It may be easier for them, but there is still a considerable amount of people selling unwanted items

Five items sold using eBay
The only gripe is the fees from PayPall and eBay itself. Good thing about the last sale is that I didn't have to go through Paypal to get my money. It was paid and collected in person this time

You're stuck in one of Richies bootloops now Glam.  :grin:

No idea. I believe that there are main and secondary beta testers. What they needed so this didn't happen was a gang of normal people on normal rigs doing normal stuff to test it. This problem would have popped up very quickly.
The thing is that the beta testers reinstall Windows often, so rather than having to swap data back and forth they swap My Docs, etc, to their D: drive, installing on C: of course. The update didn't affect the D: drive so it wasn't spotted.

Some were complaining that it did pop up early, just Microsoft didn't pick up any feedback from the feedback hub, which makes me wonder what's the point of it if they don't read the comments from feedback?

I meant the update with the fix. I assume those who signed to techinsiders are the ones with the beta

4 To remain, its a whole lot less complicated for the UK. The Brexiters don't know diddly squat how the EU is run. Quite a few of the Brexiters want another referendum on the basis the campaign was run as a fraudulent campaign, and the NHS bus slogan was an appalling lie

I'm sure the US wants us to go hard, because they get a super deal from UK, at an enormous costs to the UK with hardly a superior quality that they get over there. I'm also meaning that they want to take our NHS and turn it in for  something for themselves

I can only assume they are testing it with beta, because they haven't released it yet

Even the new Ubuntu distro has been released

Missed my chances of getting a real cheap GTX 1080ti. One on ebuyers (not to be confused with ebay), going for in excess of £400

Got an appointment tomorrow for my bunged ear.
The receptionist asked what the issue related to and I said it was probably a congested eustachian tube, but she picked this up as 'gestation' tube (and I'm the one that's half deaf at the moment).  :cheesy:
I told her if I had one, then that would be a serious problem, given blokes don't normally have a uterus and explained it actually was, so she said she'd put it down as a sinus problem, because she could spell sinus.  :laugh:

I could hear laughter coming from next to the reception window and poked my head round, and it was my doctor going through some notes. :azn:

The problem is that a lot of people are confused these days with regards to uterus and all the trans thing that goes on these day, that is probably what she was thinking of
 :laugh:

I wish it was a simple for the problems I'm having in that area.


I have noticed an 18Mbps hike when I stopped my virus scanner, really have, it used to be 57ish-Mbps, when I did a speed test again, it went to 75 Mbps
What 'virus scanner' are you referring to?
If you're using Win 10 you've got Defender which is built in, negating any need for a third party anti-virus.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I've never heard of an anti-virus program throttling your Internet speed.


One that starts with a K

England were doing well with 0-3 up, until they let in two goals. But still managed to scrap a win

I think I may have found why the internet disconnects at times. It's the virus scanner. It also chokes the internet so I can't get a good YouTube stream

I was genuinely surprised at something the other day.
I recall Richie's housing problem and the rent levels he has to pay .

Scotland have built more council houses since 2013 than England has, despite being 1/10th of the population.
It's so surprising that even The Sun felt fit to report it (very briefly): https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/7457338/snp-nicola-sturgeon-council-houses/


This is not a political dig, but the mismatch is dramatic.
Why can we finance a tenfold council house build than England can manage?
Something isn't right.

These aren't Tory 'affordable housing' that you need to get a (£100k+) mortgage for I think, they seem to be  genuine council houses.  :shocked:

I don't normally read that rag, but it's interesting if true. My bruv was saying that if the inevitable happens with Brexit, then rents will go down in London. I can only see that happening if people do leave the country and the economy does go shit state
