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.

More lovely.

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.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
