Got my copy!

#1
Well my OEM copy got delivered to me here at work today.

Rather uninspriring white OEM sleeve with a clear DVD case and the disk positioned upside down so it looked fancy through the box. Booklet only highlights the features with pretty pictures so not much use :p

I'll be reinstalling it tonight just incase there are differences between the torrent version and this copy.

Well, I was thinking about ordering from OCUK, but thought I'd give the MS competition a go.... small chance of winning Vista and Office, but nothing to lose if I'm not the lucky one. :D

Nope, we just cut them off. Passports will be required to cross the US Canada border effective this month. No more free rides for our northern colony.

Only air travel is affected by the new passport law until around 2008.

Beginning January 23, 2007, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling by air between the United States and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda will be required to present a valid passport, Air NEXUS card, or U.S. Coast Guard Merchant Mariner Document, or an Alien Registration Card, Form I-551, if applicable.

As early as January 1, 2008, ALL persons, including U.S. citizens, traveling between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Bermuda by land or sea (including ferries), may be required to present a valid passport or other documents as determined by the Department of Homeland Security. While recent legislative changes permit a later deadline, the Departments of State and Homeland Security are working to meet all requirements as soon as possible. Ample advance notice will be provided to enable the public to obtain passports or passport cards for land/sea entries.

Oh, I'm sorry...

Not if you live in Europe or anywhere else outside the good old U$ of A.
(including Canada)

Forgive my ignorance, I am from Holland (you know: in Europe, part of the world next to (former) Russia?), a small country just above Belgium, so how could I know..:squareeye
