    Re: Making deleted files irretrievable

    I have been trying to find references to this case without success; perhaps someone else will remember. Apologies if I have misremembered the details.

    Re: Extending Wifi

    Where do you live Krad? If you are in North Canterbury I could lend you 2 powerline adapters to try out.
  4. Re: Recommend a wireless access point or similar, wifi issues?

    Well, as I think I noted earlier in this thread, I had virtually the same set up as Dugi, even the same brands. Only difference was there was no switch in the set up. I used the router as an AP, and...

    Re: Charging expats for quarantine

    I support forcing the following category of so-called "NZ" citizens to pay an exorbitant fee for their compulsory quarantine, to be carried out in re-opened facilities on Matiu-Somes Island or Quail...
  7. Re: Well that didn't last long Nationals up the creek with no Leader

    Hah! If that was anywhere near true, Brownlee would be long gone. Instead the Tories have promoted him. And Collins of Dirty Politics infamy has smirked her way to the "leadership" of this sorry rump...

    Don't worry about it Ken. Nothing to do with the thread any way.

    Several commentators have included Ilam's failed woodwork teacher as one of the candidates! Bwahaha!

    Re: Windows10 version 2004 update

    Well that was interesting WT. The first reboot took 1min 30 secs to get to my desktop with no whirly circle where the mouse pointer should be (excuse the technical language here). I shut down after...

    Re: Windows10 version 2004 update

    Thanks WT. I have done what you suggested, and there were heaps of unnecessary items in start up and background apps. Will see what that does in the next restart. Thanks again.

    Re: Windows10 version 2004 update

    Thanks WT. I didn't know that about roll back/system restore. That did make it much, much worse. Classic Shell had been fine hitherto, and I have done all of the Microsoft updates offered.

    Re: Windows10 version 2004 update

    For what it is worth, my laptop now has it installed, but not by me... I found a prompt to restart to install a Windows update, and so I did a restart, the same as many times before. The result was a...
  16. Re: Recommend a wireless access point or similar, wifi issues?

    Quite coincidentally, I set up the same arrangement in our previous home (no 8 port switch, but everything else was the same; even the same brands!). I did this because the ONT box was downstairs,...

    Re: Spark Fibre Unlimited with UNPLAN

    I have the same Spark plan and the new modem (connection began late Jan 2020). I am very pleased with the plan because now I only pay for what I use, and because I no longer have to have a landline,...

    We have that one, or very similar, in our campervan. If you don't want the whistle you simply leave off the cap over the pouring spout.
