Oh it's windows, I don't know anything about that.
My answer to everything, Substitute OSX, Android, whatever. I then offer to install Linux instead - they usually run away.
This is exactly why I use Linux, and recommend it to everyone. Not that it's any better, but there are far more ways for it to be entertaining. I am still looking for the 'random' plugin for Grub, so that I can't predict which of the several versions of Linux on my disks it will load - once I find it I will install it on all my client's machines. No one wants computers to become as predictable as journalists, after all.

I like free stuff. I'm quite happy if someone else pays for it. That our lords and masters are not clever enough to write tax laws that don't have legal loopholes is quite OK with me. All strength to your arm Google (and thanks for the free search, free docs, free email, free calendar, etc.,etc..)

But it's only for Yanks!
At the moment only Yanks can get an I-Card. Perhaps they have more trouble with their identity than the rest of us.
