Good to see you're back, & that you've sorted your move, did it go smoothly, & is dad settled in with you OK?

Ive got a vista setup on my laptop, it works fine apart from the graphics driver. I can only get 1024x768 res. Everything else works fine tho. Oh and it works with no problems on VMWare

Welcome back! I'm glad you've got a new roof now I bet the PC specs are good.

For the lappy...I'll give you 2 bucks for it kidding! I'll get mine eventually, or I'll build one from scratch.
