Re: What's made you smile today?

Laptop upgrade finished 24hrs after it started. 2gb memory upgraded to 4gb and a new 500gb hard drive


Windows rating went up from 3.5 to 5.9 all thats holding it back is the ATI graphics card.. Can they be upgraded??

Transferring 160Gb of files from the old crippled hard drive to the newer hard drive through an old USB1.6

Also been at university/asleep so wasnt around/awake when i needed to press some buttons....

also had a few issues adjusting the partition sizes

The memory is just plug and play so that was the easy part..

Re: What's made you smile today?

Yesterday Mrs. Beard and I went to look at some mobile phones as both are probably in need of upgrading. Hers because she doesn't really like the one she got and mine because I think it has a fairly limited life left.

As we were in Phones 4 Warehouse She Who Must Be Obeyed said she quite fancied an iPhone or similar and asked why I didn't get a Smart Phone.

I immediately went into Luddite mode and, while banging my index finger noisily into the counter said in a loud voice:

"All I want is a bloody phone. I want it to make and receive bloody calls, send and bloody receive bloody texts and I might bloody want it to bloody take the bloody odd bloody photograph...........I don't want a bloody Smart bloody Phone."

"Finished?" She asked. "Feeling better now are we?"

Even the dog was looking like she'd rather be tied to a lamppost at the side of the A34 than right there.

I spent the rest of the trip round the shopping area with my hands in my pocket and my bottom lip stuck out like Kevin's

However, I'm proud to say that I stuck to my principles and today am the proud of owner of.............a Samsung Galaxy, which is a bloody Smart Phone.

Mrs. Beard is going for the Galaxy S2, but as I'm a self-confessed tight-a**e I've chosen the cheaper Galaxy Ace.

She's realised that about half the people she works with have iPhones and almost all have had problems on the latest version.
