Re: Plea for Help

Hi,

It may well be worthwhile contacting Shelter, they will hopefully help or be able to advise you. Most people think it is a charity for the homeless, but they are fantastic for letting you know your rights and general help if in renting. Shelter Wales

Re: Dartmoor Low Flying ?

Hi,

There is still some activity on the moors. I wouldn't say there is lots of activity, but not uncommon if lucky to get Tornado's / F15's / Hawks in the area.

Re: SW advice

Hi, Just to add if using Runway 08 at Exeter may get the odd C17, which will turn onto the ILS at Newton Abbot, especially if at the A38 end. You do get a few jets heading to the Dartmoor ranges and airways the USAF C17's and KC135's. The helicopters often route between Newton Abbot and Torquay. Stu...

Re: Trump visit

Hi, In the past when President Clinton landed in AF1, I was camping at the Willows, the police and security on the base closed all the roads and viewing areas, moving along anyone parked up. It was touch and go if we where going to be evicted off the campsite or not, in the end they kept a eye on us...

Re: Predannack 10/5/2018

Hi,

I am unable to confirm the exact one, but ZH851 (Excal84) and ZH853 (Tiger69) where up and about in that area around that time. I would say taking a guess ZH853 was the more likely candidate.

Hi,

I don't know if helps but ZJ165 was active. ZM414, I thought only was operating off the Cornish coast and didn't do a approach at Newquay.

Hi, I'm sorry to say in front of the OP but the answer is backups! backups! backups! Totally agree. I used to try and drum this into my children, yet still they lost work after their computer or drive failed. Same happens when customers use PVR's to store programmes and videos.

Re: Hard-drive help.

Hi, I can't see where it says it was dropped. I was just making a general comment, not that this one was dropped. I also was assuming it is a SATA HDD in a enclosure. I have had faulty bearings causing problems, like you posted. But I am sure I am right even the more modern SATA drives consist of di...

Hi, If you suspect the disk has failed in some way then the last thing you want to do is try and spin it up! Especially if suspect the unit has suffered say being dropped. The read / write styli is on a arm that swings over the disc's. If jammed due to physical damage could scratch the disc, causing...

Re: Hard-drive help.

Hi, I think it depends how it failed. If the HDD disc failed then you may have to go to a specialist company. It may not be recoverable, if mechanical. Not used this software, but there are other companies maybe worth a look at link . If it is the interface maybe this worth a try link Again other pl...

Hi,

One thought

23/09 168071 KC130J (BRNC031) flew Northbound on the airway from Berryhead / Exmor, around that time. I saw it over here, heading towards Exeter airport.
