Give yourself plenty of time - it's not a 5 minute job and things will cause you problems along the way.

He will never be seen around here again...and if he is, he'll be fucking angry. :P

It's been an awfully long time. It took me about 10 minutes to do mine...
Cause you are beautiful
Your scars are beautiful, like the Jade
You'll still shine when you sink into the sea
Where the bleeding scarlet jealousy
Carves away your belief

No, not a reformat, this takes well over an hour. Then there will perhaps be issues with display drivers, video drivers, email set up etc.

Of all the things that could keep him away. Bloody computer issues! :P

Well, yea, he probably had to install a browser other than IE, get his email account logged in, the drivers should have loaded with the reformat but windows updates should take care of that and do take a while, esp on a computer that old. Maybe he went to bed. :lol:

...assuming he can get back online...that was my biggest issue once. My biggest triumph was getting Windows 8 off of this computer and taking it back to Windows 7, that took me days to settle it down, but it was all done by researching on Google (and I don't profess to have any knowledge). At one stage I had an empty black screen and nothing else at all, but I got it back. I'm sure Beligiee will make it back here some day too. :P
