Re: aciclovir tablets (for herpes simplex virus/cold sores)

At Fascino pharmacy, it's called Falerm. 200 and 400mg tablets. Price? Arrgh, it's been a few years since a friend visiting from the US needed it. I think it's around 250b for a box of 25 200mg tabs at their Market Village store. I do remember a box of 25 cost about the same as a strip of 5 at the o...

Re: Airbus A380 superjumbo saved from extinction by Emirates

Ok,Emirates are regarded very highly worldwide,but why are the airlines who initially placed orders and are currently flying the A380 not re-ordering,and cancelling and buying other Airbus products. When this story broke a few days ago the business press explained airlines must adapt to change. Alm...

Re: The computer and software security thread

Yes that's what I see. Win 10 is now fully up to day and system restarted but the buttons are greyed out and have been every time I've run InSpectre, so still are inactive. Weird. I'll check their website tomorrow. Did you "run with elevated administrator privilege"? If so, how? Do you understand t...

Re: Another San Paulo story

Re: The computer and software security thread

There is no such thing as computer security, only thing you can do is lengthen the odds as to whether you will be compromised by the scumbags. Both Merriam and Webster disagree.

Re: New Ford Mustang

If you have the cash and a live near a track that does non-competitive 'track days', the New Ford Mustang is not the car you. You need 2. First is a replica of the '68 Fastback from the movie for street use. Second is a 2016-2018 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 R . No need to buy it new. Plenty of well ca...
