Re: Miscellaneous DIY Projects (or bits of jobs)

( you lot are good at packing things into small spaces) I suppose it could be described as a sun deck, the rest of the yard is on a slope (the car is parked on half of it).

I use the Snipping Tool in Windows 10 which gives much more control. The screenshot I did for this thread was on my phone, a simultaneous press of the volume down and power switches.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Some of my colleagues returned to the office over the last few weeks, this has now changed and it is now officially closed again. I can see this being the case until well into 2021. I chose to continue working at home which suits me nicely :good:
