I don't get that... just the usual cookie malarky

Maybe your ad blocker isn't as thorough as mine  ;D

I can read it on this tablet I see as the big banner moaning about ad blocking scrolls up but on the laptop it wouldn't. I'll recheck that.

OK on the laptop I see 2 scroll bars. One just moves the ad blocker complaint up and down a bit and the other scrolls the page behind it. There would be ways around this but I can't be bothered as if desperate to read something I can set the pihole to be disabled.

Notice in the bottom picture that the pihole is blocking 32.5% of all requests. Just shows how many ads there are.

Thanks for your reply zoony, besides other things Harwich is steeped in history of which I am very proud......I was bred and born in Harwich and apart from living for 2 years abroad, I have spent 75 of my 77 years living in Harwich and I just couldn't live anywhere else. :) :) :)

Morning, Bee. Up early or couldn’t sleep?

I'm nearly always awake by four or so, sometimes earlier. A couple of weeks ago I had a night when I didn't manage to sleep at all

I know how that feels Mike, I am very much the same myself.

Every now and then it catches up with me during the day - usually early evening. Couple of months or more ago I sat down to watch something on the box at about seven thirty or so - woke at twenty past one in the morning and then, of course, couldn't get back to sleep

Good news in a mysterious way.
Stand up, or give up.

I found can on the tablet. I can on the laptop if I make the effort to disable the pihole temporarily. So far I haven't though.
