Can anyone recommend a reliable person to sort out my laptop before I throw it out of the window please. Since upgrading to Windows 10 it's not been right.

Windows 10, absolutely awful operating system. Take it back to an older version, or go Apple
Although Windows 10 is not everyone's cup of tea, there are ways to make it work better. Come and speak to one of our local IT experts for free at Suffolk AgeUK Ipswich Help Centre (in Town Centre, opposite Sainsbury's) to get some some impartial ... [ more ]

Ipswich Ltd Hi Ipswich Ltd, Just heard back from the team, no they weren't specifically invited to attend the DCC this morning, but they are going to provide some convenient dates to get together and engage. Thanks, Matt, Customer Service.
Ipswich Ltd
So, IMT is showing resistance to the concept of an Upper Orwell Crossing yet they weren't inviting to a scheduled meeting to decide a planning application for the first step of it? Sounds very like local politics in action, however, going by ... [ more ]

Take Princes Street for example, when work finally got going they did it relatively quickly. Not fast but not too unreasonable. Before that it was months of little progress.

Ipswich Crime
