  1. Lock screen

    Yea I have had this happen a few times, very annoying. No 'official' way of getting rid of the lock screen, this is because windows 10 is designed to work on both desktops and tablets (on which you would want a lock screen). Are a few 'hacks' you can try: https://www.cnet.com/uk/how-to/how-to-disable-the-windows-10-lock-screen/
  2. Frustrating weekend comming up weather wise of the region. With the low to the east of us just close enough to feed showers into out area. I'm up London all weekend for Open House, looks like will need an umbrella whilst queuing!
  3. At least tomorrow looks a bit better, brighter and dry for most, maybe just the odd scattered shower:
  4. Yea i'm the same, got a week off work next week and would rather things were looking better. Not going away but if its raining then i'm stuck inside and got no excuse not to do the decorating that my wife is nagging me to do
  5. Need to keep an eye on next Saturday, defiantly looking Autumnal at the moment.
  6. Cetertainly looks an interesting book Oliver, will pick up a copy of the e book in a couple of days . just on a side note, you might want to update the info on the paperback page as looks out of date now:
  7. Medical issues

    yea thats what was trying to say, if the cataract is not effecting lifestyle then no real need to risk removing them (however small the risk). Maybe optimal is the wrong word more a crossover when the negative effects outweigh the risks / time etc of removing them.
  8. Medical issues

    Glad it went well for you @ciel, both my mum and father in law have had their Cataract removed and they were equally impressed on how quick the processes was, especially compared to what it was like in the past. @Daryl Dixon my mum not being able to drive in the dark was the main factor that got my mums op pushed up the list, she lives in a remote area with little public transport, so needed to drive to get about so needed the operation sooner as it was effecting her mobility and lifestyle. So defiantly a route to take in saying that his life is being effected by not being able to drive. apparently there is a on optimum time of the Cataract development that they like to remove them, too soon and the risk of infection or other side effects outweighs the reduced vision, and this could be what his doctor is basing his decision on.
  9. Other Sporting Discussion

    How a man who has been banned for dopping not once but twice can even be in the stadium to have a chance of winning a major athletics championship is beyond me...what sort of message are we sending to the next generation of Athletes?
  10. Action Cameras

    Been hunting around for a cheap action camera, something that can let the kids use during the holidays without worrying about if they break it. Picked up the Floureon Aaction Camera for £30. https://www.amazon.co.uk/FLOUREON-Waterproof-Wide-Angle-Camcorder-Accessories/dp/B01IGYDJOA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1501315625&sr=8-1&keywords=floureon+action+cam Even though it markets its self as a 4k camera naturally at this price point it is not 'real' 4k and to be honest the 4k is not usable. It does offer 1080p at 60fps which many of the low-cost cameras do not. Still playing around with it but the footage is not that bad bearing in mind the price point, below is some stationary footage at the various resolutions: This is 1080p 60fps with some basic Luts applied, so there is some limited potential to improve the image if you have the time/software/inclination to play around with grading: If you are after high-quality footage then this is not the camera for you and your budget needs to be a lot higher; but if you are just after something to use around the pool or beech on holiday with out worrying if it gets lost/broken or a dash cam (has a loop record function), then it is not bad for the price.
  11. Boxing thread.

    Can't believe this is actually going to go ahead: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/40577417 Well, I can in a way because is going to make people a lot of money, but its nothing more than that. Can't see how it benefits either man or their sports long term. Plus reportedly $99 to watch on PPV!!
  12. Had a few rumbles here overnight but was just too far north to get anything else. 9.6mm of rain overnight though.
  13. Beautiful day to have off work today, reached 25.5c making it the hottest day of the year so far.
  14. Ended up with 36mm of rain yesterday making it the wettest day I have recorded on my station since June 2016
  15. Was a lovely day yesterday plenty of sunshine and feeling warm with a high of 21c. Wet start today with it looking like will need to take umbrellas on the school run for this first time in a while. Wednesday still looking like the wettest day of the working week.
