A gnashing of teeth and rending of garments has broken out in a corner of a little island in the South China Sea.
Mister B is no longer able to send email attachments out.
Nor upload photos to the blog.
No idea why.
Tried all the usual: checked all the cables, checked all the settings. Googled to find out what the error message means.
Finally spoke to one of Netvigator's tech support. We spent an hour going this way and that. He was really good, knew his stuff. Yes, I'd even already tried doing a System Restore from a week ago.
So in the end he suggested what I dreaded: reinstall Vista.
Oh, that I might. Reinstall Vista, that is.
A good friend went to Wanchai Computer Centre 12 months ago and got me this laptop. Everything has been tickety-boo until now. Now, I discover that I can't find the receipt (and hence the name of the shop).
This, it turns out, is important. I need to change the Vista install cd, the one I have is in Chinese and I can't read Chinese (my bad) so I won't be able to follow the instructions..
So I am stuck for the moment.
