I fear I am losing the plot.

Josh sold his laptop to fund his new business - it had been a birthday
present and he did not think to tell his parents.

Now he is apparently running accounting software on thin air and
managing his website from all sorts of strange locations as he hot desks
around the village.

Who is vetting these stories?

Nope didn't see a thing. I merely pinned me ears back and listened
carefully.

I keep thinking I might buy a laptop and then realise that I have no
idea what I would do with it. Am wondering if the desktop should be
replaced because I cannot get it to stream properly and assume that
there is something in the settings I will never track down.

And I can find no solutions online - you used to be able to google and
someone who had the problem would have an answer, but these days the
answers don't solve the problem.

Buy a lapbottom. Attach them to one another. You will then have a lap.

I was once petting a pussy cat that was sitting on a wall that was about
shoulder high (my shoulder, not the pussy cat's). It stepped on to my
shoulder and as I was trying to return it to the wall it walked round
the back of my neck (I don't know how that is possible - I'm not a
hunchback) onto my other shoulder. But at least it was friendly; what
worries me are those cats one meets in the street that run away,
sometimes across the road. If such a fleeing cat got run over I would
feel responsible.

Very possible Peter. Our first cats did it to Mike all the time. He even
used to do recording work (talking newspaper in our house) with a cat
wrapped round his neck. Sadly many years before digital cameras, I've
never tangled with anything moving pictures

You'd do with it whatever you do with your desktop - with the added
advantage that you could do it in more places. Unless you're a frequent
replacer, any laptop of today (even second-hand - read on) will be more
powerful than your desktop, anyway. (Not that you need any more power,
it just would.) I can't remember why I bought my first laptop (it was in
the Windows 98 era); I think I was thinking I'd just use it when I
wanted to compute somewhere other than home. But it rapidly became my
main computer, with the desktop relegated to occasional use. (Actually,
when I say "my first laptop", this machine I'm using now is only my
second, and I mainly only bought that to have something specific to show
for my 25 years' service reward, and that because it [prepaid card] was
about to run out.)

I used to recommend people bought desktops, but I wouldn't now. Though
at present I'd buy a second-hand Windows 7 one, because I don't like
what I've seen of Windows 10, but that's just me.

And I can find no solutions online - you used to be able to google and

But you are using a newsgroup! I find the folks in the following
newsgroups help each other with any problem anyone asks about:
alt.windows7.general; microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (despite the
name, nothing to do with Microsoft, and hasn't been for many years); and
even microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion (ditto).

(At a guess, the streaming problem is probably a matter of your browser,
assuming you stream via that - if not, I can't help. We do miss
Sebastian - though there are others here who probably _can_ help with
that problem, at least more than I can.)

Good point. (Though is 3 years worth the hassle?) I just didn't like its
default interface - tiles are OK (just about) on a moan, but not on a PC
(especially if you don't have a touch screen). [And yes, I know about
classic shell etcetera.] The s/h market seems to have more 7 than 8.

It certainly was one of the least popular Windowses (?). I understand
that Vista SP2 isn't bad, but the initial version was pretty bad, and
enough to put lots of people off (including me).

Yes, I have to say that I was livid about being ambushed into
"upgrading" to Win10, but after a few initial things which are now
sorted out, I've been very happy with it. It seems much more stable
than the Win7 I was running before, and I find it easy to use and
largely trouble-free. The only thing that's not sorted is the little
clock on the task bar, which isn't showing. Oh, and Microsoft Edge
seems to have vanished from my apps, but as I never use it on this
machine I don't really care, and I can get it running if I really need it.

Admittedly, I'm just an ordinary user with little depth of knowledge,
but for my purposes, Win10 has been far better than I thought it would be.

No need to tell Microsoft how happy you are: Redmond already knows

Executive summary: Now Microsoft gives you the choice of whether Win
10 sends them huge amounts of information from your computer or merely
just a lot of it.

Yes - I got a message today that some monster "upgrade" is in the
offing. <shudder> I've set all my privacy settings to "No," which
presumably means that they're just taking more data than I'd want,
rather than finding out everything about my entire life.

I will be, perforce [1], purchasing a new laptop over the weekend [2]
and so will have to go W10. I'm easing myself into it by using the
W10 tablet I bought a while back for Pa, but was never used. At least
it has a (small for my fingers) keyboard, so no need to be prodding
away at the screen all the time while I'm typing.

[1] The power socket finally seems to have given up and is no longer
charging.

various gift cards I have stashed away in a safe place. The minute I
got home, they all appeared again!

Power socket problems are quite common with laptops, and are fixable -
the actual socket ought to cost a few tens of pence, though in practice
might be 2 to 8 pounds or so. The main difficulty (I wouldn't do it
yourself unless you like doing such things) is the dismantling to get at
it. (I'd offer to have a go, but postage both ways would add
considerably to the cost - do you not have a local tame guru? If really
not, a local laptop repair shop should do it, but will have to charge a
lot - they have to cover their costs and it _is_ time-consuming.)

Assuming it's not the power supply ("charger" as lots of people call
it). They do die, suddenly. Worth a check: replacements are cheap and
trivial. (If you've been having problems with the socket for some time,
though, it probably _is_ that - or, if you're lucky, the connector on
the end of the lead.)

I know a local company where 2 of my former apprentices work. I need
to pop in one lunchtime and see if they can sort it for me. But I
expect to cost in the region of £75 or so, even at mate's rates. I
can't afford to be without a decent machine, so even if it is fixable,
I really need to downgrade it to a backup for doing stuff like playing
music and streaming videos.

I watched the youtube vids of how to do the repair and it basically
entails taking the entire machine apart to remove and refit one small
part. I could do it, but I'd rather spend my time improving my
fitness for my grading in 6 weeks. It's coming up faster than I'd
like and I'm getting slightly more worried about it than I'd like!

I had a Dell laptop which had a power socket problem so went and found
the videos like that. I watched and realised that it was all perfectly
feasible but essentially the entire machine would need dismantling - and
the risks of things not going back "just" right" were great enough for
me to decide that I was not going to repair it and it went to the dump
on the next visit.

me to decide that I was not going to repair it and it went to the dump
on the next visit.
As part of the apprenticeship is to be able to take apart and rebuild
various machines, I know they can do it.
I am sure they can. I was talking about my ability to do it without
damaging anything!

I used to recommend people bought desktops, but I wouldn't now. Though
at present I'd buy a second-hand Windows 7 one, because I don't like
what I've seen of Windows 10, but that's just me.
Been running Win 10 here for ages. No real problems. Even with auto
updates. Apart from this stupid streaming nonsense. But I think I have
the answer - foobar2000 seems to work. Initial trial did not but
another go yesterday has been smoother.
Hmmm. Well it works. But I paused the playback before lunch and the
f***ing stupid software has forgotten that I am about 80 minutes into a
two hour recording and has reverted to the start and will not let me
pick up at the point I had reached. Who does not test software and
makes sure it works? Why provide a slider to reach the desired point
which clearly does not work?

So back to where I was before as foobar2000 clearly sought to fool me.

I fear I am losing the plot.
Josh sold his laptop to fund his new business - it had been a birthday
present and he did not think to tell his parents.
Now he is apparently running accounting software on thin air and
managing his website from all sorts of strange locations as he hot desks
around the village.
Who is vetting these stories?
Well observed.
Nope didn't see a thing. I merely pinned me ears back and listened
carefully.

Gosh, you mean you don't see Ambridge? What a shame; the pictures are so
much better on the radio.
