Re: MARCH 2020 Quarterly Photo Gallery Entries

Have you activated the notification tab in your account setting Andy. That way you will receive either emails or when you log in or refresh the site you will see any notifications to any thread you have commented on.

You are so right about Philipy by the way, he does an excellent job on here.

Re: Battery charging advice please
