Yep, they are annoying, but if in the right mood, it can be fun, since I have much time on my hands, and it is not my phone call..... ;D

PC Help / Re: Vista ultimate 64bit...
« Last post by Baron on Today at 11:05 AM »
As for XP, I found it pretty stable, and didn't have to reinstall that much.
Then along came Vista (yeah I know) and found that to be much better, so dropped XP in favour of it.
But that's just me....

 :lh: I am hanging to by my finger nails, to see what happens too.
If it works out ok, I will hang on for a bit longer...........if it doesn't, then I shall just let go............. ;D

Phun / The 5 year old girl.....
« Last post by Baron on Today at 11:02 AM »
Awwww, how sweet and restores my faith in humans....... ;D

 A  young family moved into a house next door to an empty plot. One   day,  a gang of building workers turned up to start building on the   plot.
   
  The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally  took an interest in   all the activity going on next door and started talking with the workers.
   
  She hung  around and eventually the builders, all with   hearts of gold, more or less adopted the little girl as a sort of project   mascot. They   chatted with her, let  her sit with them while they   had tea and   lunch                breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her  feel   important.
   
  They even gave the child her very own hard hat and gloves, which thrilled her   immensely.
   
  At  the end of the first week, the smiling builders presented her with   a   pay envelope - containing $10 in 50c coins. The little girl   took her   'pay' home to her mother who suggested that they take   the money to   the bank the next day to open a savings  account.
   
  At the bank, the female cashier was tickled pink listening to   the little girl  telling her about her 'work' on the building site and   the fact she had a 'pay packet'.
 
  'You  must have worked very hard to earn all this', said the cashier.
   
  The little girl proudly replied, 'Yes, I worked every day with   Steve and Wayne and Mike. We're building a big house.'
   
  'My goodness gracious,' said the cashier, 'And will you be working on the   house again next week?'
 
  The  child thought for a moment. Then she said seriously:

                     
  'I think  so. Provided those wankers at Boral deliver the   f*****g  bricks on  time.'

I liked XP, but didn't enjoy having to reinstall the thing, every few days...

I'm kinda glad I'll likely stiff, before the full effects of our Brexicution get fully felt.

The one I liked was when the wazzock started with "This is Microsoft's Windows department.".

"It's not, is it?"

"What do you mean?"

"Microsoft doesn't have a Windows department"

"Of course it does"

"You're a lying piece of shit who's trying to scam me. As it happens, I've kept you on the line for long enough to trace your call. Expect a visit from your local police, soon"

Yep, now and again I get an email like that, and just delete them.
However I now get new (to me) phone calls, by a robo voice, saying (one from BT Tech, and another from my ISP) saying that I have committed some sin, and that my internet will be shut down in 48 hours, and to phone this number to stop this from happening........yeah right.
 Another one is from HMRC to tell me there is a file out on me, and that I am going to be arrested............still waiting.... ;D

Then there is the probably Indian ones phoning me to take part in a survey, and played along once, but when they ask for me I just say 'I am dead' and put the phone down.
Trouble is that when I moved house about 3 years ago, only about 150 yards up the road, I took my Wightfibre phone number with me, to save me a lot of hassle informing everyone and the local fish, that my phone number has changed.
Changing emails was bad enough.
Anyway, if I continue with the conversation sometimes, they ask me if I am Mr xxxxxxx and live at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx I say 'No' I have moved house.
They ask me what my address is now, and I just say 'No chance you silly twat', and again put the phone down.
Or they say 'I am Alan', and I just reply 'No you are not, you are really Guptah !'
We go back and forth with this, and he gets pissed off and puts the phone down.
Me: back to watching youtube again.... ;D

Hey Caspie and meself.........welcome back to the fold, and long time no type !  ;D

Yup, I miss XP (have the XP Corp Pro version from RSU), and of course still have the install disc.

Perhaps one of these days, probably a miserable wet and windy one, I might just try and install it on a spare empty drive, and see what happens.
I will probably come across the same problem when I install Vista, which is lack of drivers, and my brain cell couldn't cope on trying to get some to install.........especially a LAN driver for this current motherboard.

As for W10, for me it worked perfectly until last December +/- a month or so, when it got totally screwed up after some MS updates, and don;t know which ones dun it.
I still have it installed, but only boot it up every few months just to update MS thingies and any software that is out of date.

A Brexitologist eh, that's a new name for me, and a little bit kinder too.......... ;D
