John Illsley of Dire Straits: Wednesday 9th October at Paris 15, Calle la Orotava, Malága. As one of the founding band members, with guitarist brothers Mark and David Knopfler, and drummer Pick Withers, Illsley played a role in the development of Dire Straits’ sound. By the time the group disbanded in 1995 changes in personnel meant that Illsley and lead singer Mark Knopfler were the only two original band members remaining. Illsley was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Dire Straits in 2018.
Illsley has produced two albums of his own, with Mark Knopfler as a guest musician, and has helped with Mark’s personal projects and charities.

DoctorLaptop’s September Special: No one likes slow computers! My famous Clean & TuneUp Special is back, for Windows & Mac. Until Oct. 01, 2019 you can now get 20% off, only €40! If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance, an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you?
I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, update Windows+all drivers+programs, clean out old logs/history/etc., clean & optimize registry, advanced defrag and finally optimize your settings for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
Contact: doctorlaptop @ protonmail.com or call 675 993 069 (no calls b4 11am)
Computer repairs, lessons, websites/blogs/forums/SEO & business computer maintenance service. Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux, Android.
