  1. At a guess I would say that the new TV has only attempted to tune the digital channels and not the analogue. The Sky signal will almost certainly be using an analogue frequency. Go into the Setup/TV Tuning and choose Analogue.
  2. It's not too hard Unfortunately it has to be done by an Admin. They have already been notified so you will hopefully get a response soon.
  3. Had an amazing time at the party. Where was everybody?
  4. Seem to have lost my copy of the Shetland (Zetland) database. if anybody happens to have a copy they could link to I would be most happy.
  5. *Disengage Stealth* Hallo *Re-engage Stealth*
  6. Pretty sure it won't affect the blind too much. Apart from the fact that the cost has now come to light (ahem), they have probably realised that they have been paying far too much on their rates bill. I have never been a big fan of street lights. The cost of supply, maintenance and upkeep is one thing but when the street lights are spaced so close together that they give you more light than a normal Shetland day then things are wrong. I commented years ago that a simple cure to solve a lot of the issues would be to replace dead bulbs with energy efficient down lit LED's. By having them only spread the light downwards it would appease the dark skies bunch and by replacing them periodically it would have cost virtually nothing compared to the problems that are being exercised now. I feel a Hollywood poster coming up...
  7. Your post has probably persuaded many people to keep more schools open. Thank you.
  8. - I hiv been cross-referencin' da spellin' wie J J Grahams interpretation in da auld Shetland Dictionary. Dinna blame me!

  15. Anyone is capable of hiding in the dark when they are not there.
  16. Read that wrong. Was expecting to see a puppy webcam.
  17. Not surprised anybody is confused about computer specs to be honest. The IT market goes to great lengths to keep the general public confused. That way they will keep on spending money on machines with power that they will never actually use. Intel decided to 'streamline' their processor range by bringing out the i3, i5 and i7 processors. Simple really.... i3 is Entry Level i5 is Mid Range i7 is Pro Except it isn't. Each processor has a range within it. Some of the i5 processors are faster than the i7's. The end consumer doesn't realise this, and they have no need to. I do take exception to tha fact that Intel processors are miles better than AMD's without any explanation. As the two main CPU manufacturers out there, they both tend to take turns as to who has the fastest/bestest chips around. Sometimes Intel has the stronghold, sometimes AMD does. Neither are worse in that respect, it just depends what is available on the market at the time.
  18. Correct. However, if the machine has actually hung on updates then nothing but rebooting it will stop that. To say that it has probably caused another problem is unlikely. If that was the case then you would more than likely see symptoms at boot. Chances are you will get windows moaning at you the next time you go to shutdown to tell you that there are updates to be installed. If that continues then, yes you have a problem. One or more of the updates are failing to install for some reason. Could be sausage all but it could be something more serious. Guessing that by now you would have found out whether it was or not.
  19. FAINTS! Pooks is still alive! Edit: Oops, just noticed the year he posted. Still da da fore. Joost hoidin' in da darkness. Moved house. New flagpole up and now pretty much all of the local golf course can see it.
