The letter would be picked up from Bracewell and taken via Skipton to the mail centre at Leeds. It would then travel overnight from Leeds to the Preston mail cen...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

I remember upgrading the memory on my Amstrad from 250k to 500k..... I bet it cost you a pretty penny too - look at how the prices of memory have fallen over the years. I remember 'upgrading' my Amiga by 1Mb and thinking how I had a world beating machine.....! :laugh5: https://www.oneguyfrombarlick...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Maybe this should be a 'forgotten corner' but this wonderful sculpture in Letcliffe Park by Stathis Dimitriadis from Leeds has sadly been vandalised. It was part of the Pendle Sculpture Trail and hopefully it can be repaired although it's been badly smashed. (It has been removed from the site in the...

the pedestrian crossing at Post Office Corner is having a funny do. It's stopping the traffic at random intervals even though nobody is there.
