    Here’s a better view of the slots

    If you’re on Twitter, it might be worth asking @PaulOBrien from Modaco. He’s tested them both recently ๐Ÿ™‚

    That would be brilliant Dan, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    If it’s there, let me know what you want for it, and for postageย 👍

  • That’s what’s confusing though. The cables are routed away from the WWAN slot, to the 1/2 mini slot next to it. They’re going through cutouts in the laptop too, so it’s not just a case of them being moved at some point in the past.

    It does, yeah, under the battery.

    Sorry, I’m still used to Dropbox, and not Google Photos

     

    I’m a bit confused now that I’ve looked into it though, as my wifi card (to the right of this pic) has three antenna cables, but the ac card you and Dave mention in this thread only has two. Also, the slot on the left there has two antenna cables, but it’s apparently not for wifi, WWAN,…[Read more]

    That’s a coincidence. I was going to post asking if this was to do with the SIM on my new Dell:

    As you say though, I’ve always got my phone for tethering.

  • As part of my order from Geek, I bought two 64GB pen drives for ยฃ1 each. Like the 2TB drive, I didn’t really expect them to work, but thought it was worth a cheap gamble. They arrived today, so I plugged them in to test them.

    First things first, they showed up as 59.4MB. No problem, my other drives lose about 4MB due to formatting too. Wait,…[Read more]

    Sorry it’s a bit late.

    Sorry to ask another question, but do you know why it’s got a USB connector? I would have thought that everything went through the PCIe slot?

  • Tippon replied to the topic Free Games in the forum Software Talk 4 days, 11 hours ago

    Possibly free games…

    I had the usual Humble Bundle email through today, and it said that some games were free for a short time for subscribers. It wasn’t too clear whether it meant newsletter subscribers, or the $12 a month Humble Bundle subscribers. I tried downloading one of the games anyway, and it worked. I don’t know if they mean that…[Read more]

    Thanks Dave ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was a bit confused looking at these, as I wasn’t sure if they were just PCIe adaptors, or if they had the card too. My knowledge has basically disappeared over the last few years.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a cheap wireless ac card please? I’m looking for either PCI or PCI Express x1.

    I’ve got my computer linked through a USB card now, but every so often everything slows down, as if the USB bus is saturated while I’m transferring files. I also want to put one in my media server so that it can move out of the…[Read more]

  • Wave looks brilliant. Thanks for the link Dave ๐Ÿ™‚

    The festival I help with wants to send out invoices to the venues just to cover our backs, so I was going to knock some up in Word. I’ve just done a test invoice for my photography business that I never got around to starting, and it took a few minutes. It looks great too, very professional.

    Thanks Wasbit ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve had the refund from Wish. I used their contact form to message them a few days ago, and explained that it was a fake drive. The next day (10th) I had an email back saying a refund could take a few days, with no dispute at all. That email was sent on the 10th at 04:23. I had an email from Paypal on the 10th at 04:25 saying…[Read more]

  • I’ve just tried to install the Android app, and it won’t install on the Honor 9 or the OnePlus One. It will go on the Alba 8in though (Argos tablet).

     

    EDIT: I’m not sure about this one. You have to turn on the allow less secure apps option if you want to use a Gmail based email address, and the Android app will only use landscape, which is a…[Read more]

    I bought a chinese 10″ tablet a few years ago, and ended up just using it to read comics, and have just bought a 2nd hand 8″ Argos special for ยฃ20 to put the motorbike manuals on in the garage. I’m finding that it’s a lovely size for me though. It’s a bit small for comics, but because it fits in my hand so nicely, I’m finding it better to use for…[Read more]

    Surprise surprise, it got 5% through copying and failed. The device malfunctioned and is not recognised by Windows. I’m going to try it on the laptop just to rule out a brand new and really coincidental problem with my computer ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Let’s see how good their returns policy really is…

  • Tippon replied to the topic Geek / Wish shopping app in the forum Electrical 1 week, 4 days ago

    The 2TB flash drive has arrived. I’ve tried two burn in programs to test the drive, but one did next to nothing, and the other crashed. I’m copying a load of music and videos onto the drive instead, but it’s sloooooow!
