It's all kicking off in Israel/Gaza.


I certainly don't condone the indiscriminate firing of rockets into populated region but I can't help think that when your back's to the wall...

It's time the international community pressured the Israeli  government's settlement enforced evictions programme, it's extreme Zionism

Diversity and equality have been hijacked and commercialised.

It makes me fucking sick.

I'm not convinced you'll be able to utilise this as intended as the PS3 usb ports are only 5v and iirc you'll need 12v to power that drive properly.

5v will power the logic side and any lights but the drive motor will be 12v.

I've even tried that with PS4, seems to work with me. Maybe Andrew should try another USB cable

I swear the woke community are having a laugh on us. It seems like some drivel comedy that no-one with enough sense finds funny

There must be easier ways to keep yourself sharp than the pain of Windows98. :huh:

On the Brits:

Quote
Little Mix are the first female group to win the best British prize in the history of the awards.

Singer Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: "It's not easy being a female in the UK pop industry. We have seen white male dominance, misogyny, sexism and lack of diversity.

"We are proud of how we have stuck together, stood our ground and surrounded ourselves with strong women and are now using our voices more than ever."

We have? Good lord, next thing you know we'll be getting an all female pop band called the Spice Girls having money and pre-written songs thrown at them....

Also worth pointing out that Little Mix described their song Black Magic as being about a potion that makes guys fall in love with girls. To me, if a dude wrote a song about a potion that made women fall in love with men that would be lambasted as romanticising spiking a woman's drink. But hey ho.

Well done on getting the Antikythera mechanism to at least look for a keyboard.  :cheesy:
Believe it or not, I still get a kick out of putting ye olde machines together.
I have an ancient PII, 512Mb and Win 98 on a 6Gb HDD a P4 running XP on 2Gb /30Gb HDD and a few others here and there. I find it good to prevent skill-fade, especially since I'm now nearly on the wrong side of 60.
 :huh:

You'll need something like this
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B011M8YACM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have backup my PS4 using this

It's an external drive so already has this, just enclosed.

Yes that is correct.

OK that makes sense.  I've also tried a powered hub just now but it just wasn't getting enough power to power it.

I will move the data from my mains powered external harddrive to the portable one and then try the powered external harddrive with the PS3 and see if that works ok and will let you know if it does or not.  It's going to take a while to do as powered harddrive is nearly full.

Thank you again.
