Windows 7 --

Every bit as fucked (maybe more so) as Vista.

"Connect To" function is now buried somewhere in "My Computer" or "Control Panel."

-- No, you CAN'T create a shortcut for it.

I spent an hour in CostCo working on an HP laptop w/ Windows 7. I'll be damned if I could figure out how to set up an Admin. Acct.

(And I'm not at all naive when it comes to OS.)

I think maybe I'll look at a Mac.

In the end, this stimulus, just like prior doses, will only worsen the condition it is meant to cure. When it wears off, the resulting recession will be even bigger than the one that everyone assumes has just ended. Until the impulse to fight recessions with government stimulus is quashed, genuine economic growth will never return. A string of ever-worsening recessions will eventually lead to what will be the next Great (Inflationary) Depression. But for now, enjoy the bubbly.

Why in the hell would you think a Costco display would let you setup an Admin account?

The damn things are in Demo mode stupid!

As far as a shortcut to the Connect function Make a C++ script to open the socket and place a shortcut on the desktop.
