The new drop-down menu here on the forums link shows Helproom then Windows 8..7..Vista etc. No mention of the XP workhorse that served so well for many years. Used to be the King of problems in Helproom...

That's progress I suppose but Win 7 is its true offspring, Vista, in my humble opinion, was dissapointing to say the least.

I've just read the PCA email with this link in it Windows 8: One OS to Rule Them All? Has PCA towers now relocated to the depths of dark Mordor? Have some of us now got a mission in hand to rescue the staff from evil forces? All this to do, and the Great White Wizard has been missing since the re-launch. Is something sinister happening now that the snows of winter are with us to hide what's happening?

Normally the dropdown bar would show the most popular and well used parts of PCA first.

I can't believe that they are set in the most popular order.Obviously they are set in that order for a reason.

I did notice that they have been moved around recently

Maybe I should get out a bit more often.

Do you want to sell it? If you do and the price is right, e-mail me via the envelope.

Yes e-mail me via the envelope as well and I will give you the W/8 version for it.

But it will need to be in the next 10 minutes.[ Just in case ]
