    WOF, you still don’t get it. That is the tariffs we will charge others not what others will charge us. This is not the terms under which we trade now because the EU will be charging us those very same tariffs you listed vs the zero % we enjoy now.

    That’s why the Welsh hill farmers will face obliteration as a 40% tax will be charged on their…[Read more]

    You are absolutely nuts if you think No Deal is an answer. But I half hope you get your way so that people can see just what lies they’ve been told. It’s about so much more than the WTO rules everyone keeps banging on about and they’re bad enough.

    If you truly believe what you’re saying there is no room for discussion. It’s like trying to talk…[Read more]

    Who does he think he is? Theresa May? Wow, I just scored a spectacular own goal. Never mind, I survived. Carry on facing the wrong way and put your foot to the floor.

    Perhaps he’s trying to keep Land Rover in business?

    As it says, did my first Ryzen build today, very impressed. Ryzen 3 2200G, MSI B450M PRO-M2 , 8GB ram, WD Green 240GB M2, Thermaltake H17 case and Thermaltake Litepower 450 watt 80 plus PSU.

    Tidy or what 😊 It’s silent too.

    One glaring error on behalf of AMD and MSI. The HSF has a bulge at the top for the sole purpose of stating it’s AMD. Th…[Read more]

  • Looks good, brought back some memories. Shame it won’t work with my laptop graphics, will try it on the workshop desktop when I get a chance.

    This is still management of the Tory party first and the country second. Unfortunately the only untouchable person out of all this is TM and she’s the problem. She will put clinging onto power before anything else.

    One thing is the ERG are now a spent force, they proven to have the tactical skills of David Cameron and the planning ability of…[Read more]

  • Dave Rice replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 5 days, 10 hours ago

    No she’s just incompetent. Anyone who managed to lose a 20+ lead in the last election to Corbyn couldn’t conspire their way out of a paper bag. Andrew Neil had Lord Snooty backed into corners of his own making on BBC2 this evening. They are pressing them hard now on WTO matters and it’s clear that’s a bunch of half truths too.

    I have absolutely…[Read more]

    People just don’t seem to understand WTO is another rules based organisation, you can’t just do what you want with no implications. If the EU dropped say the 40% lamb tariff it would have to be for all countries and not just the UK. That isn’t going to happen.

    Only a single country (Mauritania) trades under just WTO rules, you create trade…[Read more]

    I was very careful not to say Brexit was to blame for JLR’s woes, my point was that the WTO tariffs would hardly help. Another example of being told we think X when we don’t.

    Some may say Dearlove (head of intelligence at the time of Iraq) is indulging in his own Project Fear. What happens to the EU Arrest Warrant with No Deal?

    They’re probably going to concentrate on the loss of jobs at Jaguar, a 10% tariff on their cars and 4.5% on components will really add to their woes. And no the automotive industry doesn’t think the inevitable drop in sterling will actually help them.

    And what the Japanese PM has had to say: “Japanese PM tells May ‘whole world’ wants her to avoid…[Read more]

    They are primarily salesmen not techies, that’s the problem. BJM once got banned from PCW for stepping in and telling a customer they were being misled.

  • Dave Rice replied to the topic New monitor – maybe in the forum PC Talk 1 week, 5 days ago

    I’d go for the gas assisted arm as it’s not much more.

  • Like the Autosave but I have an easier idea than Google Drive. With W10 and W7 you can use the “File History” backup option to a USB stick. In File Explorer in the Properties of the file there’s a tab called Previous Versions that will be populated with just that.

    I believe only incremental changes to the files are saved so it should be quite…[Read more]

  • Dave Rice replied to the topic New monitor – maybe in the forum PC Talk 1 week, 6 days ago

    I love AOC monitors. Looks like a good one.

  • Could well be if it’s an M2 pci-e card and not a SATA one as it will be using some of the lanes, may be all of them.

  • Dave Rice replied to the topic Possible compatability problem. in the forum PC Talk 2 weeks ago

    Good luck.

  • It’s not showing in the BIOS that’s what makes me think it’s hardware rather than Windows. Same horse, different jockey, whatever it’s still a non runner 🤔

  • Dave Rice replied to the topic Flickr in the forum Photography 2 weeks, 1 day ago

    Synology’s Disk Station o/s (it’s Linux underneath) and free apps are fantastic at drawing everything from everywhere into one place. You can then share it all back out again very securely. Photo Station has the same sort of album function as Google Photos and the associated Moments app adds face and place recognition.

    Cloud Sync knows about 19…[Read more]

  • >4 lanes does seem a lot for a sound card but you also wonder why a sound card would be different from any other BIOS (UEFI) wise.

    Just had a thought about “legacy” devices, but that can open a whole other can of worms. See if there’s a setting to put just pci-e into legacy mode, worth a try.

  • The A320 is the budget end so has limited pci-e lanes compared to the B and X motherboards.

    So the standards have been met but the resources aren’t sufficient. It’s like trying to carry a 30 ton load in a Transit.
