Re: Backups to the cloud

Progress is slow on this but I'm coming to the conclusion that for me it's better to parcel up groups of files into large zips (or files like zips) and manually upload those to the cloud. Synching with the number of small files I have takes forever and hogs the machine. I will also maintain a bootab...

Re: Roadside Art

Dear Esther Live

Whether or not you consider "Dear Esther" a game I was just struck by there being such a show at all - https://www.cambridgelivetrust.co.uk/cornex/events/dear-esther-live.

Re: Game Puzzles I Could Do Without

I hate (because I'm useless at them) puzzles where you have to follow dance moves or the like, or beat out the same rhythm.

Stopping and starting games

When you play games do you start playing and only stop when you've finished? Or do you sometimes start playing, then stop for a while and pick up the game again later?

Re: Defrag?

Have you ever used the Task Manager in Windows mbday630? That can help you see where the memory on your computer is being used. Do you have access to someone technical who can look at your system?

Re: Off on another cruise
