    Seems to me that government Civil contract procurement, is even worse than MOD military procurement.

    The lunatics have officially taken over the asylum.

  • What they always do Dave: run around like headless chickens, argue for and against several irrelevant points, then have a ‘knee jerk’ moment and come up with something else that fails to please all the people even some of the time.

    This whole Brexit process has exposed our political leaders on all sides as incompetent and subject to an even…[Read more]

    Don’t have a wired mouse handy Ed, so I sent for this HP item:

    My thinking was that

    1 – I really should have a wired mouse available anyway, one of those items that is handy to have in reserve.

    2 – an HP 1000 dpi model at <£6 has to be worth a try.

    Let’s see what happens when SWMBO tries it. 😎😊

    Richard, many thanks. You describe to a ‘T’ what happens to me, “coal mining” fits perfectly! I will push for ENT investigation.

    As for the Typing text problem: I wonder if a wired USB mouse would work to remove the problem?

    Dave, you gave me a clue: the text jumble also only happens on web pages. Opening Open Office Writer and typing, is fine.…[Read more]

  • Oh, I lived somewhere very rough John, actually in the house we bought and sold at a loss to move here. It was mid-terrace NCB estate house: when the pit closed, the community was destroyed. Many of my oldest friends and family members, moved away. The older miners, some living in those house since the late 20’s, were gradually dying off. Many…[Read more]

    Too right Ryan! Some nights I find my best, deepest sleep is from around 4 or 5 am: the rest of the night is broken by my enlarged Prostate. Good job the WC is right next to the bedroom! My missus understands and does not wake me. Strangely, after getting up around 10 or 11 am, I then feel physically exhausted, so slob about in my dressing gown,…[Read more]

  • I am doing OK atm thanks, tomorrow that may change as I visit my insultant Consultant to discover results of multiple scans and tests. I don’t mind the constant 40 mile round trips, think I can drive the A16 blindfold now! (Some drivers appear to be doing that anyway😙) I also continue to have Free Parking, which is great, if only there were more…[Read more]

  • A few surviving Mammoths might have been around then Steve, although the Neolithic Brits loved Mammoth Burgers and slaughtered them for meat, tusks and skin for clothing. Pterodactyls were living in the Late Jurassic, between 164 and 145 Million years ago, way before the distant ancestors of humans arrived. There have been several Pterodactyl…[Read more]

  • Thanks but that was my first move Jukebox.

     

  • Thanks Richard. I doubt that the KB is to blame, but I will check out the Wls mouse.

    How are you? Missus OK?

  • Hi guys

    Looking for advice. SWMBO has a 2½ yo Lenovo B50-80 running Win 7/64/Pro. Using Open Office, when she types, sometimes the text jumps about. As SWMBO does not possess much patience, this is harmful to my ears and Peace of Mind.😘😣

    She uses a Logitech wireless mouse with a small USB transmitter. I have disabled the touch pad and actually…[Read more]

  • I also find it fascinating Dave. Another interesting discovery, was the presence of manufactured stone tools in Ireland and some European locations. The stone came from the Cumbrian Langdale axe industry:

  • I don’t have much to add regarding PPI, there is already so much useful advice given.

    However, this is the name of the company I first contacted, wanted to conduct a “Free” investigation for me by charging 24% of whatever I may receive: Consumer Refund Service. Based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Paperwork is professionally done, but there is loads of…[Read more]

  • I received the forms from this bunch of Northeast shysters John, but did not sign and definitely did not return them: I kept the forms as an example of what not to do.

    Bankruptcy is an awful place to be and I sympathise with you, having once reached a desperate stage when we could have lost the house we once owned, through disability, losing my…[Read more]

  • Yes I have seen that boat Dave. What tickles me about people coming into the land later known as the British Isles after the Ice left, is winding up a certain type of Irish person. Fact: after the ice gradually withdrew, there were no humans of any species in these islands, with the very vague possible exception of certain parts of Southern…[Read more]

  • Of all the pointless, irrelevant, inaccurate, insensible posts you have made here, that takes the prize.

    Federalisation, in your later post? I am one of a large and growing number of British Republicans who believe that an unelected, over paid, over-privileged Royal Family has outlived its usefulness and should be scrapped to make way for a…[Read more]
