    For those who have previously seen my shed.....you would NOT believe the current state. Prolly need to take an embarrassing pic....

  2. A new Hippie - wih the SuperPATH technique

    On Sept 18th I had a total hip replacement done in Sydney. This was done with the relatively new SuperPATH technique, where the incision is at ~135° from the front, and above (superior) to the hip...

    Heh heh, I must setting up a challenge then. The scripts are scripted not enscripted, although I suppose the en dash is enscripted. :;

    Lance – sounding good. I've written some scripts (for other purposes) that allow me type several special characters quite easily (that other wise need Alt + 4 digits) so for everyone else they are a...

    Call me a sceptic, but if I was going to provide a dodgy pwm, I'd definitely put a mildly painful price on it (say 10-15 bucks a year) to give it the appearance of legitimacy. A small earner on the...

    HEY! :D

    I just read a short but fascinating news article about a new battery tech using Zinc Bromide in a gel form.

    Thanks Lance. A couple of things come out of that (and your summary is more or less what I thought):

  8. Password managers – yeah, nah, what?

    There is much talk and recommendation of using a pwm, but how safe are they exactly?
    If I don't know my own passwords, how can I change them?
    Does the pwm change them regularly?
    What about my...

    Bring back replaceable batteries I say. Hmmph. I got ten years out of my Nokia 6110, with 4-5 new batteries ($4.50 each inc post from Hong Kong).

    Do you think it matters if the charging is interrupted? E.g. charging is started, get a phone call - easier to talk without cables and powerbanks in the way - recommence charging after the call.
  12. Best recharging treatment for Li-Ion batteries?

    I had always thought that Lion batteries should be used until 10%-20% charged, fully recharged, rinse and repeat. This seems to have worked well for my tool batteries, but given that they are...

    Healthier Salami (and tastier)

    I love Salami but it has high fat, and much of it is saturated. A simple solution is to gently fry it (dry pan). This also intensifies the flavour.

    I just did some now, and weighed it before and...

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hmmm. It says 5A 100W, which means 20V capability (for the cable). I just checked a Mac laptop which has a USB-C coming off its wall wart, and it's 30W, 15V, 2A.

  32. A question about a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)

    We get quite a lot of electrical storms up here, and seem to have a higher than usual amount of blackouts (e.g. one day last week there were four within 10 minutes), so the time has come to install a...

    :D

    It's surprising how much space hi-rez music takes up. Anything up to 10x the space of a normal CD (esp if it's 5.1 channels). Storage is pretty cheap though.
