Question from Graeme

Sorry, how does that work mate....please tell...?
It's an old trick mate, but it seems to have fallen out of favour and rarely gets a mention now.

When you've loaded the list into your browser, just press the F3 key and a new bar will appear at the top of the window with a text box on the left, as you type into this box, a highlight will appear at every occurance of that character or word, buttons next to the box do what they say, try it now and enjoy

Damn, you guys are hot.

Don't tell me that was on the list. I looked for
MERIDIONALI RO 51

Time for a refresher in the art of paying attention.

Noyade, you're up.

Thanks skwinty. Didn't look at Mel's list with that one.

This is all I have...

It's a bit difficult to use F3 search on hard copy.

I will have to go the electronic route.

Thanks for the tip SincoTC.

Oo err!!

Looks like the new Time stamp Bug is still with us. When I went to post the answer to Graeme's F3 question, skwinty had already judged and Graeme's new challenge was up, hence the reason I gave my post a title.

Yep...does make things hard. Martin's FW-200 response is below the Ro.51 photo before I even posted my challenge....

Yes, I see that RR posted is answer seven minutes before you posted the challenge; where are you Martin, off-world somewhere?

I wondered who got the StarGate I saw on eBay

You can't read your laptop in the bath.

Why not?
And, besides, you can alway buy a smartphone with a decent display (Samsung Galaxy, iPhone, any HTC...) or an iPad...
Their usefulness goes far beyond reading Mel's List while sitting on a toilet!
