  1. A bad flipped bit on the boot sector of the HD? Boot from an external drive and use disk tool to wipe and reformat the old drive - or replace with a new un (500GB SSDs are quite cheap nowadays) before installing a fresh OS.
  2. My tupenthworth as a webmaster - there was a mass hotmail and disposable email hack that started in Dec (tested on students then became more widespread soon after in a phishing campaign) and became more readily apparent in early January that I had to issue a warning for folk to check and change their passwords. I think from insecure passwords susceptible to brute force hacking. Possibly if hackers gained access to email accounts they could also glean banking info as a priority?? https://www.necl.co.uk/index.php/news/194-watch-out-for-dodgy-emails-appearing-to-be-from-necl-clubs

    Jered Threatin - He tried to fake his way to fame and got caught red-handed. Or did he? A conversation with a false rock god. Duchamp of the music world??

    You can't install the campaign file into the demo - when you get the full game then plonk em in using the way I outlined above if the full game installer hasn't already been patched.

    "Maybe the problem then is that I don't have the game files for SF2 yet. I purchased it when it was first announced, but received no link where I might DL it. " ?? Have you installed the full game or just the demo? If you've bought the full game and installed it it could be like CM Black Sea - You need to right click or alt-apple the CM game .app file to show the Show Package Contents to bring up the: Contents > Resources > Game Files > Campaigns

  11. Sure it wasn't a very lucky mortar round dropping in an open hatch...
  12. No it's been restored and repainted/touched up in those colours at least a couple of times at the http://www.museedesblindes.fr - It was with the Fench Army post-war and stashed away before going to the museum.. "Tiger II – Musée des Blindés, Saumur (France) – running condition Fahrgestell number 280112. According to an article from the Saumur museum's magazine n° 54, this tank, which now carries the turret number 233, could be the tank n° 123, which belonged to the 1st Company, 101 SS.s.Abt in August 1944. It could have been abandoned by its crew on 23 August 1944, due to some engine problems, at Brueil-en-Vexin (near Mantes-la-Jolie). It has been apparently salvaged by the French Army in September 1944, and then stored at the AMX factory at Satory before being transferred to the museum, when it was created. It was not in running condition for some months due to a gearbox problem, but the tank has been repaired recently and now, it runs normally (France AFVs register) How it was in 2006 (note slightly different green tan pattern in places) http://preservedtanks.com/Profile.aspx?UniqueID=216 This King Tiger is believed to be the only one in the world in running order. It carries the turret number “233” and has taken part in some ‘Carrousel’ dynamic displays. It is coated with Zimmerit anti-magnetic mine paste. It was restored using parts from a number of other vehicles,
  13. JK you just can't help yourself "...academic D r. Michael Salla . He has, I think, created his own niche of study, and he consults with governments, think tanks and corporations on matters which may surprise you." In your argument from authority, you'll likely find he's got a 25 yard swimming certificate and a degree but at the end of the day he's a certifiable woo merchant. "He is listed as course instructor at the Exopolitics Institute, along with journalist Paola Harris and former lawyer Manuel Lamiroy. The institute offers a so-called "Galactic Diplomacy Certificate," among other scamsqualifications. Cost of that course is $1500 plus extras for seminar tuition — a trivial investment, really, when one considers what an asset such a certificate would be if applying for a job in, say, corporate management" https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Michael_Salla ”The central belief of every moron is that he is the victim of a mysterious conspiracy against his common rights and true deserts. He ascribes all his failure to get on in the world, all of his congenital incapacity and damfoolishness, to the machinations of werewolves assembled in Wall Street, or some other such den of infamy. (Add Battlefront.com forum mods to the list!) —H.L. Mencken
  14. JK the last major kooky thread instigated by you culminated over 5 years ago! - you weren't 'savagely attacked' but lampooned for your ludicrous claims you posted on a public forum. There are no cries from you in that thread for anyone to stop - instead when no one believed you or took you seriously, you posted yet more silly claims with various woo links before it seems you withdrew in a huff/out of sheer embarrassment/moderators orders. Some time after that forum moderators suggested by your own admission, that you best limit your posts to less controversial and more verifiable type posts so you wouldn't get upset at the rejection of your bizarre ideas. As you've generally abided by this it shows you're well on the road to recovery and can self-differentiate what's real and what's not before posting - well done! no doubt because you are now getting professional medical treatment for whatever ails you, but occasionally you still need a nudge to keep things on track - as it was when your posting exhibited incontinence in the CM forums and become annoying and you were simply directed to the correct place.
