Fewer vs less

Kari will be interested in this. Completely off topic. The easiest way to do it is if the objects are individual, eg. people, horses, tanks, grains of sand, drops of water - then there can be fewer of them .

If it cannot be counted, e.g. water, rain, sand - then there can be less of it.

Thanks geeks.

My intention was to make a step by step walkthrough, which automatically makes it quite long. The goal was that in case a newbie decides to be bold and follow the tut he could follow a logical and chronological chain of events, getting an explanation for steps he's going through and having a video to watch how it's done.

Britton, it's my friend Ms. Hazel .

Fantastic work, Kari! You brought SysPrep to the consumer with Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer and now have taken them even further. My hat is off to you!

Hi Kari,

For a "learnt the hard way" person like me that started messing with computers when a 1 X Speed SoundBlaster CD-ROM was the most extreme thing available, following your tutorial and simultaneously doing the practical bit (thank goodness for 17" Monitor) has been an AWESOME experience. I salute you sir, on a damn fine effort. I hope that others will gain as much knowledge and experience as I did from a brilliantly done tutorial.

With deep gratitude,

Wazzbler
