General Discussion Area / Google
« on: 26 June 2020, 16:46:46 »
Is there another decent search engine than Google? No matter what I do it insists on offering US sites or items priced in $. I have tried the fixes suggested and using the - exclude option with no luck.

Under duress, I recently upgraded to Win 10, and, unlike Win 7, it will not accept my HP 1510 printer as default. I have spent untold hours chasing down suggestions from Google to no avail. Can any of the IT experts here tell me how to fix this infuriating fault. >:( >:( >:(

General Discussion Area / Best site to post reviews
« on: 16 June 2020, 07:49:21 »
I had a Bosch glass topped gas hob fitted last year. I have now had two replacement glass tops fitted due to cracks and scratches appearing within days of fitment. Bosch replaced them each time, but interestingly not under warranty but ‘goodwill’, suggesting that they don’t want to admit fault. They have inspected the latest one and have now refused to replace it again, blaming ‘misuse’.
We are not in the habit of trashing our household equipment, and clearly these hobs are not fit for purpose. I can’t be bothered to pursue this through Trading Standards or WHY, but I would like to post a negative review to warn others, as these hobs are marketed under various names. Apart from an Amazon review, where else is it worth posting?

‘Report to moderator’ link missing.  :-\ :-\ :-\
But only on the spam entry.

General Discussion Area / Apple charging cables

Can anyone recommend good quality pattern Apple usb phone charging cables? I bought two recently, and although they appear sturdy, both need care to ensure good contact in the phone slot.  :-\

General Discussion Area / Any bird experts?

I have a small colony of the beautiful Goldfinches who visit my feeders daily. Yesterday One of this years fledglings fed another fledgling while on a feeder. I have seen Martins do this but was not aware that other birds did also. Does anyone have knowledge of this?

General Discussion Area / VE Day
« on: 07 May 2020, 10:41:15 »
My sister and I were in front, and to the left as you look, of Buck house to see the Royal family and Winston come out on the balcony to acknowledge the cheering crowds. Although only 9, it made a big impression on me. A lovely family friend took us, and lifted us on to a pillar of some sort so that we could see. Very impressive even at that age. :y

General Discussion Area / Stardock
« on: 10 April 2020, 14:57:35 »
Can anyone tell me howStardock got in to my PCis? It has arrived on my Win 10 PC without me consciously downloading it. It keeps reminding me to download Starddock 10, which is something to do with Windows. I am not happy when programs arrive unexpectedly. I downloaded an updated version of Softmaker Office recently to get the better word processor, but there was no mention of Stardock. :-\

General Discussion Area / Gold Cup

Jockeys are only allowed to whip the horse 9 times in National Hunt rules????
Presumably that is 9 times per second.
Just watched the Gold Cup and at least 2 or 3 of them used it far more times.  >:( >:( >:(

No.1 son has just bought one at auction, ‘09, FSH, 68k to replace his dead Focus. Other than replacing belt/water pump/tensioner, what else should we expect needs attention?

Just cancelled it. Seems MBS is likely to want to see my holiday pics. :-X

General Discussion Area / Highway Code rule 243
« on: 22 January 2020, 16:01:06 »
...states, amongst others : Do not park opposite, or within 10 meters (32') of, a junction.
Where is the 10 meters measured from, the centre or edge of the adjoining roadway? :-\
I have asked a Highways Engineer, who was uncertain. So perhaps I am being optimistic asking here.

General Discussion Area / WiFi extension.
« on: 19 January 2020, 20:38:02 »
What is the best (ie cheapest ::)) way of improving the WiFi in my lounge, the router is about 20’ away with two brick walls in between?

General Discussion Area / Main Dealers
« on: 11 January 2020, 13:36:01 »
What is with these guys? I have been visiting a few recently to investigate e-cars (or lack of in most cases). The only ones where I have found a parking space is invariably at the luxury brand end of the market. Two I have had to drive away from and phoned later to protest, only to get a metaphorical shrug over the phone. They just cannot resist filling all their spaces with excess stock, thus losing many CAR driving potential customers. ??? ??? ???

PS Yes I do know what e-cars are available, but sometimes it requires a visit to discuss them.
