  • Well, I’l be a monkey’s uncle.

     

    That’ll put hairs on your chest.

    Are they temporary, for the duration of the event, see my comment from another topic, before seeing this.

    👍😀

    Yes, that’s very noticeable.😋

    The problem only arises because there are various types of that forum – face to face and the written word. The former has the added benefit of interpretation via body language, tone, even facial expression. The latter is totally devoid of those and even a missing/inaccurate punctuation mark can lead to…[Read more]

    Your comments may well be off the cuff, but they come from both a perspective and an origin that is hard wired into your DNA. Hence your love of debate. Dare I say that that is the cause for people’s strong ( adverse ) reactions to your posts that then go on to upset you.
    You grab a statistic or a concept or a poll and go on to analyse it in a way…[Read more]

    Tongue in cheek or not when you see the below as your opening statement :-

    What do you mean it doesn’t sound as good on the job description front?  

    and you follow it with your statement of feelings :-

    The evidence is quite the reverse. 

    it’s difficult to see which way to take it. Had that been from a less verbose person I could have seen…[Read more]

    Those last three probably reflect the local population overview from the last couple of decades.

    It meant that the ‘tarted up’ description of Professional Rogues’ was less descriptive or accurate than “Liars, cheats and con-artists” – what did you think I meant??

    Maybe I should have put it into the ‘Joke’ section, in case you mis-interpreted it as political comment!!

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 3 days, 17 hours ago

    I think that the latest word to come out of Parliament is quite appropriate – prorogue – that’s just  what they are, a bunch of professional rogues!!

    If anything, it goes a bit soft on them, but then “Liars, cheats and con-artists” just doesn’t sound so good on the job description front, even though it’s more accurate!!

  • My son just left a poker evening with his firm and the boss is a bit serious about the game. True or not, I don’t know, but he said his wedding vows went a bit like this:-

    It all starts with two hearts and a diamond, but ends up needing a club and a spade!!

    I liked that anyway!!😂😋

    A couple of the jokes cracked me up.

    (Seaside town ) …is a lot like Vegas – you can get sex for chips!!!

    Went on a blind date, the girl was stunning, but looked about 14. I cleared off, after all I was a TV entertainer from the 70’s!!!

    He also had a few updates of the Insurance claims forms… can’t remember them, but they were good too.

    Well, it was a great concert – Jasper was in fine form doing two thirty minute stints and Bev was top notch!! They did a couple of 45 minute sessions that included everything from Long John Baldry to a Quo medley via some Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis ,Little Richard, Righteous Brothers and many others with an excellent female vocalist – Suzi Dian -…[Read more]

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic New CPU time in the forum PC Talk 1 week ago

    The comparisons show you’ll notice a big difference between those CPU’s.

    See HERE and HERE.

    It’s the same CPU as I’ve got here and I moved from a G3 series CPU. It showed. They’re both the same TDP ( power consumption ) so your existing cooler will suffice.

    At £34 I’d go for it!!

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Moving to W10 at last.. in the forum Windows Talk 1 week ago

    If you haven’t got one already, it may be time to introduce an SSD into the mix. My system is about the same age as yours and when I loaded the OS onto an SSD and used my old disc as just a data drive I saw a big speed difference and it just felt quicker and slicker.

    Ignore me if you’ve already done that!!😀😋

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Everly Brothers Tribute. in the forum Music 1 week, 1 day ago

    Would that be our Cilla ?   or Cliff?? ( Google was my friend!!) Also from the big G, Roy started out with Gerry Levene & the Avengers then Mike Sheridan & the Nightriders.

    Bev Bevan turned pro with Denny ( Laine ) and the Diplomats before Denny left to form the Moody Blues and Bev split to join the Move.

    Bev later played with Black Sabbath a…[Read more]

    I’m off tomorrow night with the missus to go and see Jasper Carrott’s Stand Up and Rock at the Margate Winter Gardens. Been there a couple of times before for dinner shows and the like, but not for an act.

    He’s supported on the tours by the Bev Bevan band which hits my music sweet spot from his days with The Move and ELO along with Geoff Turton…[Read more]

  • When I first moved from W7 – W10 I couldn’t get my head around it either. It was when I twigged that it can still use programmes in a PC fashion, but seems designed to integrate more smoothly with apps. Mine is currently split down the middle regarding programmes/apps, but more and more apps are going on there than programmes.

    I now think of W10…[Read more]

    I’d just been watching our recording of today’s Politics Live and was quoting their numbers.

    BoJo has been keeping his head down while Trump is in play – I reckon his head will appear over the parapet either on the weekend Political shows or he’ll be preparing for a big presentation come Monday.

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 1 week, 4 days ago

    While half of the Conservative MP’s have not stated who they are behind, the real pattern will only emerge on Monday when the deadline to declare runs out with all those thinking about going for the top job having to make their mind up along with the new rules providing the optimists with a touch of clarity!!

     

  • Similar thing happened to me yesterday morning. I was at the hospital with a friend, and while she was being seen, thought I’d check on the forum using my phone.

    I had a similar thing to Bob happen, but I used LastPass to access the site. What I actually accessed was a WordPress page that was offering me background theme options. I backed right…[Read more]

  • JayCeeDee replied to the topic Electrical Earthing in the forum Electrics 1 week, 6 days ago

    HERE is a quick explanation about that.

    As Ed says, it might be quicker and easier to get a sparks in. It might just be the socket itself, but even if you swapped it out, you’d need a tester to see if that had solved the problem or not!!
