Had a P4 Gateway XP. Wonderful old horse. She dumped one drive. When she froze up and had part of her registry blasted, it was time for new hardware. Had a fellow service-connected disabled vet who worked in crypto help me pick this monster out. It's a Toshiba Quosmio, a Vista with all the bells and whistles one could have on a laptop! My buddy also got me all cranked on internet security, so I ordered a mil-spec password storage device and protector, XP driver on accompanying disk. Haven't been able to successfully install Vista driver yet. Incidentally, my friend is in the hospital, so I'm flailing! My name is Steve, I'm 56 and I've been left behind on this technological highway. I do have web related nickname. Bloodyxxxx is the name I use to administer my domains which haven't seen much administering the past 2 or 3 years. I stubbornly hang on though.

:thumbsup:
