  1. Could not agree more Dave, I went away a while ago for some alone time with a new fresh instal of 10, even when you converted everything to make it look like 7 it still took ages to load (M.2 drive) and just seems slow compared to 7, if i was going to hang around i for sure would be looking at the move to the big bird Might be time to look at it Dave?
  2. You have found another way they are shafting your choice, i know alot of MB manf dont give drivers for 7 so i know about that didn't know about cpu before you bin it or return it, chck if there is a workaround on google there maybe a way round it but i fear it's a return or ebay job
  3. Wot an old fu*ker, i thought i was over the hill at 50 something. well here hoping for another 10 (mind you 10 more years of Boris i pity you,) what a car crash of a press internview today was 🚔 All1
  4. Perfect Gazza first one done the trick All1
  5. I can find loads of website that turn text into ascii-art but i want to find a website that turns a waving hadd goodbye into ascii-art so something like this
  6. Like most things you get what you pay for Jamer, buy a £5k or a £250K car the ones i'm buying are cheapo copies if the good ones, so small one is £50 (E58) and the bigger one is £100 (E511S) main difference is 1080 camera on the big one, longer flying time and moveable camera while in flight, IMO they are good enough to work out if you want to spend big bucks not doubt DJI etc and the dogs balls, flying time/camera quality/rane all are much better on DJI etc but your pay your money and take your choice, my advice spend £100 see if you like it if you do spend as much as you like i have seen them for sale for £10k but these are the pro stuff you can earn money from but i think you need to take a bigger test for these big ones. All1
  7. Just seen mavric mini for £400 seems a good deal to me
  8. I know DJ but were talking big £££ for them and i'm a tight arse, so bought a clone for £100 i also have a smaller one coming under 250g which gives me something to play with before the E511S turns up All1
  9. Well had my drone turn up on Sat and was looking forward to having a play only to find out i had been sent a second hand unit so it's going straight back to France, i think i will buy from UK seller next time
  10. OK thanks it was worth a try i done some digging on play and it was hit and miss for the E511S I will have a nose again and check out youtube and see what they are using, tried to today to get permission to fly on the thames today as city airport is shut, should give some decent footage if it happens. All1
  11. Gazza, Can i ask you to pick your son's brain for suggestion for an app that works on android, i have E511S coming and a smaller E58 All1
  12. That's intresting i thought you had to gain access from the top and that is what was causing me to look at a pro fixing it, i know the springs are only a few quid so i might go back in later and have a nose and buy the springs online thanks for the link Cobra
  13. Well for the drone i bought you need the licence as it's just under 300g, i will only need it for one or 2 days, IF i don't smash it in those 2 days you can have it for nothing Dave if your still of the A13 i can drop it down to you however it all depends on lockdown, i need to keep myself locked up for a lot of the time but as soon as we get the all clear hopefully 3-6 weeks than i will need 2 weeks to do stuff than the drone is yours so long as i do't kill it 🙂
  14. Ended up buying myself a EACHINE E511S
  15. Thanks for the info Gazza (or your son) took 3 goes but go there in the end, now just need to find a suitable drone, mind you i think it said i could not fly with 150m of a building, looks like i won't be flying it anywhere in London, mind you could be fun up and down the river All1
  16. Well just signed up and took the test and got 15 out of 20 and a pass is 16 so just missed out and didn't even read the code before i took it so i'll take a nose at that this afternoon, and pay my cash, just saves any grief from plod, Thanks for the info Gazza All1
  17. Yea when i looked at them ages ago you needed to bolt one on but looking on ebay they come with 720p ad a min which is handy, saw a great one go yesterday for about £180 had an extended range of 1500 meters, but i didnt bid as no idea if it would be any good for my needs, so will be doing some reading this week on them and hopefully buy end of the week and sit indoors with it for another month b4 i can get out
  18. Thanks Cobra I have sent some email to local upholsterers as i don't know how to gain access to the point i need (as you need to come at from the top) just waiting to hear back from them thanks guys All1
  19. I may need a drone in the next few weeks )when this flaming lockdown ends) but never flown one, i would need somethingthat i could fit a camera on it and be easy to move, just like the old RC cars, not intrested in turning it upside down, just up/down/left and simple, any brands i should be looking at or will any old junk do and if it does not come with a camera what camera should i be looking for, my phone is an Android One (Xiaomi Mi A1, Android Pie i think with latest updates) trust me any input is welcome on this one, some idea of money would be handy i'd rather buy 2nd hand as i suspect it will only be used a few times All1
  20. Looks cool Jamer i have emailed them and hopefully get a reply soon, will let you know what goes one All1
  21. I'm not to sure if that would work but if i got some heady duty one's it might, I have been able to find replacement springs on fleabay (372018667667) but looking at the images i think i'm going to have trouble getting into the angle to fit the new spring, it will mean i will have to dismantle from the top down and i think that is beyond me
  22. Lose some weight you fat pig 🐖 Had the sofa for about 15 years i think it was a habitat, sat on it the day and pop my fat arse has broke one of the Z (curly) wires, i'm guessing i could get it welded (i think they call this stuff spot welding so long as i put some metal plate behind it, i have ebay'd metal cable ties and get some hits but no idea if they would work, i don't need huge long term fix just a couple of months, being in lockdown is not an issue as being classed as disabled nowadays i think i can allow someone to come and help me given my physical limitations nowadays, or better still any home fix would be looked into as well, have good access from underneath the sofa, but access from on top (which i bet i need) is going to be out of my range. So thoughts and comments welcome, oh yea happy fooking Easter All1 I don't know why i still sign All1, jusy a force of habit i guess
  23. What's app no good to me as i'm still running 7 and will not be moving up to 8 or 10, need to be able to make use of a video call
  24. Never used Skype before but i have had to instal it over the last week as i will need it for some online chats soon, instal has gone well but for some reason my mic seem to be failing. I have tried to skype someone on an ipad but he is no techno geek and im unsure if the problem is his end or mine, so does anyone fancy PM me their skype address so i can try and hit you up over the next few days and see if you can hear me? Also anything you think i should check before i go online? All1
