-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Gateway Question : Update

Steve,
    I'm really glad to hear that you now have a 'new' system.  Sometimes, a 
format/reinstall is the absolute only way to go, but I prefer to leave that 
as more of a last resort when answering questions online, since I have no 
way of really knowing how much the person knows about backing up old stuff 
and getting through the process without an internet connection.  Personally, 
I have no problems with doing it on my own systems (got it down to a 
science) and rarely hesitate if I feel something isn't working right, but 
it's not advice I quickly toss around to many others, especially online. 
:O)

    Are you still going to play around with Ubuntu to see what it's like?

Peace,
GMan

The only dumb questions are the ones we fail to ask.
