Oh, I see, the Church has ALWAYS confused me, now more than ever, they will allow GAY bishops but not WOMEN bishops on a point of so called Biblical principle, (God allegedly being a "HE")

Maybe they should try reading Leviticus 20:13 or Leviticus 18:22 which are both somewhat more explicit on the subject than the arbitrary denial of women's rights and equalities.

Mind you, what bemused me was that it was the Leity and not the Clergy that vetoed the ordination of women bishops at the vote in the General Synod.

Here's a thought, which rules would apply if a Lesbian applied to become a bishop?

Would it be permissible because she's gay or prohibited because she's a woman?

And somebody who was transgender would REALLY give them something to think about but I suppose it would depend on which direction any gender reassignment was aimed! (I bet you two don't have a clue what I'm talking about - that's OK, neither do I)

Answers, pinned to a 50 note, to the Fund For Distressed Wireless Persons, C/O The County Hotel Llandudno, to arrive not later than 22nd March 2013

Hmm, let's see if THAT generates any controversy in the Wells of Silence - ooh look, there goes that squadron of purple flying pigs again!!

Oh and the answer to your question Jack was, of course, Larry Grayson

"Two things must Ye know of the Wise Woman"

"She's wise?"

"And..."

"She's a woman?"

"Oh, you know her then?"

Who? and What series?

Well Don the quotation is by one of my favourite characters The one and only Black Adder. I seem to remember he was addressing poor Baldrick.  Didn't Leviticus play in goal for Inter Milan? You are right ,you lost me in a Transgender Jungle. I wonder what Alan made of it? TTFN Jack.  P.S. Great news that the number attending at the next Reunion remains constant. I had a feeling that most of them had been transported to another planet or maybe even Tasmania. J.

Quite right Jack, it's from Blackadder II and the conversation takes place between Rowan Atkinson and Michelle Dotrice when Blackadder is in search of the "Wise Woman" in order to get advice on his relationship with his servant "Bob" (in fact a girl pretending to be a boy - hmm, sounds like we're back to the previous post)

You might enjoy some of the clips referenced here;

I'm really looking forward to The Reunion - as always - rail tickets are bought and securely stored in readiness!

Thanks Don,the mention of Michelle Dotrice, reminds me that she is a famous 'corpser' ie an actor who collapses into uncontrollabe giggles when shooting a scene. She giggle so much she used to wet herself! Some nice examples on 'Google(actors corpsing) TTFN Jack.

Sorry to hear about your problems Alan, that is why it is SO important to install reliable anti-virus software (remembering to update it daily) and a decent firewall, as well as a reliable backup system such as disk imaging so that if you DO get hit by a virus, you can go back to a previous version of your system in about half an hour.

Zone Alarm do a fairly decent, free, anti-virus and firewall combination but there are quite a few other free ones around and "ToDo" disk imaging from Easeus has saved my bacon on a number of occasions when things have gone awry, but again, there are other good free imaging programmes about.

Also, it's a good idea to split your disk up into at least two partitions, provided your hard disk has sufficient capacity (if it isn't already partitioned) then you can keep important data, music, photos etc as well as your disk image, in a separate "box" so that if your operating system gets attacked, it shouldn't cause you to lose anything important if your system needs to be rebuilt (not something you would need to do if you have a reliable disk image to fall back on).

I must admit that I keep my last three images, one on a dedicated partition on the hard disk and the older two on an external drive (they're not too expensive) and I image my system drives (I've got both XP and Windows 7 on my computer) about once a month as well as keeping copies of my data on an external drive that way, even if I had to replace the entire hard drive, I'm in a position to recover to a reasonably recent copy of my system without having to worry about catching up on too many updates.

Hope you manage to get things back to normal soon.

Well Alan,I'm glad your technician managed to dismiss your virus. My head is still spinning from that old 6th former Signor Armour's hard and soft discs etc! If you want to see some awful puns take a dekko at Charlotte Honeychurch's page! If 'M' will let you. Who was 'M'? TTFN Jack.

There is an external hard disk called a Click Free which when plugged into the USB port of your PC will automatically search for any document files and back them up. It does not matter where they are on the hard disk it finds them and puts them all into separate folders. The software on the hard disk looks for files ending in .jpg, .doc .xls and many others.
http://www.clickfree.com/product_grouping_matrix/matrix_view/id/C6D
Very simple to use - plug in and it works. Important to note this only saves the doc files and is not a complete system recovery. It does not take a full copy of your PC, so you cannot restore the whole PC - just the docs. I use a click free dongle (15) which contains the same software but is connected between my USB and my own external hard drive. (In my case the external hard drive is actually an icy box doc with 2 plug in ESATA hard drives from past PC's.) Like Don My operating system is Windows 7 Ultimate Pro which includes a virtual copy of XP for older programs. Win 7 allows you to make an image copy of your hard disk and an emergency recovery disk which will restore the whole computer - not just the docs. I use both because a system recovery is no use if your computer fails totally and you have to switch to a new computer which is unlikely to have the same specifications as the old one. A separate doc bu is good. So be safe and sure and take a image and a doc backup! p.s. Kaspersky internet Security works for me as virus program and firewall. I believe Jack has a red bucket full of sand and first aid kit by his PC .. but it could all be lies? Surprised))
Oh the new version of Click Free does the system files and software as well and some other clever stuff like repair.

There are lots of different ways of achieving a secure result.

I like "ToDo" disk imager mainy because I've used it since XP days, so I'm familiar with it and also, I have the recovery system set up on a memory stick so that I can use it with a netbook.

But I only use that for the two system drives "C" and "I", documents, music, photos, videos and downloads, I just copy straight across to one (or more) of my external hard drives, usually onto a 1Tb, USB powered portable drive, though I have accumulated others over the years.

Nevertheless, keeping comprehensive backups is a MUST, there's an old saying "there are two types of computer user, those who regularly back up their systems and those who wish they had" - VERY true.

I reckon, by now, Jack has gone into therapy!
