Well, you've read the notes, the notes made your lids heavy, and now it is time for you to post until the heavy-lidded cows come home.

George,

If the computer is a Dell, it might be the power supply or the motherboard that is going. My one at work started doing that until one day it would not come up at all.

It's not a courtroom drama, but it has an exciting courtroom sceen:  "Miracle on 34th Street" (the original version)

I just looked this up on IMDb.com and it was released on May 2, 1947...exactly 60 years and six days ago!!

Why would they release a movie about Christmas in May??

This question is answered in the Trivia section:

Despite the fact that the film is set during Christmas, studio head Darryl F. Zanuck insisted that it be released in May because he argued that more people went to the movies during the summer. So the studio began scrambling to promote it while keeping the fact that it was a Christmas movie a secret.

They're all Gateway computers and mine isn't the only one that this happened to.  SEVERAL computers had the exact same thing happen to them at the exact same time. :-\

FAvorite courtroom dramas....

12 Angry men
To Kill a Mockingbird
Perry Mason
Rumpole of hte Bailey
Matlock

At times I enjoyed THE PRACTICE, BOSTON LEGAL, JAG,  LA LAW, and a few others. Also there are stories I dont mind mind seeing on LAW and ORDER.

 I did not mind Pelican Briefs, Legal Eagles and A Few Good Men. The last movie is one of FEW that I can really stand Tom Cruise in.

I would have htem all checked for in a situation like that they would have bought from the same lot so they may all be bad.

I don't think that the individual computers are the problem...because the same thing happened to other computers at the exact same time, there's probably something wrong with the server that affected them.  Of course, I'm just guessing.

Well, I must be going to sleep.  I don't know if I'll be able to work in the morning and I want to try to get there as soon as I can so that I can leave earlier...and not be around if they come back up later in the day. ;)

Good morning, all!  Still hobbling around.  By the end of the first act of yesterday's reading, I thought I would die.  Luckily, Act Two was much shorter.  The reading, as Jose mentioned, was fun.  I must say I liked the music and lyrics better than the book, and I felt there was a problem with the leading lady.  I liked the rest of the cast a lot.  It was good to see several frends there and not so good to see one of my least favorite orchestrators - who works constantly though I don't know why, perhaps it's more to do with his steam room activities?

This morning, a long-awaited haircut, a trip to Tekserve, then on to Toyland and later the NYPL.
