      Now I am really intrigued, what can you do with a spectrum, a keyboard and double glazing?

      I'm genuine!! I don't see the point in running counterfeit widows, the legit version is a big enough security risk!!

      Well, to be terribly honest about it... 3 of 14 is not too bad; considering I don't agree with the present state of software useage as our computer world grows.

      We should be allowed at least 5 machines for each copy as I see it; also, I'm poor and Bill is rich... go figure.

      LOL, but would you still feel the same way if you had 14 computers to feed?
