General Discussion Area / VPN again
« on: Yesterday at 23:24:17 »
I need an SSL VPN apparently.

My Satellite modem went faulty and when fixed will no longer have a UK IP address. I understand the reasons why..

However I will no longer be able to download UK TV , like BBC iplayer.

Provider says I need a SSL VPN  on my Linksys E1200 router.

Any recommendations please? Dont mind paying  but see below. Sorry for another VPN thread after the Nord zvPN thread last week.

I will also be looking at rural Unlimited SIM based internet soon now I have lost the UK I P address so will need a VPN on that too.when I ditch the satellite.

General Discussion Area / Computers and global warming

Could it be that cars and cows are not the whole problem.?

Everyone has a computer generating heat and powered by electricity.

Everyone is taking millions of photos all stored in something called the icloud, one drive or similar. Those servers must really be kicking out some heat.

Just a thought

General Discussion Area / USA F1

Strange race.

Ferrari looked competitive in quali. Then just faded away or in Vettels case lacked grip and then his suspension gave up maybe from running wide over the rumble strips. I wonder if there is any truth in the rumour Ferrari had oil bleeding into the engine to increase power?

Hamilton drove a great race. He could just have cruised round to fifth but instead tried to win. How good is it that a Brit is world champion.

General Discussion Area / Fentanyl

Sky news have an interesting news item about this potentially lethal drug that is popular in the USA.

50 times more potent than heroin.

Around 50,000 deaths. Pop star Prince included.

General Discussion Area / Britains EU Commisioner
« on: 02 November 2019, 23:49:56 »
We didnt need one when we were leaving by 31st October.

Now we haven't left we are still members and crucially will be paying the 250 million a week net ( hardly dare say it but 350 million a week as will the EU be giving Britain anything between Nov 1st and this unicorn date of leaving.? I suspect not)

So methinks Britain needs to appoint an EU commissioner to represent British interests and report back what they are up to.

I suggest Sir Tigger for the job. Bring an air of respectability plus represent the people.

General Car Chat / How is this for service?
« on: 31 October 2019, 14:09:42 »
My 4x4 ate its oil cooler a few weeks back. For a while before that the EML came on intermittently ending up being on all the time. I thought it might be the EGR valve.

Got the oil cooler fixed. Car going alright so took it to an excellent local auto electrician. He read the codes while I was there. He checked numerous electrical connections, fuses etc. Five stored codes. Leave it with me for a couple of days.

Went today today to collect it. No EML light staying on, car running fine. No charge. He cleared the codes with a Peugeot reader and as he hadn't "done any work" no charge.  If it comes back on, pop back and I will have another look.

Could be either garage made good a duff connection during their activities.

If it stays away, I shall take him a bottle of something.

German farmers take country to court over climate change ruining their farming.


What next V8 owners take government to court over spoiling their driving with high fuel prices?

As has been said before, we can expect  government by courts.

Good race.

There will be some strategist jobs vacant at some of the teams. Maybe it was the altitude. Oh and the pit stops.

General Discussion Area / 8th 9th May 2020
« on: 25 October 2019, 19:41:48 »
This is the next date to look forward to. Think 75.

Could be the date we leave the EU or the date we rejoin having never left.

Either way Priti Patel has sorted an extra hour on pub opening times ;D

General Discussion Area / Smart motorways to be reviewed
« on: 24 October 2019, 17:43:43 »
I remember us having a thread on Smart motorways some time ago .

Seems there has been too many deaths on the hard shoulder that doesn't exist.

Anyone else feel vulnerable driving on a motorway without a hard shoulder?

General Discussion Area / Poor toilet hygiene
« on: 23 October 2019, 12:06:22 »
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-50140871

A study concludes poor toilet hygiene is behind E coli outbreak.

No shit Sherlock! Mrs V and myself are appalled at the number of folk using toilets in public and not washing their hands after either a number 1 or a number2 . We avoid food outlets with toilets themselves that are not up to standard but you cannot help if the staff rent cleana

General Discussion Area / Numpty two routers question
« on: 19 October 2019, 19:49:15 »
I have a Linksys E1200 version1 router on my satellite modem.

Checked the software and it is running version 2 software since over a year ago. I have no recollection of installing it. Tried today to install vers 1.0 firmware with no success. Did factory reset and was surprised to see it still had ver 2 firmware. Reason for trying to change it is I am having internet problems and supplier says their service is working fine.

Anyway enough of background. If I buy another identical but later router could I easily use the older router on the end of a long ethernet cable from a port on the new router elsewhere in the house.? Operative word is easily

General Discussion Area / New Brexit deal

Agreed, done and dusted. Thank god.


But wait it has to get through parliament.  Cannot see that happening.

General Car Chat / Omega owner handbooks and holder

I guess when folk scrap a car they hang on to handbooks.

General Discussion Area / Drugs like cocaine
« on: 11 October 2019, 13:23:26 »
Anyone see the item that suggested around 570,000 helpings of cocaine are served up in London each day!

When I was in Scarborough recently people were smoking weed openly.

Is society tolerating drug use because it helps the economy?   Too difficult to stop supply lines? Too much money being paid to the police to be elsewhere? The going rate for a policeman to be “ elsewhere” when a drug boat lands in Southern Spain is a measly 60k apparently.

Does it matter?
