  1. Anyone want to earn a few extra ££

    Thanks for the termanology help. What bugs me most was i used to work at a place that had them hanging around everywhere and could have lifted a good few if i had thought about it, the one you mention i can get for £105 new and second hand for £80, so given there is not much difference price wise i'd just buy new if i have to, but the Scottish in me always wants a deal from somewhere.

  2. I'm in the market for a cheap (ish) fluke multimeter? The prices they go for on fleabay are a joke, it does not hve to be new in fact i'm hapopy with second hand, maybe a spare one at work is kicking around..... I have no need for manual or box or even leads, it's just i'm trying to learn a wee bit more about electrics and having a cheap MM is just not going to cut it. Given i don't know the right termanology please bear with me, my cheapo MM has, hell uploaded pic to stop any misunderstanding, so this is what i have and i want one where you just swith to volts and it will give a reading be that 1.5 or 240v no messting about with switching dials etc, so anyone help with right termanology for what i'm after or even better a MM?

  3. Anyone have FTTP?

    Yea this has been a nightmare for me for years, where i live in London's Docklands means most of us round here are on Exchange Only (EO) lines which means copper goes from out home direct into the exchange itself and our best speed has been about 4mbits, I took the bull by th horns about a year ago and invested in some new hardware that would allow me to hook up to a 4G based ISP called Relish.net which can give me speeds of 30mbits during early hours of the day but normally about 10mbit, all fine you might say, but no we now have a major develoment work going on which means a 11 story block of flats will be going up bang in my way of the cell site and hitting my speed for six as i will lose line of sight, no green cabinets round our way so FTTC is out, the block of flats next to me have hyperoptic and thier 1GB service but will not do our block as my landlord said they could not put there kit in our flats so that route is out for now however if we can get 5 more people they will supply us but i have already done the round and can't get anyone else to sign up. So i'm well and truly fooked.... However I have been very lucky and been able to get in touch with someone very high up within OpenReach (OR) and put case to them and after doing a site survey they have agreed that FTTP is an option for me and they will do it for me and it should be live by mid Dec and then we come to the problem of an ISP, I cannot see the point is have this speed and having a download limit put on me so all i will want is unlimited downloads and i'd be happy with 50mbit and given so few ISP's offer this option the price is not cheap. I'm guessing i might have to have FTTP installed and wait till i get the offer of a good deal. All1
  4. Anyone have FTTP?

    Yea BT as an ISP do FTTP (to the home) but from my digging it's less then half a dozen ISP's that do it and off course this means prices are high and some even cap you a 50GB, i mean you could do that in a couple of hours All1
  5. Anyone have FTTP?

    Most get FTTC which is fibre to the cabinet then copper wire to your home FTTP is fibre straight from the exchange into your home supposed to be much faster as no copper is used but also fewer ISP touch it, and for that reason price seems to be a wee bit expensive All1
  6. Anyone have FTTP?

    Long story short, i have been in contact with someone in OpenReach (OR) and have had site survey done and been told i can have FTTP by the end of Dec this year, which i thought was great news however i have now been looking at ISP deals and it seems there is only a handfull of ISP's that offer a FTTP product, so does anyone have FTTP a home? If so what ISP & deal do you have? All I want is unlimted downloads.. All1

  13. Fire Extinguisher... What class

    That is what is putting me of the powder ones i had read some horror stories about tv's/hi-fi being screwed even though they were not in the fire, Thanks DJ mind made up CO2 it is, how long can i expect the shelf life to be, and when the end comes is it best just to throw away and buy a new one?

  14. Anyone ever claimed back PPI?

    I have been toying with the idea for sometime, however mine and the wives financial affairs are not straight forward, and i'm in 2 minds what to do. I know i can get money of some stuff myself but others are going to be a lot of work for me to get anything back and i guess 70% of something is better then 100% of nothing. All1
