  1. Well, to absolutely no one's surprise, the domain was not renewed and is now flagged as "*** This registration has been SUSPENDED. ***". (See https://www.whois.com/whois/tracklogs.co.uk). It seems that the domain will become available for purchase 90 days after the expiry date (4th September + 90 days). So, if I were to purchase the domain, is anyone able to advise on the legality of using it to host the final version of the software, along with the purchased maps that any subscribers can provide (which are and will remain out of date)?
  2. I've sent you a Private Message...
  3. I wouldn't have thought there'd be a specific book about the walk, but there are plenty of online resources e.g. full route description, map, GPX here and bookings for a guided walk here.
  4. How come I've never heard of this place - it sounds magnificent?! Think I'll finally have to get round to doing the Five Weirs and pay a visit.
  5. Have you not tried searching for online German courses? Many are available, free and paid for. I'm not sure how "free" the free ones would be, but https://www.deutsch-lernen.com/ might be a typical example.
  6. I (and others here) can provide the installation files for Tracklogs 3.18.02. But the ability to share maps would be great if a single repository could be set up somewhere for all of us to upload to. Can anyone advise on this?
  7. I joined Viewranger last September at £24.99 a year for "Premium + OS Maps for GB", and using the phone app as my GPS. I've put up 4 screenshots of Tunbridge Wells to give you an idea of the zoom levels available: https://u.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=kZl7kEkZEXOyj3Y9yIhMHIrvqMsPjFwo4Pz7 In fact, the subscription also gives mapping on quite a detailed road-level for the whole world!
  8. It depends what you mean by " accurate enough for walking purposes": a walk my friend planned for us using Tracklogs would have involved a stop for lunch at a pub which is now closed - and that's a serious issue for me! I use Viewranger for my routes and tracks now, and that seems to keep well up-to-date. Plus it gives maps down to what seems to be 1:1250, and I've found that useful for finding more obscure paths.
  9. Glad you got sorted. I see that tracklogs.co.uk is still registered as a domain until 4th September, so it'll be interesting to see if they renew it (which I doubt!).
  10. I suppose you can receive PMs, so I've sent you one...
  11. Yes, 3.18 will save to GPX. Please PM me if you wish to progress this mattter...
  12. Please PM me or/and Stephen1789 if you'd like to progress this matter. [As a general point, it's worth bearing in mind that the Tracklogs maps we all have are now likely to be well out of date and will, of course, remain so.]
  13. David, In case Roger is not monitoring this topic, from what I can see you need a subscription to CW magazine (https://www.greatmagazines.co.uk/country-walking-magazine) and that enables you to get half price sub to OS Maps, but whether that entails a full subscription (£61 for 26 issues) or trial or single-issue subscription I don't know.

  14. Urgent dental care is available, as described here. But it's a staged process, and there are hoops to be jumped through. The suggestion of regular warm salt water rinses is the sensible first step, along with pain killers. If that doesn't sort it (thankfully, it did for my wife over 3 days earlier this week), it would be triage and escalation to emergency care.
  15. David - private message sent.
  16. The best line I've seen (from Twitter) was: If you think society is bad now, wait until 2040 when we’re governed by people who were home-schooled by day drinkers
  17. Does anyone know what the legal position is regarding copying of defunct software? Are we allowed to give copies of our CDs and licence keys to others? If so, I'd be willing to share mine, but I only have OS50 for whole of GB (plus separate Peak District) i.e. no OS25.
  18. Very sad news. Frank was not just a legend in Sheffield. I first saw him 1969 or 1970, playing at The Ancholme Inn in Brigg (North Lincs, my home town). Brigg was a bit of a small, sleepy town, but Frank livened the place up, and the pub was always packed and rocking whenever he came over - which he did often. Also saw him at The Greyhound on Fulham Palace Road, and Kingston Poly (supporting Al Stewart) when he was trying to reach out to a wider audience in the early 70s. Then many great nights at The Pheasant after I moved to Sheffield. He was always willing to spend time chatting to us, and even brought the band back to my parents' house after one Brigg gig. Top talent; top man.
  19. The tracker is not 100% reliable, as we found to our cost on Monday. Went to catch the midday inbound 135 which was tracking OK all the way from Rotherham; it turned up, but showing SNIS... Similar instances with other services. And, even if a bus is not showing as tracking, it does not necessarily mean it won't turn up: all pot luck in my experience.
  20. Ah, the lesser-spotted 135... What a shambolic "service" we've been lumbered with. The age-old ploy in action: run down the service, complain that not enough people use it, then scrap it.
  21. A quick search for "files random size 221,184 Kb" shows you are not alone - and have got off lightly with a mere 164GB! Maybe have a look at this post for starters. And if you don't feel happy about deleting the folder immediately, just rename it (by adding a string such as ' disabled' to the end of the random name) and see if anything complains or breaks.
  22. Harsh VAR. Dier's knee and shoulder looked to be keeping Lundstram onside.
  23. There are mixed reviews about Shell Energy on Trustpilot, but, overall, 4 out of 5 stars. Some of the reviews are not pleasant reading (especially if you have an aversion to long, abusive rants in uppercase...). But credit due to Shell for at least being willing to reply there in a calm manner.
  24. So the scam's not as clever as I imagined. OK, so pressing 1 still gives the opportunity for a wind up 👍
