    I read a post recently, to which I had an answer to the member's problem. This answer would have included a link to another forum for a guide and software. Before I answer the post I just wanted to ascertain if this is acceptable. I've searched everywhere to post this. I hope it's in the correct section.

    Sure, if there's no similar guide available at our guide section, you're more than welcome to assist people to visit other forums, sites, etc. We don't have this attitude problem that some sites have "my dad's car is bigger than your dad's, thats why you can't play with us!" :)

    Well, nup, I'm not Jewish. Gentile in fact. Heathen to be more precise. If I attempt to walk into a church, pieces of brick start falling off the building. I was caught in a thunderstorm not long ago and lightning struck not far from me. I knew I was'nt popular when a booming voice emanated from the sky. [bold]BUGGER!!, MISSED!![/bold]. In Australia, if you ask a person whether something is Kosher, it generally means 'is it legal'. I suspect it originated from the 'Cockney' area in London ie: those people born within earshot of the Bow Bells. I could be wrong. I also remember Dennis Waterman and George Cole using it quite a bit in a British TV series most of you would be too young to remember. The show's name was 'Minder'. Oh, and all those funny little ', they're called punctuation marks :)
