        LOL, I've told my girlfriend and although she doesn't know a lot of computers she started to laugh.

            Hmmm that's cool. I didn't hear a phone ringing.
            Anyway, have you made a date with her? Then I will finally have a rest for a day

              Very good Daniel. It beats a user coming to me once with a problem with wireless internet. They had plugged the external PCMCIA Wireless Card in to the floppy disk drive. I tried to keep a straight face when they came back to collect it and fortunately, they saw the funny side as well, so the whole IT office then burst out laughing.

              I am sure we all have had similar expriences.

                Re: Probably the best forum question ever!

                At school, a friend of mine used to save his A Level coursework project (Visual Basic 6... yay ) to a floppy at the end of each lesson because we only got given 15MB of space on the network. To save carrying it round, he used to pry off the cover of a drive bay and store * the disk in there - we had our own computer lab at the school so he was the only one to ever use that machine during that year. Was a bit inconvenient when they replaced all the machines with upgrades over Easter...

                * Why can't my users store their paperclips in the live terminals of the power sockets?

                  Maybe the OP should install Virtual PC 2007 since it is logical that it has virtually no weight. Also if he removed the HDD, CPU, RAM, motherboard, screen and chassis then that might make the laptop weight more managable. All it takes is a little thought.

                  2 2 was 1 2.
