General Discussion Area / Sat Nav Choice
« on: 05 September 2018, 12:39:00 »
Allways been a fan of Tomtom my current one being the Tomtom XXL.

Like the the large screen and ease of use, but sadly allthough maps are up to date am finding the maps are not acurate, junctions (local ones) are just classeda straight through (no stopping)  Allthought the SPECS carmera are listed on the A61 after leaving the M1 the speeds are wrong etc.

So thinking of going Garmin DriveSmart 61LMT-D with Full Europe Maps 6" Sat Nav

Any thoughts Tomtom versus Garmin? :y

General Discussion Area / Coke
« on: 28 August 2018, 00:17:02 »
Picked my ex girlfriend up from work tonight and we normally nip to the chippy for a bite to eat and I generally grab a can of diet coke to drink.

Thinking I was smart I asked her to grab a can from a morrisons petrol station thinking it would save me some money.  Sadly they only had the 500ml bottles costing £1.30.

Just looked on a compare site, cheapest 500ml was £1.29.  Yet a 2l bottle of diet coke caffine free is £166 (or 2 for £3.00)

Day light robbery, and I thought petrol was exspensive. :-\

Just out of interest.

Saw a post from a new member wanting an engine in the spares section.

Glanced at his info and he has made "0" posts, but yet has posted in the spares section that requires a minimum of 250 posts. ;D

Just watching the Worlds Most Exspensive cars and they are talking about the Cobra.


I remembered seeing one years ago, a twin turbo "COB 1" reg number. 8)

Did a search for it and seems it was up for auction years ago.  Wonder what it would fetch these days. ::)

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 1.2.7.8 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

General Discussion Area / Food - Child hood days
« on: 08 January 2018, 22:08:55 »
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  ::)

Well that's another pass

Put a new battery on to save the hassle and be confident for Christmas.
Had a new P7 fitted last year
but that's basically all straight passed during my ownership.
