    Inherited Linx 8 Tablet

    Might want to check out JingOS. A Linux distro for tablets, designed to look like and run Android apps. I have no experience with it, but am aware of it: https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=jingos https://github.com/JingOS-team/JingOS

    I do have a TP-Link USB micro-adapter in it now. However it is really slow. It would be better to have a PCI card I think.

    Inherited Linx 8 Tablet

    Just to finish off this thread. The OP prefers android to linux. He is hoping to sell the inherited Linx 8 tablet running Windows. Someone is giving him an old Samsung Galaxy Tab A6 (2016) which will suit his needs. Since my Galaxy Tab Pro purchased in 2016 is still going strong, I'm sure he'll be happy with the Tab A6. It is probably newer than my device.
  8. Tight pants for men went out of style with Beau Brummel in the early 1800s. Not only don't they drape properly, they are uncomfortable even standing. Unbearable while sitting. I don't even know what to call the weird things you pictured. Certainly not "dress pants".

    How so? Without quotes, it looks like you were saying that.

    Well you didn't quote the post so I wasn't for sure if that was you're work or not.
  12. 3 D printing has moved on by leaps and bounds. You can get a good starter unit here for less than £200. Even cheaper in the USA.

    It should do with no problems.

    If you mean the software -- then I wish ----i am not that clever. Developer is called pufferfish-tech this is the software of his I used, https://github.com/pufferfish-tech/octopus-agile-pi-prices All the above attracted me as I had an older Pi 2 and it seemed as though setting up seemed not too complicated. Turned out it was a little more complicated than I thought and I seem to have messed up getting shh to work. Turns out shh is not a problem as I have unplugged the Pi several times and it has restarted with no problems. If Octopuss change their net address I will have to plug the Pi into my tv to make adjustments.

    I am a little picky when it comes to what I choose to rehabilitate. This Dell desktop is particularly nice. It has a standard ATX motherboard so I could put in an old 500W power supply that will run a PCIe GTX950 video card. Then I upgraded the BIOS to support 8GB of RAM. I cannot run a Core 2 Quad but a high end Core 2 Duo fits right in. All 64 bit stuff. Finallly the unit supports SATA1 so I can add a low end SSD and get relatively good performance. All of this stuff would be ewaste considered individually (SSD excepted.) But it is a nice enough package deal to run a light Linux distro. I'm only using it as a jukebox but it would be OK as an office PC or for the Web. I'd need to do something about its wifi though. Probably an old PCI N adapter could help.

    Excellent, thanks Will
  22. Sorry but I have zero interest in recording things on my computers.

    As well as the Pi project making me smile. The Octopuss Agile prices make me beam too. Here are some screenshots of my latest energy prices showing on the Inky pHAT. Those are pence per kilowatt hour. An the minus sign is not a mistake, Octopuss were paying me to use electricity in that half hour. If anyone is thinking of joining Octopuss I am on their https://octopus.energy/smart/tracker/ tariff for GAS and am paying 4.6p per unit and have been since December last year. It was a little lower at 3.8p but has risen lately. The electric cost has averaged out at around 17p per kwh since December too. Using this referral code would give me £50 and the user £50 https://share.octopus.energy/sky-sheep-473 The agile tariff is mainly for solar users so not so good for ordinary users. however the TRACKER tariff can be used by any normal user and would save a ton of loot. You would need to keep an eye out on the tariff rates though. https://octopus.energy/smart/tracker/
  24. Bit of a misnomer there mate. Almost makes it seem like a description of something that is fit for purpose.
