    Gidday young fella :P
    I ran over 365 Monkeys when I was a young idiot, so since my recent heart concerns I decided to get a pinched nerve and a few other issues with my spine. But hey, I'm so good looking nothing can get me down.

    *and with that, antspants took one last look over his shoulder and ran for his life, far from the maddening crowd*

    Hope you are well Edwin :P

    eeeGad my man, you're a Gold Member Guru, V.I.P
    (I'd expect nothing less)

    That's a thought, thanks Bree. I shall try it in the morning after I get this Monitor removed from my foot.
    Apparently whilst I was out Win 10 decided to deactivate. This is weird as nothing has changed in over 2 years with my PC less recently the Creative Update.

    I tried running slmgr /ato to no joy. looks like I will have to try an in-place repair or fresh install.

    I clicked on support at MS. I nearly died, chat session started in 60 seconds, and a tech connected remotely, fixed it via Simulated Phone activation in 5 min.

    I think I shall buy the company.

    Thx again everyone

    Hi there, Sin. How are you my good friend? Long time, eh?

    Have you checked how many devices you have listed in your MS account? Sounds like you may have reached a limit if there is a limit. Heaven only knows what's in the EULA.

    I see you have it solved. What was it? Did he say?

    My Hippsie My man.
    Great to read you.

    "Robin" avoided answering the question. I am still no wiser but assures me that my copy is now re associated with my MS account and I should only need to enter my email address if reinstalling. She/He really avoided telling me and I asked 5 different ways.
    I have 2 legitimate, individual installs. They just share one MS account.

    I wonder if it was "Robin" from 8 forums :P He/She was as quick as a whip and not one spelling error or misguided english phrase. I'd of blind guessed an American. LMAO, not that everyone else is slow except maybe we Aussies.

    Lifes great mate, body just keeps getting worse but as I told Edwin I am too good looking to care. My Hippie slash wildman slash superhuman days caught/catching up on me. Floating on that boomerang called life, fighting off woman (my wife) and forever shaking my head in disbelief at my teenager.

    You're well I hope, better be.

    I was just on 8F looking around. Wonder what happened to a lot of members there. Hardly any regs here from there.

    I'm doing great, thanks. Retired now with a good pension. Yes, the body surely isn't what it used to be and, yes, my twenties most likely taking a toll on it too. What a great time we had, though. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Still rockin n rollin. :)

    Glad to see you're doing good. The wife and teener are normal. That's life.

    After midnight here and yawning my arse off. You take care and don't be a stranger.
