Computers! Great when everything's working but when they're not ... ! For a while the satellite modem started working again (still awaiting spare parts and technician) but heavy rain the other day and out it went again so today I'm on 19.2 kbps on dial-up on the laptop! Meantime I managed to load Windows 7 onto the main computer - then the switch broke, Peter fixed it, broke again, fixed again then the whole system crashed, repaired itself but in the process wiped out half the programmes I'd spent a few hours re-installing. Now the CD drive has spat it's dummy too. So not only are we now waiting to get the satellite dish fixed our computer-savvy friends Barry and his son-in-law are going to build us a new computer! I'll keep you posted!!!
