    My new computer at home has 7 on it plus the military just upgraded to 7. Much much improved system from Vista. Like already posted takes a little while to get used to but a much better operating system.

    OK, I got your reply. I needed to know whether it was working. I sent Alec a PM yesterday and never got a reply. He's one of the moderators and hasn't been around for quite some time. Thanks.

    Windows XP and Vista. I had Windows and thought it was quite outstanding, if not perfect. I now have Vista Home Premium and think it sucks. Like others, Vista is updated/upgraded almost daily and automatically. Still, as I already replied, the udates and upgrades do not effect how my computer looks or operates, just improves whatever within the computer guts.

    Try this to disable the UAC (User Account Control)http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/1...windows-vista/
    This will allow you to access you antivirus software and anything else without Windows giving you a message asking for your permission. It's disabled on my parents' Vista, and they have not had any problems. Also, at the bottom of that link, you will see another link on how to turn off the red warning shield which will appear in your notification area on your taskbar after the UAC control is turned off.

    Some changes cannot be done without changing major different parts. The old software Martin used for the board was released in 2003 or somewhere around back then. Forum software gets updated around monthly. Normally it should not even be a problem to get the old topics work in the new software, there are just some limitations, e.g. if a new file format is used and there is no way to convert things.


    In general i like the ongoing change in the internet. I participated a lot in social networks before they became so normal and other things like that. I also have spend a lot of time at 4chan and similar networks and i still like to surf through those sites. You can see things evolve from there to the whole internet. You just need to have enough resistance regarding naked people and .. well.. you know.

    Summa: I like changes most times. At least if they make sense to me. A great example for change i did not like and not support is office. Since office2007 has been released i use OpenOffice (which is as good as MS Office.. or better..) as i HAAAAATTTEEEE the new design and workspace.


    Rergarding Win7: You can configure W7 so that it looks like Vista/kind of Xp again without major problems. Took me 5 Minutes as i did not like the new task bar. Oh, and i have an older stationary PC with only 1 GB of RAM and Vista operated faster than on my older Laptop with 4 GB of RAM and everything newer and faster. Vista was supposed to NOT WORK with just 1GB of Ram. Well. lol.

    Let's see;
    1 - Can't get rid of Visitor messages, can't even delete what is said in Visitor messages. About like AT, I've got 40 Visitor messages, info deleted, but who and me showing reply is still there taking up space. And I can't get anyone to respond tell me how to delete what is there. Why would you want a visitor message stay when it's done answered? Why even have a Visitor center? PM isn't good enough?
    2 - Didn't have trouble going anywhere in the old site and now can't access much at this point in time.
    3 - Old site and pics, a breeze. New site pics, do this, click here, and click for this. Perhaps storing pics on site saves what?
    4 - Quick Navigation bar. Just like the one on AT, next best thing to junk. I click on something I expect to go there, not have to go the list to click on the same thing I just clicked on. And still incomplete here.
    5 - Profile. Use to be straight forward and easy to access, here and the old AT site. Not now.
    6 - What else?
