Just back from meeting Ian for lunch. Swung by my unit to pick up stuff to sell on ebay and scout-out some other stuff to sell later.

Back now and about to make some guide inserts for the top on the lathe cabinet.

Pleased my HDD USB enclosure has arrived, I'm thinking of doing a clean reinstall of XP on my laptop... Not sure I can face the job just yet. I'm also half thinking of upgrading to Windows 7... I'll see how the re install goes, if the back-up discs have gone poot... That's an option. Also keep meaning to get around to installing Linux on an old laptop. May take that job away on holiday with me.

I ran the Win-d'oh!s 7 compatibility check and all looks good.

Would rather not spend any money so will try the old "restore to factory default" XP discs first. My bet is that they'll be dead.
