Anyway, a slight change of subject [HeHe] and it's aimed at any budding writers out there [including Helen, of course]. How would you like to enter a horror, ScFi, or poetry writing competition with the winner receiving a $50 gift voucher to spend at www.amazon.com? Interested? Then surf to www.darklines.com for further information. Based in the USA, they're a great bunch of guys. The competition closes on December 17th and the winner of the competition will be announced on Christmas Eve. Good luck! Dave.

Although I think Blair is such a liar that if Pinnochio lied as much as he did, his nose would go to Edniburgh to London, gone 3 times around the M25, goen up the M6 and only stop growing due to the traffic rush at the Spaghetti Junction.

email@example.com Comments: Limar, this isn't exactly the place but to get IIS to work you'll also need to enable Active Server Pages (ASP) as well as FPSE. Your best bet is to visit the MS Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com, select "Search our Tech Database" and then at the new page select Visual Studio.Net as your product and type "IIS FPSE" in the search engine (without the quotes). All will be revealed. Though perhaps you'll find further info within the pages of A GIFT TO DIE FOR... :-)

I don't understand how 'Internet Information Services (IIS) and FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE) should be installed and configured along with the latest security updates'. I have Windows XP professional (portuguese Brazil language), and I don't know how install visual studio .net... Could you help me?
I read your site, and think you know it...

I can't understand how I've never got round to reading any of them before. Definitely an oversight, but one I hope to rectify real soon. Dave. xxx

email@example.com Comments: Helen, I love it when politicians are called hypocrites. In the House of Commons a politician can call another politician practically anything he likes as long as he doesn't use the word "hypocrite" - the reason being that it's a charge 99 percent of them cannot truthfully deny. Anyway, enough of the serious stuff. Life's far too short. So here's a joke concerning Tony Blair:
A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks in front of him. He asked, "What are all those clocks?"
St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone whoever lived on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move."
The man noticed a clock stuck on 12 o'clock. "Oh," said the man, "whose clock is that?"
"That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."
He noticed another one at 2 minutes past 12. "Incredible," said the man. "And whose clock is that one?"
St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life."
"Where's Tony Blair's clock?" asked the man.
"Blair's clock is in Gods' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."
Good one, eh? :-) Dave. xxx

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Yep, Blair is such a hypocrite but then again I wouldnít want to see the Tories back in power. I donít trust them!
Dave, I hope youre enjoying NIGHT WARRIORS. I love that series. It rules!! And I cant wait for the fourth book!
I love Manchester too. After uni, I want to go back up there near the family. We're a bit close knit. Even my sister and her husband live 30 minutes from here, in Farnworth. Manchester is a great place to shop and have a good time and you can live outside the city and still be close to it (thanks to the Metrolink!) When it comes to the M60, just remember itís a big circle outside the city!

email@example.com Comments: Helen, yes the M62/M60 takes some getting used to. Mind you, Iím the sort of person who can get lost in my home city of Newcastle and without any difficulty at all. As for areas in Manchester such as the Trafford Centre and Salford Quays, well, theyíre places very close to our hearts. Weíve stayed at the Copthorne Hotel, seen Victoria perform at The Lowry, wandered through the Lowry Designer Outlet, and generally enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Yup, Manchester is a great place!
Tammy, I hope you win the lottery. It'll help you to buy all those great books. lol.
Jamie, enjoy your book! Iím up to Chapter 3 of Graham Mastertonís NIGHT WARRIORS and loving it! Dave.
208 Wed November 19 2003 - 20:01:38 Fullname: Jamie Email: Comments: Helen, Dave, totally agree with you about Blair and Bush. I don't really know that much about Bush but I know enough about Blair to know he's a hypocrite. He likes to prattle on about freedom and all that and yet he won't even allow us to vote on whether we should be in the european union Anyway, nuff of that, my next read is going to be midnight's lair by Richard Laymon. And Tammy, it sounds like santa is gonna have a bad back at xmas what with all the books he'll be carrying. lol. Happy reading everyone! Jamie

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi Helen
I liked GM's MIRROR very much. I have loved all of his books that I have read thus far. The other author I suggested is Gregory Maguire. He writes a wonderful modern fairy tale. His latest, MIRROR, MIRROR is a modern Snow White Tale. He has also written, WICKED: THE LIFE & TIMES OF THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST (Oz), CONFESSIONS OF AN UGLY STEPSISTER (Cinderella), LOST: A NOVEL (Scrooge) as well as many children's books. I found the books above quite entertaining & have been anxiously awaiting his latest release. Of course, it comes out when I am quite poor :-( Good news is that Christmas is coming...must write that letter to Santa!! Have a great day!

email@example.com Comments: I know exactly what you mean when being in the wrong place, Dave. In New Year 2002, my boyfriend and I went off to the Trafford Centre and my dad told us to take the M62. Of course that was wrong because we nearly ended up in Yorkshire! We had to turn around and get on the M60 and we got lost. It took us two hours to get there and about 20 minutes to get home!! I cant wait to get back up to Manchester and who knows, maybe we'll bump into each otherÖ..
Tammy, if youre referring to MIRROR by Graham Masterton, then you'll enjoy it. Itís a great read.
The news of Bush's visit is the main topic on BBC News 24. I have to back Dave up when I say that its Bush we donít like, not the USA. I donít particularly like Tony Blair. Theres a million things wrong with them but I wont broadcast them in case there are any Bush or Blair lovers in the room.
