Graphic problems with Locomotion

If you're playing Chris Sawyer's excellent game, Locomotion on Windows Vista or Windows 7, then you may experience after a minute or so ingame, that all the colours go all purple and green. Don't worry though, don't uninstall the game or chuck it away - you can still play it!

History of Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windows 7 has already been released as a Beta version recently and the Release Candidate version is rumoured to be due around May time. Now it doesn't seem all that long ago that I remember my Father showing me Microsoft Windows XP and I was well excited! The way the screen faded to grey when you clicked the Shut Down option.
