  1. Windows 10 no longer supports Twain, but there is a workaround: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/twain-drivers/f45625ae-896b-431c-966e-574d27b9f9cf
  2. So you had better speeds with the same PC connected to Sky than you get with Virgin? If that is so then could it be that the new router has a different type of wifi (2.4Ghz vs 5Ghz etc) or maybe a different wifi chipset that doesn't work well with the chipset in the PC? Edit: Oh sorry forgot you also used Ethernet. In that case it is a bit puzzling. Does the Virgin router have a 1Gb ethernet port or 100Mb?
  3. You could post the picture into the reddit photo restoration forum and ask if someone there can help: https://www.reddit.com/r/estoration/
  4. Well I just tried to restore the wallet again, I have tried in the past but it never worked. It seems I was using the wrong derivation path (?) tried again with a different path and it worked, so I have my 99.9 mBTC back! Thanks. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AsdeObsKGlfrgchzzp8FBG4HNETA0A
  5. I used to use Multibit HD, then that s/w was retired and I moved to Electrum. I have my wallet words, but no idea what I am supposed to do with them. I also have a backup of a folder containing some files ending in .zip.aes, but again no idea what to do with them.
  6. Check this: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/cannot-install-office-on-mac-as-statingthis/f0568cd6-6333-4884-9a99-6bc8d389f779
  7. Bitcoin prices are at a historic high right now, more than £23,200 per bitcoin (I paid £30 for 0.1 BTC a few year ago, then lost it when I upgraded to a new laptop :( ).
  8. Both are LCD (TFT) with LED backlights. The one you linked to has a resolution of 1920 * 1080, so it will have slightly fewer lines. Also it doesn't have a VGA connector, so check what connection you need.
  9. OK, that monitor is 1920 * 1200, IPS with DVI, DP and VGA. Fully adjustable stand. It would be useful to know what display connector you currently use: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/fb/Common_Display_Interfaces.png Dell P2421 24'' IPS LED Monitor under £170 on ebuyer.com iiyama XUB2495WSU-B1 £210 amazon but no DVI. ASUS ProArt Display PA248QV £230 amazon but no DVI. Probably loads of others.
  10. Earlier this year I booked a visit from my electricity supplier to install a smart meter. The engineer got to my house, took one look at the 1940's metal switch box that is on the incoming electrical cable, and said he couldn't touch it. Apparently the old switch box, which is before the meter and consumer unit, makes it impossible to properly isolate the mains supply. I have no idea how to get this switch box replaced, does anyone have any ideas? (BTW my house was rewired in 2007 and the sparky who did that didn't mention anything about the main switch). BTW this is what the box looks like if anyone is interested: https://photos.app.goo.gl/6UczARoffX3aZB927
  11. Do you want to use it only for general office work? What about playing computer games? What about photo/video editing? Do you need HDMI, display port, VGA, usb-c, speakers? Do you need to be able to raise & lower the screen? what about rotate the screen vertically? 1920 * 1080 or a higher resolution? IPS screens are good but may not be ideal for gaming.
  12. Sounds like your house may be due for a rewire.
  13. Apparently it is a NEMA 5–20R: https://www.quora.com/Why-do-some-power-outlets-have-T-shaped-plugs
  14. Run an sftp server and use sftp to transfer files? Alternatively sync a folder between the machines using rsync or syncthing
