I would have gladly done all three in exchange for some sleep! My son is has been waking up a dozen times a night for a week now.
Maybe he'll start sleeping through when he's married lol!

Does anyone know, who cleans their stovetop parts with ammonia in a plastic bag overnight, if you use just pure ammonia or if you mix it with water?

We are thinking it is more likely infection than stone, but shall see.

Straight out of the bottle, Kylie. You need full strength to clean off the crud.

Just a tip. Most of my stove top parts are enameled metal. Not bare metal parts. The one exception is a flame distributor that is bare metal. The ammonia is hard on those bare metal parts. When I do it again, I won't include them.

ok guys. anyone interested in guessing who i was on the phone with just now? the man on the line tells me he is calling from windows. he is calling because a problem has been detected on my computer, a hacker. he says mcafee cannot help this problem because it is not a virus. he speaks with an accent, it might be indian, but i don't know. he claims to be calling from highway avenue, u.k. i let him go on long enough to see that he is evidently trying to hook up with my pc. after we hang up, i dial *69 and i am told that the number calling my line was 000-000-0000.

can anyone tell me what a call like this one might mean, what the deal was supposed to be? i didn't even know how to go about effectively questioning this caller, even though i was terribly curious to know what he was up to.....

Calls like that are usually fraudulent. They try and get your personal details for either financial gain or identity theft ect. Microsoft won't contact you unless you contacted them first..

Vit, we had these calls come on my Dad's phone for probably a year. Don't give them any information, and hang up as soon as possible. They will keep calling - they will not listen to anything you say like "if you keep calling I will call the police". We have a system where you can trace a harassment call three times and then call the police (*57). The problem with this group is that they (as have others) have learned a way to not show the actual phone number so it can not be traced.

I really hope you don't continue to get this - it was really scary for my Dad and I ended up taking the calls. I am sure we got at least one a month and sometimes more. They didn't stop until we got rid of the number. Please be careful.

Snip is so right. They do not and can not know anything about your computer. And if it was Microsoft (who wouldn't call), the number would be identified and they would be calling from a local office to you or Seattle - not the UK.
