    Talking A Happy Friend

    This afternoon, I worked w/ my friend who is in Edmonton. He bought Win8 Upgrade @ my suggestion & recommendation. He had a 64-bit box that was running 32-bit Vista. It is, now, running 64-bit Windows 8. The installation was an absolute, very rapid breeze. Basic OS install took no more than 20 mins. Spent some time via Team Viewer doing a bit of 'show-n-tell' w/ him, then left him to do or put in whatever he desired & 'personalize' colours & stuff. He really, really likes it! Formatted the drive, threw Win8 @ it, told it to keep nothing & done like dinner. Quick, easy, painless. He was impressed by how it did so much for itself, by itself.

    We started out via Messenger on his Windows7 machine. Once Win8 was 'live', installed Messenger on it & switched over to it. Then, still, on it, via Team Viewer I gave him 'the guided tour', so to speak. What are friends for, eh?

    I'll throw an Update @ my (currently) Vista laptop in a day or 2. My RP will get replaced in my PC w/ my (non-Upgrade) Windows 8 Pro when it arrives, soon.

    Cheers,
    Drew

    Good day Drew. >>> Spent some time via Team Viewer <<<
    Is this TV not the cat's meow ? I use it a lot with my brother who is 330 kms away, saves a lot of benzene. Brothers are more than friends !

    Also, a great app is Acronis. Yesterday, I fooled around on my machine with Gparted and somehow mucked up the C:\ that I think I never accessed. W-8 would boot but had no Ethernet nor sound. I had done a clone soon after I had W-8 running, I cloned it back and knew full joy.

    I obtained an Office 2010 and it replaced OO after W-8 would not install Office 2K, my old stand-by. Let us hope that this is progress ! You be good. JP.

    Yes, JP, that IS progress I use Team viewer w/ clients on the odd occasion that RA won't connect. & for some reason, we've never determined, it never does w/ that particular person.

    Cheers,
