    Ooo look at all the tvs, I sence some tv envy on the go. I also have a 37inch samsung for the bedroom, a 26 inch for the babys bedroom. My 40ich is also the toshiba smart tv, wafer thin and light as fook, and the 50inch is an lg which is again rather thin and light comapered to the 50inch of old.

    And dont talk about walls and floor joists, my house has hay walls and wopping rsj's every 600, cant get a bloody fixing into anything, patresses everywhere and guess where the next noggin will be, my lights are all held in by cavity fixings.

    Hyper-V fun for me today, currently creating a virtual router for some migration testing.

    Do have a nice new Dell R720 virtual host to play with.

    Nice.

    I've been playing about with VM boxes in work.

    Most of our servers have have all gone virtual.
    SInce I'm not allowed to play with them, I made my own.
    Got windows 8, Android and Ubuntu running in VMs on my PC. lol

    Did build a Windows domain with a Ubuntu VM authenticated to the domain.
    That was an interesting build.
    Had to redo it a couple of times to make it easier for the others to get it working.

    About TVs and DIY.

    You rent. That's different to owning your own love pad.

    nice one karl!
    but you do realise the thieving scum will cost the tax payer lots of money just to be sent out picking up litter or something as punishment and not get the real punishment the low life deserves!
    boils my pi55 it does!
    and the sat nav will probably never be recovered either!

    well depends on his priors, the fact they have his DNA on record says a lot. its one thing having a guys finger print, but to actually have his DNA tells me hes a right cnut and hopefully with this offence and being caught, his punishment will be well deserved whatever that may be.
    Officer is coming to see me tomoro to get a clear statement.

    Can get 32gb laptop ram for £100 now, it's so cheap. I remember paying £100 for 4gb a few years ago!

    You tried windows 8 yet? I'm even eyeing up a Nokia Lumia 920 windows phone. Think I've been brainwashed whilst I've been at Microsoft lol

    8 is ok if you use it like 7 and ditch the tile bit. Need to keep current that's the only issue.

    You don't have any choice really.
    A lot of the main windows 8 apps use the tile/slate section but I think it works well.
    Type in what you want it finds it.
    The tiles are the start menu of windows 8.

    You can change it to be like 7 ;)

    The tiles are there but you switch to a standard desktop.

    This coming from Victor? haha

    Did you upgrade to windows Vista soon as it came out or windows 7?

    I use 8 in work to get with the time but i'm not a fan of it.
    Windows 7 is way better.

    Well I'm progressing well, have an internal virtual network configured, a VM running vyatta router as a route between my Migration Test Internal Virtual network and my live Network and have a basic Server 2012 image running, next create the domain, dhcp exchange and sharepoint server. Once that is done I will need to build a Server 2012 TS for our internal logging system. Not forgetting SQL 2012 to host the database.

    Downside having to use the new Server 2012 interface - yuk.
