About Us

My photo
In 1977 we hired our first narrowboat from Anglo Welsh at Market Harborough.From that moment our destiny was set. In 2006 we finally purchased our own brand new 57' narrowboat which we named 'Free Spirit'. Our aim is to travel the length and breadth of all the navigable rivers and canals of the UK. This will be our story as it unfolds.

One sick PC

Such a nice chap. Guy Buxton of Giggles Computers. He Arrived mid morning and after going through the same procedures as Ian yesterday realised that some serious work was needed to get it right. After pursuing all options Guy came to the conclusion that the problem could lie within the 'Solid State Drive'. So only one thing for it but take it home to his "computer hospital". I did ask if I could go back to Windows 7 again and the good news was yes I could. Guys recommendation was for me to leave 10 well alone for now as there are too many problems still to be addressed. I know that in maybe 2 or 3 years Windows 7 will not be supported by Microsoft but hopefully by then all the bugs will have been removed. Having already installed Windows 10 on my machine, there should be no problem reinstalling it at later date.

Great company Windows.
Can you imagine buy a car, the manufacturer upgrades the software, a month later it wont start so YOU have to PAY another car repair firm to get it going again.
How long would that car manufacturer be in business?

Hmm, good point, ditchcrawler. If it turns out to be a Windows problem I would agree but as Ian pointed out this is a free upgrade so do we have a leg to stand on? Still blooming annoying though!
