Shame he hadn't left it on as the bullets wouldn't have done so much damage if fired through an open window Wink

And then he remembers that the only copy of his password list was on the now-shattered hard drive!  Cheesy

He must have had an old computer, as for many years the three finger salute had brought up the task menu.
He did it a kindness!!

Re: I know the feeling...

I had similar frustration the other day.
The missus in hospital, me trying to get videos / photos of 7up jnr from main computer onto netbook so she could see them and do you think windows file sharing would work? No, absolutely not. It suddenly decided that it was the right time to drop dead and refuse file access to any machine on the network.
Multiple restarts later, it finally realised that i was not giving up and decided to play ball. Took me ages to do such a simple task. Very frustrating.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
