    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    Voodoo blue mine is. Drives great, sounds great. My .2 WP though is better in every way except sound. And colour... The STs are great!

    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    Ha - I saw the shoutout from a buyer, presume on your behalf.....almost sold my .1 RS last week but I just can't do it. They're great cars. Wouldn't worry too much about the MR mods, unless you crack a carbon disc....something like £4k for the pair or £3500 for one :D

    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    On road trips my friends in Caymans (various types) definitely do seem to have more fun in the very twisty / narrow bits, but as soon as the road ever opens up they become more like annoying moving road blocks. I don't really use my 3RSs for normal road driving, not boring as such, just not the...

    Should you shower before swimming in a public pool?

    The main reason to shower before getting into the pool is to reduce the pool's chlorine demand, so it's more a kindness to the operator rather than other swimmers. After all the chlorine in the pool will take care of things once you're in it, and the sweat from everyone in the pool is probably...

    Major Websites down due to cloud issue

    Was surprised to see this the other day. But as a Fastly shareholder I'm pretty happy for the publicity, it's a great little company! And not so little it seems...gov.uk is pointed directly to them! Would be nice if the share price recovered after the drop due to Tiktok drama.... :) AWS and...

    Car insurance sees biggest price drop in six years

    Haha thanks I guess I should have added some context, the policy covers a few cars and extra drivers, and is 0% so the same monthly or annually :) I know I should ring and haggle but I don’t have many other options since there’s no chance I’m installing one of those black boxes in my RS6 for...

    Car insurance sees biggest price drop in six years

    Just got my insurance through, it's gone up by £50 a month. Not bad considering I had a £40k pothole claim that's just completed....I was prepared to be fully bent over!!

    Petty? Yes. Illegal? Not sure...messing with a morally corrupt car park

    Last time I got a 'fine' from a private car park I ignored it. I got lots of letters which got progressively nastier and from progressively more scumbag-sounding entities, but in the end they stopped. I have had a fine from a council car park though, similar to someone above, I had a permit and...

    Porsche Owners Thread - If you own one or just like or hate them! :)

    Supply vs demand makes it a lottery, when I got "the call" for my 3RS and had to immediately give them a 10k deposit I ran very far from my wife while I grabbed my credit card.... Of course some may say the lottery is fixed to customers who will 'give' the car back to the dealer for them to...

    So much want for that. Meanwhile I've got my 992 back, it was away for a few months after I hit the mother of all potholes....

    Attitudes to hosting and costs

    Honestly I'm surprised anything still runs on 2 cores and 1Gb RAM, let alone cPanel with Woocommerce, so that will be the source of the issue, even with Redis etc you have a losing battle there. The other issue is that you have 12% CPU steal which means the hypervisor is unable to give your VM...

    Attitudes to hosting and costs

    WP Rocket should definitely help, if it's still slow then either the hardware is slow or the site is handling a lot of traffic. Bruce force requests can be a pain if you don't have something like Imunify360 installed. If things have misbehaved since any kind of server migration that could also...

    Attitudes to hosting and costs

    Do you have any metrics from Tsohost? ie do you know if the system load average is high, it's using all its CPU/RAM, etc? I would be tempted to place it on a server with Litespeed and the LScache Wordpress plugin, it works brilliantly with Woocommerce and is more or less click and forget...

    Is Wordpress Dead? Alternatives?

    Advising you to move to their own system then advising that you can't embed images into posts is laughable. Core WordPress is very secure and whilst it may not be ideal for every use case, and there are a lot of vulnerable plugins out there, that really only reflects the sheer size of the...

    *** Official SONOS Thread ***

    I guess you were off the internet that day. It was a good day! Well that's entirely different, HD/4K picture quality is quantifiably different. You can literally see it. Try playing a VHS on a 65" TV. And a Ferrari is better than a Skoda. It's faster, the interior is nicer, etc. Depending on...

    *** Official SONOS Thread ***

    Haven't we worked out that hi res audio is all marketing junk? I'm sure that was the case a few years back. Sonos already supports lossless CD quality. But I think they are starting to add 'hi res' with the S2 app, starting with the new soundbar thing. My Sonos sounds pretty good, not as good...
