On a recent visit, a BT engineer reckoned it should be in a museum !

It has now ceased working & will shortly be replaced by an LG Oled 55-incher.

Oh well, all good things must come to an end...

And about time. I've got a Samsung 55 incher. I didn't realise how big it was when I bought it in the shop, it looked quite small in there.

Remember all the publicity & fanfare that accompanied the release of 'Windows 10' ?

It would be the last number in the series because, in future, Windows 10 would simply be upgraded with any changes that Microsoft implemented.

So, what have they announced now ?

Why 'Windows 11' !

Daft I call it...

Got this e-mail:

Horoscope Offer.JPG


Had to look up 'egregious' & it means 'outstandingly bad; shocking'.

This is scare tactics that could unnerve vulnerable recipients !

What's the betting the 'free' offer will end up costing a lot !

I won't be responding to it, of course...
