    Hi Ed,

    Excuse me, but I have no idea where that message dated 09-19-17, that
    went out from my system yesterday, came from.

    According to the text, my son changed to summer wheels on my car "today"

    In fact this happened on April 12th 2017.

    Is this what's called fake news??

    Maybe not, Holger. A similar thing occurred with this note of yours. It was received here last night...

    Hi Ed,

    Excuse me, but I have no idea where that message dated 09-19-17, that
    went out from my system yesterday, came from.

    According to the text, my son changed to summer wheels on my car
    "today"

    In fact this happened on April 12th 2017.

    Is this what's called fake news??

    I have no idea.

    Your message Dated 09-28-17 came in a .QWK packet I grabbed from the
    BBS on 10-17-17 at 3:04 PM EDT.

    That is a long time for a message to wander through Fido's Network
    before getting to where I could see it.

    I saw Your message just after I grabbed the .QWK packet but got
    confused about the Date it was sent and about the Date that You saw
    and wrote about.

    In the mean time, while I was trying to think of how to write my Reply
    to You, I noticed Mike Powell (This BBS's SysOp) and Paul Quinn have
    already commented about Your message.

    Here is what I found:

    On 4-15-17, at 20:36 hours You wrote a Reply to a message that I wrote
    with the Subject: New HDD for XP pc.

    I (finally) found it by using MultiMail's Search Option and doing a
    Full Text search for the Phrase - summer wheels.

    I know that MultiMail includes a Color File that You Created, so You
    probably have used MM's Search Option to Hunt for something, somewhere,
    that You remember seeing in a message but can't remember which Packet
    it came in.

    In case You haven't used the Search Option, let me bore You a bit and
    write what I learned. (maybe someone else didn't know about this???).

    MM's Search will look through all of the .QWK files shown in MM DOS's
    Opening Screen.
    (MM's WIN version should probably have this Search Option too.)

    Pressing the Slant Sign Key - [ / ] - starts the Option.

    Next several types of Searches are offered, I selected - Full Text .

    Then I Entered what I was Searching for, and pressed the Enter Key to
    start the Search.

    MultiMail looks through all of the .QWK files that are in the List.

    It (MM) Stops looking and shows the first results of the Search when it
    finds the Text I entered.

    To continue Searching to see if any other Results show up, just press
    the Period Key - [ . ] and the Search will continue to the last File
    in MM's List.

    It was just recently that I tried out MM's Search feature, and it blew
    my mind when I saw how Quickly it looked through all of the .QWK Packet
    files in the List.

    Excuse the mess above! My QWK editor is set to 73 chrs/line.
    Your original text showed everything nice in proper columns.

    Here is the ^PATH: 20/228 201/111 0 203/0 280/464 712/848 640/384
    1384.

    Working backwards: the last two are mine; then, my Z3C in Sydney; a
    very nice feller in The Netherlands; and then, Bj├╢rn in Sweden,
    etc. Hope it helps.

    No it doesn't :o(
    In the original case a message posted in march, comes back in september!

    That PATH is of course OK, but where has that message of mine been
    stored six months and then released again six months later ??


    Have a nice evening,

    this message was a copy that had been stored somewhere, came through
    again. Maybe not.

    I saw Your message just after I grabbed the .QWK packet but got
    confused about the Date it was sent and about the Date that You saw

    Here is what I found:

    I (finally) found it by using MultiMail's Search Option and doing a

    Even if my MR/2 QWK-reader has a search function, I wouldn't have found
    that message since I don't store messages that long.

    I know that MultiMail includes a Color File that You Created, so You probably have used MM's Search Option to Hunt for something,
    somewhere, that You remember seeing in a message but can't remember
    which Packet it came in.

    I don't use MM even though I do have the OS/2 version of it.

    In case You haven't used the Search Option, let me bore You a bit

    MM's Search will look through all of the .QWK files shown in MM
    DOS's Opening Screen.
    (MM's WIN version should probably have this Search Option too.)

    All versions of MM do have the same functionality.

    MultiMail looks through all of the .QWK files that are in the List.

    I don't save the old QWK-files. They get overwritten with the next one.

    It (MM) Stops looking and shows the first results of the Search when
    it finds the Text I entered.

    It was just recently that I tried out MM's Search feature, and it

    Good afternoon Paul,

    First: I saw this morning on the TV that you have quite nice weather, at
    least temperature-wise, although you could do without the thunderstorm.

    It ain't no pain. What I want to save, I save, the rest disappears.

    Well, this was a single case so far.

    Next time I know not to get hooked by some odd dates or such <BG>.

    ... "Crunch!, snap!, crackle!, pop!" goes the infantry.

    Yeah I know, been there.

    Last: The weather here is midday/afternoon temperatures in the single
    digit range (4-8°C), and sometimes, as today, roofs and cars are white
    due to frost in the morning.

    On sunday I got the studded wheels on the car aided by my son. My hip is
    not fully recovered yet but still improving, although a surgeon told me
    in august, not to expect any more improvement. I'm deluding him <BG>.

    Yes, we've returned to normal average November temperatures. Just over the last 7-10 days. It's nice, and is another favourite time of year for me.

    On sunday I got the studded wheels on the car aided by my son. My hip is not fully recovered yet but still improving, although a surgeon told me
    in august, not to expect any more improvement. I'm deluding him <BG>.

    :) Good man.

    . Wise? Old? Me? Since when?

    Questions, questions. Fortunately, the answers are not required. You have proven that by having asked them.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Good evening Paul,

    Yes, we've returned to normal average November temperatures. Just
    over the last 7-10 days. It's nice, and is another favourite time
    of year for me.

    Maybe I could get used to them too, although anything above 25C feels
    too hot.

    Just in passing and for no malicious forethought, I can offer you
    this website link to our weather bureau's readings for
    Maryborough...

    Thanks, jotted down.

    new auto-defrosting frige freezer.

    Yeah, we get it every winter, sometimes before XMAS, sometimes after and sometimes hardly an amount to ski on.

    not fully recovered yet but still improving, although a surgeon told me
    in august, not to expect any more improvement. I'm deluding him <BG>.

    :) Good man.

    My recipe is to keep moving as much as my body can take.


    Have a good night,

    That could be troublesome. They do inhabit oposite ends of the Earth, don't they?

    In any case, under all the feathers & fat they are pretty scrawny. They are birds afterall. Lightweight & muscular, built for *burst* flying even underwater. Seals are a better payoff for the effort. Mmm... I'd better shutup now.

    Have a good one...

    Cheers,

    Ah, yes. It might look a bit daunting but, really only the top table and its top-most line are of any great use. It's the up-to-the-minute readings from the bureau's weather station. The rest of the data covers at least the prior 24 hours, maybe 48 hours.

    In short: just the top line of data on the top table is the very latest available sensor readings.

    The URL is now bookmarked so it's easy to jump in.

    I do it often from my mobile phone. (It uses my own LAN<-->wifi trasmitter.) Maybe 6-8 times during the day. That and the 'live' rain radar, if there are storms in the vacinity. :)

    09:59 is still morning, isn't it? <BG>

    So, good morning Paul,

    This one took a while getting here, mate. All the extra Santa mail
    must be clogging the usual dog-sled routes. ;-)

    To be correct: the rein-deer routes ;o)

    Nice. That's what I'm at too. Testing the limits of life's
    endurance, one day at a time. :)

    Yes, keep moving, 'cause if you stop you won't be able to start again.
    That will be near the end of the road.

    We have lately had the "other day" weather. That means the today it will
    not rain. Yesterday it did and tomorrow it will rain again.

    I'm happy that I have a keep-fit bike indoors. Even days when I have had
    a long 'scandinavian pole' walk, I use it once in the evening.

    Rainy days I pedal on it three times a day, just to keep the joints and
    muscles fit.

    .. Polar Bears don't hunt Penguins. Why? Too far to swim.

    That could be troublesome. They do inhabit oposite ends of the
    Earth, don't they?

    No, I don't think there are any polar bears around the antarctic.
    Too far to swim.

    They are birds afterall. Lightweight & muscular, built for *burst*
    flying even underwater.

    Yes, they are beautiful but we don't have them here around the arctic
    circle.

    Seals are a better payoff for the effort.

    They are really not liked here. They tend to eat all the salmon and
    other fish from the fishermens nets, and also free swimming fish.


    Have a nice day,

    Holger

    Yes, the time stamp on your message caused me to greet you at that time.

    Ah, yes. It might look a bit daunting but, really only the top
    table and its top-most line are of any great use. It's the up-to-the-minute readings from the bureau's weather station.

    I did read the top table and found that to be of most interest.

    The rest of the data covers at least the prior 24 hours, maybe
    48 hours.

    Yes I noted that the lower table wasn't of very much interest.

    Mine is an old Nokia E71, mate. The battery constantly fails if I try to take voice calls. All the while it will run any SMS texting, minor web trawling (usually Google or weather searches), checking out pictures or the odd small MP3 sound file downloaded via USB, and, just needs recharging at the end of the
    day.

    But I have to stop using it because all my complaining caused my eldest daughter to buy me a new Android replacement. I keep putting off 'activating' the new one because I like the Nokia so much. Sob, sob... ;-)

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Mine is a 5110 bought i dec. 1998. I've got two batteries of which one
    is always charged. OTOH I have to charge a battery only once/week.

    Congratulations for the replacement. I had also ceased to use Windows
    since XPpro but after a Christmas gift from my eldest GS of a laptop
    with Windows 10, I have accepted that version.


    Have a nice Christmas,

    I see that I explained my phone's evolution badly. The "Android replacement" is the new phone. It's a fancy all singing-all dancing GUI-driven phone, for people gifted with tiny fingers. I haven't initialized it on the 4G network yet. That's what I meant by "activating", which is a term unfortunately M$ also uses for its Windows products.

    I'm still using the Nokia. But it may get turned off permanently on 1/1/18...

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Good morning ? Paul,

    I saw the time stamp was in the morning ;o)

    I see that I explained my phone's evolution badly. The "Android replacement" is the new phone. It's a fancy all singing-all dancing GUI-driven phone, for people gifted with tiny fingers.

    My son lent me a more modern Nokia version, but I didn't like it because
    the texts were so tiny that I would have had to wear reading glasses all
    the time.

    I haven't initialized it on the 4G network yet. That's what I meant
    by "activating", which is a term unfortunately M$ also uses for its
    Windows products.

    My stationary Win10 machine just got itself upgraded to the latest
    update. Lots of additional stuff to the previously installed functions
    and a lot of new functions.

    I'm still using the Nokia. But it may get turned off permanently on 1/1/18...

    Mine will not be turned off.
