  2. - Vista Pricing Revealed by Paul Thurrott, Vista Pricing Revealed Online retailer has begun taking preorders for various Windows Vista versions, which will be available January 30, 2007, according to Not surprisingly, the prices that lists for Vista are quite similar to the roughly equivalent Windows XP versions. According to, the prices for Vista are as follows: Vista Home Basic: $199.00 Vista Home Basic Upgrade: $99.95 Vista Home Basic Upgrade (Additional License Only): $89.95 Vista Home Premium: $239.00 Vista Home Premium Upgrade: $159.00 [How much is that in Australian dollars ..] Vista Home Premium Upgrade (Additional License Only): $143.00 Vista Business: $299.00 Vista Business Upgrade: $199.00 Vista Business Upgrade (Additional License Only): $179.00 Vista Ultimate: $399.00 Vista Ultimate Upgrade: $259.00 Vista Ultimate Upgrade (Additional License Only): $233.00 Although not every Vista version correlates exactly with an XP version, the pricing is in line with XP pricing. For example, XP Home costs $189.00, compared with $199.99 for Vista Home Basic, and the XP Home Upgrade costs $89.97, only two cents more than the Vista Home Basic Upgrade. Upsells won't be particularly expensive either: Prices for the much more capable Vista Home Premium are just $40 to $60 higher than those of Vista Home Basic. doesn't yet show the box art that Microsoft will use for its Vista retail versions. Earlier this week, Microsoft Canada also slipped with a bit of Vista pricing information: The company's Web site briefly reported that Vista Ultimate would cost $450 in Canadian dollars.

  4. I use AVG Free, it also checks my email in/out, and now they must have decided to let it update at a set time. If I remember, in the past, only the paid version allowed this. Also, the only adware/spyware program I use, besides Windows Defender is Ewido. And now GRISOFT has purchased Ewido anti-spyware and issued a NEW VERSION 4 with a completely changed GUI. It's great. Full product turns into a free scanner after a trial run. You can use it for free then, but you may have to get updates yourself. I liked it from a long time ago, as it was the only program to dig stuff out of System Restore. If you like to pay for the full programs, you can now get 1. antivirus 2. anti-spyware and 3. a firewall all at the same place. GRISOFT has got the trifecta.
  5. If you want to see a great web page design check out the Microsoft VISTA page! Yes, you heard right, $MS$, long live Linux, spit on you, may your camel get fleas Microsoft. No matter what you think of them, this is web page designing at it's best, It's simple, yet complex, informing and stunning, color co-ordinated and to the point. A pleasure to stumble upon. What do you think they made it with? Dreamweaver, NO, may your camels hump die of drought .. coffee and donuts? depends how fat they are. Expression Web Designer? They probably better had seeing they are trying to foist that upon us. Take a look at the code .. Go ahead now, shoot me down ...
  6. I will get Vista as I am older and do not have as much time as you! Was expecting to have to: Buy Vista Buy Graphics card - with Pixel Shader 2 Buy additional 1 Gig Ram (Have 1 Gig so this may not be needed) The Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor also says my BigPond Wireless Modem is not supported at present.. ***WARNING - Image is 99 Kb in size***
  7. 3 good arguments that Jesus was a .... * ** *There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black: 1. He called everyone brother. 2. He liked Gospel. 3. He couldn't get a fair trial. * ** * But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish: 1. He went into His Father's business. 2. He lived at home until he was 33. 3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God. * ** *But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian: 1. He talked with His hands. 2. He had wine with His meals. 3. He used olive oil. * ** *But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian: 1. He never cut His hair. 2. He walked around barefoot all the time. 3. He started a new religion. * ** *But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian. 1. He was at peace with nature. 2. He ate a lot of fish. 3. He talked about the Great Spirit. * ** *But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish: 1. He never got married. 2. He was always telling stories. 3. He loved green pastures. * ** ********* But the most compelling evidence of all - 3 proofs that Jesus was a * woman: 1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food. 2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it. 3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was work to do. AMEN!!*
  8. I have an Acer Extensa Notebook. Just wanted a Notebook for a change with it's low power requirements and quiet operation and limited wires. However I knew I would be in BIG TROUBLE if it ever stopped working. It stopped working after a year and two months. It's laying on it's back on my other desk. Anyway it was pre-activated I think, as when I purchased it all I had to do was type in my user name in front of the salesperson. Problem is, if you wish to install Windows (and the additional software comes too..) again, you have to install and wipe your previous installations. Including any Windows updates, etc. The only way to get the WindowsXP disk (that you have to activate) is to buy from an independent OEM. And not too many of those make Notebooks/Laptops.
  9. Can you right click on a toolbar button and then click "Customize..".? And then add the 'Folder Options' button to the toolbar? Although the button code is probably reused from the 'Tools' menu.. And if 'Group policy' is set ..
  10. I like that.. It's seriously more weird than I am.. No, I like taxying down the runway in my 747. Maybe I can watch the inflight movie. If I could hear it. I always wanted to watch movies on a little screen and in an uncomfortable office chair. Must get VISTA with the built in Media Center. ------ Maybe I should get one of these? ---- You're right, if the fan is blowing on the CPU, then it's a sucker, and not a blower.
  11. Yes. Very impressive!
  12. If you visit CrazyTalk and download the Internet Explorer plugin ( any version from 6 up ..) you can see young William H. Gates III comes to life and talk to the coppers... There is a Firefox plugin as well, but I can't get it to work on my version Here is the link to DOWNLOAD 268K (I made this in about 10 mins with the try out - Crazytalk is easy to use, if a little buggy) Run your anti-virus scanner though the zip, then unzip the 3 files, one a html, and click on this. Or 'open with IE' - if Firefox is your default browser. (As Firefox does not appear to work - remember that!!)
  13. Well, I've never seen anything like that. What are the specs? You got three H/D's. Slaves or RAID backup? What is an OTES RAMflow? Some double fan cooler for the CPU. Why is it called RAMflow? Did you get the plastic exhaust pipe you see on my case? Does everyone? I had such a heck of a job to get the OEM to leave out the floppy, (at my expense) broke his heart. Could not bring myself to say ditch the 56K modem as well. The case is designed with the floppy slot, but I just consider it an extra cooling slot! Will we ever be able to move into the future now .. and let go of the past 56K and 3 1/2" 1.44Mb? Not really, everyone will come back and swear they use these things every day and cannot live without them. Bit like Microsoft will not let go of paint - when they could have gotten us an OLD PhotoImpact, say 5 or 6 plus a vector with Xara Xtreme. Such is life..

  15. Well, it's the razzmatazz plus security that we home users want. Except Media Center. But you can stick your little games, except CHESS looks like it might be OK. But who has time. And to Microsoft directly, or in particular the psychiatrists who treat the designers of the Windows GUI, women don't like crawly things - get that game out-of-there. I don't like them either, even though I am only woman in phoney photo, to exemplify all is not as it seems on the Net.
