turn it off immediately)
> how do you make text flash on and off like a warning sign?
You might try an OnTime event procedure. The procedure would run
periodically and ,on alternate executions, set the text font color to either
a visible color or the same color as the cell background.
This would make the text appear to flash.

I've been using this SwissMemory USB drive for a couple years now on the same
computer system (an HP Pavillion notebook, Vista Ultimate 32-bit). As of
just yesterday, I can no longer access the drive. As soon as I plug it in, I
get a Blue Screen with the Stop Error 0x8E and my computer reboots. If I plug
the drive in before windows finishes booting, I can access the drive just
fine. However, anytime I plug the device in while Windows is already running,
I immediately get the Blue Screen and a reboot.
I've tried reformatting the flash drive, but it still happens. Any

If I have to reinstall the student/teacher edition, (which is good for

I have a Dell XPS-Z 866Mhz Pentium 3, with 384mb and a 20Gig hard
drive, which is running a fresh install of Windows XP.
For some reason even though I've transferred about 1 gig worth of
files back to the drive it is almost full, causing the reminders to
keep popping up. Before I re-installed windows XP I had the same
problem, and even thought I deleted all I could the hard drive would
begin to fill up again for no discernible reason.
And this is definitely not the first time I've had this problem. Can
