    Hope your phone port works better than a friend of mine. He went from Vodafone to one of the power companies. Internet was fine but no phone for 6 weeks. Apparently Vodafone handed the number...

    Agree HPs are good. Had a few paper jams over the years but not too frequent, maybe one every 6 months or so. Bought a HP IP to parallel printer server to go with it.

    Re: RIP: A Death has occurred in the family.

    Just finished the backup with Macrium Reflect Free and the image size is 170GB which is what I would expect it to be with compression of files.

    One thing I noticed after I had installed Win 10 was that in the BIOS the Advanced Peripherals was set to IDE (the default) rather than AHCI. I read somewhere that that you should use AHCI for...
