I would beg to differ on the latter. Some people are so amusing in their inferiority complexes :p:

As for the former, yes, it can. But not in this case, I'm proud of it!

Camford - yes, or get an actual compsci and not just a computer geek,
Exactly. CompSci Geek Edition is just a cut down version of CompSci Enterprise Edition. In another word it comes riddled with bugs and spyware.

I got this file, ran it, my computer went funny yeah? So I realised there was something wrong yeah? As you do Yeah? What I am doing...

My computer basically went wrong. So... I did something to it and it's fixed. Don't want to describe the detail just in case i bore everyone into tears.
Was that my file by anychance?

no, we talking about a different one. MD5 is whatever it is can't remember, read my post in the techy forum. It's all there, as much as I know about this new variant anyway.

I have only to deal with virus infections twice since I had my own computers... First time it took me a day to figure out what was wrong...

OMG.....I've just realised that The Darkness's "Growing on me" is possibly THE BEST song about an STI!!!!

Just listen to it through properly next time you hear it, and listen to the words....he's talking about a god damn STI!
....."OH SLEEPING IN AN EMPTY BED......I CANT GET YOU OFF MY HEAD!!!........"
No no, it's about some kind of lichen or mould that thrives in the greasy environment of Justin's long flowing hair.

well james bond went to oxford, and so all (good) compscis hate james bond....since all the good compsci's are here (oooo cheap shot i know!)
From Wiki
"The cinematic James Bond is degreed in Oriental Languages from Cambridge University, stated in You Only Live Twice—...
Raymond Benson's Tomorrow Never Dies novelization suggests Bond lied to Moneypenny about his languages degree. In The World is Not Enough, he speaks Russian fluently, claiming studies at Oxford, and he is seen communicating in other languages in the films."

Note that the canon literary Bond joined the Navy at 17 and went straight from there into MI6 (i.e. no degree at all)

Assuming you use a Mozilla/Firefox browser these should work. The first one will open a new window for a search of the Colleges P to W for the text which is highlighted on the page. The second prompts you for a search term and then opens a new window. But it could be altered to search within the current window, or open windows for multiple library searches (possibly), or I suppose it could possibly be modified for IE if needs be.

For multiple library searches, it'd probably easier to rig up a separate webpage where you can select the databases you wish to search, and then have it do them all in resizable frames or something.

Dang, that would have been nice, but I use IE. I can;t get on with firefox for some reason.

I made one that detects ISBN with this: http://weblog.infoworld.com/udell/st...arylookup.html

but title would be better. although its nice that it detects it automatically on the page.

modify it for IE for me and ill give you.. um.. a presen t

I can't get it to work for Notts database either.

Obviously none of the other courses are :rolleyes:
Well obviously YOU think that, or you simply misunderstood me cus nowhere in my post did I say or imply that - VetMed IS hard to get into - I wasn't making comparisons with other courses. You did that.

FireFox is about 1 billion times 1 billion times 1 billion times better than IE.

Was it because you used a \instead of a /?
