    Re: Climate change?

    Nope, as I said distance isn't a factor, if you worked out the difference as a % it's tiny.

    Better explanation here...

    Re: Climate change?

    Temperature and seasons have nothing to do with how close to the sun we are, to make a noticeable difference we would have to move a long way. The amount we move in our orbit has nothing to do with...
  3. Re: Electric aircraft in the near future? I don't think so.

    Electric planes will happen, and we can only guess at the eventual power source be it fuel cells, diamond batteries, or something we haven't imagined yet.

    Still, your first suggestion very much...
  4. Re: Electric aircraft in the near future? I don't think so.

    The batteries you linked might be able to power an aircraft for a very long time, but they won't be getting their charge from any aircraft mounted generators they already contain it in the form of...
  5. Re: Electric aircraft in the near future? I don't think so.

    I explained why the self charging can't power the vehicle. You can't do forward motion = power generation = power for the motor = forward motion. That's perpetual motion and it's impossible....
  6. Re: Electric aircraft in the near future? I don't think so.

    Sorry Wainui, just give up on this one. The space station has no friction and needs no power to stay in orbit. Planes have to overcome air friction and maintain lift which takes power. The power...

    Re: Toyota shares hydrogen love

    It's hard to imagine hydrogen cars getting established here unless someone comes up with a much better way to produce hydrogen. Current methods use much more energy than charging a battery does....

    I disagree, not dim and not lame. Just expensive and uses a bit of wifi bandwidth

    Re: HP Pavilion G7, Windows 10

    Don't windows 8 drivers normally work for windows 10? not sure but I thought they did.

    Windows 10 can run fairly well on older/slower hardware so it should be ok in theory. I have a dual core low...
  11. Re: Evs and "saving our environment" in Herald

    It's interesting but it doesn't really offer any solutions "Fewer cars. Less driving. Better communities and cities" Sure but how do we achieve that.
    Whatever the solution is continuing with fossil...
  12. Re: Clone my Windows Operating System, Programs, etc

    Having a clone is a good backup but can cause issues if you leave them both connected and enabled due to them both being bootable and identifying the same. At least that used to be the case, haven't...

    Re: What AV programme do you recommend?

    Linux may get much less Viruses than windows but they do still exist so not using an antivirus is still a risk.

    I tend to try Linux again every couple of years, waiting for the day when it will...
  14. Re: Using Powerline network device and router to extend wireless range

    I do exactly that with an old TPlink ADSL router to extend my wifi into the garage. Works pretty well although I did have a few goes at setting it up before I got it right. It can take a bit of...

    Re: Phone remote ringer

    Dial tone comes from the telephone exchange or a phone system not the phone, it's sent down the line the same as any other audio. You should be able to hear the tones when you dial though.

  16. Re: Can I listen to the TV soundtrack on my PC?

    You absolutely sure there's no audio output? maybe an HDMI input with the ARC function or an optical Toslink connector?

    Most cheap soundbars have one or both of those options and would sound a...

    Re: Home outdoor Security Camera

    Lame huh? My solar powered wireless ring security lights have not failed in the 2 years I've had them, even mid winter they still charge the battery to 100% by mid morning most days.

    Honestly for most people chipset doesn't really matter, the X570 is aimed at gamers and overclockers but the B550 is good enough for most people. There is a difference in the PCIE spec that might...

    Re: Biuilding a new PC

    The 5600 looks like a good all round CPU if you want to save a few $, really depends if you will use anything that will benefit from the 2 extra cores in the 5700 very often.

    Re: Phone remote ringer

    Ring current on old landlines is 90V (ish) AC. 93V AC sounds about perfect and should make the bell ring. It should not be constant though, 50V DC constant to power the phone, 90V AC pulsed to make...
