At the day job I use an archaic hand-me-down Dell. Occasionally,
it forgets it has memory upon booting up - only to curiously display
familiar desktop items later in the week just when I begin to get
And though I still adore that old Smith-Corona Super Sterling and it is wireless and portable, it's also disconnected, and just won't cut it long term.
