  3. I bought SSL security for my websites and the forums a while back and set everthing up for the https protocols. The download links to the Tomb Raider games stopped working recently. This was because the links were set to the old http protocols and google now refuses to recognise them despite the site being set up to automatically change all http protocols to https. I've manually updated all the links and they now work again. Apologies if this has caused any inconvenience. Thanks to McRaider for tipping me off about the problem.

    It's a wee Scorpion fish, Johnny Bigheads we call them around here.

    Washed up on Brora beach. It was only about 3 inches long and I'm guessing a young monk fish. Don't think it's a lumpsucker, and can't think of anything else.

  8. As of this month, there have been 1.34 million deaths attributed worldwide to the coronavirus. Okay, let's put this into some kind of perspective. There are just over 7 billion people on planet earth. Assuming an average lifespan of 70 years (it's actually much lower) then that means over the next 70 years at least 7 billion people are going to die. That's not counting all those who will be born between now and then and who will also die during that time. 7 000 000 000 people dying in 70 years = 100 000 000 people dying around the world every year. 100 000 000 people dying every

    Bit of a stormy rainy cold horrid night out there, think I'll whack the electric blanket on and stay cosy.

    Movies

    I have seen all 3, but 2 & 3 blur together. At the moment I'm having difficulty separating plot points between them. 1 was definitely my favourite too.

    Movies

    Has anyone seen the John Wick movies? 2 and 3 are okay, and there is a 4 in the works, and I've heard there will be a 5. The original is astonishingly good, with an excellent story and some of the best acting I've seen in years. 2 and 3 get 8/10 from me because the story isn't as strong, but the original gets 12/10, it's brilliant.

    The waxwings are definitely around. This wee fella was outside my house this evening and posed for me in some gorgeous evening light.
  13. Seems Apples don't 'just work' any longer and Mac users are getting a bit pissed off. Glad I stuck with computers. Here's how Fuji Addict put at his website. "It appears Apple broke Thunderbolt again under Big Sur for Drobo users, which took months to sort out when Catalina was released and had a similar issue. The story is the same as last time when thunderbolt and Drobo devices worked fine together up until the final release. So if you value accessing your Drobo devices via Thunderbolt then you should wait at least 3 months before upgrading. In the meantime, if you didn’t read this warn

    Out on my morning walk I spotted a pheasant on a roof and it was looking very alarmed. I've never seen a pheasant on a roof before. Something must have chased it up there and I suspected a cat. Wandered over to get a photo and look who I spotted in the back garden keeping an eye on the pheasant! I think it's a sparrowhawk.

    Brora Skoom '20

    Put apples out but never saw the redwings again. They were only here for an hour or two, stuffed their faces wtih berries and moved on. However, these fellas showed up this morning. The light was awful so could only manage a silhouette. It's the waxwings! They're here

    Brora Skoom '20

    Bit of a damp foggy day but that didn't deter Mr Spider from being out webbing for his dinner.
  19. There are people living in the Amazon rain forest. Lots of people. Hundreds of tribes, thousands and thousands and thousands of people. People who do not recognise government, any government. People who do not pay taxes. People who kill any outsiders who come near them. All these people are being killed by the fires. How come not one news agency on planet earth has mentioned this? The burning of the Amazon rain forest is not land reclamation by greedy mining companies and farmers, that's a media lie, it is planned, systematic genocide and news editors are deliberately suppressing the truth.

    Birds

    Another photo of the redwings. Apparently they like apple halves, so I'll get a couple in the coop tomorrow if they're still about.

    Birds

    There were around a dozen or so redwings hanging around my house today stuffing their faces with red berries. Not managed to get one on camera before! Beautiful birds of the thrush family and I think they're winter migrants just passing through.
