Wasn`t sure whether to call this one "Lost My Drive" as I couldn`t think of any way to shoot it! Anyway as I destroyed an old drive prior to disposal and it gave initial resistance to opening I instead called this
"Not So Hard Drive"

Why are you paying for Windows 10? If it`s an upgrade from 7 you can still get it for free according to Shelfy that used to be on here who used this link a few days ago to upgrade.

I have one PC with Windows 3.1 and Dos 6, One laptop with Windows XP, one tablet with Vista, one main PC with Vista which is screwed up, one tablet PC with Vista, one main PC with Windows 10 updated from Windows 8.1. This one is screwed up after I removed AOL desktop after TalkTalk stopped support for it without telling me. Yes, I did do a full backup using the option in Windows 10 but couldn't restore it. Checked the internet only to find out it was a known problem with Windows 10! Still I could have used restore to undo changes but Windows 10 deletes this after you log off! I have a Stream netbook with Windows 10 but it's the S version, so can't use it to restore full Windows 10. I have to use the screwed up Windows 10 PC in safe mode for Photoshop. I have the full version of Microsoft Office Professional also on the PC but can't use it now because it needs to connect to the internet to confirm I have a paid up legal copy. You have an option to select safe mode with networking but it doesn't work!

Can't we go back to Windows XP which backed up any changes you made on the sly and could be restored back no problem. It was also one of Microsoft's most stable operating systems.  >:(

So sorry to hear about the loss of a good friend.  :(

As we get older this happens a lot more often, I'm afraid.  :'(

Nice shot to remember him by.  Always sad to lose someone but nowadays 63 is no age at all  :'(.

General Discussion / Untimely death of a friend.
« Last post by anglefire on January 15, 2020, 07:39:46 AM »
The Saturday before Christmas a friend of mine of about 8 or 9 years died, he was only 63  :'(. He was known mostly by his nickname of Wazza, even by his family, though was Warren Pasmore officially. I met him through a Land Rover club and off roading and other social events and was the nicest guy you would want to meet. I never saw him annoyed; he was always in the best of spirits whenever you saw him. Nothing seemed to phase him.

I mention it, because I've put a picture of him in my gallery some while ago and a cropped head shot was used in the Funeral announcement and a framed copy with his coffin, which I have to say did make me quite emotional.

This is the shot, some of you may remember it from when it was first put up.



At his funeral we found out that he was a member of the British Bobsleigh team.

Be will be sorely missed.

Please vote for your favourite Wrap Up Warm picture. As I didn't hear back from Paul about his 'Warm as Toast' picture I have not included it. Don't forget this week's challenge - ELECTRONICS.

Went into PCWorld/Dixons in Birmingham to buy a new monitor but, the one I wanted they didn't have even thought they had one on display? Ok I said, then I'll have a copy of Microsoft Windows 10 Home Edition. They have dummy boxes on display but we have to go downstairs to get a copy out of the security cupboard. He looks in the cupboard then turns to me and said, "we don't have any"! No wonder the British high street is failing if they are all like this!  >:(
