This may work...

Hit the SHIFT key 5 times. A message will pop up asking if you want to turn sticky keys on. Go to the settings and turn off sticky keys

else,

Click "Start" and select "All Programs." 
Click "Accessories" and select "Ease of Access." 
Click "Ease of Access Center." 
Click "Make Keyboard Easier to Use." 
Click "Set Up Sticky Keys." Deselect the checkbox that says "Turn on Sticky Keys When Shift is Pressed Five Times." Make sure the box that says "Turn on Sticky Keys" is not checked. Click "OK" to save your changes. 
Click "Set Up Filter Keys." Uncheck the box that says "Turn on Filter Keys." Click on the checkbox next to "Turn On Filter Keys When Right Shift Is Pressed For 8 Seconds" to deselect it. Click "OK" to save your changes. 
Click "OK" again to save all of the keyboard accessibility changes you have made.

Thanks for the support Rocket.  I'm lucky that one of my hobbies is model engineering so I have a lathe and milling machine etc. so I can do little projects like this.  Got the first pair finished today apart from painting and mounting.  I'll see how they go before making the second set in case I have to change the design at all.

Great Job rocket, this is nice.,

I was able to access the rangehood vent, cap thingy on the roof of Athena, pulled it apart, washed it., went to re assemble it and hurt my back., being on the couch most of day with hot pack, waiting for my son in law to come home so he could finish the job.,

DON'T YOU HATE IT WHEN YOU START SOMETHING AND CAN'T FINISH IT HMMMMM...,

I finally got my Camper Trolley (Caravan mover) working properly...after updating all of its electronic internals.

Cant really do without it either as van can only be swung around to its parking spot with mover....no room to back it with fourby. Have a dual Maco Mule as backup....but my shoulders are stuffed..so Camper Trolley is the go.

 

 

Cheers  Keith

I haven't been doing much here at Lake Bonney SA as it has been raining for the last few days. Went for a drive and found a nice camp back along the Murray River at Moorook. A small place that welcomes RVs caravans and campers. We will be doing a move tomorrow.
Someone said " A change is as good as a holiday" ... Soo I think another holiday is in order? Yes?

Finished the cassette full light problem just as it turned dark last night.!!! The forecast was for heavy rain this morning, and started around 8.15 and by lunch 34 mm.

Our tv in the van sometimes gives a poor signal at the antenna point closest to the tv and we have to run a lead from the opposite side of the van from the Wineguard amplifier. So I pulled the antenna socket out and found that the braid had not been stripped back AND was shorted to the center conductor. What really gives me ****s is poor design AND poor workmanship. Those two seem to be so common these days, far more common than common sense!!!!!!biggrin

Another job off the van list.

I am worn out now, one of Sarg's nuts worked loose on the trip here and I had to lie on the grass and hang on to his nut while he crawled under his bed to screw it tight. Might have to rest now.

 Hi Rocket,  well this camp is quite good, a lot more people's here and ski boats running up & down in front on the river. 

Nice grass all around and gas bbqs, general store and pub across the road. Might stay a week or so ...cheers Sarg.

 That must have been fun Colleen!!!!!!  Always good to have a rest after playing round with nuts and screws!!!!

We are heading north, after having said goodbye to friends all over Victoria, and in Melboure - though I am going back to Melbourne tonight for dinner with friends - another friend and I are driving down together.  Still overcast, bring on the sun!!!

Heading off to the SCG in a few minutes for the ODI...Australia v the Poms.

A lovely Xmas pressie from my wife.

Looks like it is a reasonable walk from motel on a nice day.

 

Cheers   Keith

Picked up my modified genset box today and now contemplating how I am going to mount it.

Has to be done over the weekend as we are heading away for a few days on Monday to

deliver the Club Lounge to its new owner just south of Hamilton.

Wanting to free camp and have aircon if it turns hot.

I have removed the two sliding doors between the rear ensuite and kitchen

and will replace them with a shower curtain. So busy busy weekend.biggrin

Aussie Paul. smile

we had to return early to Perth to boot 2 boarders out of sons house. Turns out they are violent druggies and unemployed, but had suckered him in with a good act and behaved themselves of a couple of weeks before playing up.

Booted them out a week ago and last Friday went to movies. Came out and found all 4 tyres had been slashed - the female ex boarder. Witnesses watched her (in daylight in large carpark) and description matched her. Cops wouldn't turn up, even though she was still wandering around in carpark (WA police pretty slack in Perth - they want you to go to them or report it on-line.....apparently if you murder someone now, you take the body to one of the few 24 hr stations left in Perth.

Rest day day spent getting insurance co to get vehicle towed, stored, assessed (pretty obvious that 4 tyres had been slashed) by a panel beater. No wonder insurance premiums are so high. Vehicle towed south and stored overnight, then towed north to panel beater and dropped off. Then towie came back and towed vehicle south to get new tyres put on, then towie came back and carted vehicle to panel beater for me to collect - worse than the worst govt dept!!!

Today I spent all morning doing the police job of going to the shopping centre and to Woolworths (where the ex boarder had been shop lifting earlier) and arranging for copies to be made of their CCTV recordings. Because the WA police are so slack, they are unlikely to interview the witnesses for several weeks by which time they will have gone "cold" on being involved or forgotten what the offender looks like. I know - I'm an ex-cop of 16 years.

The WA police spend more time on their public image than doing the job. The latest is an expensive TV campaign telling us they have even more police on the street and all these poor buggesr have had their1st name printed (at significant cost) on the front and back of all their items of uniform. So rather than being called "officer, "copper" or less flattering names, they will have to put up with little sh** kickers calling them Tom or Amy or Luke. Another great idea by some over paid chardonnay drinking marketing team.

Changes of the druggie being charged = 0% and the only costs are for the insurance co and me with the premium

Have had a nice couple of days, dropped in at Greens on our way back north, a nomad friend arrived and joined us at happy hour, then another friend arrived. Good to see them all, as well as the others we were happy houring with, probably won't see them for a while.

Moved on Saturday, now at Hay, Sandy Point - what a great spot, heaps of room, on the banks of the Murrumbidgee, toilets, bbq's, and close to town - about 1k, will stay a day or so. Sun is shining, fishing boats are out and a bit early for the speed boats an skiers, so nice and peaceful.
