    We talk about cigarettes and drink as drugs – true – BUT HMG make tax revenues out of those mugs!!

    Knives – when I worked at Hawker Siddeley Aviation, Woodford  many years ago – one of the sharpest knives I ever came across was a high speed steel hacksaw blade which most ‘wiremen’ used to cut back and trim wires prior to arranging into a cable…[Read more]

    No I think the drugs war was lost from Day 1.

    As much as it goes against the grain we do need to look upon the problem as a medical & social problem, the NHS simply does not gave the time or the resources to deal with it on the front line – unfortunately by the time they get to deal with it the problem has escalated enormously and so has the…[Read more]

    And yet another poor bloody PC dies today – just for doing his job.  RIP.

    ” …. Oh, in real life you would not have time to read any of this before you need to act….” – never a truer word spoken.

    Many years ago as a ‘get up and go’ young bobby I remember of a staff appraisal my Chief Superintendent asking me what I would do in the even that an airliner crashed locally – referring to my ‘wanting to go and deal with…[Read more]

    EdP I do take the point you make but on many occasions such information is not always passed onto the front line police and they attend ‘in ignorance’ to face whatever is there and they have to deal with it.

    One can hardly say that your area has the MH expert you mention when this is only 1 car and that the occupants work an 8 – 10 hour shift -…[Read more]

    EdP

    “…..While I agree no-one has stated that the tasering was due to inexperience, the officer concerned may have taken a totally different approach if he/she had known the full background of the individual in question, it may also have resulted in sending a team that included a mental health specialist (this is now standard practice in my area…[Read more]

    Lot to be said for the GAMI principle – Get A Man In – if you can find a trustworthy one that is.

    Dave – I agree but there is an old adage that ‘when you are up to your neck in alligators, it’s easy to forget that the goal was to drain the swamp’.

    What is the alternative – do the American police forces have it right????

    Whilst anything can go wrong at any time – we have to accept that as a fact of life – we have car accidents – should we…[Read more]

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic Time for Tasers? in the forum UK 1 week, 2 days ago

    I’m so impressed that some here think that it is ONLY the police who will try to cover their own butt end when the excreta hits the air conditioner – of course it NEVER EVER happens in any other job??  In extreme emergencies you will easily recognise the police – they are the ones running to the incident when YOU are running in the opposite…[Read more]

    Have a god holiday.

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic AOHell in the forum PC Talk 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Yes all OK now, seems to have been a problem the AOL end thankfully!!

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic AOHell in the forum PC Talk 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    There is a problem with AOL at the moment – my wife can’t get onto her account either off her own PC.

    Thanks Dave will try your suggestion but it seems possibly that AOL has a problem.

    Ta,  Dave

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic AOHell in the forum PC Talk 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Seems that I can get into AOL but stymied on my emails accounts.

  • dwynnehugh started the topic AOHell in the forum PC Talk 2 weeks, 4 days ago

    Been a busy day and was about to do some catch up work on AOL when I received the dreaded ERROR 1 message, I have tried the suggested –

    tools – Internet options – security tab > Internet zone – and Enable Protected mode is ticked > Trusted sites – enable protected mode is ticked.

    Have restarted my PC and still get the same error code in AOL and…[Read more]

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic column width in the forum Software Talk 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    Hi, Not really certain what you mean – you can increase the column width in both LO and Excel simply by placing the mouse pointer on the join between two columns and then move the desired column width to the R or to the L as necessary.

    I am assuming that this is not quite what you are after but having looked at both s/sheets I cannot find…[Read more]

  • I think that before you start a ‘home business’ you need to consider exactly what you intend to do and how much time you will be involved with it. I am currently 70 years of age have my OAP and Police Pensions so in very many ways and compared to others, I am extremely fortunate – that said though we did pay 11.75% ‘superan’ towards the final…[Read more]

  • Hi Tip,

    I run a small business (private investigation and process serving) from my H/A – I started off with a bog standard PC (not a lover of l/top k/boards), made my own stationery, business cards etc. etc.  A spreadsheet that allows me to calculate travelling and working times, tel call costs and disbursements – the relevant details can then…[Read more]

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic What voltage? in the forum Other Tech 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Hi Bob,

    Don’t think there is – it’s a Garmin matter.   I started off with Tom Tom and then went to Garmin – I had 2 Garmin jobbies in succession (about £130 odd apiece) and they both did the same exact thing.  Halfords replaced both and eventually they offered an upgrade and I now have a 7″ model, it’s really is v good and beats Tom Tom hands dow…[Read more]

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic What voltage? in the forum Other Tech 3 weeks ago

    Thanks to you all, it seems that the chargers supplied with sat navs are possibly not that stable – I will be buying one of those shown on some replies here.

    Thanks one and all,  Dave.

  • dwynnehugh replied to the topic What voltage? in the forum Other Tech 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    OK and many thanks folks.  I would think that the Garmin supplied charger would give out 5v from the 12v car lighter supply (I have not actually been able to put a voltmeter across the output – far too small.

    My Garmin is a 7″ jobbie, brilliant screen but even Garmion say it will only last on battery about 1 hour, but even when fed off the…[Read more]
