Many thanks for the replies. I found the comments both interesting and informative.
I don't look good in a tinfoil hat so am going to disconnect from the internet and put the lappy away.

As an aside I am having trouble with my smart phone. My eyesight is going and need something with a bigger screen.
Does anyone have a 10" tablet they might like to sell me cheap. I have been looking at tablets on Trademe but there is so many in my price range that I am not willing to take a gamble on getting some real crap.
A while ago I bought a $66 dollar Laser tablet to see what the size was like. It was good but very basic so I invested in a much more expensive HP.
What a heap of s##t it turned out to be and last week it got binned, The $66 laser is still chugging away.
