    Put Hindon Street, so it's on the bottom of your computer screen, just under two inches in from the right hand side if you have a 15inch screen.
    Once the butler's passed you your specs, if you look towards the top left of the screen and you should see
    Eaton Place.

    You can click on "Notebooks" at top of map and search for "Hindon Street" (include " " as part of search key))

    Ah Pam, your timing was impecable, Charles had just returned from his half day off(the things you have allow when you have staff)
    Found street, however I did have to convert 15" screen to 24" screen I never thought a lograthim book could be so useful, haha
    (an aside, we were taught many moons ago lograthims, were never told what they would be used for, all the years I have worked they have never cropped up, but they did do this conversion for me)
    Very nice to hear from you again

    Actually Geoff, I think if I'd just written 'put Hindon Street so it's on the bottom of your computer screen fairly near to the right-hand corner and then move in a north-westerly direction' it would have (a) saved Charles having to pass the specs and (b) you having to go back to the classroom.

    I just put 'logarithm' into a search engine to check the spelling and one of the first options I was offered was 'logarithms for dummies'. Yep, that's the one I want. (I gave up after the first sentence in Wikipedia. ) I remember that the log books were the only aid we were allowed in maths exams. Long multiplication and long division ruled in those days. Sorry, I digress. I'll go and get my rather late lunch . . . . . . .
