I had planned on having another of the Omaha starting hands to post today. That failed. Of course, I have an excuse. Of course.
The lap top, my favorite machine, finally fell apart. Into six pieces. Lovely. All of the pieces were recognizable to me as belonging somewhere. The problem, of course, was where, and how. Best Buys first question to me was; “Is it under Warranty?’ And the statement following was; “You’ll have to deal with Gateway yourself.”
To give Gateway credit, within two hours of an e-mail explaining my situation I received a return e-mail detailing, with the correct links included, the companies Gateway considered best suited to assist me.
So, I’m reduced to the new PC. All the up grades, registering software, transferring files and down-loading the replacements to configure this machine to the laptop is driving me insane. To say little of my gum chewing ISP techie types that was obviously impatient with “another of those stupid slobs that cannot remember his passwords.”
I will admit he (the Techie) held himself in when I suggested his attitude was showing, and explained that I had been using the wrong password (the last time I used the one I needed for the initial connect set-up with his company was eighteen months ago when I set up the laptop).
Aw, well. I’m sure the techies out there are having a good laugh.
So, anyway, some time today, after I get the various and sundry e-mail address changed over and all my favorites listed and on and on, I’ll get that silly number cruncher installed and amuse my self with Omaha starting hands.
Mean while, the folks running the various functions within Eh-Vegas seem to be busy and happy. Yeah, happy.
Go, Guys, Go.
Iggy needs to buzz over to the Poker.Com blog site. It’ll do his heart a world of good. They support the Obama.

Back to the new computer installation.
