    Which 10" FHD tablet to get?

    As the title suggests I'm currently looking at tablets and could use some advice. First up the criteria I've worked out so far: - at least 10" screen - at least full-HD resolution - microSD reader - budget: ~300? One of the main reasons why I'm looking at tablets is because I want to be able...

    Cherry G80-1000 not working with PS2 port

    So I've been using an old Cherry G80-1000 forever, which still has one of those ancients DIN plugs. I've been using it with an adpater to PS2 for a long time now, so far without problems. But now I upgraded my mainboard (to an Asrock Z87 Pro4), which still has a keyboad PS2 socket, but...

    Navigation for Android

    So, I've been looking at navigation apps for android, but haven't really found what I'm looking for so far. So I thought maybe there are some more knowledgeable people here. I've been using the Google Maps navigation so far, but I'm not too happy with the changes in the last big update. Most...

    Looking for a TV

    Since I've moved to a different room in our house where I have more space available, I want to finally get myself a TV. I've been browsing around the last couple of days, and I'm lost. Even more so than when I began. Every manufacturer has a bunch of models, even in the same size, that all look...

    Making my PC quiet

    I've got a Lancool K58 case for my PC, and I'm looking for some advice on how to make it more quiet. It's not loud, but audible. It's got a 140mm fan in the front, and a 120mm fan in the back, with the option for two 140mm fans on top. And to be honest I've got no idea about what to do and what...

    A question for the whisky experts

    I'm looking for a Christmas present for my sister, and she said that she'd be happy about a good whisky. She also mentioned Glenfiddich and Bruichladdich as references, so something in that direction would be great. As this is supposed to be a gift, it's fine if it's a bit pricier. I'd really...

    ABS light on intermittently

    The ABS checklight in the dashboard of my Benz sometimes comes on (and stays on) when driving, without any sort of specific pattern or trigger I could identify. I don't think the ABS module itself is broken, because most of the time ABS does work, just every now and then the light comes on and...

    Adjusting the headlight on an XT600

    I know how to adjust the headlight, i.e. which screws to turn, but I can't find anything about the criteria for a correct adjustment, like how high the beam should be at a certain distance. Even the factory service manual only explains the how without any reference, and my google fu didn't yield...

    Say Hi to Christie - shad's XT600

    After being constantly on the lookout I found what I wanted. :) It's a '94 Yamaha XT 600, 28.000km, runs great and rides beautifully. Got it for an imo very nice price, with a lot of luck though. Went to look at it and have a test ride on tuesday, but didn't take it immediately because I had to...

    Dead Golf3 - electrics?

    My family's petrol Golf3 won't start anymore - when you turn the key, nothing happens. It's not the battery, headlights work and the starter doesn't engage at all. Other symptoms: - Even with ignition on, none of the check lights in the dashboard come on - headlights and dashboard illumination...

    shad's Mercedes 190E

    This is it, my first car. :D It's a 1988 Mercedes 190E, with the 118hp 2.0l engine, five speed manual transmission and a smidge under 200k km on the clock. I have been looking for a car that's a bit more interesting, because I technically really don't need one. So I figured, if I were to get...

    Sticky rear wheel on bike

    Prelude: Yesterday evening I noticed that the brake light on the BMW was on the whole time. Apparently because the pedal was hanging a bit low, and thus constantly setting off the contact switch. No big deal, I thought, and set out to readjust the pedal position this morning. After I had done...

    Golf IV problems

    My parent's 2000 Golf IV has got a few small issues at the moment, but I couldn't really find any info on them on general IV problem pages. So I thought I'd ask here, FG has it's fair share of knowledgeable people afterall. First, the rear window washer doesn't work. It doesn't spray any water...

    My pixelised doodles [PixelArt]

    One of my hobbies that has been dormant for a while... until now! :P First up the reference I used: Which I resized to 150px height, traced over the edges and then coloured. Result: It's not terribly accurate, but a lot of the details, especially around the engine, would've been such a...

    A different sort of beemer

    Nope, not the usual 3- or 5-series etc., this is a real beemer*. :P ;) What you have here is a '97 F650 with 650cc of thumping single-cylinder goodness chucking out 48hp. Me and my dad bought it from a friend, first owner who took it to every inspection, good condition, only ~24.000km on...

    First bike: Yamaha YBR125

    My entry into the world of motorcycling since last October :) although me and my dad both paid half of it and are now sharing :P Maybe not all that impressive, but it's cheap (this one especially, 1700? as a pre-reg, but also to run - tax free and insurance is a laugh :D), and that's what I...
