I got the email this morning , and must use Log me in twice a month to support my parents who live some distance from me. A friend recommended Teamviewer after I got the email , so will be trying it tonight to see if it meets my requirements. Dont think I can go back to 1st line support style questions with my mother anymore!

+ - Firefox 23 finally kills "blink" tag->

Submitted by nk497
nk497 writes: The "blink" tag in HTML has at last been laid to rest, with Mozilla removing support for the much-maligned text style in the latest version of the Firefox browser. The blink tag was never officially supported in Internet Explorer or Chrome, but Firefox inherited it from Netscape Navigator. Opera previously supported it as well, though that ended when the Norwegian browser firm flipped from its own Presto engine to, ironically, Chrome's Blink engine. Google has admitted that the Blink engine was named partially after the flashy element, but has promised that its own browser "will never support the blink tag".

As a biker of over 22 years I used to think this would be a good idea. However after seeing the way London Taxi drivers are to all 2 wheelers not convinced. They have to do the "knowledge" on 2 wheels while they learn the way around all the taxi routes, but once in a black cab show total distain for all other vehicles on the road. Also the spotty Chavs/Neds once they have sold the scooter after turning 17 don't seem very aware of bikes and cycles once they are in a car.

That is Dyson's Project Orion , technically you could get something the mass of a Destroyer into space. However pesky things like treaties & fallout killed that dead. However "if" you could get a lot of nukes into space safely you could build something in orbit rather than a ground launch.
