    Mammoth Tank

    This looks awesome subbed. The bevel router bit. I'm curious how did you use it? Clamp the work piece then run the router round by hand?

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    Went for a walk up on moor today, was quite nice. Hear complaints about the quantity of people driving but id rather travel 10 min by car and get my exercise where there are very few people and large open spaces to easily avoid the people that are there, rather than jog round the village with...

    The TPU UK Clubhouse

    Interesting, its dead here. Few people outside go to the effort of one person walking out into the middle of road when walking past someone on same side. Very bizzare and quite nice not hearing cars. Hearing allot more bird song which is nice.

    Self Isolation Project logs

Not only are people putting themselves i danger to work but others are losing jobs entirely is quite sad all round. There's...

    Printer pauses after every line - Only on Ubutnu

    It sure is, not only do i have to push the start button on the washing machine or reach for the remote control, now i have to wait an extra 60 seconds for my documents to print. Wondered which side of the fence this is on. It interesting because iv'e since realised its not stopping after...

    Printer pauses after every line - Only on Ubutnu

    Recently setup a Ubuntu box for basic stuff. However since hooking up our old Cannon Pixma MP190 printer ive notice it prints terribly slowly for things that contain allot of solid colour. I assume there is a setting somewhere thats letting the ink dry before it moves onto the next line. On...

    Laptop battery problems - wont charge

    Ah ok i misunderstood, i though that meant only when there is a load applied to the battery. Think i underestimated how long it takes them to discharge.

    Laptop battery problems - wont charge

    Thanks all, Yea power brick never warms up when charging without the laptop running, the laptop battery is stone cold when charging or with the laptop running. Light on the laptop goes straight to green (indicates fully charged). Laptop it self is only 3 years old, however the battery is...

    Laptop battery problems - wont charge

    Hi all Quick question. Can laptop batteries die to the point the OS reports no battery installed and removing the power it dies instantly? I have a laptop thats been in storage for at least 6 month. I plugged it in to let it charge up for a while. After which both Windows and Linux report that...

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    Well sadly its still kaput. Re-soldered everything and still the same. My soldering is not the neatest but it is serviceable with no shorts or anything like that. May just have to accept its dead. Thanks for the advise anyway

    What are you playing?

    Found this little gem in the loft. Sadly it was wishful thinking trying to run it on the xbox one. I know its 360 backwards compat so looks like ill be hooking that up. Shame the one cant boot up its 360 emulator and then that boot up its classic emulator. So yea was going to be playing...

    New Desk Build (Build Log)

    Subbed. Looking neat. Seen a similar process used to make custom door cards. Fabric stretched over a frame then resin used to make it a rigid structure. Cool technique.

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    Yea lets not nose dive this thread into an argument about who's right over magnet damage. Thanks for the input on trying to resolve my cartridge problems.

    My pc might be infected with virus on a hardware level

    You say you already re-installed Windows and still the behaviour is the same. Was that an entire drive re-format and reinstall? What actions did you perform after the fresh install that lead up to this behaviour returning? Your probably doing something that is re-infecting your machine. That...

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    Thanks for the info (and showing UK results ;) ) , ill order some when i get Flux. I suppose it would only affect magnetic media? Which the carts aren't. If so that means its more likely mechanical failure external to the chips, which is repairable.

    Technical Issues - TPU Main Site & Forum (2020)

    I click on the title. Been a while since Iv'e been on the forums, so may well have changed since then. That or more likely i remember it different! Either way clicking on the page number indicator to the right takes me to that page, so thats a workaround to the same end. Was just curious if it...

    Technical Issues - TPU Main Site & Forum (2020)

    Has anyone else noticed when viewing a post with many pages it will always default to the first page? Even if it marks the thread as having no new posts? Is this expected behaviour?

    NCA: Children hacking with Kali Linux, Tor, and Discord?

    Its always funny seeing things like this that are obviously geared towards people with very little knowledge of computing, created by people who probably have equally little knowledge and just using a bunch of buzzwords. Its the same reason i put some Pokemon in the list of...

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    I do have spare batteries left over from replacing some N64 carts, i think they are the same will check. I hope someone hasn't killed it with a magnet. I assume legit carts can't be re-flashed?

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    Yup, ill post some when i get in from work. Yea i usually have some in. Forgot to replace it when i last ran out. Photo's added. As i said can't see anything obvious, however all i did was try and reflow the existing solder. When i get my hands on some more flux ill try adding some more solder.

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    Didn't think about the system itself. No i haven't but i have tested it on a GBC and pocket and it behaves the same. Can't hurt to give them a clean either way though.

    [GB] Wario Land failing to load

    Got a copy of Wario Land for my GameBoy at the weekend and when trying to load it gets stuck at a blank white screen after the initial Nintendo logo. I've attempted cleaning the pins with isopropyl alcohol and using an eraser. Iv'e also tried opening up the cart and re-flowing the pins...
