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

The walled garden is one problem but there are others. Apart from the lack of Ethernet, USB and headphone sockets on the newer models (yes, you can buy Apple's expensive adaptors) there is no mobile...

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

I disagree. Windows 10 is a sound OS once you get your head around it, and is much faster than previous iterations. It is also available for all to run on whatever hardware they choose.

I agree...

Re: Want to shoot film but think there's not much choice? ...

No. Transparency films have a dynamic range similar to digital sensors, but negative films have a much wider dynamic range - hence why some simple film cameras have no exposure meter and only one...

Re: Latest Scam

It might be an idea to get in touch with the Water Board who will have responsibility for such things.

Re: Latest Scam

Some of us never think inside the box, or have difficulty doing so. That is why I hate meetings where the chairperson insists that we follow the set agenda. Answers are often found a long way outside...

Re: Want to shoot film but think there's not much choice? ...

Fair competition is usually a good thing, and in this case I believe digital has forced the film manufacturers to up their game considerably compared with some of the crap that we were sold in the...

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

I can empathise with your comments about Sys Admin! :D

To be fair, Windows has become much slimmer and fitter in recent years, with W10 being extremely fast and agile. 'Streamlined like a...

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

Let me clear up two matters here.

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

You need an SSD. Virtual memory is written to and read from the hard disk, which takes a long time if you have a spinning disk. An SSD will speed up that process 100 fold for very little cost....

Re: Age-Related Difficulties

I worked for a large corporate that did just that, and it was a recipe for waste and profligacy. We all worked for the same company but all too often I heard people say 'oh that's OK; XXXX Division...

Yes, I forgot to mention that system, which seems such a bizarre way of setting budgets in government departments. Who on earth dreamt up that I idea I wonder?
