  1. Thank you Chesters. As you probably realize, this is all in anticipation of getting Vagabond down to the water......
  2. The new on-line .gov.uk web site is a big improvement on the Post Office system Just bought licences for three of the family including myself. Much more straightforward to use. Had prompt acknowledgements by email and text with licence numbers which as has been said here "Is all you need". No mention at all that plastic licences will arrive ......... Has anyone received their plastic licence yet?
  3. Sorry can't upload even a small photo. Just get an error message. You will have to imagine, a bearded gentleman, quietly fishing from a narrow boat in a Thames Lock on a warm sunny evening. No other people, no fish. All's peace and tranquillity..........
  4. This was a splendid exploration of an area new to me. It was a lot less busy on the river than I expected. I think this photo taken at this Thames weir pool sums it up!
  5. Thanks chaps for all your suggestions. In spite of Sony claiming that my particular camcorder is compatible with Windows 10, and me having Sony's latest software, there is no recognition via the USB cable. Number 1 grandson has now visited and agrees my diagnosis, but he did point out a provision under the camcorder to insert a memory card, which I hadn't seen. This facility has resolved the problem. The files have been dubbed onto the card from the cameras hard drive and then the card slotted into my pc for transfer. Seems a very clumsy fix, but it works!!
  6. Thanks Newt, Option 2 is possible as I do have my old pc with Windows XP languishing under the desk. Would just need to connect everything to it again. I do want to edit the video on my new pc, though, as it is much faster and has plenty capacity, so will wait for Option 3 which is a phone call this afternoon from a very technical grandson who assures me he will talk me through the issue.
  7. The Sony site gives a long list of Camcorders that are compatible with Windows 10. All defined by their model code number. The only similar code to mine has an extra E ie DCR-SR58E. Is this telling me that DC-SR58 is not compatible? I am using the latest version of Sony software which just keeps telling me to "connect a camera". I have tried the FAQs on the Sony site which suggests using a different USB port and connecting the camera before and after switching on both the pc and the camera. My pc knows that a camera has been attached because my security software asks if I want to Scan it.
  8. Hi I have been baffled for weeks by the inability of my recently installed Windows 10 to "see" the Sony Camcorder (DCR-SR58) that is connected to my PC. This wasn't a problem with Windows XP. The Camcorder was one of the Devices listed when I wanted to Import files to my PC. My husband, Vagabond, suggested that there would be technical expertise on Anglers net that would tell me what I need to do to put this right. I would be really grateful for some direction! Thanks
  9. Thanks chaps. I know I sit at the feet of the Master
  10. Hi chaps Looking forward to fishing with you on Wednesday. I thought that I had better post so that I make my claim as a contender for the trophy. Dave (Vagabond) is busy with preparing the tackle. My role is just food, transport, campsite, boatman........ We will be travelling up to Rutland on Tuesday so will check Tuesday morning that we are not cancelled at that point. If we can't get out on Wednesday we can always go birding! Norma
  11. Pleased that you liked the barbel, but it was me that risked life and limb descending with the help of a rope down a 12 ft bank to net the barbel and then release it. Vagabond just watched and gave advice - he believes wives should catch and land their own fish.
  12. Ooooo, Having read up on that one, I won't grumble about the cost and inconvenience of using bottled water, ever again.
  13. .....collecting species of tropical parasite........ Well, Dermatobia hominis is a new species for the family list... but its quite a long list already: Leeches from Australia, Malaysia, Madagascar and Assam Ticks from Ireland, Australia and Colorado Sand flies from Australia Chiggers from Venezuela, Belize, Costa Rica Blood sucking mosquitos almost everywhere south of Dover and of course, midges anywhere to the north I often feel that we must be received by the wildlife in foreign parts like an exotic take-away being delivered to your swim at Wingham.
  14. Perhaps he won't, but his gran has....
