there is NO migration path from XP to 7
MS built it that way....on purpose.
Your only "migration" is to install 7 on a new drive and manually move all your shite over to the new drive from the XP drive.
Going from XP to Vista to 7 is / was not a path either.
at least my computer isn't screwed
glad i saved a copy of the original
Now where can i repost it?
Re: writing some proper articles next week?
There aren't nearly enough pictures to just look at pictures, so of course we HAVE to read.
More Playmobil please.
Re: nice pun :)
you obviously saw that before i did, so thank you for saving my vision.
Re: computing the value of computing
Well, if that's the case, congressmen is way too long.
How does it clap its hands?
very nicely done
Go ahead, you deserve one (or more),
I need a new keyboard now.
Re: Ha, the pitfalls of the cloud-based strategy
With a bit of foreskin you could have been well ahead of the problem.
Sorry, getting my coat now.
the money is there
It's just all being funneled into executive salaries for a bunch of greedy whinger who complain that users are "filling the pipes" and wonder even roll out the current levels of fibre to everyone. It's not they can't afford it; it's a conscious choice to screw the customer base.
Joli OS users seem largely unfussed
both of them?
No, you don't wear it; and hopefully you don't keep it in nature's pocket.
Well played that
I, for one
Welcome our new rock, paper, scissors overlords.
Fox - henhouse
Nothing more needs to be said.
missing the obligatory pronz reference
That's a lot of storage there.... wonder what the cost will be.
You might actually find it somewhere else after you've found the first occurrence.
we don't need to stinking VAT
What we need to do is get rid of all the imcompetent crooked politicians (wait, that's redundant).... Oh well.
we don't test for smell
Well, that's an obvious invitation to el Reg readers; to come up with an odor scale similar to buses, pools, bulgarian air bags, etc.

Somehow I don't think Palpatine will be pleased.
But does someone have an answer other than killing off 7/8 of the earth population and going back and living in caves?
First Ms. Bee
And then Mr. Bill
What's the world coming to?
part of the fabric of Wikipedia
Yes, the part that gets made into socks.
Wait a minute, I can get cockpills on the internet?
But the restrictions are not Amazon's doing. They are the direct result of the publishers....period.
It's called a trigger.
it's easy to tell it's from above
If it was from down under, you'd have seen its arse.
Sex in one bed?
Why use just one (bed, that is...)
Two alarms for me...one next to bed; t'other in the bathroom set to go off 5 minutes later. Wife at other end of house. Sex? What's that?
how much extra?
So, how much extra for the wankers in the cinema?
what could possibley go wrong?
Well, just about everything.
great series; please continue.
No FailBook for me, thank you
seriously, no. as the ad campaign said, "just say no".
for my 300W LED replacements....mogul base, of course.
the more detail the better
I wouldn't want my mini-me to come out looking like Jabba.
Where's that pack of reflective markers when you need them? Who actually remembers how to roll out a crease in a tape?
Thanks....lots of memories stored there.
thanks, nice article
As someone who grew up on Univac 49x and early 1100 series machines, it's nice to see where they are going and i always read your writeups about them. Cheers
I have long recommended a "none of the above"
With the proviso that when "none" is the winning vote; all the clowns in that catergory are then prohibited for further polluting the ballot for at least 10 years. It would rid the elections of a majority of idiots in a few short years and the parties; should they hope to survive; would be forced to put forth some truly viable candidates who aren't some fringe nutcase bought by whatever big business or lobbyist group wants to contol them.
The basic hollerith card was not the only one used in computing; nor was the teletype paper tape the only one used. you also have (as briefly noted) drum storage like Fastrand and FH432, etc. and really quitely stepped over the vast array of disk drives and the changes made (similar to the changes made in card sorters with tube and wire sensors for reading).
Too bad nothing about card punches, interpreters, collators, and etc.
I know this wasn't supposed to be a history book; so thanks!
who can possibly still think at this point that the people who created the financial crisis are actually knowledgeable and expert at what they're doing and not simply incompetent boobs not really qualified to give their opinion on a bacon sarnie on any given day?
Re: data is a plural word
Please send new keyboard. thx
take that old beer out of the back of your shed and pour some in a shallow tray and set in the garden. you will collect a surprising array of shelled and non-shelled slimy misbegots and can dispense with them right away.
