CJP on MCL's MetroByte

   "What do you do when your computer only boots up in "safe mode."
      "Well," said Scott, as he looked across the desk at me, "with 30 seconds
      to spare, you call tech support and do a reinstall." This quick exchange
      occurred Monday, January 11, when a woman called in during the FAQ
      segment of the Metro Learning Channel's computer show "MetroByte."
      I've been a frequent guest on this show since July 1998. Originally
      hosted by Bobby Rivers, of "Good Day New York" morning show (and
      VH-1 v-jay) fame, it is now hosted by Scott Rigby, founder and president
      of Thoughtbubble. Ellyn Burke, Ph.D., director of the Panasonic
      Learning Lab, was also on hand to talk about this unique learning center.
      Its educational classes are supported by top-of-the- line technology.
      Though the lab is booked months in advance, Dr. Burke, who used to be
      a professional opera singer, will talk with anyone about this unique
      facility and its offerings.
