The Force is with me!

Death Star

I feared the worst!The Death Star has killed my computer to death!

Windows offered me an update for their media player:'IMPORTANT', it said. I use media player quite a lot, so I installed it. No problems. Windows shuts down after installation , then re-boots.

Only it didn't. Nothing. Jack Shit! So I phoned Obe Wan up.

Obe Wan

Obe Wan came round, armed with lap-top and all sorts of info from the 'net....Did anything work? No!

Aaahh well,we/he re-installs Vista, the whole shooting match!

Amazingly, when Vista was re-installed, 90% of my files had been saved as 'Windows Old'.Obe Wan was able to transfer them across to the new files.






Yoda

I'm sure this little fellow was helping!

Obe Wan will be back next week to tidy things up, and hopefully find my Tiger Woods golf game!



In the meantime, I'm off for a read!

Nothing to do with this crappy webpage, but y'all must go take a look at this. You need sound, and to wait about 30 seconds.

Seen it ages ago Vic!

Sorry, the window won't open big enough for you to appreciate it. It's better to copy this:

and paste it into the address bar. Click on "GO", and it will get you away from John's page. Aw HELL!
