Has Gates got shares in Proctor & Gamble 'cos I can guarantee sales of Mr Sheen will rocket with all those grubby fingermarks just from the alpha male of the household even before the kids get a hold of it - ewwww! :evil:

The housemate can already get our laptop filthy just looking at the bloody screen and keeping his mitts firmly on the keyboard (he sneezes a lot and that's as far as I'm going... :roll: ). :evil: :evil:

I'm getting another PC soon but a touch-screen monitor will be surplus to requirements no matter how flaming wonderful 7 is :evil: :evil: :evil:

There's more to Windows 7 than the touch interface.

Unlike Vista, when I next get a PC I will b happy to have Windows 7 installed on it. Previously I specified that vista is to be remove and XP installed instead.

I don't know if you had the earlier version of Vista with all the problems Jason, but I've got it on my PC and love it. :)

I run Vista on my work PC - but XP on my home PC. I think if the PC is designed to work with Vista then your experience is a lot better. I actually quite like vista and my testing of Windows 7 beta makes me thing that 7 is actually what Vista should have been.

I tried Vista on my home PC but had problems with hibernation not working correctly. I suspect that this is down to slightly incompatible drivers.

I fisking HATE Vista, it sucks, sucks, sucks, ad infinitum.

Yesterday, I was walking to the minivan to go to the paintball field when one of the path stones tipped in the mucky wet sludge we call mud here. It has been the rainiest year on record. My left foot twisted and my right shoe caught in more mud and I fell down HARD on the next paving block hitting my upper shin about 6 inches below the knee. Oh what fun. my arms were full of stuff and I "fall down and go boom" So, now I have an 18 cm wide bruise and 7 cm tall on the front of my leg which sticks out about 1 1/2 cm. Had an ex-ray and no fracture, good news. and oh the joy, because when you have an accident other body parts are involved, so I hurt head to toe and cannot move without Wheee, Fun, pain.

I was unable to sleep til late from pain and missed the guy who showed up with his friends at 8:30 am instead of 11 am, which is All Over our Website!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*grumbles and mutters, why do I even have a bluidy website? Nobody takes a minute to look at it, they just call me at all hours and want me to "tell them all about us" Aargh, $100 a freaking year just to say "Hey, have you Seen our website yet?" to which they reply, "No, I saw the number on the google link and I just thought I would save time and call the number..." mutter, mutter, grumble, grumble Aargh*


So, when I call him to see what is wrong... he hits me with a load of Hot Headed, Very Angry Crap, about "Where Were You?" We went up the road to the other driveway and looked in the windows of that crummy shack, there was a tv on, we even walked all the way around the shack... to which I reply "That Shack is our House" and that "funny looking guy" whom you thought was giving you an odd look, is my husband. He thought you were turning around what with your ATV in the back end of your truck.

So, I am in pain, out $400 US and going to take some blasted pain pills and take a damn nap.

Yes, Pooh, I am whingeing again, but sometimes you have to. Besides, if you were out $400 US due to no real fault of your own and told what a crummy shack you live in, you might be stretched to whinge a bit too. in 7 years I have gotten used to the "crummy shack", but it hurts ones' feelings to be TOLD it is a crummy shack.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Poor Tina! (((Hugs))) Think purple. . . If it is any consolation, your misfortune made me smile . . . Which goes to prove that (a) I have a wicked streak, and (b) You conveyed humour in your posting. Which is good - isn't it? :twisted:
