Teccie (Windows 10) wifi help please
at 19:07 20 Jan 2020

My ageing techie-head is struggling with this one, sorry, bit boring for non-techies:

Windows 10 laptop, had it for a couple of years, no problems uptil now. Using it this morning, suddenly lose the internet connection, no problem I thought just reboot the router, that usually works.

It didn't, so tried restarting router again, still nothing. Checked my phone and a tablet, they're both still connected to internet and working OK.

Plugged an ethernet cable from router to laptop, that's working fine too, so must be something wrong on the laptop.

Checked laptop, it's telling me there are 'no wireless adapters' on this device - strange. Checked Event Log, no errors there. Checked hardware devices, wireless adapter is in the list and showing up as being OK.

Didn't want to waste too much time on it, so popped out to Argos and bought a USB wireless adapter, came back home, plugged it in, and it's working fine - in fact it's faster than the built-in adapter!

Not a big deal, as I'm up and running with the USB device, just a bit weird why the built-in wifi adapter just stopped working, but Windows still thinks it's OK, anyone had this before?

Do managers contracts have cooling off periods in them?

You know, like with timeshares or double-glazing, so when you've signed one but later realise how stupid you've been, or that you've been duped, there's still a chance you can get out of it.

Just asking for a friend, lets call him Marcus.

Can we get promoted by just beating the bottom 10 or 12 teams?
at 22:00 21 Dec 2019

Clearly we have an issue with not being able to beat any of the better teams in this league, but there are 10 or 12 pretty poor teams, most of which we have beaten once already.

As much as I would be happy with a different manager, as Lambert clearly isn't able to get the best out of a decent bunch of players at this level, but I really don't think ME is likely to sack him unless we drop out of the top 6.

Of course we'd need to finish top 2 to avoid the inevitable defeat in the POs, probably need 16 wins to get us over 80 points, so I guess I've answered my own question......no.

Scary. What are we doing to this planet?

Very informative program, certainly makes me want to eat less meat. Worth seeing on the iplayer if you're interested in this kind of thing.

Goal line technology
at 12:28 24 Nov 2019

I know it's not used in leagues 1 & 2, but we have it, don't we, or has it simply been taken away until we're back in the Championship, or leagues 1 & 2 decide to adopt it?

Serious question, just wondered why, if the club owned the actual system, that they can't/don't operate it, and use the 'evidence' in the match highlights, so it would at least clear up disputed goals (not that it would help of course!). Even on here fans can't agree if it should have been a goal or not yesterday.

I guess there's a financial cost to operating it as well.

If you're not, good. It's hard to watch, wish I hadn't started it now.

It's covering Chinas '1 child policy' and how it was implemented.

Will we get more points than Liverpool?
at 20:07 10 Nov 2019

Just had a bet with my son, that we will end up with more points than Liverpool at the end of the season.

I reckon I'm on pretty safe ground to take his tenner, after all we have an extra 6 games!

He reckons Lpool will get 100 points, I'm going for 94 for us, 90 for them.

I've jinxed us now, haven't I...

Tabletop cooler spares/repairs
at 14:50 28 Oct 2019

Sorry people, bit of a boring one, but thought I'd see if someone on here could help.

Got a Russell Hobbs tabletop cooler (small 'fridge' in other words) that went 'pop' when I switched it on a few days ago.

Being the resourceful type, not wanting to just dump it at the local recycling centre, I thought I'd try and fix it, but can't find anywhere on-line that sells the internal parts. There's just a circuit board and fan inside when you open up the back. I called the product helpline, but they don't supply those parts, they suggested espares, partmaster, ebay, but none of them stock either part.

A new one is £75, so no big deal (it's a business expense anyway), but I find it really annoying that I can't just replace a simple, cheap part rather than dumping the whole thing.

Anyone got any ideas?
