How about Bangladesh in the World Cup yesterday? 322 in just over 41 overs.

Similar for me. Someone recommended them and then I found Dave Gregory of XTC was the guitarist.

From your image it looks like it is one way, up on the right and down on the left. If it is I didn't realise and I am pretty sure I was climbing up the left which probably made it harder. [emoji3]

I've been there. Climbed part of the way up, chickened out and came down again. Those steps are bigger than they look. [emoji3]

My heart sinks when I see DPD in the dispatch email. They have one saving grace where you can track the driver so if you are quick you can intercept them before they go to the wrong address.
One time I was expecting DPD to collect a damaged subwoofer (damaged by them) and deliver a replacement at the same time. When the driver arrived to collect I could see no sign of the replacement so asked him if he had a delivery for me. The answer was no. Two minutes later I got an email saying my parcel had been delivered. To the house round the corner who just happened to have about 5 other parcels delivered so didn't immediately notice an extra box weighing 20kg.
DPD deliveries are stressful.[emoji3]

Don't get me started on DPD. If they attempt a delivery but nobody is home they take a photo of the house door to prove they have been there. In my experience this is often not my door but one nearby with the same number but different street address. Having the photo evidence allows you to tell them how incompetent their driver is and get it redelivered, often to the same wrong address but after two or three attempts they succeed. The real problem occurs when they actually manage to delver to the wrong address. Then they do not take a photo so you have no idea who has your parcel. Rant over.

Hmm just looked at their website and "good" condition is only two steps above "inoperable". I wouldn't like to see a "fair" condition camera.

I think I will do the same. It's a shame that it doesn't come with a protective box like some others I've seen.

I wonder why Amazon are charging 43.70 when at Bristol Cameras it is 25. That is a massive difference.

This could be the most stupid question ever asked here. I have just bought the Pentax Sensor Cleaning Kit and I am not completely sure which piece of the cleaning sheets I use to clean the cleaning tool. There is a transparent plastic sheet attached to a paper backing. Do I use the plastic or the paper?

Is it a collaboration with Gary Numan? I can't find any confirmation. Another track on the same album was co-written with Numan and a cover of a Numan song also appears on the album but Johnny and Mary seems to be written solely by Robert Palmer.

I've just been thinking about this and found your post. Is it also flipped left to right? So a dust speck at top left in the image is actually bottom right on the sensor.

Finally tried installing Windows 10 on my Toshiba Satellite Pro and all my fears seem to have been unjustified. Even the webcam still works. Only annoyance is my Synaptics Touchpad scrolls in the opposite direction. Currently trying to find a way to reverse it. I also installed "Open Shell" to male the Start menu more like Windows 7.

Toshiba themselves decided not to support a Windows 10 update on a large number of laptops including mine so thanks very much Toshiba.

2010. I know what you are thinking. [emoji3]. It still does everything I need though so I would rather not be forced to replace it.

Maybe it works for some, maybe most but from what I've read it is not compatible with my Toshiba laptop even if Microsoft say it is. I have frequently considered trying it but always chickened out as no one seems to have successfully updated a similar machine.

OK thanks. I suppose air conditioning may have caused it. If it does not clear given time I will open it up. It seems to have 4 screws. I have never seen this happen before.

Somehow I have managed to get a misty spot right in the centre of my OME53 eyepiece. I have cleaned both sides but the spot is still there. I am not sure how this is possible. Any thoughts?
