Windows 8.1 - a warning !

Posted: 23/10/2013 at 04:25

I'm on 8.1 installed no problems and works perfect for me. Had no issues at all. It's not 8.1 that's been pulled for laptops & computers as such. It's 8.1 RT thats been pulled, that runs on that spin screen laptop thing the RT and tabs, not sure about phones.

Also if you are having problems with Explorer you need to click on tools, select compatibility view settings, and untick the two box's. That's microsoft's answer till they do they update. I belive google is behaving naughty with gmail, and search results being on the left hand side. Google changed it's code before 8.1 got it's launch date.  good way to plug chrome, & getting google to change anything is pointless. So microsoft will update the code soon.


Serious stuff......no! Really

Archiepem I too remember HOW. It was with carol vorderman when I watched and Fred, something can not think of his last name. If anyone knows.

I can not belive nobody has said Rainbow, I keep hearing the tune now on tv its being used on an advert.

Anyone remember button moon? Portland Bill? Raggy Dolls?


Can you identify this shrub for me.

Thanks Dove, Very good info, RHS say's it can reach 23ft and I can belive it.! I like the idea of doing topiary on it. I have always wanted to have a go. But then again it is at the front

I will have to get cutting's next year, I would love a row of these as a hedge.

This shrub is in my front garden it about 7ft tall topped, but i think it could go bigger, its very dence and bushy & has a red bark. It was here when I moved in, It's my favourite shrub/ hedge in the front, but unfortunately when I have the drive made wider, this is the first thing to go as it's next to the gate post.

I would really like to get cuttings from it, if anyone knows the best time to do this that would be great.


Nobody told me racoons like Christmas cactus.

I'm glad you said that FB, I was thinking i'm sure we dont have racoons.

Otnorot thats alot of racoons, are you allowed to shoot them. I thought americans are encouraged to shoot them or trap them. They are a real pest for you guys.
