  1. Thank you. This calendar may be useful too: http://www.rightline.net/calendar/market-holidays.html
  2. You might look at this: http://www.exefind.com/clock-tray-skins-lite-P27282.html
  3. Avast anti-virus is the one I use. If you know someone who thinks of changing their anti-virus and would like a one-in-a-million chance of a trip to Prague, they might be interested in this. http://www.avast.com/eng/100m.html You use only one anti-virus on your PC.
  4. That is good news. Will consider next time I change things.
  5. Avast and Comodo are different animals. Avast is the anti-virus. Comodo is the firewall, and it also has some anti-malware features in its Defense+ function. I use both.

    There are stacks of email programs to choose from. You might look at Thunderbird, which is free. I use The Bat, which you have to buy. It has lots of powerful features that make it easy to use once you have set everything up to suit your needs, The downside is that the manual very poor - the offset is that there is a helpful discussion list where knowledgable volunteers are always willing to answer any queries. Microsoft is not the only game in town for email solutions.

    Remember too that the company suggested the Dec half would less impressive than last year's Dec. half. This would discourage short-term investors.
  10. Management Course Lesson 1: A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you £800 to drop that towel.' After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her £800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?' 'It was Bob the next door neighbor she replies. 'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the £800 he owes me?' Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure. Lesson 2: A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.' Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.' Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity. Lesson 3: A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.' 'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk.. 'I want to be in theBahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.' Puff! She's gone. 'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.' Puff! He's gone. 'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch.' Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say. Lesson 4 An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?' The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.' So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up. Lesson 5 A turkey was chatting with a bull. 'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.' 'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.' The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree. He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree. Moral of the story: Bull S *# t might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.. Lesson 6 A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him. Morals of the story: (1) Not everyone who s *#* s on you is your enemy. (2) Not everyone who gets you out of s *# t is your friend. (3) And when you're in deep s*# t, it's best to keep your mouth shut! THUS ENDS THE FIVE MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE
  11. IE 8 conflicts with SpyBot. You remedy this by changing a setting in SpyBot. From: Team Spybot <software@spybot.info> To: Paul ..

ZoneAlarm might also block the global hosts. If you go to Firewall in ZoneAlarm on the left and then the main tab in the upper right then go down to the advance button and click on it you will see under General setting "Lock Hosts file". Further please try the following: Open Spybot > Immunize > under Windows uncheck Global (Hosts). Go into Spybot > Mode > Advanced Mode > Tools > Hosts file > and then click on the "Add Spybot S&D hosts list" button. Go back into Spybot > Immunize The problem that not all global host entries have been immunized has also been discussed in our forum: http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t...immunize+global http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t...immunize+global http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t...immunize+global -- Best regards, Norma Team Spybot Please give us your feedback: this mail was helpful http://feedback.spybot.info/index.php?h=0M...jIwNzM2MDc1OToy partly helpful http://feedback.spybot.info/index.php?h=0M...jIwNzM2MDc1OTox not helpful http://feedback.spybot.info/index.php?h=0M...jIwNzM2MDc1OTow ---------------------------------------------------------- Spybot-Search & Destroy Home: http://www.spybot.info Spybot-Search & Destroy Forum: http://forums.spybot.info ..........................................................

    On 13th, this appeared on this site: http://www.thebull.com.au/articles_detail.php?id=4623 Trading on a low PE of 3.5X and a yield of 5 percent (fully franked), D’Amato also expects online lottery ticket company, Manaccom Corporation (MNL) (market cap $10 million) to continue out-performing after posting a 35 percent jump in profit to $1 million. “I like the way the defensive earnings from the lottery division diversifies cyclical exposure from its online marketing business," says D'Amato.
