Baggy Pants to the rescue!!!!

The boy is good. I re-installed a clean copy of windows xp, and than encountered tech idiots. I was having trouble connecting to the internet and I am hard wired, so it did not make a lick of sense. Well, the 5th techie told me my media card was destroyed and I must go purchase one. That isn't happening as my money has other priorities. So I get Jesse on the phone and he talk me through installing drivers for sound, video, modems etc. We spent about 20 minutes on the phone last night and he talked me through the drivers installation. Than K switched the ports and bam, no money spent on an un-needed media card, and I have a clean, sweet running computer. This Dell was on the verge of being submerged in the lake out front. J amazes me. How does a kid who can't get up for school, can't cook or wash clothing suddenly turn into Techno Man, cape and all, when gadgetry is put in his hands. He has been doing this since he was 15, built his first computer at 17. When he was talking me through the drivers he sounded like a grown man with infinite knowledge. He said, "Ma, this is what I do". Yes this is what he does and I am beaming with pride.
