    We went down to Gibraltar point once just to find it with the intention of going again but haven’t made it back there. This time of year would be good to get down there with the seals pupping or pupped as the case may be. We once left Grimsby on the way in after a greasy spoon brekkie and the satnav took us the scenic route (little back…[Read more]

    It depends on what games he wants to play I suspect it will play some games at low to medium settings ok as its on board but will struggle with other games on these settings. It all comes down to what he wants to play and the amount of eye candy he wants. You see so many pcs advertised with gt710 / gt720 graphics cards as gaming pcs which is again…[Read more]

    Bob have you tried through computer management in administrative tools then disk management that normally shows the partitions in use and lets you delete the others. I once had to do it through cmd line after I had established the ones that weren’t needed as disk management wouldn’t do it but the cmd line way worked.

  • Blacklion in some cases the green energy from the turbines is doing harm they are killing more birds than humans do. But they are no where near as bad as domestic cats when it comes to killing birds. I saw a program once about the turbines and birds there where a few videos showing some birds of prey meeting the reaper not nice to see these where…[Read more]

    I’ve had a little look around and a few people seem to recommend the seagate hdds as being good for xbox. A trip down to currys to have a look at them at the weekend may be in order. I really need to catch up on tech.

    Cheers guys

  • Hi Guys

    Can any of you gamer types recommend a cheap 1TB external for my lads xbox one. I am way behind in whats good and what is not. You see bus powered ones (2.5 inch I presume) recommended by some and the bigger external powered 3.5 full fat drives by others. I would of thought the 3.5″ drives would be better as they spin faster assuming they…[Read more]

    Just to let you know she ordered the HP one same model as above but without the camera(the other sold). At least she will be able to delete them spam emails about recording her watching porn etc in confidence that’s if she gets any.

    Thanks again
