Well I installed Service Pack 2 for Windows XP this morning, I have been putting off doing it for quite some time due to bad things I heard about software incompatibilities. So, after making a ghost image of my C drive I took the plunge and got the updates.

Everything on my PC appears to be ok; I’ve tested all the commonly used pieces of software. Nero had some issues but these were easily corrected by a software update. So now no more problems – until SP3 is released!

I’m one of these people who really dislike Microsoft and the only reason I use their operating system is… well because using an OS like Linux would simply cause me more problems, not due to quality but the choice of software available is limited (how arrogant and lazy!).

I never use Internet Explorer anymore, some of my friends frown upon this, but I find it very bug prone and even with security software and updates certainly has vulnerabilities. I use Firefox from Mozilla, a basic web browser but extremely effective.

Since I moved over from “the dark side” I have had no problems whatsoever. Most people who knock Firefox have not tried it themselves and therefore are not in a position to be critical.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
