Died with Covid is not died from Covid.
Do we only care about the 100,000 in the UK that died with Covid, not caring at all about the other 400,000 who died without it in the same year?
People die of natural causes, which is what it is.

Re: Attachment only displaying for logged in users

In phpbb3 guests cannot download attachments is normal, I think. Why spend bandwidth on people who can't be bothered to contribute in any way?

Re: Speeding

They'd have a long wait for me, as in 17 years I never got caught speeding. There is a reason for that.
I'm glad you are speeding though, and helping to reduce the debt of the Spanish treasury. :clap:

Re: Google unlimited free storage for photos/drive etc to end

Fair enough. Maybe it is cheaper to pay a few quid or euros to back stuff up to the cloud. Each to their own.

Just buy a 1Terabyte external hard drive and store your stuff on that. Why rely on someone else?

Re: Casting bbc and itv

This is an old topic, but I have a question about casting.
If I cast a YouTube video to my TV both are connected to my wi-fi.
Does the video go to the laptop then to the TV or direct to the TV from the router?
Not that there is a problem, I'm just interested.

Re: First actual problem re:Brexit

Santander (UK) are also swapping out all cards from Visa to Mastercard. Not sure why.
This doesn't really explain it but I expect it's about saving the banks money.

Re: White deposit on pool water

What is the pool pH? Cal would only survive on the surface if the pH is too high.

Is there a reset to factory settings option with the Humax box?
I would try that.

Yes there is page 55 of the manual

Re: Easyjet

Oh dear. EasyJet have now been hacked and all customer details and credit card details are out there in the wild.
They say it was a sophisticated attack, but then they would say that, wouldn't they?
These companies really do need to take Internet security more seriously.

Olive, ^^ It would be the only virus ever to have existed that the human body is not immune, once exposed, infected and recovered, so we should assume that people who have had it are immune.
