    Re: Files / folders on left task bar?

    I have been using Fences for years, and wouldn't be without it. I never understood why Microsoft didn't put something similar (or identical) in Windows.

    Re: How long do your laptops last?

    What does the question actually mean? I have just junked my wife's 6-year old Asus F555LA, which was painfully slow, because a suspicious bulge suddenly appeared on the keyboard panel, displacing the...

    Re: Toner - never ending

    Certainly can be. When my HL-2270DW was due for a new drum as well as toner it was cheaper to replace it with a new HL-2375DW, basically the same printer with a more swept-up presentation (LCD...

    My wife and I are Group 3, and I have been grumbling about the apparent shambolic nature of the vaccination rollout. Anyway, we were finally told that bookings were open, either via the 0800 number...

    Re: Nasty Family members

    Losing your husband is quite bad enough, you don't need this extra hassle.

    At times like this, often the best thing to do is don't respond. Just let things rest for a while. The other party might...

    A detail that has not been mentioned so far: Maori are not, and never were, "cavemen".

    The title of your post suggests that one way to solve your problem might be to re-calibrate the way you see the world and how other people live.

    O gawd! Not this one again...
    The link in the OP post doesn't work so I can't see the video, but it sounds like the old 'plane on the conveyor belt' again.

    Re: Earthquake

    Slept through it here in Wellington, but in the morning noticed several pictures on the walls were skew.

    The later shakes had no effect here either.

    Off the top of my head, there's Gimp - never used it much but many find it good, and it's free.

    Just when 2020 looked like a complete write-off, the Boston Dynamics robots saved the day!

    Re: Thunder Bird Email problems

    That's a bit hair-raising. I have been using Thunderbird for years without any problems (other than those of my own making). I am now on 78.5.1 and I thought the .1 update followed the .0 rather...

    Very likely all those were contributing factors. The situation in NY as reported in the news was clearly bad but it is still a shock to put numbers to it.
