Glutton …


I'm forever downloading free apps for my phone, iPad and even my laptop. I hear or see someone mention some piece of software or app and immediately think "... that might be useful or fun or whatever ..." They very rarely are and I usually end up uninstalling the things and questioning what I was … Continue reading Glutton …

Internet abuse …


You may be aware that I work part-time in a local café. One of the many features of this café, is their free Wi-Fi. The access code is displayed for anyone to use if you know where to look.

It comes in three’s …


Luck, that is. Or so people say. Well If it’s right, then I’ve just had my ‘three’ with eBay.

But we still managed to get … Continue reading It is getting there …

Can’t believe it worked …


This might get a little bit 'techy' so look away now, if you're uninterested. The youngest son has two laptop computers. He has an old Windows 7 machine that he keeps in his bedroom. He uses it to watch YouTube videos, and that's about all. His other machine is a Windows 10 laptop that he … Continue reading Can’t believe it worked …
