Gubbed!  lol:

Give the man a coconut, Banghead Did some more research on the OEM disks and they appear to be build specific so unless my email to Compaq/HP bears fruit (about as much chance of that as there is of BM setting up a slate for us all I suspect  whistle: ) I'm seeing if any of the guys I know still have XP MCE  disks anywhere.

And before anyone says anything I was nice and police in my message to them (don't look so surprised you cheeky sods  lol: )

Police???  eeek:

Jeez! You really do read all this shite  noooo:


I just read what I thought it said.
I used to have a handle on life but it broke.

Meant polite  redface: was listening to the news as I was typing.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Screw it, I'm installing Ubuntu. Apparently installing Wine as well should allow me to use most of my software.  scared2:

Its a temporary measure until I can get a hold of an XP disk, the alternative is a laptop shaped paperweight.

Well the keyboard, trackpad and wireless are back up again so its a good sign so far. Unfortunately nobody can remember the bloody password for the home hub.  Banghead

Wine is an emulation program you one track mind pisshead  lol:

Probably will do once I'm working again but for now it isn't an option.
