Wait until you start on Tek 'scopes. Think I'm on 7 currently. I need help. :-\
Good thing about Scopes is its one of the few Tools that you can use One to fix the Other One.  :)

The only 'selfie' I'm familiar with doesn't involve a camera. Merely the application of a reliable wrist action. ::)
Oh Dear, Oh well, look on the bright side at least your doing it with someone you love.  ;D

Im just trying to think with the collection of Real Sata HDs Ive got, dont think Ive ever had one fail yet, some make some wonderful noises when spinning but there all still working, maybe theres life in the Old Vinyls yet.  ;D :-\

I recently acquired a 1990s vintage SCSI drive (3.5", so relatively modern ;D) .. I'm going to be interested to see if it spins up once the replacement PSU for it's enclosure arrives ;D (it's inside a http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/impact500mk2 )
My money is on it will still be a worker  :y              ..........now, about these IDE Drives you wanna buy off me.  ;D

I'm in the market for some 1TB (or 960Gb ;D) SSDs, but I'm more of an upmarket man, due to the spanking they will get.  They will end up in servers ;D, and I'm far too tight to pay for enterprise class SSDs (about £8k for 800Gb).

Currently, the SSDs in the servers are 2 x 960Gb SANdisk Ultra II's per server, alongside the 8 x 1.2Tb SAS drives per server.  These SSDs have had 3 or 4 years of being thrashed and have not missed a beat :y
My first 2 SSD's I ever owned were SanDisk Ultra II's, both were 480gb, bought on separate occasions from different sources, and they wernt cheap at the time either, both are now screwed, first one just gave up the ghost one day, never to be seen since, dead as a Do Do, Second one kept Freezing before giving up, occasionally it shows up with a Partition Tool, but as soon as you try and do anything with it, Partition, Format etc, just disappears again, till next time. Other one was a 500gb WD which lasted about a year before dying  >:(

Only others Ive had since are a 500gb Kingston Memory which is still going strong, and a Samsumg 256gb in a M2 Slot, both still good, no issues, Oh, and them Cheapo Light Weights, Integral 25 Quid Jobbies, there surprisingly still going.  :)

Android TV Box or some simple Roku's Boxes streamed at 720p/1080p using Android App should do it.

The Free 'All Connect' is a good little Android App Streamer  ;)

Streamng is no good for me as internet is limited during day hence why I download during unlimited night period and watch later.. it is the download ability and then crucially being able to transmit to a tv.

Last night I downloaded an all4 program to ipad. Plays fine on ipad but only sound on TV this morning. Most frustrating.
Doesnt the Firestick and or Fire Tablet let you download certain Films or Shows from Amazon, having said that guessing its only Free Material or Stuff that you Own or Bought from Prime?

Other way is is as DG suggests, Smart Box or TV then Record it, but guessing any Protected stuff that gets piped through an HDMI Cable will be restricted, so back to the old fashion way if your Smart Box has RGB or Composite Out (ie early Roku's) then you should be able to record that but not in HD.

Other than that then your looking a Video Screen Grabber, which will, depending on type, Grab and Save the Material whilst its being Streamed on a Laptop or what ever, Note. you dont necessarily have to stream the whole content with these, just start streaming then pause it the Lappy, the content will still get Grabbed and Saved without worrying about Streaming Bandwidth. but your have to do your own Homework as were nearly touching a dodgy subject in terms of potential Copyright Software.

Good spot, good value, but not quite the saving they claim, as Crucial MX 1Tb have been under £200 for a while.

At £140 I'd consider having one if it was another brand :)

Ok, well if you dont trust Crucial and want a slightly cheaper make there is always this for £118 for 960gb -

and its 3D NAND for the money.  ;)

Mine is a 5, hers is a 6.
So we know know who wears the Trousers in your Place then.  ;D

Mine is Euro3 as per most others here, currently ULEZ expansion is just shy of the office, so won’t impact the commute.

If they tweak ULEZ or expand it further, my 3.2 will be up for sale.  :'(
Year 2021 will be the next Tweak, North and South Circular as it stands at the moment, but there probably go as far as the current LEZ Zone for Vans shortly after that.

My Omega is Euro 3 whatever that is. ???
Put in the reg of the 190 and it said far cough.  ;D
In a Nut Shell Euro 3 means dont even think about driving into London next Year without prior arrangement with your Bank Manager  ;D

How old is the Merc?, if it Pre Euro something or other or if the VRM been changed (Private Plate) then probably wont look up, or if its been registered as Alternative, Dual Fuel or Bi Fuel, etc, may not have a Euro Standard or its dropped off the DVLA Register.

I checked my Omega on the TFL website last year and it said it wouldn't be subject to the charge, which I found surprising.
190 is 1990, so long before Euroshite regs I would imagine.
TFL dont use the Euro or DVLA Data Base for Look Up, they use there Own which there probably still building so expect it to drop off the System before the New Zone kicks in.

Having said that, when I checked the current working T Charge over Xmas last Year, a 3.2 was showing as payable, where as my Ex Plod 3.2 Manual was saying No Charge, so not sure what thats all about unless the 3.2 Manuals are Euro 4 compliant.  :-\

It seems plans are afoot for the UK to have its own space station.Favoured location is in the north of Scotland and could see us launching small satellites-we are world leaders in the development and construction of these-as early as 2020.The location is favoured for its access to the polar orbits that are the principal aim for these satellites.It is reported that such a facility could bring in trillions to the economy.

We wont see none of it, Scotland will be a separate Country and a new EU Member if and when the money starts following in.

Omega and Battlebus is Euro3.  Shag is Euro5.

Not sure either impacts me yet, but it will be a way of forcing everyone onto unrealistic cars, or worse, onto dirty Victorian transport.
Probably wont be long before its 'Coming to a Cinema near you soon' so to speak, think Birmingham is Up next, followed by Manchester, Glasgow to name a few.

London Has its Congestion Charge, LEZ and T Charge already in place, ULEZ next Year and Extended ULEZ 2021 or 2020 if Mayor gets Hes way and before they introduce the next Wave, seems to be different rules for each Charge or they can all be added together, could prove to be an expensive Day Out if Peeps are not on the ball
