Good Riddance Acer!  

As of noon today I no longer own a POS Acer laptop running Vista. Instead I am the proud owner of a slightly used Lenovo Think Pad running XP. My wallet hurts but I feel like a weight has been lifted.

No more Vista!!! 

The "new" 'puter has about half the hard drive space of the old one but I have about 300 gigs of external drive space and nearly half of it's empty so I'm not too put out by that. It has a longer battery life and a fingerprint reader and did I mention the XP?

yeah, who ever thought Vista + LapTop = genius needs to be taken into a back alley and disposed of.

I think you are being too kind and frankly I'm surprised. Surely YOU can think of much more painful and messy things to do to the person responsible.

Being sewn into a sack with starving rabid rats would be a good start.

you're right, clearly I am losing my touch! ah, how about this: we lock his genitals in a gradually-tightening vice/guillotine contraption and the only way to get free is to optimize a hard drive with Windows Vista rigged to go Blue Screen of Death whenever he clicks the wrong icon. yeah, that's better.

My faith in you is restored.

I bought an unopened copy of XP right after Vista came out just for that sucky reason. :\
