  • The Humax STB will allow you to do what you ask for, but if you’re hoping for access to more live TV channels from it. you’re likely out of luck.

    The number of channels available to view is down to your aerial, if it can’t get more than the basic channels, then neither will a STB. ( Other than streamed Catch Up ). Check to see what neighbours…[Read more]

  • Steve, I took it to be G’son’s Netflix account with Bob’s PC and tablet as authorised devices.👍

  • I was almost ready to add ” Unless it was a NorVin Black Night” until I finished reading your post to find you’d added the detail there.

    A friend of mine did the same, I seem to recall it had the RoadHolder forks, whether that was standard for the slimline frame, I  know not. That engine went into the frame with the help of a large shoe horn…[Read more]

  • My words from earlier decades were ” You’re only as old as the woman you feel!!” – but even that scale doesn’t allow me to cheat time as she’s just started getting her State Pension – she is one of the WASPI’s – but at 68 later this month I’m still here, and that’s what counts in my book.

     

    As an aside, even the proposed £30k gift won’t…[Read more]

    That’s right, Les, but not far off. I had a 1964 Ducati Daytona 250, as a first bike – I did a lot of learning very quickly on that, in fact most things happened very quickly on it!!! Beautifully engineered bit of kit. I wanted the MachIII Desmo when it came out a few years later  ( late 60’s early 70’s ) – but I was an apprentice at…[Read more]

  • Quote from Wikipedia:-

    The versions worldwide differ slightly: the US single mix included an additional chorus just after the second chorus. The words “it’s in the trees, it’s coming!” heard at the beginning of the track are sampled from the British 1957 horror film Night of the Demon and are mouthed by an actor from the film, Reginald Bec…[Read more]

    Well, you wouldn’t want to be a member of the Billionaire’s Club at the moment, would you????!!!!🙃😋.

    Having said that, though, I always thought Labour were in favour of coddling and supporting Minorities!! 150 in the UK – that’s one hell of a minority!!

  • Cheers for that link- I’ve been meaning to resolve this on the wife’s laptop. It appeared a while ago after an update – asking to be logged into the MS account before continuing, with no visible way round it. There’s no real point as it’s only a FB, email, Solitaire, shopping ( not buying ) machine.

    I’ll hit that next time I’ve got a quiet…[Read more]

    No Worries.👍👍

    My old monitor wasn’t VESA mountable, so I got one of THESE. I’ve replaced the monitor since and now have 2 VESA monitors on a DESKMOUNT.

    That means the old adapter is spare – if it’s any use to you all I want is postage for it. PM me if that’s of any use.

    It’s a bit of a cludge, but it worked well for 9 months or so.

  • You’re not wrong there, Ed. My son went to Brunel for his Computer Science degree back in 2004. His was a 3 year course, with an option of a 4-year course with a year of work experience after year 2 of study. Despite the fact that he was also doing PAT testing and Network cabling, he also learned a whole lot of other stuff, but just as…[Read more]

    A friend said that it seems most people who start off with nothing vote Labour until they have something to lose, when they start to vote Conservative. Something that is currently massively supported by the statements of the Labour front bench and their upcoming Labour Manifesto.

    They’re probably the ‘stars’ of Gogglebox- that’s one programme where, in my case at least, the adverts were counter-productive for the broadcaster!!

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Sky/BBC collaboration. in the forum TV 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Saw this yesterday and have been watching the forum topic – predictably people getting their knickers in a twist that the BBC dares get involved with SKY, the Beeb’s charter and Mission statement??!! along with the usual license fee woes.

    As far as I can see, it’s a collaboration that will mostly be in the background. Nothing earth shattering…[Read more]

    I took a half hour spin around the other ‘builds of the week’ and there were some entertaining and really clever mods for some things. The Range Racer and the S600 hybrid were two examples.

    Isn’t that like paying it forward – the LibDems having already been screwed by the Conservatives??!! Or more akin to  “sloppy seconds”??

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Off with his head! in the forum UK 1 month, 1 week ago

    You’d think after his condemnation ( vilification ) of Russia getting involved in his own troubled election, he’d keep his stupid mouth shut!!! If that is at all possible though…………..

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Off with his head! in the forum UK 1 month, 1 week ago

    The problem becomes, being Boris, is if he wins he will see it as an endorsement for both him and the Conservative Party. That will be because a lot of people will have voted his way, due to it being the lesser of multiple worse evils. If you think he’s bad now, wait until he thinks he’s had the mandate from the people!!

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Off with his head! in the forum UK 1 month, 1 week ago

    Too right!!

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Off with his head! in the forum UK 1 month, 1 week ago

    I think that the story of this election, whilst obviously being dominated by Brexit, will be about voters who would normally be voting for Labour trying to find a palatable alternative. 😩
