Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Have Talk Talk not chased you to send it back, they usually send a prepaid return label etc. It's always best practice to upgrade to the latest specification whether you are going to use the VOIP port or not.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Indeed, I have never liked the word benign, it hides the seriousness of removal if it comes to that. Also, benign or not if it's in the wrong place or gets too big it can still have a huge impact. The fact that it is stable is the key. :good:

Re: Mobile Phones

I once rescued two Amstrad 8512 word processor computers, (the ones that you swapped a typewriter for). Also made Alan Sugar's fortune with an obsolete OS, redundant 3" Hitachi Floppy Drive (actually technically better the 3.25" Sony that won the race for the mass market). Sold with a CP/M...

Looks like we have Little Bo Peep following behind. Looks like some kind of procession before a gala or Church event. I think the class poster belongs to the horse.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

The missile's booster rockets failed and it landed in the sea close to the launch site, according to the Sun, which first reported the malfunction. Interesting that the government is still confident in it's nuclear deterrent and states that it would work in a "real world" situation. :ohno...

To get us back on topic here is a story of Sally's recent woe's with her mobile phone. Wendy will be aware of this as she was also on the very wet walk with Sally at the tail end of last week. Sally's phone was in a fold over case and when retrieved from her pocket at home was wet through. The case ...

Pendle ascent, looks like they went up Ogden Clough rather than the route off Barley Lane or following the beck from the centre of the village. That circular route is a tad longer than the other two.

Just been to the dentist for my 6 month check-up. X-Rays were due and had to have a small repair to a filling which had developed a small hole. Apart from that all OK. My dentist Abid wants to see me in 4 months to check all is still well.

There is a constant need for the regular donors to attend as they provide the backbone of the stock. This is interspersed with occasional appeals f...

Indeed Stanley, no sessions in Barlick since before the pandemic. I have appealed to the service to re-instate after sounding out both venues in town that were previously used. Both are still available. I can't offer anyone a lift either as you have to book your own appointments now so highly unlike...
