Re: Change of Gallery Functionality

Itwas very useful if you were putting a series of pictures up. The bloke who took on the galley coding has a bit of catching up to do. Each time we have had and upgrade to the site software we have lost a bit of functionality in the gallery. Eventually it will cease working all together, we will hav...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

We had pizza for tea also. I made a meat one for Jack and myself and Sally had just a veggie one. I made the pizza dough in the bread maker. Toppings were, tomato paste and olive oil first on the base, coriander, fine sliced onion, then a layer of grated mozzarella, large sliced vine tomatoes, slice...

Re: Bikes You Have Owned and Loved

On our last bike, we had all mod cons so to speak and Sally used to sleep on the back when we were on long hauls. I will get to that later in the story. Our Dan could do the same as well. I once gave a lift to a lad who nearly had us off by trying to fight the bends by counterbalancing because he th...

Change of Gallery Functionality

I have only just noticed this change which I think arrived with the latest update to the site software. This upgrade rendered the gallery module not fully compatible with the latest phpBB platform. When you look at an image in the gallery viewer you can also see below the image, smaller previews of ...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Can't really see why that section should be asking for further credentials. It will only show you the IP address allocated from the router pool at the exchange. With the service switched off it would intimate that you are using an exclusive static IP address which can be costly for an ISP as they wo...

Re: Bikes You Have Owned and Loved

A potential spanner was thrown into the works which could have had a major impact on our plans for the Spring. The Arab-Isreali or "October War" was the spanner in this case. It created an immediate crisis for potential fuel supplies. Ration books were issued by the British government to combat petr...

That looks like an overview page and the figures look to have been rounded up. Unlikely that the rates are bang on 40 and 10. If there is a maintenance tab with further information you should see the actual connection speed. Various routers display the information using different terms. Maintenance ...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Excellent Gloria, you should have a range quoted in your contract. Up to but not less than figures. If you are lower than the bottom one you should complain. Loads of people are not getting the minimums quoted but paid for because they never check or don't know how to. Online speed checks are notori...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

That's weird, just returning a Google search, it should offer you a logon screen for your router.

Back to basics, who is your ISP and are you using their dedicated router?

What speed range does your fibre contract guarantee?

Q: Do you have logon details within your welcome pack?

Your download speed looks a bit mean compared to the upload. What does the router say Gloria? That will normally show you exactly the speed you are connected to the exchange with and also the maximum attainable on the line. You should have the router passwords etc. Depending on your ISP have a look ...

Not happening at the moment Stanley.
