  1. My dentist is working normally, at least as far as fillings and checkups are concerned. I’ve had two permanent fillings during lockdown. The practice has all the necessary equipment and the staff are taking the required precautions. They have an aerosol procedure in place which includes the staff wearing high level PPE, the windows being opened and the room being left empty for a certain length of time between patients - I think it is about 15 minutes.
  2. If the building is demolished, this will be just a memory.
  3. Item about John Lewis Sheffield on ‘You and Yours’, Radio 4 today. It’s about 20 minutes in.
  4. No need to be sorry about your resignation - due to your bereavement you have enough to cope with right now. It’s quite possible that these changes were in the pipeline anyway, and you leaving has just created an opportune moment to progress them. It’s clear from the depth of feeling displayed in this thread that the forum is well overdue for a refresh. Five pages in and people have had their say with civility and no rudeness.
  5. Nikki-red - it is unfortunate that the handover wasn’t completed in a way that you were happy with. This was a sensitive issue, particularly as you have put in many hours of your time moderating the forum. As someone who deals with two forums I know how time consuming the work can be. You have made some interesting posts in the past and hopefully you will now be able to contribute more fully. Also, the criticism from fellow members will cease. It is clear that Sheffield Forum is not what it was in terms of post/thread numbers but whether this is due to over moderation or other social media platforms is unclear. Mr Bloke is right though - this discussion would have been shut down immediately under the old team. I hope that there will be no more removal of posts (unless they are offensive), no help desk messages and greater transparency. I also hope that members will be able to say what they want (with civility of course). It is not a moderators role to steer discussions in one direction. I wish the new owner and team success and hope that the forum becomes the lively place that it once was.
  6. The transcript is to the right of the screen, opposite the video.
  7. Would installing Ubuntu on the Chromebook help? Install Ubuntu on a Chromebook
  8. My previous iPhone 6S updated OK. If yours won’t update automatically you can do it via iTunes.
  9. It might help to switch everything off that is using Bluetooth and then try to connect. Perhaps updating drivers might help.
  10. Organgrinder - I can see your point about computers made in China. From a quick search, it seems that even if you have a custom built computer from the likes of Novatech, the parts are likely to be from China and/or Taiwan so you may have to put this to one side for now. I checked out the Lenovo that you referenced but could only find one USB port which was on the side, not the front but perhaps I got it wrong. As I am sure you know, the all in ones are designed to look nice and neat so manufacturers will not spoil that look in order to put ports on the front. This feature is important to you so you will have to decide on looks or practicality. If you go for the former, a powered hub could solve the problem of access. I have one which I use from time to time because laptops are short of ports these days. It works very well. A traditional desktop computer which has USB ports at the front would also solve the problem but you can't get away from the clutter. One other solution might be to buy a laptop with a 17" screen but it might not be large enough for you. Of course you could buy a laptop and use a separate monitor. You would have to scout round for one that has sufficient USB ports though. Mine only has two but I have got round that by using a micro c to USB adapter which utilizes the power port so it converts it to three USB ports but of course I make sure the laptop is fully charged before use.
  11. Well, you know better than me. All I can say is that I have never heard of anyone having a virus on an iPad. I assume it is a very rare occurrence, especially when the iPad is used correctly and not tampered with. I still think that this elderly gentleman may be mistaken - at least I hope so.
  12. An iPad does not need an antivirus app and it is highly unlikely that it has a virus. It's possible that your neighbour has heard about viruses and is assuming that he has one because the iPad is malfunctioning in some way. If you can find out exactly what problems he is having with the device and post back perhaps someone can help. It's also worth doing a bit of maintenance ie clear cookies/history, reboot, delete unused apps, transfer data to external devices.
  13. Good point Annie Bynol - I was just thinking the same thing.
  14. Apple also have a refurbished store. I bought an iPad 2 Air from them and it’s been perfect.
  15. Gluedtopc - there are plenty on eBay, it’s a case of wading through what’s on offer. Check the grades - you will obviously pay more for grade A. My last 6S was a refurb and it’s been excellent. Had to replace the battery last year but it didn’t cost much. The 7 Plus that I recently bought came via eBay. I ended up buying a new one for a similar price to a refurbished 8. If you do buy from eBay make sure that returns are accepted and check the phone out thoroughly when you receive it. I had to return a previous 7 Plus because it was not as described - it had screen blemishes and marks on the back. Make sure the phone comes with a warranty.
