ive been very lucky. I have owned a few android phones, all of them are still working.

galaxy s2, still running as a music player and radio (tune in radio pro), it lives in the garden shed and is charged via solar battery bank.

galaxy note 3. runs just fine and is a media player connected via HDMI to a tv in our study room. runs kodi (ironically using an android remote control)

moto 'something'. daughters phone. looks like its been in the wars and works fine.

my note 3. typing on it now. screen is in great condition, case has many cracks and dents, needs to live in a flip wallet as the battery bay cover is very badly damaged. has been dropped many times, used as baby teether, hammer, object of fruatration etc. pen works fine for daily use too, have gone through 2 nibs and 2 batteries.

galaxy s8. paetners phone. only 9 months old and works fine.

All have been flashed with other roms and have been rooted. Both our old iphones died with various faults. one switched off after apple logo, the other gets past apple logo and sits on a messed up screen.

thing is, if you dont have accounts or logins then who cares? http is fine if you have no data to send to a site. if all you are doing is receiving non sensitive stuff then https isnt mandatory.

hmmm. as a kid i was once caught doing the top of stairs thing. i wasnt as young as those photoshops but i was certainly about 2. i used to love climbing, still do. I took my daughters rock scrambling and climbing from about 6 years old, they too love climbing and they are in their late teens....

we took some seriously scary pictures on various rocks. teachers didnt believe the places they used to go when they were young.

nicad and lead acid can last a very long time as long as they dont deep discharge or overheat and vent. talk to model enthusiasts and they will tell you how to treat nicads so they last a loooong time.

liion basically eat themselves when charging and discharging so will always have a lower life. charge too fast and overheat and they will eat themselves faster having lower cap and life.

I haven't used SLI since running 1024x768 on my voodoo 2 pair (king of the hill back then!). How does SLI stack up on older cards? I have a 960 and can pick up another cheap 960. My mobo (surprisingly) does have 2 slots so I can theoretically SLI them, im sure my PSU can support both too.

Is it worth bothering though? I know that ideally a new GFX would be preferable, but if you already have an old card and can pick up a cheap identical one, would it be worthwhile doing so?

the CO2 isnt so much for the beer itself, it is for the cleaning of pipes, deoxygenationnof barrels, pressurising delivery etc. The product itself makes CO2 for the beer, its the ancilliary stuff that needs CO2

cask ale hand pumped is unaffected of course

no, they spent FAR more on lawyers filing the case in the first place. And nothing on fixing servers.

there is a gym and pokestop reachable from my daughters flat. It was fun in the early days of pokemon go she said as she could just keep hold of the gym almost permanently when she was at home. She never spent the coins either as there wasnt a point in doing so.

i just botted to prove you could play via bot (no gym battles so i wouldnt affect others)

this is why people moan about shitty news, report on fans that might be riddled with spyware then

"None of the Singapore fans have yet been forensically examined by security experts, but they could be loaded with all manner of technology for scouring hard drives and surroundings for data."

so basically it is a crappy opinion job.

team fortress 2? diablo 3? star craft 2? Counter strike?

None of those started strong and plummeted.

I think you're underestimating how strong those were to start, as well as how few 6,000 actually is. Also, I'm off by a factor of 10 - by the end of the first month, it was 600.

Star trek online and World of Tanks. Both those tanked in the first years they ran. STO went F2P and picked up massively. World of Tanks peaked a few years back but was (still is) large.

the fix i did was right click on the the exe and choose compatibility mode. There were fan fixes (all it did was full screen borderless window) in the early days as this slowed the game down and made it jittery. modern PCs are fast enough not to need this. at least my PC was pc anyway.
