  2. Large spotlight bulbs - what size/type are they?

    Our new house has quite a few large in-ceiling bulbs. I think they were popular in the 90s as my parents used them too - they are about the size of your palm, screwing into a large mount almost as big as a saucer. I'm struggling to find actual sizes of bulbs to be sure what size they are, so I...

  3. Using VPN to access Netflix in the UK from abroad.

    Recently I signed up after doing a bit of research in VPN's to a company called NordVPN. It gets rave reviews in the press and they do have some decent offers on subscriptions. I signed up for a two year deal which worked out at about GBP 2.50p a month, a good deal. The software installed fine on...

  5. Flexible & secure mobile app for general contact details and web addresses etc

    I've been using the default Contact app on my Android-based mobile phone, but the more extensive the data I save there the more restrictive the app seems. Also, I'm pretty sure that storing account numbers and passwords in a Contact app is highly insecure, especially if other apps can access it....

    What off-site backup solutions do people here use? I'm looking for one with built-in encryption too. Also, any thoughts on how secure Dropbox is, given it doesn't really encrypt/Dropbox control the keys?

  13. Google Analytics, Ensighten and other analytics tools.

    Does anyone know how web analysis tools tell whether a user is on a tablet, smartphone or desktop when they produce their analytics? Does it actually detect the device type or is it looking at browser type/os?

  15. Connecting multiple Bluetooth devices to one phone.

    As per the title, anyone know if this is possible with an Android phone, specifically a OnePlus 3T. For my upcoming jaunt on the bike it would be nice if I could connect a bluetooth earpiece with my phone as well as the bike computer at the same time.

Turns out "t' box is in wrong place" and that means they not only need to dig up my garden they need to go through a bit of my neighbour's garden too, and for that they need his permission. He wasn't in. I have a form to ask him...

  18. Merging data between two SQL servers

  19. Any SAPs out there?

    I've got a .net application that runs a sql script to populate a staging table.
