  1. would you believe it my two seater sofa just had this happen today I think i need 2 of them to fix it. I come by this guide on youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dRCIwstlLc
  2. This and a pair of pliers will do the job "lucky I know the name of that type of Spring" they are called Sinuous Springs and they are cheap. https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/sinuous-springs?gclid=Cj0KCQjwm9D0BRCMARIsAIfvfIbUTBMjTCHILdpyDCedpS34PxCEl8WLdc6VIv6Eskq_Yt1BTwTBs-caAiASEALw_wcB Just remember to buy 9 gauge at the length you need.
  3. whatsapp has a browser plug-in so will work on any PC that has a web-browser and it will do video calls but it is in beta I've got over 10 hours using it and only ever had one dropout. Or even better yet if you use gmail go here https://duo.google.com/
  4. Stopped using Skype years ago "was getting spammed" even have it on my TV pull up camera "top back of TV" Your a lot better off using whatsapp as a lot of people will already have it on phones and tablets you can use it on PC the is even a webpage but it's in beta https://www.whatsapp.com/download
  5. A1W if you read that link it say's "The market was closed and decontaminated on Jan. 1" if I'm reading that right they have known about this from the 1st of Jan.
  6. We wasted february imagine if we limited flights coming in and did a 14 day quarantine on ALL people coming in from all ports. And implemented social distancing BEFORE any UK cases then when we got the first case did a lighter version of the lockdown and only tighten the lockdown if the was a jump in UK cases. But the is greed and profit so it will always be a case of "closing the stable door after the horse has bolted"
  7. It's killed some of the older famous people Mark Blum (Crocodile’ Dundee) Maria Mercader (american news reporter of 30 years) but a LOT of the famous people that have died from this are non american \ non UK like Italian actress Lucia Bosè

    Origin of viruses

    Jamer the worst of all is "pagpag" in the Philippines if you youtube this the top link is BBC news but this is caused by poverty So not the same as what's happening in china. In china it's about saving a few quid and making bigger profits it's all greed and selfishness over there what's going on all over the world at the moment was so preventable but greedy and selfish people got in the way of this. The lockdown at the moment imagine if this lockdown happend in february and was over before march we will be on top of this by now but if we did the greedy and selfish people would of moaned about it and ignored it because in there eyes not enough people are infected to justify this cost to them "basically missing the point entirely"
  9. Ever wonder why most of the new viruses seem to come from China. You had SARS coronavirus outbreak of 2003 to the Novel Coronavirus of 2019 or covid 19 for short. Here are two videos to get you thinking why do we buy things from China when this is happing there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrv78nG9R04 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_yRuOho-PY
  10. Jamer the is this guy who stayed in for over 2 weeks and still got it the only physical contact to the outside world was the letters thru the door and when cash changed hands for delivery of things (But yes we all need to stay in I have only been out one time from the 13th till now and that was to check on my mom) China are beating this now only if they did it one month sooner.
  11. Amazon are normally good at things sent back in the return window. It's more of a pain to try after the retune window but under warranty. be better if they just update the return button into a RMA req button. but saying that I have had a hand full of doa HDD over the years and all send back in the return window WD toshiba seagate HGTS and the old maxtors and the only time i had any trouble was trying to send back a HGTS.
  12. 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
  13. It's been forever for me too but if WonderFox dose not do the job try DVDFab 11
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
