1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Hasn't been an issue but then the photo shop was pretty much always used for paper copies of photos when we had low cost inkjet printers and before. In truth the paper copies of photos have been largely sitting in unopened card boxes and albums for fair few years. Almost always use a memory stick plugged into a phone, tablet, laptop or TV for remotely showing photos these days. Probably ought to sort out some online way of doing it so the memory stick is not necessary like recent photos taken on the mobile.

    I found inkjet absolutely useless and agree that you spend more time, ink and energy cleaning them. I gave up and bought an HP 135 Laser B/W printer for Christmas, perfect prints and reliable with super software (as long as you ignore the part that tries to sell you toner etc every few days - which is the only down side I have found). It takes other makers toner cartridge refills with no problem and suits my needs.

    I also have a Brother Laser which stands unused for months at a time in a second home and it works on the button when needed but the software is not as good.

    The HP was on Special Offer so price/features won the day.

    Thanks for all your suggestions and observations, folks; as a consequence of which I am considerably more apprised than I was, which admittedly was from a very low base.

    There's a well-known cynical saying to ask a teenager while he still knows everything but here in aquatic land there's nearly always an answer or ten derived from lifetimes of experience. I shall peruse all posts again and draw up a shortlist of appropriate preferences.
