General Car Chat / Massive MOT failure - goodbye Omega?
« on: Today at 01:29:56 »
Broken spring, brake pipe corrosion, sills corroded and wishbone joints knackered to name but a few things! If I could display a JPEG image of the certificate, I would, but I don't know how. I've only done 5,000 miles on those ATP wishbones....waiting for TB to sneer and say "I told you so"!

Ron. :( :( :(

 Sorry, but the lady is far too important for the "Dead Person" fil e.
My beloved Dame Dianna Rigg died today - she whose eyes shot arrows into my heart.

General Discussion Area / Omega in good health, Ron isn't!
« on: 06 September 2020, 19:14:47 »
I've been absent from the forum for ages as I've been more in hospital than out of it, with  deteriorating kidney. I am now being prepared for dialysis - not a good prospect - and will effectively be house/hospital bound.
I started the Omega for the first time since last November (when I broke my hip bone) and I expected it to be reluctant to wake up, even if only to pressurise the fuel line, but amazingly it started immediately, was lumpy for about 5 seconds and ran normally!
Now I am readying it for MOT next week: all fluids sorted, cleaning headlight lenses and only the emissions light to put out.
Wish me luck?

Ron.

General Discussion Area / Another problem!
« on: 17 May 2020, 21:26:22 »
Problems come not in single spies....
Now my combi oven has gone bozwonk, cutting out after 59 seconds (exactly) on any function, grill, convection or microwave.
It's a Sharp R958 - any ideas, gents?

General Discussion Area / Silly IT question?
« on: 17 May 2020, 16:31:23 »
I want to use an ethernet splitter to run two  computers from one feed, but the instructions say no, I can't. Why not? Is there a clash?
I know that I have a spare ethernet output on the router, but at the moment it isn't convenient to run a long cable upstairs to the computers and the wi-fi, as TB says, is total shite lately!

General Discussion Area / Help! What did I do wrong?
« on: 07 February 2020, 11:53:35 »
I must have clicked on something and made my desktop icons disappear and now cannot get them back. I;m on another (old, windows XP) computer typing this as I have also lost MS Office.
Please rescue this soppy sod!

General Discussion Area / Reversing Type 2 diabetes
« on: 12 January 2020, 20:04:09 »
Hi gents.
Those of you afflicted with diabetes might be interested in this:-

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jhv942zcf12gya6/How%20to%20Reverse%20Type%202%20Diabetes%20Naturally.mp4?dl=0

I have asked my diabetes consultant for her opinion and when she has read it she will report back, If she sees no difficulties, I will give it a trial.
I will of course let you know how I get on, if my consultant approves. Conversely, if she disapproves, I will tell you why.

General Discussion Area / I'm back!
« on: 11 December 2019, 16:29:57 »
Hi gents. I have now just returned home,  still immobile and with lots of pain. The days are boring, just shared between lying on my bed and sitting in an armchair - NOT how I want to spend what little time I have left to live!
At least the debates on here provide some diversion, but I m having daily physiotherapy and the reckon it will take another 6months to restore mobility!  :(

General Discussion Area / REASON FOR ABSENCE.....
« on: 18 November 2019, 16:35:01 »
Two weeks ago I fell and broke my hip bone and have been in hospital ever since - bloody painful!
I am virtually immobile and have only just managed to get a Wi-Fi connection, so lots of catching up to do.
I've been brilliantly well looked after, but recovery will take some weeks - walking frame and baby steps!

General Discussion Area / IT help, please.
« on: 02 November 2019, 19:55:54 »
I have a folder for my business letters, which are written as Word documents with JPG extensions. Suddenly the extensions have all changed to DOCX ones - without my permission!
I cannot view them without using FileViewer3, which is tedious.
Is there any way to recover this situation, i.e. returning them to Word files?
Any help gratefully received.  :-*

General Discussion Area / OCR software that actually works?
« on: 23 October 2019, 23:44:11 »
I've tried several, but none seems to be able to handle forms that have areas to fill in and/or edit. My son has a claim form to complete and wants to make it look neat rather than just write in the boxes. Is there a programme, preferably free (think of my pension!) which will do the job effectively?

Ron.
