One story, from the editor of the SHAKESPER list:
I have reached the point with restoring my programs that I am able to return to editing SHAKSPER digests and distributing them to the members. Sorry again for the interruption.
One consequence of my recent adventure is that I have become, in the past few weeks, intimately knowledgeable of Windows 7, having recovered from more kinds of difficulties than I could have imagined possible.
To dwell upon the positive side of my most recent adventure, however, I would like to offer my now considerable knowledge of this operating system with any member needing assistance installing, configuring, or repairing newly upgraded Windows 7 computers. I am amazed at how many obstacles I have overcome and rather than just letting this knowledge go to waste I am making this offer.
