Funny how you get to be an expert at that one-handed stuff with a little one!

Re: Back from holiday

I LOVE your holiday pictures! I live vicariously through them to see places I never will in person.

EDIT: Wonderful! And you were within shouting distance of Rosaboobie! She lives on the Isle of Sandy in the Orkneys.

Re: Happy Birthday Draclvr

Thank you, Winfrey! I had forgotten all about it until I went to Facebook today and it reminded me! Started out by making hubby his low carb biscuits and gravy breakfast and not I'm sitting down with a cup of coffee to check out the forums. Busy day of tomatoes ahead again...

Re: Windows 10 and Games

That's correct, Winfrey. Windows 7 will no longer receive security updates.

Re: Windows 10 and Games

Let me know what games you might try. The only issue with Windows 10 is that it blocks certain forms of DRM. But as I mentioned before, one of the Windows 7 updates also made it block those forms of DRM too.

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I fired up Rumu last night. I did a quick play of it when I first got it about 6 months ago, but it's still on my desktop and I'm going to give it another play. Rumu is s little robot vacuum who wakes up in a deserted house with only the AI smart home assistant Sabrina as a companion. There is quite...

Re: Windows 10 and Games

Oh, no! You didn't have the photos backed up somewhere? I think you will be glad you updated - you didn't have that much longer on Windows 7 anyway! It was a good operating system, but it's time to move on! I love Windows 10 and everything about it... When I boot into my Windows 7 drive - I have a d...

Re: Windows 10 and Games

Just make sure this computer has the hardware needed for Windows 10. If it's an older one, there may by a lot of new adventure games that won't play if it has an integrated video card. Lots of people use a virtual setup for older games. It's not that you CAN'T use the old operating systems, it's jus...

Re: Windows 10 and Games

Can't imagine why you'd be busy!! Keep in mind that Windows 7 will only be supported by Microsoft until January, 2020 which is only about 14 months away. Then you will be have to use Windows 10 as Windows 7 will go the way of XP and Vista. I've been using Windows 10 since it was released and I love ...

Re: Tomatoes!

That's pretty impressive for 10 plants, mbday!! I sprayed mine with fungicide twice and I have very little early blight this year. Mine are still going strong and as long as it stays warm at night, there are hundreds out there that will ripen. Got about 19 pints of salsa, 20 pints of pizza sauce, 14...

Then at the other end of the garden I have 32 paste tomatoes - 16 Opalkas and 16 Mama Leone's. I tried a new one they sent me a trial package of called Comstock. So far I'm impressed ...

Re: What adventure game are you playing?

I'm also playing the GOG download of Shivers. What an absolute treat... just the sound effects and the voice in the beginning just make me smile! The dated graphics just feel sort of like "home" in this game. Just loving being able to play it on my Windows 10 computer.
