Hi Martin,

I've downloaded and installed 64Mb file - was fine. If I download a Deb of Firefox from the
repositories - it always says I have the latest version - no probs with the download -
though speeds on "Sky Broadband are what I had over 30 years ago. No matter what country I
choose to install from - the result is the same. Oh well.....................

As for Boracay Island 40C really really spotless clean beaches - and thousands of colourful
fish in a warm sea - fantastic! We went for two days - but stayed five!! Like anywhere one
gets rip off crooks - but you can always tell the shady characters! The night life is pretty
good - lots of live bands - March is the real season - but it's good all year round - rained
about 3 times but that's good. Tourists from all over the world - Chinese and Koreans love
it! All the natives spear US English - but that's ok!

We left at 4 am this morning - got home to Makati Manila about 7.45 am - going took 8 hours
trucks over the mountains dirt roads! Crazy!. We are on FB - David Cooper - Shiela Cooper my
Mrs puts up loads of photos videos - so check it out!!

Time for a chilled beer!
