Re: Transport

Many thanks, Lurcher. Have heard the name, but good to hear positive things about them if I ever need them.

Re: Watching TV.

'ere, Mr P.......have you clocked the new addition: 'The Smithsonian Channel'?

I can't watch that in my clapped-out jogging bottoms....I'll have to put a black tie on :lol:

Re: Windows 7 advice

I just kicked the can down the road by buying a pre-loved Sony Vaio (with a fresh Windows 10 installation) off fleabay.

Will still need to sort the other one out, but no rush now. :D

Re: After all these years.....

Really nice read, Steve. As I hope I never tire of saying: thank you again to yourself, Mark, Prospero-Peter, Dermot, and all the other masters of this craft who pass on your hard-won knowledge and insights. Without all the support you guys give (for free), people like me would find it a whole lot h...

Framing espionage, you say, Steve?......I can feel a best-seller coming on (printed on PH neutral paper, of course) :lol:

Re: Windows 7 advice

Thanks guys. What concerns me is online security. Saying that, I suppose I could keep it offline and just us it for itunes...but that has to update etc. I'm like you, Peter; I never bothered updating Windows 7. But it is a worry that Microsoft will cease trying to keep ahead of the hackers/malware a...

Re: Delete Cookies Button - Bottom right of the screen.

Slightly off topic, but I found ticking the 'keep me signed in' box at log in has solved all the issues I've had (getting signed out even when on the forum, my replies getting wiped when I go to post them, etc.). Strongly recommend it to anyone who hasn't do it. (In best Hannibal Lecter voice) lovin...

Windows 7 advice

Hi all, I just found out that Microsoft are stopping support for Windows 7 from tomorrow. :xcomputer: I've only got it on an old laptop, but that has my itunes on, plus I'd like to keep it 'alive' as a back-up. So (if anyone still has any Windows 7 devices!), has anyone found any cheapo fixes, or wi...

Re: Do you tape up your package?

Thanks Graham (and everyone else).

I like Tessa tape. Been using Seksui for frame backs, but find it a bit stiff and unyielding compared to Tessa tape.

Re: Ribbed frame

Prospero, would your sloppy Polyfilla mixture be relevant here - or that ripple paint you use? Then comb in the effect with a comb thinggy when it's almost gone off?

Re: Anyone still use one of these ??

Definitely, Mark. Stick a reserve on of no less than £300! Seriously, if I had lovely old kit like that (and a shop window!) I'd decorate my display with stuff like that dotted around. As well as looking great, it'd remind people they're paying for bespoke work, undertaken by craftsmen/women....not ...

Re: Do you tape up your package?

Very interesting, Peter & Steve. Different approaches, but I totally get your reasoning (both of you). Peter, I guess another plus for using masking tape is it can be peeled off more easily than something like Tessa tape, if needs-be :head: I do like the idea of assembling face-up, for exactly the r...

Do you tape up your package?

Sorry for this perennial old chestnut of a thread (and the Viz-stylee topic title). Just wondering what the current consensus is in taping up glass/mount/artwork/backing board as a package is? Taping the back up helps keep out the pesky flies etc. but can/do they get in from the front if the sandwic...
