Wondering About the Wonders of Technology

Did you get my email? someone asks. Uh, no. When did you send it? I reply.

Here's the deal. Several weeks ago, our little office (two computers) got new hardware outfitted with the Vista OS. My co-worker set up the configuration by which all of our files were transferred to our new network. It looked great.

But since then, I've had a few conversations like the one above. I've also noticed that some emails that have made it to my inbox have since disappeared. By using the magic of Google Desktop, I've been able to locate them. But I usually don't want things to start hiding from me. Certainly not emails. Of course, my bigger concern has to do with emails that never arrive at all.

Has anyone out there had this or a similar problem? Got any advice? Suggestions? (Yes, I've called the tech support at my ISP but haven't heard back from them yet).

Frank, Microsoft is no longer selling XP. You're stuck brother.

I think we may have made a break through yesterday. The problem areas seem to have gotten better anyway.
