Thanks for the thought anyway and good luck with the move - not a happy task.

Ron.

Ah yes - not too dear either. I assume that it can be plugged into the PC's USB port and the stand plus lead is to relocatite in case of poor signal?
May I be allowed another question, please: the hard drive is 1TB, divided into two 500GB sectors, Drive C and Drive D. The D rive is called a Data drive and is empty. Can I use that drive for my programmes, etc? It has a much posher version of Photoshop (CS) so I ecxpect to need to store many images.....

Ta very much,
Ron.

Thanks, I will go searching. I do so hate the term "dongle"; it must be a yank term - the septics are SO babyish!
Is there a proper technical term, like Firmware key?

Ron.

Not patronising at all, easy is fine for me!
I opened that link and just as I was reading it, they took me to an advertising page that wanted my name, rqank, number and inside leg measurement!
However, I think you are right, I need something to receive the Google things and I'll try opening it again - or try on Ebay!

General Discussion Area / At last I have Windows 7 on a PC!
« on: Yesterday at 16:44:26 »
Now TB can stop moaning at me, I have left Windows XP behind (almost)!
I have been gifted an Acer AspireX1430 (any good?) and an HP V-M200 thingy with aerials coming out of it. Can I use this to set up an Internet connection wirelessly? The Sky router is downstairs and is connected by cable to this old PC, with the new Acer one in another room, It isn't practical at the moment to cable up the Acer, so Iwant to use it wirelessly. Can I do so with this kit, or do I need something else?
PLEASE keep it simple!  :-[

Speaking of "not actually doing the work", how many researchers does Brewer have helping him find the cars, and Edd to have detailed dismantling guidance for his workshop efforts?

Sounded like a massive PR exercise to me, in an attempt to conceal the reasons that have been mooted on here.  ???

That's the complete opposite to what the viewers want, especially as Brewer can't even do what little he contributes properly!
It would be better if Edd went with him to assess the potential purchases; that way he could reject some of the disasters that Brewer buys.   ::)

Agreed, obviously!
Does he think that we are all fools and that he can get away with his blatant lies in front of a tv audience?
An example that comes readily to mind is with that Mini Moke.
He argued with Edd regarding the white bits on the car, and then very loudly again when Edd changed the seat covers, etc., to white.
In front of his potential buyer, he asked what he thought of the interior colours.
"Fine", said the customer. "I like it"
"yes", replied Brewer,. "I decided on it myself"!  :o :o ::)

Yes, DG, you did - but that's obvious, and carefully rehearsed.
Apparently, some of the "public" are production team members, who also end up with the restored cars afterwards.
That doesn't make Brewer any less of a turd, however!

It's clearly not about what profit they make, as it's just a tv show, but I really do object to the way Brewer assumes seniority over Edd, likening China to his "boy" who will fix any crap that he buys without demur and does very little himself - except to try to take all the glory for himself.
Did I say that I don't like him?

Ron.

Do you mean flushing the block by doing that? The thermostat will be closed on a cold engine, so that wouldn't work. Worth flushing the heater matrix, though.

Far too much like Mr. Toad with his disregard for rhe truth and unjustified self-importance.
Seeing the way he "negotiates" on the programme, he isn't good at his part of the job either, whereas Edd does all the real work.

General Car Chat / Mini Moke on Wheeler Dealers.
« on: 18 July 2018, 21:57:04 »
I've just been watching an old episode of Wheeler Dealers, the one where they "rescued" q Mini Moke.
Apart from tolerating that very annoying mendacious turd, Brewer, it was quite amusin g, with all the carefully scripted ham acting!
My question is, does anyone know the location of the Moke for its (inadviseable) test run in sea water?

Ron.
