    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.

    Where's andsome

    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.

    What are you having for dinner today?

    Yesterday was a beef curry. I cheated by using a bottled (Sharwoods) Madras sauce. Today is (completely) homemade leek & potato soup with the addition of Silesian (Polish) sausage (that part not homemade). Served with bread (made in the breadmaker).

    Just shows how well we are doing our job. I also delete/ban several people a week who are trying either to sell things or subvert the forum in other ways.

    There was a Belatucadrus absence from October 8th to November 28. My 'silent' visits are to try and keep a check that postings do not contravene the law or common decency.

    Yesterday was fresh mussels in tomato sauce with rice. Today is hake but not sure how it will be cooked yet. Edit: the hake will be breadcrumbed and shallow fried, served with Actifry chips and cooked frozen peas.

    What are you having for dinner today?

    Aubergine sliced about 1cm thick dipped in egg and semolina and shallow fried. Served with bacon, mushrooms and canned tomatoes. Possibly some bread on the side. Cooked this way, aubergine goes soft and squidgy with a crisp outside.

    Windows 8.1 hangs a lot

    I am unable to understand why anyone is still using the 8th incarnation of the Windows O/S after Microsoft realised their faux pas with the system and gave away the next version of Windows for free.
