An update

Well as you can see, things are a bit bare around here. My webhost seems to have screwed things up royally and trashed the server including my whole site, databases and e-mail archive. I have a backup of my mail, which is good, but the site was lost as I never back it up. No great loss really as all I really had was lots of pictures I link to on forums to show my photos off. But it has meant that I’ve had to reinstall WordPress and I no longer have my posts here. What’s that?.. “there was never anything good here anyway!”. Well.. yeah, you’re probably right. Long may that continue!

On an unrelated note I’ve been trying out Windows Vista on my AMD 3200XP+, 2GB memory, 1.3TB storage PC, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s bloodly awfuly slow. I don’t want to use an OS that consumes hardware, I want one that allows applications to use the hardware. So I’m going back to XP as soon as I can. Now don’t get me wrong, there are some nice things in Vista, but they don’t offset the pain of its slowness.
