  1. Liquorice aphrodisiac gets everyone regular Mecca
  2. Electromagnetic Waves demonstration by Sir Lawrence Bragg For anyone interested in EM waves this video is well worth viewing. Around 9 minutes into the presentation, demo of microwaves focused using an optical lens.
  3. Microsoft's idea of Windows as a service and quality assurance with two featured updates per year is poor. Their 1809 release is a case in point, it was pulled after users complained of deleted files, even though the problem had been highlighted by some of their insider preview testers. In addition some Winows 10 Pro users complained of their machines becoming Windows 10 Home machines. Users of Windows 10 Pro/Enterprise/Education can delay installation of updates, alas this option is not available to Windows 10 Home users, and yet this is the very group most vunerable to broken updates with the least resources to correct any issues created by a defective update. My main machine runs Windows 7, and I will be begin looking for a replacement in a couple of months.
  4. An email from BT with the heading "Handpicked for you in our January Sale". It goes on to say: "Enjoy our best ever connection for less". A little further down the text: "our most reliable broadband connection yet for just £2 extra a month". BT must be taking their sales patter from a well known American president.
  5. Here is an interesting video: "The School Boys Who Cracked the Soviet Secret" Of course the 'Spherically Challenged' amongst us will say it is all a hoax dreamed up by the Russians, Europeans and Americans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQFmF9Gnp0A

  14. Had Jury Service a few years ago, it's almost impossible to get an exemption. The Armed Forces, Police, and certain government staff (HMRC) are exempt. See the following link: https://www.gov.uk/jury-service
  15. It's always worth reading the reviews to determine if they are a bunch of Wannabes, Pretenders or Also-rans. Remember none of of the suppliers are All-stars. https://www.broadband.co.uk/broadband/providers/now-broadband/reviews/
