My first proper PC was from PC World not long after it opened down at Marsh Mills in about 1997. It was a Packard Bell and was reduced from over 2 grand to £1550 !

It was the dogs bollocks at the time and had a 4gb hard drive and 32 mb of Ram!  cheers  How times change.

Pasoti was the first bookmarked website I ever had.  Embarassed

It just sums up the trouble with technology, my pc is pretty buggered now, it's a good one featuring quite a bit of stuff that you needed a few years ago but sadly now it's out of date. Even if I go top of the range and buy a new pc it will already be getting left behind in the race to provide us with a machine that can do the same job as the last one did but in a slightly different way. The more memory we have the more data we are given to choke it with. It used to take ages to download a page of text, it still does because they can now load that page with loads of ads or ladies with their tits out or even both. I don't think that we will ever get to a stage when we have a computer that you could use like a simple axe or a hammer, keep it clean, give it a wipe very now and then and just use it for a large part of our life.

I have a chromebook. Cheap, cheerful and no anti virus necessary.

AdBlock is good, it cuts out all the junk that you get on webpages and helps them to download pretty much instantly and you don't have to put up with football's official sites that have advertising banners combined with their header.

I must give that a go, Gob. I don't know why, but a few tech sites I visit regularly now swamp me with full page adverts - fcking pain in the ass. It's not my machine - I know it's clean and free of any virus, adware, bloatware, malware etc.

How may 'wares can there be? Anyway. I'm of to try AdBlock.
