    Yo, Bob !!
    Sorry to hear that the lightning blew up your **** !!
    To beat the lightning and other computer demons, I use my ISP's (COX CABLE) e-mail system, which is NOT stored in my computer, but remains accessible by supplying the UserName and Password on any computer, anywhere, as long as there's an internet connection.
    Also, a Google e-mail account allows the same type of freedom from electrical disasters and hard-drive crashes.
    I use the COX account for e-mail --- it's the best I've ever found.
    We have an upgraded HP desktop, and an upgraded DELL desktop, both running Windows 10 (ugh !), and an HP Chromebook that we use when traveling.

    Anyways, if your Solid-State drive survived, you should be able to pop it into a new machine and be good to go.
    If you were happy with your blown-up rig, you MAY wanna just replace the motherboard.
    I'm SURE you can find one on E-bay that will work just fine -- and for CHEAP !!
    Anyways, I'll shoot you an e-mail ASAP.

    Hey, Chuck... Bob Dunk here. I had lightening strike on the pole out front last week and it took out my two computers. Send me an email so I have yours.. Lost all my biz and friend emails. The Solid State HD I had in the Lap Top survived, but the motherboard blew.

    Bought a new Dell Laptop, a cheap one for 250 bucks to hold me over and I have the cable and software to transfer info, but I'll be damned if I can find my email program. I was using Windows Live email and liked it..
