HNY!
Just sent to another n/group:
"As do I. My wife, however (who uses PCs at school), uses a Mac and I do believe that she is soon to pass her spare MacMini over to me. Don't get me wrong; I love RISC OS; I hate MacOS; but I'm not immortal and I really would like to see on a computer the digital photos I've taken sometime before the world ends in 2012."
It's the last bit. It just doesn't sound right. Originally, I had "I really would like to see the digital photos I've taken on a computer sometime before the world ends in 2012." But that sounded even worse. All the variations I've tried don't seem to work. I'm stumped! Just a few minutes into the new year - the explosions still occurring! - only three glasses of port, and I can't sort out a simple English sentence.

HELP!!

Tricky one! How about "... but sometime before the world ends in 2012 I really would like to see on a computer the digital photos I've taken ."

I really would like to view my digital photos on a computer sometime before the world ends in 2012.

Thanks. I had several more.
I really would like to view my digital photos on a computer sometime before the world ends in 2012.

So you're not optimistic either?
Slurp. Happy New Year.

Such clarity of thought so early in the new year! Drink always seems to get my main bruddled.

I'm optimistic in a nervous sort of way.
The world-as-we-know-it could end before 2012, but I would really like to live until then, even if only to get a free TV licence.
Slurp. Happy New Year.
