  1. A bit strange to ask this in steel city xD but does anyone know place in sheffield who can cut my own metal in desired sizes? I got several damascus steel rods that i need cut into 1cm long discs (2.5cm diameter). Anyone has suggestions if there is any machining company or facility who would do that? Thanks
  2. Hello people! SO I decided to go for a motorcycle riding. Gave up on car as I thought having a car as I travel alone all the time, was not worth keeping it. In two weeks I'm taking my CBT, and then planning to go either A2 or DAS, but I cant decide. I dont really like fast rides, loud engines and revving, I just want good commuter, powerfull enough to pull me through motorways. I set my eyes on Kawasaki Ninja 300, which is very good all rounder. A2 license is enough for it. Now I got enough money for DAS too, but price wise A2 may be around £200 cheaper than DAS. If I do not intend to go above 400cc (Ninja 300 is exactly 300cc and 35bhp perfect for A2), would it make more sense to go for A2? Any advice appreciated!
  3. Hello people! So I'd like to ask if anyone knows the answer. I have full UK drivers licence for over 9 years already. I decided to migrate completely to motorcycle instead. Now, I do have full drivers licence, I'm 29, got 5 years of NCD on my insurances. I'm getting ready to go for a CBT and then buy 125cc motorcycle to get used to riding and motorcycle controls. The question is... Do I need the L sticker on motorcycle? as a lot of guides online say different things some say if you have other type of licence you only need CBT and you're OK without L sticker... I just want to be sure... Anyone knows anything about this?
  4. Hello everyone! I'm huge fan of wild swimming. I've been living in Sheffield for 7 years and managed to find one spot - Slippery stones in Peak district. Are there anymore spots? Mind to share? Thanks in advance
  5. Thanks for all the answers! Repeater worked, signal appeared and even 3D was supported but image was getting distorted when I tried to watch Hi res images. I removed the repeater and, somehow it works now. I use same 10M cable, same connector and it works well. Strange, for three days I was looking for solution and even tried different cable, but only after plugging in the HDMI repeater it started to work. Thanks anyway, problem solved now!
  6. Hey people. Maybe someone will be able to help me. I have a high end gaming PC which I'm trying to set up with my projector (for long movie evenings). I have bough good quality Optoma projector which supports 1080p input. Now I have tried 10m cable on my old (demo) projector before buying Optoma, and it worked perfectly (cheap chinese projector, image quality horrible and only 800 lumens, but it worked), now when I connect new Optoma, it does not work, it works with chromestick or connected to laptop, but does not work on my PC. My graphics are Radeon Fury X, three DP and one HDMI ports. HDMI port definitely works as I used it with my telly before. Today I have bought HDMI signal repeater to test maybe just cable lenght is an issue. But if not, what should I try? Maybe DP to HDMI adapter and try same cable, I dont want to use 10m long analog input as signal would be horrible. Any ideas? Anyone else had similar issue? Any help appreciated!
  7. Hello guys, I need help: I'm quite techy guy, have repaired a lot of computers but now stumbled on something I cant fix. I wanted to replace my own laptops motherboard as it had failed GPU, ordered brand new motherboard from manufacturer. Now I found out it needs battery port and m-sata ports soldered on (new or moved from old motherboard. Can anyone in sheffield do that?
  8. Hello people It may sound childish, but I had been doing some research on nootropics. Basically it's medicaments and supplements that boosts IQ, memory and other cognitive functions because of missing element in brain while aging. Now this topic went to sci-fi as well with movie Limitless, where main protagonist took overpowered nootropic pill called NZT-48. But this film is based on real life nootropics as far as I understand. Has anyone here tried DMAE or other cognitive function boosters and has something to say? I have difficulties concentrating sometimes and memory is not as good as it was in college days. Opinions appreciated! Thanks
  9. Hello people! I just wanting to know. My friends starts business and wants to advertise his brand as good as possible. I'd like to help him and put his brand logo or website sticker on my car's rear window. it would take about 25-30% of window clear area. Now the question is, do I need to inform my insurance? This is not decorative, it's promotional sticker (just like car dealers leave one when you buy a car). Any people who had this before and can share some knowledge? Thanks
  10. Yo! I'd check out those people from ehallam. Fairly close to city centre(waljley) in seems to be fair and friendly place. http://www.ehallam.com
  11. You want to buy a modular PSU dont go for used ones unless really trusted seller. Now new ones, depending on how much power you need you may just go with semi modular. I bought semi modular overclockers branded 80 Bronze PSU, it powers up my OC 8320fx chip and radeon R9 290X, it's been 2 years already never had any problems. Small advice - if you going to buy semi modular PSU, check that cables would be braided in same color as the case, it's blends in cicely then.
  12. Hello I think you may find those in Maplin, but honestly, they always charge a fortune even for a small item (like sata to molex adapter for £7 ). Didn't you check ebay or amazon for those parts? On ebay arduino board with ready soldered headers is around £6, UART converter costs around £5 and 4o pcs of female duponts costs less than £3. So you'd be looking at £16-18. In Maplin you'd most likely pay around £40 altogether. Just sayin...
