Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Good news on your appointments Stephen. I hope they can give you some answers and that there may be some treatment options. In my medical forest, I am hoping that my scan doesn't get cancelled with Leeds just going into stricter Coronavirus rules. Same as us so more relevant for social gatherings, p...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Just completed the online survey linked to the Covid test I did for Imperial College. It took about 20 minutes to work through the questions all of which had a choice of radio button answers. I ticked the box at the end to agree to be contacted for more research if required. Also to give permission ...

Re: Seen in the News

As a bit more information emerges about the shooting and death of a police custody sergeant. It would seem that the perpetrator was handcuffed with his hands behind his back. I cannot get my head round how in this position he managed to produce a firearm and shoot the custody sergeant dead and then ...

Re: Back Under Canvas

Yesterday was bob on for emptying the roof box and getting it off the car. Bars have gone upstairs, box is waiting until we have stacked and stored all the other stuff properly. I have kept our can of waterproofing spray out as one of Sally's kagouls needs a treatment.

Well that's fair enough. The Apple problem is documented and seems to be an example of unintended consequences. One thing is for certain it's nothing to do with the site.

Re: Site Anomalies

I just Googled "Issues with Apple Updates" and got this hit, it may be relevant.

Fix for resetting default apps bug

Another result from the same search:

I think that nails the problem with your chosen device and its updates

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

I think the rise in cases is not a product of wearing face masks. Just that folk were encouraged to wear them at the same time that testing increased and therefore the number of cases went up. In my view we were late to the party in the face mask dictate. Most other countries wore them from day 1. B...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

The link is simply wrong so not an issue as such. Try clearing your cache and also try a different browser if you can. No one else has flagged this as an error so it is almost certainly something to do with your platform Maz.

Re: BEWARE! THE BANKS ARE OUT TO GET YOU!

You can't do that now because of Elf and Safety regs. It needs to be the exact right model as well because they changed the shape and fitting on the later marque. I might as well replace it with the LED one and have spare that I will never use, might be able to repurpose it for something. :smile:

Re: Where Have You Just Been?

The embankment where your photo is taken Stanley is merely for access to the tunnel side.. The towpath actually leaves the canal bank at that side and goes over a raised embankment for a couple of hundred yards. Cycled it many times on my bike.
