'05 Compaq Presario M2000: P9 now installed
« on: November 20, 2018, 01:00:46 pm »
I am back home after a trip back east for a family funeral. Decided to bring back the laptop I had mailed to Mom that she never touched. She had thrown away the paperwork with all my do not throw away notes about passwords. So I just went ahead and installed P9 over top of the P7 I had installed before i mailed it off to her.  8)

Sad though, as this would have been a much easier laptop for her to use. But she prefers having shiny & new. Nevermind that she can't navigate quickly enough to stay ahead of all the screens and pop-ups Win10 throws at her on an under powered Lenovo... 

Just as well, Mom's not long for this world anyway.

What are the specs on the Compaq? I used to love Compaq computers.

No, you can't turn people off of Windows, they have to come of their own accord. Hell, even I use Windows sometimes, mostly for certain games.

Edited original post for you @scifidude79 as for being stuck on Windows, Mom would use whatever was costliest, shiniest and newest.... but I'm in no mood to buy her a new linux laptop

Damn are things really **that** impossible for Cleveland ?
(if it's somehow cosmically linked to my missus using Windows, sorry Browns but I've tried)

Cleveland was 0-16 last season, the only other NFL team in history to do that was Detroit (not last season.) They actually celebrated like they won the Super Bowl when they won a game earlier this season and broke their losing streak. They haven't gone to the playoffs in 15 years, a record. So, yes, it's that hopeless.

Now, Cleveland has won championships, but the last was about 10 years before it was called the Super Bowl.

About the only American football stat I know is....

Since living in the states as a kid, I've been a loyal supporter/fan of the Vikings, who I do know hold the dubious record of being the team that's been in the most super bowls without ever having won one .. at least I think I'm right about that.

I was a casual fan, but I don't follow it anymore. It's too much of a pain to watch games while working nights.

Talking about the Cleveland Browns, with one game left in the regular season, they have a better record than 15 of the 32 teams in the NFL.  :D
What was I thinking?
