    I think some basic rules of PD should be enforced & then listed before people post stuff like this.

    I suggest that you look at the host file and see if that has been tampered with!

    On another forum where I moderate, your post would have been deleted out-of-hand. It is a forum for theatre technicians, with a lot of "roadies" involved, and the standard of English is far better (and more strictly monitored) than here. Most of the foreign posters write better English than is sometimes seen here!

    Some of the recent coments about poor literacy skills have actually been aimed at people who have varying levels of dyslexia ... this should not be confused with laziness to string coherent comment together.

    In this particular case then yes, it was a poorly strung together request ... but please do not lump all the previous issues together.

    I think a change in my sig might be needed ...

    I usually have 'Sax, the perfect cure for dyslexia', but feel that a change may be needed now ...

    Still, this one is not as bad as his other VNC related question:

    http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...&p=66459#66459

    I think what he really wants is someone to go over to his house / school and do it all for him...

    Just go and add it to Gatt's ToDo list (so he can laugh at you) or ask on a forum for people who care.

    Incidently does google.co.uk or google.de work?

    oh and can we have a "STUDENT" title under his name so that we remember that he isn't an IT Tech, just a school pupil?

    Like me? The difference is that I care about what I write, and if I'm unsure, I check my work.

    Anyway, this is going OT. Maybe we should take some of this over to FFS...

    I dont' think the initial subject should have been under general chat to begin with.
