My New Toy

I am sorry for not updating for a while, I had some personal issues that I needed to deal with, I have for the past 2 weeks been unable to update my blog or even read all of my favourite blogs, somehow I just lost the will to do that.
Now things are getting back to normal and I am hoping inshaAllah to continue enjoying the blog world. Thank you for the messages of concern, I really appreciated that.
I have been planning to buy a laptop for donkeys years but never really went ahead with it, as a parent I always thought that my family needs come first, that's until few days ago when I found a reasonably priced laptop with great specifications and I needed something to cheer me up, I went ahead and bought one and I am giving my PC to the kids as their PC is quiet old and slow.
So for few days now I have been trying to figure out Windows Vista and I am getting there, as soon as I got the laptop home, I set it up and personalised it and carried out all the updates which took about 4 hours but the sound was not working, so after trying everything I could I phoned up the support line, I was told to go to recovery and reset the laptop to factory settings! that was annoying and took few hours but Alhamdulellah all was well with my new toy :o)

Here it is!

Mabrook for the new laptop and glad that you are back (save &sound).
We all kind of missed your contributions to the Libyan society!!
I am happy that you figured out the new Window Vista, I can tell it’s a great invention I have it on my laptop too, it’s even much more easier that all the previous ones.
Anyway, enjoy your new toy!!

Except for the shared video memory your new toy is up to date state of the art. And you are now on the Wow-trolley with the rest of us Vista users.
