at 14:40 20 Jun 2020
Yesterday landline down *again* - 3rd time in 2 weeks (dug through their own cables twice last week) and now saying they're not sending engineer till Tues ... No mobile signal here, which I told them.
Emailed them, they've just messaged back saying "please give us a phone no. so that the engineer can ring you!!
Couldn't make it up etc etc - worst company in Europe by a country mile etc etc
|Top 10 political leaders of all time?|
at 11:01 14 Jun 2020
Prompted by a question from VT on Shawsey's NZ thread, who would yours be? Leaders of country, party or movement. Mine -
1. Nelson Mandela
2. Mahatma Gandhi
3. Martin Luther King
4. Winston Churchill
5. Franklin D. Roosevelt
6. Keir Hardie
7. Harold Wilson
8. Mikhall Gorbachev
9. Jacinda Ardern
10. Open for choice of wildcards - Greta Thunberg (OK, not politician, but trying to influence all current & future politicians on biggest threat to humankind); Salvador Allende (heroic failure?); Benazir Bhutto (flawed, but then aren't most?); John Smith, the late Labour Party leader.
Although I said "of all time", my own historical knowedge isn't really up to doing that, so I've stuck to 20th & 21st centuries. If Guthers or anyone else wants to bump mine down the list with Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great or whoever, feel free!

Anyone seen them lately?
No9, I know you're no longer a spring chicken, so call me worryguts but please come in if you're about!
BTR I'd assumed busy on farm at most intense time of year, but ..?

I look forward to seeing everyone's selfies :)
Personally, I don't know how to post photos on here - my one previous attempt was an epic fail of a blank screen ;/p

Currently use free Malwarebytes for my Mac lappie. Is it worth upgrading to the pay-for (about £18 annually) Premium version? which has a preventative function (the free version only removes malware if it does invade).
Or - I see the Total AV anti-virus pro, which is free, has been given the #1 spot in a top ten antivirus for macs review poll (but am not sure not if that itself is trustworthy?).
Any assistance from techie experts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
