Re: What is 5G and what impact will it have?

Good find and good and good read.

Being in the industry since the mobile phone was a regular looking hand set attached to a 20 pound 2 way radio, its been amazing to see the leaps in technology.

In the US elevators do not have a 13th floor, as is the case here. Do they in England?

Just dawned on me, rubbers were for cleaning chalk boards in school. My mistake. We called them erasers.

Re: Same words different translations

There's always the good old Rubber. In England its that thing clearing water from your "windscreen". In the US (I was a little tot at the time) it was whay we put over our shoes on rainy days.

Need to Replace Kaspersky

I've been using Kaspersky for years but now need to replace it due not having a US address any longer.

So, what's a recommended replacement? I don't mind paying for a decent anti-virus that can be used on multiple devices; PC, iPad, and 2 Android phones.

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

Can anyone explain what the Thai thinking could be behind the reluctance to admit the boys were sedated for the trip out? I really don't get it. If one or more had died then I would understand the reluctance somewhat... but heck they are all out and doing so much better than anyone could have hoped...

Awesome end to an amazing effort by all involved.

Cave divers are a special group of people with amazing calmness when faced with would normally be an emergency. I'm proud to have known and dove with many.

I'll just say this. In 40 years I've only met one Psychiatrist that wasn't a Narcissistic arsehole who put the good of the patient before their own agenda.

Can I have some of what these guys are smoking? Looking at that drawing they clearly don't understand what "underwater: means. Only time effort is needed in SCUBA is when working against a flow. Otherwise cave divers use a very efficient Frog kick that does not stir up muck and is easy on the leg mu...

for the highly experienced Brit rescuers it's a 3hr hike to get to the boys.
Actually, it's very relaxing. You don't feel the weight of the gear. Only taxing part is swimming against a current.
