MS10 is easy. Takes a few hours and a couple of prompts and you're on. The thing does a lot of the thinking for you. No doubt an attraction in your "second childhood".

Not so much "an attraction", 'Whiters', as a necessity!

Just make sure he nobbles its well-documented hotlines to MSHQ.

Get SoD to install Linux Ubuntu. My personal SoD-clone did that for me, and I've never regretted it.
And now, completely off any topic, I was thinking about the late Tam Dalyell this morning, and his obsession with the sinking of the 'General Belgrano.' He seemed to think it wasn't quite cricket, as I recall, on the grounds that it was steaming away from the Falklands Exclusion Zone. Dunno about you, Duffers, but even an ex Corporal (yes, yes, I know: 'Acting,' not 'Substantive') knows that it's enemy capability that matters, not intention. The Argies meant to mount a pincer attack and reckoned without the presence of a nuclear-powered hunter-killer sub. Could have been worse for them; they could have lost their carrier as well, as it was undoubtedly being shadowed by another nuclear sub and could have been torpedoed at will.

"Linux Ubuntu". Sorry, Oswald, he sneered! As for " 'Acting,' not 'Substantive'", you're on a charge! However, you are entirely right concerning the Belgrano and Dalyell was a donkey!

What I never understood was why Mrs Thatcher got involved in tortuous arguments about the sinking of the General Belgrano. It was there, we sunk it, so what? I was in MOD during the liberation of the FI. We used to have our lunchtime drink on a boat moored nearby - known to all as the General Belgrano.

I hope, Mr Duff, that I live to see the day you switch to Apple!

Don't mention that foul five-letter word here, BOE, we're decently MS through and through!

MS? MetroSexual?

No, no, 'Whiters', I've never had sex on a train in my life!

"How do I live without you?
I want to know,
How do I breathe without you?
If you ever go,
How do I ever, ever survive?
How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
Without you,
There'd be no sun in my sky,
There would be no love in my life,
There'd be no world left for me.
And I,
Baby I don't know what I would do,
I'd be lost if I lost you."

Too much, do you think?

Much too much.
I haven't even had breakfast yet!

I just installed MS10'

Back in the day Microsoft made great operating systems.

Then they made good operating systems.

Today they make Windows 10.

Well it is better than NT, Vista, or Windows 8.

Just remember Bill Gates is the man who said 640K RAM is all anyone will ever need.

I am sure SOD will take good care of dear old dad you will be =back on line in time to tell us why we should immigrate to Brittan to vote against the EU. (What's that about damned immigrants?)

The Capt of the Belgrano admitted belatedly they were on a war footing. I am sure some British lefties would have been pleased if the Belgrano had sunk British ships and killed our servicemen and women.

What is the fuss about sinking the Belgrano?

The logic is simple.

1. A is at war with B who started the whole thing.
2. B has a powerful warship in the vicinity of the conflict zone
3. A has a duty to its fighting personnel to sink said warship
4. Warship sunk. Where is the next one?

Oh no. not the dreaded WIN10! I've resisted so far...

Good luck!

What Jimmy said - there's plenty if lefties who would have preferred the Belgrano to do its job.

God knows, naked jingoism is not a pretty spectacle,but at least in this country it is generally tinged with humour and decency, unlike the unbearable self hating left virtue signalling wihich brings benefit to nobody. Loathsome freeloading treacherous barstads. I was going to say barstewards but then I remembered bar stewards are useful.

Everybody was very careful to NOT say we were at war.

Leftism leaves a population unsure of itself and what it believes in. Dysfunction takes over. The western world suffers from this. The west fought a Cold War against Communism but left undefeated was Leftism, the parent of the whole thing.

Everybody was very careful to NOT say we were at war

BoE it was my simple understanding that when some wanker in the uniform of another country shoots at me in the uniform of mine then, despite what others may say, we are at war and he is going to get it back in kind plus some.

Soldiers/sailors/airmen tend to be simple souls and deal with reality not semantics.
