    Climate Change thread

    If the love of money and power etc only lasts for say 20 years after which no one can live on this planet, what will those who love their greed think of it then?

    How long will that method take to solve the problem? How long have we got?

    Illegal Microsoft Office?

    Yes, you're right simonj. My mistake.

    Illegal Microsoft Office?

    Simonj, you say I probably have a copy intended for use inside an organisation using the Volume Licence key. You may be right but I haven't even got that volume licence key since the shop refused it. Where can I find this key and if I quote it at Microsoft will it work if I say I am part of the organisation that paid for this licence key? Note that the shop has since closed and left no forwarding address.

    Illegal Microsoft Office?

    That's interesting. Where is this source please? I have Open Office but when I do an OCR scan the scan result only offers to send it to Microsoft Word, not Open Office. I tried to send it to Open Office but no go. Linux, yes. What would happen to my access to my existing Windows Word files and CRO scans if I switched to Linux? Libre Office: what about access to my existing Windows Word files and CRO scans?
  8. I got a copy of Microsoft Office from my local Trade It shop (not the national one) for 30 quid, installed. Apart from a few bugs in this Office which I removed, it has worked well for 6 months but yesterday Microsoft popped up with a note asking me for the licence number. They also altered my setting so that I cannot edit. I had already asked the shop for the licence number when I bought it but they refused and said that I would not need it. How wrong they were and how trusting I was. Microsoft said my Office is supposed to work with other PCs in an office, not as a stand alone. Trade It has gone bust and closed down so what can I do to get my Office going again? It's on Windows 10. I have copies of my documents on a firestick.

    fixed blade bending?

    I got in touch with a supplier of my sort of bottom blades and he told me that the model of my mower was not intended for long grass. So that looks like it could be true and if so that's how the bottom blade can bend in long grass. The mower is a Qualcast Concorde model E30. The only way I can think of for stiffening the blade is to remake it in gauge plate and harden it to suit. Any comments?

    fixed blade bending?

    Thanks guys. Good ideas both. I was wondering if there was some way to stiffen the blade?
  11. I filed the rotary blades in my Qualcast cylinder style grass mower until they just scraped past the fixed blade and were able to cut a single sheet of newspaper as good as a new pair of sharp scissors, right across the cylinder width. Everything looked perfect but when I put the mower on my grass the rotary blades fouled the fixed one. I found that this was due to the fixed blade bending up slightly when the grass pushed up on it. There is no front roller across the mower on this model. But the mower has two front wheels and these should have prevented the fixed blade pressing down on the grass too much but these wheels are only about 30 mm wide and they don't do the job very well. My main concern is that the fixed blade shouldn't bend under the fairly small upward force imposed by the grass. This is poor design. If I widen the wheels to reduce their tendency to sink into the grass the mower will not work as close to edges as it does now. Has anyone got any idea how to fix this?

    Never the less the part that's us may one day understand everything by understanding how we understand.
