At last!

I recently upgraded my PC to Ubuntu 9.04 and in the process Flash stopped working.

I couldn't use iPlayer, YouTube, Last fm or listen to tracks people were posting here.#

I found a work around for YouTube but the rest were still buggered. I din't have the time to do the job properly so I left it for a while.

However, last night I did do the job properly and plunged into the entrails of Linux, did some research, wrote a few scripts, removed the offending bits that were causing Flash to not work, downloaded and installed Flash 10 and now EVERYTHING WORKS properly again.

I had been wondering, but as you weren't absent completely, figured you were just busy.

Re your professional abilities with IT: I'm the one over here with a face part-green with envy, part-seething-red !! My under-performing laptop will be with you by courier shortly.


Welcome back.
