    Get a Mac. They're expensive but they last because they're not filled with cheap components like the ones that Dell puts in.

    A good Mac will last 20 years and still be useful.

    Hmmm...well, I just got my computer back up and running after the power supply appeared to have gone, but now my monitor appears to be corroding, as the colours at the bottom left of the screen have gone odd. The blue has turned to an odd lime-green colour. Any ideas as to the problem? I'll get my Dad to have a proper look tomorrow.

    Ah well, despite the occassional irritations, computers are great things.
