Have to agree that the registry was a bad idea. Drivers, well it is always nice to have control of your hardware so that you do not have two worry about hardware manufacturers having to provide drivers since thier hardware is different. It is a lot better than it use to be. Certainly also MS is much more of a target for hackers than apple because it has a much larger user base. I use to be an Apple person, and I got frustated with Apple's poor performance, and high cost. Maybe they are better now, but back then they designed hardware in house, and I did not think it was all that great except that they used the much better 68000. Did not like the IMac, among the problems was not enough power on the USB.
Apple is probably checking that you are registering from an Egyptian ISP, and will refuse the registration based on that, and when you tried to use you dutch aunt ID the system might think you are trying to steal the identity of someone else (different country, different names ... )
I was suggesting that SHE, herself register from the netherlands (dutch/european ISP) and you can use her account.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Also, does anyone here how to get a notarized copy in the netherlands, because my aunt doesn't know ?!
I've lived in Holland and found it is almost impossible to get things like this done because it is impossible to find out how to go about it and no Dutch civil servant will do anything that is not explicitly approved by their job description document. Good luck.
