White Screen Blues...

Not sure if anyone noticed that I evaporated this past week...

My laptop developed a 'white screen', would not shut down...leaving me no other choice than to donate it to a laptop graveyard. Apparently, there is a wacky virus circulating which my laptop caught. I had the option of removing the virus for a mere two hundred bones, or simply replacing the entire machine. I chose option #2. Sounds easy enough...except taking into account the data on the infected laptop. It all had to be transferred, however this virus was able to hide many files and applications. Transferring the data should have taken several hours...not several days. Long story short...I'm back with a new laptop...not so sure I'm a fan yet of this keyboard. I'll keep you posted.

May Almighty God Bless and protect each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine.
