    I briefly considered starting a "Images Not Taken With A 1UI00JFX ONLY " thread, but thought it would most likely get nothing posted in it ...

    Warning of the first kind

    I was told by trusted contacts that someone has taken the virus from Stonehenge area to Bordeaux area in France.
    Code name for this person is NLLIB.
    If you know him or her please contact 007.
    Thanks for your cooperation to keep this forum clean.

    I thought maybe that I would (unfortunately), be infected at Gatwick airport as there were some funny people in the lounge, but walking around I could not feel it so the airport firewall must be working - the police "sniffer" dogs were however going mad so at some point, (soon), I reckon it wont be long before it is spread through the "tax free shops"

    No, no...fear not. Everyone is not infected and they say that once the person gets over their initial love flush, that they settle down and get back to normal.:wink:

    Congrats on finishing exams! I'm afraid I don't recall knowing what you're studying, Martin.

    Very effective. When administered with 2 kids, one of them being in university, it's very likely to work.

    Most effective in the absence of credit cards and low interest rates.

    Bless you - I didn't say
    I was studying for 3 CCIE's (Cisco exams) 3 written and 3 full days practical.
    Passed the 3 written, and 1 practical, failed 2 practical, in fairness after failing the 2nd practical I worked myself up into such a tizzy there was no hope of getting the third, I was far too nervous and failed before I even started :mad:
    More annoyed as the practical exams cost thousands and it will take a long while to save up again - means I cant get a X100 though :wink:

    Cisco as in computer related Cisco? I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not that computer savvy, except with my own little limited world. I am so sorry, Martin - that's terrible about the two, but you did do well on the three written. Those are very expensive exams! Wow.

    Well, don't worry about this virus. In time, the virus will be less virulent and the prices will come down. That's a silver lining, right?

    Apparently the following "inhibitor" works fine to solve the problem
