No I am NOT kidding. I gat about 100 messages. If I log in more than once a day I get another lot. It takes about 20 second to get a new screen up. I only get 25 messages at a time up so have to keep changing screens (another 20 sec each time). I cannot see that there is any facility to mark all messages and then delete them in Hotmail. In any case I cannot do that because I have my own messages mixed up with the Ubuntu messages which I keep stored on the system until I can store them into my computer.
Of course if I want to read the messages it also takes forevery to display them and then move to another and display that etc etc.
DOES ANYONE PERHAPS HAVE THE ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM WHICH IS THAT I CANNOT BOOT LINUX FROM MY HDD. I HAVE LOADED A BOOTABLE LINUX SYSTEM ON MY PC BUT IT WILL NOT BOOT.
WHEN THE PC BOOTS UP IT GOES THROUGH THE INITIAL BOOT ROUTINES OF TESTING MEMORY, FEATURES ETC BUT IMMEDIATELY IT TRIES TO LOAD LINUX FROM THE HDD IT COMES UP WITH A MESSAGE SAYING "NDLR MISSING" RETRY WITH A BOOTABLE PROGRAM.
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? IF I CANNOT GET IT TO WORK I WILL HAVE TO ABANDON MY ATTEMPTS TO ESCAPE FROM MICROSOFT.

> Another question: Every time I go into my emails I receive 50 or more message from Ubuntu Users with other problems which are of no interest to me. I then have to spend hours deleting these messages.
> You are kidding, right? I mean, HOURS? Whatever email client you got, get rid of it immediately and replace it with something better (anything will do)!
> But really, you ARE kidding, right? In case you are not, in my case I just click something like "All messages" to select everything, then I can click "Delete" to delete them all in a second or two. How can this take HOURS? Well, yes, I realize it now. You ARE kidding. He he he! Or? Hm… This is a really strange world, isn't it?
> Actually I never delete any messages at all, I just file them, making them disappear from my inbox. If I have a problem, I can still search them and if I'm lucky I can find that someone already asked the question I had, and that someone else already replied to it. That way I don't have to bother people with problems that was already solved months ago… This means of course that I am using a lot of space for my email, in my case 417 MB, but still, this is only 6% of what GMail allows me to save. And no, I don't use an email client at all, since GMail is webbmail, but I can if I want to (and I do sometimes…) but i still don't have to save anything locally if I don't want to.
> But I still wonder, taking HOURS to delete only 50 messages? If we say ONE hour, it still means that it takes more than one minute for EACH message. I can READ the message, give it a short reply and then delete it in less than one minute (maybe not if the message contains a lot of text however). Is that what you try to do?
