After that,4 years ago,I bought a Toshiba laptop with Windows 7,which was perfect for me then.Unfortunately,it was stolen after 1.5 years.
Finally,I bought this one.I think I managed to install Server 2008 (which is unbelievable,because it shares the same kernel as Vista and our little culprit gives BSODs 0x0000001E (0xFFFFFFFC00000005,0xFFFFF800014B1CC7,0x0000000000000000,0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF) for SP1).SP2 gives different code at second parameter.
Anyway,I see that the best machines I had ever had are the two latest ones.


Let's see an essay about computers in schools:




In recent years computers have made their appearance in many classrooms.Students are not only taught how to operate computers but they also use them as learning tools for other subjects.While many people believe that they can eventually replace teachers,there are others who insist that the teacher can offer things that a piece of electronic equipment cannot.
Those in favour of computers say that computers provide students with the opportunity to progress at their own pace.Strong students do not have to be held up by the slower students and slower students can do extra practice in areas where they have difficulties.In addition,CD-ROM,multi-media and other technological innovations are exciting and can provide more information than any teacher can possibly give.
On the other hand,there are people who believe that learning takes place best in a social setting.They say that a computer cannot provide this.Furthermore,teachers can help students by giving encouragement and praise and they can help solve problems through discussions.
Finally,while computers do have a remarkable place in the classroom and can provide a great deal of information,others feel that the personal contact with a teacher cannot be replaced.





How does it seem? I had to translate everything!

Seems fine to me , i wish computers were around when i was in school , not a fan of teacher student interactions to be honest , especially when they never heard the term mouthwash and are in your face screaming at you .

My position is and was, computers are a tool whether in or out of a class room.
In a classroom they are used to aid the teach to teach and the students to learn.

Others that think a computer can replace a teacher in my mind are wrong in their thinking.

I could of really used one for homework , what a nightmare that was.

I can't even think how to use a hunt and peck on a keyboard. It' would take forever to get anything done.
I'm no speed demon but I can type about 30 WPM.

Read my other essay (it's about today's teenagers) :

It seems that teenagers are spending less time with friends these days. It is very important for teenagers to find a balance between socialising and the other demands they have on their time.
On the one hand,young people may feel that they have little time for a social life.To begin with,teenagers have to work extremely hard at school in order to find a good job or get into university. What is more,they may work,or spend a lot of time on the internet,which can isolate them from their friends.
On the other hand,relaxing with friends should be a priority.It is important to spend time with people whose experiences are similar to our own.For example,our friends understand our point of view and usually feel the same as we do.Spending time with friends can help teenagers solve their problems,reduce stress and is a great way to have fun.
All in all,it is clear that today's teenagers lead busy lives.However,I believe it is a mistake for them to neglect their friends.




How is it? I hope you like it

I am also a peck typer (aka) two finger , surprisingly i can move pretty darn fast .


VU , no need to ask "how is it" because it's what you believe , never change based on what others think , do what you feel is right and always be yourself.

I have learned that you only have a few or even just one real friend, many people claim to have a lot of friends but are they truly what one would consider true friends.

I can't tell you how many what i thought were true friends but turned out to be anything but that i eventually cut all ties with .

Throughout life you will know many people that you may consider a friend but very very few will end up being real friends , you know you have a real friend when they are still around through thick and thin and support you through your most difficult times.

As far as kids of today (i'm not a fan to be honest), never cared for the disrespect and it's all about me attitudes of many in todays generation.

Read another one whose topic is about the positive and negative effects of computers in our lives:

Nowadays computers have become such indispensable parts of our lives that they can be found almost everywhere.However,the advantages and disadvantages of these ingenious devices and their amazing capabilities need to be considered.
Computers have brought huge and revolutionary changes to the workplace,education,industry and science.We have computers in our own homes to entertain ourselves,find the information we need,work on them and contact others via the Internet.Even our traditional shopping and advertising habits have changed and are done online due to the tremendous innovations in telecommunications.
Therefore,computers have definitely invaded our lives and we ourselves have become hopelessly addicted to them.Teenagers are so much absorbed in playing computer games that they often refuse to socialize or do their schoolwork.Not to mention that by using the Internet we may all run the risk of being misinformed,misled or deceived.Finally,their excessive use in the workplace has dramatically raised unemployment and created explosive,social problems.
Concluding,I believe that as time goes by,we will inevitably be more dependent on computers,experiencing both their beneficial and harmful consequences.

Why would the report on visits to Government websites include any of the sites you list?

Obviously the data is only relevant as it relates to the subset of Internet users, who visited the sites that were being monitored, during the time period that the monitoring was conducted.
It also assumes that device identities weren't being "spoofed".

Windows XP,even though it's 14 years old,remains as the 2nd most used OS,at a usage of 16.94%.
Windows 8.1 was something like a punishment to XP,an update to Windows 8 and has a usage of 10.55% because Microsoft convices people to buy it.
Windows 8 was the bad change of Windows 7,being used by 3.52% of the world.
Windows Vista had a bad reception,is 8-9 years old and has a usage of 1.97%.

Thats a big issue , i am also convinced a ton of the malware infected machines that are so prevalent in todays World and flooding the computer help forums can be contributed to youngsters constantly surfing porn sites.


I think most remember what it's like to be a young teenager . On another note wasn't that nut job the unibomber (supposedly a genius ) always ranting that technology was going to ruin the World ?
