Hello DA.


Yes, please keep me informed about WAIK, I'm really interested; I still have it in a folder on my desktop.

Thanks.

LOL this forum is hilarious.

I have never actually backed up anything (yeah I know) except some of my school documents (Thankfully, because my other HDD with my main OS on it just like blew up on me at startup and I have no idea what happened............ )

I think it would be a nice feature of Seven to include and auto backup of your Profile folder to another location (either as a cheap add on or included). That would make it a lot easier to use.

I have not really gotten around to using Seven as much as I should have (I am on it now, but everything is in Limbo and I'm so tired from my band concert.... 15 hours of practice in two days... GAH!!!!). But I plan on getting that all set up tomorrow (about 10 hours from now when I get up) and work around helping my friend build his new (beast) computer.... Gah I'm so out of it I better shut up before I confuse anymore people...

BTW, hello to all. I have not been as active on here as I should have been (I spent all my time over on Vista with my just <1000 posts..... bleah). Anyways, welcome and I will be around some more I hope.

Well the forum itself isnt funny, but sometimes the stuff on here is just crazy. I was tired last night and everything was funny then, so maybe that was it.

I am currently reinstalling everything (the BootMGR is shot on my main OS... damn) so that works for me. Luckily, my 9 page research paper was backed up on my flash drive...
