Bits & Pieces

iPhone 5s battery replace

My first iPhone 5s battery change! - I had a totally dead 5s, it wouldn’t charge, only showed a dim screen and no logo, I suspected a dead battery. I watched the battery change video on iFixit, it looked simple enough but as usual nothing ever goes exactly as planned. For some reason the screen refused to be removed using the sucker, I ended up going round the screen with the point of a small penknife to ‘break’ the seal of whatever was holding it. The Home button cable then popped off almost without any help from me - I was dreading putting that back on!

CCTV and Windows 10!

I use several IP cameras to monitor our house (and keep an eye on my cats!), I used a Windows machine for several years along with an excellent ‘Donationware’ software program called Contaware, it showed 4 cameras, 3 IP and one analogue displayed on screen and all the usual options like record, screenshot etc, I particularly liked the function to review moving thumbnails allowing for quick reviewing of recorded clips.

No Thanks - Yes please!

I get asked occasionally to help out with computer or software issues, as I live in a rural area some of those people can be a reasonable drive away, one in particular is 14 miles away, I used TeamViewer to access his computer and we were able to solve many problems over a period of time, Teamviewer then changed their T&C's and the cost for me would outweigh the benefits…..
