Modern technology

What is it with these people that refuse to embrace modern technology?

Autumn

I called my boss and told him I couldn't make it to work today because the wind had blown leaves onto my car in the night.
"So? Just wipe them off." he said.
"Well, they're still attached to the tree." I replied.

Re: Dorset

We've recently returned from holiday in Dorset and I have to say that having travelled over most of England and Wales I've not come across a more friendly bunch of people. They certainly made for a very enjoyable holiday. R6 Sssshhhh don't tell anybody. We prefer people bypass Dorset so it stays sp...

Re: 50 years old

Come off the couch slowly mate. All these sanctimonious advisors don't mention the knee and other injuries acquired by sudden exercise. I find walking swiftly uphill (at first exhausting) is a good way to slide into some kind of shape. But I for one don't get aroused by being knackered. Good luck. ...

Re: 50 years old

Occasionally I get the mower out, and cutting my lawns requires a lot of work.


On BBC R2 Tony Blackburn Sounds of the 60s, II heard that if you pour a bottle of gin onto the grass then it will grow half cut.

Re: 50 years old

Despite going to gym almost every week since the late 1980s, I don't remember when I was 50 being as fit as I feel now, 20 years on. For the past 8 months, once a week almost every week I have been doing circuit training. The class is run by different instructors depending upon their rota. Usually, ...

Re: A worrying request for Apple ID recovery

I received something similar a short while ago. I hesitated whether junk. I 'moused' over the sender's address and it was suspect so I treated it as junk. Last week, I clicked an in-app purchase )on an app I use regularly) and the transaction went through without a hitch. This may be naive but I'd b...

Re: 4G vs wifi for on-line and email

I have now upgraded to 4G unlimited data from EE. £64 incl VAT; get that back so it's £53.33 net. Also loyalty cash-back of £250 and a free 4G mifi for which (EE charge minimum £13 pm) for the same SIM (or different) if I want to use it. I might've have overpaid but I don't have time to shop around.

Re: ‘We will hold it for you until Tuesday”

‘We will hold it for you until Tuesday”

Depends what it is of course but I'd interpret it 'after that we'll drop it!"
Alternatively, 'after that you can hold it yourself.'

Re: 4G vs wifi for on-line and email

The mobile phone shop I use can arrange via EE unlimited 4G for about £60 a month. As I'm currently paying about £25 pm for 5GB (old plan, holding over), the difference of about £35 pm is worth it. Hmm, what exactly are they giving you for the £60/month? An unlimited plan direct from EE costs £34/m...

As part of my plan to have a portable office, I am about to enter into a contract with a long-established UK law practice management cloud-baed software. Their system incorporates Microsoft Office. I use Macs and I have Excel for Mac (v.16) but I have never used Word and/or Outlook. Is anyone able t...

Correction: I am told that the maximum number of devices permitted by Apple for using personal hotspot is 3, excluding the iphone itself.

Will you be taking the roses from the garden too?
