First, yes, I get impression you like VISTA, and so far, it has not melted your Cely chip or your mobo.....so this is good, right?
Also now clear on specs.....and the possibilities......but also don't want 2 B on autopilot/hostage.
As for IE.....not, I think about brains, but rather individual learning curves and differentail decisions about various elements. Few things are black & white, e.g. I find basic XP graphics insulting and disgusting/vulgar.....so i choose to configure it in both systems running it, Classic Custom.
..and I mean every color and other thing. but see, this is only me. I also do custom wallpapers using MS Paint...or else I am not happy.....so I am total nutcase, OK?
I am AOL subcriber, whole cottage industry=dissing AOL.....but given all they have evolved, I think they are now high end ISP. Also, their software loads IE....and once you get THE THOUSAND HOLES PATCHED.....IT'S NOT TERRIBLE BROWSER......it's the contempt MS shows for its hostage client base....via infinite assets for anti trust battles.... re the HOLES in the first place I am disgusted by.
Finally, yes, have Sun & Venus conjunct in Aries in the 8th, Virgo rising, Moon in Cancer and grand trine in water. Sorry you asked, right????
This science (astrology) waaaaaaaaay more complex and singular in wut it can bring than any populist version....also more complex even than our PCs....though I have two fab softwares for running accurate math and I luv them.
Again, will keep open mind re VISTA......but want to make informed decisions.
REGARDS TO YOUR ALIEN.....FROM MINE...AND BY THE way, recently bought a nice and affordable aluminum Bytecc USB (duh) cooling pad .....did not like temps above 50C......all newer notebooks, forget these little Sentias.....too much stuff jammed into to miniscule space....even if 2.5 HDD made 2 withstand more heat.....we know our mobos in these don't even have names, and many have failed....see, Virgo rising describes nit picking and caution.....sometimes. Aries rising more leap in the moment ORIENTED....LIKE NOT ALWAYS MEANT TO LOOK FIRST, RIGHT?
But gotta say, the cooling pad works....so makes me feel bettah. Small investment, and, I think, intelligent one....but would luv any feedback from others who R using these. Maybe only lappy owners with Virgo rising,
