 What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

Choir: A couple of years ago, we had a small choir running successfully in Torrox Costa. It was called Amicorum. For various reasons – we lost the venue, people moved away, there was no keyboard available, and I moved up to the Viñuela area – we were forced to stop. I have to drive to Torrox and Nerja in future and would like to resurrect this group if anyone is interested.
The choir was different from a couple of other notable ones in that participants needed to be able to read music and ideally have some experience of singing one voice per part. We sang all sorts of music, from 16th century English and Italian madrigals to modern Spanish song, via negro spirituals, Christmas carols, and rounds.
If you are interested in singing, or can provide a venue (we sang in a room in a private house), or a keyboard for rehearsal, please do contact me. Also let me know what voice you sing (SATB). Many thanks, Mike (Viñuela).

Casa Magel: My wife and I have just returned from a two night break at Casa Magel which is regularly advertised on this site. Well there is an old saying “If something sounds too good to be true, then it usually is”. Absolutely not the case here. For just €110 we had 2 nights at a lovely country cottage with a great pool and shady relaxation area with armchairs and settee.T he breakfast was superb and the dinner with a bottle of wine was restaurant standard. Add to this the beautiful countryside and lovely hosts and you just wonder how they do it for the price. We will certainly be returning again soon.

DoctorLaptop’s Tips #74 – Windows 10 Tricks
-Cortana Personal Assistant is a huge energy hog and data collector. You can speed up your computer performance and increase your security by disabling it. Be sure to make a System Restore Point before changing these settings in case you make an error in the process and need to undo it. Info and instructions here:
-Copying web content into Word or Excel. If you are pasting text (not pics or graphics)  from a web page into Word or Excel, and find that it’s incorrectly formatted, try pasting it into Notepad first where the format will be converted to plain text automatically, and then copying it from there and pasting it into Word, Excel or other word processor program. I have to do this with every DigameXtra submission since the default formats in most major email providers do not display correctly in the WordPress Editor tool. That doubles the issue setup time for me, but looks so much better it’s worth the effort.
-Do you miss the old options that appeared when you right-clicked a Taskbar button? You can make them reappear by holding down the Ctrl + Shift keys as you right-click.
-If Windows Search is not accurately finding files or folders that you know are there, then it may be time to rebuild its index. You can do that by clicking Start, typing Index, and then clicking Indexing Options. It will open up the Control Panel entry, where you can go to Advanced > Rebuild and let it re-index, this will take a while, be patient and don’t use the computer while it is re-indexing. Once the index has been recreated, try searching again. https://www.windowschimp.com/windows-10-tricks
