Opera is Norwegian??
Forgive my interruption to this "aTypical debate", but for those of you punting the "Opera, EU, Microsoft, apple" take them to court, might want to consider that Norway isn’t in the EU.

The manditory adoption of such a device would make all speed cameras, and mobile SAFETY camera vans obsolete in a single day, them being such a gravy train and all it just aint gona happen.
If they are optional then that's never going to sell either, another stupid idea from another stupid quango (think tank), justifying their existence (I will go back to my Daily Mail now thanks!)
Clunk the door closed, Click the switch to technology solving another problem that didnt exist.
How this seller's attempt at recourse with the buyer will work, god knows, this seller has now, in theory attracted every idiot with too much testosterone, to bid on his items and screw his business right up. (Watch this space)
But it's more than just this one seller. I for one feel a little sorry for some sellers, I know that eBay has become the online auction market leader, its enabled lots of people to make a living from selling online, and now 1000's of people are reliant upon eBay for their living.
But eBay have now turned the screws and now punish sellers. Sellers are given unfair terms of trade, with increased fees, no recourse to complain about buyers and limited payment facilities (Paypal). This is a monopolistic tie in that is going and has ruined many people lives. The very lives upon which eBay was built.
Its time eBay changed its tactic and become the auction site that did the right thing, set itself a goal for the end of the year, a modest income, and used the rest to improve the experience. Stop the hiding of bidder's names, Stop the no negative feedback from sellers, and allow other forms of payment.
None of this will happen however. We all just plod along, blindly laughing at the odd seller or bidder that tries to make a noise, when all along it eBay is laughing loudest at us, whilst drinking bubbly bought with our money.
NO It was the camels that were preoccupied with the quadratic equations. the mice are just in charge
"The fact is that camels are far more intelligent than dolphins.* They are so much brighter that they soon realized that the most prudent thing any intelligent animal can do, if it would prefer its descendants not to spend a lot of time on a slab with electrodes clamped to their brains or sticking mines on the bottoms of ships or being patronized rigid by zoologists, is to make bloody certain humans don't find out about it."
* Never trust a species that grins all the time. It's up to something.
I've been running W2k then XP on the same machine for about 8 years now, its been solidly stable with XP SP2 (Xeon 550mhz & 2 meg VGA onboard) I however suspect SP3 will kill it? The patch is free but the new hardware required to support is will annoy me as its money that was ear marked for beer not M$ upgrade you kit tax.
