    To bring the thread to a tidy end this is the solution that is working for me:

    - The Mindfulclock (linked to above) starts with my PC.
    - It's configured to play a chime every 15 minutes on...
  2. Now I'm being fussy....

    Thank you guys for the suggestions!

    jsalpha2 Yesterday I changed my google search to include 'chimes' and found the same page. The site also has an downloadable chimer which is what I'm using at...
  3. Another useful suggestion..

    Both of those look as if they could work more simply than hacking around with batch files. I assume NIRCMD called from a batch file means I'll still have the DOS window sitting open the whole day...
  4. Thanks for the responses!

    I'd already looked there as part of my initial hunt. Some of the clocks there are Vista/XP vintage and won't run on Win10. The others all seem to allow repeats in units of days/weeks/months - but...
  5. Simple clock chimes - am I missing something ?

    I tend to get absorbed in things and not notice the passing of time. To remind me to pay attention I want to be able to set my PC to issue a little beep every 15 minutes. But because I leave my PC...

    TerryR40 -
    If you're comfortable with Win7 the transition to Win10 is not hard. Certainly much less troublesome/confusing than going to Win8 or Win8.1.

    The thing that gave me the most trouble...

    Not everyone gets all the updates?

    The one change I was looking forward to is using Cortana with a local account.

    I'm in Hong Kong and had to jump through some hoops early on to try cortana out. I like it - but I'm not willing to...

    Thanks for that.
    Based on leaked screen shots and the fact the MS acquired Panda networks it seems that they will have some sort of P2P over LAN update available.
  9. Thinking ahead - this could get really messy if Windows 10 'Auto Downloads"

    Just re-read the Win-10 Official Adware Upgrade Notification in my system tray and these stood out to me:

    * It will download once available
    * You'll get a notification after Windows 10 is...
  10. Follow up: The in-place re-install of windows 7...

    Follow up:
    The in-place re-install of windows 7 seemed to work, but then I got a bunch of failed updates etc. Couldn't upgrade IE 8 to IE 11 etc. I don't know if this is related to the re-install /...
  11. That looks like the problem! The BIOS was at A04...

    That looks like the problem! The BIOS was at A04 (Aug 2008). I've upgraded to the latest (A11, 2012) which I assume will be SLIC 2.1 compliant.

    The box is a Precision T5400 and Dell has...
  12. Interesting idea - but the free upgrade to...

    Interesting idea - but the free upgrade to Windows will only be for "qualified new or existing Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices" and I'm pretty sure that an unactivated copy...
  13. Thanks for the suggestion. I have the original...

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I have the original Vista license key. What I don't have is the new key that allowed the free upgrade from Vista to Win7. I didn't get it from the seller, and I wiped...
  14. Dell Vista/Win7 licencing upgrade issue. Looking for suggestions.

    I recently acquired an old Dell precision workstation running Win 7 on an 80GB disk. I swapped the disc for a new SSD, and installed a fresh copy of Win 7 from a Dell OS disk. I wasn't asked for a...
  15. Reviving ancient Visual Basic project: possible?

    I've been asked to evaluate the difficulty of extracting data from an old VB project and have a couple of questions for any VB experts out there (That's you lot :)

    It's a custom built application...

    Thanks for the replies.

    I've done some more research and I'm aware of the Admin panel that is used to control the licences and who they are assigned to. But I still cant find an answer to the...
  17. Office 365: Managing five licenses per user

    I'm helping a small office that is considering upgrading from Office 2007 to Office 365 Midsize Business.

    One of the main attractions for them is the fact that for each user licence (US$180/year)...

    So, to summarise....

    For what it's worth - I've used teamviewer to access both my own PC at home (as the original poster wants) and to remote control friends and family's at their request.

    I have also remote...

    Is it really more secure to use passwords made of completely random strings? Surely the most important factor in making a password hard to guess is its length?

    my reasoning is -

    Thanks - works perfectly!

  25. Calculate average, variable date range and number of entries per day?

    I have a data table with a date/time stamp in column A and corresponding values in columns B, C, D. The readings are sporadic - there may be any number from 0 to 3 entries on a given day. The...
