    Re: Breach of Rights

    Pathetic. Makes the case for carrying an audio recorder and keeping them accountable.

    Re: SNOW, TRAFFIC JAMS AND ELECTRIC CARS:

    It can happen spontaneously although perhaps not often. I recall an issue with Ford Cortinas that had a faulty fuel tank filler pipe that could leak and cause a fire. Also seen where modified cars...

    And a vehicle with a tank full of highly flammable petroleum has never caught fire or exploded and killed anyone - right?

    Re: MS Office - where did that come from?

    I don't believe in free stuff when it's offered by a multinational corporate entity.

    Re: Defraggler

    Technically, yes, but the presence of any bad sectors usually precedes more, or outright failure of the drive in short order.

    Re: MS Office - where did that come from?

    Also by using online office, I'm sure Microsoft will data-mine all your documents for targeted advertising and who-knows-what-else too!

    Why else is it free?

    Re: Defraggler

    Any failing drive can/will cause data loss, if you defrag it or not.

    One reason why it's recommended to run scandisk/chkdisk before defragmenting. Although it seems Windows nowadays lets you run...

    Re: Windows 11 leaked

    A lot of them don't, actually.
    It was only Ubuntu and its derivatives that started the Year.Month versioning scheme.

    For Debian, which Ubuntu is based on, the latest is version 10.

    I have no idea what you mean by "Linux 18" but it depends on the distro. Some aggressively deprecate support for older hardware while others don't.

    Re: Windows 11 leaked

    It's much better than it was though. A big problem is with titles such as PUBG, as the anti-cheat software is unable to function in wine. The game itself would probably run fine.

    Re: Spark plug madness - what's the answer?

    With the new spark plug it was very easy to start. Once going, it seemed fine and cut the grass well as I would expect.

    The only problem was dying twice at idle for no apparent reason.

    Sure, but this is a 3yr old machine with a BluRay drive... Surely nothing is SATA1 in that setup?

    Re: pc random power loss

    I find it surprising that reconnecting a loose cable caused a reset as SATA is supposed to be hot swappable.

    Re: Why do women wear a towel on their head?

    In my understanding, it soaks up water and helps dry the hair without damaging/tangling as you would if you briskly rubbed it with the towel.

    Why do you care so much about what it looks like?

    If it's the drive power cable, yes that could do it, if it was the data cable, very unlikely.

    It sounds like the old PSU was faulty. It may have had high noise/ripple and damaged something else.

    Thanks everyone for the replies and advice.
