    Coronavirus

    A tale of both contrast and similarity here, Doug. We too have had a leadership vacuum at national level, but at least it's been a genuine vacuum, a lack of leadership, not downright evil destructive stuff in the mould of Trump and Bolsonaro. The state leaders, however, have been very good...

    Coronavirus

    Our experience here is that people have generally relaxed, but in the main retain courtesy and reasonable distancing habits. A minority - nearly all young - are lax about it, and a few are just poxheads. But only a few. The really weird thing is that it is the NSW government which is carrying...

    Coronavirus

    Getting on just fine thankyou Handy. We are living in Tasmania now. In the Huon Valley, which we have always liked. There is a page of pictures of the district here: http://tannin.net.au/browsestate.php?state=7&substate=3 - not all from the Huon Valley, but most are. You'll get the idea.

    Coronavirus

    I reckon Trump's doctor - who will be perfectly well aware that he has to do whatever Trump says or be yet another White House sacking - will have indeed supplied the anti-malaria drug, but not being completely stupid, he will have had someone fix him up with a special supply of, say, 2mg...

    Coronavirus

    Living on 20 acres near Ranelagh, DB, five minutes out of Huonville. Been here for about a year. Our Coronavirus strategy is to stay at home seeing practically no-one and going out as little as possible - i.e., pretty much life as usual. :)

    Netgear Arlo = bugs, bugs, and more bugs

    That's worth following up, Clocker, and is a very kind offer. I probably won't have the opportunity t o do so for a little while though. (Retired. Yep. Nothing to do all day? Nope. It doesn't work like that. :) ) Meanwhile. we have yet another spectacular Arlo failure to deal with. My credit...

    Netgear Arlo = bugs, bugs, and more bugs

    Cheers Clocker. No, I'm on NBN Fibre, the gold standard of connections. After a lot more mucking about, Arlo still doesn't work. It's a disaster. It is now sending notifications again, but only sometimes, and they only work when you wake up your phone. And the can't-cancel bug is back. So I...

    Netgear Arlo = bugs, bugs, and more bugs

    We bought a Netgear Arlo security camera system the other week. The good news: the machinery is outstanding. Small, neat, beautifully engineered. Expensive, but I've never minded paying for class. Great battery life, very well thought out. The bad news: the associated app and website aren't...

    dSLR thread

    I would rather like 600/4 III, but I'm not sure I want to sell my house just yet.

    SMS - phone, tablet & desktop all-in-one?

    Any recommendations for an app to let me use any of three devices [Android phone, Androit tablet, Windows 8.1 computer] to read and send texts? There seems to be lots of them, but all with diffrrent features and (presumably) different gotchas.

    dSLR thread

    My word, Tannin is grumpy today, isn't he! Besides, he should realise that most of his readers ... yes, both of them ... are Americans who probably won't get the "haitch" thing. So far as I know, that's an Australia-only phenomenon (not saying "haitch, poorly-spoken English people say "haitch"...

    Proposal for a tipbot system using cryptocurreny

    Sigh. It's sort of like money, except that it doesn't exist or have any actual value and nobody uses it. At least not for anything worth mentioning other than speculation, gambling, bribery, drugs, and crime.

    Proposal for a tipbot system using cryptocurreny

    It's not even as if the thread was current, it's years and years out of date.

    Proposal for a tipbot system using cryptocurreny

    Tannin, you are hopeless. What you wrote has got practically nothing to do with what Doug proposed. It was just an excuse for an off-topic rant.

    LED flashlights

    We wound up getting a couple of Zebralamps, selecting therm rather than several others for reasons now forgotten. Belinda is happy with hers. Tannin's, however, is useless. It has yet to do any useful work at all. ...... This is because he put it somewhere apparently sensible until needed -...
