  1. I know it's a touch on the expensive side but you could also take a look at Starlink too.
  2. Wouldn't be the first time this has magically happened to Dandara.
  3. Possibly the Adventure Centre in Maughold if the recovery truck was heading North.
  4. I'd quite like either a Prusa or a Voron, but I barely use the one I currently have in order to justify it...
  5. Makes a change from the imminent housing market crash that was all the rage on here 17 years back.
  6. I've got it too as fibre wont be in my area until mid-2023. It's been an absolute game changer for us and worth every penny. Before Starlink we were reliant on Sure 4G which, although faster than ADSL, ended up being heavily limited due to the restrictions they introduced.
  7. And the clothes allowance.
  8. "A full point by point rebuttal shall be issued".
  9. Thanks John, I don't know anything of the case either hence my first question about the quantity of anaesthetists and the consequential charges. Either way, I hope this can be sorted out sensibly in a timely manner. Reading the replies above it looks like the Hospital could be a big dilemma otherwise.
  10. Right, so hear me out: if it's the case that extra anaesthetists we're required to try and help after the operation went massively sideways, yet they're all being investigated/prosecuted for manslaughter, then would that set a legal precedence against anyone trying to administer corrective action/first aid to someone that ultimately passes away? Could this possibly snowball to, say, anyone in the workplace that unsuccessfully administers first aid like the police, St Johns ambulance or even your average Joe than has to use those defibrillators in the street? @John Wright?
  11. @wrighty just pondering something here, do routine operations require four anaesthetists to be present?
  12. Greatest of all time. I'm not a Lewis fan but his records speak for themselves. It'd be nice to see Williams battling up at the front too.
  13. I think I'm correct in saying the stewards have access to all the teams radio throught the race, we obviously only get to hear the tasty bits. I'd agree with Masi's thinking, the teams have been asking for 'racing to the flag' all season so that's what he gave them. Either way Lewis still walks away the GOAT just by the records he's broken over the last couple of seasons. I'm pretty sure he'll take his 8th championship before retirement. That's all in the past now anyway, roll on the McLaren domination next season!
  14. I wouldn't say its censorship, the stewards hear everything anyway, but to argue, demand and then shout at the race director doesn't help him to make a sound decision either. Its decisions like that which need total clarity and a focused mind to avoid the type of fall out which we are currently witnessing, with that you should see more consistency too. Either way, the only fault that I can see that Masi made at the end was not letting all the lapped cars through. Mercedes, not for the first time this year, played it too safe during the VSC despite knowing they had the far superior car on the day.
  15. Personally I think they really need to ban all teams from trying to influence the race by lobbying the RD during the race, the 'dangerous driving' message from Toto to Masi was just so cringeworthy, every man and his dog could see that was hard but fair racing from Checo. If the teams want consistency going forward then they need to let the RD and stewards get on with it, not cloud their judgement with constant barrages of whinging and whining.
  16. You're fucking delusional.
  17. Out of interest, which one?
  18. The likes of ClearVu can do it.
  19. Nope, everything is done through the Starlink website apart from installing the dish, which anyone can do. Bluewave as far as I can gather are maintaining the ground station.
  20. True, but none of it is going into MT's pocket. Prices are predicted to come down though once more users have taken it up.
  21. Speeds are good too. I'm normally receiving around 280Mbps down and 30+Mbps up.
  22. I've got so fed up with MT with the fibre rollout debacle that I'm now using Starlink. I can't see myself ever going back to a local telecoms, Starlink have a great customer service and the service itself is a breeze to set up.
  23. Another for Ayre & Michael: Sosthene Boussougou
  24. I don't think it will. Once the ground station goes online then a local telecoms company will look after the equipment via a maintenence contract. The only thing this will do is probably draw customers away from the likes of Sure and MT, especially if fibre is still some years away.
  25. As the guys said, it's all done through a dish to the satellites for down/up traffic at the users end. The ground stations are what links the satellites to the internet data centers. ETA: Here's a link that shows all the Starlink satellites https://satellitemap.space/#
