Would have been disappointed if you didn't. Just today a colleague of mine sent me a joke about aging. It would have been a completely normal situation if she weren't 10 yrs younger than I am -but thought that I was about her age-. Nice to know though that people think I look younger.

Where is that WT & Coke? Do we have to stomp off all the way to the Idiots bar? :evil:

I am just a computer techo, that and F1 is pretty much all I get seriously into. I think I have some experience raising kids too but that is the toughest thing one will ever do, oh and learning from the mistakes of being involved :oops: :oops:
Apart from that I am pretty much hopeless :shock: :shock:

Lately I have even been called an out and out idiot and an extreme one too :D :D

Indeed, you did join in the first year of competition going public. It was of course called 6 'n' Pole then!

Perhaps all the regulars here could tell us when they joined. And do they still keep their results :D
That's right it was and I had forgotten that. :ROTFLMAO: I did have my results but one computer died and I lost the first lot, then my hard drive on this computer died and I had to have it replaced, so I lost all my info.
Always backup onto CD, DVD, Memory stick, whatever. It is hard to get into the habit but once a week even does most of the job.

Losing computer data these days is just unimaginable. BTW also backup your phone contacts onto computer if you don't do it already. Mobile phones can easily break and all your contacts are gone in a flash!

Good advice. I back up music straight away but left the photos. Emails probably don't really matter.

Yeah with digital cameras one can easily lose photos and they are just priceless.
I keep 2 copies of our photos (mainly the kids!!) on DVD, one stays at home and the other at a friends place. I know may sound paranoid but that is how one is supposed to keep the backup of their important stuff!!

Beware of the DVD rot. I know it sounds silly but trust me, it's no joke.

It is brilliant for sure and we were meant to do some slight modifications to cmlean's calculator before posting. We didn't get the time though :oops:
However, in the medium term we need to offer an internet based calculator that doesn't rely on Excel to operate.
Our aim is to develop one during the off season (unless cmlean beats us to it :D ).
You wanted to do it in JavaScript.

I'll think I'll pull a Sergant Shultz. I know nussingk...........!

Perhaps we could have both available. Some people will prefer Java and others excel. :D :D :D :D :D
