Questions and Comments to Readers

I will be posting to the blog as we travel. Nothing to long or involved, just updating as to where I am, what we may have seen, that kind of thing. I am quite well known in my circle of friends for writing of my Mexican adventures! Just ask any of them.....especially R in Toronto! Last year we spent 2 weeks in Costa Rica and it took me 50 chapters to tell the story of our adventure! I plan to write up the account of this adventure but not sure if I will post it to the blog or just send it to interested friends. We'll see.

A question to my computer smart readers: I absolutely HATE Windows Vista!! I have the CD that came with my last computer for restoring Windows XP. Can I just put it in this computer and overwrite Vista and have my old operating system back???

Yes, you should be able to use the disk that came with your previous computer but you will need to use the serial # associated with that copy of XP. Possible problems: The CD you have may only work in computers manufactured by that company who provided the restore CD. You should, if it works, be able to user the serial # as MS allows for (I believe) up to 2 installations of XP for personal use.

I'm voting for long blog posts along the journey.

Wayne, have a look at this page:

Just in case you actually do not have a CD at hand. ;-)

BTW: Naughty people have written a lot of small programs to deactivate the registration and activation processes of XP... ;-)
Google with a few keywords will tell you more...

I'll leave the decision to write small or large reports to you, as it is your travel...
From my experience I know that it gets very annoying to write up small notices or a summary every day.
But the more you will tell us, the more interesting it will be, I am shure. :-)

Have a nice weekend! :-)
