I have just been working on a laptop that had the dreaded line syndrome. It had numerous, running vertically down the screen of all different colours. I removed the screen and placed half of the front cover from a PCA magazine in front of the wiring strips, replaced the screen and the Lines have gone.


Bit Blue Peter but it’s done the job.

Just wait until the summer or it gets used in a humid environment, the PCA "insulator" absorbs moisture, and you should have quite a kaleidescope of lines!

I live in Lancashire, I read a history book once that claimed we have had a summer but no one believes it.

FE, matron isn't due for another few hours so I could end up wallpapering my monitors from the outside.

I know what you mean. I was born/went to school in Morecambe and university in Salford. My parents used to tell me they had a summer in 1959, but I was too small to remember.

I’ve spent quite a lot of time in Morecambe at the platform. Place has come on a lot recently, its worth a visit if just to see the statue of Eric Morecambe on the front.

Don't complain, things could be a lot worse.
The wettest year ever recorded occurred in the town of Cherrapunji, in northeastern India, in 1861. That year annual rainfall reached 26 metres. The town routinely records over 10 metres of rainfall in a year.

I'm currently negotiating for the umbrella concession there.

Now we moved have onto weather - I some times think I live on another planet tohe folk near by.
Last Tuesday for example I walked round the corner to see my chum and he and his missus commented on the hailstorm that pounded the town centre that afternoon.
Now we live about 3/4 of mile out of town on top on a ridge - overlooking the Thames - blue sky - all afternoon - not a splash - and this frequently happens the town gets a soaking or ankle deep in snow and us up here nowt. But it is always a degree or two colder than down there.

I live on the Isle of Wight and we have a microclimate that we keep very quiet about!
