Sometimes the solution to a BIG problem is so easy we overlook it.
It all began when I accidently accepted an offer to "upgrade" to Win10 on my tablet that was running Win8.1. I liked 8.1 and had no intention of changing but I hit the wrong key at the wrong time and disaster was heading my way. All was fine for a couple of months but more and more upgrades kept coming and eventually one was to much for the tablet and it froze up. Everyone who knows me knows I like to tinker with computers and I thought this would be a challenge I could handle.... WRONG... at least not for 6 months.
A new friend told me he is employeed at the local hospital as a computer tech. Thank god I now had a friend who may fix my tablet that by now had been down for 2 months. He had it another two, gave it back, said sorry "I can't figure it out".
For a while I just gave up but it kept gnawing at me. I loved that old tablet. Then it dawned on me. I had picked up a brand new Win 10 thumbdrive a little while back and forgot about it. I plugged it in and what do you know... it took right off.
Now I have my tablet back and just in time for me to take when I fly out tomorrow to see my daughter graduate from AF Basic Training.
Another BIG thing about tomorrow: Active Rainman Jerry Newman will be picking me up at the airport and having lunch with Tina and I at the Lackland AFB. How cool is that.
FYI, I'm re-writting this as a short version because after spending an hour on it and then hitting "publish" AR lost 3/4 of the content. Oh well.
