed)... If you sent replies to them after all,
    maybe you could try to re-send....?

    And, of course, with this packet to me, I note that Daryl is back and
    sending out current (as well as backdated) messages... :)

    Nancy,

    And, of course, with this packet to me, I note that Daryl is back and sending out current (as well as backdated) messages... :)

    I was offline much of June 9, due to 3 reasons:

    1) Internet: The Xfinity connection, and the cable modem, kept resetting.

    2) Thunderstorms: We had 2 waves...one from 9am to 12 noon, then the other
    with the cold front from 9pm to 12 midnight.

    3) MAJOR UPDATE to Windows 10...it took 7 hours to finish everything. (Now,
    I know why you like DOS <G>).

    ... They're coming to take me away, ha ha, hee hee!! They're ... Uh
    Oh!!

    I requested a room with a window. <G>

    OK...

    I did not receive yours nor anyone's mail during that period: on my side
    I saw no messages to download from Techware. So yes, please re-upload
    your packets, or edit to make current (more work!).


    And, of course, with this packet to me, I note that Daryl is back
    and sending out current (as well as backdated) messages... :)

    Yes, I was rather pleased to see those. The problem as I recall was a
    corrupt command line.

    How unhelpful...

    2) Thunderstorms: We had 2 waves...one from 9am to 12 noon, then the

    At least there was a benefit to the cold front... ;)

    3) MAJOR UPDATE to Windows 10...it took 7 hours to finish everything. (Now, I know why you like DOS <G>).

    But of course... ;) Legacy software doesn't require updates, even... <G>

    And did you get one...? They usually only have fully padded ones... <G>
