  1. A day or so late but I doubt anybody noticed or cared overmuch, here goes with the September donation to the anti tedium fund. Hiryu High School Wadaiko Club-The 2nd National High School Taiko Koshien Grand Prize Mt. Fuji Taiko Festival
  2. And with a fizzle not a bang it ends, I did rejoin to say a few farewells but in common with all users we've been anonymized and I am now officially " Anon-2462831 ". I did post a link here but as we've not had any new accounts set up since Barbican 75 in April and he/she has proven a person of few words, it looks as if we've not pulled in any new blood.
  3. Perhaps you should drop them a link and invite them over here ? Neither forum exactly prospering but unless Craig decides to pull the plug we do at least have a viable platform that forum users could migrate to. Just a thought.
  4. Looks as If I jumped ship just in time as Techadvisor forum has just announced it's closing up shop on 2nd September. Can't say I'm surprised, after the last redesign of the website the forums vanished from the main toolbar and were consigned to the bottom of a dropdown menu on the "More" tab. Hardly the best spot if you actually have any interest in people finding and using it. This design faux pas was pointed out by several users including yours truly but was never corrected, which rather confirmed that the powers that be had lost interest and wanted an excuse to bury it.
  5. Not bad all things considered particularly for ninety two, still fully compos mentis. We go out shopping every week but have yet to resume the weekly dining out at a hostelry of her choice. We talk about it but I think she's still a bit wary of the covid situation so it keeps getting put off. We will have another think on it next week. You ?
  6. So you live in the real world, that explains a lot. Me I'm unsure, I think I may be fictional or perhaps a figment of your imagination. In which case may I suggest that you need a rest as coming up with something like me is a clear sign of a deranged mind.
  7. Depends on the Internet speed at your end, but some reports suggest the download is 4GB so it could take a while. There are also suggestions that the development path for 2004 has been far from smooth with a handy supply of bugs, many seem to have taken quite some time to fix. So unless you really want the security update it seems best practise to leave it as long as possible and have other users debug it for you and let Microsoft iron out the nasties before you bite the bullet. https://www.computerworld.com/article/3561635/bumps-on-the-road-to-the-win10-version-2004-rollout.html#:~:text=It's a big update - 4,down easy over many connections. https://www.computerworld.com/article/3199077/windows-10-a-guide-to-the-updates.html
  8. Not sure I understand that as the clip was definitely there when originally posted, I could see it. I have successfully inserted an alternative which I'm sure the absentee contingent would enjoy were they not frequenting the optimistically titled Overfifties.
  9. Looked at it with various browsers on Linux and Windows and so far can't insert the youtube code successfully. I'll take another shot next month before applying my life motto;-
  10. Not on my Linux machine it doesn't All I can see in your post is a text box showing the url, must unlimber the Windows machine see if it looks different. As the first clip went AWOL try this.
  11. Well that answers that one, No it doesn't work. Rats. Try this link
  12. This time I avoid foisting my idiosyncratic music tastes on you poor masochists, so I've unearthed a comedy classic from back in the day. <iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/LbL7B5cas0s" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> I note there seems to be a change in the way this forum handles embed codes, let's hope it works.
  13. Yup, I was walking down the steps from the front door when I spotted something green disappearing under the garage door. quick root around in a pile of bottles and an odds and sods box and there it was. Our next door neighbours just had their somewhat unruly field mowed and I suspect it was evading the tractor. I gently steered him/her out and onto the front lawn where it vanished pretty quickly.
  14. If you suffer from Ophidiophobia, avoid this post !
  15. Once again the 13th of the month rolls around and I'll drop off my latest in memoriam post. Enjoy. Or maybe not, such is life.
  16. All hunky dory here, I put Mum under lockdown a good week before Boris got his act together. Although she's not on any official high risk register I decided that at 91 and having had a mini stroke a couple of years ago I wasn't taking any chances. We're slowly easing off and as she was going stir crazy and needed the exercise she now gets a weekly walk around a shopping emporium of whatever type takes her fancy but we're all wearing trendy masks cleaning the shopping trolley and dousing ourselves with copious dollops of disinfectant hand gel when we get back to the car. This is Mums, funky init ? Mine's a bit less girly, they're not surgical standard but as they're mainly to stop asymptomatic spreaders coughing and sneezing the lurgee all over the shop, should be OK. Sorry to hear about your health issues, you take care. Leave the experimentation with the afterlife to Gandalph, Doug and Pat.
  17. System duplicated my post, probably a stuck relay in the switchboard or maybe rust on the connections .
  18. Hey ho it's that time of month again so try this.
  19. Behold Amabie a Japanese Yokai whose image has miraculous powers to cure contagion. Very popular in the nineteenth century, Amabie has made a big comeback in the modern pandemic, so in order to provide assistance in today's chaos I provide your very own anti viral monster picture. Now I'll handily admit it may not be that helpful and I'm not aware of any reputable clinical trials. It is however guaranteed to be less harmful to you than following Donald Trumps advice and drinking disinfectant.
  20. It's an odd look but Maria Franz can carry it off.
  21. Let's forget the heavyish rock which is my comfort zone and get weird in a big way. Very Mahler. NOT. Hang in there, it will get back to what we perceive as normal eventually.
  22. For those not in the know, Ron is the dynamic one with all the funky moves on keyboard.
  23. It's that time of month again, time for that bit of ephemeral stuff that the ever conscientious admins can peruse while de-spamming the old cadaver.
  24. The site used to offer some admin functions so that a poster could close a thread of their own creation. Somewhere over time and forum updates the feature went AWOL. I think you've done all you can with the current setup. I wouldn't worry about it, its not as if anybody's left to notice, everybody else has sodded off either to join the bleedin' choir invisible or some other forum.
  25. RAM requirements depend on what programs you will be running, have a look on their web pages and check out the RAM requirements of each. Total up the figures for whatever you're likely to run simultaneously and that'll give you the bare minimum.
