    Dawg says that the whole thing was a joke, and Gary Puppet is the new Admin for the site.

    Your own fault for buying a laptop with horrendous software like Windows 8.

    I have both Macs and PCs at home and work and I refuse to upgrade my PCs because Windows 8 is an abortion of a PC software. Totally made for tablets, not desktops or laptops.

    Did you disconnect from internet and then reconnect? If nothing else. Reboot!

    Just to be safe, shoot a hole in the transformer up on the telephone pole outside your tenement. When the repair crew replaces the transformer, reboot your laptop using stolen electricity from your neighbor.

    been running win 8 since Sept, fast, no chrashes, no issues

    it's optimized for a tablet but works great on laptops/desktops

    install the start button and you're good

    The server is in Las Vegas? I see, sir, you qualify a site visit as a "business expense"???

    Hmmm...let me recommend the Tea Party division of the IRS...
