Re: External SSD drive

That would be a good plan, but if the machine doesn't have USB 3 sockets then you wouldn't gain anything in the way of speed.

Recent spinning hard drives are also quite quick for keeping data on....

Amazing shots. I just wish I had the patience!

I have just seen these amazing shots of a pair of red squirrels from Formby in Merseyside. I just wish I had the patience!

Re: Copying DVD's to iMac

There are various apps available to 'mount' the contents of CD's and DVD's as logical drives on any internal hard drive. I think Handbrake is one of them. Once mounted the volume behaves just like a...

Re: Boris Gate

So will Boris get his way tomorrow? I suspect not.

Both sides are so deeply entrenched that they wouldn't accept a compromise even of it was god plated - not that we have much gold left.

No problems here. I wonder if it is anything to do with the Three outage?

Re: Climate Change

One would hope so, although having any sense of humour nowadays seems to be frowned upon by the liberal elite. Or maybe they all have some form of Aspergers?

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

Unfortunately modern Liberals cannot accept that others may hold different views to their own.

To quote a Prime Minister from better times:

Unfortunately they have the politically correct, dewy eyed liberals and other assorted do-gooders on their side claiming that they are an oppressed minority. Maybe if they obeyed the law, paid taxes...

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

If you have no tax, insurance MOT or licence to worry about then you can ignore the cameras. Its not as if there are any traffic police around to pull you over. :rolleyes:

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

I haven't' seen a proper Traffic Cop for a while. Most of them were replaced by cameras and 'Highways Officers' who are not police.

It might have something to do with the appalling behaviour on...

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

Not many. Most but not all were decommissioned by David Cameron's government shortly after coming to power. They were very expensive to run apparently (the camera bit cost £20,000 + and could only...

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

Ah yes, they are good. I was just wondering how it was as a monitor at 35 - 40% brightness? I always have mine at 70 - 80%.

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

Do bear in mind that any colour calibration will almost certainly reduce screen brightness. This should not a problem for newer, brighter monitors, but if you have maximum brightness set than colour...

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

This isn't new but is well worth flagging up.

One of the most common is 'de-badging' a car because it is seen as an invitation to others to race.

I doubt that most insurers would be bothered...

Re: Age-Related Difficulties

Yes; grapefruit contains an enzyme which prevents digestion of the medicine, thereby increasing the quantity in the gut. Its a bit like taking an overdose.

Re: What broadband speed do you need?

Yes indeed; but FTTP requires a powered modem box in the premises, without which the phone won't work. It is all a bit like VOIP really, which most of us now use without even knowing it.

Re: What broadband speed do you need?

That small green box is not the Exchange, but the Cabinet, as in 'Fibre to the Cabinet'. The Exchange will be a bigger building, possibly some distance away.

The idea is that high speed fibre...

Re: Plague on the planet

The Class 55 Deltics were built for high speed passenger service on the East Coast Main Line. Only 23 were built so I don't think they strayed any further afield for purely operational reasons.
