    Isn’t 28 W already reasonably low?

    Almost kills runner.

    Blames runner.

    Law wouldn’t agree.

    • so you would deliberately put yourself in a dangerous position when you didn’t need to? And btw, I didn’t even touch the runner, despite his arrogance in assuming he could be seen, which in this case, he couldn’t.

    Yes, but it’s not exactly scientific research that is missing out when the GPUs are used to mine Ethereum. Maybe there’s a net economic benefit from all those scientific researchers spending less time gaming.

  • troll posted a new activity comment 3 months, 1 week ago

    Not true. Bitcoin is mined with ASIC chips which are no good for anything other than mining Bitcoin. Trying to mine Bitcoin with a PC CPU or even a GPU is pointless, you’ll get so little it won’t come close to paying for the electricity.

    • Oh, I must have been thinking of ethereum which are mined through GPU’s then.

    Put up a notice informing them of the car parking charges that you will apply.

    They’ll ignore it and eventually you’ll end up having to go to the high court where they’ll retrieve your money for you – for a small fee.

    Seen it all on daytime TV.

  • @josh I think that its a motivational phrase for the drones that work there.

    @torieboy I hope someone cuts off your legs and forces you to work for less than minimum wage all hours under the “work program” or whatever they are calling it nowadays.

  • These devices sound awful! Must have this that and other just to use. Plus you got the fact that Google does not pay taxes and is using these devices to control what people think by limiting people to what Google considers is right and wrong.

    Whats wrong with the good old cd player?

    Return it and get your moeny back I say!

  • … So, in this position, who would you speak to? Physio, sports massage, osteopath?

    My GP.

  • Can’t you contact the manufacturer? They will be able to tell you the rating.

  • troll replied to the topic Do you need antivirus? in the forum General Chat 4 months ago

    Most bad stuff these days is generically referred to as malware which encompasses everything from viruses to keyloggers to spyware to what ever else nasty you can think of.

    Anti Virus software not only helps keep viruses out but it can also keep quite a bit of malware out in general. They also have the ability to stop you getting caught out by…[Read more]

  • I can’t believe China wanting to ignore thousands of years of keeping to itself to wanting to seek world domination.

    I can’t see Russia wanting world domination either, however the USA is a more scary prospect. And at least the UK is keeping its friends closer, or at least till Trump waddled on the scene.

    Maybe China and Russia could become…[Read more]

  • As our bean counters threaten military spending, Russia and China are considered a threat to try to increase funding for the armed forces.

    But are those Red nations a physical threat to our way of life?

    Apart from Russia playing war games, are they known for invading counties that they did not think were theirs ideologicaly?

    Rather than…[Read more]

  • troll replied to the topic how to cure muscle spasms in back? in the forum Health 4 months ago

    went to see a physio yesterday who did a fact find but sadly no hands on treatment , he seems to think I have muscle spasms due to a spinal problem but didn’t give me a diagnosis. I didn’t warm to him tbh he seemed ‘ going through the motions ‘ but I have a treatment session next week so will see after that.

    He’s a physio so he can’t give you a…[Read more]

  • These products to me seem to serve Google/amazon more than they would serve me.

    I agree, for now. There’s obviously potential in the technology but from where I sit, I can’t yet see that anyone’s dropped on the ‘killer app’, to use a dreadful modern phrase, that turns it from something that might save you a couple of seconds checking something…[Read more]

  • troll replied to the topic Population growth in the forum General Chat 4 months, 1 week ago

    The US is actually shrinking world populationas they also are having 1.7 children per couple. Their growth, like the UK is purely down to net immigration.

    In planetary terms that means they’re not contributing to population growth at all.

  • troll replied to the topic I've given up diet drinks in the forum Health 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    Good luck!
    I read the study but will continue to drink diet drinks. I’m type one diabetic, I eat low carb high fibre, don’t smoke, certainly don’t do drugs and rarely drink so a nice cold can of Diet Coke is a nice treat. I’ve cut back a lot on carbonated drinks but I restrict enough in my life. I’ll take the risk.

  • If you just need a one-off spring clean, then contact a company and they will do a one-off, if you need Regular cleaner then it’s best to use word-of-mouth to find a good one.

  • Why don’t you speak to a chiropodist? They would advise you further.

  • troll replied to the topic How to grow taller? in the forum Health 4 months, 2 weeks ago

    One of my friends wears height increasing insoles that you basically put inside your shoes and they will make you a couple inches taller. I have tried them for myself and they do work and are quite comfortable to wear. Because they are discreetly placed inside you normal shoes and increase your heel height from within it means that they are hidden…[Read more]

  • Here are my calculations on life developing elsewhere in the universe…

    Some definitions. I use ‘life’ as shorthand for ‘intelligent life’. ‘N’ is the number of potentially habitable planets, and ‘P’ is the probability of intelligent life developing on any one planet. For a given N and P, we can ask what is the probability of life developing on…[Read more]
