Hello from Aunty Jack,\r\n\r\nSomething trashed the ethernet link from my main modem/router.\r\nRe-installed XP from scratch and quess what, no net link.\r\nLost the "activate" app for Vista. \r\nNot my day at all.\r\n\r\nSo, call me a traitor if you wish, back to Linux. (LinuxMint 17 "mate" version".\r\nI have had a lot of good fun on XP Forum and will miss it. Maybe in future I will try to install XP on a spare hard disk and be back\r\n\r\nIn the words of "Aunty Jack", the main player/persona in an old Aussie comedy show. "goodbye me little lovelies".\r\n\r\nCheers,\r\n\r\nAunty Jack.
