    Thanks to all who have helped me over the years with Win98, XP, and
    now 7. Much appreciated.
    And, I hope that I assisted via a few of my posts.
    Microsoft forums are a step backward compared to this means of
    communication, in my humble opinion.
    ciao

    Yup, it is a a step back but that is what MS wants. Just making it
    easier for people with less of a clue to ask for help and then whine and
    complain when people aren't holding their hand through the whole process.

    I miss the days when you had to have knowledge to use a computer and get
    online.

    Why are you saying GoodBye? This newsgroup is not a part of the
    microsoft hierarchy newsgroups that are being shut down.

    Here, I have posted a reply to my "Good bye" message I posted to the group
    yesterday. I just added aioe.org to my nntp accounts in WLM. In the matter
    of less than 2 minutes, I had re-subscribed to this group. Hope it works
    for you too.

    I ran my own FidoNet BBS (1:163/567.0) also for several years using Maximus
    software. It was a lot of fun and the "community" was a tight knit group.

    It took a little bit of knowledge to get set up and that went for the users
    too. Now any idiot can get connected and it seems that the idiotic community
    is trying to take over.

    My provider has said they will carry all MS groups until they expire
    from lack of use, so we could have most of them for years to come.
