Well, makes me feel a bit better not to be the only idiot some how. My one and only pc was kiĺled by a dog and a tennis ball situation , you can imagine the picture. The laptop only made a fall of about 1.50 meter but was smashed. Ever seen a broken screen? Sad, I have nothing laying around but luckily Good Friends how are sending me an idle laptop. It will be a supprise to find out what it is when the package arrives. Beggars can't be choosers , hope it will have Windows 7.
