    I bet it is getting a +12V input, or it is not a true plasma type tube.

      LEDs with some really funky light-piping going on.

        From a review I just found:No mention of another power source.

            Gee, thanks for the heads up! I'll be sure to plan around that timing window.

              Geesh, you'd think they'd schedule that overnight...

                Wouldn't it be likely that they just forgot to include the line that says, " As we get closer, the day prior to your installation, we will let you know when we are planning to perform the task so you can plan around this down-time." I'd hope so, at least...

                  I wonder what's the lowest spec PC I could use for a gigabit router.

                      The old, shhity Atom N2700 is OK at just routing + firewall. Useless if you want any form of VPN. Personally, I like my routers in VMs combined with a healthy dose of VLANs.

                          Those things are a pain to get replacement parts for, especially an old model like that. No point buying yourself in to trouble later on. Surely that's overkill too, wouldn't you want something smaller like a net-top?

                            I just got a notification thing on this Windows 10 laptop that someone who is clearly one of those spammy sex chat bots wants to add my contact on skype.

                            Uh, why is that running? I never installed skype, nor did I enable it to do anything if for some reason Windows preinstalled it for me. I guess then Windows linked my email address to a skype account I haven't touched in probably 5 years at least. There's a line which has been crossed here, and I ain't all peachy over it.

                                    Eh? Isn't it a picture of a display that someone took instead of a screenshot?

                                      That's someone taking a photo with a not-great cell phone camera of a display, as Archie411 pointed out. The tech specs displayed on screen are consistent with a mid-2007 Mac Mini.

                                          The "2" in the Memory section has a suspicious border around it and seems to be a bit misaligned. Not 100% sure due to photo quality.
