    This is more than ridiculous Owen. I told the new owner to delete the site, and it looks as if he has not done so. I'll remind him to try again. :mad:

    Cheers Otto, all I can say is "Why me?"
    At least I can get there now and again.
    Limiting my time on WW2Talk is actually a good thing.
    I spend far too long there.


    One thing I was going to ask, is the thread tools have been limited to "Delete thread " only.
    I can't lock a thread .

    Not sure about this Owen, you are the first to mention this, so I'm not sure if the problem is limited to you or just that you are the first to mention it.

    I'll head on over and take a look-see.

    Otto, why don't you have him modify his hosts file in the interim? Winders looks at that first anyway.

    Jeff,
    Thanks for the advice regards the minor alteration to Windows, even though I was rather wary.
    Thanks Adam for getting me to do it.

    Rather wary?

    Rightly terrified ;) told you it would be no bother, I can nag as well as you sometimes you know.

    Jeff mate, you're a star! :D

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    Good job, Adam. I forget that most people don't do away with all of Winder's "safety" features and don't boldly go forth into the shoal waters of the Windows Folder.

    Owen, do you want me to teach the fine art of wrecking the registry?

    I had a friend one time years ago that had run out of hard drive space so she started cleaning out unused files. You guessed it, she deleted almost the the entire Window folder, which contains the operating system. Needless to say, it would not boot the next day when she turned it back on.
