  1. You guys are freaky. Every issue I have, you’ve talked about recently. Had an issue with windows updates that would never finish. Last month or so, Google has been stealing my mobile data even with it turned off… Like 150 Meg every couple days. And I’ve been using Directory Opus since my Amiga 500 and 4000 days. I just happen to have the original manual sitting out from cleaning out the old file cabinets. The program I use for cataloging is called Where Is It? Faster than Opus.
    Now my latest issue is no output to my speakers. I have to use my Bluetooth earbuds for sound on my desktop. Guess I’ll have to dig out my old external soundblaster. Plugging in headphones fried my last computer. Maybe the Bluetooth is safer.
