  1. 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?
  2. 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)
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. Apparently written by Sacha Baron Cohen. Which series and episode featured Anne (eh, eh, ehhhh) doing a rude drawing in a garden?
  7. 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?
  8. In an episode of the Napoleonic drama series Sharpe, starring Sean Bean, was there a cameo by Trainspotting actor, Ewen Bremner? Is it him?
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. Yes to the former, no to the latter My laptop was fine on my gf's wifi?
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. Thanks, Akiem, RIP to a lovely gent. A pleasure to have met him.
  16. 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?
  17. Yes it is NTFS. But if 4tb isn't it down to the TV's USB power (ie. over 2tb) and FAT format wouldn't work?
  18. Hi, sorry for the late reply. Yes it's 4tb and USB powered.
  19. My Toshiba smart TV has been ok with my Seagate External 2tb portable Hard Drive for ages, playing the files as soon as plugged in. I bought a new WD External portable hard drive (4tb), connecting ok to my laptop and I copied files across from my old HD to this new one. However, I plugged the new HD into the USB of my TV, but nothing happened? The TV simply says there is no drive connected?
  20. Oh yeah, because Barnsley's dense BNP imbeciles have a stall in the town centre- very forward thinking and intelligent to attract foreign/business investment.
  21. Seeing how the former KGB Lt.Col is getting even nastier with the UK and other nations- increased cyber attacks (as well as historically sending his navy into the Channel, scrambling jets into our airspace and [alledgedly] killing other agents here) why don't we upset him back with his movie look-alike, Gollum/Smeagol? This angered him way back then. https://9gag.com/gag/6437053/putin-gollum-dobby When Lord of the Rings came out umpteen years ago he was apparently not too pleased that Smeagol/Gollum, was based on him!! https://www.theguardian.com/film/2003/jan/30/harrypotter.news
  22. My Mrs has an old Siemens phone archived away, which still works (battery and USB cable) but when we plug it into my laptop there is no driver to connect it? We've searched online, incl the Siemens website, but are out of luck- She might well have to get a cheap SIM and send them, but are there other options? Thanks
