My laptop is playing up (lots of beeping noises and refuses to start) and I've had to go back to using my big desktop with the noisy fan. Which has just been sitting there - not connected to the internet.

Several hours later I think I've got to the end of all the software and security updates required to make it safe and efficient when connecting to the Internet. A lesson learned!
I'm very glad I bought a back-up disc with 3 licences when I renewed my security suite recently - but I'm having problems getting they key installed so I'm hoping I can get that sorted out.
It's also very odd because this computer uses XP and I've got to go back to remembering how XP works. I already miss my Vista sidebar with the my ever changing photographs which allowed me to pick out thumbnails with promise from out of the corner of my eye.
...and what's with my so called Microsoft wireless comfort keyboard? The keys are reverberating though my tenosinovitis which is not enjoying it at all! Comfortable it is not! I love my soft-touch laptop keys which was one of the main reasons for using it.
I've still got to go and get the Vaio booked in for its diagnostics - but not on a Saturday I think!
End of whinge!
