Odd log in behaviour

I am away from home presently and working using a small laptop, wanted to do some mail checking via Exetel webmail. When trying to log in to Exetel, from the 'front page' I normally see a short message in a window saying something about forwarding me to membership log in. Today I successfully logged...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Well I never expected that I would be delayed this much. One thing led to another and my internet speed has behaved quite well so the focus has gone elsewhere. I have however not forgotten this thread at all. With winter approaching there should be more indoor time showing up and I will be back. Tod...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Looks like I am having a bit of time out from this as I have got stuck in some Linux problems. I decided to download a lightweight PCLinuxOS called MATE with view to install on an older Toshiba laptop as a backup for use over Xmas. My nose for finding problems did not fail me. Be back later. :D

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

In the back of my mind I had to get back and check on the 'archiving' a thread/topic. A few years back now when very active for a period on the PCLinuxOS forum there were certain topics with very interesting technical and specific information, an absolute must for a beginner like me. As forum regula...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

......gnuplot -persist -e "filename='xyz.dat’" plot.cmd in the shell script, and plot filename in plot.cmd. This seemed very logical, but I did not succeed when wanting to use a construct like: "yQLN-$vardate" as xyz.dat and ypQLN as filename, I gave up when I realised that all I needed to do was t...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

I have had a quick look at your test tool, finding that it was not too hard to follow the expect code. I will get to try the expect a little later I hope. Oziexplorer we have invested so much time in that I think we are unlikely to change to anything else, I think I can safely say over hundreds of h...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

My wife has tried to use my PCLinuxOS KDE and that confused her a fair bit because she could not really see the difference as she started with an open Opera session. The multi desktop she has not discovered yet. The basic programs we need on the XP is: Magic Mail Monitor, Opera, Open Office and the ...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

The virus fight ongoing but I think we are well defended. Still trying to get a clue when it came.To relax from virus chase I decided to combine the 3 scripts I was running to 2. First I run one script getting all the data and then I load the gnuplot command file. Some time back I did add the gnuplo...

I understand your suggestion fine. I am presently taking break as I have got a really nasty Virus problem on our XP which I will have to deal with. My wife need the pc to run. :D

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Because this topic contains a lot of good information I certainly like to keep a copy of it, to retain the formatting in the posts I save each page. Eventually I expect the topic to be deleted in usual cleanup/compaction process and searching the topic gets harder because of the page break up. I hav...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Mains power to the pc and modem was switched off over night. The modem was powered up 7:30 and 8:15 it did work as my wife checked Willy Weather. At 11:30 we found that the modem was locked up (I think, because all lights looked ok) I could ping the modem too ok but not http://www.exetel.com.au. A q...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

The summer has halted my 24 hour speed testing, my desktop pc grunted in disapproval of the temperature. We came to an agreement, pc has rest from continuous operation during daytime until further notice :D Tried your suggestion about grep the wanted information from one of the files. Saving the val...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Yes that link did the trick, though the script probably ought to be tidied up a bit further still. Stumbled over the margin show could not resist trying to add this in script multiplot> load "y_adslinfo_z1.cmd" lmargin is set to 10 bmargin is computed automatically rmargin is set to 10 tmargin is co...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Now it seems I have multiplot working, though I took advantage of automatic and some guessing to charge through in short time. Box filling has me struggling a bit but googling helped. Needs tidying up and I guessed that I should unset some variables, this will have to wait. the two plots do not line...

Re: Charged $220 incorrect call out fee.

Gee whizz, this problem almost got me. I pondered over your suggestion that it was the "missing axis" statements. I did put them in as shown in the new slightly shaved script. when the added axis statements made no difference I started shaving off anything that did not look like your script lines. I...
