Floor tiling: I am considering re-tiling our floor. When I have been to tile shops they have tried to talk me into porcelain tiles, and tell me they are much more hard wearing. They are also much more expensive, so probably the shops are biased.
But I have been told by people that they are difficult to lay and often crack when being laid, and that we should go for ceramic tiles.
Does anyone have any experience of laying porcelain tiles or have any advice to offer on this subject, as at the moment I don’t know which tiles to look at.

Diego the chimney sweep again! A very nice genuine man who I contacted by phone on 952515065 for advice on my very old wood burner. (The e-mail given on previous recommendations could not be delivered by postmaster? ) The elderly woman who answered took my phone number to which Diego promptly replied. Though he could not clean the chimney he gave me various options in detail, very positive comments which I agreed with.

Announcements

Sorry for the delay in getting today’s issue out, my internet went down in the middle of the night, probably due to maintenance on the server.

In order to save on data storage space I will be purging all pics (but not text) from issues before 2017. Keeping a complete archive going back 1 1/2 yrs is sufficient. If you want to save a pic from an older issue do it before 01 Sept.

The DigameXtra website Header Picture will be updated soon. Snow covered mountains just doesn’t seem appropriate in this heat!

DoctorLaptop’s August Special: Did you know that the current version of Windows 10 (1803) reaches it’s end of service in only 15 months? We don’t yet know if another free version update will be offered. We do know that soon you will no longer buy a copy of Windows, you will lease it by subscription. Full article

Learn Linux! If you don’t like Windows 10, can’t afford Macs and don’t want to be trapped into the Windows-as-a-subscription service that Microsoft will be introducing then this is for you. There are several versions of Linux designed to be familiar to Windows users to ease the transition. This is a 1.5 hour class that will get you up and running Manjaro Live Linux on your laptop computer without the need to install it until you are ready to do so. Manjaro Live runs off a flash drive so your current Windows system is left intact. Unplug the flash drive and restart to return to Windows. You will need to bring a 8Gb or larger flash drive to the class. This flash drive will be dedicated to Manjaro use only, no other data can be stored on it. Manjaro looks similar to Windows 7 but with different colors. With Manjaro the system and all programs are free. Malware is so rare most Manjaro users don’t even use a anti-virus program. Class Cost = €40 doctorlaptop@protonmail.com
