    Re: TPM enquiry

    No, not worth the hassle, especially considering what I paid for the CPU. As I have grown older I have developed into one of those characters who hates throwing things away - it might be useful some...

    Re: Causes of Global warming/climate change

    Thanks, B.M., I think it's right to let the idiots have their say. It helps us judge the quality of the counter-arguments. I wonder what his views on Covid vaccination are.

    Re: Causes of Global warming/climate change

    Well, yes, but the problem is not so much the number of people but what those people (i.e. us) are doing.
