There's a web site "My Heritage.Com" that is allowing you to load up as many old photos as you want (normally it's limited to 2) that enhances them and colours them in. It does do a few weird things to peoples features if you look very closely and it guesses the colours, but as the photos are generally old and you don't know what the colours are that's forgivable. It really brings an amazing new dimension to old photos. Here's my mum and dad on their wedding day.

I keep receiving a "This Connection has timed out" message. It has happened three times today and is most annoying.

Is it that more people are using their computers due to C19 lockdown?

Is it the current heatwave affecting the signals?

Do I just have a useless ISP?

Should I just switch off and go to bed?

Obviously the forum Rightards are otherwise engaged at the moment.

But the news is that we are in the biggest recession in history.

The official definition of a 'recession' is two quarters of negative growth.

Well growth in the first quarter was -2.2%. Which isn't good, but it's within the normal margins, down to the political error of Brexit and normal cyclical factors, plus the beginnings of he Covid-19 crisis.

But growth in the second quarter was -20.4%, the biggest fall in a single quarter since records began, as far as I can see. The main cause here is the lockdown caused by the Covid-19 crisis.

Well there's only one way that this can lead. Redundancies, home repossessions and bankruptcies.

I sincerely hope everyone on this forum will be okay in this crisis. That you will be able to keep your job, or get another one if you can't. That you will be able to keep your house. That you will not be made destitute, and relying on food banks and soup kitchens.

Covid-19 is a natural phenomenon, I'm not denying that, although the balls-ups over it by right-wing politicians on both sides of the Atlantic have made it worse. We'll just have to see how this goes.
