Hi n...
he he....its against ACS (Aust. Computer Society Rules) as well....:)
besides, I have really hated it when some yodel cracks our website then
calls to tell me they know how to fix it....for a price...
As I said though, the media in Melbourne especially, love this sorta story,

aquired monopoly) from our own version of Ralph Nader....good ole Alan(I
hate petrol companies) Fels :-)....there are many ways...some have more
class than others *grin*
