    Hi all, sorry to bother you with my trials and tribulations. I am going out sailing boats this morning and most of the afternoon, lovely weather here.
    I shall come back as though nothing has happened and see if they still bear a grudge!

    Of course they are Roy.
    Just like printers and scanners, which always play up just when you need them most, to meet deadlines, they ALL belong to the same union.
    Switching off your router and WLAN doesn't help. They simply hack a neighbours WLAN and carry on plotting.
    My old cable TV box worked fine for 10+ years with just a coax connection.
    The new one also needs an Internet connection, and thus commencetheth the conspiracy of the electronicals; freeze ups just before 'le grand denouement' of the film I'm watching - only way out the master restart (power down, wait 10+ secs, power up). But can I find a way to see the rest? Ha ha!
    Or try to change channels and just get an error message 'Network configuration error IP4'. Etc etc. Last week suddenly all my recordings were flagged 'Not available for replay'๐Ÿ˜ 
    Only way out a hard drive reformat๐Ÿ˜ญ
    It is war Roy, And the only probable winner is GOOGLE and all his tentacles๐Ÿค”

    They are in it together, I can't believe that my TV and the laptop are colluding in this!

    My TV demanded a re-start!
    I have never done a re-start on my TV, ever!
    It is time for bed and decide whether it is war or humiliation.

    Ed, that was lucky. I've been to 2 Citroรซn specialist garages that I have used for years and told me that all they can do is keep changing parts till they find the problem. The only guarantee is that its an electronic device problem.
    So I have now got a replacement vehicle as I couldn't trust the old one to not let me down.
    As I am a retired semi-disabled pensioner I have time to play with it at home in my own garage. So I'll play car doctor till I've checked everything and either fix it or break it for spares.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Over the years I have been confronted by new programs that the IT crowd describe as 'very powerful'. My internal auto-correct re-defines this as 'user aggressive'.

    I had a similar problem on a Ford Maverick some years back, in the end I told the Ford main dealer to take all their parts back in return my vehicle as it was when I eft it with them. They demanded that I paid before the released the vehicle. I went down to the dealership with a lawyers letter informing them that I would be claiming damages as well as the cost of a hire car. A picked up my car an hour later. The Ford Maverick was a re-badged Nissan Terrano so I took it to the Nissan dealership, the mechanic listened to the motor and told me he could fix it while I waited, the cost was ยฃ10. The problem was a perished rubber pipe and this was a known problem.

    Hi Colin garage techies are not what they were. I have a gentleman who maintains my car, you mention a fault and a car and he knows what it is!

    When you go to a showroom and see all the certificates around the wall have a look at the small print. It never says anyone 'passed' a course only that they attended one.
    Well I attended an expectant mothers course 'back in the day'.......

    Not just personal comps, having spent nearly ยฃ500 to get my car through the annual mot. Only to have it start warning me of a problem with the DPF. So took it to my local garage to be told no fault showing on the computer, another ยฃ60. Asked if they could fix it??? Answer don't know, if the computer isn't showing a fault then it's trial and error, cost???
    Answer, how long is a piece of string.
    Went on line looking for answers, so far spent another ยฃ200 on various sensors and special tools.
    Last option is a replacement ECU, ยฃ600. ????
    WHO NEEDS PROGRESS.
    Let me loose on a Morris minor any day.
    Cheers Colin. ๐Ÿค”

    Hi Scratchb.... I never really migrated from fractions! I did end up working in several different counting systems, binary, Octal, bini-ten and a crazy French calculator with a negative value in its presentation of binary numbers. But then they also made eccentric cog wheels!

    Do try fractions again I use them for all calculations for model boats, a better way of changing scales etc. Much easier to do in your head, although I usually fall asleep soon after!

    Also why is the P so close to the O on the keyboard and another thing I get my tablets on the NHS!
    When I was a Learning Support person at our local infant school any technical problems were resolved by my 7 year old class Guru.
