Definitely doing that. Gotta have 'em all at my fingertips all the time!

Did that, over Daddyof3's vehement protests. We have 6.4, and he hates the update(s). Refers to them as "memory hogs and system bloaters". But I downloaded it anyway. When that didn't work, he gleefully pushed me out of the way and uninstalled it. Been a while since I've seen him enjoy anything that much. Huh.

Geez, it's not that old. DH is pushing for a new one though, so this may give him more leverage. Hmmm...spend a fortune on a new puter so I can watch my videos? I don't see why not. Anyway, the media player has been reinstalled, and it's still not working.

Okay, I'm off to give that a shot. Crossing my fingers.
