Re: kids and computers

Why not pull the HD out of the other one if it has an os already on it for use as the c drive and set the other HD as the d drive? the other one is brand new... I was rather hoping to sell it for half price with 9 months guarantee intact... I have ordered an SSD for the new build...it wouldn't be s...

Re: kids and computers

thanks Ant I've refused the fortnite thing for ages, for exactly the reasons you mention. I finally gave in after my eldest told me the grand children are all on now because the fortnite people have tightened up their act and security is being monitored.

Re: spooky

I interrogated the tiler.. he had no idea how his phone new my name. It transpires that his phone is a Samsung. I searched for the Hiya app that Nick mentioned and it appears that the app is available on all Samsung mobiles. I'm quite curious how HiYa found me, but that's obviously another story.......

ebay from china

A thought occurred to me today(during the corona crisis). Will there be a holdup of freight flights out of China at the moment, as a consequence of the lock down on travel?.
