Warren,

Many thanks for all your hard work, as frustrating as it may be for you. With a temporary inability to upload pictures, I guess traffic is going to be very quiet for a while, but it can't be helped.

It might not be long I'm waiting for an install date to connect the server to a new provider it probably won't take long as the infrastructure is in place

Keep up the good work Warren and I think a great deal of thanks are due to you. Of course it is all double Dutch to me , I don't u understand a word of it, can get you on my tablet (for blood pressue) and smart phone, but not on laptop or notebook, don't tell me why I would not understand. Just keep juggling all those bytes and things and remember you will be lauded by the BUT members

Thanks Warren. Cannot say I'm very impressed with the Electricity Companies attitude ! Customer service is not what it used to be, it's all about profit now. Eric

I think it was a combination of open reach and the power company two poor entities

Yes, I noticed the change when PO Telephones became privatised and became BT, staff and customer took 2nd place to profit, the main reason I took early retirement. Just tried copper mine, all seems OK. Thanks again. Eric

It is good to see the old place up and running and the 'gang' all here again. :D Thank you Warren for your perseverance, I know it must have been a hair tugging affair. I have just installed Linux on this pc, so I appreciate what computer technology can throw at one.

The 'missing' BHF left a big space on my screen so I installed FSX and got my flight sim piloting skills back ... coming into land at St Maarten ... two reds, two whites ... my approach looks good ! :D

oldMohawk, is that really what the landing strip looks like? Looks like a pilot has to really concentrate to land on that. I read recently that a tourist was killed there when she was blown over as a jet was taking off.
