Hi, People,
If it's not one thing, it's something else!
My 2008 Town & Country with 52,000 miles on it, threw a rod! It was out of oil and the warning lights never flashed. Oh, for the old-fashioned guages.
No warranties are in effect so I'll get the honor and thrill of coming up with $2500+ so I can conntinue to drive. I also received a $1000 statement from a local hospital for my visit there for a severe, sudden, toothache. My Medicare says that visit is not covered but I've requested a review. I've since had several root canals but, what with unkind comments of other, similarly-treated patients, won't be surprised if those teeth will need to be extracted, anyway. Nuts!
I'm tidying up my D-J story and adding much info on my deceased relatives and some of my own exploits.
Don't give up on me!
Jerry

Sorry, Guys,
I*'m moving kinda slow, now, because I got a total knee replacement last January. While I feel my recovery is slow, the doctor and his associates assure me I'm getting along OK. At my age (86,) I should not expect a rapid or steady recovery.
I do go to the local YMCA 3 times a week to get siome helpful exercises but have not yet noticed noticed significant improv-ments.
I'm still adding material to my D-J writings but am resigned to never being completely satisfied. I've been told to call a halt to more additions and settle for what I now have (120,000 words on 220 pages; 134 pictures will increase that to about 235.)
Wish me luck!
Jerry

Hi, Guys,
I've gotten myself in a pickle and don't know how to get out of it; my work on the D-J story is on hold, for now.
The computer I've been using at our local library is obsolete and will no longer be supported by MS. Consequently, I bought an updated, 2013 version and had the library's computer consultant install it. Unfortunately, something got fouled up when the data in the old pc was transferred; It can no longer be accessed in a readable form and my 8 GB flashdrive exhibits the same flaws.
Our consultant is also at a loss as to how to make use of the material in the pc hard or the flash drives. He expects to consult with a Microsoft expert and clear up my difficulties. Until then, I can not get into my pc or alter its content. It is very frustrating but I'm still trying! Sorry.

Aaaargh!

I would strongly suggest finding someone local who has some Linux experience, and getting them to image the old computer's hard disk and your usb key, in read only mode, using ddrescue *before* letting anyone else play with them. In fact, don't ever let anyone play with the original media unless they can guarantee they are going to do so in read-only mode or can prove that they actually need access to the physical hardware.

I'm a continent away, but if you can get me a raw image of your usb key I would happily have a look at recovering your data free of charge. I'm not a "Microsoft Expert", but my experience has been that anyone describing themselves as such is far from being the sort of people you want to let near your hardware.

Feel free to mail me offlist, simon dot stapleton at google's wonderful free mail system.
