What browser are you using currently?

I've recently changed back to Opera from Firefox, as it offers a basic free VPN built in.

You?

Most of the time I use Firefox; I use Chrome for Google Earth. I didn't know that Opera gives you a VPN which I might try for BBC News, because the videos are 'not available in your location.'

Wes can actually make a clever little remark (well I giggled) when he tries.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?

I had a VPN but the mercury ointment fixed it.

It took me a second read but that's quite funny, BB.

No: I'm hanging on to this. One day it will be worth a lot of money.

No, but this works well with my Leading Edge Model D. Cost me $1850 in 1986. I bought the el cheapo no hard drive version. I couldn't see why anyone would want a hard drive when you could cram so much onto one of those little floppy drives. IIRC they wanted another $400 for a 20 MB hard drive. Sheer foolishness.

Ah, who didn't love DOS? Those were the days my friend.

Way too much newfangled technology these days.
