I just checked and the NZ version is only a mere $5839.00 so I should be able to buy them here and become a Gazionalaire in no time at all.

This isn't the first time they have screwed with the /docs etc etc . A couple of updates ago I had a spate of calls from people who had lost their whole home directories and I lost mine too. It was easily found microosoft had just decided to rename all the bloody computers to \desktop\abcd1213 but it was the time taken to fix microsofts screwups. That they don't pay you for. And this time they the Docs/pictures are gone for good. Not good for some of my elderly customers who lost some pictures and Docs that are irreplaceable. And when you say Backup they think you mean reverse the bloody Car. Microsoft have got to watch what they are doing. Because a simple date error causes so much pain and distress.
Having tried this crap win 8, 32 and 64 bit versions, the 32 bit blue screened instantly, and the 64 bit ver hangs whilst it does something or other but cpu usage peaks at 99% on both cores and temps are close to burning hot. This on a machine that happily runs win 7 both 64 and 32 bit. So yep it's time for a dogs vomit and Ballmer and co obliged.
That sets us 'oldies' apart from the disposal generation All my 10 year old tv's have a computer (P4) hooked up to them all networked with terabyte drives all over works great. And I cant afford to buy new stuff. But i did put it out that I was interested in any broken Laptops from friends and out of all I have collected, I now have 3 working ones. so there are ways around getting newer tech. and if you need to find out how to take it to bits and you are fine with handling fragile and breakable equiptment then it's fun, and you also learn something.
Well I had an old Dell 3 gig Hyper threading cpu (socket 478) with a gig of ddr 400 ram and a ATI 9800 AIW pro 128 meg video card give me a windows 7 rating of 3.2, and ran smoother than XP which just seemed to hesitate and it's I now have a dual core cpu Laptop running 7 and it's way smoother than XP The best thing they built into Win 7 was the ability to handle multi core chips. ANd I to have a shed full of 'old' computers mainly P4's and Athalon 's and X2's so may have to buy a coupla dozen beers, and have a sort out and see what sort of a frankenstien I can build.
Maybe it's all for the better. Because what will happen if we find an intelligent life filled planet?? Those same thugs who spend $600mil-60 billion, will then want to find a way to get to where they are,under the flag of Humanising them. See then there will be even more $$$$ for Bombs and new technology like lasers and stuff.
Being highly suspicious of anything that wants to install automatically turn it off, and look what I found waiting to be installed
It's a pre requisite to installing the service pack So what does it do anyone got any idea's, the website don't really help.
There you go the US we'll get him sooner or later
Federal Criminal Lawyer, Douglas C. McNabb, points out that a U.S. extradition law between Sweden and the U.S., pursuant to the article 6 of the supplement to the extradition treaty between the U.S. and Sweden, can assure Assange's extradition to the U.S.
Sweden can transfer Assange to the U.S. to stand trail for any U.S. federal criminal charges before he faces charges for sexual offences in Sweden. If convicted, Assange could also serve his full sentence in the US, before ever facing the alleged charges in Sweden. This law does not exist in the UK.
Which basically means if the swedes get him to Sweden then he will be handed over to the Yanks even before they interrogate him on these 'charges'
either way safe is NOT a word I would use in conjunction with anything made in china.
Look at their toys Still have lead paint, thousands of times above the legal limit and little bits that fall off and choke the children. watch the car one and tell me you would even want to get into one.
So when they stop for no reason, or just catch fire ooppss you forgot to plug your car in to the net for the usual round of updates. Or maybe they will use the same kind of Windows 7 battery controller that has been killing laptop batteries all over the place.
Ahhhhh a beer to drink while you watch the car burn
Then WHO cares what the vendors/ripoff artists charge I have a flash 3g phone but i only use it for Calls and texts Much to the disgust of my carrier who tried to get me to use mobile data yada yada yada And like I told him the day the cell phone gives me my morning coffee/ blowjob then i'll ise but until then l I'll just stick to the use it was designed for, tell them that and they will soon pull thier heads in.. But you in England well your screwed everytime you do anything. CCtv Politicians that look like they just crawled out of kindy and policies to match . And telco's who rip you off every day
And i lived in England for 15years Iam so glad I got out.
Did Not the Sweses say that they would defer their case to the Americans. Therefore If I was him I would also fight any attempt to get him to a country that has said it will give him up to the Yanks. Won't do much for the Swede's name but they would finally have this thorn in their side gone without an embarrasing trial.
Why oh Why do MShaft have to keep supporting that turkey IE6 when even the Crap OS that premiered it has long since gone to the big black hole in cyberspace.. Oh thats right Mshaft Could Not write anything that was not crap for years and I hate to say after even using IE9 things havn't changed all they have done now is make a Blue skinned Opera/Chrome anything with the Tabs in the wrong place!
And you wonder why it freezes.... try running a decent computer then you can moan about freezes but with the POS you are running it's a wonder win98 don't make it freeze
Bloody moaner uses crap and blames the software writers for his problems
and if you do not know how to back up your e-mail in Mozilla then maybe you should follow these few simple instructions
1 shut down your computer
2 unplug all the wires
3 throw the whole lot in the garbage.
then maybe we will not have to listen to your moaning when you cant see a web page or get your e-mail
"Justice Department officials have declined to comment on their plans, but Attorney General Eric Holder said earlier this week that his agency is doing everything it can to take Assange down."
Hmm so I take it that when the prosecution fails the assassins will be out in force....
Cant the Yanks just accept that they have been Caught out here and ...
The horse has bolted
But it is amusing to listen to all the old wrinkly american politicians getting all het up over this.. It must be the one thing thats finally woken some of the up from the stupor they are in
@joe the annoying
Who has 8 to 9 hours to try to setup a operating system that hides everything ?? I installed Ubuntu 10.04 spent 2 days trying to change the screen resolutioon from the fucking useless 1024x768 to something that would render properly on my widescreen laptop, like 1200x800 but it was so well hidden that out came a Win 7 disk and off Ubuntu went to the great blackhole in the sky, and within 1.5 hours I had a fully working easily configurable OS and none of the Bullshit that Ubuntu/Linux puts you thru..
I also have better things to do with my time than to fight a fucking OS for hours to get it going.. So Ubuntu getrs a HUGE fail from me until they make it easier to configure and that will never happen cos the linux fanbois have no life so will happily waste all day to get an os working , me i'll take my missus to the beach
Now I await the Flaming i'll read it when i get back from the beach
Ill run wikileaks for you and would take the greatest pleasure in taking it to the people from the land of the Paranoid and Insane...
I live in NZ Close to AUS
I never been to sweden
never the US of insanity
never been convicted of a serious crime but they will make my pot smoking a national outrage
All just because you asked a question
how decent and honest are you???
and that Assholes slammed shut , the hands flew to cover said assholes and the mouths did open in a terrible scream
FUCK THEY CAUGHT US!!!!
Actually why not just get the rest of the world to tell em to go screw em selves and refuse to hear any cases and refuse to abide by any useless american bullshit ruling that comes out of the patents court then the dumb yanks would be on thier own and tecnology would get better and cheaper because there would be more $$$$ for R&D and NONE for the greedy fucking patent lawyers................
They wont show a tit on tv but these insidious pat downs have got to be givethem a false sense of security and power...
And those who show how much power they seem to have actually have none, and are probably sad people who go home and stand in the shower for hours on end and drink heavily at the thought of going back to work for the great democracy that is the Paranoid states of Insania the USA
A granade cos the wiki leaks guy may need one after making the whole of the us government do the same thing for the first time in history ..... SHIT them selves HAHAHAHAHA
