Now that I am retired having been many years a magistrate with a long awareness of the declining freedoms enjoyed by the ordinary citizen and a corresponding fear of the big brother state`s ever increasing encroachment on civil liberties I hope that my personal observations within these general parameters will be of interest to those with an open mind. Having been blogging with this title for many years against the rules of the Ministry of Justice my new found freedom should allow me to be less inhibited in these observations.

It is widely known that Windows XP is now in effect ex Windows XP. I have been using mainly an eight year old desktop and also a ten year old notebook as my main and back up computors both running XP Pro service pack 3 and supposedly virus protected. Indeed the desktop came originally with Vista installed but I had XP substituted instead.  Last week a trojan caused my desktop to go gradually down from having to start in safe mode to now not booting up at all. Today my notebook is operating only in safe mode but for how much longer I don`t know. I am off on a fairly long holiday next week and no more posts will be appearing until the second week in May when I hope by then to have mastered the workings of Windows 8.1 operating in a new all in one machine.

Hasta lavista baby; I`ll be back.
