but Win XP??


heh .. yeah.  It still works for what I want to do.  I really believe that if it works, don't fix it.  

I recently got a new laptop for myself, preloaded with Windows 8.  O.M.G.  What a piece of junk!  TOTALLY unworkable for a laptop.  While I am used to the swiping and tiles on my cell phone, that philosophy does NOT work for a laptop!  And how they arranged the tiles??  Completely not understandable.  Very frustrating .. and I'm not computer illiterate, either!   I returned to Costco (they're fantastic about returns!).  The return clerk said they had been getting TONS of returns of the Windows 8 laptops.  People hate it.

OTOH, Mr. Pirate is really itching to build me a new, faster machine, which he'll put Windows 7 on and then get the free upgrade to Windows 10.  He does like to acquire new toys.  :-)

No ads for me.  I guess I'd rather have no ads than a like button?

Just don't tell AdBlock Lite to go into Full mode...sigh...it breaks the reply box like AdBlock Plus...

I get a few ads with Lite..in the old forum I get a banner...

haven't figured out if I get any other ads on other sites.
