I wish I was a machine, because I would be much easier to fix.... ;D

I had W1, briefly, before I dumped it for an Amiga. Anyone remember Windows Bob?  :gig:

I won't be updating W7, for reasons I explained, elsewhere.

Ha, I recently had an endoscopy !!  ;D :flowers:
So it appears I have some stomach ulcers........deep joy.

As for Windows Bob, I think I vaguely remember that from my Win98/SE days.
Also that annoying 'paper clip' which to me is like the annoying Cortana and Cloud now on Win10.

Oh my quack gave me some Omeprazole capsules, but not sure they are doing any good.
But at least the good news was, that I am not pregnant !!  ;D

I have had an unexpected appointment letter from the Consultant chappy, for the end of this month....hmmmm, good news, just a check up perhaps, bad news, have I made a Will yet ?
That sort of thing.... ;D

Hope the capsules work for you, if it caused by a virus they should.

Speaking of pregnant, the female of the couple that took our old caravan, spied the neighbour's cat in our yard & was talking to it asking if it was pregnant, when I told her his name was Kevin, he would have nothing to do with her after that.  :gig:

Hope it's good news with the consultant.

Also sorry to hear about your ulcers, I've had a blood test that checks for the antibodies to a bug that can cause them and fortunately I have never had it and haven't got it. I'm taking Lansoprazole which is similar to Omeprazole, had to stop taking it for 2 weeks before the blood test and as far as reducing reflux etc it most certainly does work it was an uncomfortable fortnight.

BOB  :hm: :comp1:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Bob I liked what it says near the end "In 2015, a successor to Microsoft BOB was released called Windows 10."  :hysterical:

That annoying paper clip was called Clippit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Office_Assistant. I shudder when I recall how helpful it was. "It looks like you are writing a suicide note, would you like help?"  :axe:

Do you also remember Dr Watson the debugger? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Watson_(debugger)

I had to laugh at the cat one Yvonne..... ;D

I only went to my quack because I have been suffering from afternoon tiredness, and loss of appetite.
I'd have have a nice hot meal in the evening, then after a short while my stomach would say 'I am bored with this, stop eating', so I did and wasted half a meal.

I then had the bright idea of swapping to a sort of salad based meal, just adding jacket spud, some iceberg lettuce and sliced tomato with something like cooked chicken/chicken in bread crumbs, gammon ham, sort of things.

Yep I know, ideal grub in the middle of winter.... ;D

But it sort of worked, and I began to feel better, but turned up for the endoscopy appointment anyway.
I like discomfort !  ::)

But, the very attractive Chinese Doctor who was ramming the hose pipe and camera down my guts, was a nice distraction, and I was very brave, and didn't cry like a little girl.... 8) ;D

Anyway, that's life, so I keep calm and carry on... :gig:

Thanks for those links Obblie, they bring back memories.... ;D

In the early days, I fell into the trap of downloading screen savers and animated ones as well, tool bars, and other crap, which as far as I know, the only virus I have ever given a home to.
I couldn't understand why my cursor was moving all over the screen, without any guidance from me.
I think 'hot bar' was the main culprit amongst others.... :blush:

So that cost me ten quid to have a bloke come out and re-install Win98 or SE, receive a lecture about downloading all this fancy bad for my PC crap, and learnt a few lessons at the same time.

Today I just use the Windows firewall, and MSE, and leave it at that.
Used to run MBAM. which I paid for the full version, but then got demanding nags to pay 30 for another year...........so I got rid of it......even the 'free' version, as that kept nagging me to upgrade.

We live and learn huh ?
