  1. Re: Specsavers: "We could all do with a spare pair."

    If that trip to the workshop involved walking over any lawn, then you need to scour that ground ASAP, coz mowers are excellent at finding lost specs... finding and destroying that is.

    Re: Google Earth

    Even the simpler Google Maps can handle coordinates, and you don't need the degrees symbol, it seems to figure it out if you just put a space between the degrees, minutes and seconds. Just type it...

    Re: Haka in NZ

    A haka at rugby will be a yawn when viewed from the spectator area. The TV will give you far better coverage.
    Agree that Rotorua would likely be your best option, and best yet if done indoors, on a...
  4. Re: Vaccine for Covid not the Complete Solution

    Agreed. I'd rather let others be the guinnea pigs before subjecting myself to it. This is however tempered by the fact that I can now largely self isolate fairly well.
    If I was still working (which...

    Re: OK, your thoughts on this

    Allegedly there's a green light for medical use regardless of which way the referendum goes. It's just got some inertia as the docs need to get upskilled and an attitude shift with respect to...

  7. Re: Can a CAT6 wired outlet from a modem at the end or the house, be used to create W

    You can use that outlet to connect it to a Wifi transmitter / extender, but if you're wondering whether a cable out of the modem will act like a transmission aerial, then no, it won't, as the signal...

    Re: OK, your thoughts on this

    It is a bit of a mixed bag, whichever way the vote goes.
    I'm erring on the side of decriminalising it. Making it illegal certainly hasn't achieved anything in preventing it's widespread use.

    Re: VHS video to PC capture

    If you have a PVR to record your digital TV... take a look at the back for analogue connectors. It'll do a more reliable, trouble free capture, editting and conversion of VHS to digital than any PC...

    Re: Light bulbs - how much wattage do you use?

    Dugi! An intelligent take on lighting!
    I share your frustration re light fittings. There are so many designs that only serve to cut out the light that you are paying to pump into the room.

    My former workplace had toilet facilities meant to service a whole bunch of businesses. The drain on the floor must have been a wet type, and connected to the sewer pipes, because in the summer...

    Re: Want to know how to access the File menu

    I never touch Outlook, but maybe you could try the old, traditional shortcut keys that most apps use... Alt F O (Alt, File, Open) and see if any dialog pops up.

    Another thought... may drag and...

    Re: Charging expats for quarantine

    Re: Need a good programme to stop pop up ads

    Yeah, the latest Firefox is pretty good at blocking many ads and trackers. Malwarebytes has additional ad/tracker blocking which covers the rest quite nicely.

    Yeah, heat, or a fan, or a bad capacitor.
    When a fan goes noisy it also slows down due to going out of balance. Often just gently touching the centre of the spinning fan will temporarily correct the...

    This issue seems vaguely familiar to an issue I've had in the past, but I can't recall the exact hardware, or the solution.

    Looks like a phone charger to me, but the scale against your thumb makes it look a bit too wide for a phone jack.

    Re: Picture format

    Check the file size. If it's 30KB or less it's likely just junk HTML, or maybe a logo that was attached to an email, in which case it's likely not what you want, and not worth your effort.
