Apologies, I find these days that firstly I don't explore either 
hardware or software like I used to when I was 14. There are so many 
things I don't know how to do or have time to do any more. And secondly 
I'm finding my way of working is becoming more and more antiquated, I 
can program but it seems everyone else puts me to shame as I still 
program as if I'm using Qbasic! As for inline posting it just seems like 
a lot more effort and an order of magnitude slower to delete the bits 
that aren't needed and spread my reply out over umpteen different 
locations in the mail. I'm just a bit of a dinosaur.

I've given up with the keyboard layout. I've lost the link to the bug 
again and the version on my machine is Installed: 1.5.8-2ubuntu2. I'll 
just put up with it until it fixes itself on an update.

The threaded view is a great improvement though. Thanks.
