Nerd Humor

I run Windows Vista on my laptop at home and, stay with me here, I always get a warning that my "recovery drive D:" is close to capacity. In searching for a way to make the error message go away, I was told that I might want to consider "compressing the drive". I did so, and then got this message about the status as to how long it would take. I did a screen grab to capture it.

Come on BG, you should be rolling with a Mac and you wouldn't have to put up with that kind of crap.

Vista is junk.....on most Dell computers you have the option to "downgrade" to XP.....for a price of course.

How many ever, I can't wait, 10:34AM, or so I think right at this minute. But then again, I might decide to not give a shiate. Only time will tell.

Windows: Press PRINT SCREEN button. Then open a word processor file (or other) and PASTE.

Mac: Shift-Command-4 and draw a box around the portion you want. It takes a .jpg of the area and saves it on the desktop.

10:34. Nobody and mean NOBODY knows when the big catastrophe will happen, so stop with the Dec. 21, 2012.
(I actually think you meant Dec. 12, 2012, didn't you?)
