 Post subject: ISA slot
PostPosted: Tue Nov 13, 2018 10:30 pm 
Has anyone got an old PC or motherboard that has an ISA slot?

PostPosted: Mon Oct 29, 2018 9:22 am 
Has anyone any suggestions as to how to correct colour problems when printing photos? On my PC I use Photoshop to edit photos and the results that I see on the screen look OK and similar in colour to what I see on my camera. However, when I print the photos using an Epson Photo Stylus printer and the computer running on Windows 7 the colour is nothing like the original. Wondering whether it was ...

Friend of mine from Sth Africa is in Bavaria in the countryside for 3 month stay,using wifi connection for Internet in lounge area of their digs,but it`s inconvenient.They want a connection for their mobile that doesn`t cost a fortune.
I looked up an excellent review but unfortunately it`s from 2014.

 Post subject: Tablet, no wi fi?
PostPosted: Mon Sep 17, 2018 10:10 pm

 Post subject: Ubuntu 18
PostPosted: Sun Aug 26, 2018 12:02 am 
Anyone into Linux flavours and Ubuntu in particular?

Tried upgrading from 16 to 18 the other day only to find it wouldn't allow my laptop to boot properly and, when it eventually did get going, ran like a slug.

They should ban any OS upgrade that results in slower operation - by law! I mean.... what's the frikken point if it slows your machine down?

Grrrr..... spent an hour reloading 16 (no roll-back feature) and ...

I've had a Fujistu... something for going on 5 years and the battery (amongst other things!) is just done. I need some brand new tech :thumbright:

I'm pretty in the dark when it comes to this kind of thing and I was wondering if anybody has any advice, or good reviews, to offer me?
