    Re: glueing plastic

    Some plastics need primer, some don't. You can sometimes identify the plastic from moulding marks. E.g. PP = polypropylene, PS = polystyrene etc once you know exactly what it is can you be sure you...

    Re: Solitaire - stacked decks!

    It certainly does look more featured but I'm not sure I can be bothered paying for that when Aisleriot is already quite enjoyable and costs nothing.

    Also I see no Linux option, only Mac and...

    Re: Old Phone (Hyundai TX115c) Problems

    You may find parts, or other faulty phones for parts, on TradeMe, eBay etc, but likely at insane prices, and you may wait a long time.

    Re: Solitaire - stacked decks!

    That is interesting. But I had not noticed it. I don't play the Windows version very often. I usually play Aisleriot in Linux, which has over 40 different games, including Solitaire and Freecell.

    Re: Special people

    That's bizarre, surely not accepting cash is technically illegal?

    Huh. Apparently not.

    Not explicitly, but from what I gathered from the original story, they are for some people. Why should something that helps someone be taken away from them just because you don't like it?

    Re: black mould on exposed aggregate concrete

    You may also consider trying muriatic acid to clean your concrete, which can also roughen it, so it should be even less slippery.

    Re: HDMI Cables

    An annoyingly contradictory article, tells me that v1.x cables will ruin my experience, then later says they're fine if you're only using 1080p or lower (which I am).

    Re: how to print white on coloured paper

    Print on white paper, glue the paper over the yellow card?

    Card is not that expensive (assuming you only want one or two). Somewhere like Geoffs Emporium sell various card stocks for 20c a sheet.

    Re: Chrome OS

    Why would you want to use Chrome OS over a normal version of Linux? You lose features that make Linux great, and have Google's added tracking and who-knows-what-else attached. It makes no sense to...

    In a home environment I would say it is unlikely. For long cable runs reaching the length limit, Cat6 would be advisable, however. But for a few metres from your router to your desktop PC, there's no...
  18. Re: Macrium Reflect 7 Backup in 2 parts, both useless.

  20. Re: Macrium Reflect 7 Backup in 2 parts, both useless.

    Use dd command in Linux to create a 1:1 image of the whole drive. Partition table won't get messed up then. Write to new drive (same or bigger capacity). Expand partition if needed.

    If it's a few years old and you've used it a lot, it might just be getting low? The toner level is not necessarily accurate.

    Re: USB device over current detected

    It could well be a shorted ceramic capacitor on a USB port's power rail. (Ceramic ones like to fail shorted).
    Or a faulty overcurrent detection circuit, perhaps.
