  1. Azure cost of test development website.

    Does anyone know what the monthly cost will be to get an Azure pay as you go subscription but only for development testing, so there will be no traffic. Effectively I only need 2 or 3 web applications ( web sites or whatever they are called ) and 2 - 3 very small databases for these web apps. So no...

  2. Generate a really accurate map/plan of your grounds and house

    Slightly related to the other thread, but the place we're moving to in the country has about 1/2 acre attached. It has the potential to be incredible but right now is overgrown to the extent I can't easily get a mental picture of how it fits together especially with elevation changes... what I...

  3. Server Recommendations

    My trusty Tranquil Server is ten years old and although it's working OK, I've had a couple of disk overheats so I'd like to replace it before I have to. As it has to be Windows and I'd prefer a smaller box I was looking at the HP Gen8 but was worried it might be underpowered. Anyone got one or...

  5. Drawing Software

    I need to put in a planning application for some work I want to do to my house. For this I need to submit some scale drawings of each elevation of the property. I'm so cack-handed, there's no way I could draw them manually, and I don't want to pay an architect £100 per hour to do it. Does...

  6. CCTV recommendations

    Some daft nonce has decided to throw some dog poo at my car this morning, as possibly they think I've not cleaned up after my dog outside their place. This couldn't be further from the truth as I'm proper anti lazy owners who are too lazy/feckless to clean up after their dog. They don't deserve...

  10. PoE using 'flat' Cat6

    Anyone used flat Cat6 cable with a PoE device? Only just discovered flat Cat6 cable, I thought the way the pairs were twisted reduced the loss, so having it flat, does that not loose some of that???
