Hello Fellow Booksharians,

Just a short note to let you all know that Lissi has had some serious computer 
trouble, but she should be back online by Monday evening.

I'm just mentioning it here because I know there are several people whose scans 
she proofreads on a regular basis and we thought that it would be a good idea 
to let you know that she is not willingly neglecting her proofreading.

A gentleman who definitely knows what he is doing IMHO, took a look at it this 
morning. In addition to having an extensive virus infection, which her 
antivirus software did not tell her about, she needs either a new video card, a 
new monitor, or both. He was having trouble seeing the screen well enough to 
work effectively. He will be bringing both on Monday. Also, the system will get 
a complete disk wipe and reinstallation of Windows XP and all her applications 
to clear out the virus, and also to get rid of a number of malfunctions 
involving Windows that were around before the virus infection.

Hopefully,, if all goes well, she'll be able to get back in action by Monday 
evening. Because she's told me, I know that she very much misses proofreading 
and is eager to get back to it as soon as ever she can.
