Android help please!
at 19:54 28 Jun 2020

I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab e tablet for someone last year, they use it just for TV, mainly the BBC iPlayer. Upto now it's worked fine, but it seems that it (the iPlayer app) will no longer work from July as Android v4 is no longer supported.

Has anyone attempted to upgrade to a newer version of the OS on a phone or tablet? I've just watched a youtube video to upgrade the same model to Android 7.1.2, it seems straightforward, but one of those things that if you get something wrong, or miss out a step, you could render the device unusable, is that right?

Any suggestions of what version to upgrade to, websites for video tutorials etc? Or just don't do it, buy a newer tablet instead!!

Any help or guidance appreciated.

Everton, that is. 0-2 probably, 0-6 hopefully.

Who's coming down from the Chamionship then?
at 19:09 20 Jun 2020

Barnsley/Luton probably, but the 3rd bottom place up for grabs, anyone upto Wigan in 17th position.

So we could see any of Stoke, Huddersfield or Boro drop down into L1 next season, but it will probably be Charlton.

It's almost finished now, but worth catching up with on the iPlayer, Simon Reeve travelling through Burma (Myanmar) and speaking to Buddist Monks and Rohingya muslims about the current problems in the country.

Some horrific stories, once again it makes you wonder about humankind sometimes. Part 2 next week.

Bit of excitement this morning
at 10:32 29 Mar 2020

A Police van, 5 Police cars and about a dozen Policemen/women turned up at a neighbouring property this morning, and ended up smashing the backdoor in to gain entry, suspected cannabis factory, apparently.

They've been in there a while, but not come out with anyone or anything yet. Brightened up a dull day, anyway....

Bottom 3 in the Championship are making a good fist of staying up
at 20:54 26 Feb 2020

Luton won yesterday, Wigan and Barnsley winning tonight. I thought teams at the bottom just lost game after game!

I wonder who we'll have joining us in L1 next season: any of the above, plus any of Middlesbrough, Stoke, Huddersfield. Tough season next year.

It must be me....
at 16:03 15 Feb 2020

I said (to myself) before the game, if Burton go a goal up, I'm just gonna go out and not listen to BBC Suffolk.

I've just come back, and it seems we're winning 2-1.....so it must be me.

Mind you, now I'm back and listening to the game again, expect a Burton equaliser/winner....

Sigh.....So was that our good half?
at 20:37 11 Feb 2020

Can we look forward to the Wombles management changing in around in the 2nd half to win the game 1-0?

10 more wins?
at 11:12 9 Feb 2020

Minimum, I would say, and that will probably only be enough for a PO place.

Can we manage that? Oxford, Coventry and Portsmouth are the only 'tough' games remaining, so I'll assume we'll lose all 3, draw one (probably already relegated Bolton at home!) then win the other 10.

Then he's (Lambert) going to have to come up with something different in the PO's, or we know what's going to happen.

Yet another running thread
at 13:40 27 Jan 2020

Yes, sorry, bit of a 'look at me!' post, but I've finally got off the starting blocks, so to speak, and did my first run today, no more excuses or procrastinating!

Considering it was my first proper run in about 25 years, it went OK, just under 2.5k, short rest, then 2.5k back, without stopping at a steady pace.

Any advice from the seasoned runners on here? I'm looking to go 2-3 times a week, keep this distance (approx 5k) for now until I feel more comfortable, then increase I guess.

Any good apps (got an old Android 7 phone) that help keep track of times etc that anyone can recommend?

Teccie (Windows 10) wifi help please
at 19:07 20 Jan 2020

My ageing techie-head is struggling with this one, sorry, bit boring for non-techies:

Windows 10 laptop, had it for a couple of years, no problems uptil now. Using it this morning, suddenly lose the internet connection, no problem I thought just reboot the router, that usually works.

It didn't, so tried restarting router again, still nothing. Checked my phone and a tablet, they're both still connected to internet and working OK.

Plugged an ethernet cable from router to laptop, that's working fine too, so must be something wrong on the laptop.

Checked laptop, it's telling me there are 'no wireless adapters' on this device - strange. Checked Event Log, no errors there. Checked hardware devices, wireless adapter is in the list and showing up as being OK.

Didn't want to waste too much time on it, so popped out to Argos and bought a USB wireless adapter, came back home, plugged it in, and it's working fine - in fact it's faster than the built-in adapter!

Not a big deal, as I'm up and running with the USB device, just a bit weird why the built-in wifi adapter just stopped working, but Windows still thinks it's OK, anyone had this before?

Do managers contracts have cooling off periods in them?
at 17:49 4 Jan 2020

You know, like with timeshares or double-glazing, so when you've signed one but later realise how stupid you've been, or that you've been duped, there's still a chance you can get out of it.

Just asking for a friend, lets call him Marcus.

Can we get promoted by just beating the bottom 10 or 12 teams?
at 22:00 21 Dec 2019

Clearly we have an issue with not being able to beat any of the better teams in this league, but there are 10 or 12 pretty poor teams, most of which we have beaten once already.

As much as I would be happy with a different manager, as Lambert clearly isn't able to get the best out of a decent bunch of players at this level, but I really don't think ME is likely to sack him unless we drop out of the top 6.

Of course we'd need to finish top 2 to avoid the inevitable defeat in the POs, probably need 16 wins to get us over 80 points, so I guess I've answered my own question......no.
