    My very best good vibrations aimed directly at Mrs. Ned (and my second best to you, brother); may you both see this through successfully and the road to full recovery be short and sweet.

    Thanks for all the kind words folks

    I'll pass them on to Mrs Slider. I'm sure all will work out fine, but it's still a worrying time for us. The Doctors tell us that Mrs Slider should be good as new in about a month. In the meantime, I'm gonna be a little busier at home than I normally am. Now, does anyone no how to work an iron (clothes variety, not the golfing variety )

    You guys really are the best.

    well, its got to be similar to operating and building a computer!

    first, you plug it in! DOH!

    the you boot it up by turning the on/off switch to on.

    once you boot it, you must wait a couple minutes before it boots!

    careful not to touch the bottom of the iron, its very similar to sticking your finger in a delta fan! (who needs fan guards! )

    last tip, if you clothes start smoking, or get burn holes, this is very similar to having a bad cdrw burn, as the final product will be useless, except for a coaster, or wax buffing rag! (wax on, wax off! )

    hey ned, if you need anymore advice on an iron, just let me know!

    as you can see, i am very well versed!

    HECK, I PROBABLY COULDNT EVEN FIND THE IRON!

    Don't forget the distilled water and water-wetter in your iron!

    I hope for a successful operation and a speedy recovery, Ned.

    The above only applies if you have a Water-cooled Iron... if you do not, then you'll need to UPGRADE!!!

    Also, remember that 'Overclocking' your iron leads to corruption of the Fabric Data... avoid it unless you are willing to run the inherent risks! It is not manufacturer supported... but if you DO customize your ironing rig, send us some Pics!

    I can understand what you are going through, Ned, and I feel for you.

    My wife is having one of those routine yet complicated surguries in June ... they expect about an eight week and fairly difficult recovery ... even though I know my wife has the best care, I still am dreadfully worried, as I am sure you are. I have made plans to be a stay-at-home dad during her recovery and have hired a full time nanny / maid. My attitude is to make her recovery time go as well as it can go during a difficult time.

    I wish you and you wife the best of luck ... I'll be right there with you.
