General Discussion Area / PC Components (Shortages)
« on: Today at 18:01:42 »
I had considered building a new PC for myself but cant get the CPU that I want and adding to that a decent GPU.

Some stock for the CPU became available but I was too late. :-\

Now I read there is about (Possibly) to be a HDD/SSD shortage. :-X

Levis never made jeans in even sizes. 29, 31 waists & buy them a size big as they always shrank.

 ??? Are you sure? The last Levi's I bought were even sizes. I'm pretty certain they are genuine, as I bought them from the Levi store on the outskirts of LA.

How would you know these days.

About 45 years ago we were in the notrh of Malta watching the ferry come and a load of Levi trucks formed a bit of a convoy into Malta.

Just tried to find the factory on Gozo but it seems it was shut down in 2004

The handbrake is pulled on and realeased every now and again.

The car is hardley used and after advice given many years ago about parking a car up in gear, hand brake off and bricks to stop the wheels rotateing then I do the next best thing.

The car is parked on the level in Park and when it went for the MOT in Dec last year when the handbrake was applied I thought the car was going to fly off the rollers, Brake efficiency was brilliant.

If that 190 is for all four discs, pads and the fittings, I wouldn't hesitate. The price is reasonable, and ECP are convenient.
I'd probably add the handbrake shoes for another 20 if they haven't been done in the last decade...

Yes all in and free delivery I believe

I never actually use the hand brake so didnt bother adding that or rear shos to the list.

For Home and Play I've been using UC Browser which, wait for it, is basically a China release of Chrome, but without all the Google Spying and the need for Google Sign in,s. Been using it for donkeys years and never had any issues.

So they've replaced the Google spying with Chinese spying?
The minute you open up any browser, you are being spied on.

Correct.

plus on google they use your microphone to listen in and then you see pop up adverts about the the things talked about.

What do you all use.

My 2 main ones are Firefox & Chrome.  I have used Opera in the past and IE with out tweaking it I find is a waste of time.

Are there any others worth trying. :y

Bet that warranty doesn't cover repeatedly draining it flat

It has so far. ::)

Thumbs  up to the AA :y

Came out within 30 mins, cheekily asked if they could fit the hard wire kit for the booster lead & CTEK charger leads. np probs there.

Nipped back to Halfords and they swapped me the GB70 for the GB50 so that came home and got  fully charged., so its nice to be mobile again.

Plus with the advice given I found a hard case for the NOCO on the Tayna site so a good week so far.

Bonus is I also have a huge mobile phone back up battery and a decent torch in the car all the time. :y :y
