Just thought I'd throw a quick message out there to say that there are still talks about the future of PF1 and having it independent from PCWorld, be it the domain, the database, whatever... No actual details (There's nothing to go on right now), but I figured it was worth mentioning to...

So there seems to be some teeth gnashing and wailing about $1.5b being poured in to UFB but an uptake rate of only 2%.
Well if my experience is anything to go with, no wonder.

Does anyone know where you make these?
it'll be way better than dialup.
how much do these HD channels use anyhow?
must be atleast 9mbit for a 1080i stream, thats a few TB each month. (24/7)
a 100GB plan with adsl2 speeds (for everything but gaming) is more than possible.

If you have an idle 20 mins or so "The Last Bookshop" is a charming short film that is worth a watch. The film imagines a future in which bookshops have all but disappeared, a scenario not to hard to imagine. The film tells the tale of a boy who stumbles upon the last remaining bookshop and falls...

And I still...

Mid May I purchased my first SLR since I chucked photography and sold all my gear around 1990 (35mm SLR, 6x6 and 6x7) I have been slowly getting interested in photography again over the last couple of years so decided the time was right to get back into it. Not for part time work like I used to do,...
I went up there to detail some plans re: some network cabling. Saw this black plastic/rubber round container that used to contain water approx just above the laundry room. What's that?
....and why is it making a noise? :(
I was told that there was a "crashing sound" from the meter box that repeated a few times and then stopped, followed by a noticeable humming.
I determined the hum was probably from the black box in the middle as I can feel it vibrating if I put my finger...

So, what's new? I see there's a new forum starting up and the hammer is hanging over the PC World mag/forum. My life has changed alot in the last 12 months - new job, moved out, got a car, etc etc and PF1 has dropped off my list of frequent websites.
Would someone care to...
A couple of years ago I had some wood steps build at my house's front door. About three mornings ago I went out to get the Southland Times in my slippers. I slipped on the wooden steps and landed hard on my back. I suffered bad bruising on the side of my back near the waist. I must have pinched a...
Do I feel the jealousy?
We got our VHF installed in 2000 by the pro's which they provided RG6 cable and a 2 way splitter. I got a UHF aerial from one of the wholesale electrical places, I can return without any issues. I only got 55% Signal and 10% Quality with a laptop's USB TV stick.
It was a 15 Element aerial. ...

I'm moving to a new place here in Napier and need a new ISP - don't really need a landline. Any recommendations? Currently with Telecom but wondered if I could get something cheaper for my broadband. 30 gigs per month will be more than adequate.
My daughter is studying again, and we can't find a Win8 driver for our very old Canon printer at home. I want to get a home printer, preferably wireless, and cheap ink (I know this combo is impossible but one can dream can't one?). I would presume most models these day come out with Win8 drivers?...
Anyone know what this tool is or used for? Had it for about 20 years. Searched onilne, Images, etc, but nothing. It does not seem to match any of my punches, drifts, or cutting disc mandrels.
