Hey Everyone, Most of you know me :P, (as everyone has at least been pissed at me once or twice.) Anyway, I am an 11 year old and I have Aspergers Syndrome and Attention Deficit Disorder (Yes I kn-hey, look at the neat penny!), I am a very excited collector of builds Pre-Life. :P, eg. Memphis, Cairo, Chicago, Sparta, Interface Manager, and there final counterparts eg. Windows 98, NT 4, Windows 95, 3.1 and 1.01 :P and others. :P I also love Longhorn and I want to try Longhorn Fusion (BUT I DONT HAVE VISTA ANYMORE >_<), I might just pirate Windows Server 2008 :P.

Hi,

There is no reason to use pirated vista, download it.. install it keyless, dont activate, and last day before activate, run a console as administrator and type "slmgr /rearm" .. then activetion is reset, you can do that 3 times, giving 120 days (6 months).. with win2k8 its even better.. 60 days a time.

not 6 months, but about 4 months (30+30+30+30 = 120) with Server 2008 its (60+60+60+60 = 240) 8 months.

But just buy one, buy the SYSTEMBUILDER version, much cheaper and the only thing you are missing is the cover and box.
It has the Sticker (COA), DVD and Booklet.

I know how WildEye001 feels at times.... I have similar problems! :( Many people including the teachers treat me like I am sht at school even if I try my hardest in everything! :x :x :x :x

But if he wants to pirate Vista, just use the Vista Loader. I won't provide links of course, but with a bit of searching, it can be found, trust me! :wink:

But lets not talk too much about piracy here.

Hilarious :).

I am Mark Tuson, of Lancashire. I am 19 years old, and have spent most of that time either building, repairing (breaking), or programming my computers (no joke:)). I am a great fan of the Cup of Coffee (I take in about 8 episodes a day), but love a Guinness whenever I can find one (being of Irish descent, among other things*). I am [pretty much] the only person I know who can use a slide-rule, and who still uses BASIC where I want to solve a problem quickly.

I play the ukulele and run the official forum for the George Formby Society (http://www.the-resonator.co.uk - anyone here do phpBB3 themes for free>? :P), and I also collect old video games and try to recreate early electronics experiments (television, radio, etc...) at home.


* Irish, Scottish (actually, have Royal lineage, from the Stewart family :P), Jewish, English - you name it, I could probably find it somewhere on my family tree, somewhere.

Scratch that now. Things have changed.

The names Isaac, I recently left my job as a Security Officer because of severe Migraines and Chronic Stomach pain, I saw that I could not function as well as I could, but all was not that bad when I found I had received a 15K Bonus for "Voluntarily Resigning in the face of the current Economic Situation" which was a complete surprise to me.

I live in a small town just down from Brisbane called "Casino", but as I just sold my House, I will be moving in the next week to be closer to my kids as their Mom is taking on a second job.

I'm generally a very sarcastic and dry person who goes through some really funky mood swings at time (Andy understands, he lets slip some of my comments I make on BA at times), so don't take things so seriously if I give you a blunt answer. :D
