Welcome to DaniWeb son, but I'm afraid we don't do your homework for you. Our rules state: provide evidence of having done some work yourself if posting questions from school or work assignments. So, if you can tell us exactly what you've done so far and where you are stuck, show us your code (assuming you've got that far by the looks of it) then maybe someone will be able to help you. Although, to be fair, if your final exams are in a week and you don't even know what an array is then maybe you are beyond help. Do you know what a troll is, perhaps?

It was broke, that's the thing. From the viewpoint of traffic generation if nothing else...

Still nothing to add that's really constructive though, you just seem to be repeating the fact that you don't like it without offering specifics as to why or suggestions as to how it could be improved (other than going back to the way it was, which isn't going to happen).

I did, indeed, miss that one.

Brilliant find, and yet still more evidence to suggest that Dell is totally schizophrenic when it comes to selling Linux laptops.

OK, so given that Microsoft has seen fit not to include Fax and Scan with Vista Home Premium (although Business and Ultimate users get it) what Vista friendly third party apps are you using to replace the missing fax functionality?

Assuming, of course, you do not have an all-in-one printer come fax machine to handle such things that is...
