  1. I'm stunned, how can anybody not love a Finnish metal band dressed as Dinosaurs ? Truly universal I'd have thought.
  2. Well here we are again, time for my monthly contribution to the mausoleum perpetuation fund. Call me the Windowsforum Necromancer.
  3. When my last Windows PC went belly up I purchased a cheap PC without an OS and put Linux Mint on it. Mint is designed to be familiar to Windows users. This setup was only ever going to be temporary until I got together the funds to go Windows again. many many years down the line and I'm still using it. There is a learning curve but it isn't too steep and adding peripherals while not as easy as Windows is no longer a pain in the posterior. It depends what software you want to run, the download comes with Browsers, Media players, Office suite and pretty much everything you'll need. There's also loads of Linux programs and games that are available free via the built in Software manager. You can if you wish run Windows programs using the Wine Emulator but I've never found it entirely faultless and some programs don't much like it. Point being if you're a gamer or using some specifically windows programs then Linux isn't perfect but if you want the PC for Browsing, Document creation media playing etc it does pretty much everything you want. My suggestion would be to try a copy running it from a USB stick it'll let you have a rummage through Linux without changing your existing setup as well as confirming that your system can handle the latest version. If you decide to load Linux remember you'll need a cabled internet connection during install so it can pick up drivers for Wi-Fi and any other connected hardware.
  4. Another month passes and I take the opportunity to wish you a happy new year.
  5. Just in the off chance that any of the old gang should: A. Be still breathing B. Come over all nostalgic at this festive time of year and wonder if there's any signs of life here. I offer festive wishes for health and good cheer and just to prove that I'm still a degenerate reprobate some entirely inappropriate smut.
  6. True, got the CD somewhere, though it is collecting dust and hasn't been up to speed in a player for years. Too true, modern elevator musak, generic stuff that could be from any one of a dozen indistinguishable modern popstrels, male or female. In one ear out the other without registering as it passed through.
  7. Nik Kershaw ? and you were doing so well up to that point. As for Nick Drake, nice but of the Drake siblings I'd rather watch his sister.
  8. Time for the monthly non spam post, this time I combine Nice with Rocky and a lady I had the pleasure of seeing at the NEC, more years ago than either I or she would care to contemplate. Though it must be said she wears them way better than I do.
  9. I've tried nice stuff, with limited success so here's something lound N narsty !
  10. Happens to me with Chrome and I haven't pinned it down yet, though it looks as if something is running a background cookie sweep.
  11. Just got back from the carvery, no foil but the food bag's got enough beef for two days sandwiches and mums cheesecake is in a convenient plastic box. Waste not want not
  12. Another feeble attempt to provide CPR to this forum.
  13. I also note AlanHo & andsome have stuck their nose through the door, greetings one and all.
  14. Just a little something for the loyal staff members still policing the dead zone. A post that isn’t SPAM and doesn’t contain any rubbish, but could be an entertaining diversion for a few minutes. Have a good day and If I’m feeling keen or at a spectacular loose end I may stick my head through the door again in another month or so.
  15. Five new members in less than twenty four hours, does this surge in activity mark the rise from torpor of this forum, or will there be a sudden flood of posts advertising Abdullah Singh's drive in proctology clinic in downtown Shimla ? Or perhaps having joined they will suffer severe memory issue, forget they filled out the form and vanish into the data-sphere never to be heard from again. All will be revealed, or possibly not. Just toon in same Bat time same Bat channel for the exciting denouement of this Bat cliffhanger !
  16. You must have caught us on an off day. Maybe that's why everybody left, excessive friendly causing rotting of the gums and throbbing nadgers.
  17. 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 !
  18. Clearly you have come down with Trumps disease, aka small hand syndrome.
  19. True and if things don't pick up there'll be another only much much longer. I assumed as much, now me I lack the remaining staff members stoic dedication to duty and if it as it increasingly appears I'm just wasting my time and yours I'll call it a day.
  20. True but at the moment not relevant as I am not responsible for the uncharacteristic silence from the man in question. I am also not responsible for the current trend of mute visitations from forum staff and other occasional members who have given up posting here. Like you I've tried seeding the forum with a variety of posts in the hope of eliciting a reaction of some kind, with Gandalphs passing things have gone from bad to worse and getting a response of any kind is now near impossible. Sad to say but I think it's time for somebody to change it to "Windowsforum Gone But Not Forgotten".
