  • ched999uk: Definately follow up. I once didn't get an interview that I had all experience and quali required. So I called them, to be told they filled job internally but they had another coming up next week. Would I like to be considered for that! I said yes and got the job!!! So keep trying mate you will get there.

    May 24, 2018, 13:40:48
  • Wyntrblue: yea i have been. and they say thanks for your call can i call you back... then radio silence... all very annoying, still im applying for around 10 a day at the moment and the as the saying goes. throw enough mud at a wall and some will stick.

  • DarkButterfly: Best to follow them up, you may get an interview that way
    May 24, 2018, 13:06:33
  • mo_miah: with the number of applicants they don't have time to respond to everyone, normally they say they will contact you within x weeks for an interview and if you dont hear back then assume its a no

  • Wyntrblue: why do prospective employers never ever call you back. as of today i have applied for 37 jobs in 3 days (really need a new job)

  • hoverfly: F/wings  made one called the Hornet  it's not listed now so i assume it's discontinued.  I have 3 Ravens  in various set ups , they go very well with multirotor motors . If you laminate them they are almost  indestructible,  the only bit to suffer is the wing tips. Absolute bargains... ~~

  • mo_miah: raven does look good and cheap enough
    May 23, 2018, 16:24:54
  • atomiclama: Isn't the raven small enough?
    May 23, 2018, 15:22:24
  • mo_miah: nothing around the 2ft wing span?

  • mo_miah: Im tempted by an FPV wing, they all seem huge though

Remote Desktop - easy instal for the elderly?
« on: February 12, 2018, 19:04:28 »
OK so this is a long shot and off topic.
My Mum who is 100 miles away is having computer issues!!! She is a bit deaf and very computer illiterate.
I had installed Chrome Remote Desktop to try and access her computer but it seems like what ever she has done is stopping it running.
Her computer (laptop) is running Win10 as she accidentally upgraded!!

So can anyone think of an easy way for me to remotely control her laptop? Needs to be easy for her to install.

Thanks for any help.

You could try TeamViewer but if she can't download it there might be an issue!

It's the easy way to remote desktop in

Remote assistance is built into Windows 10:-

Or use the Windows 10 Quick assist app?

All depends if she can actually get online?

Another vote for teamviewer. Just make sure it’s set to always run on startup

Or just save a bookmark to the teamviewer quick support app. Doesn’t need an install

I failed! Well forces stopped me. More accurately some scam/virus stopped me! Somehow she has installed something that stops chrome apps (remote desktop) and blocks teamviewer!!! When you try and go to teamviewer.com it pops up some bloke saying he is from microsoft and you need to contact their techs and pay via credit card to remove the virus!!!!

So she is stuck just using here Kindle fire till I can get time to go and fix it.

Thanks very much for the suggestions. I will install TeamViewer when I visit so then I have that and Chrome Remote Desktop to try.

Unfortunately the Win10 remote assistant is a no go as I only have win7 here. Oh no I dont I have my 8" win10 tablet, now there is an idea for another day. She is too stressed by the man from 'microsoft' saying she has a virus......

Maybe I will just wipe it and install some sort of Linux, she only browses or uses email (well webmail). That should stop it getting viruses! I guess she gets suckered by the clickbait ads or my Sisters kids install all sorts of rubbish containing viruses.

Be careful fixing mate, you don’t want to look at your mums browser history based on that! :)
(Check her proxy settings, Suspect they are looping back

I think you are right about the LoopBack. History :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm:

Might just wipe machine as it has issues ever since she 'upgraded to Win10 by accident!'. Somehow either it or she switches to the colour scheme for high contrast...
