      stupid e-mail.
      windows wanted for the second time that i sign in.
      the first time they needed another adres for sending the code,which i had to use to sign in,
      and that to another adres than mine.
      it was just for safety reasons.
      this weekend they wanted again a that i sign in,which i did.
      wrong password??????????????????
      what ever i tryed i just come in.
      did i by excident type a wrong latter?
      unpossable,you have to type it twice.
      after a lot of quistions filled in with Wesley adres to sent it,it stil didn't arrive.
      they want that i gave them some email adresses where i send mails to.
      sure,but pity that those adresses are in the e-mail acount,which i can get in.idiots
      so take some from Wesley acount from some family.
      today a new try,lets wait for that.
      they said 24 hours.

        Whatever is happening with it? I was assuming that it had been sorted and was waiting for you to tell me. If you still have trouble I'll PM mine, or give me a ring and I'll tell you.
        I'm with BT and I use Windows Mail as my email client to fetch mail. But that is forever insisting that I give my address and password, yet still won't let me in. That's been going on for over a year. But I just go online to the BT site, email section, where I can pick up my mail without problem. The strange thing is, that after Windows Mail won't let me in, if I leave it open and go to the BT site, then return to WinMail, it fetches immediately. And all the time, if I leave WinMail open but am busy doing something else it does its automatic 10 minute check for mail easily.

          YES I know, so many great threads on CVF ...new photos from around Kristiansund and history from Singapore and maps and pics from East Anglia/Netherlands and that absolute classic Gann report (oops that nearly got spelling-corrected to gannet! ) ...and YES I know there are cruise ships at Queensferry and Rosyth ...and those festival thingies going on all around me ...BUT right now I'm watching TV. Complete with TV lunch at the sofa with a poke of frites with mayonnaise followed by toasted Belgian waffles ....it's lights out and they're off at SPA.

          Oh my! …it was an action packed edge-of-seat kind of race (despite no RAIN!!!!!) …and HIGHLY controversial!

                Just a thought. We used to have a bit of fun with a monthly photo competition.

                Should we resurrect that?

                I can make it happen - but only if enough of us would get some enjoyment out of it and participate in it.
                Cheers,

                Mark.

                  Even though the word "competition" is not part of my usual vocabulary, I'd say why not.

                  I was one of the regular voters, but not so regular posters, because i am a lousy photographer. I appreciate this idea.

                  Yes, it would be a great idea, but we need quite a few people to be willing to join in. Even though there would be plenty of expert photographers posting, it's still fun trying to express whatever subject may be set. If even I can stick my neck out and post then so must you, Ralf.

                I won't start a "contest" but I will start a thread for "missed the perfect photo" thread since I have a good one.

                  You mean a blank sky just after the whatever-it-was had flown away? Oh, I can supply plenty of those, I'm the expert! Never mind, Dane, don't give up!

                    Could always mix the two - a competition for the best - oops, missed - photo!!

                      If it wasn't because I missed this one it would have been a sure winner???
                      I don't think the judges would buy that one.
                      I'm a non-photographer, but I would try my luck every month to see if some sucker would vote for my entry.

                      I was never very good at going out to take a photo for the current month’s topic as Captain probably intended! - but it was fun to dig out something vaguely appropriate from my 'photofiles'.

                      I'm with Seagull on that one, think it's a good idea.

                    Hmmm - might be worth a go then. Sounds like there are four or five us of that would see if they had something that fitted.

                    I'll go and scratch my head and work out how to do 'voting'.

                      Yea, I was sorta aiming for a no pressure "almost" thread. Pictures that were merely OK or interesting but not the best. Of course now that I started the thread I notice that I did the title incorrectly.

                      No, I wasn't hoping for pictures of blank sky but maybe blank sky with just the tail of some rare bird flying away and an interesting story.
