Once again we’re calling on members to put pen to paper to provide an article for The Cryptian. The publication only survives on people taking part to provide content so if you feel you would like to contribute then please do contact me. It would be great to get some fresh and original articles for the next publication.
In the last eNews I was pleased to tell you about the fantastic work done by Richard Briggs with digitising some of the OCC Archive which is held in the Heritage Hub in Gloucester. The first phase of this work was carried out with the kind sponsorship of one of our members and we’re now looking for further sponsorship to continue this vital work. If you are interested then please do contact me via email@example.com You can view the work being done here: https://oldcryptians.org/club-archive/
By changing the URL you use to access Amazon you could be donating 0.5% of the purchase price to the Bursary Fund every time you shop. So far, OCs have raised £75 with no effort required! Next time you are tempted to cycle Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise money for the bursary, think again and set up the the Amazon way – no blisters, no planning, no effort.
The simplest way to do this is to use the smile.amazon.co.uk from any PC, laptop or mobile device. If this is your first time there, you will be asked to accept cookies – I recommend not accepting all cookies and use the confirm my choice option. Annoyingly this takes you away from the page you want to be on, So, go back to https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1094627-0 and select Start Shopping.
If you use the Amazon app on an Android phone/tablet you can set up smile.amazon in the Settings.
Check that you have the latest version of the Amazon app. Update instructions are here.
Open the Amazon Shopping app on your device.
Go into the main menu of the Amazon Shopping app and tap into ‘Settings’.
Tap ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn Amazon Smile on.
The instructions seem to suggest that it is the same for the iPhone/iPad app, but I don’t see it on my phone. Instead I have saved the page using “Add to home screen” from the share options. This saves the page you are looking at as a new “app” on your home screen (with the Amazon Smile logo).
