  1. It wouldn't bother me as much as this would- That is, if it were mine after a crossing.
  2. Oh so true. Try drinking Heineken for months and months then try it.
  3. I know exactly the situation with exception to the wind. I avoid windy conditions and probably miss out on some really good days in doing so too. A few years ago I watched someone at a small commercial (Stonebridge nr Northallerton) casting with a small hill at his back. His back cast appeared to go straight up in the air. I still don't know how he was doing it. Maybe it was the type of line? I think my main problem is that I have never had anyone show me how to cast and I probably have a few bad habits. I'm still catching though and don't have near the problems I had initiall
  4. Same here Dave. I have control issues- err with the rod itself which make me feel like I'm throwing like a girl. Doesn't bother me. It's the loss of power while loading the rod that does. I almost always switch back or find another spot where being cack handed isn't a prerequisite. I'll feel better about it when I get really good.
  5. Sounds like a nice day Mark. Enjoyed the pictures!
  6. - and the little tick boxes at the end for offers when you register for information or access to a site.
  7. I hope you were pitching and not catching Cory... Seriously though, you guys are probably correct in that most unwanted bugs are from children and unwarranted clicks for free stuff.
  8. So whatcher sayin is there are multiple meanings for "popup"?
  9. That's good advice Sean, if I can manage to get out tomorrow I may need it. The water was extremely high this afternoon where I want to go...
  10. or something more serious? I know some of you have Evos (Elton) and Subarus... Advice please.. I have a 2001 Volvo V40 T4. It has just gone over 90k. When I give it some stick (wellie-whatever) or drop the clutch so to speak I get a giant shudder (loud pounding) through the car as the front wheels eventually find traction and not much acceleration. It seems to accelerate rather smoothly if I don't get on it. I'm just wondering if I am due for some serious maintenance (struts and engine mounts) or if this is normal and its just the turbo and too much power all at once. I ran ac
  11. I only run symantec internet security 2008 (virus updates once a week with full system scan) and that is behind my routers firewall. IE7 has a popup blocker.. But I don't frequent hacker or porn sites either. Of course I haven't been in any accidents lately in the car.. Oh well. Nevermind. I'm more likely to have my accounts broken into and my identity stolen.. Not that I need any more excitement.. With the world ending in August maybe I should max all my credit cards too...
  12. At "church camp" as an 10 year old I was told the end was going to be April 1987. Lunatic fringe. I like that. What a waste of time..
  13. I must be lucky or something... I never (touch wood) get popups and find anything other than the occasional tracking cookie. So here is my question. What sites are you guys going to and what are you downloading???? Comeon be honest
  14. Hi Fred, I've got XP media center (sp) on my desktop but I have never used it. With so many other options available for viewing I just haven't bothered with it. I only use IE7 popup blocker.
  15. Mini black holes will just fizzle and die? The scientists think the risk is too small to warrant serious thought.. Dark matter

  17. Hi Andrew, I was originally looking at the Trident because I liked the stowage and flat area around the rod pod aka toilet . So I went to have a look at what they had at Robinhoods in Leeds. RHs had a prowler 15 on display and I just couldn't justify getting such a large capacity boat for what I wanted to do with it. Standing next to it while it was stood on end, well the sheer size of it- mindboggles. Anyway I absolutely love my 13 and if I can justify another I would go for the smaller trident. In fact I like it so much that I won't even let anyone else paddle it..
  18. Steve- You are correct. If you are behind a router you should be ok. Most routers you have to turn on the option to respond to a port sweep. If you aren't make sure you turn on windows firewall before turning off the other. You should never be without some sort of protection.
  19. September is what they are saying here You may have to create an account to view.

  21. Zone Alarm is probably being inundated with requests for downloads and other things since it seems loads of people are looking for a 'fix'. I wonder since you can't get to the web.... Are ports 80, and 443 open for web access? This makes sense in my mind.- A firewall by default leaves all ports outgoing open. BUT it closes inbound ports. Sooo.. TCP uses the same port the request went out on to return. By rights your software is working correctly but the FW (ZA) has closed the returning port. I don't have ZA. Since it is freeware does it allow you to open and close ports?
  22. While not a fix Leon, apparently this is what was driving the update but I still think it has something to do with the way your browser sends and receives acknowledgements. Did Peggys fix work?
  23. Sounds like a port firewall problem Leon.
  24. You have to watch those fisherman.... Looks like Bertha has been downgraded- a little....
