    Re: Have you heard the cicadas this summer?

    I can hear some out my window. They stay underground for a few years as nymphs, dunno if that explains anything.

  4. Re: I was here years ago... why is no one talking about

    No real reason to discuss it on this forum, it's a fairly niche topic and likely is discussed elsewhere by those engaged in it. I had a crack at litecoin mining back when it was booming and decided...

    Re: How do I download an mp3 of some songs?

    The problem with answering the question is the most common method is via torrent sites and is illegal, posting it on a public forum is a risk. The sites themselves are not illegal although that's...
  7. Re: Patently misleading advertising re binoculars/telescopes

    I've looked at a couple of those adds myself, but if they don't make the actual magnification obvious or easily found I just close them.

    Re: Radio keeps drifting off the station

    I think it's pretty much been covered already so I'll add my "just use something else" suggestion. Magic can be streamed on a PC or on a smartphone using the ROVA app. It uses some data but will...

    Re: Setting up Your Phone in Win 11

    Ok, none of that interests me so I'll continue ignoring it.

    1. I use a cable
    2. I just use the phone to send texts
    3. same as 2.

    I also set my tablet up to do 2. and 3. a while ago (think...

    Re: Keyboards

    When I bought my first (and current) mechanical keyboard I decided to not have drinks near it. So what happens?, I sit back a couple meters to open a bottle of coke, nowhere near my new keyboard, and...

    Re: Setting up Your Phone in Win 11

    Every major update windows tries to convince me to do this, tried it once and found no use for it. Do you find it useful ? Not having as go, genuinely curious what it does that people use.

    Re: USB 3 to Gigabit ethernet hub

    Yeah it should work if you have a USB 3 port but a PC without gigabit ethernet and with USB 3 would seem unusual to me. If you have USB 3 I would expect your ethernet port to be a gigabit one.

    Re: Magnetic car phone holder

    I had a similar one but I don't know what would happen when it gets removed as I sold it with the car. Worked well enough but I installed it so the base of the phone was resting on something as I...

    Re: Electric cars again

    Not green it's fair to say, but greener than petrol or diesel so a baby step in the right direction. And yeah, coal powered battery cars are still greener than petrol. Here's one source, there are a...

    Re: Carpet

  21. Re: Question on creating USB Linux boot system

    Flash drives make for slow OS drives and are not the most reliable when used this way. They are not designed for it. If it's just to have a play or for occasional use it's perfectly fine, but if you...

    Re: Tesla Model 3 on fire after accident

    I found the story a little amusing, the way the driver tells it makes it sound like the car had an accident all by itself.

    Instead of admitting he was driving too fast in wet conditions and hit a...
