I went with Zwift, I did consider bkool but it didn't officially support my trainer and I didn't like that I had to give them my CC details just to sign up. I mostly like it although I find connectivity can be a bit rubbish at times which can get really irritating. Even though every other device can...

I've always liked the idea of rollers because you have to actually ride the bike rather than it being static and when I found there were smart rollers I wanted to give them a go but just not in stock. I was going to buy a fixed trainer but I found there were issues with the brake caliper and deraill...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog, You should have given me a shout Chris as I'm just in Inverness. I'm obviously biased about the Highlands but I've always loved it here and missed it when I moved away as I think there's a good balance of facilities in Inverness and round about but you can easily escape and great countrys...

Windows Mobile/Phone discussion

It's a shame the way things went and I feel some of the Nokia phones didn't get the credit they were due. I thought the Nokia 925 was a really nice design that looked great, felt good in the hand and it was durable as well. I'm currently using a Galaxy Note 9 and I've just no idea why on earth they ...

Interesting to look back at my last reply here. It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride with my thyroid since around three weeks after the diagnosis I managed to get back on the bike although slow then had my first scheduled blood test and my thyroid level went from over the double the amount it should...

Dear Blog V XV - the blog strikes back

Dear Blog, It doesn't seem that long ago I was planning a London trip for April and was speaking to Steff and a few other members about meeting up. I'd held back holiday towards the end of the year in the hope I'd be able to have a trip south but obviously not to be. There is a slight irony in that ...

Dear Blog,

New Alienware M15 - an ultrabook from Alienware?

59361 Its funny how times change - I bought my first laptop as a mobile gaming PC, I was moving around a lot with work so was easier than a PC. But once work settled down I went back to a PC - Mainly down to cost and upgrade options, gradually upgrade bits over the years instead of large investment...

USB-C Hub for laptop and desktop

What you seem to want is a USB-C KVM switch which should be technically possible but I can't find anyone that makes one, the only ones I can find don't power the host devices. That would be the neatest solution as then you'd just press a button to switch between the two machines. A standard USB-C hu...

Mobile Phone

59539 I'm a big fan of Android and never considered iPhone, for personal use I've always stuck with phones using close to stock Android. I was given a Samsung phone for work and hated it, lots of Samsung specific apps that I don't think you can remove. Also I really didn't like the UI on Samsung, j...

The lower resolution of the Note10 screen is a plus for me as it's what the Note8 runs at by default and I didn't find running a higher resolution beneficial on such a small screen so would prefer to run it native at that screen. No sd would be a deal breaker although personally wouldn't consider an...

Bear in mind the two plus sizes are not the same size so the S10 is the smallest, the S10+ and Note 10 are a similar size and then the Note 10+ dwarfs them all. There's a few different ram differences depending on storage of each model and the other main differences I'm aware of is that the S10 and ...

I agree as I'm relieved that it's nothing bad and that I know what it is as initially when I phoned for my results I was told by someone that a GP had checked the results and marked them as ok which made me feel total despair as I was desperate for how to proceed and now I had nothing. Thankfully th...

I have to laugh at the optimism on my last post as to put it mildly, that didn't go to plan. I decided on my setup for my LEJOG attempt and bought what I needed then started work on my route and booking my overnight stays but started to have cold feet when I was pricing it all up as it was going to ...
