  1. make a complaint to talk talk and ask them to investigate. it happened to me except I never let them get anywhere near my desktop.
  2. I've just updated to latest apple os and it's deleted everything i.e., address book, diary, FILES etc etc and also unable to use the mail account to access my gmail. please advise ---------- Post added 17-01-2015 at 21:55 ---------- sorted; apple deleted the keychain and rebooted so now everything's back to "normal" but still need to install 10.10
  3. photography shop on Ecclesall Road - £4 for 8 x 6 or 10 x6 (best to check)
  4. yeah I've got bothw7 & Mac. is it quicker to use Uni system rather than home network? ---------- Post added 29-12-2014 at 03:28 ---------- ach but i'm transferring 10 x MP4 files - typically 30-45 mins each - wont that take for ever and a day? ---------- Post added 29-12-2014 at 07:21 ---------- it's reading on apple mac but doesnt seem to be registering on my W7 desktop
  5. having similar probs with talk talk. want to know whether that offer includes landline, broadband and talk anytime/anywhere in the uk? just seen that it only applies to new customers. are there any other decent deals out there? three is not an option as all i've ever had from them is trouble. thanks
  6. I've got a 1tb external drive formatted Windows NT File System (NTFS) and I want to transfer files from an apple mac. Is this possible and if so how? also can I use it on W7 platform? tia
  7. If their os is a reliable indicator I dread to think how their phone os functions.
  8. hey did you ever think your question about smartphones would kick of such a hilarious debate over the politics and relative merits of the IT industry with M$ in one corner and Apple$ in the other? I had a Samsung Galaxy something or other Smart Phone which did the job. Then I was given an iphone 4s for £50 - great friend - it's been a joy to use. iTunes is definitely a nightmare - I HATE IT. Windoze v Apple OS - My sole experience of MS$ from W3.1 to date is crashing out, rebooting etc etc etc to the extent that I think it most unlikely that the mobile version is any better. Best advice I received before buying the Samsung was to buy a cheap smart phone, see how I got on with it and then upgrade which is more or less what I did. Yes iphones are expensive but they WORK and so do their laptops and desktops; that's their USP and KSP - a whole different experience to Windoze and as a non-techie I'm just someone who wants what I buy to do what I bought it - the industry squabbles are hilarious though. It is possible to buy a smart phone type very cheaply - my mate bought one for about a tenner (I think) and put it on a Virgin sim only monthly contract for £5 which also includes data.
  9. Thanks CuMo - I'm starting from the most elementary level of spreadsheet use which is simply SUM = (XXXXXETC) for expenses and related outgoings. No idea how to even setup a parameter Seeing a real live person on Friday who has said they'd be able to help me ---------- Post added 10-09-2014 at 09:25 ---------- They said that I need to familiarise myself with the "IF ... THEN" command
  10. I'm using Excel to analyse survey feedback results. Entered all the raw data and now want to query the responses in a particular field. How do I go about this? Do I want to use Pivot Table or can I just set up a query and if so how do I go about doing so?
  11. Dunno - but i could give it a whirl as soon as I'm back in stock with paper.
  12. Is there some software which will just instruct Outlook to print out all emails to/from a specific person - there are loads and it would free up my time so that I could get on with other things.
  13. Which one to choose? I'm currently with TalkTalk and want to move as I'm fed up with all the wrangles every year. The package I have with them is line rental, broadband and all inclusive calls. They tried to bump me up on to a package with so called free TV for an extra £7 which is a waste of my time and money so I told them where to get off. All I want is line rental, broadband and all inclusive calls anywhere in the UK if possible for unlimited time but at least 60 minutes. Thanks for your time.
  14. You must be desperate as this could cost a lot of money unless there's only a couple of months left on your contract. Me personally, much as I'd hate it, I'd stick with it and then quit at the end of it.
  15. aha - I'm using it to print out emails from Outlook 2010 ---------- Post added 22-07-2014 at 22:50 ---------- and it doesnt seem to have the same simplistic accessibility to instructions like this.
  16. Duplex printing - how do I ensure that it is permanently set to the short edge (left) binding location? it defaults to the long edge, ie top which results in printing upside down on the second page.
  17. 8.1 is a pig of a nightmare. GGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRR - quite forgot about 8 it's even worse
  18. NO - not my area of expertise - but now that you mention it, I'll give the issue a bit of thought and see what thought went and did :D
  19. Thanks for your suggestion. I've absolutely no idea!!! Bought it in 1992 and it's worked with my regular deep clean once a year ever since without any servicing or maintenancing. I'm getting a new kitchen and appliances etc so hardly worth laying out a fortune to get it sorted - although it would be convenience for it to work at least for the next 6 months or so while I sort out kitchen plans/designs etc etc etc. ---------- Post added 17-07-2014 at 16:08 ---------- where are these vents that you're talking about? I had an accident recently and spilled a load of oatmeal down by where the gas flames are at the back of the oven. I've never been able to clean it properly but that was a while ago and by now they should have been burnt to smithereens
  20. Thanks I did. They've said that without seeing it, that after taking account of their call out rate and the cost of replacement parts which could be anything that it's probably going to be cheaper to buy a new one
  21. Although the automatic ignition on my gas oven packed up a while ago, the gas still worked and I was able to use the oven. Now for some reason, the gas has stopped working although the 4 burners and eye level grill still work fine. What is causing this and, assuming it's repairable, what's the likely cost for it to be repaired? :help:
  22. I've just been sent a file with a .dwd extension which I'm unable to open. How do I go about doing sO. Thanks :help:
  23. Thanks one and all. I've now been able to establish what was going on and as probedb says it is indeed . Given their latest activities, I think they may well have just bitten off far more than they can chew Metaphors which spring to mind are David, Goliath, my White Knight and Cheshire Cats - me being the Cheshire Cat.
  24. Thanks for replies so far. The complaint is from someone else who is complaining that I sent them an email today. There is nothing in my outbox, sent box, junk, spam, deleted or drafts to that person. If they were to send me the email which they are alleging I have sent them earlier today, would I see the headers of their email to me in which they are forwarding my email and the headers in the email they are alleging is the email I sent them? What I want to know is it worth while asking them to forward this email so I can check the headers to see whether this email which purportedly originated from my email account did in fact come from somewhere else? I also wonder whether the person who is making this complaint might be doing so simply to be difficult and unreasonable - they are downright obnoxious.
