Is on-hold music EVER good...? I think bad/annoying is a requirement to be hold music!

Last night, while cleaning out the basement, I unearthed a box with all the computer games my kids and I played back in the '90s. Age of Empires, Myst, Betrayal at Krondor, Command and Conquer, Oregon Trail. None of them will work on my Windows 10 PC.

On the other hand, my mom's 1935 first edition Monopoly game still works just fine.

Maybe try running them in compatibility mode (if you haven't already) if Windows 10 has it? I don't have Windows 10 so I'm not familiar. smile

If those games worked on Windows XP, you might be able to install XP Virtual Machine on your Win10 PC.

OK, so if I am disgruntled, I'm angry/mad/disappointed, etc., so what if I'm "gruntled"?

Would the opposite of "discussing" something be "cussing" something? wink Cussing happens a lot in the compliance world. laugh

Yeah, GD. Things are often taken under "cussion" here.

Things are often taken under = "con" in Spanish, therefore.... concussion

Some flaky people use to try to con me out of a loan back when I was a loan officer.

If the opposite of "pro" is "con", is the opposite of "progress" "Congress"?

Thirty years ago today, The Challenger Disaster occurred. I still remember watching this in school.

Very sad. I was a sophomore in college and remember where I was when it happened.

I was at work and can still picture exactly the scene when I found out. What a horrible tragedy.

I was watching on TV at home when I got a call from my bank asking me to come in for an interview.

I remember clearly - I was in my 6th grade science class (Dr. Sprague's class at Rhodes Elementary). We were watching it on TV when it happened and I remember everyone being stunned. Funny how I can remember that moment exactly but not really what happened after that....

I remember watching it in class too. Everyone was just stunned in silence.

I'd rather be the guy responsible for picking green skittles out of Hillary's dressing room candy dish, than look at one more HMDA file.
