    It's not working

    I received a call from a colleague the other day, after the usual greetings she exclaimed

    "Jezza, the green wiggly thing is not wiggling, can you help?"

    After a while I guessed what she was talking about, but I had to think.

    Please note this was a true life situation, there are no hidden codes and no underhand puzzle techniques. It was a straight question but I wanted to see if the puzzlemeisters could work out what she was talking about?

    Hello stranger, haven't seen you on the boards recently ( although I have been tucked up with one thing or the other)

    I'll give you another clue <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> I had just installed a peripheral which can be very handy</span hide>

    Re: It's not working

    I thought I would give the answer out for this one as it has gone cold.

    The story was that the lady in question had asked for a favour that I loaded up Activesync on her PC so that she could use her new Ipaq. I wouldn't normally do this but the was offer of a <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> in it for me. The green wobbly thing was her activesync icon!!!!!!
