I got lazy, had a brain-fade and installed all of aol's bells & whistles...


OSNN One Post Wonder
:dead: It's deja-vu all over again for me w/ aol...

In a moment of MADNESS I installed aol's 9.0 Security version after they so NICELY sent me the disk...

As before, with EVERY complete installation AOL software took over my system and even when I deleted or removed or threatened my computer w/ my ol' hackneyed cliche of 'I'll pull the plug!" I was no longer even able to guestimate what it would do next...:angry:

Luckily, I learned a trick that works for me and has saved me MANY times. I partitioned 'C' and created a 'D' saving ALL my important files in 'D.' :eek: When in the course of HUMAN events it becomes necessary to wipe and reinstall ALL :ninja:software that my computer came w/....I don't loose my really important stuff: music and pics...docs and:smoker: funn stuff...

AS w/ a multitude of new year's resolutions...I AGAIN affirm that I WILL NEVER take aol installs @ their word... :speechless: :disappointed: :alien:


Debiant by way of Ubuntu
why not stick it in the Welcome to OSNN thread? ;)

Speaking of which - welcome you are Stephen...

Good job you seem to have the right idea about AOL - no need for you to get flambéd on your first post :p
Ha! Your pain is understood. When I removed my AOL (2000?) the search engines weren't that great so it was hard to get help. So I just did what I knew...reformat!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
