  2. A woman awakes during the night to find that her husband was not in their bed. She puts on her robe and goes downstairs to look for him. She finds him sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee in front of him. He appears deep in thought, just staring at the wall. She watches as he wipes a tear from his eye and takes a sip of coffee. "What's the matter, dear?" she whispers as she steps into the room, "Why are you down here at this time of night?" Do you remember when I met you and you were only 16?" he asks solemnly. The wife is touched to tears thinking that her husband is so caring and sensitive. "Yes, I do" she replies. The husband pauses. The words are not coming easily. "Do you remember when your father caught us in the back seat of my car, making love?" "Yes, I remember" says the wife, lowering herself into a chair beside him. The husband continues... "Do you remember when he shoved a shotgun in my face and said, "Either you marry my daughter, or I will send you to jail for 20 years?'" "I remember that too" she replies softly. He wipes another tear from his cheek and says..."I would have gotten out today."
  3. I pay for 'up to' 29meg with plusnet http://www.speedtest.net/result/3941589291.png
  4. Are you using something like this? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-3-0-TO-SATA-IDE-Hard-Drive-Adapter-Converter-Cable-SET-/221546360760?pt=UK_Computing_Drive_Cables_Adapters&hash=item3395312fb8 If so,the power supplies provided are pants and often give up.Best bet is to put it in a pc as someone mentioned.
  5. I think the pae issue is to do with the processor not being compatible/powerful. are you trying to install a 32 or 64 bit Chris?
  6. Cheers Swarf,will try later,does it make a difference that it's a ssd? Installed first time on another pc with standard sata platter drive.It does go through the install but only shows up as 1.9gb on Zorin partition and will not boot,really don't want to format full drive and lose windows 7,just got it how i want it. If it doesn't work then so be it,i have it on another machine and will have a play on that. Is there any way of slowing the mouse 'scroll' down on Zorin as it seems to go too fast? I've looked in settings>mouse but there is no option to do it. Thanks Jay
  7. No worries Swarf,i'll keep trying,managed to install it (on it's own) on another machine so the disc is ok,just can't get it to dual-boot!
  8. I didn't say it cleaned the paste off,the cloth does that,the wd40 is something for the paste to stick to(I spray it on the cloth,not the cpu),i also stated that i dry the cpu afterwards thoroughly,and that's only on the rare occasion that i run out of alcohol wipes.I have had no problems using it and NEVER had a greasy residue afterwards. Just sharing my experiences on an open forum,after all,that's what they are for aren't they? Also,i'm not giving the op bad advice,i highly recommend using the proper stuff! P.s On the front of the can of WD40,it clearly states that it DOES clean,so why haven't they been done for false advertising? Straight form the tin...... *Stops squeaks *Drives out moisture *Cleans and protects *loosens rusted parts *Frees sticky mechanisms
  9. You're lucky swarf..........couldn't even get it to boot after installation,never really been a fan of linux,mainly because i can't be bothered to try and understand how it works and all the commands,partitions etc......However, i did like the look of Zorin 9,so downloaded it,burned it to disc(slowest speed) and installed it(or so i thought!),would not boot,so had a look on the hard drive and it had only used around 1.5gb for the OS,is that normal?
  10. The cpu paste doesn't wear out,it just hardens over time and becomes less effective. As stated,there really is very little difference between thermal pastes,maybe a few degrees of heat ,the cpu cooler that is used is more important.I usually use alcohol wipes but if i run out,i use wd40 on a soft cloth and dry thoroughly.
  11. If you are wanting your old sata hard drive as an external,you will need one of these- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-2-0-EXTERNAL-2-5-INCH-SATA-LAPTOP-HARD-DRIVE-HDD-CASE-CADDY-ENCLOSURE-/321445091029?pt=UK_Collectables_HardDriveEnclosures_RL&hash=item4ad79ed6d5 To just use a cable,you will need one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/USB-2-0-to-SATA-Serial-ATA-22P-Adapter-Cable-Case-2-5-HDD-SSD-Laptop-Hard-Drive-/261360949593?pt=UK_Computing_Drive_Cables_Adapters&hash=item3cda539959 Which to be honest looks less tidy than the other option and slightly more expensive! Hope this helps.
