Would that be something higher up & made of glass by any chance?

Laptop received 11:58.
Got a message from seller not long after.
It was sent next day delivery on 30/6.
Apparently, they had numerous issues with DPD for the past several days with items being "stranded".
I believe it.
2 options available to bypass Win 11 M$ A/c to use a local A/c.
Option+F10 failed (taskmger came up but network flow failed to show).
Option 2 worked a charm, just entered M$ A/c then disconnected from the Net.
Had to hit next 4 times but eventually, all good job done.
Oh those frigging updates...
...but 64 bit O/S & double the ram of previous laptop. fast. :-)
Just 2 little issues.
Thinner & lighter than previous laptop (both were 17") but a bit longer.
No removable battery?
TweakUI took care of the other issues. :-)

All that fuss with creating a bootable rufus. Just as easy to hover over next then click 4x.
Much less bovver than a hover. :-)

Why on earth would he express concern? Did he think his occupation was killing people by throwing them through windows? Is anyone really that stupid?
You don't have the blokes there like across the pond where that would be an entirety reasonable assumption. Be thankful for that while you can. Rump's minions are spreading.

In his dreams. I doubt that will hold through the weekend.

It looks like you people are suffering from that ancient Chinese curse of "Living in interesting times".

I hope that it's not too prolonged.

I would guess that HRH QEII will have something to say to him about staying on when he is so obviously seriously holed below the water line...

It has been too prolonged for over a year! (Someone will probably suggest a longer time frame.)

Why do people get so worked up about politicians misbehaving? They all do. Non-politicians do too, it's a fact of life. Who cares?

It's getting caught, that is the crime.
