One of my work mates, one who as the sweetest voice you have ever known, bought a computer for 1000 pounds. She wanted it for using Microsoft Office with Internet access. When I found out I went ballistic, I never been so angry, I told her that that was too much money to on a spend computer. I was assuming it came complete with MS-Office. But she said that she bought it separately.


I bought a second-hand ex office computer for 50 pounds it already came with office already install in it. Because I don�t play games on it, and it does everything I need . I cannot even be bothered to change it with the new one I got at my mums house.

Mum's the word on what I pay for them multiplexer uplink modules. Chrysanthemums, too -- bloody expensive, especially on ma's day.

Expansive computers can be vexing. The way they talk and talk and carry on -- especially when they're running WINE.

I use WINE sometime, it works quite quickly even on a slow computer. Maybe your computer isn't set up right.

I think EFH was being (trying to be) funny there:

ex�pan�sive Audio pronunciation of "Expansive" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (k-spnsv)
adj.

1. Capable of expanding or tending to expand.
2. Broad in size or extent; comprehensive: expansive police powers.
3. Open and communicative; talkative or effusive: Wine made the guest expansive.
4. Grand in scale: an expansive lifestyle.

Notice definition 3 there.

Jokes always lose their punch when they have to be explained.

If it makes you feel any better I got it.

I did too. I'm merely averse to posting "I got it."
