  1. 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).

    The stupid toy EVs with a 50km range are exactly the problem you described - no spare capacity for a change of circumstances,...

    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.

    They aren't...

    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.

    Teslas can run...

    Re: RIP: A Death has occurred in the family.

    My own memories of the 1440 were not so favourable.

  9. Re: Two of the four elements donít work properly on my stove

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

    Fact: If cylinders are too cool they can be a breeding ground for...
  10. Re: Two of the four elements donít work properly on my stove

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

    There are two very primary places to start your...

    Isn't it possible to add other columns to the Explorer view to include Genre, Playlength, Album, Artist? If so, you may be able to sort on those columns, and hopefully once the stick is transferred...

    I was so impressed with Doom, and so relieved to finally break free from the 2D scrolling games that I made a point to buy the full versions from their shareware stuff, even if I had obtained it by...

    Re: HDD drop outs

    Cable was my first pick, but maybe also power saving features are letting the drive spin down, and it's maybe a bit dicky about spinning back up in a reasonable time.

    Re: Electric car gutted by fire

    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...

  19. 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.

  21. 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.
