I finally decided to retire my laptop last week after four years of excellent service, trips round the world and so on. It really struggled with just XP and VS\SQL2k5 on it, so the original software (Win98 yikes) got reinstalled and an ad was put out. I figured no-one would be interested. After one day of thirty people inquiring about the laptop in various accents, I wish I had asked for more. In the end, a nice retired gentleman named John came round and picked it up - just rewards for the early bird who phoned me first at 8.45am the day the ad came out. Plus I know he'll look after it too. Silver surfers rule.
