    Re: Windows 10 --- Latest Tech Preview

    I can't say the same about Linux :)

    Re: Graphics card?

    It's worth noting that HDMI to DVI adapters are very cheap as they use the same signalling, so DVI on the PC might not be a requirement :)

    Re: M.2 Socket 3

    22602280 is actually two things,...

    Re: How to retrieve Win7 Product key from PC

    4GB is enough. It won't be the Superman of PCs, but it'll run fine.

    Re: Iíve nicknamed my laptop Laggard :-(

    Only four years old and it's that slow already? Could just be the OS bogged down, try a clean install of Windows first.

    Re: MS Win 10 Problems?

    Re: Window 10 2009 Out now

    I'm just going to point out here that I had to drive out to fix a Linux server the other day as an update stopped it from booting entirely.

    Never had that problem with Windows :)

    Re: Auckland back to level 3

    :+1:

    Either we lock down and screw over the economy, or don't lock down and screw over the economy, the health of the general public and the health system.

    Seems like an easy choice to me.
  15. Re: Are there any people out there using Cat6 or Cat7 at the moment?

    Every new cable I get now is at least Cat6 :)

    Once we build I plan to wire up the entire house with Cat6a, to future proof for 10 gigabit Ethernet once it becomes common.

    If the headphones have their own volume control it would work fine. It's just a cheap splitter in that case, even The Warehouse have them for $5....
