  5. Windows 10 is actually a virus, discuss

    I don't think it will. I've had viruses on a Windows virtual machine running under Linux.
  6. Obscure connections to celebrities

    My sister used to be Bill Nighy's gardener.
  7. Does anyone know this ice breaker location

    I think that I can see a bridge hole through the bush which could be Apple Pie Lane Bridge and a building to the left which could be Hartshill Wharf. The line of trees seems to stop at the bridge which would fit with the present view although the house on the bridge would have to be later than the photo.

  15. First, first unread and last posts

    I haven't set anything up on the new forum. I just log in, click the "Unread Content" at the top, then click the blue dot against a thread I am interested in and I'm taken to the first post that I haven't read. (Actually, I middle click to open it in a new tab then scroll down to the next interesting topic and repeat...) Once I have seen all I want to, I click "Mark site read ".
