    HEADS UP!!

    ...or not Does Amazon Spray Boxes With Chemicals Dangerous to Pets? (snopes.com)
  2. One of the farmers with fields next to me is very conservation-minded, with some lovely hedgerows and various sizes of set aside areas and wild dens. I see greys every year, and last year they chose to nest next to my fence between the grass and the (never-used) drive. So we had regular visitors last year. Photo taken looking through the patio door.
  3. Buggeration! I hadn't picked up on that Dave. Similar words on the BASC website in the Scotland Coronavirus section. "Shooting is no longer exempt from socialising restrictions in Tier 4 areas. This means that shooting activities may only take place with up to a maximum of 6 people from no more than 2 households."
  4. If you are not too precious about going second hand, or maybe the odd scuff, then take a look at the offerings here Refurbished Desktop PCs and Laptops from Stone Refurb
  5. No worries AVB. I was at a shoot at the weekend in my council area (so allowed travel) but there were a couple of beaters there (paid work = allowed travel) from another council area who ended up shooting, which wouldn't be allowed travel. Fortunately, they brought their guns with them.

    If you're not too precious about getting new, then consider a refurb unit.

Try to make sure you get an SSD (Solid State Drive).
  8. Stitching on main zip burst / undone. This post has reminded me that I need to get it fixed.
  9. If something is free, then YOU (well, data about you) are the product.
  10. I guess if wildfowlers don't shoot enough of them in the season then the numbers will remain high and they are regarded as a pest in the same way as pigeons, damaging livelihoods. Becomes a pest management task.

    You're pretty stuffed I think, sorry to say I came across the same issue recently for some elements of games my kids want to play on Nintendo switch. I think the game tries to make a kind of peer-to-peer connection. I also found that video & screen sharing didn't work properly in Skype for Business Meetings (but audio was fine) when I was working from home. Vodafone won't give you a fixed public IP address, and they use CGNAT / large-scale NAT on their mobile network. I investigated so far but in the end found another option. I was going to buy a second router and install DD-WRT. The

    Hmm. I don't, but I feel your pain having moved to 4G LTE mobile broadband at the turn of the year. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, you might need to install an "inside" router to create a tunnel out through your mobile router. Google DD-WRT.
