    No, I still have that copy of Windows 8. It just has issues with activation. That guy sent me a copy of Windows 8, no money given to me. Why would I get a free network adapter? I didn't ask for one.

    the guy said he sent you the $40 via paypal because he thought there may be issues activating a foreign copy of the software!

    from your thread:

    "Just to clarify things here, I enabled kona to purchase Win 8 by forwarding him the funds via Paypal to download the $40 discounted version from Microsoft... hence his key would be legitimate and there should be no issue with contacting MS support to have it re-activated over the phone.

    The reason I did it this way rather than purchase a copy here in Oz and send it to him was/is because of the regional differences, and that he may have had issues activating a product key that was assigned to a different region. Well that's what the lady at MS told me, so I opted for the 'download a copy in his own region' method to avoid any potential installation/activation hiccups."

    The only thing I've learned from skimming this thread is:

    Kona is massive, not only in his trolling abilities, but in his girth as well.

    No I didn't spend the money on anything else. I used the money he gave me and bought a copy of Windows 8. I then got an email from Microsoft with a COA code and a link to download a copy of Windows 8.

    Kona is massive, not only in his trolling abilities, but in his girth as well.
    I'm not a troll, nor do I need to be made fun of.

    LOL , the more i read Konas posts and threads the more i believe he is a genius and he has made an art form of taking the piss over the years, i mean you couldnt make this **** up, Kona has successfully puled the wool over every bodies eyes and is sitting back laughing at just how stupid people really are.

    I actually dont mind Kona, i think he provides great value and humour to the forum and he seems like a decent bloke/alter ego, congrats Kona, you win the title of the biggest piss taker on MTBR lol, and i seriously respect that lol.

    I hear ya Tone's, and hope all is well with you, but there's a difference between stupidity and kindness. If there is karma he's gonna get it in the end. It's not just mtbr, he's international, just google "Kona0197 help" and there's pages of sh@t to back up everyone's claims.
    Round and round we go

    Bwahahaha buddy, funny stuff i hope your well mate, but this is what i mean, just how silly is he if he is on multiple forums getting all this free stuff?
    Maybe the people giving it to him are the silly ones (no offence to the peeps that have shown great kindness in donating him bikes and parts)
    I really dont know what to think, but as i said one couldnt make this stuff up, its priceless lol, i just dont know what to think.
    No offence intended to you Kona if you are actually legit.

    Such love around here....

    Kona just ride the damn bike and enjoy it. Work on your health and the ride will get better in time. When you feel tired, keep going and push on.

    Kona, this actually has potential. You might make some royalties and get a handsome check up front. I'm sure they can protect your identity and you day job here and other where can continue without missing a beat.

    I don't know, Tone's... He certainly hasn't pulled any wool over my eyes. I don't understand why people keep feeding the troll but at least it makes for some good threads. I guess as long as you put a smiley or winky face at the end if your posts it makes everything just peachy. <-- see

    If you would bother to investigate those leads you would see a majority of them are simply asking for help with computer related issues or other problems. Only a few are about getting anything from others. And the reason there is so many is because Wincustomize.com, where I have been a member for over a decade, has forums tied in to 5 other forums. So you are getting multiple leads on the same thread.

    You all should feel ashamed. Picking on me just to make yourselves feel better. Do you not have better things to do?

    Most of Kona's posts are odd. He's a real piece of work.

    Kona, you make me laugh, you make me cry, you make me wonder. You certainly make things interesting around here.

    Just keep riding that bike.

    A bit too hot for me to ride today. Temps above 70 have a strange effect on me. As for being here, I was thinking about logging out for awhile.

    Above 70 degrees is too warm for you?

    Perhaps it's time to migrate back North to your Summer home in Alaska?

    I've never been to Alaska and never lived more than 3 months outside of Oregon. Temps above 70 give me headaches, dizzy spells, and sometime nose bleeds. It has something to do with my inner ear, yet no Doctor has been able to figure it out completely. I'm also very light sensitive, and sunglasses don't always cut it.

    Kona, I think you need to go back to Mars. Earth isn't very good for you, it would seem.

    Is it cooler in the mornings? Is it possible to ride in the early morning?
