  2. thanks RF didnt think of that, my brother is POA, I will give him a call
  3. so my best bet is to try and proof dads identity to microsoft....so they will send us the code to reset the password?
  4. so my old man is 80 and has the beginnings of dementia... he has forgotten his password on his old toshiba laptop and the account he used to set up in we can't access as we can't proove it in the microsoft recovery page, he no longer has a credit card, has never used xbox/skype/outlook, and doesn't know previous passwords i contacted telstra and the email account doesn't exist....the bloke reinstated it (apparantly) but when I go into mytelstra (in dads name) it wont recognise the code I am sent anyway I have downloaded FREE 3 x by-passing software, problem is when it comes to a

  9. great get habs, did it send a signal for you to follow, did you know where you dropped it, or was it just bloody lucky you found it?
  10. yeah mate I get you, SG12s for what I do I can't justify, although ironically coz I am a lower level rider, is probably more reason I should have them if that makes sense? i was looking at SG10 per OMG knowledge and wisdom, but I like the "waterproof" option...are the SG12's waterproof/resistant fellas?
  11. well macca I hope you are wrong mate (i know its just your opinion) as this arvo i lucked out and found a brand new pair of size 12 in dandy for $500... how ever they go they will be better than the $150 AMX specials i currently use....they are working a treat as I type this...😜
