General Discussion / Backing tracks?
« on: April 24, 2019, 06:37:12 PM »
Anyone know a good source of free backing tracks to play along with?  I've seen a few around the web, and on YouTube, but just wondering if you have a favourite place to get them from.

If you know of a good website please post it below, and I'll add it to a list in this first post. Thanks

Just curious as to what version and build of Windows everyone is using.

I recently upgraded this laptop to Windows 10 version 1809.  Must say it's the most unstable update for Windows 10 so far.  Does some really weird things.  Noticed when I shut it down, next time I boot it up one or more browser windows are open, and giving me message about a session not closing properly.  I'll have to grab the exact error next time I see it.   Something just doesn't feel right with this build.

I know Microsoft had problem with this update when they first tried to release it, but thought they had fixed most of the problem now they have unleashed it again.  The original one was deleting files from some people who installed it, at least it hasn't done that to me.

General Discussion / How to enable GodMode in Windows 10
« on: April 14, 2018, 04:37:10 PM »
Fed up with searching around all the various settings pages to find a specific setting in Windows 10.  Well thankfully there's a way to see all your settings in one place.   GodMode.

It's bee around, I believe since Windows 7, and is still there on Windows 10.  So how do I activate it.

Right click your desktop, and click new folder from the menu.

Rename that new folder by copying and pasting the line below, exactly as is, complete with GodMode, the period and the brackets.


The folder icon will change to a control panel icon. Double-click on that new icon to see all your settings and controls in one place, and all organised under their various headings.

Electric Guitar / Fake Wilkinson pickups.
« on: March 12, 2018, 08:55:05 PM »
Been seeing a lot of posts around the web regarding fake Wilkinson pickups being fitted to some guitars, namely Harley Benton guitars.  Seems the factory was being palmed off with these fake pickups by the suppliers.

Now noticed that Harley Benton guitars now come with Roswell pickups in place of the Wilkinson one's although some or most of the other hardware is still Wilkinson.

That said, Harley Benton still seem to be putting out some cracking guitars, at great prices.

Some info, and a sneak peak at the new range of HB guitars.
