Re: Question for you Firefox People

Many, many years ago, I loaded an extra font, Dom Casual, onto one of my previous computers. Every time I've upgraded, I've loaded it onto the new machine. I've had no problems whatsoever with using and seeing it, till the latest version of Firefox came along. Previous Firefox versions were okay. T...

Re: Strange shops in your area

http://dixonsdiscountwarehouse.co.uk/ It sells an excruciatingly wide range of goods and services: white goods, mobility scooters, TVs, dried produce, pick 'n' mix, oddly named toys, a tanning bed, a photo printing service, a photocopying service, Christmas lights, tabards, hi-vis jackets, a café, a...

Re: iTunes are having a big announcement

Or a drawer. Or inside a computer case somewhere (that's where I've taken to putting gubbins - knew there was a good reason buying an ATX case and an mATX motherboard!). Or, hell, if you're only after the MP3s, how about putting it on eBay - and if that's too much of a pain just stick it in the blo...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Sorry Bilky - what exactly is wrong with the Carpetright logo in that GSV picture you've linked to? Looks fine to me. And just because a logo is made up of two different fonts and mixing small and capital letters, doesn't mean it isn't one word. http://www.freeview.co.uk/var/freeview/storage/images...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Off topic but Carpetright annoy the hell out of me. I have never seen a national chain who have as little regard to their branding. They will stretch and squeeze the logo on signs to take up the full space on the sign. http://images.carpetright.co.uk/carpetright_uk/skin/frontend/default/summit_carp...

Bear in mind the 2GB file size limit for FAT32ing. Yes, it is a verb.
It's a 2GB file size limit for FAT16, 4GB for FAT32.

Re: Revenge!

I need to get revenge, but I need your help to come up with a cunning plan... Why revenge you ask, are you sitting comfortably, then I'll begin. It all began a few months ago when a work colleague offered to pop to the shops to grab some lunch, when he returned with a vast array of food and drink g...

This may be of some use.

Also, if you have a dimmer switch, try replacing it with a straight on/off switch, as dimmers can cause problems with fittings.

Re: Tell me about netbooks

I don't think it is inappropriate for me to ask them to open the box. I wouldn't be embarrased. However, I think it is silly: if the product is not working, it can be returned; the product's suitability can be ascertained via the display model. If it is a product that can't be viewed via the displa...
