How can I find that solder bridge/pad thing in Eagle? No idea what it is called.
And freaking Vista keeps stuffing things in some virtual users folder so I can't find them when I want to re-use them!
having to confirm everything all the time
I doubt swapping to 7 will change anything, I've thought about doing so but it would be just too painful. What I have done is disable nearly all the clever graphics etc on Vista. It now looks like XP and runs a lot faster.
you may want to look really closely at your backup strategy
Hard drives DO fail.
backups do no good if you have to reinstall the applications
