Well guys, I am degrading from Vista to XP. Assuming it goes well I should be back online tomorrow or even today, but I cannot be sure it will go well. Just to say if I apparently disappear that this is the reason. First thing I am doing once XP is working is getting Firefox and making sure this is a bookmark - but if something gets messed up it could take a few days.
So cya when I get back. Hopefully that will be 24 hours, but it may not be - for fickle is the way of the computer.
