Frustrating is hardly the correct word, but there is some quite interesting 
stuff to listen to on the site, that is when you can hear it.

The joy of working with computers. Sometimes I'd rather take my dog for a 
walk.

btw. I'm still trying to track down the acpi/complete shutdown problem. At the 
moment, rather than an update problem, that I'd previously thought, I now 
think this is a problem with the 2.6.18 kernel, and older hardware. Anyway 
I'll post back on the other thread if I have any success in discovering what 
the problem is.

All the best.

Nigel.
