  1. Re: Help with access to late husband's computer

    I suspect it's the browser passwords she'll need, for the bills, banking, email, insurance, blah blah blah.

    Not that I have the slightest clue how to recover those.
  2. Re: As Usual I've Been Scanning the Net For Latest on Omicron Variant

    I'm happy to call BS on that claim.

    Re: Tesla Model 3 on fire after accident

    Yep, NMC or NCA lithium batteries burn fast and furious, and go off like fireworks - that's why buyers should park their egos and buy the lowly SR variants (which are perfectly suitable), which have...

    Re: Reports are coming out..

    The version of it I heard on the TV was him talking to her questioning whether he should be using long deep strokes or shallow ones.
    There is indeed some science to this, related to the X (female)...

    Re: WiFi from the mailbox - continued

    Ahh, well your plans for optical makes sense then. I wonder if an old mouse could be gutted for some of the parts... switch, LED light source and censor.

    I've had birds try to nest in my...

    Re: WiFi from the mailbox - continued

    What about putting a flap on the opening of the letterbox, and arming the flap?

    Flap closed, switch closed, system is off / standby (using no current), flap pushed open just a few mm and the...
  7. Re: They should not be allowed to say f*ck on television news

    It's OK to say it the way they have done. It's just not OK to grin or giggle when you say it.:xmouth:
  8. Re: Getting a trail (join the dots) marked out on Google Maps

    I use the "Measure Distance' tool for something similar. Each click adds a dot, and at the same time gives you an idea of how far you'll travel.

    Re: Electric Cars, Saving the climate

    Graphite is the form of carbon they're after. It needs a lot of processing to get the grain size and purity they need... it's a long step from plain old coal, and there's dozens of parallel battery...
  10. Re: Did you know there is a salt works in New Zealand?

    It's called Sea Salt if you're stupid enough to pay extra for that particular label. Popular with trendy urbanites, dredlocked hippies, crystal purchasers, and pseudo-science counter culture...

    Re: Dell Optiplex 9010

    I'd remove the RAM, and the CMOS battery, and leave it sitting unpowered for 30 mins, then try again.

    Images online show versions with the old PS2 plugs. It used to be that machines would get...

    Even worse, is if half the ambos are parked up awaiting someone to 'deep clean' them before they go out on another call, simply because the previous passenger may have been suspected of covid.

    Re: Landline phone battery life

    The Panasonic cordless handset that Vodafone gave me runs on 2 AAA batteries, and will start buzzing, then cut out after about 30 minutes, even when used within a metre of the base unit.

    It's a...
  16. Re: Ethernet extender using power socket outlet

    I've been using the TP-Link AV600 for a couple of years now, with no complaints whatsoever.

    Re: Tesla battery fire

    With the NMC and NCA battery chemistries the battery can combust, especially so if overcharged. Heat and overcharging of these types will cause battery degradation, and if you want to actually look...
  18. Re: The 60-Year-Old Scientific Screwup That Helped Covid Kill

    Something I find a little disturbing is the finding that vaccinated people can still catch and spread covid.

    This is worrying from 2 perspectives - those vaccinated will behave differently, in...

    I use, and like Malwarebytes. There's various Youtube videos of guys testing it against hundreds of malwares, and it does a good job.

    As for Ghostery, I used to use it, but then Malwarebytes...

    Re: SNOW, TRAFFIC JAMS AND ELECTRIC CARS:

    Note what I said only applies to an EV with a serious range (300+km).

    The stupid toy EVs with a 50km range are exactly the problem you described - no spare capacity for a change of circumstances,...

    Re: So that's what Vodafone is thinking..

    Yeah, I got a 'Customer Satisfaction' survey from my bank, which in fact was a thinly veiled attempt to determine whether I intended to roll over my term deposits or withdraw them.

    Re: SNOW, TRAFFIC JAMS AND ELECTRIC CARS:

    The reality is quite the opposite of what you've pictured.

    My 'experience' comes from absorbing everything Tesla related (I don't yet have one), so might not be true for all EVs.
