Off the Air

John has had a major crash. No, not him, his computer has gone pffft! So he might be off the net for a while.

After trying to update Vista a major fault occured, and now Windows wont even start up. His pet computer guru is working on the problem at the moment, so with a bit of luck he should be back on soon.


UPDATE: 16 Feb 08

Mrs. Ricardipus' Vista machine does my head in every time I try to use it. Where the *%&! did they hide all the menus?

I just bought a new laptop. but after hearing all the horror stories about Vista I tried to get one with XP installed. Everywhere, that's Dixons, PC World, Currys, Bytes & PC's, etc., only stocked ones with Vista! I had to order one off the net from Dell direct who not only installed XP but made it up to my specifications at a lot less that shop prices. The very day I received it John phoned me to tell me his computer had crashed. Vista? Bah!

Honey I really feel for you. What are your feelings about Vista after 6 months - or however long it's been?
I had a panic this morning when I could copy from Word but not paste onto Dashboard. Finally discovered I had to scroll up or down and all was well. Now my printer's US!

I can honestly say I've never heard a single GOOD word uttered about Vista & should I need to get a new laptop, will do what Keith did & order it with MY specifications, as opposed to Bill Sodding Gates, thank you very much!
Thanks for keeping Johns fans posted Keith & hopefully he'll be up & wheeling (can't be up & running can he? duh!) in the very near future.
