May I be the first to say:
"Mine your own business!"
?

And with that post I go Platinum...

Think how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of the population are stupider than that.

Yes, John, and I hope that you will be the last!
And with that post I go Platinum...
So that's the reason for all these comebacks over the years (seems like a lifetime).
You just wanted to stand on my shoulders!

Congratulations.
Now shut up (HUGE GRIN!)

Cheers
Chris

@Bob
Oh Lordy, Lordy, Lord.
He's only two rungs back now.
Don't encourage him ... :flee: :flee: :flee:

P.S. Hans: If I ask for this thread to be deleted, does that throw John back to " GoldLounger"?
And if so, is there a limit to the number of Threads I can ask to be deleted?
Thanks ever so.

Cheers
Chris

If you want to save yourself the trouble of passing the hat for a new 20TB disk drive, sure!

"Unit production peaked in 2010 at about 650 million units and has been in a slow decline since then" I would imagine this is the internet gradually assuming responsibility for storage; no need to save the file to my drive, I can always get it off the web.

Cheers
Chris

P.S. A feature I really would like is something that pops-up a warning when I hijack one of my own threads ... :sad:
C!

I have attached a 7 KB zip file with two documents.

Yahoo! is not good search engine for the data I seek, so I set aside this morning to learn how to search for web pages through Google.
Big Mistake; took me less than thirty minutes thanks to the first ten minutes of this video
Selenium is a Cool Tool.

So you will find within the zip
(1) A VBA module, stripped down from the original and, because I like living dangerously, all the "wait/sleep" cycles disabled
(2) A Word Document holding the results of my search in the Chrome browser with Google search engine.
This is fun!

Cheers
Chris
