    Re: SNOW, TRAFFIC JAMS AND ELECTRIC CARS:

    I really don't get all the hate for EV's, how many of you have actually driven one? And it's not like anyone is forcing you to own one if you don't want to. The truth is that although they have...

    Re: Windows 11 leaked

    I've tried linux many times over the years, it's definitely pretty decent these days. But as a PC gamer it still lacks support for too many of the games I play to get me to use it regularly, and...

    Re: Smart Radio in Our Motorhome

    I Believe it's part of the RDS system and I've heard of it but none of my car stereos ever supported it. Not all nz stations use it either I think. I notice some cars now display the name of the...

    I have one of these https://www.bunnings.co.nz/ryobi-18v-one-4-0ah-edger-kit_p0135045 and it does a pretty decent job around my driveway and paths. If you do it regularly - say monthly or more - it's...

    Re: Landline no longer working

    He'd have hated them even more now, they are so old NEC stopped replacing parts a long time ago and they have to be locally repaired which is fairly expensive. A lot of capacitors have worn out and...

    As I said the exchanges have already started coming out, for a couple years now actually. They replace a splitter card in the broadband equipment that used to allow the phone line to be combined with...

    Re: pc random power loss

    Yeah I could never hope to give you every detail, the Blue ray drive is older than the PC and I have no Idea by how much. I re-used it from another PC. When I built the PC I had no intention of...

    Re: pc random power loss
