    Re: HDD drop outs

    It won't be a problem at the Suez - once the water level rises the canal will get miles and miles wider than it is currently ;)

    Re: Electric car gutted by fire

    Yeah, I've seen that claim.
    I'm still a little hessitant to take it as a solid statistic, given the bulk of Teslas fleet are only a few years old, whereas most of the petrol cars going up in flames...
  5. Re: What have you done with your old film prints and negatives?

    I don't feel any passion towards family photos.
    I have no kids to pass any history onto. Old photos from my parents hold pics of people I either never knew, or were so rarely met that I don't give a...
  6. Re: How Long Will EV charging Remain At A Low Price?

    Actually, I've seen it stated that the only good way to extinguish a lithium battery fire is water.... lots and lots of water to a) remove the heat, and b) flood out the air feeding the fire.

    Any decent EV has strong thermal management of the battery pack, plus a dedicated Battery Management System, which manages temperature, charge rate, and the overall levels of charge/discharge allowed...
  8. Re: How Long Will EV charging Remain At A Low Price?

    Actually, many EVs still have a drivetrain comprising a single speed gearbox, differential and half shafts, so likely also some universal joints in there too.

  9. Re: How Long Will EV charging Remain At A Low Price?

    Well, in the USA where much of their electricity is from coal or oil it would be expected that prices will have to trend upwards.

    Re: how to print white on coloured paper

    Yeah, printer ink works differently than combining coloured lights, where mixing red, green and blue give you white light (additive mixing). Ink and paint work on subtractive mixing, where red ink...

    My anxiety issues gave me the shakes. I was given a very, very short course of Clonazepam, which was wonderful stuff. It seems it has potential for abuse (recreational), as it was like having a...

    If that trip to the workshop involved walking over any lawn, then you need to scour that ground ASAP, coz mowers are excellent at finding lost specs... finding and destroying that is.

    Re: Haka in NZ

    A haka at rugby will be a yawn when viewed from the spectator area. The TV will give you far better coverage.

    Re: Vaccine for Covid not the Complete Solution

    Agreed. I'd rather let others be the guinnea pigs before subjecting myself to it. This is however tempered by the fact that I can now largely self isolate fairly well.

    It is a bit of a mixed bag, whichever way the vote goes.
    I'm erring on the side of decriminalising it. Making it illegal certainly hasn't achieved anything in preventing it's widespread use.
