    I've just wondered how reliable they are as even before increased prices I'm pretty sure ours jumped as our meter was installed

    Win 10 updates - fail.

    One suggestion might be to go into Add Remove programs and switch to features, then try removing an unwanted feature and see if that errors out, then try the updates again They are gigs in size, so can need device left connected to reliable Internet for many hours

    Windoes 11....

    If it ain't broke don't fix it. ;-) I recall moving to Win10 6 months after release, and had awful trouble at first, wishing I'd stayed on Win7 at time. Now Win10 is OK, so I'll stick for now, but consider later :)

    The Halifax Hum, from BBC News

    I find it incredible , and no doubt seriously frustrating for the residents, that there is no clear source for the humming noise in Holmfield, Yorkshire which is disturbing people's lives. Is anyone expert with audio able to help them? I...
