    Hang on a second whilst I shift some of these bottles.

    Right, the update is, between other tasks I tried to do some editing but was refused!

    It then occurred to me that it was trying to save me as I was sitting on the branch I was trying to cut off.

    Ok, so I boot from the DVD and it shows me the same map but still wouldnít let me edit anything either.

    Thats it, wasting valuable drinking time, so out with the Mint Disk, do your worst, and away it went.

    Less than a bottle later problem sorted.

    Installed all the documents, pictures, music, downloads.......etc. and weíre cooking with gas.

    Ok, the whole thing was painless except for his E-Mail.

    His provider is kinect (trustpower), and they wonít let me set up his E-Mail from my place.

    By their own admission you have to be be a customer of theirs before you can download E-Mails.

    You can set up say, Thunderbird, but you canít test it unless you are a customer of theirs!

    Hard to believe, but I was once a customer of theirs and couldnít download my messages whilst in Australia. I could read them courtsey of Webmail, but not download them.

    When I got home I engaged in warfare with their new IT Manager who advised he wasnít compromising the integritory of his service to accommodate me, and I advised him that other ISP providers would, so he could get stuffed.

    Iíve dealt with Vodafone (Clear) & Telstra, and donít have a problem.

    Seems this dick canít get his brain around the fact that people need to be able to read their messages when out of the coverage area.

    New Map, slightly different to old but works ok.
