    Disc Golf

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disc_golf Who has NOT ever thrown a frisbee? Walk somewhere and throw frisbees you can pick up on your way and throw them again - until you hit a target. Simples. After I stopped playing hockey as a teenager, I did little as far as organized sport goes. I tried...

    The Warning System

    Next to the Staff turnover last year, the largest change we've had is in how we apply and manage warnings. In the old days, it was by manually slapping a huge banner on a user's account, writing it up and then manually removing it when the time came. The new approach is simpler and more...

It has been pointed out that lengthy articles can be onerous and lengthy to read/digest when perhaps only a few lines are relevant. Some users just skip on by, which can...

    The Woodworking Thread

    I didn't want to call it "art" or "craft" in the title. I'm in the midst of prepping to build my workshop. I have the space, 1.5 car garage on the new house. Still have to iron out a treaty between the wife and I over some space usage  ;D but should have ample room to get done what I want to...

    Calling the Geeks!

    Hiya, So I want to connect an external HD to my wireless system in the house. Unfortunately, the rental Arris modem I have, while it does have a USB connection, comes with this disabled, so I am hooped on that front. But hark, I have my old D Link router just sitting here, a 655 model, and...

    GoPro Cameras

    Right, I am in the market for a GoPro and wanted to put it out to the masses to see what feedback I can get on what I think I have learned. I am pretty sure that the 3+ is what I am going to go with. Newer technology, from what I can tell, but not the flashiest of what's available. I am keen...

    Two RAF Tornadoes crash in Moray Firth

    This has been leading the news over here, naturally. The news this morning is saying that they are not in the air again searching because of fog and they are also admitting the likelihood of finding further survivors might be limited due to pilots not wearing survival suits at this time of...

    Sad News for those who have done time in Aldershot....

    WHY WON'T THE CF HIRE ME????

    The following advice is said in the most gentle tone possible I believe that we are, at least for this decade, in some pretty unprecedented times as far as recruiting for the CF goes. Fewer openings and more applicants makes for big competition. Many closed trades lead to loads of questions...

    iPod Help

    I've got an iPod Classic, 160 gig, that I purchased a little over a year ago (thus not being under Apple's warranty) and the bloody thing will not turn on, not even a flash. The other day I retrieved it for the first time in about a month and found it stone dead. I plugged it in and charged it...
