Well I'm doing it anyway and it's taking fucking loooooooong. God damn computer shit. Just sitting on the internet reading up on how to get it to work cause it never works as easy as they say. Pricks.

Thanks. Just waiting to go to the drug bar of Gravesend. I'm finally old enough. Ketamin all round gentlemen. My town has a problem with that drug.

Nearly installed. Fuck windows 7 and not allowing me to change my desktop background.

Your drug dealers ask for ID?

That's what you get for buying Windows 7 Starter Edition (or whatever the entry level flavour is called). What you should have done is pirated the next version up. Razz



Disclosure:



Housemate has a netbook running that version of Windows 7 and I've found it fine for everything we use that netbook for (browsing the internet, occasionally word processing (when I was revising)), and you can regedit a new background in for yourself (but it is too painful not to be considered a serious black mark against MS in my book).

Scored one of them for 150quid, eee and all. Dandy wee yolk alright. Any luck with linux? I'd only be able to boot something up with a disk handy, but no drive. Never could get the usb thing to work.
