Got a panicked phone call from Mrs T whilst I was at work today. She'd turned the PC on to be confronted by a "You have got a virus message". The symptoms all sounded very odd so I told her to leave it and use the net book instead.
When I got home the error message did look awfully odd, - a webpage that looked like a hard disk scan, several "Trojan" files highlighted and so on. However the English on it was poorly written and had numerous spelling mistakes. So I shut it down and kicked off my virus programme to do a scan.
It's still doing it 3 hours later but it has found some malware. Admittedly it is only half way through, so this could be a late night.
Undistracted by the laptop I've been able to devote an evening to my Peter Pig Covenanters. They're coming along nicely, mainly due to the simple paint scheme required ("hodden grey"). I shall have another couple of regiments glued to their bases by tomorrow night, waiting for polyfilla. By the way, does anyone have any good sources for Covenanter standards? My books are a bit vague, - did they really have saltires on back grounds other than blue? I suppose I could go through by back numbers of Military Modelling but that'll take forever.
Whilst I'm on the subject of asking for help does anyone know who makes 15mm BT-5s for the SCW that are available in the UK. Best I've got so far is from Quality Castings on the US Old Glory website, but they're $10 each plus postage.
