Step 1 - Buy laptop - God forgive me, but I went to PC World in Oldham at 1100 this morning and was out and "on the road" to Lancaster by 1130 - well it was a last minute emergency thingy....
Step 2 - Set up PC in Lancaster - turned it one to be greeted with a Windows Vista "Welcome Screen" with the words "Enter Password" - what bloody password ??
Step 3 - Get PC World to sort it. Various phone lines were bloody useless - "we can't get an answer at Oldham" etc etc etc. "You'll probably need to take it back there (!!)"
Step 4 - Discover PC World - in Lancaster - get them on the case - similar answer - "Can't get through to Oldham"...then Darren (bless him) said "Bring it in here - we'll sort it"
Step 5 - They did - so it's "Big Up" to Darren at PC World in Lancaster !! Laptop now up and running in Duncan's "student boudoir"
Step 6 - Drive home - problem - 12 mile tailback on M6 - chose A6 instead to avoid the problems - me and 5,000 others. Took 90 minutes to cover 15 miles !
Step 7 - Arrive home - eat tea (mmm Steak - poor old Peter still on mash type food - today mashed potato, cheese & fish).
Step 8 - Add the forgotten STS "exclusive pic" from yesterday ....Lee Blackshaw takes on Chris Carr..
Step 9 - Beer.... and this ...
