  1. Just read up about heart ablation as I did not know what that was. A few hours on the operating table having to lay dead still must have been difficult. I sometimes get heart fluctuations. Rapid beat for a while. Sometimes skipped beats. There was a time my heart would stop for a couple of beast then continue then after a very short time would stop or skip again. The paramedics were called as it was the first time it had happened and was going on for about an hour. Taken to hospital and put into observation for a day. Didn't happen again so released. My doctor at the time said that
  2. Hi Mick just to say that I have had no problems running the latest software on my late 2013 27" iMac. All I did a little while ago was add some memory up to 32GB. (maxed out). Everything else is still original. Allan Maybe I have got the wrong end of the stick again.
  3. Hmm! I once had a lot of trouble with an HP printer and despite it going back to the manufacturer for repair under guarantee it still did not work when I got it back so returned it for a refund and bought a different one. My little Epson XP-335 hardly gets any use and sits idle for weeks, even months sometimes, but always fires up and prints fine when asked. Allan
  4. Hello Sally, I was OK with spirits up till about late 40's when someone gave me a glass of red wine and 15 minutes later flashing lights were everywhere. I did continue with the spirits but they gradually started to have the same effect so stopped them too. My very first migraine was when I was about 17. It started at work with my eyesight disappearing down half of one side but could still see the other half. Went to the first aid room and the nurse there sent me home to go to bed and rest. That was a journey and a half as I used to cycle to work. Cycling home avoiding the traffic was a bit he
  5. Hi Edo, no I do not believe in eggs and excessive cholesterol myth. In fact I have them on my shopping list for tomorrow. Have them either soft or hard boiled. My regular b/f consists of a mug of orange juice, (the real juice not reconstituted), bowl of cereal, fruit and fibre mostly but interspersed with the occasional other type plus plenty of milk in the bowl. Followed by a fresh orange (have to peel it) and mug of white tea (no milk) that is the name of it. Comes from harvesting just the very new growth at the top of the bush. No added milk or sugar. Hi Sally I get the odd migr
  6. Perhaps the date is set wrong and it was doing an "April fool" on you??🙂 Allan
  7. Morning Edo. Like your breakfast menu. I used to have fried breakfast many years ago but have taken a healthier option since then. My arm is aching and a bit stiff this morning after having the second covid vaccine jab yesterday. The appointment was brought forward by a week and a day by my surgery for which I am grateful. Another seven days and I should be well protected. Not that I am easing off on taking the necessary precautions while I am out and about. Allan
  8. My personal view as to what is killing/has killed the good fees is the digital camera. If we were still only able to shoot on film there would be a lot fewer photographers. JMO. Allan
  9. Thank heavens you only whipped out your camera. Allan
  10. Working on the time scales. $216 x 52 = $11,232 Assuming the same or similar income every week for a year.😉 Allan
  11. Sounds like Alamy put their foot (feet) down after finding out how long ago the images were licensed. Allan
  12. I have a set of images on Alamy of a well documented but little known place/building in Cambridge which when searched for only mine show up. Unfortunately they have never been searched for. I await the day when someone wants to buy the copyright from me. Allan DAMMIT! Just done another search and there are now some more, but not many.😡 ITMA
  13. Don't tell me, don't tell me. I want it to be a surprise. Allan
  14. Ahh! Right! Thank you. Allan Sorry this is the biggest I could find. ITMA
  15. As Mick says. There is a load of information there telling you everything about your mac. Even let's you know what it thinks of you.🤪 (JOKING) Allan

  17. Cancelled my BHZ image as being useless. For me anyway. Allan
  18. Great subject Edo. Will have to do some sorting now. Back later with my poor selection. Allan
  19. I see in another thread that you are off to Apple store soon. Worth having a word with them to see if they can help. You will probably have to book an appointment with the help desk. But if they are not very busy may be able to help still if you turn up unannounced. Allan PS: Why are you using larger print in your posts? ITMA
  20. When I bought my iMac 27' desktop back in 2013 I ordered it with a 500GB flash drive. (as they called it then) SSD today. Just checked and there is still 400GB vacant. Only 100GB taken up with OS and programs. All other files except very few small ones on desktop are on external hard drives. Allan
  21. Bet this will be a good challenge too. Well done Edo. Allan
