    Re: Phone calls from "Spark Networks"

    I'm planning a trip to Mumbai. I will wear my witch doctor's hat and I'll hunt them down. I will, I will! And I'll take my big talking stick to insert... [insert word appropriately]

    Re: Phone calls from "Spark Networks"

    I've had a few similar, Tony, but without the courteous "goodbye." Just a disconnect. I assumed that they realised that I am the guy who pronounces curses on them and decided it was wiser not to...

    Re: Phone calls from "Spark Networks"

    Three calls yesterday, all at inconvenient times, from "Spark." It seems after they were unable to contact me, they are going to disconnect my landline AND my internet within 24 hours! "press one...
  4. Re: Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    I understand that it works well for many people. Just that my usage is a little different from most. It is fine for what it is but just not ideal for me.
  5. Re: Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    Thanks Gary

    I have similar with my xtra and gmail addresses with one slight variance so that I can differentiate at a glance which mail comes from where. I rarely use gmail if I can avoid it and...
  6. Re: Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    I do have a gmail account as a backup but I do a lot on an email list hosted on an American listserve. Any posts sent from gmail are not distributed to the originator, only the other subscribers. A...
  7. Re: Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    Yep, once more saved from the ravening jaws of the g-monster. Of course, it is good to know that we can implicitly trust everything that Spark tells us!

    As a matter of interest, are there any...

    Re: Phone calls from "Spark Networks"

    I didn't really want his wife and kids to croak. I don't mind if he chooses to, though.

    His kids will probably emigrate to NZ on student visas and run the corner dairy in your street.

    Re: Phone calls from "Spark Networks"

    If the Indian police take as much notice of scammers as they do of rapists, I wouldn't hold out a lot of hope.

    A couple of years ago, I let the guy waffle on for about 30 seconds and told him that...
  10. Re: Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    Miracles happen apparently. So far today Outlook 2007 has performed exactly as it should, despite the fact that I have made no changes. Of course, it was noting to do with Spark creating...
  11. Re: Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    The mystery deepens. I just had half a dozen out of perhaps 15 have managed to find their way into outlook. I am beginning to suspect some sort of filtering by Spark although the missing ones have...

    Thanks Wainui.

    The settings are all correct as you show. However, the error message has changed to

    I have not managed to reproduce the original error message but I will keep trying and...
  13. Unable to download POP3 email from Exra.

    I can send email no trouble but although incoming reaches the webmail inbox, Outlook 2007 cannot retrieve it and produces error 0x800CCC90. I got hold of Spark on their chat line but the best he...

  16. Re: Never mind climate change, beware the lycra loonies.

    Unless things have changed markedly, it is my understanding that a bicycle can stop much quicker than a car or larger vehicle. So why is it so necessary to swerve when the time taken to decide to...
  17. Re: Never mind climate change, beware the lycra loonies.

    Perhaps we need gun laws similar to the good ol' US of A. Shoot the offenders on sight, cyclists, motorists and pedestrians alike. It may not modify the behaviour of others but it may reduce the...

    Re: Bluetooth to context menu
