    I got it to be recognised again over the weekend (didn't have to fuss with powering on with or without data cable, it was just "there" on startup), downloaded Crucial's recent Storage executive drive...

    Indeed. However, I live in DRC, which is pretty much off the map in normal terms (ATMs have only been operational here for the last 5 years or so). I think the warranty is 3 years on my MX100, that's...

    Thanks! I'll try that. Sadly, the RMA may not be possible as I'm no longer in the UK to lodge it and I doubt there's a local distributor. Rather annoying!
  4. Is my SSD dead? Intermittent freezes and BSOD, followed by BIOS failure to detect it

    So, I've had a Crucial MX100 512GB SSD for about a year, based on Mr Jeremy Laird Esquire's recommendation. I'm using Win7 (loaded on the SSD) and I migrated my widows install from its original home...

    So here's a question: do you think the upgrade will need one to then re-install any applications/games? I've not yet done any of the upgrade "overwrites" available with recent versions of windows and...

    Ok, thanks guys. It looks like I can use my dual band router as a client as long as I use the "input" ethernet port to connect to the wider world. I don't think it'll know any different whether...

    That's pretty much what I'm hoping to do. How did you connect your two routers to each other?

    Ethernet cable seems the easiest but wifi might be more convenient. I'm not sure how I'd get the...

    I've not bought a 3G router/modem yet so not had the chance. Reluctant to shell out more without knowing if it'll work... I'd feel quite stupid sitting here on a mound of expensive but redundant tech...
  9. Home network - how to use two routers, one slaved to the other

    I recently moved to a developing country for work and my options for internet access are limited and generally crap. I have quite a lot of technology that I'd like to interconnect for home...

    OK, looks like I owe you an apology... I've spent most of last night and today with BE and... well it's just is a bit hollow. The ARS technica review is pretty spot on. It really does seem like Civ 5...

    Yeah, that's fair. Although my Hotline Miami comparison is a sign of how good I am at the game... ahem, obviously acing each mission first try... I find I can usually pass a mission with 1 or 2 stars...

    Yeah, especially as you can then go on to meddle in the HRE and/or later form Germany. One of my fav games from Eu3 - so many interesting phases: Livonian crusades, converting to a secular state,...

    Well, after 25% of the exposure you've had I can't really compare notes, but 4 hours still seems like not much time to get to grips with something designed for multiple playthroughs, no?

    That's...

    You're assuming this isn't like Civ4 spin-off Colonisation, a one off? Maybe it is more likely in this day and age that they'll release DLC to pad out the factions & features of BE - but I don't...

    Door Kickers

    Following a certain Mr T. Stone Esquire's judgement on Door Kickers, I bought it on something of an impulse yesterday. I have to say, I'm quite smitten. The missions are short but very replayable and...

    I cede to your longer experience with it. on your point about scifi, I think the absence of radical terraforming, which admitedly could (did) break the game balance in SMAC, does make one ultimately...

    Um, well while you cool kids are trashing it, I rather enjoyed the hour of it I played before work today. Of course it's Civ V underneath but to call it "just a reskin" is wilfully...

    I had been pretty sceptical and ambivalent about this. I'm a big fan of SMAC, even if it has its limitations compared to newer games, and I wasn't convinced by the concepts in the re-imagining. Then,...

    I don't think you'd miss out on THAT much before you could recover a shovel from the locations Drake has mentioned.

    There must be a console command to add the item, no? It would save you a lot of frustration and is surely justified if the game decides to vanish your shovel.
