    Looking for a RPI 2B and 3B to replace 2 that I fried in my stupidity. Not having much luck finding these older boards online and I'm not willing to pay the premium for RPI 4's that those that...

    Re: I'm a boobs man, myself

    Clearly the mods don't care anymore. Are there any left?

    P.S. not offended, just remember when we used to have a community posting positive and entertaining discussion, not the whingy trash there...

    Re: Question SoftMaker Free Office

    Off topic but why don't people use Google Docs if they aren't willing to shell out for MS? I use both frequently and have no major gripes.

    Re: What computer case do you use?

    Always depends on what hardware you're using but I'd go with the fractal. I've owned 3 fractal cases and have zero complaints about build quality. Corsair build quality is on par in my experience....
  5. Re: Don't expect the government to look after you when you retire

    At 31 I think I'm in for a lot less Gov assistance than that. Easy to plan for though when you accept that the Gov money is really only going to cater to the less fortunate and less motivated.

    Re: Insurance Whinge

    Getting parts out the US is about the same cost as most jap parts here but you do have to wait for them. The appeal of european cars here is that they depreciate so badly that if you buy a 5-10 year...
  9. Re: Windows File History Backup to VHD over LAN

    I did try creating a folder as well and sharing that but no luck. I may have missed a permission. I also hid the share from the network just to stop accidental deletion etc so maybe hiding it was the...
  10. Re: Windows File History Backup to VHD over LAN

    That worked great. I had to over provision the physical drive space to create the additional storage space but other than that I think it's a nice straight forward solution.

    That's not a bad idea actually! Thanks
  12. Windows File History Backup to VHD over LAN

    I'm trying to setup the windows file history tool on PC "A" to use a virtual hard disk on PC "B". I can get it to work fine if I use a folder on a physical hard drive "B" but not with a virtual one. ...

    Re: Where to get thermal pads locally

    I thought about thermal paste however I don't have that much confidence in the heatsink mounts which are just plastic clips. I think it needs the thickness of the thermal pad to hold it firmly in...

    I had one site with them for a while but they allocate such small amount of CPU on the cheaper plans that navigating the back end of bigger CMS's is painful. I've switched to cloudways in the states....

    Re: Leaking Hot Water Cylinder

    I'm to lazy to garden but maybe moonshine?



    I'm really not that worried about the scrap value of it. It's not going to make the process of removal any more enjoyable. On a side note that...
