Some of my best friends are techies but I think Ive found out the secret to technical support.

"Turn it off and turn it back on again"

Still Im surprised IT staff arent marathon record holders , Id swear the 10 minutes the system will be down are more like an hour....(Still gives them time to finish the coffee/coke/biscuits/forum thread)

You forgot the "speak nicelyto it as computers work better when you talk to them!" and the old favorite of "No of course you aren't being silly, everyone does that!"

Hild,

Can't wait...

Will you publish the original and then the translation. just for revision purposes???

No, that's really a bit sad isn't it???

Alea jacta est - the die is thrown.

Or the dice is thrown if you prefer common english usage, and why not?

More Latin please, I'm starting to feel closer to my own time.

RB, as it's someone else's work, I'll only post the very choicest of quotations. When I get around to reading it!!! Really, it could be months, so don't sit on the edge of your chair for too long...
