There have been an awful lot of questions around the January Action Pack recently and it continues to be one of the most popular pages on my blog. To recap, the January Action Pack contains the following:
There have been lots of questions around the Vista version and the upgrade process.

There are numerous other questions such as continuing to use XP and Office 2003 CD's and I'm pleased to say you can. The ever resourceful Mr Overton has a full FAQ on his blog that I'd strongly encourage you to read.

I've had a few people ask about this recently and seen a fair bit of traffic to my blog posting on gadgets vs. widgets so thought people may appreciate this great post from Richard at Conchango who has a great laundry list of resources to help you go build them.
Onward friends...let the gadgets rain down!
