    All I can say is that after living in the Middle East for 4 years, it was clear that the burial MUST take place within 24 hours, otherwise the spirit could not pass into their equivilent of our heaven and if the Americans were seen to be preventing that then they would lose a lot of Arab friends, notwithstanding the fact that he may have been refused entry at the gate in any case!

    but didnt the arabs refuse to accept hs body to be buried in their country? hence the reason why he was dumped at sea.

    But imo the whole thing happend pretty quickly. I have also been told tha pictures of osamas dead body have been banned from being published to the public which doesnt help with the theory that many people dont know if they believe that osama is really dead or not

    "we will fight them on the beaches, kill them, then take a package holiday in their home town and ravage their women..... we will fight them in the whore houses of the world, sniff out the product of their desire, impregnate them with Bubonic plague, then watch them die slowly whilst singing "Rule Britania" over a cold pint of Carlesburg..... only because Carlesburg make the best speeches in the world :D

    Word on the street with some of my Army Buddies is that the death of Osama Bin Laden was actually a hugh mistake, a Delta Force patrol was sniffing out the area when Osama came running out of his tent chanting and screaming, he had just watched the United Arsenal game on the Sky Terrorism channel and was actually chanting "up the Gunners", the riflemen in the section took him literally and shot him thinking he was a suicide bomber.

    My mother's a librarian. If it was her library she would have sorted them out.

    I think you'd be well within your rights to tell them to be quiet. If they refused, and the librarian refused to help, then you're stuck I guess.

    #1 get a geniune copy
    #2 do not discuss hacks & warez on TPU
    #3 call up M$ and talk to them about the activation issue

    Thank you

    :twitch: :eek:

    My Windows is perfectly genuine. I was not discussing anything to do with fake/pirated Windows.

    Isn't there a problem with genuine user's who upgrade to SP1 and then have their system tell them that it's not genuine even though it actually is?

    The reason I'm asking is simply because I've read about it whilst browsing the net... just wanted to know if this was a issue or not.

    I've upgraded myself and a few of my flatmate's computers and haven't had that issue.

    What's the margin of error with a sample size of 4?

    Call up M$ support, if your copy is found to be geniune then they will reactivate it. even if its not they will probably activate it. because Pirates usually dont have the guts to call up support and try to pass off their copy as geniuine when they know everyone in the bay has downloaded the same copy and distributed it

    What was it you said...


    :rolleyes:



    :slap:

    But yeh, I guess that would be the only thing I could do, just ring up support and let them sort it for me.

    are you implying that you are using a pirated version of W7?

    Not at all... just found what you said here specifically


    was pretty openly talking about how to get a pirated Window's genuine.

    Anyway's I'd rather this not turn into some tit for tat :) Just was concerned about updating to SP1.

    yes but it doesnt mean that they are doing to activate it for every tom, dick and harry that calls up complaining of activation problems. they will check the key on the system and if there is indeed over 1000 activations under the 1 same key they they will most likely refuse to help you.

    bit of a rant....

    I placed an order with DABS last tuesday for 2 GPU coolers. at the time they had 10-23 units in stock so i placed an order. I had placed an order with a different retailer but their ETD was retarded -- something like 2-3weeks. I needed it a lot lot quicker then that so i cancelled with the retarded guys and placed an order with days who had 2-3days ETD which was more acceptable.

    but boy was it the wrong move. I should have stayed with the retarded guys as i had also put in an order for a 5850 with them a bit earlier the ETD on it as it was a little on the high side so i gave them a poke via email, and since my details had already cleard with them they were happy to put it in the post so i could have it before the Royal wedding started.

    I should have had my order from DABS by now. If not last thursday then at least saturday or tuesday just gone.

    I had always logged on to DABS to check on my order and also stock levels of the cooler i was buying, this morning i logged on only to find that the stock level had been updated to 'orderd upon request' and my order status was still pending.

    which really really pissed me off. as i had waited almost a whole week for something that now had no ETA. what made matters worse is that I was never notified that they had indeed run out of stock and asked if i still wanted to proceed.

    I canceled my order and left them a long rant about it. because I will never know if they even had any stock in the first place.

    Im still waiting for a response from them (if theyre gonna give me one) and i went back to the retailer with the retarded ETDs which were happy to fast track my order so i could get it a little earlier which makes me feel like an idiot for not sticking with them in the first place.
