  1. I'm due to visit soon and I've not kept up with any changes since leaving Sheff a long while back. I understand there have been confusing changes over the years? From Meadowhead I used to get either the 25, 53 or 75 which all used to be frequent enough in the daytime, and went towards London Rd and town? Also, the ticket names and prices are of course, totally different. What Buses run by that way now, and can I just buy return tickets?
  2. And his first band in March 1963... https://www.the-paulmccartney-project.com/concert/1963-03-02/
  3. Hi guys. I have a few videos and gifs on my Samsung S5 phone SD card (I still haven't got around to an upgrade). I try to add a gif to the FB comments section but it merely adds them as a jpg, as if they're ''frozen''? And trying the same with my videos from the FB comments section just doesn't even find them at all? Yet on my laptop, I can both find, upload and add both types of file as normal? I don't want their selection of crappy gifs, but my own. I update my phone and also the FB app? Is this their security policy?
  4. Thanks, guys. Yes, pinch/zoom seems a faff each time. Plus, no options come up, nor in settings?
  5. https://iili.io/qqC3l4.png When I play a downloaded mp4 short video the player on my Samsung phone plays it so small it is only about 1" big in the centre of my screen? I check the res of the vid and it was 1280x720? It is really annoying.
  6. But I don't use it. I know that this model's about 15yrs old, but I've yet to get new batteries and test it. Would it sell for much in today's online markets?? It has a 28-300mm lens with polarising filter attached. Would I be better selling the lens separately and the body for spares?
  7. It's not a white space being clicked on, nor malware that can be found by updated Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, etc. I have run those many times. I can search as usual (Google.com with secure padlock) several times on one page at once, but then the odd click (trying to right-click a new tab open) does this??? A new tab with a search-related ad in the new tab?
  8. Hi I'm using Chrome and click to open a new tab, then use the URL bar to search? Plus I regularly run Malwarebytes (updated)
  9. I open Google for a search as usual and, once the results are loaded, I try to click on one I want. Except that the cursor doesn't click on the link despite hovering over it. So I click in an empty space to the side and a new advert tab opens (??)- relating to my topic, yes, but NOT what I searched for exactly. This can happen several times during one search/read session. This has been happening for about 2/3wks now. Surely the page should load search results (as before) and the cursor click immediately upon your desired link/s when YOU want? Are Google being sneaky and installing creepy topic-related pop-ups?
  10. I don't know if anyone remembers a character from at least 15-20yrs ago called Thermos O'Flask (dressed like a flask and always paid for prostitutes)? I have searched for a while and even emailed Viz themselves, who replied, but stating that he was only in issues dating from 2016?? I remember laughing about this character long before then, so must be about 2002-3?
  11. Hi, I have a Samsung S5 (still) and have wanted to arrange all of my folders by putting some similar ones into a parent folder, as sub folders (ie. York and Florida holiday folders within 'Holidays' parent folder)? Saves space on the screen. This can be done easily on Windows desktop/laptops, but android seems to be another matter? I tried a few on Google Play but they're buggy with ads or crash?
  12. Apparently written by Sacha Baron Cohen. Which series and episode featured Anne (eh, eh, ehhhh) doing a rude drawing in a garden?
  13. Sorry to revive this old thread. But I live in the south now and, I could swear that I saw that typing teacher (Mrs Croft?/Garman?) with the shortish dark hair and large posterior? Possibly not as even back in the early 80's she would have been middle-aged?
  14. In an episode of the Napoleonic drama series Sharpe, starring Sean Bean, was there a cameo by Trainspotting actor, Ewen Bremner? Is it him?
  15. I was wanting to back up my reliable 2tb External Hard drive (not to use, purely as saved back ups) and was wondering if the more cost effective brands were reliable? On Amazon for about £30 are brands like Hilabee, Gazechimp, Perfk and Shiwaki? Are these likely to deteriorate due to their cost, or are they surprisingly good?
  16. I phoned sky and they confirmed that there aren't any issues in the area? Still very slow internet? Think I'll get the landlady to change her router.
  17. Yes to the former, no to the latter My laptop was fine on my gf's wifi?
  18. I keep my laptop clean often and haven't downloaded or clicked on anything suspicious, nor added new programs etc, yet one morning last week I switched my laptop on, only to encounter a very slow 1mbs speed (I'm in Bournemouth)? I'm not the account holder, so can't contact Sky. I also have tried switching the router and laptop itself off/on, deleting old programs as well as running Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. Someone did say that Sky is playing up here right now, and the websites seem to suggest nationwide anger at Sky's service, but I'm out of options tech-wise at the moment?
  19. Yes I know, it was the exact day that I was questioning. In some jobs, colleagues handed their notice in on Monday and left Friday- accepted by management. Hi Yes my contract said a week- I Googled for the week and most stated that it starts the next day after you hand your notice in.
  20. Hi Whenever I have worked for someone less than two years, I have always given the notice of one week. So if that day is a Monday (with no weekends), I worked my last day on the following Friday? But someone assures me that if you hand in the notice of 1 week on a Monday, your last day is the following Monday? If this is so, why haven't past employers mentioned this?
  21. Thanks, Akiem, RIP to a lovely gent. A pleasure to have met him.
  22. Did anyone ever work in a call centre during the 80's or 90's? Were the rules more 'relaxed' than now, ie. Data Protection and call quality, etc? What relating to the workday was different than now (system technology aside)? Call volumes, etc?
