    Well after almost 9 years of using Windows 98, I'm finally going to switch to XP. I've been backing everything up and preparing, and was going to do it yesterday but I chickened out at the format C prompt :)

    It's kinda like moving out of an old house after living in it so many years, but all things come to an end.

    So after I post this, I'm taking the plunge. If I'm not seen for a while, you'll know that things went badly.

    Wish me luck.

    Not too bad.... next morning and back online. Not near the hassle I thought I'd be in for :)

    I'm liking this XP stuff.... although it's not the standard XP ;)

    Vista........ I refuse!!!!!

    I kept 98 for nearly 9 years, I'm gonna try and skip Vista altogether if I can. The integrated "digital rights management" scares the hell outa me!
