yeah they not paying anything so it hard to drill them down on
contractor issues, they do not use the laptop that much anyway cos
they all got android tablets of some fashion and they that cheap they
bin them and get another one if theres a problem.
so the problem will go away soon i hope.

i did notice that chrome browser is not supported on the vesion of
linux mint 13 running on that laptop.
Also came across the same problem soon with windows vista being
dropped by google chrome as well wonder if theres a chance of getting
some proper paid work for people not in position to replace there
windows vista computer/laptops just finding ppl willing to pay is the
hadrest thing and trying to keep the jobcentre from wanting to kill me
for doing this stuff.
