Keith? Keith? What's a Keith?

Keith? Keith? What's a Keith? Is this a Turing Test? Danger.....Will Robinson.....Warning :-)

Whispering with BBCode, are we? :-)

Errr ... hi ya Prof! The power consumption doesn't worry me. At the altitiude we live at, I figure we're getting entertainment value out of our heaters, and it keeps my kids warm at night. :-)

Just install a sluice drain....

Seriously now ( chuckle ), I've got BOINCView running at home and boy does that just rock! This superb add-on will bridge any needs there. I can manage preference swapping manually through that, and I'll teach Igor to do it on the weekends. My daughter's and the two work ones have reported in and earned credit ( I'm not really competing with anyone, except perhaps myself, or showing off - basically it's simply a measure of progress in the task ).

LOL!! I just got that! I'm slow on Sunday mornings. :-)

I'm glad you like it. I find it indispensible.

Don't be too hard on yourself :). It took me a while to cotton on to the Police taking statements - and when I did I thought, "Gawd help us, here's another Keith!! :). Keith and the whole TFFE thing is an acquired taste and you really need to know a bit of the history to appreciate it all. I was interested to see how you would react to a bit of inside knowledge being thrown at you from left field. I think you passed the test pretty well ... :).

Cheers,
Gary.

No, I really don't think I'm a Keith, but maybe I could become one if I stop my medication....... :-)

He seems harmless enough, but evidently opinions differ. :-)

Note: They have kissing yellow circles ( and worse ) at Cafe Einstein! That place reminds me of D&C ( Donuts and Coffee ) meetings I attended when I was a hospital intern. They were originally meant to be 'Death and Complications' but we all found that way too accurate..... :-)

For general interest, I

For general interest, I report I have finally answered my own question earlier in this thread regarding good networking information. It is long and detailed but well written and I recommend it for any level of understanding. You can find it here as html, or download in pdf from here. The whole site seems great.
