    China was recycling some of it until recently when they realised it wasn't economical and were actually losing money on it overall.
  4. Re: What have you owned for 20yrs and still using?

    Older stuff is worth repairing too. Nothing new is built to last. We're all going to drown in a sea of rubbish.

    Some older PCIE 1 motherboards had problems with PCIE 2 cards. I'm not aware of any major issues beyond that.

    Electric cars are great but they just move the pollution from the exhaust pipe to the power stations and lithium mines.

    Re: glueing plastic

    Some plastics need primer, some don't. You can sometimes identify the plastic from moulding marks. E.g. PP = polypropylene, PS = polystyrene etc once you know exactly what it is can you be sure you...

    Re: Solitaire - stacked decks!

    It certainly does look more featured but I'm not sure I can be bothered paying for that when Aisleriot is already quite enjoyable and costs nothing.

    Re: Old Phone (Hyundai TX115c) Problems

    You may find parts, or other faulty phones for parts, on TradeMe, eBay etc, but likely at insane prices, and you may wait a long time.

    Re: Solitaire - stacked decks!

    That is interesting. But I had not noticed it. I don't play the Windows version very often. I usually play Aisleriot in Linux, which has over 40 different games, including Solitaire and Freecell.

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

    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.

    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.
