    I’ve opened this off topic thread as a temporary home for all discussions that are not Motability related. It will remain at the top of the page as a “super sticky”. Hopefully we can replace it with a dedicated multi thread ‘off topic’ section.

    Keep it decent and respectful and non sexual. Any offensive posts will be removed and posters will be warned as to future posting conduct.

    Enjoy.

    Guys got my computer fixed….ish running on Windows 8 and all is good. I know most of you were against an all-in-one computers but i think they look great and if i hadnt fixed it i was about to buy one. 24 inch screen practically no cables (the wife liked that) looked great, but £800 saved all is good.

    Windows 8!!! Next you will be telling us you need a shilling for the electric meter! With all your posts relating to electric vehicles I was under the impression you were up to date with technology, next you will be telling us the batteries have failed in your sun dial.

    Only kidding! I too am a bit of a luddite with all the IT supposed upgrades that seem to appear on the market every other month. If it does what you want why upgrade to systems that don’t always respond in the same way as the original. Having said that, I am not championing steam driven cars!!

    BigB i had windows 10 on it but computer stopped working, tried everything to get it to work but nothing worked. As a last resort i put in my old windows 8 disk in and hey presto it worked couldnt believe it. Now looking to upgrade to windows 10 free of charge, as windows 8 has removed it, i know they were offering it in the past but not sure if they still do.

    Hi Brydo

    Have you thought of a linux disto works just as well or in some cases better than windows!

    I use my laptop which is writing this with solus linux, a lot of users use Ubuntu distro, look it up online to see what you think, I made the decision to change when Microsoft insisted that everyone on windows 7 would have to upgrade to win 10, I decided that no company was going to force me into something I did not want.

    Here is a link to a very informative linux website https://distrowatch.com/  hope this helps you to make a decision on changing your os.

    Hi Trev

    I notice your idea of driving songs has been removed so are we going to start it here?

    If so I will start with Status Quo Down Down, followed by Caroline both live from the last of the electrics show December 2016.

    Been to see them at the Hydro in Glasgow Every year, since 2012.

    I know originally you said only one song, but I thought why not two songs!

    Hi lightbodyae55,

    Yeah shot down in my prime lol

    Shortly there is going to be a dedicated section for off topic discussions, so instead of cramming all off topic discussions in one thread, we can have individual threads for each topic, thus was thinking waiting till that appears before starting it up again. Otherwise it’ll get fragmented and not very user friendly.

    Yes Mike, he has so many fantastic songs…. Andrew Lloyd Webber would do so well in making Manilow the Musical.

    Not a fan of Abba, but OMD i used to listen on my walkman when commuting to college on the train, fantastic pioneers of electro.
