Hi all, i really need some help with this computer. Since day 1 it will not send any of my emails, it used to send them mto mym outbox but that is not happening now. If i go to a web site it gets there great if i click on a career opertunities it goes to the page good but when i click on a job i get nothing for about 20 seconds and then the error message pops up saying the servfer is reconnecting or the address is not valid, or something about a proxy. This is the same error i get with my e-mail to. I took my comp back to future shop today and we set it up and it worked great, no issues at all. I have replaced the modem, i have no router. 3 Shaw phone techs no success, tech at my home nothing.Any insight would be greaT.

Nortan360
i decided to pick this name because the first antivirus i had was norton360..
I noticed after a while i kept spelling it wrong by calling it Nortan360 not Norton360
The 360 can be related to alot of things Xbox, circles? :)
A friend of mine who works in the computer repair business always referred to the Symantec company as Nortans
As i found out norton360 wasnt the best antivirus ever (in my opinion!) i decided to remove it but i thought i should keep a little remerence of it. and keep it the way ive been spelling it incorrectly :unsure:

Well, my nick came to birth from one of my traits.

My persistence.

Anyhow, the main reason for my godfather giving me this nick follows:

While i was playing streetball, usually when i try to finish, my entry was fierce. So dudes who knew me, usually went aside when i start to accelerate... :) Or else, they`d bounce back or bounce "down" off the ground... :unsure:

How is this connected to my trait?

Well, what i start i finish in any means necessary. Nobody can stop me. I simply allways find the way.

So, my nick is a word from my language, for the english word Stampede.

Cheerz!

My second car was nicknamed attagirl, although she wasn't much to look at on the outside, the inside was really great. No rips or tears, great heater and radio, she sure was a hard working car and never gave me any trouble. I put alot of wear on her, and she always came through, that is until someone stole her from me. I sure did care for her and treated her good. Kept up on the tune-ups and oil changes. Guys would ask me to sell her to them , and I would tell them no way, she's a good running car, and I only paid $100 for her. So I took her name, and the rest is history.

Hello,

I'm new to this site so not sure if I can really post here but my nickname was given to me by my football coach meaning to not make mistakes. I'm not infallible though. I don't believe anyone is.

Kakariki is the Maori word for green.

There are multiple reasons I chose this for my online name:

I've always associated the colour green with nature, and I really, really love the outdoors.

Green is frequently associated with creativity, something that is also important to me.

I used the Maori word for green; as a relatively subtle way to display national pride, because I associate it with some great childhood memories, and because it sounds cooler.

Another reason why I chose this nick, is because it is relatively obscure and I hate creating an account on a new (for me) site and having to figure out how to spell my nick differently or choose a new one because mine has already been taken.
