Starkers, any word on the operating system for the new setup?
Sorry, but today [Monday] was not a productive day for me. As a result of pain and insomnia, I was up from Saturday morning 'til I was dead on my feet in the early hours of Monday morning, meaning that when Microsoft in Sydney was open to receive my inquiry about the purchase, I was in bed snoring my head off. I've not had the best time of it when it comes to sleep, either, but I will make the effort to get that sorted out today [Tuesday] for you.
Starkers, let me know if you need someone in Konas region to get that os.
Yes, that might yet be necessary. If Microsoft Sydney cannot help me to make the purchase for kona's region then I'm going to have to come up with another way, and that could well be the answer. I just didn't think it would be that difficult to gift Win 8 to someone in a different region, but that's the way it is, It's like I said to the MS rep the other day: "You can't want my money that badly if you're putting obstacles in my way.
Being that I slept all day yesterday, I didn't manage to sort out my account issues I mentioned to you regarding Paypal, either, but once I have I'll be able to transfer the funds directly to kona so that he can make the purchase with the MS store in the US. Now that would be the better way as it would be direct and there'd be no time delay, but if I have to resort to a 3rd party method for whatever reason, then I will contact you by PM to see what we can arrange.
Now kona, please don't worry, I will get you Windows 8 for sure. I wouldn't make you an offer not to follow through on it, so it will happen once I've made the necessary arrangements, okay.
I may not have contributed but starkers did and I am glad he did
Um, I wouldn't have been able to contribute or help kona without your continued help and support in my life, so yeah, you contributed.
