I'd almost forgotten that one

But it might not be appropriate in this case. :)

It was an Ode to "The Man, The Legend, The Scummy One". Stop Trolling me. I am upset enough already.

Step in. Look out.

We are each grieving in our own peculiar way. Be well with you.

Not trolling

At least not intentionally. We all hurt right now.

Instead of focusing on how this affects us personally, we should try to be understanding of others as well.

After all, right now? It's all about Scott's family and what they are going through. Not about how we are dealing with this news.

Truly a classic.

Some of his finest advice. It should be followed to the letter.

I suspect you have mixed releases

by NickNielsen In reply to vista

The product keys for OEM versions (like that which most likely came installed on the Acer) and retail versions (possibly what is on the recovery disc) are not interchangeable.

Your friend may need to contact Acer for a recovery disc.
