    Re: Special people

    That's bizarre, surely not accepting cash is technically illegal?

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-20/will-coronavirus-kill-off-cash-in-australia/12065860

    Huh. Apparently not.

    Re: Special people

    Not explicitly, but from what I gathered from the original story, they are for some people. Why should something that helps someone be taken away from them just because you don't like it?

    Re: black mould on exposed aggregate concrete

    You may also consider trying muriatic acid to clean your concrete, which can also roughen it, so it should be even less slippery.

    I haven't tried it for concrete myself, I use the acid to make...

    Re: HDMI Cables

    An annoyingly contradictory article, tells me that v1.x cables will ruin my experience, then later says they're fine if you're only using 1080p or lower (which I am).

    Re: how to print white on coloured paper

    Print on white paper, glue the paper over the yellow card?

    Card is not that expensive (assuming you only want one or two). Somewhere like Geoffs Emporium sell various card stocks for 20c a sheet.

    Re: Chrome OS

    Why would you want to use Chrome OS over a normal version of Linux? You lose features that make Linux great, and have Google's added tracking and who-knows-what-else attached. It makes no sense to...
  8. Re: Works 2000 reinstall on iMac, have product key still

    Works 2000 is 20 years old and Catalina was released only a year ago.

    While backwards compatibility is pretty good with Apple and Microsoft in general, trying to install a 20 year old program on a...

    Re: Cat6 vs Cat5e cables

    In a home environment I would say it is unlikely. For long cable runs reaching the length limit, Cat6 would be advisable, however. But for a few metres from your router to your desktop PC, there's no...
  10. Re: Macrium Reflect 7 Backup in 2 parts, both useless.

    Yes you could use a live CD. But a 12-year old Linux may not even run on a modern computer without some driver etc issues and you likely can't install anything because the online repos will be long...

    Re: Unwanted stuff

    Are you saying that if you gift someone something, they must keep it and use it even if they hate it, just to make you feel good? That's just silly and doesn't get anyone anywhere. It's better to be...
  12. Re: Macrium Reflect 7 Backup in 2 parts, both useless.

    Use dd command in Linux to create a 1:1 image of the whole drive. Partition table won't get messed up then. Write to new drive (same or bigger capacity). Expand partition if needed.

    Re: 3rd party laser toner and drums?

    If it's a few years old and you've used it a lot, it might just be getting low? The toner level is not necessarily accurate.

    Re: USB device over current detected

    It could well be a shorted ceramic capacitor on a USB port's power rail. (Ceramic ones like to fail shorted).
    Or a faulty overcurrent detection circuit, perhaps.

    Re: Printer Manufacturers are

    I mean in terms of page yields. If the average Joe complains, who cares, but if your large corporate customer feels ripped off, you might actually lose business, so you make more of an effort.

    You would get highly critical security updates that Microsoft deem exceptional (they went as far back as patching XP for a recent one) but that's about it.

    Re: Printer Manufacturers are

    The problem is in buying a consumer or home office grade printer.

    You need a true commercial grade one if you want even a modicum of decency.
