Re: MYSTERY OBJECTS

Great minds think alike Kev ours will be similar. It will be a bit of a mixture tea now as we have just inherited the two Silsden grandchildren and they don't yet do a great range of the finer culinary treats. :extrawink: It will now involve pork sausages and alphabet potato croquettes.

Re: ILP Clarion House

Friends of Clarion House Family Fun Day and Barbecue tomorrow, Sunday 21st July. Hopefully it will stay fine, weather says there could be a fine break. We have Gazebo's but it's better if it's dry. I'm excused duties this year, (did the meat barbie last year, Sally did the veg one). Clarion House we...

Finally, a red letter day, (or two brown). One from the DVLA telling me that I am fit to drive and that they are sending me my licence.

Well, nothing has changed on the site in the last few weeks, we still have a pending maintenance upgrade that I am not actioning yet. Not changed anything else in the ACP.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Ian, would increasing the idle speed slightly help with the uphill reverse parking? That would have a knock on to on the flat creep and would be less efficient. I have an alternative of course I could reverse in downhill, that would only need the brake. :biggrin2: I would have to get used to approa...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Labrador dogs are effective in sensing some forms of cancer and there is an ongoing study for other breeds that may also be useful as indicator dogs. Remarkable really but is their sense of smell something like 10,000 times better than ours?

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Standard ASCII only uses 0 to 127. ALT 0146 is the Latin Dipthong on a UK character set. Which language and keyboard set are you using?

One table I have looked at does count character 39 as an apostrophe or a single quote, most do not.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

As Wendy says though Tiz the character is actually an apostrophe not a single quote so the behaviour of the spell checker is correct, space the apostrophe and it sees the word correctly. I assume you are using the character underneath the @? As stated above there is no single quote character in the ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Day two of back to driving. I will need more practice in reverse uphill parallel parking! A foible of the automatic gearbox in that on the flat it's an absolute doddle as in normal forward drive or reverse the car will "creep" with the only requirement being use of the brake. Uphill is a different k...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

You could have a point there as well Wendy, no single quotes on a standard QWERTY keyboard. I wonder if they are in the extended character set and accessible via their ASCII number? Just checked and single quote is not available in the ASCII character or extended set the latter being mainly printer ...

We had a similar problem with the internal emulsion colours that we got for the centre reported in another thread. We initially chose four from a Spring/Summer 2019 Dulux catalogue we had. Rocked up at B&Q and could only find one from four? Got another colour chart, looked the same and had the same ...
