Default It's only me

Oldies to the forum will know that this is ME, harrysin, better known as simply Harry, and the reason for the name change today can be explained by this photograph. Yes my new computer whilst still working started to make worrying noises like one of the hard drive heads knocking, so it's likely to be in hospital for a few days, but I shall maintain my role on the forum as and when I can push my darling wife off her computer.

Could be worse Harry, My "better half" is on a linux-ubuntu system with of all things, a track ball!
She won't let me near her system! LOL!
Cordially,
Gerry

Levon, what happened about nine months ago was that I came down with Shingles and was in too much pain to contribute to the forum on a regular basis so
after a while when I was feeling a little better I registered a new account, not to fool anyone but just so that I could contribute as and when I felt up to it. Our just retired moderator Glenmore sussed me out after my first post but kept it secret from other members who surprisingly didn't guess in spite of the style being the same.
The present use of ELECTRON is because that's how my wifes computer logs in.
By the way, the Shingles is still with me albeit not as painful, I even ordered a small jar of cream from America a few weeks ago at a final price a little over $A116.00, it was as effective as a jar of Johnsons wax polish! Today I bought some pills from a health food shop that promise to be effective for this kind of nerve pain, time will tell.

Harry,
Really sorry about your computer. But, I'm _very_ sorry to hear of your illness.
Take care my new friend.

So, Electron is the original Harry!
And what could be more original than to have an invisible computer?(see picture)

Harry, i think i remember someone saying you had the shingles. i have had a couple for friends that had the shingles. i know it takes a long time to get over them. are you mostly over them now? i do hope so. i also know they are very painful. i am sorry you were unfortunate enough to get them. i also hope you computer is up and running soon, that way you wont have to share and can be on the froum as much as you want. i also miss your orange suit!
