  1. My office is on the Maylands estate which is literally just down the road from the fire. I keep seeing it in the TV shots when they show the immediate area! Needless to say, I have not been in to work today and am not going in tomorrow! No idea yet how much damage done to the building but a friend of mine who works a few hundred yards further away from the fire said that her building had no windows intact, so goodness knows what has happened to my place being that much closer. I just keeping thinking how lucky it was to have happened at 6am on a Sunday morning and not 9am on Monday morning when the whole area would be completely full of people in the offices round there. In the meantime, I am enjoying some enforced time off with my lovely family - so not all bad news!
  2. I'll have a look at both of those. Thanks very much for the links. :beer:
  3. First off, I have to say how glad and relieved I am that Discovery and her crew made it back down safely. Second, I think it is part of our make up as human beings to want to see whats over the next hill, across the sea, beyond our atmosphere etc. Imagine how different America, or Australia would be today, for example, if astronaut equivalents of old had not set sail or not taken their wagon trains across the prairies. Space travel is an inevitable step in this process of discovery. However, I wish there was more emphasis on discovery and exploration. The missions to Mars, for example, are far more exciting than the Space Shuttle, which was designed to be and is, simply a big cargo truck in space. Also, there is a cost consideration. With a lot of focus on world poverty in recent times, the vast amount of money that space travel costs is pretty staggering. NASA's budget for next year is over 16,000 million dollars!!! Think how many hungry mouths could be fed with that kind of money! I know this is a very simple way of looking at things, but it just puts things into perspective.
  4. My ISP is offering a speed upgrade but on the condition of accepting a monthly usage cap of 3gb. While I want the speed, I don't really want a cap if my current usage is anywhere near the level. What I want to do is monitor my current usage over as period of a few week and see how much I actually use. From that, I can decide whether I want to upgrade. Any ideas of how I can go about this? Thanks!
  5. If your 4 queries work OK then it is relatively simple to set up either a macro, or some VB code attached to a form with a button to click to run the entire process. This is not as daunting as it sounds! The dates issue is another one quite easily sorted. You could do it in Excel with a macro, but it is better/easier to do in Access. Probably the simplest way is to import the spreadsheet as is, then use a query to convert the text date information into a real date using the CDate function. You then have the correct date to base your other calculations on. The question I have is, is the spreadsheet name/location going to change or will it be the same every time? If it will be the same, then even better, because your macro or VB code can also be made to automatically import the spreadsheet. Even if not, there are ways around this. There are some issues about the format of the spreadsheet itself which certainly does not lend itself to being easily imported into Access. Could you describe the process you went through to import?
  6. Hi You will do best to post this in the dedicated Hijack This forum (a sub forum of the virus/spyware one) where the specialist HJT guys hang out. You'll get the best advice there.
  7. Hi Just reversing back to the error message and possible reolutions. Does she have a firewall? If so, have messenger and her e-mail program been allowed internet access?
  8. Presumably your first PC has XP on it, installed from the XP disc you are looking to use on your 2nd PC? In this case, the answer is no, you can't. The licence you have from Microsoft will allow you to install XP on one machine. Presuambly the whole thing falls down when you try to activate the product? You need to go out and buy another XP disc for your 2nd computer, or contact Microsoft about a multi machine licence.
  9. When you say you have lost your bookmarks, have you lost the menu option, or the toolbar or sidebar, or are these things OK but the bookmarks themselves gone?
  10. I enjoyed that one actually. Weaveworld was another fave of mine by Clive Barker. I'm currently re-reading the Thomas Covenant books by Steven Donaldson. First read them about 20 years ago and got the first book in the new series for christmas, but I couldn't start it without re-reading the original series first! 2 and a half books down, 3 and a half to go. All that before the new Harry Potter hopefully!
  11. Have a look at some of the threads that the search link brings up. If you have a look at the second one (the one after this thread) there is a link to an XP_fix.exe. Follow the link and download and run the file. Should sort you out.
  12. No worrys. First off, can you take a pit test and post the results back in this thread. Click on the link in my signature text for instructions how to do that. Your test will show us some info about your PC and may uncover some potential reasons for your problem. To ID your sound system open the control panel and click on Sounds and Audio Devices (I'm assuming you're on XP) , click on the audio tab and tell us what is under the default device for sound playback.
  13. Try running the virus scan in safe mode. Probably can't delete the trojan file as it is running. Booting in safe mode should stop all but the basics loading at startup, so the virus scan should sort it out.
  14. what sound card do you have in your pc, or is it onboard sound? Have you checked you soundcard control software for any audio effects or graphic equaliser type controls?
  15. I'm pretty sure this is OK. The Pentium 4s run on a quad FSB don't they? So clock speed of 200 times 4 = 800. All is good. EDIT: Here's some info http://www.gen-x-pc.com/pent800fsbinfo.htm
