Hi Gus
It is good to be in touch with you, and thanks.

It is a dual boot XP Ubuntu desktop, with XP running very slow....
The reinstall is a good idea, although importantly as always, there is 
some data (photograps) on the machine (maybe in Windows) so a reliable 
backup or data extraction would be important first.

  They are very active  with travelling about so I expect they could 
easily transport  to you by arrangement whatever. I have failed to 
find any local businesses which could take on this sort of work.
