  1. Also just showed up on 3 PCs all running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Seems to be a FP to me.
  2. This would be banned in Australia. 👎
  3. US pressured Dutch chipmaker firm to block sale to China Thanks for the link.
  4. There is also a chipmaker in the Netherlands. They are having problems exporting chips to other countries. I will try and dig it up as watch the Dutch news daily on SBS in Australia. Do I still have full knowledge of the language - YES.
  5. It will be interesting to see how this will end. Darts at 10 paces??????
  6. @sman, interesting! Huawei is in the news here at the moment as the UK have adopted it. They are part of "Five Eyes" and the other partners are not very happy - our politicians were to visit the UK but are now going to the US.
  7. @sman, this looks interesting. Takes me back to my teens. 😀 Will do some reading later. T U 4 link.
  8. Glad I have decided against running 0Patch at this stage. 👍
  9. The latest cases of the virus — now named COVID-19 by the World Health Organisation (WHO)
  10. It all sounds good to replace the old gas guzzlers but there such a lot of problems to solve. Lithium batteries will not last forever and if it burns it will take a long time to douse that fire. I saw on the news that it took up to 2 days to kill the fire. Australia has a big distance problem. Where I live up to 20,000 persons are unable to use rail to work as the trains are already packed and more services can not be scheduled. Public transport is running at a peak. So they take to the road to Sydney and surrounding suburbs to work. Round trip is at least 3 hours per day - distance 130km round trip (at least). All in all they are looking at a 12 hour day away from home providing the trip is accident free. I worked in Sydney for 30 years for IBM and traveled by rail - left home at 04:55 and arrived back at 16:45. 👍🤣 No working from home then.
  11. @sman, you are full of surprises this session. Snakes in wine, Rats in wine and now dolphins eating puffer-fish. Are you going to be the human guinea pig? 🤣🤣🤣
  12. Ha! The 'Sedric' probably comes shipped with the 'Corona Virus' and will have be quarantined for 14 days.
  13. Yes, that is the article I was referring to. 👍
