    Same for me. I tried two FNB cards now. Both rejected.

    Where to buy a Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition

    Same for me. I have no need for a laptop bigger than 13”. I currently have a Touch Bar MacBook Pro 13” and it’s more than sufficient. It can also run Ubuntu 20.04 but there’s the odd issue with power management that I still have to fix.

    Where to buy a Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition

    F1 2020 season discussion and chat.

    That’s not new. Mansell did that all the time in his Williams-Honda by pressing the boost button when he needed to overtake. Strangely though, that’s been conveniently forgotten. Other forms of Motorsport use various forms of overtaking assistance but for whatever reason, it’s considered...

    F1 2020 season discussion and chat.

    Agreed. I’ve been watching F1 for years and years and years and there’s always comments about processional races and that we must bring back overtaking but I can’t remember when this gold age of overtaking actually happened. Prost and Senna used to qualify up front, take the lead and vanished...
