Thanks for pointing that out, I've raised it as internal problem 40365 for the developers to look into.

Just goes to prove Dave, if its on the shelf it's obsolete.

What was the VAT rate in them day's or was it still purchase tax then?

Will I get a refund for late delivery?

It was still pounds, shillings and pence then wasn't it? So we'd probably be looking at refund of 3/6 or something Smiley

Tom, the word you censored was 'Bitch'. this word does not fall into the context of 'Personal abuse, swearing or racism.' referred to in the link in your moderators note.

Therefore I await your apology.

If we are going back to 1970, my parents were still at school and I wasn't even a twinkle in my fathers eye.

Come on Tom grow up, at my age I have had enough of the PC brigade.

What do you call a female canine?

Clue: The male is called a 'Dog'. Was that offensive or are you being sexist?



Just to educate someone of your tender years:

Quote
Bitch comes from Old English bicce[2] which may be from Old Norse bikkjuna.[1] These uses refer to a female dog, a meaning the modern English word retains. It is not known whether English bitch and French biche (meaning fawn as well as bitch) are related.[2]


I personally find your over zealous 'Nannie' type attitude far more offensive. There are many words I could have used which are really offensive, but I refrained.

I only seldom use this forum due to moderators like yourself who like to attempt re-educating some of us.

Recently I have become disgusted with Plusnets service, but after communicating with one of their staff things were resolved and I was prepared to carry on with them has my ISP. Following your post and censorship I will consider requesting my MAC in the next few weeks to disassociate myself from Plusnet completely, thus preventing any further censorship from moderators like you on this forum.

Ah - classic bug that, somewhere a zero is being used as the double which would usually represent the number of seconds past then.

I know Smiley

I stands back in total amazement at your command of a foreign language!!

If I translate it, would it mean somebody dropped a clanger during programming the software?



P.S To save any offence to the PC brigade a 'Clanger' is the 'Dinger' in a bell. Cheesy

Yep exactly.
Look at my profile and what I do - story of my life Smiley

Not just PlusNet that suffers from them - looking at various clangers in our software at the minute.

Now in theory if someone could go back in time and pickup the router and patent it in the 1970's they would become a millionaire in the presant time.
curses ! If only my Temporal Mechanics was up to scratch.
