A lot of it is in Finish, so Subtitled, very quicly by the way so keep up at the back.

General Discussion Area / Sending a Fax Overseas - Paperless.
« on: 26 April 2018, 16:59:07 »
Need to send a Fax Overseas, about 2 Pages, Dont Ask!, and no, they have PC and WiFi but dont accept Electronic Documents so its  Phone and Fax Machine only.

There used to be all sorts easy ways, email to Fax, WinFax, blah blah, but all seem to be subscription based these days.

Any good ones out there?, Free would be good from the PC or Phone App, I can probably sort out the International Call Rate by going through a VOIP Service although Im not convinced a Fax will work, ie, VOIP quality etc.


General Discussion Area / Win10 Keeps Signing Me out.
« on: 24 April 2018, 16:29:59 »
As above no reason at all, only been doing this since a recent update about a week ago, did a System Restore to earlier, still the same.

Can be busy typing in Word or on the Web etc, then suddenly, logs me out so its not through lack of activity . Sign back in again and it puts me where I left off, so its not a Full User Sign Out or Restart more like a quick Sleep, Boot Timer is telling me theres is No Boot Time Activity only DeskTop Start Time involved when it does this.

The Machine (Lappy) is clean as a whistle, hardly any Start Up Apps, Virus and Malware Free and gets weekly Maintained.

Its driving me Mad, just does it Add Hoc, when it feels like it, Checked all the Power and Sleep settings all now set on None, High Performance on Battery and On Charge.

Out of Ideas now, any thoughts.

A fair few peeps ask on here about improving the WiFi Coverage, so thought this may help someone out for 13.

A Closing Down Sale Item. so reduced to clear, cant vouch for it personally but cheap enough price wise.

ScrewFix, Reduced from 14.99 to 4.99

Ive had these before there good quality spanner set, very good for tight areas and keeping a set in the Glove Box, I actually carry a similar 10 and 13mm in my jacket pocket for Batteries etc  :y

Havent checked TCB or Quidco, you may get some cash back as well.

General Discussion Area / Lost In Space 2018
« on: 17 April 2018, 22:01:25 »
Kind of feel like a Kid again posting this, well, if memory serves the Original Series was on a Friday, late afternoon, cant remember what year but remember I used to rush home from School to watch it. Any way managed to, er, cough, get hold of the first 10 Episodes from the 2018 version, came out last Weekend I believe.  ::)

Watched the first 2 Episodes, cant make my mind up yet, anybody else been or planning to watch it.   :-\

General Discussion Area / WD40 and that Red Tube thingy.
« on: 10 April 2018, 19:42:43 »

Might help someone out with a tired old Lappy, 120GB Solid State Hard Drive, Sata III 2.5" 560mb/s write speed for 25 Notes, wont be around for long though so dont hang about.

Also a Good opportunity to start again with a Fresh OS Install, also 4.2% less via TopCashBack as well

General Car Chat / Astra G - Broke Down, Power Steering Q
« on: 29 March 2018, 20:05:44 »
So picked up a Astra G Van today, coming back from London all is well, popped in BP for some Jungle Juice, come out started fine, but total Loss of Power Steering shortly followed by Batt Light, popped bonnet expecting to see no Aux Belt, nope fine thats spinning all nice and tight.

Had no tools on me, so now thinking Alternator has gone, is the Power Steering Electric Pump?, why would this go straight away if Alt has packed up or is it designed to do this?, ie heavey Current drain?, anyway drove off, using really heavy steering, thinking not going to get back Home on the Battery alone, Heavy Traffic, Coolant Fan Switching on, wipers and its starting to get dark, lights etc, so found somewhere to park and Trained it back.

going back to recover / fix tomorrow, any thoughts, can measure the volts but wont be able to fix Alternator roadside, but a few extra batteies on a quiet Good Friday might see me getting back  :-\.

Not sure if its for Me but might help Someone out.  ;)
