Re: Long distance WiFi advice

I was following this thread in the hopes of getting wifi access into my shed/workshop that is about 12 metres from the router indoors but having seen the prices of the proposed solutions I'll be giving the idea a miss. Have a look at "Mesh" systems they do that very well. You can cough up for Googl...

Re: Internet providers are never wrong

WiMax .... yes. We were with a small local Wimax provider we inherited from the previous owners. It was always slow compared to what I was used to - but we got used to it - never use the internet and try to stream something - download where possible overnight etc. If it went wrong it would be at lea...

Re: Irish passport cards

It does sound like an EU identity card - does Ireland issue Identity Cards? There was talk in the UK of having a "voluntary" ID card linked to your passport maybe 10 years ago now - it was one of those odd we're British we don't do identity cards but it would be useful to have a card. It could be a ...

Re: Kinetic light switches

I tried to order my kinetic switches this morning, but after doing the card payment a message came up saying they were unable to fufill the order and it had been cancelled. I've had a look at alternative models and suppliers, but can't find others with a 15v rating - how important is this? I'd also...

Re: Replacement chain saw.

I'd second whats already been said re cheap carbs from e bay. As an aside - I bought a Worx chainsaw including batteries on offer on Amazon for 90'ish quid. Bloody great little thing - not the biggest chain and a standard battery only last 20 minutes if you're busy. But it starts first time - its so...

Re: Kindle recovery

As before its bought you should have access to the store and be able to redownload - if its not then surely its on the computer or do you download straight to the kindle?

Where is it jammed? In a hole you were chiselling out or is it the bit jammed in the drill?
In the drill - the wall/floor would respond to a big hammer.....
