kuwese,

You're welcome, thanks for all the hard work!

Just in case people aren't aware what he's talking about, we sent out some cool "Computing.Net swag" (a thumb-drive) to our mods and techs/experts for all the great work they've been doing this year. Just something to show our appreciation!

Thanks to everyone!
Justin

Mine works perfectly too. Computing.Net logo and cool blue light too... :))

It is certainly a treat from folks I admire. Believe all of us would agree CN has done more for us than we've hoped to do for CN.

Thank ya Justin; thank ya Joe.

Derek,

It looks like the airmail we used might be really slow. Hopefully it gets there eventually. If not, Joe will probably have to resend.

Thanks CN. Mine arrived yesterday. Funny thing about postal services. It was postmarked in Melbourne (Australia) on Nov 5th but didn't arrive in my mailbox until 23rd. 18 days to travel from one state capital to another. Too early for the Christmas rush. Things aren't looking good for all the gift senders and internet shoppers next month.
I'm now going to try something I've only read about. Creating a bootable USB drive.

If ijack only received his 2 days ago, also in the UK, then I expect it's just a matter of time.

Otherwise I'll mark a big white X in the garden and keep a look out for lost aircraft LOL.

Let me know if you were on the list and haven't received one yet. They are being shipped by steamboat and horse-drawn carriage, I fear.

Just to say that my flash drive (second attempt) arrived today despite the holiday mail situation. It's great and many thanks for the extra effort. Wonder where the first one got to....

To make this response more useful, for those who don't know already there is a neat trick to stop flash drives being attacked from the wicked autorun.inf virus (passed between computers via flash drives).

You use the command line, switching it to each of your flash drives using its letter, for example J:

These are the commands:

mkdir autorun.inf (this creates an autorun folder)
cd autorun.inf (opens the folder)
mkdir .\con\ (this creates an undeletable folder inside the autorun folder)

This will prevent any autorun files being put on those drives.

The folder "Con" cannot be created in Windows (OK in Command Prompt or Linux).
It can only be deleted from a flash drive using Linux or by formatting the flash drive.

Check it by trying to delete folder autorun.inf (if it deletes you have not got the commands exactly right).

EDIT:
Flash drive even works on my old Win 98 despite being half the size of the HD.
Got driver from "Windows update" in the normal way (which is amazing).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Great to hear, Derek! The one I sent to you and to our home office in France never quite made it, and others (like kuwese) took way too long to arrive. Will be sending FedEx from now on, at least for the international stuff.

Enjoy the drives, guys!
