Hi. Since it is not my computer, I do not have details. The computer is a MacBoookPro. I believe it is about 4 years old. He sells boks on many sites, ebay, amazon...he is sole user. no personal website. THE SUFFIX TO HIS EMAIL IS OPTONLINE.NET.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A RESPONSE!
It changes it and adds the symbols.

Is this helpful?
below is a response from his computer...

I'll wait till I see you. I 'am not going to mail anything cause it's
silly and you would find it ridiculous in the mail.



I also have this crazy huge Xmas ornament of Nantucket that the
manufacturer gave to me.

Think Marlee would like it? it has a map on one side

and says Nantucket on the other. it was one of their fancier pieces.


so, my dear, you know Monday and Tues are my days.....

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
