  2. 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.

  6. 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

    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.
  10. 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
