No, your optic orbs have not been on a bender. You read correctly. After a very brief 20+ year hiatus, we have joined forces once again and are tooling-up to bring you a new Space Adventure, or SpaceVenture, if you will."

I had replaced the ZIF connector on it a couple years ago and it was working fine, however I haven't touched it in a over a year. She plugged it in and it no longer works. My question to everybody is: Does anybody have any experience with using one of the clones on Ebay? If so which one is the best? Thanks, your help is appreciated!"
NiK0laI (1012851) writes "TechWeb has posted an article regarding Vista's new license and how it allows you to only move it to another device once. How will this work for people who build their pcs? I have no intention of purchasing a new license every time I swap out motherboards.
"The first user of the software may reassign the license to another device one time. If you reassign the license, that other device becomes the "licensed device," reads the license for Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Ultimate, and Business. In other words, once a retail copy of Vista is installed on a PC, it can be moved to another system only once.
Elsewhere in the license, Microsoft forbids users from installing Vista Home Basic and Vista Home Premium in a virtual machine. "You may not use the software installed on the licensed device within a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system," the legal language reads. Vista Ultimate and Vista Business, however, can be installed within a VM."
