  1. WiFi extension

    I'd leave Powerline as a last resort. In theory it's a good idea but in practise they'll get nowhere near the headline figures and depending on your wiring may give you such a poor connection that you'd be better off with iffy wireless. I like Ubiquiti wireless stuff, I have 3 of these in my large 4 bed house and I get great signal all over the house and in the back garden. In addition to the access points you need something to act as a controller but I can tell you more about that if you're interested. My brother has the new BT HomeHub and it's pretty rubbish, the wireless range is marginally better but the throughput tails off very badly so whilst there's a signal in all the bodrooms the throughout isn't good enough for Netflix to work reliably. He's getting a couple of the Ubiquiti access points I have.
  2. VR46 - Enduro Accident

    What an amazing ride from an amazing rider!
  3. F1 2017

    Wise, as this quite from the article would suggest - " It was a good thing they were wearing sunglasses, in case they had to look in the mirror "
  4. VR46 - Enduro Accident

    Very bad news, I hope he's back on the bike soon.
  5. BTCC 2017

    I'd agree with that
  6. BTCC 2017

    Sheddon is definitely not averse to a bit of 'push to pass' overtaking.
  7. Formula E

    I've only caught a few bits of Formula E but I've quite enjoyed it. I don't understand the rules and car swap stuff but the racing is quite good.
  8. They could but they wanted to get a massive userbase that use the product a lot. That way people are often left with little choice but to pay up.
  9. No, not really. The cost of bandwidth isn't the issue, it's the desire to monetise things that's causing it.
  10. It's fecking awful, all but unusable.
  11. Actually, I won't edit the post - the edit button is no longer there. Sorry, can't be arsed to post from scratch. TSN needs a fecking kick. It's as slow as anything and now I can't edit an old post. Feck that. Feck that in the ear.
  12. Bastards. They want $400 to enable 3rd party hosting. They can feck off. I'll upload them somewhere else and edit the posts
  13. Apple Watch launch

    I agree, they're not the absolute must have devices that Apple were hoping but I do find it very useful. Apple Pay is great but as you said it's a pain that the readers are on the wrong side so you end up having to contort your wrist a bit to use it. Just yesterday I had to go the post office and was in a rush so ended up leaving my wallet and phone at home. Good job I had my Apple watch on so that I could pay. Mostly I use mine for the same reasons as you - activity tracking and calendar notifications.
  14. Apple Watch launch

    I'm still wearing mine pretty much every day.
  15. 1Gbps Fibre Internet

    Nice. There's talk of a local company around here offering gigabit fibre but I can't see it happening sadly. I'd really like more upstream, the 20Mbps I get from BT Infinity isn't enough.
