    My upload speed is still the same more or less. I was on 100/10, but should now be 100/100. Was it supposed to have been changed yet?

    Slow/Closed Combustion Fireplace: is it worth it?

    Absolutely true about the kids. My wife and I had a kid after I installed the fireplace. You need to keep a constant eye on them or they'll try to melt themselves against the glass. My little one dragged a stuffed toy over the glass when my wife wasn't watching him, melted the hair off the toy...

    The ULTIMATE Watercooler Thread

    1 kibi = 1,024 1 kilo = 1,000 This has been sorted out more than a decade ago. Most of us just never caught on.

    Will the pandemic spread just as fast after lockdown?

    You are correct. If people don't follow it, then there's no point. I think we can agree then that if it was followed and enforced correctly, it would work. You're saying we're not, so it won't work. The problem isn't the concept of a lock down, it's the attitude of the people. Does that sound...

    Will the pandemic spread just as fast after lockdown?

    I don't think she can tell you right now. It's another measure to slow the rate of infection, how effective it is depends on a lot of factors.
