    Re: Need a good programme to stop pop up ads

    Yeah, the latest Firefox is pretty good at blocking many ads and trackers. Malwarebytes has additional ad/tracker blocking which covers the rest quite nicely.

    Re: Buzzing Issues

    Yeah, heat, or a fan, or a bad capacitor.
    When a fan goes noisy it also slows down due to going out of balance. Often just gently touching the centre of the spinning fan will temporarily correct the...

    I had a drive permanently write protect itself as a result of detecting a fault. In theory, it's to save the users precious data. In reality it just made the stick utterly useless. I tried the...

    Re: External HDD issue

    This issue seems vaguely familiar to an issue I've had in the past, but I can't recall the exact hardware, or the solution.

    I'm thinking it related to the USB cable being too long (or faulty),...

    Re: Printer Error after Jam

    I once pulled apart a laser printer. Can't recall if the intention was to fix it or just to be nosey inside a dead unit.

    Re: Does anyone know what type of plug this is?

    Looks like a phone charger to me, but the scale against your thumb makes it look a bit too wide for a phone jack.

    Re: Picture format

    Check the file size. If it's 30KB or less it's likely just junk HTML, or maybe a logo that was attached to an email, in which case it's likely not what you want, and not worth your effort.

    Re: Kenny Rogers

    Reported as a death from natural causes, so likely not a Covid-19 victim. 5 kids and 5 wives, with #5 being quite the looker. Probably died with a big smile.
