I owe an apology
« on: 30 September 2014, 22:55:23 »

I threw a hissy fit a while back , and said I am out of here ,
Famous last words but one * , I should have said ďfor a time ď,
Indeed my humour had run dry , and I was tetchy . spelt correctly
certainly not the auto suggested Techie ,
So sorry guys for my Prima Dona post ,
And thanks Tomas for your email ,
Sure I was overtired at the time , couldnít figure out why some posts were
for registered members only , (still cant ) for me it seemed like gossip over the garden fence , ( for the older members ref, Andy Capsís Florrie  LOL )

so thanks guys for having me back ? ,
BTW , late as ever I am just upgrading from  Xp to 7  ,
I have been given a 2012  Dell puter , with embedded 7 home prem .
still canít see its advantage , but keeping old (4 years ) home built puter running Xp Pro ,with the reg hack , and still getting security updates  , 500Mb + since April ,
anyway had to smile at the Dell's password , I know the guy is a ardent football club supporter , He He ,

So I move to 7 just when 9 is on the horizon , as somebody said you will be late for your own funeral , indeed hopefully  ;) ,

*My last words  could be I told them I was ill , Nurse Nurse itís happening again ,
Or most likely F**k Microsoft for the pain of   3.1 to 7 , all those beer drinking hours wasted , :D

thanks guys,
linux , been there , and still getting head aches !
Heck computers should be in the white goods list, same as fridges and cookers,
I pick up my land line phone and dial a number ,
and hopefully get connected , it doesn't need numerous updates,AV .firewall etc
same as my gas cooker on reg 5 ,  if it needed an update I would now be underweight  :o
Indeed I worry about how can you build a sustainable  industry built on fear ,
 :D just had a letter from age concern, "what if you die " (funeral insurance
if I die would I give a F*Ck anyway  , more interest in the local escort girl
that gives discount for pensioners   lol:1,

Windows is getting updated faster than Firefox ,  win 7 ? , still not impressed,
then I wasn't when xp first came out , I reverted back to M.E. for a while  :D
maybe it's me a bit of a Luddite , still don't have a cell phone or a TV ,
and drive a tax free 40 year old car ,but for the first time I now have central heating ,
 lol:1 ,
 no idea what is " Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 2" ???
but I do agree with Einstein's theory of relativity ,

anyway back on my (truly ) humble  apology , i have been stressed to my max for the past year, also haven't had a holiday for 15 years , ( to busy )
at last having taken stock of where the hell am I going ,
and I can see a light at the end of the tunnel , ( probably an express train coming the other way  :D )
I hope to be back this autumn , "titter yea not " I  have a million and one questions about win 7 64 bit , as I have 7 premium & Pro legit licences for both ,
so might be saying goodbye faithful XP , and hello to 7 this winter ,

Best Regards
Roco

Moi a masochist ? , I thought that term was reserved for  for Vista users  ;).
I actually liked M.E. ( it had picture viewer ) I had few problems with it
after driver issues got sorted ,
Win 7 ? very pretty , but why are all the system managements so hard to find ?
surely add & remove programs  should have it's own icon in control panel,
still it's early days for me , I am guess  I will learn to love 7 , just as Win 10 comes out  :D ,
I still think 8's one size fits all was it's biggest mistake , and touch screen led the pack  for office or home use ,  who wants to poke the 32 inch monitor with chip or burger soaked fingers ? , and having to get of the computer chair & get your feet of the table to do so ,
I refuse to use my local doctors touch screen log in,  the place is full of sick folk !
and the IPA bottle is always empty, and I don't see the need to supply and wear
disposable  gloves , just to book an appointment , anyway wear the protective gloves
then remove them , the firstione is easy how then do you remove the other ?

Yeah I come from medical research background,  anyway I would rather cough and sneeze over the receptionist  , that way a cure would be found faster  lol:1
"Not " don't get me started on cures , it's not in the interest of big money pharma's
or their share holders , and it would make thousands of chuggers unemployed and back selling the big issue ,
 lol:1 maybe I shouldn't have come back  :D

Thanks Steve
I still got the 7 computer in the spare bedroom floor ?
( Oh what a sad life I lead a  bl**dy computer in the spare bedroom,)
are my powers waning  ? "I can "just" remember when back ups were essential etc "
indeed things were better in the good old days  or is that just false memory ?,
indeed what a amazing summer , I ended up at the docs with dehydration, and a 
NHS advice leaflet for  the elderly in high temperatures, from  his cute receptionist, I nearly said F.U. , but then thought if I was that lucky  ,
