1.0 out of 5 stars A complete waste of money., 24 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly, this program does not do what it 'says on the tin'.
I thought I'd found something clever - but, no.
I bought a new PC and wanted to transfer Microsoft Flight Sim (FSX) onto the new one - this would have saved literally hours of installing and downloading etc.
The program runs well and analyses all the applications on your old PC to see what can be moved.
Sadly, only about one-in-four apps is transferable and, guess what, FSX isn't!
They don'y tell you this before you buy it!
I've wasted my money completely.
The only apps it seemed able to transfer were things like Adobe Reader - but you can download a new version of that in seconds.
Useless.

4.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive history of communism, 8 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very full and absorbing history - read it to send me to sleep whilst travelling - great in small chunks as a soperific.
Seriously - a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent background to homeopathy and Spiritualism - very inspiring, 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fabulous book detailing the life of Samuel Hahneman and that of William Lilley, a 20th century spiritual healer and homeopath.
This second section is truly inspiring - it is probably the most easily read and rational explanation of spiritualism that I've read anywhere - it makes this difficult subject readily understood and I am so much the wiser for reading it.
Highly recommended - unusually readable for a book on these subjects.


Confessions of a GP (The Confessions Series)
Confessions of a GP (The Confessions Series)
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny and realistic, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a real breath of fresh air – it gives you a proper insight into the day to day life of a GP in today's NHS.
A more realistic portrayal of a GPs life is hard to imagine.
This book ought to be compulsory reading for any sixth form student who proposes to study medicine.

This excellent product really does the job – it is well designed, quiet and works extremely well.
Highly recommended.
Avoid Ebac dehumidifiers - they are rubbish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I owned an Ebac dehumidifier previously – it "gave up the ghost" after two years of vaguely satisfactory operation, during which time it had been repaired by the manufacturer and returned to me.
I decided to buy a new dehumidifier and, naturally, looked at these products first – something that I later came to regret.
This company's products remind me of British cars in the 1970s – poorly designed and extraordinarily badly made.
There are other companies that design and make dehumidifiers well – why anybody buys an Ebac product is beyond me.
Avoid at all costs

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite TV series available on DVD, 13 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Parade's End [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I just love this version of the previously unknown classic.
What superb acting, what a superb atmosphere and what a superb portrayal of early 20th-century upper-class Britain.
Love it, love it, love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow - superb, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Voice recognition software really has come on leaps and bounds over the last 20 years, which is when I first tried Dragon software.
Back in those days, it really was a waste of time since you spent as long correcting the errors as you would have done typing it in in the first place.
These days, however, things have changed dramatically and version 12 is almost perfect.
For classic "two fingered typists" such as myself, it makes producing something like this an absolute breeze whereas, formally, it would have been very difficult and demanding.
I have dictated all the above and, so far, there have been no errors.
I heartily recommend this excellent (but a very complex) software.
The installation process is very complex – you need to allow about two hours for this process

2.0 out of 5 stars Very odd, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You have to be a bit 'off the wall' to enjoy this.
Really very strange indeed.
OK for the incense burning hippies I suppose.
