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

If you type Aluminum into Wikipedia it instantly directs you to Aluminium without asking. Much the same as typing Grauniad.co.uk into a browser - you get The Guardian ;).

Re: W10 Update Slowed PS CS6 Launch

+1 to Andy. Also, there is a "Fast Startup" option which is best turned off. I find my video driver doesn't always work properly if this is enabled.

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

Mental health problems in the farming community are becoming well known so I'm not sure it's any better in rural communities (like this one) than urban. I do know that my GP is seeing more and more...

Re: Tax Free Purchases from the EU?

Thanks Bill. I don't smoke so there's no danger of me having a lighter with me! I gather DEET is nasty stuff in many respects. We've been recommended to take some though.
Many years ago I bought...

Re: Tax Free Purchases from the EU?

No problem Bill, and thanks for the thumbs-up re: Explore. I've not been with them before but a friend has and also recommends them, and thus far their service has been very good. We're doing the...

Re: Tax Free Purchases from the EU?

The rules will likely be the same as they are for the rest of the world now i.e. anything worth more than £28 (iirc) may attract duty and VAT. If you take kit bought in the UK out of the country be...

Re: A worrying development

I remember those Sonys, yes. I imagine Apple's removal of memory card slots is so they can make money from people having to use iCloud instead. Cynic, moi? :).

Re: When i was a child

Speaking as a reasonably fit 67yo I'm quite glad I didn't die at 65. However I agree about ending my days dribbling in a care home, if I get to that stage I'll start researching euthanasia!

Considering the unholy mess Adobe have made of Adobe Reader over the last few years (imho!) I'm steering clear of their other stuff! I still use Photsop CS4 occasionally but have no intention of...

FF stood for Ferguson Formula (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferguson_Research), the type of 4WD Jensen used.
