That just because an entity has a means of destroying another entity and a motive for doing so, that doesn't necessarily mean it is the right thing to do.

I'd recommend making a ghost image of your computer if you choose to play

Does it make an exact image of the machine? Cause if it backs up your files thats all fine and good but if a system file gets destroyed have fun reinstalling from scratch.

Why would anyone ever play this game.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.

I have no clue. I've had this machine for three weeks and barely used it. I'll have to learn about this new OS... it's a long process.

That stinks...my cousing bought a MAC after YEARS of me giving him free advice on a PC. He replaced his like 10 year old piece of garbage PC that he kept saying he wanted to upgrade.

He got the Mac and was like "Can you help me set it up." I tried but man it sucked. He had no clue that Macs and PC's were different which was funny. he thought he was just buying a neat looking computer.
