    Re: Causes of Global warming/climate change

    I think it's well known that population growth is the source of a lot of problems and a big factor in our effect on the climate, but it's also one problem nobody is willing to tackle. One sure way to...
  2. Re: Windows 11 Autoplay music list from internal HDD

    I think this just achieves the same thing as the method wainui mentioned and I dunno if it's available in windows 11 but.

    Right click a folder, choose properties, customise, tick the also apply to...
  3. Re: Are you a fan of the 50s, 60s, and/or the 70s?

    Symphonic yes, not so much the others. Maybe in small doses. An occasional cradle of filth song maybe. More mainstream and power metal myself. How about Mongolian throat singing covers of Metallica...
  4. Re: Are you a fan of the 50s, 60s, and/or the 70s?

    On the one hand none of that is my kind of music, on the other hand I know a lot of it really well surprisingly to myself. As kids we had a portable record player and Mums old singles were the only...
  5. Re: Found On Reddit: Windows 11 resets your default browser to Edge

    It's getting there slowly, there's a lot more support than there used to be but still a large number of new titles have no support at all or require a lot of bodging. It has made huge improvements...
  6. Re: Found On Reddit: Windows 11 resets your default browser to Edge

    At least now that edge is basically the same as chrome it's usable, I have no intention of upgrading to 11 until it's been around long enough for this sort of thing to be sorted. Or maybe linux will...

    Re: Goon Show cassette tapes

    I also used cool edit for a time, and the cut down version of it that was included with some CD burning software as well. These days I occasionally use dBpoweramp but my licence and version are...

    Re: Windows 10 to Linux Operating System

    The requirements you mention are for making the disk to use for installation, linux will let you install to any bootable media including other flash drives, micro SD, hard drives, SSD's etc. Stick...

    Re: PC Recording via Mic input

    If you really wanted to do that you could safely use a phone or tablet or laptop to do the playback and connect it to the line in. A rather crude and potentially poor quality method but it should...

    Re: Goon Show cassette tapes

    I recorded my last few cassettes on the pc before I ditched my tape player, came out surprisingly well as tape hiss is a very consistent noise and easily removed.
  11. Re: New laptop to replace Toshiba L55-c5392 Bought 05.08.16

    Core and thread counts have increased, and they are inconsistent across CPU names - i5 might have 4 or 6 cores, and may or may not have twice as many threads for example.

    If you just want the same...
  12. Re: How often do you sign another contract with ISPs, power companies etc?

    I'm personally very reluctant to change providers so I hardly ever do. I check my mobile and broadband plans every year or so to check if there are better ones though, spark don't make a habit of...

    Re: Win 11 upgrade

    In the BIOS you need things like secure boot and UEFI boot enabled, the MBR/GPT thing is done when the drive is first formatted generally by the OS installer for most people. It can be changed later...

    Re: Win 11 upgrade

    Stick with windows 10 until you eventually need to replace the PC, easiest solution. By the time windows 10 reaches end of life the 2200G will be a 7 year old CPU (from initial release date not from...
  16. Re: Annoying things with Chrome & Chromium browsers.

    Do you close the browser before shutting down? mine only asks to restore the previous session if it crashes or sometimes if I leave it open and shut down the PC.

    Re: Curved monitors & gaming

    I went from a 27" 16:9 to a 34" ultra wide a couple years ago, was not sure if it was a good Idea but haven't regretted it at all.
    A surprising amount of TV shows and movies also fit this aspect...

    Re: Live recovery USB options

    you could just use one of the linux distros, linux mint is close enough to windows that most people can manage to do the basics with it. The drive names will be different but you should be able to...

    I have an under sink filter from purewater products just because when I moved to the other side of town the water tasted a little odd. I am not overly concerned about what's in the water but I didn't...

    Backup anything you want to keep before doing that, seems like it'll reset everything and you might lose your data and programs.

    Re: Should the sale of Lotto be postponed?

    I don't think there's any reason to postpone it, anyone who wants to gamble and can't or won't go online will just have to wait until the end of lockdown. In a way they are being forced to save some...

  25. Re: Classic Bentlys, Rolls Royce, adapted to electric

    Electric motors don't need to be all that large physically to have a lot of power and torque, it's the batteries that need to be big.
