                       I'm wondering if anybody can help me
                       with a problem I'm having on my
                       computer at work. I recently upgraded to
                       Windows 95 from Windows 3.1416, and
                       I've noticed that when I running
                       WordWanker Version (which I
                       upgraded from in conjunction
                       with FaxBuddy! Version,
                       everything works fine for about the first 25
                       minutes, but then if I try to type a
                       subordinating conjunction followed by any
                       form of the verb foment, the keyboard
                       locks up permanently and the hard drive
                       makes a whimpering sound and all current
                       data is erased, including data in computers
                       several cubicles away. I have tried
                       everything, including reformatting my hard
                       drive and exorcism. Please help!

                       I had exactly the same problem, and after
                       a lot of trial and error I found out that if
                       you click on the Windows Control Panel,
                       then on Command Center, then on Reset
                       Variables, then on Establish New
                       Parameters, then on Define Standards,
                       then on Modify Criteria, then on
                       Effectuate Paradigms, then on the little
                       icon that says Do Not Ever Click On This
                       Little Icon, then go down to the box that
                       says Enter New Value, and type in 2038,
                       you will still have the same problem. This
                       is why I started using heroin.
