    Good and proper climbing technique ~ 3 points of contact (and grip ;) ) at all times :coat:

    Mechanical Internal hard drive recommendations

    Hmm! I surmise they contribute to the overall noise but that dropped a tad when I switched to the SSD mentioned. But there are still 3 of them, though the most noise is generated by the fans and the box is on my desk (IMO never put it/them near the floor......as they are like vacuum cleaners ;)...

    Mechanical Internal hard drive recommendations

    Purely FWIW Whenever I have added drives or replacement to increase storage sizes it has been WD Black drives. Caveat being I have two fans sucking in air over the drives cage as heat is a real killer of drives. PS the last change I made was to replace my C drive (OS system only) & the E...

    Missing instructions GX80

    Makes sense but AFAIK all camera battery chargers have flying leads with the "figure 8" end for the charger and the other end country specific so do the above regs cover that situation of are the regs only for hardwired mains connectors?

    Crikey !!!! o_O I did say "think" because i was few years back....so if they ever turn up again I will know what to do :thinking: (NB I am a bit of a pack rat so I never know what might be hanging around tech wise ;) ) Edit ~ I recalled an old keyboard box......labelled Compaq but in it a...

    Keyboard and Mouse recommendations

    Ah! interesting as the K800 is PC only but the inference was that Keys came in two PC & Mac variants.....................but as it has the "flow" function it could be 'in use' with both a PC and a Mac. More thinking as to whether the presence of Mac labeling on the Keys board, by default, would...

    Missing instructions GX80

    Hmmmm! that it seems is a minor risk with Am azon as they are more often than not sourced out of their Belgium operation and I can only surmise the 'picker' chose the wrong bin i.e. not the UK configured versions one. I would point out (via chat?) that it is clearly not intended for the UK...

    A good point, though as far as I could see, they were all Mac listed ones not PC??? Oh and for sure if I received something with clear signs of mishandling (previous ownership?) it would go straight back with strong words via the chat system !

    Missing instructions GX80

    In general all(?) new camera sold by official UK sources will have English manual and UK plugs. But not all that are sourced from grey market sellers, or indeed bought directly from an EU source will have those included. So who did you buy from?

    Just checking prices for MX Keys on Am azon An there is a modest saving but now as much as for the K800 but what caught my eye was the plentiful supply of used ones of Mac variant.....with many being sold as used by the Am azon warehouse. Odd or not???

    Drat........I think I threw away 3 of the old IBM ones, could have sold them for a few £'s :(

    Keyboard and Mouse recommendations

    Prior to that one I was using an even older beige IBM version (on an old sort of cobbled together Intel 486 box) and that KB was actually awkward to use and I don't touch type. The throw of the keys as I recall was very long and needed the effort normally used on a manual typewriter to 'work'...

    Do you know which version of the BT router (Home Hub?) you are using? (the PlusNet router is PN branded version of the HH 5a) PS here is the PN community discussion thread about the random and awkward dropping of the WiFi connectivity on the 5Ghz band and you will that there are 132 pages of...
