Sparky forgot to remind you to unplug your power surge protector first to get the desired effect. I am sure it was just an oversight on his part.

most of us Canuks are related to Polar Bears who travel north in the summer and further north in the winter.
I prefer 12 gage to solve my computor problems.
Do you expect a service that thinks skidoos over dogsleds is to new fangled, to understand e-mail.
and shame on anyone who would waste good beer on a computor

The problem you have is your computer is only plugged into 110V current. Convert your plug to 220 and plug it into a 50 AMP Service. This will immediately "dry out" your computer and remove the beer from the mother board.
Your other problem can be handled by daily Email requests (preferable grumpy) to Post Canada telling them all the trouble they are causing by not using "yankee" zip procedures.
By the way,,,,, you do have it backward you know... you are supposed to be down here in the winter and up there in the summer.

I'm sorry Jeff and other Canadians I was wrong. While the Roster does not require a zip code, if you entered a Canadiam Postal Code it would reject it because it contained "letters" I have corrected this problem and it will now allow both zip codes and postal codes. But it will still just allow one entry per email address.

Roy, I am a Canadian adjuster and I too have been having a problem with trying to change my roster information. I did what you said and poured cold beer in my computer, and now, not only does the roster change not work, but my computer doesn't either.
Do you have any more suggestions?

Hi Jeff, sorry your having trouble with the Roster. The Roster supports adjusters from all Countries including Canada. You may have noticed that the State drop down memu list both States and Canadian Provinces. The entries that get rejected get regected most of the time because they are already listed in the Roster. The database only allows one entry per email address. We have some Canadians already listed in the database, including you with the entry that you made in August of 99. If you wish to update your information just send me a note with what you would like to change and it will be done.
PS, a cold beer may also work.

Maybe if you Canadian boys would lower the cost of gasoline AND bring Roy Cupps a quantity of fresh, carbonated, alcoholic beverages, then you wouldn't have this problem!

I'm a cat adjuster from Canada, when I try to put my name on the roster it rejects because of my postal code, I think we need to adjust it as they're more and more canadian cat adjusters coming on stream.
