    Well, the thing that sucks donkey-kong sized D---s is that I've integrated a whole bunch of my services into SkyDrive. Right now, it is backing up pics from my iPhone, saving my Notes from One Note and I even have it connected to all of my other online storage to make one HUGE online storage space. This is gonna flubbit up all over the place.

    Anyway, I should have known something was up, because way back when I originally installed Windows 8 it plainly asked me to log into my SKYDRIVE account. It did this on both of the machines I use.

    But about a month ago when I set up a new Windows 8 Machine, it suddenly said "Log Into your Microsoft Account". I know what my eyes saw back in March, my eyes read "Skydrive" when I logged in.

    So I'm wondering if this is gonna foul up my online user accounts?

    I quit permanently storing anything online back when yahoo and msn served notice that they will no longer store my photos online.
    Yahoo moved them to flickr. I still store some photos on photo bucket and some data in skydrive to share with family & friends.
    If I need access to something on a different computer, 'logmein' works great.

    Hi there
    does it rhyme with WHITE !! add a letter that is the first letter in name of the drink that the English are forever drinking -- then perfect trademark. !!

    Cheers
