Nope - either keeping it as a stand by or more likely, giving it to a mate
of mine who's comp is significantly underpowered, under-Xp-ed (Win98) and -
well, I've passed on a few things to boost what he has. (He even had a
CHINESE keyboard given him when he got the comp, F.G.S. !) I'll be passing
on a graphics card too as I've upgraded that today.
The new HD - no, I really wish to make the new much larger HD the main,
I haven't got it yet, and am at present trying to gird my loins as it when
if ever, and telling myself "You don't sodden NEED it, you pillock !" but
this is my vice, I suppose - don't drink (much anyways - several with the
lads at weekends) don't gamble (at all) so.....
I'd like to know if there was a way I could kind of "warn Microsoft in
advance" as it where.....
