Hi ya Rick,
Sorry about the trip to the dentist and all. Hard telling which is worse, going to the dentist or having computer problems.
Computer problems can give you headaches for weeks on end. About a year ago, I had so much trouble with my computer, I threw it in the trash and got an e-machine from Wal-mart for $298, End of headache.
I don't need one of those fancy ones, I just browse forums, doing banking and store pictures. Worst case scenerio, if you decide to dump your computer next go around, just go to the local library and use theirs, it's free.
Glad to see your back.. Now just get youself a nice glass of wine, and a piece of cheese and listen to your favorite music. I'm a Mozart and Gershiwn kinda guy. Never liked the rap crap.
