'sometimes I probably wear my heart on my sleeve too much'.....you stay just as you are, you come across as a lovely, caring lady.

'I think for some it is more than a message board and genuine friendships form' .....I wouldn't argue with that and all with a common interest that binds them together.

You're welcome, Tracey.

Btw, tried to PM you but couldn't. So will need to say it here, I've being truly moved by the compassion & kindness you have shown to Mike and equally moved by his reaction.

One could be forgiven for not remembering that It's only a bloody message board!

thanks for the reply they are about 4 inches apart should I thin them out a little.

Not really, cairnsie...because of root disturbance, it wouldn't be worth risking a check to growth....they'll be just fine.

cairnsie - not sure of the diameter of your obelisk from what you say. However, I would guess that a spacing of about 6ins between plants should be about right. 

OL - As with the others i.e. 7 to 21 days depending on soil temperatures.

Mine only has 'sleep' but I reckon that will be one and the same.

But then, that's what it does automatically.

I'm for turning it off David.  Is it a slow one?  However, many do keep it on all the time.  Can you simply put it into hibernate mode.....quicker then to activate

Thanks, Verdun.....on the contrary it's really fast, which given the type of processor & 32Mb fibre optic broadband connection, is what I expect.

I was just toying with the idea of leaving it on more or less permanently.

Didn't want to start a new thread and I know I can rely on the collective knowledge of you Forkers (that sounds rood when you read it back ) .....I digress, I was wondering about the fors & agins of leaving one's pooter switched on all the time, instead of booting-up several times a day.

I use a desktop mainly and it & the monitor automatically go into sleep mode according to predetermined settings (set at 10 minutes at the mo)......just wondered whether or not to leave it on all the time, unless I'm away from home.
