Luck has nothing to do with this, you are just plain good at what you do!

SP3 is almost invisible to the average user.... Most things that changed are in the background..... Actually if you do regular updates this SP3 does very little.................Pete

So far, I would agree with your statements entirely. This morning, I'm going to poke around a bit and see if I can find any "changes". I used my laptop at practice last night (programming my guitar amp), and so far no problems.
