Re: DPD couriers ..

our local driver the other day told me that even if early they are not allowed to deliver - they have to wait until after the earlier of the time range... however I have trained most of our delivery drivers to open the door / stroke the dog / yell at me / leave parcel / etc. :) I pop down and sign w...

Re: DPD couriers ..

Any of the couriers are basically dependant on the drivers - the courier model is a tough one, the drivers aren't paid a fortune, the hours are long and every delivery which is non standard takes time / costs them money - however there are good drivers around - we have some excellent ones around her...

Re: Any advice on giving a mac a new lease of life?

yes - hard disk space, the hard disk is used as RAM swap space, so if you were running short it would slow the machine down to a crawl... depending on how long you intend to keep your computer I would consider maxing out the RAM - it really does make a huge difference, but depends on what you are ru...

Re: Register for Windows 10 Upgrade

I think that Office 365 is a better match between Mac / PC - certinaly no issues with clients who have the Mac versions and our using the PC versions...

Re: Register for Windows 10 Upgrade

I think that Microsoft recognise the concerns after windows 8 proving to be slightly less than optimal... one major reason for the year during which you can upgrade is that it gives time for the early adopters to find any issues - and to reassure the others that it will be fine to update...
