After rearranging the furniture a bit, and moving away from the Ethernet socket, I just tried to use my PC's inbuilt Wi-Fi for the first time. Apparently it's defective. This poses two problems: In the first case I have no idea whether it was DOA or whether it subsequently failed, and secondly given that it's about 4 years old at this point I'm sure that the retailer wouldn't play ball in any case.

 

I think the easiest solution would be to put everything back how it was and go back to a cable!

Lime scooters left parked haphazardly blocking footpaths. An able bodied person can deal with them (personally I'd put them in a rubbish bin) but someone in a wheelchair or mobility scooter isn't going to  be able to move the Lime easily.

MicroSD slots, in particular when used in car radios, behind a little flap.

I've managed to lose two, between the lack of light, awkward handling, and many nooks and crannies when dropped.

If you're over 20, find someone under 20 to install it.

Sure you are not just missing the antennas from it?

Or just get a USB wifi adapter.

It's not seeing the interface itself.

That's a thought!

I use it on my desktop PC. HAve I have a TP-Link adapter and the link connection is 1.3 Gbps. I get around 400 Mbps on speedtests - for day to day is more than enough. If I need something without contention I just plug a cable...

Why on earth do companies feel the need to randomly rename things? Sprite Zero is now apparently "No Sugar Lemon-Lime Sprite" (what a mouthful!).

Strangely, I find its quite often associated with a reduction in size/volume/weight.

Stupid prescription instructions: "Protect yourself from too much sunlight". So how much is too much? Stay indoors all the time? Can I walk to the mailbox? Do I need hazmat gear? This is worse than no instruction at all.

 

"Limit alcohol". Great, more pharmaceutical precision. What the hell does that mean? One glass of wine? Three? None? Once a week? Every day? What idiot comes up with this stuff?

Probably to bring it in line with coke and its no sugar branding when they have moved to a different sweetner. Also there are different sprite flavours in the rest of the world so probably standardizing on the branding.

 

Did they mess the recipie up like they did with coke no sugar? Sprite is normally horrible anyway so I wouldnt know.

I was taking some anti-migraine pills that said the same thing. I basically work outside most of the day, so I'm pretty covered up anyway!
