Isn't it great that this great free host is explaining the basics of computers to their users? See for yourself: http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/geo/transfer/transfer-02.html.

I got there from one of the sites which had this 'bandwidth exceeded' message, searching for any indication how much bandwidth they do give their 'customers' anyway - because I see this 'exceeded' page more often than the actual sites...

Listen guys, its a well known fact that Compaq/HP do more to educate users about how to use their computers than anyone else in the world.

Dont take my word for it.....I'll let their Technical Support site do the talking....

It's a wonder that they don't give out huge amount of transfer with that bad math.

hehehehe. Id rather have an Any key than the lame excuse for a window printed on a piece of plastic that has not been used in ten years I currently have.

At least then it would get some use.

The Windows key stinks. So many times I have hit it when playing some game only to crash me out of it. I never figured out why they put a key on the keyboard that the only function is to crash programs. :pain:

That Windows key has saved my life a few times when the mouse stopped working. It's also much easier just to press it, push the upper arrow and twice "Enter" to shut down the computer than to navigate your mouse there.

I don't know about you guys and gals but if I need my start-menu for some reason (normally to turn the blasted thing off), I just hit Ctrl+Esc...
