  • Looking at a potential upgrade from the Moto G5.

    Have done a quick look around and the P20 and Honor 10 seem to be about the reasonable price point. They seem identical other than the camera and I’m not sure a camera can be £200 more!

    Any idea or recommendations?

  • Drezha started the topic Ruddy microSD cards in the forum Raspberry Pi 4 days ago

    Been playing this morning with various Pi settings and been trying to get my microSD setup (I had been playing with PiBakery) but I can’t tell if it’s the program that’s rubbish or my microSD cards! Tried a number of cards and have 3 duff ones – a TDK 16GB, a Kingston 2GB and a 16GB Sandisk, all seemed to throw errors up.

    I think I’ll be looking…[Read more]

    The John Lewis broadband ones do when I was in there the other day.

    Well, I’ve never used an Android tablet and come away thinking that was a good exerpeince, so horses for courses!

     

    I use my iPad Pro 10.5 regularly for work. I use the Site Audit Pro app a lot (I notice it’s now avaialble for Android), as it helps when I do my risk assessments but that’s hardly an app that everyone will want to use! This is…[Read more]

    Well, whatever is running continues to run with no issues and it restarts and then does actually start processing the queue again, so it does seem to work.

  • Drezha replied to the topic NFS Sharing in the forum Linux Talk 1 week, 6 days ago

    I believe that it is the same share. I hadn’t looked in to Torque to much, other than when I’ve had to ignore it and run files on the nodes individually whilst he was on holiday and it went wrong and a restart wouldn’t fit it.

    I thought it was just issued commands via SSH, but maybe not.

  • Drezha replied to the topic NFS Sharing in the forum Linux Talk 2 weeks ago

    The queue system is Torque. We submit the modelling jobs to the TORQUE queue and then as machines free up, the next models get run. For whatever reason, it sometimes fails to pass on the jobs and a reboot solves the issue.

    It terms of data loss, I don’t think we’ve seen any errors from missing data, so perhaps it is playing catch up. I guess the…[Read more]

    I think I know the answer to this already, but I thought I’d best check, as I can’t get a straight answer from our CFD tech or at least an answer I don’t think is correct.

    At work, he’s set up out our modelling machines in to a cluster. Nothing like a Beowulf cluster, as that was initially tried and suffered a slowdown as it was communicating…[Read more]

    Or I used yed for my diagramming needs if I’m not on the iPad.

  • Thanks – I did a search but couldn’t recall where it was and the search wasn’t to helpful.

    Perhaps not the fastest, but ~1TB SSD on the cheap! I’m tempted as well but I don’t carry around that much data normally!

  • Did I see somewhere you suggesting this instead of a homeplugs? It looks like we’ll be moving my home office upstairs and away from the back room, where it currently is and wired in with a Cat6 cable under the floorboards (installed prior to my purchase of the house). With it going upstairs, I’m looking at my options. I can get wifi in the…[Read more]

    Saw a 960GB one on eBuyer for £140 recently that almost temped me.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Waze issues. in the forum Android Talk 3 weeks ago

    That makes more sense. I’d only used Google Maps so that explains why I didn’t come across the issue. Not quite a draconian as Apple CarPlay then which only apps Apple approve (though I hear this may well be relaxed slightly in iOS 12, allowing the use of Google Maps, not Apple Maps).

  • Drezha replied to the topic A little bit miffed about Lara in the forum Linux Talk 3 weeks ago

    I’m dying to try this out as well. I see Dawn of War is on the list, so I’ll be downloading and installing that when I get a chance at a weekend – in like three weekends time when I’m not away!

  • Drezha replied to the topic Waze issues. in the forum Android Talk 3 weeks ago

    Sure that’s not the case – unless it doesn’t apply to Music programs? Because I’ve had Doubletwist and DS Audio working through it I’m sure. I’ll have to check again.

  • I use these – I have one for my razorblades from shaving. Any moneybox would do.

  • Drezha replied to the topic Disenchantment. in the forum TV, Film & Music 1 month ago

    Watched the entire season (well, 10 episodes) over the weekend and quite enjoyed it. Look forward to the next ones.

  • Interesting – I’ve not had an email from them.

    Mind, the last time I used Carphone Warehouse (about a month ago when I bought my Moto G6), they wanted my email and address etc when I was purchasing a SIM free phone. I couldn’t be bothered to much at the time, but I mean why do they need that information for a purchase in a shop?

  • Drezha replied to the topic Travel Router in the forum Other Tech 1 month ago

    I’m using one of the Nighthawk routes and have been pretty impressed with it. Might well have a few years left in it yet. I can’t recall why I binned off the BT Homehub, but there was probably a reason I dropped £100 on a router!
