    #4 If I do a factory re-install fro Windows XP will I be albe to download SP1, SP2, SP3 from Microsoft ( yes, look for the network versions which will be 300 to 500 Megs down load those before you do the re-install and it will go much easier )

    November's totals were 54 items and 55 pounds of food. Add that to October's donation – and we're up to 90 items at 95 pounds! In December, we will pass my initial target of 100 items, but I would love to see us hit John Henderson's challenge of 200 items! I will be collecting our final donation at our December KIPCUG meeting on Dec 11th – (that's the 2nd Tuesday!) 

    I will also be at Susan's Excel SIG (Monday, 12/3) & Mark's Internet SIG (Monday, 12/10) - if you want to bring items then. THANK YOU to all who donated!

    Thanks to everyone who brought in canned goods for October. We had 36 items totaling 40 pounds of food. John Henderson challenged us to a new goal of 200 canned goods. We have our November and December meetings to meet that goal. We are very lucky to have good food on our tables, so let's spread that wealth!
