Christmas is more than just a day -- its relationships, emotions, memories, and positive energy... . Christmas more than any other holiday evokes home and family.

10MB? Did you mean 10GB? If it is not a mis-print, then what OS are you installing? Because I want a copy.

I love a scratch rebuild.... (on someone else's puter) A couple things I would suggest, build an install directory on a clean hard disk and copying everything into that you need for your install. If you install from there then you never need to search for any install disks. Keep your C:\ partition s...

affirmation of one's belief should be admired
attacking another's belief should be ignored
espousing selfrighteousness should be suspect
denying another's righteousness is a judgement
I can't judge myself, let alone judge others.

The family had eaten dinner at Roseburg and their best bet at that time would have been to catch Highway 42 which is a better maintained more travelled road to the coast. If they continued down I5 then the next best would have been to go Hwy199 all the way into California at Crescent City and then n...

I don't think the fault is on your side, probs with the site software I believe. I hope you try again as I just sold my only Blackhawk, a SE aluminum and I'd love to see your variations. A very influential and important model which exhibits recognizable traits with many later models.
