As if in revenge for my cynical comments about the Microsoft Operating System on Radio 4 and at the ecrime congress this week, my desktop machine with Windows XP decided to go into self-destruct mode this morning.
On starting it up it announced that I hadn't configured 'Family Safety' and wasn't authorised to access the internet. It also conveniently ate its own Windows installer to make sure that I was completely helpless.
In despair, I took it up to Fast Micros in Westbrook and they have spent the whole day trying to repair the mess, succesfully I should add too. Buy an 'Apple Mac', my friends keep telling me and I never listen. Perhaps one day I should.
Grateful thanks to Fast Micros for saving the day, once again!
