    Computers and Windows Don't Mix

    The other day I was carrying my old system down the stairs (toying over putting it in the new car, while I work on MK2) when I slipped on the top step, dropped it, it then prceded to bounch twice before sailling through the front window, ouch.

    Just to make matters worse UK law says it has to be replaced with toughened glass, and it's double glassed to boot so at the moment there's a nice piece of plywood there instead.
    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

    Total re-design underway: on the whole progress is very slow as the car is taking up too much time :)

    That's too bad. But to be perfectly honest, I would have loved to see it happen.

    Sorry.
