  1. Re: Getting a trail (join the dots) marked out on Google Maps

    I use the "Measure Distance' tool for something similar. Each click adds a dot, and at the same time gives you an idea of how far you'll travel.

    Re: Electric Cars, Saving the climate

    Graphite is the form of carbon they're after. It needs a lot of processing to get the grain size and purity they need... it's a long step from plain old coal, and there's dozens of parallel battery...

    It's called Sea Salt if you're stupid enough to pay extra for that particular label. Popular with trendy urbanites, dredlocked hippies, crystal purchasers, and pseudo-science counter culture...

    Re: Dell Optiplex 9010

    I'd remove the RAM, and the CMOS battery, and leave it sitting unpowered for 30 mins, then try again.

    Images online show versions with the old PS2 plugs. It used to be that machines would get...

    Even worse, is if half the ambos are parked up awaiting someone to 'deep clean' them before they go out on another call, simply because the previous passenger may have been suspected of covid.

    Re: Landline phone battery life

    The Panasonic cordless handset that Vodafone gave me runs on 2 AAA batteries, and will start buzzing, then cut out after about 30 minutes, even when used within a metre of the base unit.

    It's a...
  9. Re: Ethernet extender using power socket outlet

    I've been using the TP-Link AV600 for a couple of years now, with no complaints whatsoever.

    Re: Tesla battery fire

    With the NMC and NCA battery chemistries the battery can combust, especially so if overcharged. Heat and overcharging of these types will cause battery degradation, and if you want to actually look...
  11. Re: The 60-Year-Old Scientific Screwup That Helped Covid Kill

    Something I find a little disturbing is the finding that vaccinated people can still catch and spread covid.

    This is worrying from 2 perspectives - those vaccinated will behave differently, in...

    Re: Malwarebytes & Ghostery

    I use, and like Malwarebytes. There's various Youtube videos of guys testing it against hundreds of malwares, and it does a good job.

    As for Ghostery, I used to use it, but then Malwarebytes...

    Re: SNOW, TRAFFIC JAMS AND ELECTRIC CARS:

    Note what I said only applies to an EV with a serious range (300+km).

    Re: So that's what Vodafone is thinking..

    Yeah, I got a 'Customer Satisfaction' survey from my bank, which in fact was a thinly veiled attempt to determine whether I intended to roll over my term deposits or withdraw them.

    Re: SNOW, TRAFFIC JAMS AND ELECTRIC CARS:

    The reality is quite the opposite of what you've pictured.

    My 'experience' comes from absorbing everything Tesla related (I don't yet have one), so might not be true for all EVs.

    The irony to piroska's correct assertion about Legionella is the new set of rules about cylinder temp and output water temps.

    Barry, it's screamingly obvious your hot water system is leaking somewhere. Stop fretting about the thermostat or the element, or the electrics.
