Is it just me. This week my Aurora on XP has been excruciating slow. It's killing me. I type the report and it's like normal but when I translate it to sendable file, it's so sloooooooooooooooooooow.
I have to save it and transfer it to my Windows 10 computer and use Total. I'm not accustom to Total but it's not that easy to use. And when I use the maps the comps are in wrong location. Ugh. I'm afraid is this the moment when I have to use Total because of the sloooooooooowness of Aurora on my XP.

Well, you're using 2 antiquated software packages, so I really am not surprised. Just bite the bullet and switch to Total. It really is not that much different and has some kickass features you probably will love.

The problem is same as the demise of Windows. People never got use to Windows 7 or 8 and had to revert to Windows 10 to help transition from XP. Software companies need to not change interface and nomenclatures because users do not like radical changes. I saw the whistles of Total and they're superior but not impressive to me. I just want to complete and send report fast in old computer.

Finally got the XML file and sent to client. It took me 1 and half hours also eating my lunch and being on AF before I got transfer to Total and change to XML file. Total is frustrating and got my blood pressure higher because of difficulty in using it. Come to think of it I don't like Windows 10 either because it's still not intuitive to use. How I miss XP. XP was the best.

I've learned to adjust. I type my reports in the XP computer. When it comes time to send file to client, I transfer the file to my Windows 7 laptop which is much faster in converting and sending file.

Time to retire that XP machine.
Maybe we can put together a group to drag you kicking and screaming into the modern world. :ROFLMAO:
