Re: No-Go Areas in Glasgow. Serious ones.

Hey, Lippy, good to see you posting again. Cheers. :) I'm trying to get back into photography, so I bought myself a new camera and thought I'd pop my head back in here. I still hold the view that otherwise good people end up in the worst possible accomodation they're prepared to tolerate. Some move...

Re: Computer Problems.

I thought that too but one of my more powerful laptops actually has a battery life longer than some of my less pwerful ones. Newer chips are more power efficient as well, and tend to throttle themselves back to use less power when they're not in use, whereas older chips couldn't step down so would ...

Re: No-Go Areas in Glasgow. Serious ones.

I hear you, War Baby. It's that there's always a possibility of violence. That's what grinds you down. Usually not any actual instances of it. You want to just get on with your own life, but there are individuals - or families - around that seem to enjoy making other people miserable. What the fuck ...

Re: Computer Security

I really wouldn't pay for antivirus etc.

Avira for antivirus.
Comodo if you must have a firewall. Most of us are behind routers which will protect you from incoming attacks anyway.

Occasional scans with spybot etc, and you'll be fine.

Re: Computer Problems.

I've got two lappies here with win7 on them. The OS is solid. The Dell hardware... Less so. Bloody awful cooling on these things. My HP never overheated like this. Now I'm using it on a laptop cooler and it doesn't crash at all. If it's unstable and you've hardly installed anything on it, it'll most...

Re: Computer Problems.

I wouldn't compress it to save space. It won't save much space tbh, and it'll slow things down a bit. Best bet is to give it a good cleaning out.

Re: Links to funny, cool or interesting stuff

You don't get it. Bands which don't bring people through the door shouldn't be employed. How are you to know whether they will before you employ them? What you are touting is basically a throwing mud at the wall system of getting entertainment into a venue - some will bring people and it's self fin...

Re: Links to funny, cool or interesting stuff

Why should a band get paid when they've brought nobody to the gig? If you can't convince your mates to come to see your band, you're not much cop. Three bands play, they bring ten people between them, bringing in, say, 50 quid at the door. They should get 50 quid each? The way this guy does it, you ...

Re: Links to funny, cool or interesting stuff

It's a club night. The venue doesn't organise it, the guys in charge of the club night do the organising, getting bands, djs, promotion etc. They hire the venue. Whether they get a cut of bar takings or not I'm not sure, but they get a cut of ticket revenue. Bands early on in the night, DJs later on...

Re: Computer Problems.

When you say new stuff put onto her laptop, are you talking about installing programs or photos and other data like that? Either way, you can put most things wherever you like. When you're installing a program you can usually specify where to. If you make a Program Files folder on D: you can install...
