    Installed ETKA 7.3 (downloaded the lot from that link in under 45mins :icon_thumright: ).

    No prices though. Haven't had a look at getting them working. Have you???

    Welly, Deffo mate. I might even clean her car......no wait, shes taking it work. O well, I can't do her car. lol

    jb0O, you can install 7 over the top of it but not the best thing to do really.
    If shes got issues or trojans then I would just format it and start again.
    Another option is you or her is paranoid over losing work or information, buy a new harddrive and keep the old one as back up.

    Works a treat over here.
    The odd little bit missing but that could be down to age.
    the repair kit for the rear load cover for example.

    Cheers Axios. Just what I thought really.

    I've convinced her that her work will be fine being transferred over. Nightmare though as my External is bust so I'm having to transfer over 5GB onto some webspace and store it though.

    Yeah. I've checked them up against my Cruise Control invoices and about 6 items matched up the penny. As Axios was saying, some stuff may not be there but hey, better than nout and its a lot more accurate than the prices in my 7.0 - that was way off.

    Off topic, managed to sort out my External HD, downloaded a program called KillDisk; have used it before but totally forgot about it. Brayed the **** out of the drive and its finally formatted in NTFS. Nightmare now though, trying to backup data from my gf's Vista OS Laptop and its shooting up a I/O Error -- apparantly a common fault with Vista.. ARGH.

    I've checked them with some bits i've bought and it seems spot on.
    Nice find that man.

    jb0o, I hate hardrives when they start to go.
    Good luck.


    I've been given a new graphics card cause someone thought there was a need to have 2 monitors on our PCs.
    Fine but not i've got 2 PC with 4 monitors each.
    Sod that, I've stripped it down to 3 monitors, 2 PCs and 1 switch unit.
    O yeah one of the monitors is touch screen.

    No need to switch to read my emails.

    September my multi car policy runs out.
    Not looking forward to renewing that one.

    I just hope my saving's work out enough for me to pay in one lump. I hate monthly direct debits.

    Mikey, Yeah mate. can't wait.
    Got my audi to work, my dads patrol and my step dads transit.
    busy weekend and alot of beer. Bring it on.

    Lewis, thats more than I pay on my multicar policy.
    Why is it so high for you?

    No idea about getting past your internet security. I tend not to play about it with it. Not worth my job getting caught.

    Wednesday Morning at 07:14, Its wet out side, cloudy, dank and generaly not a very nice day.
    I went to my office and started my normaly morning routen, when I got to the bit about checking emails I was greated by the project plan of network merger project.
    Great, I thought. I can finaly see what is going on and get some answers with out spending my days living hear say, wispers and speculation.
    The good feeling and the sense that this project is looking suddenly came crashing down, like a fat man jumping out of plane and landing on the full size house of cards I just spent the last 4 weeks lovingly building.
    2 out of the 4 Items of work that was meant to go ahead next week was done last week, which we found out by accident and which also causes a massive security breach on out system, he seems to be renaming one server to do the job of another server thats all ready in its place.
    Shutting down Half of out network during school time, which is bad cause there is lessons and over 120 new recruits joining over the two weeks he planned the system down. Why he did not put it for two weeks early when everyone is on leave I never know.
    He wants to rename two servers which is almost impossible cause doing so will mean having to reinstall this pain in the ass antiquated system on over 30 PCs but even then that might now work and one of the servers is now ours. we just host it.
    One of the servers he want to use as a file server for out remote site but its our only back up server with a tape drive and there is no funding to buy another one.

    Inshort this hole project seems to be getting worse and the project lead is a bit of a knob. We've had so many meetings with him explaining all the issues and pitfalls with his ideas and plans but he never seem to take any of it in.
    I've also heard he wants to rebuild all our PCs to their standard image, Which is fine. I dont have a issue with that. They could do with it.
    But he builds ever PC with the same name, so you have to go round to the pc and change the name of every PC (we have over 500 PCs). we've allready told him we can image the PCs and keep their correct name, so no need to go to every PC.

    GRRRRR Fecking hate some of the people in this company. Its one of them places that if you suck enough **** you can have any job you want, even if youre totaly unqualifyed and have no idea what youre doing (this project lead for example or our call logging supervisor person. I have no idea what she does or why she even have the job, she's only here 2 days a week......O yeah, he husband is some manager or some site some where). I could be an english literature teacher if sucked enough **** (but I wont for several reasons, 1, I'm not sucking ****, 2, My english writing skills is bloody awfull, just in case you have not noticed. :))

    /rant over.
    I'm off to listen to some whale songs.

    I feel your pain and frustration through my screen :banghead:

    Chin up change what you can and flow with what you can't, unless you have an ear higher up the chain that you can warn about the pitfalls in the plan.

    I think sending the mrs is the best way for purchasing goods. I have two bikes, I took my MTB to the shop and asked them to face the BB for me, charged £20. Wife went a few weeks later with the road bike and they charged her £15! Now, i'm not sure what went on in the shop...she mumbled soemthing about jiggling and boobies, but it saved a fiver and an hour of my time by sending the wife. From now on, she does all my bike shop trips!

    Dust under the screen is well annoying on phones! Hope you can get it sorted mate.

    I might have to use the misses Femininity to try and get money off things.


    Talking to HTC now, they are going to look at it cause it might not be covered under warrenty.
    Surly dust under the screen is a warrenty fault?
