    Why would my laptop just crash?

    Is the 'on' light visible and the charging light if you have it on charge? Most laptops have a reset switch. It is usually inside but accessible via a pinhole on the back. Using an unfolded paper clip locate the hole and push the pin inside. You will 'feel ' a click and the laptop will either boot up or shut down ready for re-booting. Vic.

    Surprised by Tesco fuel

    At my local Tesco 99 is 5p dearer than 95. Vic.

    Surprised by Tesco fuel

    One question you should ask yourself is if the 5 to 7p/litre extra you will pay for higher octane petrol is going to be recovered in benefits? Higher octane petrol is reputedly good at making your engine run cleaner but how are you going to know? Vic.

    A winter trip to the seaside.

    Scully, never let your dog chase sticks even in the sea. If they pick the stick up by one end and the other end hits the ground/beach the stick goes straight down their throat often with fatal consequences or a very high vet's bill. Vic.

    Engine Sounds

    Try this one, we were at the Goodwood FoS when the Renault team did this and were stood by the side of it. Vic. There is always the V16 BRM from the 50's. Vic.

    Country Gent Embarrasses all Shooters

    The only legal limit on the number of shotgun cartridges you can be in possession of is governed by the explosives regulations. It equates to about 10,000 cartridges. Vic.

    Beretta 391

    The carrier is not involved in the ejection of the spent cartridge only in lifting the new cartridge into position. It sounds as though the problem has been solved by cleaning the gas ports properly. Vic.

    Beretta shock!

    Learnt from where exactly? Red Dot posted while I was writing. I have bought one or two new Beretta's in the past. They were in their new boxes, unopened and when I opened them the guns were not dry. Vic.

    Magical sight and sound.

    The BBMF Merlin engined aircraft are currently grounded because of an engine problem. BBMF have two Griffon engined Spitfires that are filling the gap as best they can. There are quite a lot of Spitfires still flying, whether BBMF's problem will affect them all remains to be to seen. Vic.

    Motorhome hiring

    An excellent choice for a holiday. Check that the insurance covers all eventualities especially as you have a dog. Vic.

    Gas, electric and broadband

    I have been with OVO for some time now and can't fault them. They only operate on line and send reminders for monthly readings. No broadband though, do any of the energy suppliers do broadband? Vic.
