the computer its installed on doesn't work right (didn't meet minimum specs), but I added ram so it went from 96mb to 256mb so I might try reinstalling. then maybe we could scan!

It's entertaining and since they never stop asking for stuff, it keeps me on my edge. Especially since they never want something simple.
I wish my parents actually did that kinda stuff, instead they wanna know how much a Home theater system costs, and then forget about if

I do that, but its not as easy as it could be... I wanna get finger print readers, run the internet through my comp, and have accts for each person, but that will never happen....
