  1. New Forum Area?

    I would be interested in reading, but not posting as my musical knowledge is limited..
  2. A simple request

    Modern gas boilers over here don't have pilot lights, they light electronically when the water or heating comes on. We legally have to have condenser boilers on new istallations. They use much less gas.
  3. A simple request

    Our heating, water and space heating is from piped natural gas. They sell it by KWH, the meters register cubic metres and the convert it via calorific value and by some mathematical mumbo jumbo to kilowatt hours, Back in the old days of coal gas the meter read it in cubic feet and that was what it was sold in. We knew what it meant then.
  4. Man and His Labor

    I can't remember the exact quote, but Martin Luther said something like "What you do on earth is as if you did it for God in heaven. It may seem a small thing when a maid carries out her chores but it is a far greater thing than all the works of monks and nuns for there is no commandment from God." I was once with a friend in our firm's staff canteen, when he said that lady over cleaning the tables over there, I think she is a Christian , I think she is doing that for the Lord.I saw a black lady looking very cheerful as she wiped the tables. He went and chatted to her and said she was a Christian.

    Prawn salad this evening.
  6. London Tower block fire

    I saw my s i l yesterday evening I asked him about it and he said he is very busy, leaving before 6.00 in the morning and getting home later in the evening. Most of the information he has is not for the public at present as it is still being investigated.
  7. Revived laptop

    I can't try it yet as the output is DV and I gave my DV to HDMI cable to our church for connection to the Projector. I will try and borrow it back. It has 2 video ports but I don't have the drivers for them. I used my TV as the monitor.
  8. 2Thessalonians 2:7?

    You don't need to go back the 1600's, just look at The British Passport, which puts this rather quaintly. Her Britanic Majesty's Secretary of State Requests and requires in the Name of Her Majesty all those to whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary. So Let is still in use in that sense, even though its use may be limited.
  9. London Tower block fire

    Govt. announced today that new tower bloks over 30 metres high have to have sprinkler fitted. ampaigners and the fire brigade have said they should be fitted in all blocks. They thought that cladding was not flamable, but they were wrong.
  10. Revived laptop

    I Have never noticed it but if I had I probably would not have pressed it in case it did soemthing I didn't want it to. Some years ago I got Ubuntu on a PC magazine cover disk. You could set it up to run from a DVD or install it on a PC or dual boot with Windows. I tried the first and last. Both seemed to work, but having done that I had no idea how to operate it, so I could only use the apps that came with it, Open Office etc. But I did not know about drivers, for printer etc, or how to install extra sofware and had no one I could ask. I tried looking on Linux Forums but it all seemed too technical for me, so I eventually gave up. I just remembered I have an old desktop running XP media edition, I was going to ditch it but may see if I can get Linux running on that.
  11. London Tower block fire

    Exactly. Trouble is the police etc are going through the ruins with a fine tooth comb as it were. The relatives cannot understnd that. I did send an email to my s-i-l but haven't received answer.

    Thanks Bro I never even noticed it before.
  13. Revived laptop

    Thanks bro, I tried that and it didn't work. I tried rebooting to no avail. I also tried rwin and also just win but neither of those worked either. So I will just be happy with using SHIFT and ALT GR.. Do you know what the key Net to the right CTRL is called and what it does, it is a box with 3 horizontal lines in it? I looked on an old keyboard and it looks slightly different on that. That has an extra smaller box above making it look similar to a calculator with a curved arrow going from the bottom to the top box.
  14. Whats for Supper...

    I had Roast Beef yesterday, leftover Roast Beef today, and guess what? I just found out that we are having Roast Beef at our seniors lunch tomorrow. Today Roast Beef with Dijon style potatoes Steamed carrot and green beans, Dijon potatoes are sliced and precooked (steamed in my case), then added finely chopped shallots, chervil and chives, in cream with Dijon Mustard and lemon juice topped with grated cheese and baked for ½ hour or so, until brown on top.

    I would like to change the compose key to the WIN key. I had a page which told you how to do it, but I managed to close the page down while I was trying to follow the instructions
