    I am not an IE evangelic. I browse with a small fast red-haired animal :)

    LOL

    But really, I am very much against software which poses security-threats on
    the internet. IE is unfortunately one of them, and I use an alternative.
    From what I read MS is working hard on developing the security of IE, so
    that is good to hear. Of course one will wonder why I use MS at all, but
    hey, it offers all the software I need for my work (multimedia), doesn't
    require a geek to maintain, and isn't that bad as many people still claim
    IMNSHO. Unfortunately 64-bit driver/software development is a bit slow, as
    we all know, but what I've got running on x64, runs great, and I happily
    use it every day :)

  4. I am back and forth, I use a laptop, which is 32 bit, so I am on that at
    work, my 64-bit system is at home and it just works! My HP 840c Printer,
    detected and installed without a hitch, my Canon PowerShot A520 detected
    without a hitch, Office, IE, everything just works! So, I have no complaints
    really. My next computer purchase is torn between another desktop or a
    laptop/Tablet. But the thing is, I think Tablets are still not powerful
    enough and are just too expensive, also there are 64-bit Tablets out yet.
    But I am waiting on the Merom chips to arrive with 64-bit instructions,
    maybe then my dream will come through. :)

    Ah yes, dreaming of better computer-equipment. A dream which never seems to
    end, because just when you want to buy something, there is always this
    person jumping in front of you with something even better! It's really a
    nightmare! I'm glad the 128-bit man is still hiding :)

    We're discussing now whether to switch to Softimage 5 (from Maya) for our
    3D work, because they have a 64-bit version. But it's so risky, because
    Alias is working on a 64-bit version, and I bet as soon as we buy SI5,
    Alias will release their 64-bit version.

    Where can I buy a crystal ball?

  6. By the looks of it, you already have one - I have pretty much drawn the
    conclusion, that the earlier you buy the sooner you'll feel cheated. On the
    other hand, the longer you wait for prizes to fall, the more it will cost
    you to exchange whatever it was you waited for.

    "Describe the world as better than it is, and they'll call you an optimist.
    Describe it as worse than it is, and they'll call you a pesimist, but
    describe it exactly as it is and you'll be called a cynic."

    Exchange? I think I can start a techie-museum with all the stuff which I
    just can't get to sell. Maybe in the end that brings more money in return
    :)
    Nice. Like that one!

  9. A museum? Yes, that is painfully true. I have a drawerfull of not very old
    IDE HD's and AGP Video Cards and memory (not even DDR!). My next machine
    will be Dual-Core and PCI-e. I won't be able to upgrade anything with that
    stuff by then. Hell, my camera has more memory than all the sticks I pulled
    from old machines combined. And what did it cost? No, what you really want
    to do is find a bogus business partner with an adress somewhere in a
    undeveloped part of the world and then get the EU to finance the export of
    your valuable computerparts and hire a container in some forgotten port and
    let it sit there.

    Jeeze! I am ashamed of the amount of cynicism that defeated me there, but
    I'll recover.


    I really wish I could remember who it was that I was citing, there. But many
    of the best really are anonymous to history.

    It's weekend. A couple of Carlsberg's might flush that away :)

    Actually a lot of our second-hand stuff is sent to Africa, where it finds a
    new (less demanding) home. Not to Asia anymore, because they are even ahead
    to us when it comes to computers.

    I recently came across a reference that claimed the only thing worse
    that beating a dead horse was trying to ride one, and it sure looks like
    a bunch of people are trying to ride this horse, as well as beating it
    to death.

    How about getting off this poor horse and letting it die a respectable
    death!

  17. Jud, this just about makes my day! That poor 'Fernando' sod is considerably
    worse off than me. But then he can't have moved around as much as I.

    I made a quick calculation once - when I turned 35, I had had 23 different
    adresses in 2 different countries. Although there were no computers at the
    time, the pattern continues and pretty much takes care of the brunt of that
    sort of burden.

    Thanks - and a good day to you!

    What on earth would someone do with all that junk, other than open a
    museum. Talk about hoarding useless trash, he probably still has all
    the cardboard boxes to go with it. Time for the "Clean Sweep" team to
    head over there and straighten this guy out!
