  1. Me too. I stopped understanding computers when they stopped looking like this. Chrome is very annoying with updates. Over the weekend, it decided an extension that I have used for years and has never been updated, contains malware and is now disabled by Chrome. The extension doesn't contain malware and besides, if I want to infect MY computer, I should be free to do so.
  2. HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security), is a web security policy mechanism that forces web browsers to interact with websites only via secure HTTPS connections (and never HTTP). It can cause problems. This might help in Chrome 1. Type this into the address bar chrome://net-internals/#hsts 2. In the query box type the domain (eg www.example.com or example.com) - don't type the full path. This will tell you if HSTS is active on that site. 3. In the delete box, type the domain and press delete. Your browser will no longer force an HTTPS connection for that site. You can test if its working properly by refreshing or navigating to the page.
  3. Benny Hill and Kay Frazer, doing a bit of ballet and other styles of dance. He even manages a shoulder lift.
  4. A hidden side to one of the UK's favourite artists. (Who would have thunk it?) Ballerinas And Bondage: The Secret Desires Of L.S. Lowry WARNING! Some articles on this site might offend.
  5. I'm glad it is not just me who does this.
  6. A hard disk PVR is ideal for this. With mine, you call up the program guide, goto what you want to record and press OK. That's it! It wakes up and records your program.

  10. I've done syllabus classes in BBO, RAD and Cecchetti and of the three I prefer BBO. I like the longer sequences, which really make you concentrate and I think BBO is much more dancey than the others.

  12. Yikes! It was £25 when it was published and I thought that was a touch pricey when I bought mine. There is a copy in the British Library. I don't know if it available for an inter-library loan (I have no idea how that works), but if you're in London, you could probably have a look at it in the reading room (again I have no idea how that works).
