Why You Should Visit Cornwall For a Great Holiday in the UK

Holiday Destinations In Cornwall

Holidays in the UK are on the rise. With travel restrictions still looming over us, we are choosing to take our holidays in blighty.

A favourite destination for many is Cornwall. Personally, I love St Ives and Carbis Bay the most but everyone’s favourite will be different.

The sheer joy and beauty of the Cornish coast is something to behold and should be a bucket list essential. Cornwall offers fabulous beaches, great food and of course Cornish Pasties!

Cream tea is also an essential part of any Cornish holiday, just make sure to put the jam on first or you’ll upset the locals. Seafood is everywhere you turn in coastal towns and villages and it doesn’t get any fresher than straight off the boat.

Try a crab sandwich while you’re there, you won’t regret it. A Cornish King crab is a popular choice.

Cornwall is a beautiful place to visit, with a lot of activities to do.

Cornwall is an English county in the southwest of the country. It is bordered by Devon to the east, Somerset to the north, and Dorset to the west.

Cornwall has a number of tourist attractions that are worth visiting. You can visit some of them in a day trip from London.

There are many things to do in Cornwall, but here are some highlights:

  • Fishing

  • Surfing

  • Walking

  • Cycling along coastal paths

  • Sailing or kayaking on the beautiful waterways

The first thing you should do in cornwall is going fishing. You can go fishing either from the shore or from a boat. If you’re not into fishing, there are other activities such as walking and surfing that you could try.

If you want to go sailing, then you will need to get a license from the coastguard office in Falmouth. It’s important that you have this license before going for a sail because it’s illegal without one.

If Your Computer Is Behaving Strangely You May Need a Computer Repair Technician

I am an IT Technician and run a small independent business that offers computer repair Macclesfield. This article will help you decide if your computer requires attention from a professional.

Is your computer being a complete pain in the neck? Has it suddenly slowed to a crawl and driving you mad or is it freezing and crashing (usually when you’re right in the middle of something important). You may have even experienced the BSOD or blue screen of death although this is seen less with newer operating systems such as Windows 7 & Windows 8. These symptoms are usually a good indication that there is a fault on your computer.computer repair macclesfield

Causes of Computer Problems

There are many things that can cause computer problems and a few of the more common are listed below

Virus Infection

In our connected world it is all too common to get a virus or malware on your computer. Signs that you may have been infected include:

  • Unwanted pop-ups or adverts
  • Mysterious toolbars added to your browser. Examples are My Web Search & Delta Toolbar
  • Your homepage has been changed to an unfamiliar search engine or an unknown page
  • You receive a warning that your computer is infected and you are asked to “Fix it now”
  • Your Internet connection may stop working

If you are experiencing any of the above it may be wise to have a qualified technician take a look at the PC for you. Any local computer repair business worth its salt will have no trouble removing the problems for you. This should not be too expensive and should be no more than around £80

Hard Disk Failure

All computers have a hard disk or drive which stores the operating system and your data. They are mainly mechanical with moving parts (Newer solid state disks use flash memory and have no moving parts) which means they can fail, and they often do.

If you are fortunate the data on the disk can be retrieved by a computer technician. If the disk is completely unreadable your only other choice is a specialist data recovery company but the fees can run into the hundreds. The disk is dismantled in a clean environment and special equipment is used to read the platters from inside the disk.

Power Supply Unit Failure

Failure of the computer power supply unit is one of the most often seen problems. The user presses the power button and nothing happens and confusion ensues. Replacement of a PSU or power supply unit is a relatively simple and inexpensive repair for a technician and can usually be done on the same day.

CPU Overheating

The CPU or processor gets extremely hot when running and requires a heat sink with a fan attached to cool it. It will still be very hot but processors are designed to tolerate heat up to a certain temperature. If this temperature is exceeded, one of two things can happen. If the BIOS has the correct settings the computer will shut down to prevent the CPU burning out. If no safety setting is in place the computer will usually restart randomly.

If this happens to your computer it’s a good indication that the cooling fan is either broken of blocked up with dust to a point where it can’t do its job any longer. This will need immediate attention to rectify the problem as your CPU needs to be adequately cooled or it won’t last long.
