10 houses in our Close, all friendly, 6 with old farts like us, another just retired, Whatísapp group brilliant for us. Anyone with a delivery due posts for requests from others. I get priority due wifeís health so often get requests for add ons. For us it all works very well. I am also the NW coordinator. 🇬🇧

Petrol rationing, still got some for the next time. Fortunately we had a garage so I rarely needed them.  8)

You may have missed my earlier post about my difficulty getting out of admin in Win 10 without opening an MS Acct. Which I have no wish to do. Notwithstanding that, I have been particularly cautious in not downloading anything I did not vet first.

Thanks Nige, I can see it in Programs, I just wanted to know how it got there, before I uninstalled it, in case it was a required bit of software.

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. :-\

Phew, thank god for that, Matt Hancock has written off the NHS debt of £13Bn, for one awful moment I thought we taxpayers might have to foot the bill. :y
£13 billion will be a mere drop in the ocean when this is all over, Chris. What do you reckon about the triple lock on my pension?  ;D

As safe as houses... oh wait. :-X

I didnít need to take the exhaust off on my estate. Canít advise on the saloon.  :y

It was the 2.5 diseasal as well, so not much help Iím afraid, other than to confirm that it is Ďkin heavy, and was not an easy job on stands, although James, who did one earlier for me, made it look like a walk in the park.  :-[

I typed a big long reply, but the useless poxy wifi in this place decided it was a great time to disconnect, and lost it as I posted, grrr

So short one.

ISP provide is best "free" one, but tied to ISP, and changing email addresses is a PITA

"Free" like Gmail isn't free, Google look at your mails to build a better profile for their advertising and data selling business.  But as most of us use Android anyway, we obviously clearly don't care about our data and privacy, or the privacy of family or friends (clearly, judging by the number of people here on arsebook)

Low cost paid for services may be of interest to some, usually around £5-15 a year, depending on requirements.

I use mail.com, about $15 per annum, and allows me to change ISP easily. I donít like gmail for the reasons Jaime quoted.

Can you see / tell if the oil filter has been changed ? Not exactly rare for garages not to bother doing it.

When I used to put the car into a garage for servicing .. ie .. before I found this site and all its help .... I always put a dab of the wife's nail varnish on the filter ... so if it wasn't changed it was damned obvious .....  after a very short altercation with the "mechanic" on one occasion, the owner was summoned and from that point onwards I never had a problem ......   :)

I now do the same with the audi as I don't do any work on it due to 1) not understanding these weird diseassal machines 2) old  age and incompetence !!

What? No more exciting Cookís Tours of Swindonís car breakers Nige? What will you do for fun now? ;) ;) ;D
