    Go North for the Winter

    Barry and Carol,th Please pass our good wishes on to Carol and we hope that her injuries settle down rapidly. However as you say these can take time and that can be difficult to live with. I am sure that having a Barry looking after her will help. Keep it up! Anthony and Alex

    David, Smashing footage. So many of my local club members know this area for good reason. I have never been but I feel I must make the effort having seen the landscape now. Thank you I enjoyed it very much. Did I catch sight of you at one stage? Anthony

    John Steadman

    Good morning John, I am very sorry to read your post on this scam . I consider myself lucky ( touching my wooden desk as I write) so far as I haven't fallen foul to these B........ds. Excuse the language. You may recall my post on this forum back in November 2017. You kindly had an input on the subject of my dying Epson 1290S printer. That might be worth a look as you will be going onto Windows 10. Have no worries on the learning curve. It is pretty straight forward and I would probably struggle to go back to 7 now. All the best Anthony

    Wacom Intuos Photo Tablet problems

    Good morning Barry, or evening! It is a week now since we left sunny Brisbane Airport to fly back to a cold and wet UK. How envious must you be???? Sorry it has taken a few days to get around to responding online. After nearly 6 weeks away it is very easy to forget things on our return. At our age ( you are not quite there Barry) some things take longer to sink in ( some just sink for good I fear!) and the computer is just one of these things. However on seeing your thread on the wacom it all came back to me. For the rest reading this post I have to explain that Barry and Carol kindly took me to their Photo club evening at Noosa Queensland . I thoroughly enjoyed the friendly and informal evening and the easy manner with which Barry held the night on Photoshop skills and tips. It certainly wasn't embarrassing as you thought when the pen didn't work as you wanted. So here's the rub......After a few days before I settled in to look at the computer and some of the many images I have my wacom was all over the place. I had to update Windows 10 as the router had been off and some housekeeping needed to be done. This seemed to throw the pen and tablet somewhat and then reading the ''Ink box'' tip on the forum it got it up and running. I do recall your bringing this up before as you say. Like you I have been using a wacom for years (since 2000 or so) and that lovely Graphire model ran and ran with no issues whatsoever. But with all things these days there has to be so much more technology built in to everything . Loads of stuff we do not need but stuff to confuse and conflict? That's a little rant over. Anyway Barry .........great to see you and Carol and a lovely meal you put on for all of us. Alex is now down in Leigh visiting her mum for a few days and will be off to Germany next week and I will be on the bike ride I mentioned the week after if my knees hold up. Flipping plane journey nearly crippled me. Take care Anthony .

    New Mavic Air Drone

    Hi Barry, I hope you are all having a jolly good time down south in the Sydney area. When are you expecting to return up to the Sunshine coast? Just watched this clip on the new smaller drone. Are you gradually getting into the 'drone mode' I wonder? We went up to Scotland 2 wks ago to stay with some friends and whilst ploughing through thick snow came across a couple of chaps playing with a drone. My pal John has now decided that he must have one. Not sure that I have any use for one but I can see the attraction. Enjoy the rest of your break. Anthony PS Little Joe is now a 'school boy'!

    Our House from a Drone

    Very nice clip Barry especially as it shows from the air where we walk with Carolyn and Dave and the little ones. It really is a nice walk particularly on a Sunday morning where Mums and Dads bring their children and dogs.. We expect to be there again in March and April. See you there? Anthony

    Don't know about swimming pools Barry but it is snowing very hard in Solihull!

    Our House from a Drone

    It is a nice picture Barry. I assume it is your family there with you. One popular use recently is by cycletourers. I have seen many youtube clips of cyclists with great aerial shots of them over the hills and far away! So whilst out in your boat Barry you could video your seamanship? Anthony

    I'd be careful Barry. Carol with a swinging saucepan sounds a little menacing.

    It’s happening again.

    I have only just picked this rant up. It is your forum Barry and you can rant and rave as much as you please. But surely a little light relief from the continual doom , gloom and sadness that we have on our media every day is nice. Isis, Brexit, the budget and Trump the idiot etc. Not to mention the Ashes so we won't. If it was Tracy and Wayne from Clacton not many people in the UK would have much interest as they haven't the audience that young royals have. But this sells newspapers and admittedly you see the same clips and hear the same stories on all the channels for a couple of days but there is an 'off' switch. People generally love young love and that is what it is. I for one thinks it makes a splendid change and I am all for it. It wasn't quite the same when I proposed to Alex though. That was in a graveyard in Hampstead 46years ago! Very quiet and no one around ( alive that is) .Also her sister had a corgi who was a right little bugger and hated everyone. So come on Barry and you others it is good to have and share a little joy for a while. Anthony I await for the onslaught!

    A dying printer

    Guess what? Long live the Epson 1290S printer and it does! It isn't ' .......ed' as a few have suggested. After much perseverance and the recovery disk with W10 I have managed to revert the printer back to normal before all those nasty updates in November played havoc. Windows and Epson are working hard to solve the issues with many printers across the globe and we hope they do. Mine now works perfectly. However it must end at some stage due to it's age ( that goes for me too) but for the moment I am a very happy man. So an end to this somewhat boring post from me. My thanks to all who had an input. Anthony
