Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

Well, fancy that, the name Díck is in the naughty words filter, I had to misspell it to write Díck Turpin!

Re: UK PAYG mobile providers

Wicksey, switch to their £7 a month plan. £2 a day is daylight robbery, at least D1ck Turpin had the decency to wear a mask. https://www.virginmedia.com/mobile/sim-only/pay-monthly-sim?contractDuration=12&tariffID=1509710961 I ditched Virgin a while back. I use 1pmobile which is 1p a minute or 1...

Re: blocked windscreen washer jets

Here's what not to do.
Filling the screen wash reservoir from a watering can contaminated with algae. The algae continues growing in the pipework.
Never use plain water. Always use screen-wash from the bottle. Algae was not too difficult to eradicate but better if it had not got in to start with!

Re: Windows 10 1909

I'm currently on 1903. It's always amused me that a Windows update about every 3 weeks puts my computer out of action for 30 minutes.
Yet my Android phone has an update about every 4 months and takes 10 minutes. I reckon Android wins.

Re: Cyclists

Whether a cyclist, motor-cyclist, car or lorry driver, we all have to drive according to the conditions at the time, whether that is the weather, the surface, a tractor, or a cyclist making slow progress uphill on a blind bend. Of course, cyclists should not ignore stop signs or red lights. Remember...

When something is free on the Internet, you and I are the product!
Whatsapp must have a huge linked database of telephone numbers and people links all around the world. Knowledge is power.

Re: New RCD fitted keeps tripping

It's often damp somewhere which causes tripping out. Maybe in a socket, but sometimes in an appliance, like a dishwasher, washing machine etc. Darned annoying, I know, good luck, keep at it you'll find it.

Re: IPTV disappearing

If you knew the sort of people who are cracking the code to enable you to use these TV channels, you wouldn't bother. They are criminals of the same type who write ransomware, bots to send spam emails from websites, and hackers who will gladly use your details to make money for themselves. If you do...

Re: Alert Cops

Do they want your location in degrees minutes and seconds, (e.g. 37 degrees 20 mins 3 secs North) or in degrees and decimal degrees (example 37.3333 degrees N) as many satnavs use?

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

Windoze really do need to work out why customers are having to have so much downtime installing these updates. As Sid says other operating systems can be updated in minutes, why can't Microsoft's?

Re: Windows 10 - 1903

The new version of windows does not have "homegroup" any more. They have changed the way to share files on a network. Another problem to create a work around.

Windows 10 - 1903

Just did this very major OS update and it took over 2.5 hours on my fairly rapid Acer Aspire laptop.
All my settings reset to Windows defaults as if they know best! Just about set up back how I want it now.

It told me it had to be done, as support for W10 April 2018 version will end in November.

Re: Snake on Bougainvillea

It's a whip snake, 100%. I studied snakes all the years I was in Spain. Never saw an adder as they are not present in Spain.
Sometimes people think viperine snakes, which love water, are adders, but they are certainly not.

I have done it and documented it on my website. It's from 2015, but the procedure is still the same.

Re: Does the team think

Could be just dry conditions. However,as it is happening to several bushes/trees in proximity it is likely to be a disease.
Maybe root crown rot?

Re: International Driving Licence

The fact you have to have your proper licence with you to validate the IDP just shows what a pointless rip-off it really is.
