Whew.... ! ! ! ! ! I thought I might never see you all again (this month)..... Answered
Since last night (07/ 09/ 08) Until moments ago, I was unable to connect to the web through a browser ( my ISP said I was connected, but I was having NO luck bringing up a page from anywhere). Finally, after 6 restores, 9 reboots, one wasted service call to the ISP, 30+ tweaks that I now have to go and put back (since they didn't help at ALL), I had had it, and restored back to SUNDAY (cursed MicroSoft Critical Updates). It worked. And my 18 hour hiatus is finally over.....I was getting very worried ( partially since I pay most of my bills on line, they would be late if I had to snail mail them). Glad to see you all are still behaving LOL.
