Adding insult to injury, I managed to 'pop' my shoulder on the way down. Another trip to the ER. (We've just got to stop meeting like this.....).
Kudo's to Dr. Vidal & Nurse Ivan. It was about two hours of excruciating Agony getting Xrayed & 'prepped'. Finally, I became aware of my surroundings, not knowing that I had been 'elsewhere'. And my arm was back in my shoulder socket. There was a bit of tenderness, but the major pain was gone. I was back home four hours after it happened.
Ah, yes... this is definately a ' Don't try this at home (or on a production-machine)' issue.
I'm still strapped up with a shoulder harness, but I seem to be able to use the computer ok.
Here's hoping that you have a better day than I. ;-)

I watched Hanna drift North from Boca while at work, on the computer about 14:00 or 15:00.
Relief ! I figured correctly that it was going to be a beautiful evening for the NASF Happy Hour at 'The Sands' (click here).
And if you hit the link above, you'll see that it was a lovely evening indeed. The next Happy Hour is on 03 October 2008.

(I guess that the big party in St. Paul has really upset the balance of nature - Don't say that Al Gore didn't warn us)
Meanwhile my little brother goes Kayaking from Salem Willows to Misery Island (put it in 'Slide Show' mode at:
......and further, have a nice day !!

I skipped ME & 2000, but did update to XP Pro and all subsequent SPs. In all this time, I always 'cloned' up or updated on the existing system. OK, it's 2008, ten years of never doing a complete clean-up and the registry probably looked like a car engine that had never had an oil change.
The back breaker was using the Scanner. I had to shut down my Zone Alarm AV & Adware functions in order to start the scanner software. ZA was just using too many clock cycles and you could see it clearly in Task Manager & Process Explorer.
All important files and programs were available on my Vista Desk top & Laptop so I could wipe clean without really losing anything. I had two 40g drives available so I just completely removed the 80g & 10g (used for swap file). I installed one 40g. (You know the song, Fdisk, Format - Reinstall.) With XP Pro sp1 & immediate update to sp2 & sp3. After that, AVG virus scanner, PC Tools Firewall Plus, my original, tried & true Office 2000, SysInternals, Firefox& ACDC etc.
After everything was in, running and fully updated, I took my second 40g disk, and cloned the first on to the second and then swapped drives. So the drive I just built is on the shelf as an emergency replacement & the clone is now happily whirring away in my 'Gateway'. I'm going to hold the 80g drive 'loaded' on the shelf for a while in case I need to re-install it.
Best of all, if I want to Scan, I can do so directly without having to shut down something else in order to do it. When not doing that, I can watch Hurricane Fay as it proceeds merrily on it's Florida Vacation. What do you do on a rainy day?
