You should not direct questions at members by name. Apart from anything else, for all you know he might have just set sail on a six week Caribbean cruise.

the above answers are spot on.

"he might have just set sail on a six week Caribbean cruise."

Not yet.

Well done with the internal memory, all it needs is a bit of determination to do the job.

As mentioned before, you can up the memory by dropping the graphics chipset. But with 900Mhz for the system, you should see a significant improvement on multi tasking and photo manipulation.

Well I wish as well... but equally likely he might have broken his leg and be in hospital. I hope not but all members are not always here.

It is contrary to the forum rules anyway.
