This should have been a DIY build.

I'm not sure what you are referring to, but I can tell you that we did not buy a pre-bundled package off the shelf. We didn't like the computers they had on the store, in fact, and ordered exactly what we wanted. We have both physically built computers before, but this was a good deal and we let them put it all together, according to our specifications. As far as setting it up at home, I could have done it, but James likes to do that kind of thing, so I let him.

I know that for you it is a lifeline and that is why I am so thrilled for you. And for James too because I know he would get as much enjoyment out of setting that up for you as Tony did for Dad.

Give each other a big hug from me!

I hope you enjoy it. Had to buy all new a couple of years ago, so know where you're at. Mine didn't slowly die, it crashed and burned to the point where I lost most of my files (own darned fault, no back-up). Luckily for us computer is basically communications and entertainment, not business. My frustration is that every time my computer gets more modern, I seem to be able to figure out how to do less on it. I used to love instant messaging with my sister and my nephew, but ..... can't seem to get it set up now. Used to be able to scan things and attach to emails, can't now. Heck, when I was gainfully employed, I used to to the set-up for my office. The last time I tried to replace my printer, the whole system crashed.
