Dont mean to gush here but... Just been giving the platters some major spin time on the home boxen. Reinstalling some stuff, updating other stuff, trying some new heavy installs: Photoshop, Gimp, Corel, fresh VMWare, NIS LOL, finally updated to SP3 !! Lots of catch up with XP updates etc etc Major renovations. New snaps over old, old snaps over busted installs, boot from snap to snap and back. ( must be a song there somewhere ) Couple of blue screens. ( always had images as/if needed ..heh: as/if needed indeed !! ) I know; 1's & 0's, but, If there was software as a religion; I would worship at the altar of FDISR. Never turned a hair: did more than could be expected. LOL, the only problem is a dangerous sense of complacency Todd: come home now; you've made your point: all is forgiven. Pandlouk et al: please tell me its working well on W7 ??
