    Welcome back! Too bad about Vista. Glad to hear you're taking it head on, though - I guess there's no other choice with Microsoft, is there? :)

    Thanks to all for the welcome back,Ross and Jen my best wishes for your daughter. Kathi I shouldn't be on line yet ,the server in Aust has a special vista team that is going to call me soon (about ten days) to help me get the net and email set up. What is with Bill he seems to have caught every one with their pants down this time(even symantec) I suppose if we can survive cancer what odds a piece of technology.
    I don't have any pets now lisa.p ,none allowed here, I visited them the other day and the dogs barked at me(the cats just ignored me) How soon they forget. Perhaps I should get injected with cat genes . Cheers All.

    Ron, How awesome to see you back so soon! You have taken some great first steps in your new chapter of this saga we all call life! You don't know how ou made me day by letting us know that you are here and involved again! We long-term survivors know that surviving cancer means surviving cancer AND life as a survivor! Wish I had a gift for your new apartment...my best wishes will have to do!

    I read your post about dealing with cancer at the same time as going through a divorce... been there as well. I kicked my ex out of the house in October of 2003, which was the same time i first had symptoms of what i found out in August of 2004 was colon cancer. However, I have never regretted the separation and subsequent divorce. If he had stayed around, i would have wound up having to comfort him, since he was having such a hard time dealing with his wife having cancer, etc. It's been a tough ride, but it could have been much worse! I hope you are doing well and having a successful fight with the beast.

    I am so delighted that you are back on board (ha ha). You have been a source of inspiration for many for many years. Wishing you all the best as you go thro what I'm sure is a challenging transition.....(and not just the computer stuff!).
