    Places To Visit

    Lots to do on the South! As Ian has already mentioned, moor up at Oulton Broad and take the short train ride (it's less than a fiver return). Beccles is a lovely place to visit, lots of nice pubs and cafes and it's on a pretty stretch of the river. Waveney River Centre is a good overnight stop and the shower block is always popular with us. The pub and other facilities on site make it a good stopover after a long trek from the North.

    Loyalty

    The loyalty scheme is pretty good really. If you look at what the prices are and the discount you get on the sixth booking then they're very hard to beat on price. There are also a number of gems in the classic fleet which are dirt cheap and much better than far more expensive offerings from other yards. I'm tempted to try other yards but you can't beat the price, and the boats are generally a better standard than the other big yards (apart perhaps from NBD, but then you do pay heavily for it.).

    Notifications

    I had that, but once I cleared my cache it was all good. I note that the forum has recently switched to using https (which is much more secure), so that may be confusing some browsers? A cache clear fixes it though.

    Old Windows Version Partition.

    Okay. As you may remember, the 64-bit version of WinXP is based on Windows 2003 Server, and not the regular WinXP. 64-bit Windows was pretty rare then so this means a lot of software doesn't run on it. You'll need to use the regular 32-bit version of WinXP for stuff like that to work. You may want to just install WinXP on a separate partition, although a VM ought to work.

    Old Windows Version Partition.

    So the VM can see the contents of the disc, but SafeDisc won't authenticate the disc? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Old Windows Version Partition.

    Hmmm Yeah that makes sense. I think I would probably go with spinning up a WinXP partition or VM as Paul is doing. It will probably be quicker. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    I think it is being used specifically for this purpose, and then moved away from once the problem is solved? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Old Windows Version Partition.

    Looking at the problem another way, what is the software and what activation method does it use? Disc-based sounds like a packer, probably either SafeDisc or SecuROM. Might there be an activation crack available which gets round the problem? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Electrifying News From Goodchild

    And that's where the UK needs to shift away from coal-fired etc. If every new build house had to have a few KW of Solar on the roof, and new factory and office buildings had to have them on the roof then we'd have much less reliance on power stations. The installed cost is low as a percentage on housing so why are we not doing it?

    The power stations which power the oil refineries? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app

    Electrifying News From Goodchild

    The thing people forget about electric vehicles is that it cuts out the network of fuel tankers, and the pollution and danger that goes with them. And is the energy used to generate the electricity much different to that used in refining oil? The other benefit is air quality in cities, and if the UK would introduce mandatory solar installations on new buildings (particularly commercial ones) there would be a lot less dependence on fossil fuels.

    3 Rivers Race 2018

    An excellent result for the Skipper of Comet, all things considered!

    Have you considered a Calypso? They're a very spacious boat for their size and good side decks on them too. These ones sold a while ago, but give you an idea of the space https://www.nya.co.uk/boats-for-sale/calypso-28/ https://www.nya.co.uk/boats-for-sale/calypso-28-12/
