    I think if you have a computer that can run it, get Vista. Better security and some cool features. Only about 15% of computers already in homes are powerful enough to run it though; so for most people, they'll get Vista when they buy their next PC or laptop.

    I will put up a donation button; that has been a plan.

    Thanks for considering the re-arrangement - and the donation site. I've wondered about that.

    We have a copy of Vista but haven't installed it yet. I had thought about asking on the Bone and Pub if anybody here is using it yet. I've mentioned that we might want to put it on my laptop first, since I have nothing stored on there (I use it for writing then always move that stuff to a disc). May be a project for tomorrow.

    But then we get back to the learning curve of learning how to use the new program! I think the older I get the more I don't like change.

    I've done loads of clean installs and reinstalls of various versions of Windows and it generally isn't very hard -- just make sure you read it all in advance and then take it slowly. Oh and back up everything first of course!

    Computers are frustratingly logical. I am working on the new board and could not get rid of the outside border's blue colour. It is a very think line so I began to think it was my eyesight from looking too long at the screen, not actually a blue line I thought I'd set up as black! It took me ages to realise there was a little bit of code that actually had the colour written in and I had to change that, not just change the colpours on the drop down menus. But then at the same time I felt good that it really WAS blue and it wasn't my eyesight! And that I'd figured out the problem and of course it was perfectly logical.

    I have found an add-on that goes with this new board that allows expanded profiles so think I might try adding that on to see if it will work. Also we have a calendar function so people can upload playdates, shows, walks, etc that they want to highlight -- basically anything cavalier related. Plus it will show birthdays if you want to put yours in your profile (there IS an option not to put the year!

    Ok we should be moving to the new board in the coming days if the practice transfers work well. I am on my own work deadlines at the moment so ust haven't had the time to try to move it.

    But I do have the new profiles system installed which is really nice -- though need to mke sure this will work smoothly.
