Re: Spring Forward...

Yup, certainly spring, @Anonymous . I used to spend hours watching the lambs at a farm quite close to me, but the farmer switched to dairy cattle a few years back, and young calves don't have quite the same appeal, although they do come and say hello if you stand still and quiet for long enough.

One of your photos?

 No, sorry not.

We go up to the Lakes each Spring (and Autumn), and already have hundreds of lamb pix !

Re: Spring Forward...

We have a small but busy farm right opposite our cottage with cattle, pigs, sheep... and silage! Even got a couple of horses grazing which our grandchildren love to feed with apples when we have some to spare. Popular with walkers (although not so much these days) as a public footpath runs right through it.

Re: Spring Forward...

I just noticed my computer clock was showing 13:06.

I went into Time and Date settings, turned off 'Set the Time Automatically' and turned it back on again.

The clock changed from 13:07 to 14:07.

I can't remember having this 'failure to adjust automatically' before.

I've just checked my laptop and that's ok.

Just thought it a bit odd.

Hello

 

On my windows 10 the only thing not set on auto is Time zone, just an idea.

 

Good luck

@Strat 

Perhaps you forgot to wind it up?

Seriously though, I'm not sure what the default interval is nowadays in Windows, but the 'clock' used to check the NTP server at pre-determined intervals, which ISTR were quite a bit longer than that required to avoid the situation you describe.

ISTR it is necessary to delve into the Registry to shorten the poll interval.

I just found this article which may be useful;

@DE5T1NY 

Can't you just temporarily allow ads on that particular page? That's all I had to do.

Re: Spring Forward...

Slightly OT, but the way Windows98 dealt with the millennium was to treat all years represented by just two digits as being between 1931 and 2030.  If my 20-year-old laptop is still alive in 2030, it'll be confused.  I needn't worry I suppose, since the clock battery is flat and the clock is perpetually displaying 10 a.m. on 30th May 1998 I think it is.  Should I use it for e-mails or writing letters in Word2000, I have to remember to change the date manually.

A cold weather snap bringing snow and ice to parts of the UK this week has raised concerns for farmers trying to protect their newborn lambs from the elements.

Lambing season, which is recognised by many as the start to spring, is a significant event in British farming calendars.

 

But the wintry weather during this season's peak has roused worries over the newborns' ability to survive.
