Yesterday the 8th of February, 2003 was the first anniversary of my current computer. Somehow I feel neglected - I have not seen all the capabilites of this computer: - I have never seen a BSOD, never had it crash and only went into SAFE mode once - just to see if I knew how to do it! - I have not had to "repair reinstall", "reformat" or any of that crap - oh yeah - I have used System Restore on a few (very few) occasions - only because I struck a key in a drunken stupor and knew not which key I struck and I wanted to return things without sobering up! p ) - For some reason, it is just as fast as it was the day after I got it and installed NSW - which I know slows things down and is a resource hog etc - but it really isn't any slower now than it was after I initially installed it (NSW)! So go ahead and insult me for not trying every tweak that comes along, not trying every Beta and also not installing all the latest video drivers etc (because I don't have a problem with my old ones) - I just thought a year was pretty good without a "repair" or "reformat" and I am still happy with the system! You watch - she'll crash as soon as I post this!
