A Most Humble Apology!
When this season a few months ago looked as if it was
going to be a complete wash-out, I made the very stupid mistake of
deciding to upgrade my PC and some other kit. What makes that decision
worse was that I knew setting up a new machine is never simple and I
also should have known that Microsoft, in their wisdom, would make it
even more difficult that installing and setting up previous operating
systems. I yearn for the old days of XP which I still feel is the
simplest (and therefore the best) that they produced. Luckily I had an
old XP machine standing by and hence have been able to keep up with
And then along came a plethora of matches as clubs
tried to catch up on all they'd missed. That meant that I was full
time downloading images, doing some labelling and charging batteries,
very likely for the very next day. I am not sure I recall doing three
matches in three days before, although I'm not complaining about this
- far from it. It was good to try and make up for all that I had
missed during 'lockdown'.
All this, of course, meant that the web site became
neglected as I struggled (and am still struggling) with Win 10 (asking
where the heck have that put that feature this time?) and
womenscricket.net shot down the list as I was confident (silly me)
that it wouldn't take long.
Well I return here to where I should perhaps have
been all along, using an old laptop as the new shiny machine sulks
because I'm not using it. Hence my apology above and sorry for the
delay for those who do visit regularly.
By contrast, I'd like to add my thanks to Hursley
Park CC who I have visited only very occasionally before but in 2020
have been most hospitable. It's been a pleasure to trip there most
weekends in the past month or so, and I promise to get some shots of
you on this site very soon. (check out their match v
Ropley CC and
with one against Alton to appear shortly. I have so many images still
to check through.
