  1. I had an iPhone 4 like that. I bought very good quality cables, it wouldn't charge or sync. Got one from Apple and no problems...very odd! I've had plenty of Apple devices with no issues at all with after market cables. Also it does help if the PC USB port is clean and working properly. I have had them play up with some USB 3 ports. The rest of the time was me that couldn't be arsed to read how to setup the device with iTunes etc...can't blame anyone but me for that.
  2. Take the advice above too. The water pump change is a very wise move while you're having the cam belt done. I know it's not a cheap fix but worth it in the long run. I was a bit surprised when the mechanic at the dealers told me that mines 10 years (2018 Pug 308SW 2.0 HDI).
  3. That would depend on the type of bulletin you mean. I'm a bit of a novice on the radio news, as such I'm still trying a few out. I have the phone set to alert to breaking news that interests me. Not things like Boris being 'ambushed' by a birthday cake! You? Any pointers?
  4. I can see how some people think the BBC is good value for money for them. I can't just put it down to the BBC but I think live TV in general in the UK is terrible, and certainly not worth £150. I don't have a problem with people that like our live TV, I'd just rather watch what & when I want. News is via the radio, it was the only thing I ever watched on live TV but when strictly come dancing becomes news, I call it a day. As for taxes we don't seem to benefit from. Agreed, there are many. It will always be the way, some you win on, some you seem to lose on...life!
  5. You're comparing an entertainment company to a countries transport infrastructure? You may not own a car...ever took a taxi or bus? What do they drive on? A strange comparison, but you're entitled to your opinion.
  6. Couldn't have put it better. All after the big chair, nothing else matters. They'll all use any tactic possible to sit in it!
  7. That name does sound familiar. I remember him having a post removed for whatever trivial reason. He responded and said it sometimes took him days to write a post how he wanted it, and some high and mighty mod deleted it in seconds. Such a shame the forum went the way it did, due to 'some' moderators.
  8. I remember someone that used to write very long and very funny posts. I can't remember if they were the same person that used to include 'Tree Penguins' quite a lot. If my 'older mind' remembers right, they didn't fit into the click that ran things at the time, and they left the forum. A lot of the funny side of the forum seems to have gone now...or I don't get involved in the right threads.
  9. Although I didn't like all their songs, Nirvana did make some excellent ones. I was watching Black Widow and this came on. I think it's a really good cover. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit (Malia J Cover) And here's the original.
  10. I have the same issue as Ghozer, and yes it is all pages. I have noticed that some days it's fine. On the 'slow' days, I've tested other sites and they seem OK. And just to be clear, my PC is not slow, the browsers are kept clean and up to date. The internet could be faster but a 70/20 (average) is fast enough to load web pages quickly.
  11. Agreed. Also, It does come under the wrong forum title IMO. A disability or health problem isn't an interest, it's a way of life for a lot of people. I'm not sure which would be the best place to put the topic. But not where it is!
  12. This is something worth considering with all remote desktops. I find they work well for general PC use, such as web browsing, documents etc. Try and play video at a higher resolution and they show their limitations. That's just one example of potential issues.
  13. If the new iMac doesn't have a video input (I don't think they do) You can't use it as a directly wired monitor. You could setup remote desktop software on both macs and use it that way. I use Teamviewer...free for personal use on Windows. Double check it's the same for mac. There should be others if you have a look round for mac remote desktop software. It might be a bit of trial and error to get the best fit and resolution. The link glitterballs has posted looks helpful, I'm not sure if it will work on your mac, assuming it's one of the new M1 iMacs.
  14. You'd think so. But it was a BIG bill and I wasn't too happy about it. I'll have to wait and see what happens with the checks and the next bill.
  15. I wouldn't have a clue where my meter is! I can't speak for your water company but Yorkshire water told me, they do one estimated and then one manual reading. As I pay quarterly, that's 2 estimated and 2 manual per year. My last one was 4 times the normal usage! Nothing changed with how I live/use water. I'm getting things checked on my end, with regards to any leaks etc. I think it's an error on their part but they won't admit it or do anything until I've had everything checked. This could be the reason mine was wrong. I don't know if they check the reading against the meter number/address. Apologies for hijacking your thread.
