After weighing up my options, and according to my wife, being criminally mean, I decided that I couldn’t bear to part with XP; and since my anti-virus will take up the slack for MS’s withdrawal of support, I rebuilt the old, wheezing computer.
It clanked a few times and, I’m pretty sure, swore at me as it spluttered back to life - but it’s back.
Am I the only one who thinks XP is better? Or am I the only one who can’t bear to part with yet more money for that dratted Windows 8 which will probably be obsolete in a couple of months, anyway? Regardless, I know the day will come, and soon, but for now at least the old steam powered comp and XP are back.
Tomorrow I’m going to begin the eleventh and I hope final re-write of Spawn Of Kongomato. Even if people hate it, which naturally I hope is not the case, at least they won’t be able to pin their loathing on typos. That’s not going to happen again.
