  1. I wish, the only animation I ever created was a rather naff bit of Flash for the multimedia section on my HND computing many moons ago. I simply don't have the patience for it. I could probably ride a horse into a tree though.
  2. Another month another clip, yet again I avoid the music threads that only I apparently like.
  3. Back in the day this would have inevitably prompted andsome to tell us Internet Explorer was the finest browser ever created and that all others were second rate wannabees, ho hum.
  4. Having seen that there's a new version of Vivaldi I reloaded it to the Linux machine and the new version works fine. Comes with built in AdBlocker and AntiTrack so in theory you don't need additional extensions, I have yet to test the effectiveness of these but will give them a bash. I went for the bare bones install so haven't bothered with the mail and other optional features. It does seem to mangle some webpage formats, so at the moment I don't feel like making it the default browser. Other possible alternatives : Waterfox CCleaner Browser probably the same as Avast! Y
  5. I was using it on the Linux Mint machine and for a while it was fine. Then after an update it just locked up solid and nothing I could do would get it working again. This is the point when I dumped it. I never got round to running it on Windows and it looks as if they've got a new version anyway. My understanding was it was for Opera purists who didn't like the current development path of Opera. If you're looking for a secure browser the best seems to be Tor the odd drawback seems to be that as it's so secure that while law enforcement can't see what your looking it, they can however tell
  6. Both websites still up but Digital Defender brings up a security warning saying that their security certificate has expired 141 days ago as of today. Their shop website also describes the product as : Which doesn't fill me with enthusiasm. Preventon still looks to be active.
  7. April 29, 2020 Cliqz had to shut down and while the browser still works there are no updates or security fixes, so it's probably a bit of a liability now. I kept it for the YouTube downloader but their new security protocols seem to have circumvented it and it's now fairly useless. My suggestion, look for an alternative.
  9. Thought I'd try a variation on a theme, the music threads obviously not interesting everybody (both of you). So check out this recipe from the US of A. I'm sure Irene will be dashing out to the butcher to try them on her male relatives and friends.
  10. I like the music and the video shows that there are people living in parts of this world so different it could be another planet. PS loving the furry didgeridoo, though what it does for the acoustics I can't say.
  11. Is it worth it I wondered to myself ? Even -pops- seems to have disappeared into the void, then I considered who am I really doing this for me or you lot ? Yep this futile continuation of something I used to do on a now defunct forum is entirely for my self gratification.
  12. As the final submission day got closer my 92 year old mother was getting worried about the official notification or to be more precise the lack of one. Speaking to my brother yesterday he mentioned that his had turned up on Saturday. So we paused and waited, it finally appeared in this mornings post, now Mum is fully compos mentis and more than capable of dealing with most bureaucrats. She is however a complete computer Luddite and doesn't do the internet so giving her six days to sort it online or face a fine is bloody minded stupidity of an amazing degree. Fortunately when we realised t
  13. In the apparent absence of breathing Windows forum members, particularly ones with a LaserJet, may I suggest a more printer focused alternative forum perhaps. Click Here As the active members of this forum can now be counted on the fingers of one hand, alternatives should be worth consideration.
  14. Just in case you think my musical taste is irremediably terrible, here is another artist I have a soft spot for and she is as far from terrible as you can get.
  15. Been a while since I engaged in any gratuitous Potus bashing, how remiss of me. Sayonara El Presidente, whatever good you achieved wiped out by a refusal to refute extreme right wingers and the lunatic fringe as long as they were useful and to cap it all a ridiculous and increasingly desperate attempt to overthrow the democratic process.
