    Take Away curries, why do we never learn?

    Its up to the individual. Personally I don't trust take away places plus the food is mostly unhealthy. Your better off buying some cheap ingredients and chucking a quick meal together.

    Bad RAM from CeX

    So last week I bought some bits from CeX 3 of those items were sticks of RAM. I didn't try them out right away, the first stick that was labeled as DDR2 2GB was actually a 4GB DDR3 RAM stick. I noticed it said 4GB on it and I thought I had got a bargain 4GB DDR2 stick but nope it was DDR3. Its...

    What is your oldest working USB flash drive?

    I only see one Trust icon to click on. I'll try find out how to do it in the mean time. Putney is good for me I might be free tomorrow but definitely free Friday.

    What is your oldest working USB flash drive?

    Tried it but it says I'm not authorized to join the Members Market. I see your in London? I'm also in London. I could collect that way you save on postage. I have free travel so it don't cost me anything.

    What is your oldest working USB flash drive?

    Sorry if it seemed that way. I wasn't cold soldering you. You asked me to send you a trust, when I click on it, it asks for a user name and password. I apologize for not getting back to you on that. :)

    Take Away curries, why do we never learn?

    I guess it all depends where you order from. I rarely have take aways... you don't know whats gone into your food or what conditions your food has been prepared in. Some of the places are unhygienic.

    Plane Spotters / Flight Radar Thread

    I've heard digital noise on the AM Air Band. When I've been listening I've heard digital signals and analog signals on the same frequency. Where I am I can also pick up Air Band transmissions on UHF FM around 455MHz I can't remember all the frequencies as its been a while since I've played...

    That is true but I think there are some older cameras out there that have a limit on what capacity card it can take. A 512MB can still sell for the price of a 32GB or for example a 4GB CF card can make the same money or sometimes more than a 32GB CF card depending on what speed it is.

    Plane Spotters / Flight Radar Thread

    Its fun to listen to them too. Its the only thing that you can listen to now as everything has moved to digital encrypted comms. Some of Air Band has already gone digital.

    What is your oldest working USB flash drive?

    I remember when those capacities were considered huge. People were still using floppy disks around that time.

    I went to CEX to buy an 8GB CF card they had in stock in a particular store but it had somehow vanished so I was offered a 32GB Sandisk Extreme CF card for the same price at 6 pounds. What a result. The average price of these are selling for 20 pounds on ebay. The prices on these CF cards are...

    Drinking alone, Is it ever a good idea?

    It will get easier as time goes by. It may take about 3 or more years although you will never forget but life gets more bearable. I'd suggest seeing your GP if you are depressed, they might be able to prescribe you with some fluoxetine or something to help with things. Go on long walks keep...

    What is your oldest working USB flash drive?

    My oldest is a 128MB I bought from Argos years ago and it still works. I also upgraded to a 512MB flash drive not long after and that one still works.

    Is the Q6600 any good?

    I'm using Performance Test 9.0 Evaluation. It never properly completes and I don't get the final results I just see some of them before it crashes. I tried another benchmark software which did the same. It seems to struggle when it hits the 3D part of the test.

    What retro things have you done today?

    I think there will be a quite a few people sniping this and that's if the bid stays low nearer to the auction end. I would be tempted myself but I have enough old PC cases as it is.

    Is the Q6600 any good?

    The overall performance is still pretty terrible even though Windows started up faster after the BIOS reset. Bench marks were off the scale lower than low 3 FPS. It could be better. I wasn't able to complete the bench mark. CPU temp reached 71'C which is about normal for a quad core. I also got...

    Is the Q6600 any good?

    Socket 775 stuff are brilliant. They are one of my favorite boards. They can have a wide range of use from a retro Windows 98 build to a fairly "in my opinion" modern system. They take a wide variety of processors. Its hard to imagine that processors like the Q6600 Q8300 and Q9550 were released...

    Is the Q6600 any good?

    I've reset the BIOS, after doing so I noticed an increase in speed. Windows started up much faster and the computer is working better now and I've downloaded CPUZ and CPU temperature monitor. Hard drive is mostly always at 100% but I'll be getting an SSD for this. I only have 64GB SSD's left all...
