I'm not too bothered about running out of bog-roll, there are plenty of alternatives.
Even hand sanitiser isn't a worry if you're desperate.  The WHO has a guide on their website about how to make some
https://www.who.int/gpsc/5may/Guide_to_Local_Production.pdf

Granted, it's going to be several gallons of the stuff but still....

Or even this

Tea tree oil, aloe vera, isopropyl alcohol and water.  Done.

a mate of mine has half a shipping container full of hand sanitizer... he normally gives it away free with stuff he sells online.... he's started selling it for £10 a bottle now

it's mental... I don't agree with profiteering... but at the same time I wish I was the one with the stock!

I try and buy from John Lewis, at least you get a 2 year warranty as standard to mitigate everything being modern toss with a lifespan of 12 seconds :gag:

Can you not dismantle the sub, surely underneath the gadgets it has a speaker somewhere you can just replace? TBH given the use case if it's got any crap solder joints (most modern tech does :tinhat:) it'll rattle loose, worth checking maybe, depends if you cba.

The FLU is WAY worse., Yes this new virus may spread quicker and there is no vaccination but come on people :(


I am really pissed off with the media right now. Us Humans and idiots are doing the damage on social media but the real Media seem to think this is a do or die for them. For years loosing out to Social Media where people often get their latest news from their twitter feed than actual newspaper or website. The actual media has gone so hard with this virus outbreak, even the BBC has gone nuts on this. They seem to think that it is a war with social media and they have to win.

Half the problem is there's an increasing rise in complete and utter distrust of any form of power now (rightly so) Italy locking down millions of people, Japan shutting all schools quite a while back now, US state dept officially saying a cruise isn't a good idea :lol: yet UK has nothing, infact people are pointing out on twitter last night passengers off flights from Italy were completely unchallenged on entering the UK, no checks, nothing, then you've got the NHS promoting they're "well prepared" on twitter, they're not even prepared for winter :roll:

I see a lot of the "Relax it's fine" Mantra from talking heads is coming from those with vested interests, generally with holdings in the stock market. Too early to say if it's worse or not than the flu, but if I had to bet I'd go all in on much worse than the flu, the USA haven't even been testing properly, has anywhere? :dunno:

I guess a lot depends on what you read, I read Zerohedge often, which is paranoia central https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/trump-boasts-we-have-perfectly-coordinated-plan-stop-virus-16-million-italians-wake  :lol: :lol: :tinhat: :tinhat:

I agree with you 100% on the legacy media going absolutely all out, they know they're fighting the tide coming in.

Yep pretty ridiculous, popped to shop yesterday and panic buying had cleared some shelves, theres just no need! Problem is now theres none for those that actually need the stuff.

So paradoxically there is a need :lol: Mad times :lol:

Thankfully, we had been stocking up on basics for months anyway (from Amazon S&S deals usually) so I'm not too worried. Also if you're that bloody concerned why are you braving going down to the shops anyway instead of ordering online for home delivery? :lol:

They will be tied together so you're unlikely to get a replacement and the cost of a Sony Centre repair will be more than its worth. Use it as an excuse to upgrade to something a bit better!

They normally are tied together and already have the bluetooth sync code locked in so you cant just put something else in place so when one bit goes its all pretty useless.
14 Months seems to be the running trend on nearly everything to break. One good thing in Australia is the fit for use law which basically covers 2 years - An item has to be fit for purpose within that period. So many store staff or companies will try to blank you or play dumb when you ever mention it but they all know it exists. I have mice posted in the post and still have the old one (broken of course) and just the proof of purchase sent etc.

Anyway...
I think your on for a replacement so it will be on what budget you have :(


What is your budget, I am taking it you need wireless?

Which still has holes in it. We do know that Picard still has internal Borg technology, it allows him to communicate in some way with other Borg.

The only reason 7/9 still has external bits is to make it obvious she was Borg, a script ploy to remind people of her origins.

I guess they are just reserving the ass kicking, but there was plenty of options for a fight that never happened.

Still wondering if that poison gas was meant to kill or not.


Has to be a cortical node which means thats a big chunk of brain.

Only smart people here so you all know how idiotic much of the world is right now..


109,936 Current cases roughly
Deaths of 3,806
People recovered Recovered: 60,979


All deaths are from people already of ill health and elderly.


Lets take a look at the old Influenza - The flu:
This is the flu season from about October to now.


Cases: 34,000,000 – 49,000,000
Deaths: 20,000 – 52,000


The FLU is WAY worse., Yes this new virus may spread quicker and there is no vaccination but come on people :(
