Re: iPad lightening charger cables

As Sid rightly says, there are plenty of adaptors out there that will convert a whole range of phones to wireless charging a good example is the Powermat that would charge an iPhone 4 way back in 2010.....so nothing different or ground breaking with the 2015 LGG4, which you had to buy as extra the c...

Re: iPad lightening charger cables

Without actually seeing your charger to me it says there is a fault with the iPad Port or it has some lint/debris in the Port causing a bad/intermittent connection. I had a similar problem awhile ago and used iphone torch to look inside and then used a very small bristle brush and gently cleaned awa...

Re: Ping speed

Wicksey, before you do anything (unless you've already done this) I would suggest you turn off and unplug your router for a minute and then reboot. Then go into Smarty and re validate your IP and then check if this has solved your issues. SmartyDNS should NOT affect your speeds or ping.

Re: Choosing / changing electricity contract

Your "Potencia Contratada" of 9.873 is way OTT and is a major factor in your very high bills. From what you say in your post I would suggest you go to Endesa and get it reduced to around 4.00 which is ample and would be far cheaper. Go to the local office and they should be able to calcula...

Tiger Balm (Red) works well, I think you can get it in some of the larger Chinese shops or at least something very similar. https://www.google.co.uk/search?tbm=isch&q=tiger+balm+spain&chips=q:tiger+balm+spain,online_chips:balm+ultra&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwik89bEqeHXAhVqCMAKHc92BbwQ4lYIKygE&...

Slightly off topic but Sid and Gerry with your memories of IBM I think you may enjoy the series on Amazon called Halt and Catch Fire (I know from previous posts that you have Amazon Sid). Have a look at the trailer. Well worth watching. Drama documenting the advent of home PC's in the early 80's onw...
