    My mother has struck again with the computer. She's managed to lose the file that had all our financial records for the past three years. When asked about a back-up she said 'I don't do things like that, it means we have loads of discs all over the place and it's untidy' *sigh* Luckily, we still have all the paper records so I now have to set up aa new spreadsheet and re-do three years of work. It has to be on Excel as well as that's the only programme that my mother would ever consider using and I can never remember all the bloody formulae for the columns so I end up with a total of yogurt at the bottom.
    Wish Kit was here, last time I had to do something like this he took the piss until I laughed the whole way through it :(

    I've started drinking yerba mate. Has more caffeine than coffee and it works differently. Sort of like a muscle relaxant. Groovy. Makes me lose my sense of time. Wicked. I haven't been this relaxed for ages if ever. Nice.

    @Silvery, so did you fire her?

    In other news:

    I received the keys to my apartment today :banana: Will spend the next weeks painting the walls, finishing the floor and moving in furniture. :grin: It's only a single 4m by 3m room with a separate bathroom, but that's large enough for me

    I'm a little confused why you would go with Vista when upgrading OS. Windows 7 is the latest and from all accounts is better than Vista.

    +1! Windows 7 is MUCH better. Nicer to use and doesn't get sulky and move things if it wants attention!

    I agree 7 is so much better. It is my belief that Vista was spawn from the depth of hell and released only to make humanity miserable and making little children cry. Plus it might give you syphilis. I also heard Vista was responsible for Apartheid, 9/11, the bubonic plague, and Simple Plan -- all prime example of humanity's worst.

    It was invented by the SS and the plans for it were held in a government safe until Bill Gates bribed them and started selling it

    If Vista is so terrible, then how low do rate Windows ME?

    [​IMG] I actually got on alright with millenium edition :rolling:

    Until my hard drive self destructed of course.

    Was a nice little laptop that, was devoted to the IE games and modding. All I had on it.

    That and stories and the ruleset I made. Shame I only recovered a fraction of them.

    It gave it's swansong when I turned it on to make backups :doh:

    Bah, I am getting sick, which is probably why I am using all these silly medical analogies.

    Yup Win 7 is better than Vista, just don't settle for the starter kit... unless you know it's what you only need.

    Vista was free and I could pay that much! Got to get 7 someday though. The new replacement machine came with Vista + drivers so using that with my reload and setup. Got my XP drive in and things moved and formated it. Did everything right except I seem to have somehow lost about half my music. I can't replace a lot of it so am bummed a bit. To be truthful I was so pissed Joe (my dog) came running in to help me take on whatever I was cussing at. Love that idiot dog.
