Re: Awa

Just had a phone call from Nick and Kathy. They of course had run out of credit on the PAYG mobile and have just been able to buy some credit. They have returned from St Kilda and are anchored in Lochmaddy. They cannot get online as the hotel wifi in Lochmaddy will not accept the wireless key from t...

Your contract is with the retailer. Go through them as you do not have a contract with Samsung.

Heather Mills McCartney & Webcraft

As she has now got her £20 million from Paul McCartney who will she be after next. What about an Internet company director with his own boat that has recently returned from a world cruise and who still has his boyish good looks and a special way with woman. I think Webcraft could be her next targ...

When I said to them that they may be sleeping in their own bed tonight. They said they will be burning the bedding in the boat. Can't think why.

18 Miles from Seil

Just talked to the sailors on their mobile. They left Glenarm at 1:00 am and at 14:50 were 18 miles from Seil. Engine is on and the tide has just turned to help them on their way. Slow progress at the moment as the tide is not in full flood. They hope to be in Balvicar around 7 or 8 tonight. They ar...

Nigel Are they probably making for Carrickfergus due to it being sheltered with the prospect of the forecast gales. Is Carrickfergus a good start point to cross to Scotland or is it a touch to far south. I assume they would want to be 10 miles further up the coast say Larne to reduce the distance on...

Also the first day of the Grouse in Scotland. The Drumtochty syndicate are having their beginning of season lunch tomorrow. As it is a Sunday, they will not shoot until Monday.

So we wonder if the lunch will be outside as usual or will it rain and be in the Wendy house.

In WEP 64 or 40 bit if the code is in hex you need ten characters and if it's in ascii you need 5 characters. See example below In Hex 7733343572 In Ascii w345r So it must be the passphrase you have but the router is expecting Hex. Bit confusing I think. eddie http://www.andrewscompanies.com/tools/w...

Make sure you have caps switched off and make sure that zeros and letter o is correct otherwise an ether net cable can be useful if you can stick it in a socket.

We will change out the card when you getback.
