Acer was just looking and the replies say it all. My current one is Toshiba on Vista which I love, certainly an improvement over windows 7, still it is five years old which in Laptop terms warrants a telegram from the Queen.
Back to Toshiba I think although no rush now I am back on line, had HP in my office so many years ago now we had to reinforce the desk big ugly and to me a waste of time and paper
At computer school I used the Apple as no one else would go on it, thought it a wonderful machine and program but why so costly compared with other well known names.
Will wait for the sales when the children are back at school, mine are away caravanning in the Lake District.

Back again, sent for new power cord Tuesday, £20 plus postage, arrived today plugged in and away. Still going to buy a new one though, this is old and slow like me, looking at Acer, anyone got one and comments.
Read through the thread thought I was on the wrong thread, I arrived at Secondary School on crutches and a big pot on my leg so got a good bullying, two weeks later Mother got a letter from the head master, tell your son to stop using his crutches as deadly weapons, end of being bullied.
In the forces you stand up to be counted even though your guts turn to water all good practice to supervise the ICI heavy squads and worse still the Office girls.
Rant today is that Easterly wind when will it turn away? the weather forecast says warmer, last night was frost and today bitter.

Blackest, my laptop is coming up five and nearly full even though I put stuff on disc. I saw a flicker of life a minute ago so came on fast.
The batteries are dying, the power cable has a fracture somewhere and compared with modern laptops mine is heavy so new it will be after all I cannot take it with me and I saved some money towards it with shifting my house insurance.
If this was a horse I would have to shoot it.

Frank. (made it, I hope)

Fairygirl/Daughter, I keep getting a flicker on the thing then it cuts out so this may not go.
Looking for mid-range with more speed as I write for the local libraries History plus putting it all down for the Grandchildren to read some day, the printer gets red hot.
Already won half the cost, changed my house and contents insurance this morning saving £247 a year, the old insurance did not even ask why i was leaving them after all those years.
Hope to be up and running soon.

To my friends (that is if I have any) I will be off air awhile.
My laptop has taken a turn for the worse and very hit and miss at the moment.
Part ordered although looking to buy new, there is so much choice I am taking my time.
Will be back sometime.

Frank.

What's the weather like in your area?

Stockton Dull and cold.

My last report for a while as laptop on the blink, posting hit and miss.
New part ordered although looking at new ones, it is a minefield, too much choice.

May be gone a while Frank.

mulching advice please

Raw wood chips take the Nitrogen out of the soil and if fresh contain natural retarders, as Bob says add a bit at a time to the compost heap or the black bags and forget it for a while.
I start my new compost heap by throwing woody sticks into the base, this allows air in at the bottom to circulate up and rots the wood down. I am using one heap and filling the other so it has time.
Once tried wood chip many years ago and regretted it never did that again,

When you say we both slept in together, Frank, p'raps it'd better be made clear that these were different beds in different houses!!!


Well G/G, I did lay my head down in Bridgend at one time, my nightmare was probably Welsh Dragons?

Fairygirl /Daughter yes Yorkshires I rarely eat the other kind most are too sweet for me and I have to use sugar for the family although not a lot.
By the time is it served up all the tureens empty and put into the hands of designated washer upper much time has passed by as we do talk. Sounds like they are breaking evrything out there.

Oh well G/G, we both slept in together, not often I do but must have had a bit of a nightmare, the bed was wrecked, had to remake it bottom up and that is the washer on as well.
A big free range chicken, local butcher £1 more than T---- but I know where it came from. Stuffing in and around bacon on the breast been basted a couple of times so having to keep working, apart from now that is, quick sit down.
Puddings to mix now and all set to go the last mile, two and a half hours to make, twenty minutes to vanish.
Is that a rant at the end?
