  1. Does it need to be Windows? Just asking, because the chrome books are pretty joyous these days if you just want to browse the web and such like... maybe something like this https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Computers-Accessories/Acer-CB3-431-Chromebook-Celeron-Storage/B01J3UVWKO/ref=lp_758129031_1_2/258-4352715-1857648?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1491445141&sr=1-2 for 274 quid.
  2. So bloody slow!

    OK all fixed apparently... As you were.
  3. So bloody slow!

    Please but away your tray tables and fasten your seatbelts, we may experience turbulence for the next couple of days while IPB gets their license server fixed up so we can speak to it. Will let you know when it's sorted.

  6. Ooooo! New shiny forum!

    Try going here: http://www.tyresmoke.net/forum/followed/ And then unfollow stuff you don't want to get notifications about. Also you can go here http://www.tyresmoke.net/forum/notifications/options/ and make sure you're not auto following new stuff... Only get one update a week etc. Hope that helps.

  8. Virus or bug?

    That should do it, again. Sorry, my bad.
  9. Virus or bug?

    Please can you try again and let me know if it's still doing it? It's not a virus, but it could be this thing called mod_pagespeed - i've just turned it off.
  10. So bloody slow!

    Morning Campers, soon as the football has finished I'll take a look. Next time it's slow can someone let me know what the time is please. Ta.
  11. OSX Mavericks ?

    The only i got from it was that it massively improved the use of a second screen on my laptop. You couldn't use both of them properly before mavericks and now they work completely joyously independently, which is nice. Other than that, didn't really notice much difference.
  12. (Another - not really!) Home network query

    Is your phone an android? You could use this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&hl=en to check what's going on with the SSIDs and also (if your phone supports it) flip between 2.4/5GHz to check the SSIDs are being broadast on the right channels/frequencies. Failing that you can stick inSSIDer on your Windows Laptop http://files.metageek.net/downloads/inSSIDer-installer.msi To check the network connectivity you could try pinging using your from phone using this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.overlook.android.fing&hl=en (again android only). Also check the network strength using either of the above. You did lose me at current, but as far as i know, a repeater wouldn't have a cabled connection to the network. That's more of an access point. It might be you've created a switching loop of power and might by plugging your repeater into the the same LAN (assuming all your access points just bridge between your WifI/LAN, which is what most access points do).
  13. Top Gear test track now on Google Street View

    All news stig i'm afraid... some say, English is his third language. I think it was all pretty tongue in cheek though. Haha i think it's illegal in Australia!

    Looks like Gambon could use some work http://www.tyresmoke.net/news/top-gear-test-track-street-view/
  15. Broken Stuff

    Hmmm that's no good.... so what happens if you paste the URL into a post on the iPad? Oh and are you seeing the mobile theme or the full on desktop theme?
