Agree or disagree with all the conclusions, I thought this was an interesting read.

When I'm down to nothing, I just go ahead and dream
And face the fact that I'm a circle in a world full of squares

I have no idea how many computers he has but breaking is not really the issue, he just likes trying new things.

I really do hope 8 has a better authentication process - I just re-built Katren's Vaio, totally legit, said it was authenticated, now keeps popping up to authenticate....

I'll go hack it tomorrow, MS can be very irritating when it comes to re-builds on 7....
