  • Can you see in the Android settings what’s using the data? That would show up what is using the data.

  • I wouldn’t want to go back to a pure petrol car (I’ve never owned a diesel so can’t comment). My Golf GTE (well, previous firms, but my company car) was fantastic. I loved the pure electric mode (though it was 30 miles of range).

    We had to go for a Toyota Hybrid this time when we had to buy the car ourselves as our budget couldn’t stretch to a…[Read more]

    Looking around, this appears to have Android 9 now, is that correct?

    Amazon have a UK version for £260 now. Mine went back as Android Auto issues meant it was pretty poor experience for me. However, as I changed jobs and the company car went back, we don’t have a compatible car now.

    Was looking at either this or a Moto G7 as need Android for so…[Read more]

    I tried to buy smaller ones for my Pi’s at one point, but it worked out more expensive!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Browsers. in the forum PC Talk 5 days, 21 hours ago

    PiHole works on a Pi Zero, o the original Pi would be no issues at all. It deals with the DNS queries only, so it’s relatively low hit to the performance. If you want to view the stats on the webpage etc, that takes a bit more time.

    I use Chrome at work (as it’s installed by IT so it’s either that or Edge or IE!) and at home I use Firefox – the…[Read more]

    Yeah, I forgot to turn roaming off on the Tesco SIM. By the time I’d walked off the plane to immigration, the phone reached my spending limit and stopped my data! (I’ve a £2.50 buffer).

    Turns out that it’s £5/MB on Tesco in the US…

  • I wanted something similar to monitor my room that I’m renting in Loughborough at the minute as it seemed very humid.

    I went for one of the cheaper sensors and have had no end of trouble with it – in the end I purchased this from Amazon for about the same price and saved myself hassle!

    However, then using the data is problematic, but as I only…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Pi in the forum Other Tech 5 days, 21 hours ago

    I also think if you’re running the Pi headless, you now also have to set the resolution for VNC within the config file as well (at least, I have had to for the last two times I’ve set the Pi up), otherwise it doesn’t boot a GUI up if not connected to a HDMI cable (or you could use one of these, which I have left over from running a Mac Mini server…[Read more]

    So after a few days on the cruise, it quickly became apparent that the connection on the Moto G5 was crappy – was getting Edge at best, occasionally HDSPA (or whatever it is).
    Resorted only to a WiFi at a McDonalds.

    Today I gave in and tried the SIM in my iPhone XR. Instantly got 4G (or I guess as the Yanks call it, LTE) so in the iPhone it’ll s…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Phones in the US in the forum Android Talk 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    It is. We wont be connecting – we can already buy passes for it online and we won’t forking out what they want for it!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Phones in the US in the forum Android Talk 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    Yeah, we won’t be calling anyone!

    Wedding was last year, so we’re a bit late with the honeymoon mind! We’re on a 7 day cruise around Hawaii then we’ve got 4 days in Vegas on the way back, so the cruise bit, we’ll not have internet (or signal for when we’re at sea). But it’s for bits when we’re out and about and want to check Tripadvisor or…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Phones in the US in the forum Android Talk 2 weeks, 6 days ago

    Thanks for the link. Another google search suggests Three roam on AT+T and that the 4G should therefore work on the Moto G5 if GSM Arena is to be believed (no reason why not!) It would appear that potentially I’d get online regardless of what version I have, as some of the bands overlap.

    The phone is currently in Manchester, whilst I’m in…[Read more]

    Am flying to the US on Friday for our honeymoon and the plan was to use a Three SIM with Go Roam for some internet access whilst out there if we need to use maps etc.

    However, it’s just occurred to me that I’m not sure that my phone will work, as my understanding is that they use different network frequencies?

    Plan was to use the SIM in my Moto…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 3 weeks, 1 day ago

    I was looking at doing that to my network when I get home, as then the Pi Hole should be able to use the domain names for it’s graphing. In fairness, that’s just a nice to have though (but it does help idenitify issues – my iPhone was freaking out last weekend over night for whatever reason, I think it was to do with the iOS update it was trying…[Read more]

  • So it’ll actually run a VM on the NAS itself? That’s pretty cool. At the minute I run a Pi alongside the NAS to run various tasks (such as Pi-Hole on). I also then run a Mac Mini as a server as well! I think the Mac Mini will replace both in fairness – as I just need to serve files around the house, which the Mac can do, and it can auto file…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    I ordered a Three SIM this week for our upcoming trip to the US (Three are the only ones that appear to support roaming in the US), I may look at ordering the service then as I’ll have a Three number to get the cheaper rate.

    However, my Virgin deal doesn’t end until March (checked today). With the upcoming house move, I believe they supply the…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Pi Conned in the forum Raspberry Pi 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    Thats one of my bug bears about the new Pi (the other being I forgot to order a HDMI adapter, so I couldn’t view it on the screen but that’s entirely on me!) Interesting to note that it wouln’t update – looks like I’ll have to have a go at a later date perhaps (but for now, my Pi 3+ is working nicely, so I’ll leave it as is for now!)

    The bpoot…[Read more]

    Only reason perhaps might be the signal in the apartment for 3? But that’s probably getting less of an issue these days.

  • Wikipedia seems to suggest that it’s Android and iOS only, so no luck with it on a Windows tablet. I’ve seen Bluestacks before for Android apps on Windows but I’ve never tried it myself.

    John – the install button is to remotely install it on to an Android device, not on to the Windows machine.

    Talking about Windows tablets, new workplace has…[Read more]

    Add on items I can see, but I thought Amazon had once again removed the free postage option for under £20 of items for non Prime members?
