Those playing fields between Southbury Road and the QE2 certainly take up a lot of space, you could build a 100,000 capacity 'International' stadium , and still have room for a leisure complex, retail outlets and houses! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

There's a lot of old factories further up the road, near Southbury station, I remember from my paper-round that one of them had a proper pitch round the back.Surely that sort of area is ideal for a small stadium, it's not really near any houses...

The Invisible Man will know...

Ponders End boy I was, just like Syrup and Rob G


Can't quite place the pitch you mean, MKJ. I assume you don't mean Durants Park, or Enfield Ranger's pitches?

Personally I can't see the problem with houses near grounds -it works ok at Harrow! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Crown Road or Baird Road ( whichever's nearest Southbury station), I forget which one's which, turn in from Southbury Road and on the right about 100 yards down. Possibly not there now, we are talking 18 years ago!

But it was a full size works team pitch then

It was the Ripault's pitch. Behind the white factory with the Conifers. Been built on now I believe. Not very big an area anyway.

Yeah thought so, but the point I was trying to make was that there is no reason that I know of why industrial land can't be used to build a ground.

Didn't the taskforce or whatever they were called identify somewhere in the region of 160 possible sites for a new ground?

So why all this poncing around looking at Cheshunt etc..?
I would conclude that EFC(Tony) won't (or can't) spend money on building up a ground from scratch. Plus of course issues with the council wouldn't help.

I'd guess 90% of EFC supporters would rather play at a lower divisional level in Enfield, than have higher status but playing outside the borough. Obviously you ETFC supporters feel that way, otherwise you'd have stuck around.

This is all too gloomy for a bright Wednesday morning, I'm gonna get myself a nice steaming cup of black coffee to perk me up... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Absolutely. Remember the farce when Bin Laz had a scheme drawn up (allegedly) to upgrade Brimsdown, then pulled the plug two days BEFORE a public display of the plans?

Theoretically there could be a problem with building on land designated in the UDP as industrial. Again, it is alleged that Laz looked at a site behind Sainsbury's and Toys R Us, which would have been pefect, but the council put him off as it designated light industrial/retail, not leisure. However, if someone had a mind to it, this could be challenged - one couild simply cite Eros over the road!

The slight snag is that land suitable for football is largely being played on already, eg Church Street Edmonton. Not necessarily a problem if you own the land of course, but again the UDP but have the land down as open space....

Question for those of you with techie knowledge

Browsing the net and my Norton Antivirus located a virus <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> (trojan horse) so I logged off straight away, and set up scan for whole computer, but it didn't detect any infection, although it lists it was in temporary internet/content ie.5/blah blah which I delete automatically anyway. What does this mean?
<img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />
Checked registry,no changes in addresses, downloading patch from microsoft,all my security is highest level that I know of- should I do anything else? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

AV software should be able to contain any virus it finds (so long as you keep your pattern files up to date) so what you did probably cleared it off. Don't forget that just deleting your temporary internet files from within Internet Explorer doesn't actually delete them, it just makes them able to be written over (and they don't show up if you look for them in Windows Explorer). You would need something like Clean Disc, CleanDisc, Evidence Eliminator, etc... to get rid of the traces. I have a Win98 machine which doesn't really have enough memory in it so I have to clear things out quite drastically and do a full defrag every now and then just to get it to get going.

In case you meant, "What is a Trojan Horse?", there are several definitions but it is usually an apparently harmless program containing malicious logic that allows the unauthorized collection, falsification, or destruction of data. In other words, it lets someone else screw around with your computer without you knowing they're doing it.

If you are using Win9x/ME, security will never be brilliant because these operating systems are specifically for single machine set ups (even though you can network them) and you as the user will be able to do terrible things to your computer. A much better way is to use Linux or one of the network specific Windows systems (WinNT, Win2000 and, I think, WinXP) where you can set the machine up so that you have to be the systems administrator in order to [****!!****] anything up. This means that if you are logged on just as a user and don't have the sysadmin priveleges, you physically can't do most nasty things that could cause problems. If you are using a Microsoft OS, you are more likely to have problems, even with a "network" system, because most viruses are aimed at MS software (especially using Word/Excel macros).

Hope this helps.

Thanks Cyclops,

Unfortunately I picked this up on my laptop at home, no chance of networking this up. I read up about this particular virus , did as I was told, just the text was vague so I was just querying for extra advice.

I was told it's wise to clear your internet files regularly to keep your system from slowing down-Is that right?

I think you may have got the wrong end of the stick! It doesn't matter what machine you are using, or where, if you are using one of the "NT"-type Microsoft operating systems (NT/2000/XP). You just create a user and, when you want to use the computer you log on as that user. Users shouldn't (by default, I would hope!) be able to do stuff like adding software. If you want to do that, you do it logged on as the administrator (and while you aren't connected to the net). You don't get that level of permissions/file access in Win95/98/ME as these are designed for standalone machines in the home environment. The screens may look similar but the operating systems are different.

I am using Linux as my operating system, which is a network-type system in the same way that, generally, NT is. If I want to add software I have to be logged in as "root", which is the Linux name for the administrator functions. At the moment I am logged in as a user so, because I don't (as a user) have permission to add software, change file access permissions, etc., this is a much safer mode to be in than "root". It doesn't matter that this is running on a standalone machine, not connected to a network.

Yes. That is why I have to do it on my other computer (although I don't connect to the internet on it very often, especially since I got the quicker machine which I am using now). However, as I mentioned before, clearing the temporary internet files from within Internet Explorer doesn't actually delete them it just allows you to overwrite the space.

You should also, every now and then, defrag the drive. This is someting you can find by clicking the [color:"blue"]Start button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter[/color]
This takes ages and is probably best done in Safe Mode, because, if your computer automatically performs scheduled tasks or checks to see if you're connected to the internet so it can look for program updates, this can interrupt the defrag procedure. That sort of thing doesn't happen in Safe Mode (press F8 as your machine is booting up but before the "Windows 9x/ME" start screen and you should get a menu with Safe Mode in it).

I am currently trialling a Win98 program called Power Defrag because I bought a drive which is too big for my computer to recognise, so it uses some software which tricks the computer into being able to see the lot. The problem is that pressing F8, as mentioned above, just does a virus scan on the boot sector instead. Power Defrag emulates safe mode until it has done its bit and then goes back into normal mode. Life can get complicated when you try upgrading! I have also defragged the RAM but that didn't seem to make it any quicker. I think I will have to get some more memory because I do still use the machine, though not so much.

You're quite right Cyclops, I did get the wrong end of the stick! Looks like I've got some work to do...

My computer knowledge is pretty limited- I only really use it for stock records(at work), e-mail and internet.

Done that now, didn't cross my mind to do this before because I like to have everything accessible, but it's a good idea to use seperate user name to surf...

Well I understood most of it sir, don't know much about Linux (alternative to Windows?), pretty happy with my setup as is...

Computer jargon is quite exciting- you get to put in lots of long words and acronyms and nobody understands what you're talking about...(nothing new there then!) <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
