Look at the last JPG in my post.   That's the confirmation.

I used Orca Browser when I did this.    GreenBrowser wouldn't open the page......

Yeah, but i got that weird feeling that i'm not gonna get one...
I mean ok, you're from Canada (unless you're in Quebec) you should be fine.
But Slovenia is on the other continent. I think they won't even bother mailing it...

No as far as I am aware, Toronto is not in Quebec, lol...  ;D

Yes they will bother, trust me... my father also applied for those Windows updates on CDs (2 of them) and he got them without any problems...

Do not forget that there are some Microsoft branches in Slovenia too and all around the Europe as well as all around the World...  ;)

Damn, so my chances to get is 99 and 1  :'( even I filled the form. So I'll have to buy it by myself. 128MB is not very expensive here...
