  • I mean some of the services I’ve looked at are pay to edit – once you stop paying, you can keep all the data and access them, but cannot edit or create new.

    One of my favourite websites is Alternativeto.net and I’ll check it for software that I am happy with on occasion, just to see what’s out there. Can’t hurt to investigate options!

  • Must of missed the downtime (work was obviously keeping me busy today!)

  • I’ve used Note Station in the past and been fairly impressed with it – it replaced Evernote for me for a time, but then I moved to Zim. I’m not really looking at moving away from that at the minute, as I like it and it stores everything in plain text.

    However, Note Station could come in handy for work, as the new job doesn’t let me install…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Software Subscriptions in the forum Software Talk 1 week, 1 day ago

    In terms of the writing software I used, yes, it got disabled basically when it switched (thanks iOS updates). Generally, it hasn’t for other software – thankfully 1Password still allows me to use without a subscription (and use Dropbox to sync), rather than it’s inbuilt sync storage, though I may have to change this if my new job doesn’t let me…[Read more]

  • With news that another of the apps I used on the iPad has recently switched to a subscription model, I find myself being driven more and more towards FOSS and Linux. After all, there’s a limit to how much money I can spend a month and paying for every single bit of software I currently use (some of them very rarely), isn’t a cost effective…[Read more]

  • That did the trick!

    Cheers for the article. I’d found something similar last night but required manually browsing the to the INF file etc and didn’t work anyhow 🙁

    All sorted now mind.

  • Ok, I should be fine once the latest update is complete then, as the download I have states 16225 and systeminfo states 15063, so I’m hoping this will work!

  • So I’d installed Windows 10 on my NUC a while ago, and I’ve got round to ensuring that the drivers are up to date, as I’d noticed that Youtube was laggy (previously it was used at cadets, so for maybe two hours at a time and was only used for office stuff).

    I’ve downloaded the Intel driver management stuff, and gone through it – but basically it…[Read more]

  • Not only might you need public liability insurance, you may need professional indemnity insurace. I was considering setting myself up recently and looked in to it and I certainly needed PI insurance (fire is bit of a touchy subject still at the minute!) Instead, I’m hauling across the country to the Midlands again to work at the University but I…[Read more]

    LTT covered this not to long ago.

    TL;DW; Sortof fixes the PC, But Mostly No

  • Drezha replied to the topic Raspberry Pi 4 in the forum Raspberry Pi 3 weeks, 3 days ago

    Yeah, I’ve ended up going back to the Pi3+ for the time being as that works quite nicely for what I need to do for the time being.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 1 month ago

    This is what we’ve been using at cadets for the past few month or so.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Raspberry Pi 4 in the forum Raspberry Pi 1 month, 1 week ago

    This was why I was running in to issues… The Pi 4 doesn’t support booting from USB! At least, not yet and requires some playing around and using the Pi as the bootloader.

  • Drezha replied to the topic GDPR -UK a Soft Touch in the forum UK 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    I have a feeling that the data is already being sent through a VPN, even whilst in the office, as if I try and log in on an Apple device whilst in the office (in Manchester), it suggests that I’m signing in via London. In addition, trying to save files over the VPN from home can be slow – but I’m on a 70Mbps connection with Virgin (though there…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic GDPR -UK a Soft Touch in the forum UK 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Here’s hoping they have a faster internet connection than my current workplace! Using work VPN is a nightmare. Even worse when used on a dodgy/slow hotel wifi – to the extent that my current projects are transported around with my on my portable SSD. Bitlocker encrypted throgh.

    As to D-Dan’s comments, it has caused me issues with the cadets as…[Read more]

    I didn’t see a fan module, though did buy the heatsinks for it as well – is this the one you mean?

    I’ll see how I get one – most of the time, it’s fairly idle as it runs Pi Hole, but then I get it converting Youtube video and that hits the CPU as you might expect.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Raspberry Pi 4 in the forum Raspberry Pi 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Ordered myself the 2GB version. I use it as a remote desktop over VNC, so improved desktop performance would be good. The 4GB version was sold out by the time I decided.

    I didn’t really need, but I’m coming to the end of a major project at work and thought I’ll have some time to myself next week.

  • Haven’t had issues with DS Photo previously, but I did switch to Photosync a while back, because it can file them in yearly/monthly folders automatically.

  • Drezha replied to the topic CyberPunk 2077 in the forum Gaming 2 months, 1 week ago

    I’m thinking I’ll get it and from GOG this time, as they’re doing a deal for it and the Witcher series.

    £50 is pricey, but looking back, they were £30 when I was a kid, and that was almost 16 years ago, so accounting for inflation, it’s not to bad.

    Trouble is, I’m still considering Fallout 76, even after the bad press (as it looks like it’s g…[Read more]

  • Drezha replied to the topic Three 4G HomeFi in the forum Other Tech 2 months, 1 week ago

    Thanks for the Smarty idea – just ordered that for cadets. It’s Unlimited and not speed limited like the GiffGaff unlimited SIM, so we’ll use that until the civilian committee can figure out a broadband package…

     

    35Mbps? Lol – I managed to stream the Guy Martin 4OD documentary this evening on my crappy 2.5Mbps Travelodge wifi, so something…[Read more]
