Thanks for writing back. It was Adeline of the addy "Tim
Jones" I talked to. Did you get her two emails I sent you?
She asked things that were over my head to answer...I'm glad
you and the others have already been in touch with her, so
maybe this isn't so important.
I hope you didn't lose too much on your HD...we have a
situation like that, with all my 15 yo DD's writing and
poetry on it. Hopefully DH can salvage it. Anymore
computers are like cars...can't live with 'em, can't live
without 'em! LOL
