OneDrive not downloading all your files?

Before we begin, I will say that I love OneDrive.

Towards the end of last year I was getting a little tired of Google Drive (Which is now called something else… Baby, I just dont’t care), so decided to give OneDrive another go. A long time ago OneDrive was pure shite, wouldn’t even trust it with a backup of a single meme – WoW – how wrong was I – I tried it again and it was the unicorn of the file storage solution I’d been looking for.…

How to remove the metadata title from MKV files

mkvYou may have come across the need to remove the metadata, or extended title information from an mkv file downloaded from the internet.

Not all files are equal – in the case of regular files, for example .jpg and .mp4 files, you can simply right click in Windows, select Properties, and happily click away at the Details Tab, then “Remove Properties and Personal Information” – provided you have the right permissions, it’ll all work fine.…

Retro is back! #casio

IMG_4255For around the last 20 years I’ve worn a watch made of stainless steel, usually weighing a metric fuckton, and having features which I’ve probably only used once – they looked awesome and have been fantastic, however the clunkiness and weight have become a bit of a drag. I’ve also been in the habit of taking my watch off every time I sit down, as they’ve been so big, they hindered my typing – and as a geek, that was a bad thing!…

Windows 10 – it’s time, don’t be scared.

Win10When a new version of Windows comes along, I’m always cautious, waiting for a couple of service packs to go by, and the initial load of bugs to be hammered into submission. I think we’ve reached that point!

So, I installed Windows 10 as an upgrade to my existing Win7 Pro install on my laptop, which is Lenovo T420 with 8GB ram, an Intel i5 processor, and a normal HD, plus an add-in drive with the aid of a tray to replace the now next to useless DVD drive; it also has a USB3 card installed.…

TalkTalk: The Fibre Saga

TTFOfferWell… We recently decided to believe the advertising (Silly, I know), and upgrade our TalkTalk Broadband package to include the new ‘Fibre’ package, which claims to be 5x faster than the standard ADSL2 which we had.

Well… Fibre isn’t fibre, in this case it’s VDSL2, and whist there may be a fibre somewhere along the route, probably to a green box at the end of the street, there is no fibre to our house.…

I have my second games console!

IMG_3756At the age of four-oh-something… I now own a second games console!

I’m not counting the Wii. We, that is myself and my wife have a Wii, however I think it’s been used as a cat stopping bung (Stopping the furry little buggers getting into an otherwise open hole in the TV unit) more than as an acutal games console.…
