The Lighter Side / Brecon town (Powys) - help with an old recitation please
« on: Wednesday 12 September 18 23:31 BST (UK)  »
My aunt, Brecon born and bred, used to recite, years ago, some comic verses based on Brecon place-names which I have almost completely forgotten; the only words I remember are: " ... was so narrow it fell into Old Bill's barrow." I would dearly love to recover the verses.

Cymraeg - Welsh Language / "Y" ar enw tref Gymreig a "The" yn Lloegr
« on: Friday 31 August 18 00:12 BST (UK)  »
Mae llawer o enwau trefi/pentrefi Cymreig yn dangos bod "Y" wedi bod (neu'n dal i fod) ar ddechrau'r enwau - Y Borth, Y Bont Faen, Y Drenewydd, Y Felinheli, Y Waun ayyb, ond ni allaf feddwl am enwau ar drefi Seisnig sy'n dechrau efo "The" i gyfateb. Tybed fedr rhywun rhoi enghraifft neu ddwy imi?

My fortnightly 'Computeractive' magazine in its current issue (534, Aug 15 - 28, 2.10) features the above trial for the price of the magazine. Not tried it yet myself.

Cymraeg - Welsh Language / Brad y Llyfrau Gleision

The Lighter Side / "Ignoring" Ancestry hints
« on: Saturday 21 July 18 00:27 BST (UK)  »
I have found, from hints, several useful public trees which include my easily-identifiable ancestor, but some trees are offered which have people of the right names but from other places; I have tried to dispose of the irrelevant trees by clicking on the 'select tree' box then on the 'cancel' box, but the tree stays up. I know Ancestry has another 'ignore' function which works well, but it doesn't seem to be an option in this respect. Can some kind Chatter help me to stop meeting the irrelevant trees again and again?

Technical Help / Unwanted pop-up from Windows Action Center
« on: Wednesday 04 July 18 00:27 BST (UK)  »
I use Windows 7, browsing on Firefox; since 4 or 5 days a pop-up message has lodged itself on my screen saying 'Action Center No current issues detected'. The message box cannot be moved, a right-click on the mouse gives no menu, and opening Action Center gives no option to close it. A shut-down and restart has no effect. The box doesn't even have a close or minimize button. Would be grateful for any suggestions. Also the box overlays any other page I open.

Technical Help / Calamitous Firefox Quantum update
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 00:41 BST (UK)  »
Downloaded the above last night and have spent ages since trying to recover my saved logins with passwords, which I rely on considerably. Visits to the Firefox help forums have discovered several people in the same fix, but with no simple solution to the problem. I would love to read other users' moans about this so as not to feel completely isolated, and if any Firefox fan (as I have been for years) has found a solution I would love to hear from them, congratulate them and benefit from their expertise.
        Now where did I store my library pin . . .
