View Full Version : English language nuances
Gentlemen let us consider that taking the machine back to factory condition via a recovery/restore partition on the hard drive is not an improbability yes?
I myself have done this very thing.
Holy smokes Wolfey:)
double negatives (http://leo.stcloudstate.edu/grammar/doubneg.html)
You even threw in a positive at the end. lol

What, explain yourself Sir!
Ok, as long as you explain why you asked the question (seriously:)).
is not an improbability yes?
Is complex with a double negative (not & im), then further confused by a final positive (yes?).
All of that could have just been: "is a probability".
It's a little grammatical nuance of yours that i've noticed. Kind of like my overuse of commas instead of starting new sentences:D

What you miss Seth is that the context of the sentence was verging on the rhetorical.
I might have said; "Is it not feasible?"
Perhaps. I miss a lot of things:D
Although I still don't understand why you asked the question in the context of the original thread.

The reason is very simple as the solution offered did not take in to account the now common practice of supplying a restore/recovery partition on the drive.
The days of supplying an OS disk with the box are gone Seth as you know.
