  • Gotcha!! you are correct – on closer inspection – when a bit more awake – that isn’t muck of a bike at all!!😀😀 At least not one I’d like to either ride or park!!

  • Doesn’t work for me either. It just gives a “thumbnail of albums” type view. Eight pictures labelled screenshots, sky, bikes, mountains, skylines, cars, bridges, food.

    Maybe it’s auto-logging you in. Try it from an ‘incognito’ window.

    Congrats on making it to this one!! Have a good one.

  • Well you come across as younger than that, also some of your projects obviously keep the mind young, even if the fingers have trouble keeping up!!

  • Ed, is that 22 + 22 + 22 + 22??? or is that stretching it too far????😀😀😉

    Really glad it was a technical hiccup, rather than a medical one!! Looking forward to his contributions being back on the forum.

  • Happy Birthday, Richard. Hope it doesn’t get lost in the plethora of other distractions you currently oversee.

    Actually, I hope it’s a real birth date and not a forum guess’um…..😀👍

  • Wearing my landlord’s hat, I can see why he may baulk at the cost of the installation. However, if they were mine, I’d look at the overall cost ( as Dave says ), but I would then think about the cost of a fast fibre connection – to serve between three households – wait for Dave’s bill to come in, look at that total cost and apportion it between…[Read more]

  • If it’s W10 causing the problem, the details below might help. I thought it might have been caused by a W10 update as all browsers were affected and more than 1 machine meant they could both (all ) have been affected by a dodgy W10 update.

    Good luck with both of those. Hopefully they will lead to a successful outcome and a better quality of life for all three of you.

    I’ve seen similar supported living and the people involved were superb and the results heartwarming. I hope your daughter finds a situation like that. 🙏

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Cheap 120GB SSD in the forum PC Talk 1 week, 4 days ago

    Being “in the trade” means you have to be that 1 ( or 2 ) steps ahead of the pack that extra month ( or 6 ) ahead of time. At least, that’s what you can tell the Mrs when the buckshee 120Gb SSD that floats her way isn’t enough!!😀😀😉

  • JayCeeDee started the topic Unbelievable!!! in the forum Other Tech 1 week, 4 days ago

    Didn’t know which Forum to put this in, there isn’t one for employment/jobs or similar, so I put it in Other Tech talk.😀

     

    There’s a project in the wind for child protection whereby all the relevant agencies achieve IT inter-connectivity and transparency. Basically for them all to co-ordinate with each other timely and effectively. Obviously…[Read more]

  • I’ve got 2 x i7 base stations up in the loft that are under the same remit. They’re our sons, but he does most of his work on a high end W10 laptop, the latest iPad and an iPhoneXS. His flatmate has a high end VR setup in a spare bedroom as he’s into mixing music for gigs and all sorts of cutting edge stuff that pass over my head, so he has no…[Read more]

    Just been to Aldi’s and they’ve got Felinfoel at £1.29 for a bottle of their ESB.

    It says there’s a fruity aftertaste, with hints if caramel, cherry and toffee apple. It’s a very pleasant, not too heavy, flavourful taste. Definitely one I’ll try again – got three bottles for tasters, I was that confident. I’ve always liked Felinfoel and when I…[Read more]

  • An interesting perspective cropped up in my “car or van” search for a builder friend. HERE. It seems vans can get expensive to insure nowadays – alright the article is from 2014 but I doubt there’s been a downward trend in any insurances since then.

    He’s just starting to get busy and only has an ’04 Ka, so is running out of room when he’s…[Read more]

    Well I tried one sitting in front of the tele after dinner tonight, it was smooth, not un-pleasant, but a bit rich for me, which is strange, considering I spent a lot of my early/middle years drinking a poor man’s Black Velvet – Cream Label/Mackeson and Cider. Followed by a good few middle years on Draught Guinness or real ale. When I’d had…[Read more]

    Tell them they’re breaching their contract and you want out – ask for a PAC number, you don’t have to use it, but you’ll be on to their “leaving” department who have lots of options open to them to induce you to stay.

    Dunkel Fester is lovely. Aldi usually get a load in for Halloween and they usually have loads left so they ship them out cheap. Last year I bought about 40 bottles for £20, the manger wanted shot of them so did me a deal if I took them all. 😁

    Yes, that’s where she was.

    Sensible fellows ( both )!! 👍👍

    The wife was shopping yesterday and saw this…

     

    …I’m anticipating a Newky Brown taste ( disturbingly dark?? ).

    On a side note, I love the labels they’re coming out with. Someone with a sense of humour and design!!
