Re: Smarty DNS

If I change to samartdnsproxy do I just change it in the router or do I have to do something to all the TVs? That depends how you have stuff configured for your current service. If you only have DNS configured on your router, then simply change its settingsbto smartdnsproxy's DNS servers. If you ha...

Re: Smarty DNS

Been using smartdnsproxy for 18 months or so. Has proved to be very reliable and I have had no issues with BBC or any other UK services, even tvplayer is working a treat. On the odd occasion that I have contacted support their have been very responsive. Would recommend them without hesitation.

Re: ?how long before letting a kitten outside?

We rescued, or should I say kidnapped a kitten from the village a few month ago. I guess it was around 6 months old at the time and used to people since it and it's siblings scrounged food from the restaurants in the village, hence no problem catching it. The following day we took it to a vet to be ...

Re: Built in log burner problem

There are a couple of screws at the bottom of the facia which after several days of WD40 do turn. But at the top of the fire there is a knob that controls a flap in the flue. Looks like this knob needs to be removed for the facia to come off. I know that the bolts that hold the actual flap to the sh...

Built in log burner problem

Morning all. We have a built in log burner that has a couple off fans that circulate warm air into the room. It is around 10 years old and one of the fans has seized and needs replacing. Surprising how much difference to the room temp one broken fan makes. I have no experience of these and no real i...

Re: New to Pool Maintenance..

I can never tell whether the pH is correct with either the strips or drop testers. So I use a pH meter, which are pretty cheap from eBay or Chinese shops. I use Aquacheck strips for everything else. Shows a little purple then I have sufficient chlorine. Other people prefer the drops, or tablets. Non...

Call me a cynic but I like to keep my passwords locally where I can keep an eye on them. Hence I use passwordsafe, and have done for more years the I care to remember.
