I probably will to be honest. I tend to download things then watch them 6 months later! :lol: To be honest, it just seems a waste to have my computer sat idle when it could be downloading something - especially something as large as a complete set of Lost (I'll d/l S5 separately, thanks for the heads up).

Currently downloading...

Lost (Seasons 1-5)
Battlestar Galactica (Complete Series)
Burn Notice (Seasons 1 + 2)
The Shield (Complete Series - replacing the shite copies I currently have)

That little lot comes to a grand total of 100GB. I'm having a bet with myself whether they'll have finished by Christmas or not...

Downloaded the Windows 7 RC today. Easy to set-up and so far I'm really impressed. It has a much nicer and more slick interface, and it already seems faster than Vista.

So far I've heard good things about Windows 7. Which is more than I can say I heard about Vista. Although I really don't mind Vista all that much.

No, I didn't mind Vista either. I just saw the prettiness of Windows 7 and had to have it rightaway. :D

Currently downloading Damages after reading an old thread on here where someone raved about it.

I'm in the market for some more top quality TV shows - anyone got any suggestions?

Paul, how's Windows 7 holding up for you? I've had people telling me it's slipping back into a Vista-esque slow old dog after 5 or 6 weeks - even when you add bugger all to the system.

I've been running the Ubuntu OS on dual-boot recently and it's a lovely setup. I wish some of the Adobe suite were built to run on it.

It's still running no problem for me, definitely better than Vista. I kind of backed myself into a corner though, I'm not actually sure if I can go back to Vista (as I didn't install 7 on a separate partition) and I'm still using the Release Candidate version, which expires around March next year.

Good to hear it's still running ok. Did you have any bother with driver updates for anything that you run?

All the signs generally point to a significant improvement anyway. Not worth rolling back to Vista. Are you just going to get an upgrade disk to move onto the proper release?

My nephew installed Windows 7 the other night and it took him FOREVER because he couldn't find a driver for his wireless router. Nobody had Linksys drivers out there anywhere. Every other router on the planet was there except for the Linksys. He finally found one somewhere but he was getting mighty frustrated.

That's the thing, I've read that you can't upgrade from RC to the Retail version - you have to do a fresh install with the much more pricey Full version. Nice way of treating the people who kindly tested it for them, huh?

And no, I've not had any bother with drivers.

If you've been running Vista on that machine though you should qualify ok for the upgrade? And it seems like you can do a full install from the upgrade disc without having to first reinstall Vista. Microsoft are bleating about how people shouldn't really do it, and aren't allowed to do this that and the other blah,blah, but i can't see how you'd be doing anything wrong there.

I'm guessing you got a preinstalled Vista OEM machine so you get no disc? No proper disc and having to roll back your system through a snapshot of the original drive setup is a bit of a con job. I remember querying it in Comet and they said it was to prevent piracy, and there should be no reason to need the disc anyway - retards :roll: They just blanked when i mentioned some potential scenarios and they just said most things would probably invalidate the warranty. I feel sorry for the average man on the street just wanting a fair computer and having to deal with all that shit :lol:

Anyway. i digress. Have a look into the upgrade route and see what you can do.

Yeah, that's certainly on the radar. I started downloading them all ealier this year but then I had my PC wiped so I'll have to start again. I'm not in a great hurry to see this before the final season begins next year. I'd like to be able to watch them all straight through.

Thanks for the suggestion though. :)

sorry, didn't see your post yesterday. Wireless routers are one of the problem areas for some reason. I think Microsoft have finally amended a long-standing network bug and some sloppily coded hardware is yet to be patched by the manufacturers. So this one's not entirely Microsoft's fault (well, apart from allowing bad code to work to begin with).

I can't upgrade to Service Pack 3 on my XP machine because my Belkin router just stops working as wireless. Belkin haven't bothered bringing out driver updates for it for a couple of years, and i still see the model sold in some shops. Bit annoying.

Yep, that would be a little like owning a moble phone and going out to a public telephone box to make a call. Technology's moved on. :D

Ubuntu 9.10 - stupidly named Karmic Koala, but it's not a bad OS. I like being able to run a whole operating system from a CD rather than needing to install it.
