    We had some unexpected site downtime this morning due to a server error related to a security upgrade. Very sorry for the inconvenience!

    Thank for all the work, Amin. I had been transferring my own domain to a new server, and since my photo links from here point into it I was rather puzzled for a moment or two. All's swell that ends swell, as Shakespeare puts it. Fred Shakespeare at the Daily Mirror, that is...

    Cheers!

    just slightly off topic - but connected

    all I have to say is "bloody" computers

    I've just had a problem with one of mine - a software problem - and my "old grey matter" does not function as it used to - so I'll have to ask my son

    Hey Bill, does the fruity side of life have problems? I thought I have to go "green".
    Thanks to great support of the dutch HJT forum a computer problem was fixed at this side.

    hi herman

    i run a "virtual" windows machine on my Imac for a few legacy windows programs that I still need

    I downloaded some (paid for) software from the internet that I need to submit a partnership tax return - this software ONLY runs on windows and needs an internet connection to complete the online information submission.

    I cannot get IE in the windows "virtual" machine running on my Imac to connect to the internet - therefore I cannot submit the return

    I (generously) gave my (old) windows laptop to my son at Xmas - I am in france and he is in the UK - the software is a "once only" install - if I cannot get it to work on my Imac it means I need to purchase another copy to run on a Windows machine

    complicated, but I should have realised this before I (bought) and downloaded it
