MS must try harder.

It is simple I select attachment, I find the file I want to send to my editor and ‘click’ it attaches itself to the email. I have tried this three times now and each time it says it cannot attach the file because I may not be connected to the internet.

Couple of things here first I am just writing an email not sending it (yet). Second I have been reading blogs FB and Twitter during this stupidity so either Windoze knows I am connected or it doesn't there really is no room for ‘may not be’.

I have more computing power here on this laptop than they had to execute the f******g moon landings and all Windoze can say is ‘may not be’ are they serious or are they just taking the p*ss. ‘May not be’, is just not good enough.

If Microsoft was a school child its report card would say “Must try harder”. “MS sets itself a low standard and consistently fails to achieve it’.

I wish I could afford a Mac!

If MICROS&%T designed cars:
1. For no reason whatsoever your car would crash twice a day.
2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.
3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart and drive on.
4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn, would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.
5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought"Car95" or "CarNT." But then you would have to buy more seats.
7. The oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single "general car default" warning light.
8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.
9. The airbag system would say "Are you sure?" before going off.
10. Occasionally, and for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key, and grab hold of the radio antenna.
11. Microsoft would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the car's performance to diminish by 50% or more.
12. Every time a new car was introduced, car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again, because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.
13. If you were involved in a crash, you would have no idea what happened.

I don't know about England but in the U.S. students can get a very nice break in the price of a MAC. Go to the APPLE website, select store and in the menu on the left choose "Education Store."

Or try open-source software - most of it is free, so better again.

It's not necessary to go use MS

Mozilla Thunderbird, OpenOffice, or even just Gmail. No need to use MS Office under Windows. If push came to shove, you could use Ubuntu instead of Windows.
