|Thread: Gary's Brian Taylor P-47 build|
Might be worth having a ride over to see Charlie Cox at Kings Lynn models gary he might be able to help or know someone with a lathe. Personally mate (Sir) I would hang fire and see how the final outcome is with the CoG and if nose weight is req'd get nut made out of appropriate material, some guys on LMA offer these services. ill send you pm tomorrow.
If budget allows Gary a radial all day long, if only for the sound. As for nose weight that may be required there is always that lump of a spinner nicely turned and balanced. I was contemplated a split wing on mine if possible, what are your thoughts about that?

Been up and down ladders like a fiddlers elbow for two weeks now Steve, getting to old for that lark. Rewired the lights last week two hours on my knees in loft, talk about pain, just getting over it. Sorry Gary, I blame Dibley, back on topic now. What are you putting up front? Electric and I will have word with draftie and get you grounded.
Way to go Gary, good to see you have extracted your digit. All the more motivation to think about mine. Decorating the spare bedroom so put my bits in the loft,reason I mention this is I'm a bit perplexed about the "Model World" bottom right, I would swear it isn't on mine,so now I need to go and have a look to put my mind at rest. Build looks grand lad, idle hands and all that

|Thread: Prostate Cancer|
Andy had phone call on Friday to say injection would be going ahead tomorrow morning, 0900, first patient in the surgery so everywhere will be cleaned down and steralised, got to go in side door at appointed time not the waiting room, got my surgical gloves ready and masks which I picked up at shows last year.
Way to go Martian.

Thanks guys, bottle of Pusser's has been opened wings.
Andy my injections are 3 monthly ones next one is due on 23 april so can expect call about what is happening.
Strange thing about all this is my bald plate is covered with hair again and no one knows why. Madam runs her fingers over it with that look in her eye.Gulp,
Should have had appointment with consultant Monday to let me know how the treatment had gone. Had phone call on morning to say it was cancelled due to the virus, she would phone me at the allotted time. Said everything was all good and fine and the psa levels were undetectable, did not want to see me again (I have this effect on people ) and would refer me back to the specialist nurse later in the year to monitor me.
Boy that's a load off. Stay safe guys.

|Thread: Upgrading Windows7 to Win10 for free|
I hope that you computer techies forgive me, what started off as information for helping out a windows 7 problem seems to have ended up as a quantum physic's session to me, and perhaps a couple of others. I am now at a loss what to do, my W7 is performing as before, does what I ask, lets me fiddle about with my Phoenix, and do my emails. My concern was about the security after windows said it will not be supported so I wonder if my option was to upgrade this to 10, Jon kindly pointed out it is a bit dated and would recommend a linked new laptop which was the option I was going for, then Linux reared up, I fear far too technical for me, then Kaspersky came into play, shall I put this on this laptop, decisions, decisions, decisions. I shall probably go for the new one, then possibly try the upgrade on this one. Do I have to copy everything I have on here or will it remain on here during and after the upgrade.
Keep it simple please chaps, I know you are all being helpful but my eyes spin at some of the technical posts, probably born 40 years too early.

|Thread: Prostate Cancer|
Tomorrow will be the 20th day since my last radiotherapy session. Treatment itself was a breeze, couple of hiccups during treatment which dragged the day out, one was dehydrated, tother was full bowel, other than that it was a walk in the park. It took a lot for me to drink 2litres of water a day and resulting toiletries which I have never had to do so often before, but small price to pay for hopefully good outcome.After effects of treatment has not been evident, took a few days for bowels to settle but feel absolutely great and positive. My personel downside is I suffer (Riddled) with rheumatoid arthritis which has been well under control with methatextrate, unfortunately this is a cancer drug they found beneficial to RA sufferers, but you have to stop it while you have RT treatment and as the radiation is still in your body after you finish I have had to wait This has caused my RA to flare up again and caused me considerable pain and I have now resumed my drug taking. I have been told my appointment to see oncologist is March and to have psa test a week before that, waiting for app.Apart from RA I feel grand, staff at Royal Wolv were brilliant, next three month hormone injection is Feb and tomorrow is another day, Kidderminster hospital for injection into my eyeball Ain't getting old wonderful.
Keep positive guys, enjoy life.

|Thread: Upgrading Windows7 to Win10 for free|
Righto guys all getting bit too technical for me now, sorry. Decided I will go and have a look at Curry's weekend and after five minutes they will realise I'm a pc duffer. If you could give me some idea what would be best for me long term, don't intend buying another one after this, ie, what size RAM, GB space, drives, ssd? memory etc. Willing to go to 3/400 squids.
Thanks again for your help, this doesn't mean I'm getting one from Curry's just getting their speil.
Thank you for that Jon, I shall probably get the one you linked.
Ahh, grandkids, we have a 4 year old great granddaughter, and her fingers fly across the keyboard, "Grumpy this is what you have to do" LOL talk about embarrassed.
The reason I joined the thread is, (a) I'm an old git
(b) Puters frighten the **** out of me
(c) I want some security for the minimal purchases I do on line
(d) I do not do any work as such on pc, transfer files etc just want something for browsing, going on different forums, using my flight sim, booking holidays so really do not need an all singing / dancing laptop. if Jon says that one will be ok seems good enough for me. You can guarantee when my son visits wekend it will be " Why don't you get a decent refurbished win 10 one for your needs dad!" Decisions, decisions, decisions.
Now whats these Apple Mac's
Thanks John, seems pretty reasonable price also.
