  1. Kirk Douglas was one of the last Hollywood golden age actors died yesterday at home here is a news link https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/kirk-douglas-dies-spartacus-670526
  2. It's been forever for me too but if WonderFox dose not do the job try DVDFab 11
  3. Yes and evey time the is a petition to scrap the television licence fee it gets vandalised so going down this route is no good What we need is a referendum on this "Keep television licence" or "Scrap television licence" of course not everybody is into democracy.
  4. A1W I lost my DAD in Jan 2017 and this plus other things made me turn to drink and for 6 to 8 months I hit the alcohol hard. What I'm trying to say is the grief of losing a loved one can cloud your mind and judgement and time is the best healer mate just think about this mate.
  5. If your going to do this (And I think you have made your mind up do hope you change it) I was going to suggest you do what you have put in your 2nd post plus if it were me I'd gut the bathroom and kitchen I'd do sinks the lot and dependending on the type of property your in even flooding it (If is will not affect your neighbors) the plan is to cost the Housing Assocation as much as possible try and get it to £6.5k plus what ever the security deposit was and remember to cancel any insurance you have on the property (As they will try to claim on it) And if you feel like it buy some spray paint (red is best) and spray her name from the Housing Assocation in big letters on every wall in the property.
  6. Macs my email is a gmail on here but Jamer did have to do something for it to work.

  8. Sorry about late reply only come here mostly weekends. that BUFFALO LinkStation you have is realy only good for backups and as a bit torrent downloader to get the full use out of it you need to setup a ddns or get a static IP (My 1st nas was a LG one drive and my 2nd was a Dlink two drive) and i had to do this for them to work My 3rd nas the synology is a different breed of nas you have your user name and pass but then you also have an account for all the users of the nas (you still have full control of it) Has your BUFFALO LinkStation got samba file support as I may be of help for setting up linking to videos on it for you i will have a read up on it too Dave
  9. I'd say a NAS is what your looking for and the best bit is you can Spread the Cost out by getting a NAS unit and putting any old HDD in it to get you going then at a later date upgrade that drive for real nas drives. If you go down this road I'd say get a 2bay unit and say away from the single bay units. I use a synology NAS but the are ones by qnap / Drobo but stay away from ones like Western Digital / Netgear / Seagate they lock them down too much. You can get a Synology DS218j 2 Bay Desktop NAS Enclosure for about £150 + any old HDD for the time being Then at a later date get a nas hard drive if your going for 4TB or less get a wd red if it's 4TB or more then go for a ironwolf ( you will need to get the same drive again at a even later date so bear this in mind ) Say you got the DS218j for £150 then got a 2TB WD Red for £70 ( you can get a 4TB ironwolf for £105 ) Then at a even later date you get the 2nd 2TB WD Red for RAID this is how to setup the nas so it see's the two drives as one and will make an extra backup of your DATA The overall cost is £150 + 2x£70 = £290 daveb47 if you do go down the NAS road I will be happy to help get you get started on things like the user interface and software. here is a youtube video so you will have an idea about what you will be getting into if you do get one. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oR208STagkw
  10. Use gmail But you only need one account. say the one you set up is all1@gmail.com you don't use this as it's the main one what you do is use the + trick ie all1+twitter@gmail.com all1+twitter1@gmail.com all1+twitter2@gmail.com all1+twitter3@gmail.com Your inbox at all1@gmail.com will get all the emails from this. The are some sites that are still running older email software and the + trick will not work but i'd say 80% of the time it's good.
  11. 20 years go by so fast. I remember the old day's when the pad got shutdown reopend got shutdown and reopend again. how many times did that happen (I think it was 5 or 6 it defo felt like it)
  12. I was looking into this some years ago and the cost was to high. So I went on BT FTTC @ 55/10 (55mb down / 10mb up) If your going after real FTTP the upload and download speed are the same 100mb/100mb 0r 1gb/1gb and anywhere in between. You don't need faster then 1gb as most of the internet delivery protocols are not that fast (older versions of firefox max out at 300mb when you download over it) this was the one i was looking at. https://www.hyperoptic.com/

    The battery on my machbox size one is 8 minutes and 15 minutes to charge it up. I'd say the bigger the better and if i ever get a 2nd drone it will have propellers the same size or bigger then a CD When I put the red propellers on my machbox size Drone it was better to fly. The black propellers that come on the Drone were 2.5cm the red ones that were in the box but needed me to fit them were 3cm

    Drive problem

    Is this the OS drive or a 2nd drive in the pc or is it on usb If it's the first it's going to be a hard to fix if it's the 2nd or 3rd get a free app called partition wizard. https://www.partitionwizard.com/ Install to windows run it and see if the drive shows up on this and post back what it say's if this works for you.

    I have a Micro Drone 4" big and it's not that easy to fly "can not get it to hover on the spot" but I had a go on my mates 20" Drone and that one was a bit easier to fly So I'm going on the assumption the bigger the Drone the more stability you get in the air.
