  1. my last router was TP-link router Archer and was great on the wifi coverage, i now have a gaming router but that's expensive, only got as my son was mad on gaming and sorted a lot of issues. not sure what to recommend, you need one to go with your connection, gigabit ports, Dual band wifi speeds and make sure its got a good cpu to keep up with all your devices and connections. Always best to compare and review routers for the best combination of features
  2. There are so many bikes on the road at the moment, there's a few who think they own the road. While driving in the country i came across, a group of cyclists who where cycling 3 a breast, usually two side by side is bad enough to get past but 3 is taking it to far. The recent complains about the electric scooters, have you seen how fast some of the battery powered bikes go πŸ€₯
  3. Don't think any one can take Boris serious, with all his clowning around πŸ˜€. Having more luck with the Olympics, the 13 year old skateboarder done well
  4. Sadly missed, i still miss his banter, especially his playful comment towards Sir Zorro πŸ˜€ RIP Alloneword a year gone past already, it is true the older you get the faster time goes by. enjoy it while you can.
  5. typical πŸ˜€ new roads just laid and few weeks later they dig a whole right i the centre and them do a crap job of patching it up......doh

  8. good to hear from you Dave, i did notice you weren't about as some are regulars here each day. sorry to hear your health is worse at the moment, hope that back pain gets easier for you. That makes my internet speed looks like i am crawling along, only 150 here. When i first moved in 6 years ago it was just 2mbps until the upgraded the local cabinet to fibre. real pain to do anything and used to borrow others connections to down load stuff😁 Take care Gaz

    I hope your son recovers quickly and hopefully has not passed the infection on to you Dave. All the luck in the world to you both. my son and his partner have had covid twice now, my sons partner works in a nursing home and that's where she caught it from. nine people died from covid at the home. The residence and staff are now tested weekly and that seems to have cured the issues they were having with covid and no more deaths so far. My brother-in-laws nephew died of covid, only 49. I
  16. Happy new year to you all
  17. Got this sent to me, thought i would share it here 😁 TOOLS EXPLAINED DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh*t' DROP SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short. PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters. BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs. HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes. VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand. OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting on fire various flammable objects in your shop. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race. TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity. HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper. BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge. TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect. PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads. STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms. PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part. HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to make hoses too short. HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit. UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use. ADJUSTABLE WRENCH: aka "Another hammer", aka "the Swedish Nut Lathe", aka "Crescent Wrench". Commonly used as a one size fits all wrench, usually results in rounding off nut heads before the use of pliers. Will randomly adjust size between bolts, resulting in busted buckles, curse words, and multiple threats to any inanimate objects within the immediate vicinity. Son of a bitch TOOL: Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'Son of a bitch' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.
  18. I have always liked black and white photos
  19. Looks like the 1960`s didn't realize you was that old Colin 😁 😁
  20. This will be the first xmas with just the two of us, we had booked to go out for lunch boxing day but with the covid restrictions announced today the restaurant will be closed. Hope you all have the best Christmas and sure will be a different one this year. Will also raise a glass to All1 i miss his cheeky comments to Zorro. 😁
  21. She passed away peacefully at 8.35pm on Thursday at a London care home with her husband Scott Mitchell by her side. She died from Alzheimer's aged 83, such a cruel disease. I remember her mostly from all the carry on films, RIP Barbara

    i forgot to reset my time on on my badge and got a Β£60 ticket, parked at 10am in morning and badge set at 2 . They tried to say my car was parked from 2am and only allowed 3 hours, i appealed it and pointed out that it was a mistake and if the warden would have looked at where i was parked it was only open from 8am so impossible to park at 2am. They let me off with a warning. who remembers the stupid mobile cameras, i got loads of tickets as they always took a pictures of the rear of the car and failed to look at the front where my badge was displayed. After complaining I managed to get my car reg plate white listed in there database so i didn't get any more tickets sent out.
  23. my thought will be with him on that morning, thank you for letting us know. my sincere condolences to his family and friends, rest in peace Morgan
