Hey Bob,
             That's a great !!! idea ... I wish !!!! I knew how to do it.

Emily, who wrote the program "disappeared" into the "Second Life" virtual world over a year ago and has not been heard of since!.

She used to send me a cookie every December to reactivate the annual editing privilages I had from my computer.

I have a copy of the cookie but have no idea ! where it should go to activate the program again. Last December I just messed around with it and somehow managed to get it into the right place by a fluke! ... sheer luck ... this December, after messing about all day I can't find out where it should go.

Needless to say, I am most definately *NOT* an IT guru.

I'll bat this mail to both reflectors Bob just in case somebody recognises the problem and can advise me how to correct it.

I think this web site is invalueable I use it all the time.  The only change I would recomend is, if there is a comment for a particular contact it would help it the little eye glass would change color or somthing to indicate that there is infact a message there.  Yes I totally agree it is not a contest log but to be honest it is fun to see who is where.
