My PC is a SonyVaio EC series which was launched in June 2010, and features a 17.3" 1920x1080 LED-backlit screen, 320-500GB hard drive, or 2x320GB or 2x500GB drives, ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 or 5650 GPU – this notebook weighs 7.3lbs, and has 4 hours battery life.
My screen is 0.43 metres (1 ft 5 in)
I always edit on Full screen.

I routinely delete material from my Talk page but a selection of threads – between September 6, 2011 and 18 January, 2015 – can be found here.
I bet you will love The Armed Man, but we couldn't afford it. Gloria is expensive enough. Three choirs, two conductors, - that's how we did Verdi's Requiem also. --Gerda Arendt (tsalk) 20:07, 11 January 2015 (UTC)
Good evening, Softlavender! That is a very amusing clip. Great to hear from you. My given name goes back to King Arthur—one of his Knights of the Round Table—and I even have a page here on WikiGareth. It was not a common name back in 1942, but my mother loved it. Now, thanks to Gareth Edwards it is very popular here. All the best, — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 22:47, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
Cool info. As you may have guessed, I ran across that video on Martinevans123's page. :) Softlavender (talk) 00:19, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes, dear lady, DYK that Martin is my second-oldest [time, not age!] Wikipedia friend. The oldest being the subject of our recent coversation: he who has, sadly, left our company here, and is much missed. — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 10:04, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
* "The stores also have the nickname 'Badamana.'" Because that makes so much sense. Frankly, aside from the Kurdish, Greek, Armenian, Syrian, and you name it issues, this is another reason I try to stay away from Turkish subject matter at present. Softlavender (talk) 00:03, 27 January 2015 (UTC)
Ugh, Rod Stewart post-1973. Kill me now. Softlavender (talk) 09:38, 27 January 2015 (UTC) <?small>
The Wikipedia is a small place. Perhaps we'd best bombard the old Sweaty with emails, wishing him a belated happy Burns Night. Maybe he would come back for auld lang syne's sake? Softlavender (talk) 10:32, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Dear Gareth, would you mind having a quick look at this please? I'd love a view from a safe pair of hands, if you will pardon the mixed metaphor ... Thanks and best wishes DBaK (talk) 18:02, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Very unlikely, in my "view". Hardly a reliable source on its own. I would not support it. — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 19:32, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks very much! Best wishes DBaK (talk) 12:52, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
Drive: Thanks to everyone who participated in January's Backlog Elimination Drive. Of the 38 people who signed up for this drive, 21 copyedited at least one article. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.
Progress report: We were able to remove August 2013 from the general copyediting backlog and November 2014 from the request-page backlog. Many thanks, everyone!
Hello Gareth Griffith-Jones, love is the language of hearts and is the feeling that joins two souls and brings two hearts together in a bond. Taking love to the level of Wikipedia, spread the WikiLove by wishing each other Happy Valentine's Day, whether it be someone you have had disagreements with in the past, a good friend, or just some random person. Sending you a heartfelt and warm love on the eve,
Happy editing, Hafspajen (talk) 10:16, 14 February 2015 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) I think you'll find that the correct spelling is "larff" and that the "h" in "havin'" is optional. This is an encyclopaedia: please do try to keep standards up. Or you're NEXT, sunshine. Thank you and best wishes DBaK (talk) 12:13, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
You wot me ol' china?! I was too busy working out how to pay for my 3-bed drum in the East End of London, from an income that solely consists of selling three apples a week from my market stall. LugnutsDick Laurent is dead 13:46, 17 February 2015 (UTC)
I must admit that I'd probably prefer to get dragged to AN/I than have to watch that soap you like. I tend to avoid the Queen Vic like the plague. But having been obliged to watch part of "live week", I have to admit that Adam Woodyatt may well be one of our best television actors. (wow that's quite a wall of text over at Ian Beale, isn't it!)

Ha! When I first read the heading in the ToC, I assumed I had a post from the "disconnected nation that shares our language".
What a pleasant surprise to discover it is you, old friend. — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 17:12, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
You may have no cause for concern, good friend.
I have just been easing back from the job lately.
I shall pick it up again soon.
Cheers! — | Gareth Griffith-Jones |The WelshBuzzard| — 10:18, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
