Annoying is the word. I can always tell when a 'new' virus or whatever has been produced for Windows as my home email gets hundreds of them every day. Usual traffic is about 10-20 messages on a daily basis, but recently, I've been cleaning out about 2-300 of them.

Nice. I'll have to get down that way next time (!) I'm passing Oz. Unfortunately, my wife's auntie passed away (she lived in Harbord) so it doesn't look like we'll be back in Sydney for the forseeable future :o(

Aye, CDOS etc got too much 'kiddie' for me a while back. I still occasionally pop in and check it out, but you get a better class of posting here and I think I prefer the email version rather than the proper news group style.

Enjoy those curries !
