    Or you can get several of them on a card in a Pound Shop.

    Also note that you can get a more local version of the pool.ntp.org time servers.

    Why can't we just generalise it and agree that "most programs and operating systems are not completely secure", and then we don't need to spend time debating the matter?! :whisper:

    If you want to format a hard disk as NTFS in Linux, I suggest the best approach is to Google for "Linux format disk NTFS" (without the double quotes) and choose the most intelligible hit!

    I disliked TeraCopy when it first came out, and stuck with Robocopy, whose foibles I am familiar with (/XJ, anyone?!).
