Re: Online Mattress Purchases

Re: Windows 10 Free Upgrade Expired?

Here's a trick that still works, I've done it dozens of times, the last being a month or two ago. Step 1: Obtain and prepare a Win10 Build 1511 install disk (what I have always used for workaround) Step 2: Disconnect network connection, disable wireless, etc. Step 3: Set the clock to July 28th, 2016...

Re: More Explosive News from Samsung

"The reports of the permanent termination of the Galaxy Note7 follow one day after a $17 billion drop in Samsung's market capitalization and single-day stock price drop of 8%."

What you're saying is there's a fire sale on Samsung stock?

:D She loves to "pose". She actually modeled for a photographer acquaintance a year or two ago and her pic used to be on the Chemical Bank of Port Huron's website. I think she learned posing from the photographer. Now she does it for every picture.
