I read about them, but have no personal experience with them

Mine was one of the first with the 3.5" disks. But yes, I also had an external disk drive with a 5.25" floppy drive. I think it was DOS 2.11

I am taking the medicine of the ENT - But, I go to my chiropractor when my neck has been locking up for the past year and a half. No one else can help me get it unstuck at that moment in time.

I mentioned what happened to the guy I have seen for years - and he said that based on my explanation of what that San Antonio chiropractor did to me - he caused it. It did also start a few hours after that adjustment. I'll never go back to that San Antonio guy again.

The guy I go to I have seen for years.l I personally do not believe all the other things that a chiropractor can do. But when something gets stuck, or a joint comes out of place (I have had SI joint issues for years) - I have no other choice.

Great. Glad you feel better.

At my worst last year - I literally had to see my chiropractor 3x a day at 1 point. What else can I do when My neck gets stuck and it's pinching a nerve at the same time. It was crazy.

I went thru 8 pairs of glass and even tried a couple of pairs of contacts. I could put on a new pair of glasses and have my neck and shoulders tighten up within 5 minutes of wearing the new pair. I've tried different materials for the lenses too. Nothing works.

I had issues with glasses in years past - and I would get various symptoms, and then a stiff neck. Now that I have arthritis, it seems that instead of smoothly rubbing against each other, the vertebrate gets stuck. I've literally spend $6k on this since this started 18 months ago. I am better than I was last year - but it's still really affecting my life. It's a daily issue I have to deal with, and it's really wearing on me. It's affected me a lot and I'm really sick of dealing with all this.

And now, I've added this other problem I've posted about above.   :bangheadonwall:

Funny.

Actually, I have been seeing her for 2 and a half years now.

I've always had some optical migraine issues for 20 years now. It is just getting worse as I get older. Now, my eyes make my neck muscles tighten up so much that the vertebrate in my neck lock up.

I've been to 10 doctors about this. I recently got botox in my neck for the 3rd time, and I've also gotten steroid shots in my muscles in my back. Only thing that has helped so far, but it's just a temporary bandaid.

I'm waiting until Dec to see another neurologist (6 month waiting period) to see if he has any ideas.

I've watched this a few times - She puts on the duvet... I still do not understand how she does it:

There is a chrome extension called Pixlr that is very close to Photoshop. It works well, and allowed me to jump off of Windows and to my Chromebook.

But yes, if you are tied to those programs, you'd have to stay with Windows

Thanks, I am better. But, still have issues about 90 min after I eat. Plus, the medicine makes me feel weird.

I just can't win. I've already been dealing with neck issues for 18 months - tied to optical migraines. Like I needed another problem...

I know there is a Fry's on I45 just north of Houston and one on Beltway 8

What do you do on your Windows computer? Just browsing and email? Anything specific?

Russian Hockey Team Starts Giving AK-47 to Player of the Game




Quote
The Russian club, which plays in the second-tier VHL, unveiled a new postgame award this week after defeating Chelmet. Its not a hat, or a jacket, or a rock or any of the other things NHL teams pass around the dressing room. No, goalkeeper Saveli Kononov was feted for his strong performance in net by receiving an AK-47.

Windows 10 is not too bad. You can remove all the "tiles" that are attached to the start menu, and make it look more like a normal start menu. There are a few other settings you can work on to make it look more like traditional windows.

I personally have fallen in love with Chromebooks. I have 2 chromebooks and a chromebox (the desktop version). If not for Turbotax and my ipad, I wouldn't even bother with my 1 windows 10 laptop.

When I lived in Dallas, I loved the Fry's in Arlington - back around 2004. That is sad to hear

I stopped 90% of my coughing within 12 hours of starting that reflux medicine.

Once I stopped the coughing, THEN I could notice the other symptoms of reflux.

ironically I had recorded that movie and decided, this morning, to watch it.....after "those from outer space" arrived, then left, I fast-forwarded thru it,  to the end and then hit the "delete" option

what crap

See, I love that movie. It was awesome to see it on the big screen. One of my all time favorite films. Sorry you did not like it. It was awesome

My first wife and I saw it a few times in the theater back in the late 1990s when it came out

guess the above is "over my head" (of course, a lot of things go that way.....)

You would have had to watch The 5th Element movie to get that
