Re: 'Sock Puppet'?

The thing is, that it could be entirely legitimate; two people from the same household could have joined on the same day, and would also thus be showing the same IP address, and may be understandably...

Re: Recent Thread Closure

This was once one of the most friendly and helpful forums of which I'm a member, but seems to have been faced with some issues since late last summer/autumn.

I've seen a similar situation on my...

Re: 'Phantom' Phone Call Charge.

That hopefully precludes a bored engineer with a test telephone on nights in the local exchange, which would be much harder to prove, hence my reason for asking the question without alluding to any...

Re: 'Phantom' Phone Call Charge.

Make sure you get it reported to VM asap.
Hard to imagine it happening accidentally as billing systems should be pretty much watertight security wise.
Are you on direct cable, fibre or twisted pair...

Re: Forum Sill Plagued With Gateway Problems

How on earth did a thread on Gateway Time-out problems become diverted into one complaining about censorship??

I really would urge folks to think carefully before they criticise others, including...

Re: Flickr and exif

Just looked at your Baby Ibis photo taken recently, the Show Exif button reveals the exif data, but the normal default view showing camera, lens aperture etc. isn't viewable.
It is on your older...

Re: Flickr and exif

Phil, can you see exif in Flickr on your old photos, and are you using a phone + app or a web browser on a PC/Mac?
If you can see old exif but not recent, is there an option on the uploader to...

Re: Paper from Knotweed

Sorry Jim, not as easy as that unfortunately. Due to the rhizome root structure, the plant can lay dormant for years, and even the smallest bit you've just chopped up can be a viable specimen for...

Re: Ceratiomyxa poroides: A Delicate Rarity

Cheers Harold, I'd already found you over there; I was trying to work out if you had them in an album on the site that I'd failed to locate as I'm not a member over there.

Re: Ceratiomyxa poroides: A Delicate Rarity

I do like these macro fungi/slime mould photos.
Are they in a separate album at Fredmiranda, or do they only appear in individual posts there.
I'm enquiring, both for myself, and aa couple of...

Re: Loose the 'sticky-out-strap-ends'

I think RTFM might be the acronym for this methos.
See "Getting Started" page in most of the Olympus manuals.

Yes, I never did see it at first either; those initial instructions got in the way of...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

The trouble is that it takes a long time to research and come up with a structured line of thought. Is it any wonder that, at the time of the vote, most people, myself included, didn't research as...

Re: 12-100mm Pro, works very well with extension tubes.

I've used the 40-150mm F2.8 with the cheapo auto tubes and that works well too.
I still need to engineer a way of fitting the dual, or circular flash heads to it though; fortunately I also have the...

If it does become necessary, to close the thread, which I can well understand, all I would request, is that it be locked rather than deleted.
That way it will soon drift off the front page and stop...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

There's a lot of links within the links as well; it's a very long read, and I don't claim to have followed them all by any means.
As you're genuinely interested at a philosophical level as well as a...

Don't worry, it's already been considered.
I think I may have mentioned this one (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/let-american-firms-run-hospitals-urges-free-trade-group-5rxxd9tb8) before. :(
