I'm sure I told my HDD to series record The Game, but it hasn't recorded the last episode and it's too late for catchup, and it's not so important that I want to buy a boxed set, if one is available....

I've googled, of course, and found this on pbs.org: CS, which stands for 0-chlorobenzalmalononitrile ... which makes no sense as there is no S in the chemical name. I also found that it was discovered...

I set my 'black box' Sony hard disk recorder to record the last few episodes of Fargo. It recorded the episodes up to June 15, but it didn't record the last episode on June 22. Any ideas why not? I've...

Gness had the same problem as I did-- crackly phones. I hope he/she might see this. My son-in-law came round. He seems to know a lot about phones and he has some test equipment. He found there was a...

I have several very old - 50+ years - black and white film negatives 6 cm X 9 cm. They are curled up very tightly into cylinders 2 cm in diameter. Any ideas on how I might get them flat so I could...
