I was referring to previous years, but I don't expect this year to be any different!

Anyway, 'tis better to give than receive so I'd better take my Scrooge hat off now.

Sounds a bit like the electrical shop with the spotty fresh out of high school individual who comes up and says can I help you sir? (to which I am thinking eerrrrr you don't look as if you can but.......) yeah does the whatever dada come with HDMI DVI and VGA sockets and you get that have you just arrived from the planet Zod look! (when in fact you have just landed on the planet Zod)

Kill the HP welcome/poppup screen. It annoys me.
When I boot my computer, (a HP) , screen pops up, (picture of a hand and HP.) I don't want that. It annoys me. It is not necessary. I want to kill it. I don't want to hear how difficult it is, to remove. Merely, I want it not. mmm, someone must know how to get rid of it.
