Cutting the ADSL ball and chain by Norm Why[_2_]
Hi, I have been able to improve Youtube and network performance by using tethering on my cheap LG K4 and cheap mobile data from a DIY mobile network. Bytes cost $0. It is the supply chain markup, labor costs and monopoly that makes the price high. I have been on a consumer strike with my ADSL...

Hair-trigger keyboards? by Peter Jason
Hi, where can I find keyboards with heavy keys that do not go off with the slightest touch? I make too many mistakes by just brushing over the keys by mistake. Is there a special keyword for searching for these heavier keys? I'm used to the old typewriter keys.

Need Louder Sound by [email protected]
I want to learn some Chinese, but find these old ears cannot hear the audio very well at https://chinesecharacteraday.com/one-word-a-day/ at least. All I have is an old set of earphones plugged to audio on a W10 PC. Even at max audio. The phones have no volume control of course.

Cables Reproducing? by John McGaw
It has to be that these things are breeding. There used to be a joking theory that wire coat hangers were reproducing and trying to take over the world but it seems that computer cables are in the game now. Do you find that your stock of cables is expanding without your knowledge? I just looked...

External Backup? by [email protected]
I have had bad luck with portable USB storage. Such as the small 'sticks', and larger hard drives. I have had them all fail on me. I am tired of it. I think I wud do better if I used portable USB storage with its own 110v power supply (adapter). I have had a few in the past, and they never...
