I'm sorry.  My connection seems to have molasses in it right now and I'm getting net-rage from waiting for pages to load.  Imagine a nice image and some wise words here and carry on, please.

Thanks.

    Carmen Reinhart Beware those who think worst is past
    My monthly allowance of 17 free articles at the FT has run out, so I'm afraid I can't share a few paragraphs as usual, but the title does say it all .
    I'll add on sheffpixie's link to
    Another Bubble Is About To Burst
    because everyone can see it . Three 15min youtube videos and very well done. Some of the clips on the US "stimulus programmes" are particularly memorable, such as George W Bush arguing for the "American Dream" Home Ownership Bill. ( my paraphrase. )

    That's the backdrop to all our other ddiscussions. Out now , invited for café croissants by one of my german 'employers'. His teaching pension is bigger than the salary of many french teachers ... but at least he shares it around . Late ! XX

  3. Chekhov - if your laptop came pre-loaded with Windows, look for a sticker on its underside with the Windows logo on it. This should have the serial number.

  4. As we have two threads today, perhaps people could decide which one they want to post on and which type of persona they want to adopt for each.

    Good guy, bad guy?

    Angel or demon?

    Right or left?

    Right or wrong?

    Play nicely, it could get confusing.

    Those with multiple personalities, though, could be in for a ball.

  5. Hi Thauma, yes there is a sticker with the serial number on it. Not sure what to do with it though!
    Any ideas?

    Whatever you want really. I didn't mean to offend, only trying to help. Shall I delete the other one?

    Why don't you just fuck off up your own arse?

  8. No, no.

    Please do not trouble yourself.

    I shall instruct my servant to bring you some.

  9. Oh. Didn't notice the other one!

    Chekhov, you should be able to download whatever version of Windows you've got off Microsoft's web site and use the key to activate it.

  10. Windows -> Office. Not woken up properly yet.

  11. Well, this should be fun: two threads running at once. I predict a riot!

  12. BTW; thanks Thauma, I'll give that a bash later on.

  13. Hope it works, Chekhov.

    I'm off to the other thread.

  14. Ok, I'll get me vaseline.

    Yeah - and I'm off to get a fucking gun.

    Hah, I knew you couldn't do it! You've got two personalities and they're both foul-mouthed gobshites.

    Au contraire, mon petit choux-fleur!

    As one of the greatest political analysts of the age has said:

    I play the long game.

    I know you will be able to keep up.

  16. So I'll leave myself with another classic, Radiohead's Just.
