I have three Kingston SD. Card adapters with SD(?) cards in them from my Spitfire flight. Can anyone advise what I need to connect them to my Samsung TV?

My daughter very generously treated me to a Spitfire flight for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I had a fabulous trip in MJ627 from Biggin Hill, coincidentally where I first went for aircrew selection, longer ago than I care to remember. The hour long trip took us round several of the old Battle of Britain airfields, and also along the coast past the white cliffs. I persuaded the pilot to do a few aeros including victory rolls, he didn't take much persuading!
I was able to fly the Spit for some minutes and had a wonderful day out. The experience included a full tour of the Heritage Hangar where they build, maintain and display Spitfire, Hurricane, and Messerschmitt aircraft, shown in a programme series on More4. This was also a trip down memory lane, as my qualifying exam as an engine fitter, included doing the valve and ignition timing on a Merlin engine, albeit on a Lanc.
Interestingly, I last saw MJ627 several years ago doing a display at East Kirkby (also home to a Lanc which they hope to get airworthy), flown by ex BBMF pilot (of 24 years at  BBMF!) S/L Paul Day. I approached him as he dismounted in the hangar afterwards to congratulate him on the display, to which he said" You're not the police are you?" No doubt as the display was, shall we say, perhaps slightly unconventional, but exhilarating.
A quote attributed to Paul Day was: 'A Lancaster is a waste of four good Merlins'.

General Car Chat / Brake pads
« on: 29 May 2021, 12:59:07 »
Recommendations please for good quality pads for my Mondeo. Last service they were 5mm so although only a few hundred miles since I’d prefer to change them before the stealer does the service. I prefer softer pads to ‘high speed’ ones, as my hooning days are over. :y

Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday & the priest almost fell down when he saw him. He'd never been to church in his life. 

After Mass, the priest caught up with him & said, "Murphy, I am so glad ya decided to come to Mass. What made ya come?"

Murphy said, "I got to be honest with you Father, a while back, I misplaced me hat and I really, really love that hat.

I know that McGlynn had a hat just like mine and I knew he came to church every Sunday.

I also knew that he had to take off his hat during Mass and figured he would leave it in the back of church.

So, I was going to leave after Communion and steal McGlynn's hat.”

The priest was not pleased, but noticed that Murphy did not have the hat.

"Well, Murphy, I notice that ya didn't steal McGlynn's hat after all  What changed your mind?"

Murphy replied, "Well, after I heard your sermon on the 10 Commandments, I decided that I didn't need to steal Mc Glynn's hat."

With a tear in his eye the priest gave Murphy a big smile & said, "After I talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Steal' ya decided ya would rather do without your hat than burn in Hell?"

Murphy slowly shook his head. "No, Father, after ya talked about 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' I remembered where I left me hat."

General Discussion Area / Laptop query 2
« on: 10 March 2021, 16:56:13 »
I would like to print from my M1 Apple MacBook running Big Sur, using my HP 1512 printer connected to my Windows 10 PC with both computers on the same network. Google suggests that I can do this, but I have been unable to do so due to my technical incompetence.
I can see the printer in the laptop preferences, but it says "Not responding" when I try to print.
Can anyone explain in simple terms what I need to do to fix this?
I am unwilling to plug the printer into the laptop due to the physical constraints of where it is used.

I decided to replace my 15 year old Acer 5220 very slow laptop, with one of these, and it should be possible to copy files from my Win 10 PC using the Migration Assistant or Ethernet cable. With the latter, neither one apparently sees the other despite sounding as though they do. With the MA, having done what seemed to be required, switch off anti-virus and carry out chkdsk, the MA starts OK on both but freezes almost immediately and sticks. I have also tried USB to USB C connection with no luck. I think I can copy files from Windows to Mac via the cloud, but not sure how. Can anyone help?

A neighbour due in for elective surgery had to first have a test. A few days later she was admitted and assumed the test was clear. A week after she left hospital, and 2 weeks after the test, she had a call from them. “We’re pleased to tell you that your test is negative.”
I feel so much more confident now.  :-X
