Yes, finally - or as a friend who also plays World of Warcraft put it: congratulation on earning the achievement "Defeated Windows 7 on heroic difficulty on 4.8. 2011". Win 7 is finally activated, all partitions are working, I've installed most of the software I need and need only to test if my old scanner/printer work with Win 7 and then I'm done.
Oh, I also managed to paint a little. I plan to finish this over the weekend. It may not be the oh so grand painting that I was hoping for, but it's step in the right direction. Some photo-reference used.
