Help! / wireless network help needed!
« on: 24 November, 2008, 01:42:06 PM »
Hello everyone,

This is by way of being a plea for advice, as my PC has gone belly up and there seems to be a reasonable degree of computer-savvyness on this board!

Basically, I've lost my wireless network connection.  I recently installed Norton 360 on my machine, and, within a day or so, my wireless network connection had gone. Simply disappeared. Bizarrely, the various networks run by neighbours etc were still showing on the list of available networks, but the network I use (my flatmates AOL one) simply didn't show up anymore.

Assuming that this had something to do with the Norton firewall, I disabled that, to no effect.  So I then fiddled with the Norton settings a bit (very technical, that last bit) and the network came back.  Great, I thought.  Unfortunately, once the machine had been restarted the network was gone again. So I replicated what I did last time, but no joy...

Anyway, I used my flatmates machine to scour the web for insight, and basically saw that many other Vista users had had a similar problem.  So, I stripped Norton off the machine, and the network immediately reappeared!

Confident that this was sorted, I switched the machine off.  Upon restarting, though, the network is once again nowhere to be seen.  As a bizarre side effect, I can no longer run itunes, as Quicktime seems to have disappeared from my machine too!

So, here is my plea:
1) can anyone tell me what the bloody hell is going on?
2) can anyone tell me how to fix it?

Hope no-one minds a long-time lurker and only occasional poster popping up asking for help, but I really am stuck.  Help me 2000ad messageboard, you're my only hope!

My copy of The Third Element has just landed (didn't think it was due till next month??), and very lovely it is too.

The spine calls it 'The Thrid Element' though... :?

Classifieds / eBay selling: THIRD WORLD WAR

For anyone who's interested, I'm selling the full set of the US reprints of Third World War, originally from Crisis.

For those that don't remember this, it's by Pat Mills and Carlos Ezquerra.  It's one of Pat's more 'right on' stories, which isn't to everyone's taste, but Carlos' art is just goooooorgeous.

News / New GNs listed on Amazon
« on: 22 February, 2008, 02:38:14 PM »
Hi all,

Amazon has thrown up the following new GNs from Rebellion:

Stickleback (Aug)
Slaine The Horned God (Aug)
Dredd Case Files 11 (Sep)
ABC Warriors: Third Element (Sep)
Ace Trucking Vol 1 (Nov)
Strontium Dog: Kreeler Conspiracy (Nov)
Judge Dredd: The Pit (Nov)
The VCs (Nov)
Complete Ro-Busters (Nov)
Best of Tharg's Future Shocks (Nov)

As you'd expect from Amazon, some of the details are a bit off - they think Case Files 11 is going to be a hardback, and I don't reckon we're getting *quite* that many books in November (!) but still looks a very good (if expensive) second half of the year.  Personally I'd have waited a bit before starting the new SD stories, but hey, you can't have everything (or Robo-Hunter book 4, it seems...)

News / Cheap GNs

Hello all,

I've been lurking around here for a while, but didn't have much to say.

Anyway, now I do: For those who haven't noticed, Amazon have got future Rebellion GNs on pre-order at ridiculous prices right now - Fiends of the Eastern Front at ?3.99, for example.  

Maybe it's a mistake or maybe it's just a big sale - who knows, but I've just gone and ordered loads.

Public service announcement now over...
