...ooh..I'd love to go to town on that one.... a fine cosy garden in prospect.... get rid of the weeds..some might advocate using chemicals here..but I just dig it all out... then see what you've got left and visit the garden centre.... I do love walls...grow nice things on that with some support...

...huge monster growing up in the middle of that wall...lol... no idea what it is...

..how strange.. the first one was via Firefox and is larger than the 2nd which is via IE11 onWin 8.1... I can edit in IE but I can't edit in Firefox...if I want to resize via the 'paint' box... ...so, I shall have to resize the photo in IE, otherwise they don't enlarge... and post it with Firefox....

..sorry, just thinking aloud here.... bi for now...

..thank you for alerting us Tina...something to watch out for... we've just found out that our gas account has been transferred to another supplier without our knowledge... going to take weeks to sort out... we've no idea how it happened... so something underhand has occurred here, or just human error, hopefully...

Windows 8.1 - a warning !

Posted: 23/10/2013 at 11:40

Zombie..... I want to thank you so much for that information and advice... I didn't know about those settings and I have removed those 2 ticks in the compatibility view settings.... it works so much better... my emails are back to normal too...

I'm very grateful...

..however, I still believe 8.1 has an intrusive nature that was not there with 8 on it's own... and unless one is very careful to customise settings, especially if using their Sky Drive.. then we are giving them too many permissions...like social media... it's checking those privacy settings that's very important... I wonder if too many people will, during download, simply go with the 'recommended' settings... of course if you don't get involved with Sky Drive or Apps then we don't need that MS account, but if you do...then we have been warned...

KEF wrote (see)

Don't really know what I'm on about but I thought I'd seen today that 8.1 had been withdrawn.

Thanks again Salino for telling me how to reduce / post my pictures. Hope all is ok with you

..hi KEF...yes, thank you and it's nice to talk to you again.... I'm pleased I was able to help with the photo situation a while ago... 

...I've not heard this one about it being withdrawn... but I notice a lot of very dissatisfied customers so far... 

...just wait till we all get this Google Glass thingy.... oh my goodness... don't get me started...

..we shall soldier on...

Windows 8.1 - a warning !

Posted: 22/10/2013 at 14:33

..thank you for the advice... I'm afraid I don't have pods, pads nor phones so iOS isn't any use to me there...

...this windows 8.1 comes with IE 11 the latest version, which I believe is more secure than any other browser - so I've been reading, or at least that's what they like to tell us... but it does have a few bugs it seems...to be ironed out... and it's probably as much to do with some websites not accommodating it properly as yet... this one for instance... you cannot puts links in posts using IE11 nor can you post a photo... you can upload the photo and 'save' it, but it doesn't appear in the post box...

...I also have Firefox and use that on here sometimes but prefer IE... on my Vista laptop I have IE9 and that doesn't cause any issues...

...I dare say it'll all come out in the wash....
