If it breaks there are loads of W7 PCs available from somewhere like Morgan or Amazon. I am faced with similar decisions though I have already moved t...

Eventually got through and hopefully cancelled my account. Time will tell.

Received two emails to the effect that my account is cancelled...

Today received email titled "Updates to your service"

Re: We surely are not alone?

The probability of a particular human such as yourself coming into existence has been calculated as infinitesimally small, something of the order of 1 in 10^44 against. Not small enough though it would seem. For any of us to have been born, every single one of our ancestors going back millions and ...
