  1. hope you are all well and safe, just a quick one im trying to access a website and it keeps geolocationg the site to the same region as my VPN even though all geolocation settings are off in my browsers and im entering the en-gb extention in the site yet it is 404ing or just looping back to the fr-ch version. is there a way to circumvent this entirely or is it getting harder and harder to avoid this form of tracking? cheers i dispise geolocation tracking.

    its the only laptop that has the issue, anyother laptop that has been in this house in the past or that is brought here connects no issue and stays(ed) connected intil it was manually disconnected. i dont know what you are angling to get, but im not super super techy techy when it comes to laptops, i dont know whats exactly on that pcb other than what the system tells me and im not opening the damn thing up there is no need to do that. its not a router issue as nothing else has this problem, the channels have no traffic except mine on them, just this 1 laptop. so to that extent its most likely a software setting in win 10 somewhere thats the issue.

    Hi im having an issue with my laptop. the wifi periodically and randomly disconnects. i have clicked the connect automatically button and reconnected it many many times but the setting does not hold for longer than a few days. the laptop is about 2 years old and win 10 up-to date. is there somthing im missing or is it a deeper issue? its been going on for several months. Cheers Tyd ~
  5. UK currencey about £160/£170
  6. no no we use £GBP just thought it would be easier for the vast majority of the community to use $usd as that seems to be what most people here use. The battery wasnt bad until recently, now it barely holds 2 days charge. it was a vast improvement on my previous phone which was also a sony. its been quite reliable over the years, well travelled, dropped numerous times before its fist screen shatter, ok its not imperative to stay with sony its just prefered.
  7. apart from the iphone 4 (hated it) and an alcatel back in the late 90's ive always used a sony, so familiarity i suppose yeah. what would be a good android brand these days?
  8. just finished this vid, am looking to upgrade my z3 as the screen keeps coming out and theres only so many times you can justify the repair cost at the local "repair" store. so im having a toss up between the xperia 10 and the L3, which would be the better option? mid range is fine. im leaning towards teh L3 tbh. heres the link for it https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Xperia-5-7-Inch-Smartphone-Black/dp/B07NWDS2WG/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3DNVQRTBW46P9&keywords=sony+xperia+l3+phone&qid=1579203319&sprefix=sony+xperia+l3%2Caps%2C500&sr=8-5 im admitedly not upto date on the various snap dragons and phone specs. but id like to stick with sony preferably. Cheers all
  9. so im looking for a new mouse as the 2012 naga i got has been bust for a long time(since bought) but didnt realise it untill it was too late sadly. im finally starting to give into getting a new one and am looking at the ROG-Spatha, does anyone have it or know if its any good? im also looking for a high capacity external hdd, maybe 4 or 5 tb, any suggestions? thanks
  10.

Cheers

    its for a mix of everything really like Oshino's, and to see if i can do it.
  12. Hi, Im thinking of building a server here at home, is it a good idea? or just stick to a tower and lappy? Cheers
  13. Hi, Is it worth ordering anything from the store IF you dont live in the rupublic of Canadia or the US? i was going to order the lanyards thinking why not put them in an envelope and off they go, but its 8 canadian rupees for shipping... maybe i guess its not worth it for 1 or 2 items but should make a large order? that asked is that worth it as then i have to deal with customs and import on the UK side of things. hmmm i dont suppose LTT store will mark and parcel as a "Gift"? any thoughts?
