Re: Clearing RAM app.............

I donít think we can thank MS for Windows being better with W10, I think itís more down to the hardware itís running on. Decent spec machines have much more oomph to run the O/S.

Re: Clearing RAM app.............

Have to say, I’ve never noticed any such issues since changing to a Mac many years ago.
Machines rarely even get turned off unless we’re going away or there is an update required.

Re: It's a strange world

I always try to park next to newer cars than mine, ideally at one end of a line to reduce the risk by 50%. Given up parking in the middle of an empty expanse of car park because that just means when...

Re: Age-Related Difficulties

Exactly this used to happen in the District Council where I worked. There were several of the finance team whose sole job was to deal with internal recharging.

Re: MyOlympus updated terms of use

I don’t think I’ve ever read any of them, agreed to hundreds, read none. Utterly pointless, especially the ones where if you don’t agree you’re thrown out of whatever it is your supposed to be...

Yep, this!
Same thing, our lot (procurement dept) entered into a contract with some shysters and twas deemed cheaper to buy office stationery in huge boxes, so 10,000 elastic bands in one box....

Re: Age-Related Difficulties

I have no idea, but presumably a third party private company making good money (profit) doing just what the NHS should be doing.

Re: Age-Related Difficulties

I’m not convinced NHS procurement is up to the job, certainly if it’s like local government it isn’t. Too many people with no idea of what stuff can be bought for. Too set in their ways buying from a...

Re: A dog is for life, not just for Brexit.

Hell of a cost given itís a known problem - mines barely been used and itís done it. Iíve written it off, but might gamble the £157. Sadly Iíd rather put a hammer to it.

Re: In praise of...............

But you don’t buy reading glasses from Specsavers surely? You get the free prescription and toddle off to Superdrug or wherever and pick the ones for £2.99 off the turny-round rack.
