FWIW, there are quite a few websites where you can buy (reasonably!) legit WIn and Office licences - whilst I bought the Win 11 licence from that US site (due to "misadvertising" I thought I was getting 3x licences for that price - but I didn't! :shock , I generally buy such licences from a UK site called Lizosoft. The Office 2021 Pro Plus (i.e. the "full fat" version) licence on this laptop came from there at 19.99 a few weeks ago!

I'll certainly check them out.

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, vintage lenses and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Lizosoft is here https://lizosoft.co.uk/

The only thing I should probably say is that, sometimes, you have to use the "telephone activation" route - and sometimes you don't (didn't with the Office installation!)!

Interesting views guys, My HP t630 winbox is happily rollimg along.

I'm getting my brain around the win11 changes, some of which seem to have been done just to confuse people, and am typing this on said system.

The external HD array is going to take some sorting, lack of room and too many caddies...

Returned home last night after a couple of days in Lancasster helping honesty decorate.
stayed in a hotel with good food and beer, the paint on the walls at Honesty's is fine and she's happy a different win this time.
Cheers, HG

Agreed - probably because some young(ish!) marketing person thought those changes looked good and added to the "appeal" of WIN 11 - but without considering what longtime Windows users would think and would need to "retrain" their brains for !

What a good idea - I did succumb to a couple of "Hop, Skip and Juice" cans last night - but I might just settle for a nice glass of Rioja tonight

I love wine (well, good wine) but just one glass sets off my gout, so I drink beer and get fatter and fatter.

Click the link above. "Do not try to do this at home". Wonderful find.

Nice video from Sigma, shame Youtube insist on showing inappropriate adverts...

It's enough to drive one to drink, but 10 in the morning might just be a little early for that.

Yes. The time that I needed to get up this morning after having had a bad night's sleep....

Maybe HG's correct, don't drink before 10.
