Had this a while, easy to use and clean, cooking lunch yesterday and the halogen element has stopped working.

Not sure how easy spares are to obtain but has anyone ever replaced an halogen element in one of these or similar.

Any advice.  TIA. :y :y

General Discussion Area / Network Hub
« on: 20 January 2018, 03:20:30 »
I have had a NETGEAR DGND3700 for a few years now with no issues at all. :y

Also had a 8 port gigabit hub connected to it which has 2 PC's (i7 & AMD FX), TV, phone booster and DVD Recorder etc connected with no problems other than a burt out power supply a year ago. :-\

This is where the problem starts, thought the hub had packed up, so connected the i7 PC direct and all worked ok, so bought a new 8 port hub (Managed)(was late and I was stressed) and had no joy connecting, put it down to needing set up and ordered another 8 port PnP Gigabit hub, plugged it in tonight and still no connections on either PC, take the modem/router cable back to a PC all ok.

I allways rebooted after swapped cables and have tried the M/R cable ingoing to all hubs into each of the ports and not connected at all.  Also powered everything down and unplugged things etc.

Have run varius Modem/routers and add on hubs for years. but where am I going wrong with these hubs, Maybe 1 faulty but 2 brand new ones? Also tried alternative lan cables and new ones.

Feeling stupid as it's probably going to be something stupid.

Please also be nice to me as I am no network techie and a lot of it will be too technical for my tender brain. :-X

Just doing my Asda shop online and just fancied a change, so went looking for meatloaf and all that came up was dog food, so decided to look for nut roast, and the only option that came up was the Quorn crap.

Nothing can ever replace Mums cooking or all the home grown veggies that we had to hand, I gave up on the takeaways a few years ago with just the occasional one every 2 weeks or so, and now with all the processed and frozen food etc I am just getting fed up with it all.

But it is so sad that the basic stuff like the nut roast and meatloaf just is not available any more. :-\

and KFC dont deliver to our area  ::)

Bought a Bosch 5 year warranty battery for the car in February, as most of you know I dont get out much and as per usual went out to a flat battery yesterday, no big deal, Called the AA got the usual garbabe about the battery being Fubar and 1volt in 15 minutes load yada yada.

Had a good run out to recharge, will be going out at lunch to retry see if it held a charge and if starts have a run round to top the charge up for an inportant tun out tonight to pick a friend up (and yes doctor opti, she is a cracker and 27 years younger)

So as a backup plan I priced a replacement up

I paid £75.00 delivered (Eurocarparts through Amazon delivered to my door)

ECP and Halfords for the same Bosch 5year battery.

Sorry Bosch not showing now but £114 Yuasa (Halfrauds)  :-\
Bosch at ECP £157.99  :-X

General Discussion Area / Computers - RAID
« on: 03 December 2017, 18:55:12 »
Having Zillions of files scattered over numerous hard drives I decided a few weeks ago to have a massive sort out. :-\

The plan was to collate and sort in to folders/directories and then sift and sort duplicates out and maybe rename to contents (of some of the folders at least) for ease of indexing. ::)

In total I now have :- ::)

Numerous 1tb drives
3+ 2tb drives
2+ 3tb drives

I added 2 x 4tb SSHD Seagate's one of which is already fubar and I don't have a clue how much data is lost or whether it's backup exists or not.

Replaced the 4tb SSHD with a Toshiba drive and am quite impressed so went and bought a 6tb Toshiba with 128mb cache runs at 7200rpm, hadn't focused on speed of other drives as they are only for back.

The plan is to run a RAID setup up (Still reading up on what's what) but the question is, if all the drives are of equal size do they have to be the same make. 8)

I am also surmising that if I use RAID 5 that all disks need to be identical.  (Considering using 3 6tb Toshiba drives)

If for any reason I took one of the raid storage drives out will the data be readable in another PC? ???

TIA :y

General Discussion Area / RANT - PC Cases
« on: 30 September 2017, 17:24:03 »
Looking for a new case, Idealy with a hot swat SSD

Thing is that all the cases I like dont have 5.25 drive bays any more.  I must be old fashioned because I still want to fit my DVD/RW an BR/RW in my case (even though I dont use them.

So thinking smart, I went looking for external cases for the Optical drives. . . . . . . Now looking at the Vodka bottle in the corner as I give up. :(
