Camping & Technology

Camping & Technology
​ Camping, getting away from it all, roughing it, relaxing by the river.Sounds great, but is that what we do? In the real world, we madly set up camp, then cook tea, then we might sit and have a quiet drink, then bed, which is usually an air bed with a slow leak, so that we wake in the morning, well actually awake most of the night, but we get up i...

I have played around with a few of these, and they can be so much fun, but the differences are so many that most people can't understand why one is $99 at the supermarket and another that looks similar is thousands...

Backup Backup Again
Sorry to harp on about this, but nearly every day we get another computer in with a failed hard drive or someone with the Cryptolock Virus, and when asked if they've backed up, no they haven't. How often should you backup, - as often as you can't afford to lose the data, so if you do a lot of work that you can't lose, copy a lot of photo's, edit an...

Windows 10 Free Upgrade

Windows 10 Free Upgrade
Should I or shouldn't I, that is the question I'm sure Macbeth would have asked if he was alive today. Would he go to 10 for free, and maybe have problems, or stick with what he knows to write his prose? We have 3 days left to decide, so what is the advantages and disadvantages, as I see them.

VR is the New Reality

VR is the New Reality
I have been playing around with my phone and a couple of Virtual Reality headsets, these things are a lot of fun, at the moment all I've played with is the demo's, which are a bit of fun, but don't actually do anything useful, they are designed to have that WOW factor, but really, how many times am I going to ride that same roller coaster, but then...

Scamware/Malware/Ransomware it’s everywhere.
