  1. Where to buy a Whippet puppy? Or kitten? Maybe not for the OP, but for anyone else that would like to adopt a greyhound.  My sister in law adopted two greyhounds and is very happy with them.
  2. Any IT experts out there? Home WIFI problems

    So I had a bit of a play, and now have separated the 2.4 and 5 GHz.  I had tried to do this before but chickened out as I was worried I would muck everything up.  I am not very computer savvy but my husband is even less so, so I google a lot for solutions.  It is working a bit better and I have also moved the cordless phone, and that seems to have helped.  The repeater is set up for mesh but is probably not in the best position - we are lacking electricity sockets in the middle of the house.  We want to do some renovation on the ground floor so I am seriously considering getting some wired solutions, especially for the home PC and our work laptops.  Thanks for the help here!
  3. Any IT experts out there? Home WIFI problems

    Thanks for the info.  I can log into the admin interface and will give it a go later.  Although not in a Mehrfamilienhaus, we have teenagers and a lot of different devices accessing the wifi. The router is on the ground floor and travels up to our bedroom ok, but doesn't travel as reliably to the other side of the ground floor, which is where I have my corona home office.  Husband is in the dining room and that works better.  I will try and follow your advice and let you know how I get on.  Thanks!!

    I have the same issue and even have the vodafone repeater.  I have used a wifi app and it seems that if I could change channel or change to 5GHz, I would be okay but I can't seem to do either.  I am sure that in the past I have changed the channel, but can't seem to do that in the router settings any more.  I have the FritzBox! 6490 Cable.  I would be very grateful for some advice.  
  5. The English Teacher's Corner

    At my British secondary school, we didn't learn a lot of grammar.  I first learnt about the -ize vs -ise discussion through an episode of Inspector Morse.  Morse says that the dead man ('an Oxford man') could not possibly have written his suicide note because the note had a (particular) word written with the -ise ending.  In my first post-University job, we published reports and had an in-house editor.  She taught me that if you can make an -ization it should be -ize, if not, it should be -ise.  That is probably approximately in line with the OUP rules and is generally what I apply.  I know that my grammar is not perfect so try not to ever criticize unless I am asked to give feedback.  I do explain to my non-English colleagues that I have been away from the UK so long that I am not always sure what is right or wrong. I don't know if this is typical, but in recent years I was in conversation with a British junior school teacher.  She was complaining about immigrant parents and said 'and they can't even speak proper'.  My companion burst out laughing and she had no idea why he was laughing.  
  6. Your summary looks good to me.  A part of the company I worked for was transferred to another legal entity.  Those of us that were moved all got a long document from our employer but we did not sign a new contract.
