    Re: He Gets My Vote!

    OK, I listened to that interview with Peter Williams. Andrew Hollis sounds a nice enough bloke, he doesn't rant or spout conspiracy theories, but then, he is standing for mayor so will be careful...

    Re: Win 10 SFC - corrupt system files?

    Thanks, your advice is always worth following.

    I ran dism as you specified, rebooted and then ran sfc. It reported that it had found corrupt files and fixed them. After a reboot and another sfc...

    Win 10 SFC - corrupt system files?

    Yesterday I was doing a rather large backup of data files when my desktop suffered a BSOD. The system restarted without further problem and I was able to complete the backup, but I decided to run...

    Re: Climate Change Emergency - Hysteria

    You take an interesting philosophical position. Because you cannot prove that something will occur in the future, you conclude that it will not happen. Your life must have been full of surprises!

    Re: Climate Change Emergency - Hysteria

    Point taken, but I can repeat a comment I made here some time ago. 'Climate change' and 'global warming' are different things linked by a cause-and-effect relation. You can have climate change...

    Re: Climate Change Emergency - Hysteria

    It's interesting how the climate change debate has developed on this forum (and elsewhere). With the honourable exception of B.M., most of the nay-sayers now seem to accept that the climate is...

    My cries of triumph were a bit premature. As I am sure everyone on this forum knows, the worst kind of problem in a complex system is the intermittent fault. Just about anything you do "fixes" it -...

    Re: What's your background image?

    Last year we stayed a couple of nights at Mt. Cook Hermitage and this is what we saw when we went into our room. I grabbed a shot from the balcony so I have a permanent record on the screen.
