    No Problems?

    No, the phrase flogging a dead horse comes to mind. This is now officially the Norwegian blue parrot of Internet forums. Bereft of life it rests in piece, it's shuffled off this mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-FORUM !

    No Problems?

    Great to see that members are not reporting problems perhaps due to better technology & also expertise of members. But are the Moderators looking at ways of changing/enhancing this great old forum to keep interest alive?

    What is keyword stemming?

    Since the above information (dealing with the matter of the difference between oak and "cured dribblings" ) was first raised, it has been discovered that, as a building material, cured dribblings is totally unbeatable for keeping out the drunken vicars that, all too frequently these days, are more than necessarily quite friendly on a Wednesday (often without salami).

    Note to members

    Sadly, I no longer have any motorcycles, fast or slow.. I have had many during the long time I used & enjoyed them. My first was a pre-war, hand-change, Rudge Ulster 500cc . My last were a couple of BMW 988cc (that took us all over U.K. and Europe, with little more than routine servicing and holding the speed less than 100 mph. Sadly the "Passing of the Years" came along and the "Bike" needed retirement (and so did the passengers.0 The weeping is gradually abating.

    "Forth-party apps to scan third-party apps to update second-party apps. ".........and a partridge in a pear tree !

    App Manager

    I haven't the need for such idiocy anymore. Forth-party apps to scan third-party apps to update second-party apps.

    App Manager

    I have used "Patch My PC" https://patchmypc.com/home-updater-download for the past couple of years 😊 PS What is your weather like over there in the Mid-West ?
  16. Curious as to what App Manager, forum members are using. I currently use File Hippo, any other members use it? If so, are you scanning any area of your drive other than the default? My operating system is Windows 10 Home and my applications are in two areas, Program Files and Program Files (x86). I was wondering if anyone using File Hippo was scanning the entire drive and if so how time consuming it was. I don't have much experience with App Managers so would appreciate your input. As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance. John

    In days gone by it was stuffed by the butler with a 2lb snag track. But if the weather was too cold a small group of professional leather thrashers would apply a paste made up of cold tripe and sweet klick.

    Why the hell not 88

    Poor, unlucky child. There must be great discomfort in wandering about with all that excess load.

    Clearly you have come down with Trumps disease, aka small hand syndrome.

    This is the perfect forum if your time is limited. A lively forum will waste your time.

    You are right Alan. I have become disenchanted with the rock bottom membership on here. I pop and have a look now and then, but have limited time to spend on forums, and I have found a much more lively place.Its a shame really. This used to be a lively place, but times have changed.

    andsome has told me that he is happy elsewhere and unlikely to be back. With Bela indicating that he may do the same - it will leave just me starting new threads and only catgate to respond. Sadly - I too will bid the forum a sad goodbye after being here for 15 years - it was great while it lasted - but all good things eventually come to an end.

    What are you having for dinner today?

    Pasta, probably linguine, with a tomato & cheese sauce. The tomato & cheese sauce comprises my own tomato sauce (see recipe in another section of the forum) with strong Cheddar cut into 1cm cubes and stirred in immediately before serving. Done this way the cheese just melts but doesn't properly mix with the tomato - a ripple effect.

    The fundamental problem with the forum - and other forums dedicated to computer problems - is that since Microsoft have improved their product(s) so much there is not nearly as much difficulty experienced by users, thus less forum activity. Look at what has happened to PC Advisor (and its forum). It is not only computer forums, though. Forums dedicated to a whole range of other subjects are feeling the effects of more modern communication systems, collectively called social media. Personally, I don't get on with systems like Facebook and whatever the other similar things are. They are too immediate for my ageing brain and I think that may apply to some other members here who do still make an, albeit infrequent, appearance.
