    Hi

    I have just fixed up a friends Laptop, this included a
    format and re-install of XP Home SP2, this was done at my
    place for convenience.

    While installing the OS I had my Internet Ethernet cable
    inserted and when install completed I activated over my
    Internet Connection, this was all fully automatic.
    I also installed MSE and updated it over my connection.

    Now question is, when my friend takes the Laptop home and
    plugs it into their connection, will it use my ISP and account
    or theirs.

    If it will use my account how do I stop that before I give them back their
    Laptop?

    Thanks

    Daniel

    No your friend will use his ISP and his connection settings because
    connecting any device using Cat5 cable does not actually set anything
    permanently by default. so don't worry abut it and you don't need to do
    anything.

    The only thing you should do is to install SP3 before letting him lose
    on the net just for his own protection.

    Please, please change to non-caps for your signature. Makes it difficult to
    read. Please...

    Please please don't read it if you don't like it. I don't believe in
    small prints in any documents because they could be missed by innocent
    parties!

    Of course I don't read it simply because I hate CAPITALIZED text as much as,
    if not more so, than people shouting, or "ripping their asses and wearing
    them on their heads", as one expression goes in one of the languages I know.

    If you seriously think that you can hear my capitalized signature
    then clearly you have a serious mental problem. It is time to see
    your psychiatrist who can advice you better. There is a danger to
    let you lose on our streets because tomorrow you might hear voices
    from certain GOD to kill somebody you don't like. Please, please
    go and see your physician before you kill somebody using Microsoft
    Windows Operating system.

    Anyone who refers to himself using the third person neuter ("LD55ZRA OR ITS
    ASSOCIATES") deserves to be kill-filed. Especially if the poster includes a
    silly disclaimer as his signature ... and affixes a copyright notice to it.

    Plonk!

    Well said. The chap's a nutter. He cannot grasp the simple fact that paras
    of capitalized text are more difficult and more tiring to read that normal
    small letters. Capital letters are merely used to draw attention to the
    beginning of a new sentence or to surnames etc and very occasionally to a
    particular word one needs to stress when bolding or italics which are
    normally used to this end are not available.

    How did you work this out? Is it because you are one a nutter to
    know another?

    Now go and give a good suck to Zing's small c0ck!
