  1. BT own plusnet. They use xactly the same infrastructure, switches. poles, wires, everything but are 5000% better at customer service/sorting out problems. Cheaper too. BT will not let them sell/have access to FTTP but for FTTC and ADSL they are highly reccommended. Errr NO. 5G uses an 'air interface' which apart from adding delay (latency) also puts several more 'hops' into the mix. Most BSC's (the mux that looks at several towers) also deploy a plesiochronous doppler buffer which ensures the data leaving the BSC is timed the same as that coming in, which adds more del
  2. Yes its wonderful. I bought a new tin last year and am so dissapointed.
  3. Still do, I add mine to boiling water around 50:50 and swab the barrels of my shotguns. It is also good for cleaning the HMR crud off the moderators insides. Thats what old toothbrushes are for
  4. Royal Lochnagar is good, but harsh compared to the likes of Mannochmore and Ben Rinnes. Speyburn is similar to Royal Lochnagar but still smoother as are they are from the Flora and Fauna range. They are all Diagio whiskys too so principly used in thier blends. The OP asked about Irish Whiskey, of which I know little. I think most of the good stuff is only available in Ireland with only the supermarket casks getting across the border. Teeling and Fercullen are pretty good I recall.
  5. Have a look at FARMSTREAM linky
  6. Whiskey is Irish, Whisky is Scottish. Smokey Whisky = Ledaig 18, Glenturret 10 or Port Charlotte 10. Speyside (not smokey) Dailuaine 16, Ben Rinnes or Mannochmore. As mentioned Auchentoshan is (like Irish Whiskey) triple distilled, the Three Wood is very good, much better (IMO) than the American Oak. The online 'Masters of Malt' shop is good.
  7. If you have a USB to USB bridging cable you can plug one end into each PC effectively joining/networking them together. Using an App/software (ie 'Transfer MyPC USB' or by running devmgmt.msc) you can then move all of your data, files, programs, eMails etc etc from the old pc to the new one. There are several flavours of software to do this, most cost money some are 'bundled' with a new pc.
  8. Mine certainly is thank you.... Perhaps you could edit the title of this thread and add "SOLD" at the end ?
  9. Seat arrived. Excellent all round. Thanks
  10. i'll have the seat ... pm inbound
  11. Defender 90, a late 80's early 90's 200 or 300tdi. A hard top van, windows and roof lights leak .... as @Centrepinsays "You may need to tinker with Landies to keep them running,but at least parts are available and cheap." Unfortunately you will not get a reasonable one for your £4K budget
  12. What @Ultrastusaid.. 👍 The deposit left in a moderator is both caustic and hygrscopic which means it absorbs water and creates acids, both of which attack the steel of the barrel. This oxidisation will deform the crown and attack the bore and end of your steel barrel, over time. You should never leave the moderator on the gun. Interestingly an intenally dirty moderator is quieter than a clean one. Typically any loose deposites will exit the can with the expanding gasses and as many have an alloy construction they are not damaged/erroded in the same way the barrel/crown is.
