  • Here's my ten cents for what it's worth. Well ... ten cents, I suppose. I bought a Dell 5K monitor and an Nvidia Quadro K4200 dual DP card to go with it. As this display was an upgrade from a 2.5K ...
  • Yes, I rather missed the point you were making. Thanks for the detailed and well explained reply.  Being a gear forum, we sometimes (or at least I sometimes do) get carried away by tech specs and ...
  • Very nice shots, PK. I always enjoy your photos. You say you were trying to make your "5DMKIV do what it does best". Can I ask (and this is NOT a deliberately provocative question) what it is ...
  • Great shots, George. I love the one with the Lorys. I've stood with a flock of those all over me at the Birdpark here in Singapore. Great fun!
  • Thanks for the links, Eric.  I might have mentioned that I had the FRG-7700 also before I replaced it with the 8800. I liked that model a lot. It still used the mechanical, analogue variable ...
  • Replied in DriveGLEAM
    I remember using a CAT interface via a Com port for my SW radio back in my DXing days and still have an old Yaesu FRG-8800 laying around. I used to really enjoy RTTY and WEFAX decoding. Might ...
  • Replied in DriveGLEAM
    Thanks for the link, Eric. I hadn't seen this one. I use "Activity Indicator"    http://www.georgousis.info/ to provide an HDD light on my HP Windows tablet and it work very well.  I will certainly ...
  • Thanks. I think age is really catching up with me!
  • Created discussion thread NetworkList ProfileName incorrect
    Can anyone tell me why the Profile name of my wired LAN connection keeps getting changed to my wi-fi connection name? eg Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows ...
  • Apologies to all who replied on this. I was wrong. Turns out that my mobo HDD LED works just fine with the M.2 SSD. I imagine all the boards with M.2 sockets do the same. I originally tested the ...
  • Thanks, I'm already using the software type indicators on my tablet. This PC is a Linux machine and I want to find a way of implementing a hardware LED.
  • Created discussion thread No drive activity light with M.2 SSDs
    Are there any electronics experts out there who can tell me if there's a way to implement a hardware LED drive activity light that would work with a PC motherboard that takes an on-board M.2 SSD? I ...
  • According to the press reports, some people are saying that their files - documents or whatever - got deleted after the upgrade. Who really knows what's going on with people who (I'm assuming) ...
  • I hear you. I'm much of the same opinion. Retired, no children and no-one I can think of who would bother looking at my photos.   All the same, there's a compulsion to cling on to things - photos, ...
  • Fine if you have multiple backups.  You have to wonder at the apparently large number of people still not doing regular backups. Perhaps less capable or less savvy users in some cases but then ...
  • Created discussion thread Windows 10 1809 Update pulled
    Did anyone here encounter any problems with lost data/files with this update before MS pulled it? I have an HP tablet with Insider Preview Fast ring updates with 1809 (18252.1000) running with no ...
  • Thanks fanga.  I couldn't find a fix so I bit the bullet and updated all my machines to 62. I wanted to keep 49 on one PC as there were some add-ons that weren't compatible with 62 but what the ...
  • Created discussion thread Importing Firefox bookmarks
    Does anyone know if there is some reason why I can't Export bookmarks from Firefox 62 to an HTML file and then Import them into Firefox 49?   (I have a reason for wanting to keep 49 on one of my ...
  • Nice one!
