Wasn't he the guy who approached the prostitute.. somewhere..?

Yes he offered her the sum of £2,000 in a brown envelope to 'forget' a joint experience. Thereafter 2 grand has become alternatively known as an 'Archer'.

He perjured himself over this matter and was sent to prison in July 2001 sentenced to four years for that crime and also for perverting the course of justice.

Good writer who it seems conflated his fiction into what he saw as reality.

You are entirely welcome to your own opinion and welcome to express it too. If there was 100% agreement on everything all the time it would be a boring place indeed.

Yes,  by setting my 'busy' times to be from 0800 to 0200, so that any update can not begin when my computer is switched on.

Only place I'm moving from is The Mother Ship. It's no longer PF, it's an extension of OFF. I'm no longer comfortable there. 😢

General Discussion / Windows Update problem
Last post by JBR - Yesterday at 08:51:35 PM
I don't know whether there are any Windows experts on here, but I have recently had problems with my computer.  My mistake was to download a Windows Update, which completely cocked up my computer.  I could no longer log into Windows using either my PIN or my password.
Having contacted Microsoft Support, I was led through a number of actions which proved of no use at all.  At the end of the day, the best they could suggest was to remove everything from the computer (luckily I had a backup on an external hard disk) and reinstall Windows afresh.
I have since spent many hours over several days in trying to reinstate everything that was there: software, files, etc.
I finally finished it all, but I'm afraid my new setup is still not quite what I used to have, but I suppose I'll have to live with it now.
I am pretty angry that Microsoft has been able to ruin my computer due to no fault of my own, and if I could I'd be demanding some sort of recompense.
The important lesson I have now learnt is never to allow any more Windows Updates again and do this by setting my 'busy' times to be from 0800 to 0200, so that any update can not begin when my computer is switched on.

Quote from: klondike on Yesterday at 08:33:53 PMWe don't really do sticking to topic here. Most threads wander off after a couple of posts. Bit like chatting to friends in fact...
