  1. Exactly the same thing applies to another game using the terms bias, jack, heavy, rink - at least with golf you get a nice long walk PS - I play neither game.

    Adhesive

    The problem - to cover over/block off the hole left by a no longer required cat flap in a UPVC back door. I am trying to avoid the expense of buying a new UPVC back door for as long as possible. PLAN A - DIY quick fix Use a small 300mm x 200mm sheet of 3mm white acrylic, to stick to the outside of an otherwise excellent white external UPVC door panel to cover the hole. When stuck on, there must be a waterproof seal where the materials bond, as the door is facing directly into the prevailing weather. I’m looking at Everbuild “Stick 2” Hard Plastic adhesive ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Everbuild-stick-hard-Plastic-adhesive/dp/B0012R9Y98 or Bostik Hard Plastics Clear Adhesive ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bostik-Plastics-Adhesive-Blister-501560/dp/B00R368QSW Any suggestions as to whether one of these will be adequate to make the seal, or do I need something more exotic ? Thanks for any help you can give. PLAN B - fit a replacement panel 750mm x 750mm replacement panels on Ebay seem to be about £30. (depending on whether you need 20mm, 24mm or 28mm depth). I’m sure I can cut one to size, but first I need to somehow get the old sealing rubbers off without ripping/splitting them and then try and get the internal beading off to drop the old panel out to measure what depth I need. It “looks” simple, BUT knowing my luck, the old rubbers will get damaged, and I then won’t be able to find new ones because of the door’s age, so I’ll have a door with the panel rattling around in the frame letting in draughts/water. Mrs B would definitely never give me any peace. I used to know a good window fitter, but he moved away, and the local companies only seem interested in selling half a dozen windows or a couple of doors – no small jobs. This is why I thought of trying a more permanent DIY quick fix. I’ve covered the hole with duct tape for 5 years, and then filled the inside with expanded foam. It works well, but the tape keeps peeling off in the sun/rain after a few months, exposing the inner foam. If I can find some adhesive that will permanently bond acrylic and UPVC together – it is a much simpler job.

    Moz Back Up

    Moz Backup is still available. MozBackup 1.5.2 Beta 1 was the last version produced, with bug fixes and works on Win 10. I use it myself. It is still obtainable from http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/files/1.5.2-beta/MozBackup-1.5.2-beta1-EN.zip Alternatively you can use KLS Mail Backup (free for personal use) - which I also use. Latest version: 4.0.0.8 - http://www.kls-soft.com/klsmailbackup/index.php
  8. No - it has a huge rear aerofoil to reduce drag/increase downforce

    Are the ones you are trying to "un-junk" in any of your address books ? If not, try adding them and see if that improves things ? Just try a couple first ????

    CCleaner security issues

    Bearing in mind this happened some 9 months ago, i think that if you haven't had problems by now you should be OK

    CCleaner

    If you use the excellent Patch My PC (free) - as I do https://patchmypc.net/overview it not only keeps over 300 programmes up-to-date on your PC, but you never get any of this unrequired bloatware installed during installation
