As I've got time on my hands now I'm redundant I'm hoping to help out by volunteering at the local library. I thought I better come down and have a look at the computers to find out what I was looking into helping with and realised that the computer I am using is Chrome OS. Onedrive opens really quickly and I can edit book chapters better than I could at work. The only problem is I can't change the colour of the screen to help the dyslexia as I can't install extensions. I think that should be standard on all browsers and will say so when I talk to the person who is mentoring me. I'll have to remember to bring a coloured plastic sheet down with me; I found one this morning when I was tidying out the pile of books by my bed.

We seem to have worked out where where they came from - a neighbour moved something from outside their flat and I think they have taken refuge around my outside light.I have given up and swept all around my windows and doors an sprayed fly spray over everthing. Hopefully that is now it.

I only chatted with the person for a few minutes as I refused to access my windows computer and they seemed completely thick about the fact that Linux doesn't really have virus problems. No rudeness this time, the woman just put the phone down. They were also thick enough not to block the phone number they were ringing from which was 0016508695923. Here's what a quick google found about them and I reported them to Talk Talk and will be ready for them should they ring again. I am presuming they have my number because of the TalkTalk hack a while back.I really seem to be a sitting duck today. Not only (as I reported on Facebook) have I had TWO
