    How demanding should I be

    Had a canopy fitted yesterday and the light inside the canopy stopped working within a day. Obviously I need to get them to fix it, but getting to Beekman requires me to take time off from work and spend hours waiting around for them to fix it. Would I be unreasonable to expect them to send...

    Raztech branded products, potential fire hazard?

    Bought a Raztech displayport to hdmi adapter that doesn't work, tried multiple screens/pc's/hdmi cables, same result. Adapter also gets very hot within seconds, to the point where I imagine it would become dangerous. I suspect they are just reselling crappy china town quality items under their...

    Should I get a wall cabinet?

    I've got a bunch of things on my desk (routers, mini pc, raspberry pi, switch etc) that I'd like to get off it. None of it is rack mountable. I was thinking though that the neatest would be to maybe get a 6u cabinet and put it up on the wall with a shelf or two. Then at least 90% of the cabling...

    Anyone have the jojo booster pump?

    This one: If yes, what is the pressure like on yours? The pamphlet says it does 3.6bar of pressure, but I seem to get no more than 1.5 and that's with using their connection kit pictured above. Anyone's experience differ?

    So out of interest I looked up the word racism on a few dictionaries and realised something I never thought of. Racism is the belief in the superiority of one race over another, which often results in discrimination and prejudice towards people based on their race or ethnicity. Based on this...

    Anyone using GSuite for personal/home domain?

    I've been using GSuite for a couple of years now, have always had my own domain so thought heck - may as well use GSuite so I can get a 'nice' email address and continue using Gmail interface. I'm so tied into it, but I'm considering getting rid of GSuite. Because it is supposed to be targeted...

    What's the word

    When someone does a survey and they maybe only ask like 10 people, then you say it's a limited [subset/group/???] I feel like there's a different way of phrasing this, or a word that's escaping me right now.
