  1. The £1k mobile phone

    Nope. Surely you're using Face ID? I've have no issues with it or manual unlocking (and I've only done the latter twice that I can think of).
  2. Boxing thread

    Lomachenko wins. Nailed on. I won't say, KO, TKO, SD, UD or MD, but he wins. I won't be surprised if it is over within 5 rounds though. The guy looks unstoppable.
  3. F1 2017

    F1 would survive without Ferrari. Why wouldn't it? Hamilton catching Schumacher is fantasy. He'll probably make it 5.
  4. SPOTY 2017

    Ooooof. Comparing Hamilton to Fury must be a new low.
  5. SPOTY 2017

    The bookmakers haven't been wrong in a long time with SPOTY. They hav Joshua at 2/9f. The next closest is Hamilton at 6/1. Farah is 22/1. It's a foregone conclusion and rightly so in my view. What Joshua has done is remarkable.
  6. Boxing thread

    I think Wilder is out of his depth with Joshua. He can swing and he can hit, but Joshua is a completely different animal to anyone he has faced previously. I've yet to see Wilder get caught with a full punch and that's more to do with the quality of his opponents than his skill. I'm not saying he's clueless because he's a very gangly and tricky boxer. However, if Joshua hits him, which he will, I think it is lights out in potentially spectacular style. I think Dillian Whyte could beat Wilder too.
  7. Boxing thread

    The Fight of my Life programme was good, I enjoyed that. I've not seen the Bear Grylls thing you mention. He comes across as a very genuine and honest guy and I'd be surprised if he didn't win SPOTY although boxers don't generally fare well on it. I think Hamilton will win it again and I can't argue against his achievements but would rather Joshua won it this year.

    I don't know how I'd cope. In fact I wouldn't (see below). That said, we have businesses to run via it too, so it's a necessity more than a luxury. I know what that kind of speed feels like though. I'm currently in the Bahamas and trying to run the aforementioned businesses on this....

    It's more than that but in principle, yes. The Asus router and software just has a lot more configuration options as well as a far superior strength and spread of signal. The software lets you assign traffic priority, monitor device and software use, even allows for 'beam forming' (the direction of the signal). I found the SuperHub 2 to be far superior to the SuperHub 3 but that is largely irrelevant when you consider what they are - cheap routers. They're never really going to compete with products from other manufacturers that provide software the likes of Virgin and BT never will.

    We went from Vivid 200 to HomeWorks+ 300. I changed to an excellent Asus router for better WiFi signal and it worked a treat. I then, this week, had network sockets installed in the office so could get every drop of download speed out of the service. I've just ran a few more tests and it is between 326 to 335mb consistently (hasn't dropped below that no matter which server I select for testing). I have plugged a Netgear switch into one of the patch sockets and will be attaching a WiFi Hotspot to that for upstairs, just so we get the maximum speed possible on the upper floor.
  11. Football results today

    To be fair to Oldham, even I'd not be so cruel as to suggest they're as disadvantaged as Scotland. Oldham would beat Scotland in a game of football. And I don't mean Oldham Athletic. I mean any 11 people plucked from the streets of Oldham, regardless of age. That said, they'd probably beat Oldham Athletic too.

    Over WiFi. That said, I've just (today) had network sockets installed in the office (at home) as part of an electrical project they've been here doing for 2 days. That means I have just registered a speed of 334mb in the office at the back of the house, on the upper floor, over the cable.
  13. I'd pick a Koenigsegg over any Bugatti. They're just gorgeous cars. That braking is quite spectacular too. He must have been having his inards rearranged.
  14. WiFi extension

    Virgin HomeWorks+ 300mb regularly gives us 320-330mbps. Like anyone else, they can have their moments of shitness but generally it has been incredibly reliable and very, very fast. It's that quick that I won't be posting this until 28 minutes into the future but you'll have already read it.

    You didn't happen to spot a yellow Vauxhall Corsa did you?
