Kindly explain why you cannot re-open a mine?
Better still, tell that to the cornwall folks who are re-opening the old Tin mines.

Pity you didn't name and shame them and list all their identities = might have shut them upand would have allowed those that were sticking up for decency to know who they were dealing with.

Well, at least one person in the final week said that would happen if the trolls continued abusing the guidelines laid down for posting. They continued and it did get shut down. :) I emailed the webmaster asking what was going on and have, as yet, received no reply. However, If one had bookmarked a ...

Have you tried deleting the bookmark and then downloading the Gmail notifier. A nicer solution to the bookmark and keeps her informed of new mail coming in. http://toolbar.google.com/gmail-helper/notifier_windows.html Oh and if she's installed Windows Live, she can also redirect her Gmail to the Win...

Your Image is way better than what I can see on my PC!
It starts pixellating whilst still seeing a fair portion of the village ( Skopi )
You can see the best I get at;

Although it works, well the zoom icon does ( The others either don't or do something unexpected ) I couldn't make out our house in Skopi - too pixellated to say with any accuracy which is our house.
Still useful as a map to give directions for folks to within 100yds.

Hmmm, This sounds more like a cable fault than a software installation fault. Did your installation instructions tell you to connect up the printer first and then apply the installation software or software first and then connect printer? Doing it the wrong way round will often bring up this problem...

Chatted to Mark (hubby) about said topic and he says average price in CH is 1.10 euro per Liter with diesel average 1.45 per liter. Diesel is more expensive because it's seen as more of a health risk - the emissions have more fine particles which can get into the blood stream easily and cause heart...

Anybody know the the cost at that little garage on the R/H side of the dual carriageway to the Carrefour in Heraklion? Will need to fill the Picasso up as soon as we arrive in Crete - not sure we'll have enough go-juice to reach Ag Nik. Oh for the good old days when I used to travel to and from Germ...
