How to get WINDOWS to manage wireless

I just had wireless crash on V's lappy......and it wouldn't refused to manage it and the laptop refused to let anything else manage it.
It kept telling me to find Windows Zero (damn you XP!!!!)
After days of trying to get Windows Zero config to manage wireless , I finally tracked down the following instructions :-

To start the Wireless Zero Configuration service, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, click Run, type c:windows\system32\services.msc /s, and then click OK.
2. Double-click Wireless Zero Configuration.
3. In the Startup type list, click Automatic, and then click Apply.
4. In the Service status area, click Start, and then click OK.

Lambo LP550?

Just when you thought the pinnacle of Lambo was the LP460.....well they have another in the books currently. Latest rumor on the new supercar state that there will be an option to 600hp - and that a GT version will get less than 3.2 second 0-60mph.
Also one point of note is that while the LP460 was only limited numbers, the LP550 is rated to become a full production car.

MailMarshal is crap

Well, MailMarshal is full of crap, and the people who have devised it can suck my .....

I just found out that i HAVE to take a link to this blog out of my email or the email accounts managed by MailMarshal will BLOCK my email from getting to my friends.

What a load of crap.

Lets wrap the internet in cotton wool to stop people being morons.

send me an email if you too feel like venting about MailMarshal (

The worst thing is that not only were my emails getting blocked, the person receiving was not being informed that a message was blocked to them....AND I WAS NOT INFORMED THAT MY EMAIL WAS GETTING BLOCKED!!!!!!

What a dumbass program - hey buddy what happened to Collision detection...?

New Harley Semi-Flat tracker

I remember seeing modded 883 sportsters that were converted to flat trackers when i was a kid, while it is humbling to see Harley to produce the models that actually looked and went good again - i still think this bike is to fat and heavy for market just yet.
However with Eric Buell now making his bikes bigger and uglier - i believe that if it wasn't for the Porsche inspired VROD we would see a demise of the big American icon all together.
I believe that the new XR1200R is a step in the right place for Harley - all we need is one more step - make this bike lighter.....then we will have a competing bike for the impressive Triumph Thruxton.
