    Thread: Living in apartments

    I lived in a student apartment block at uni. It was concrete structure, double glazed. You didn't hear people living upstairs or downstairs unless someone did something especially noisy like move...

    Thread: Vape hysteria is ****ing pathetic. And why do we not have a cycle bridge in Auckland?

    It is meant to be a safer alternative to smoking cigarettes, preferably a stepping stone to quitting. That's a good thing. I'll take sickening blueberry clouds in public over acrid plumes of eye...

    Thread: Vape hysteria is ****ing pathetic. And why do we not have a cycle bridge in Auckland?

    Gonna be a devils advocate here: two of those articles are about poor quality batteries which speaks only of cheaply made gadgets and not the dangers of vaping specifically. Another two articles are...

    Thread: Laptops: low end games and uni work, good durability?

    Just in case anyone cares, I went for a Lenovo Ideapad L340 gaming version. Stuck with the cheaper i5/8gb tier but went for a 256gb SSD. Came in at $1392 NZD (incl tax and shipping). Picked it...

    Thread: Laptops: low end games and uni work, good durability?

    Maybe I explained it poorly. Let me break it down.



    I didn't say either of those things. I need something that can play old Source games but can have a good crack at newer titles. Stuff like...

    Thread: How does Vodafone "off peak" data work?

    I'm on Prepay. You can get "offpkMBs" that are for "between 7pm and 7am mon to fri and any time during weekends".

    How does this work then? Will data drop out during peak hours or will I sneakily...

    Thread: Laptops: low end games and uni work, good durability?

    Any thoughts on a good sub-$1800 laptop that will last a few years, isn't made of the cheapest plastic you've ever seen, and can be used to play old casual games (60fps+ on Gmod / Source, low-mid...

    Thread: Coupons!

    Yep, too expensive for what it is now. Quality has been going down and prices up. This is the second time in the last several months that prices have increased. They've been getting stingy with their...

    Thread: Coupons!

    Pizza Hut have been stingier lately. Prices have gone up, promotions are gone, and coupons are few and far between. Their online deals aren't exactly amazing.

    Thread: Coupons!

    I agree. I've tried a number of combinations and nothing works. I suspect someone finally realised they were shifting more free garlic breads than they were receiving feedback. :p

    Thread: iPhone owners thread - [No Trolls]

    Is it still worth getting an iPhone SE at this point, if I can find a deal?

    The rumour mill suggests Apple is going to shake up their iPhone lineup with some new phones soon but that an SE 2 is...

    Thread: Christchurch/SI Earthquake Thread

    Yeah, haven't felt a wobble like that since earlier this year. Is it considered an aftershock still? A foreign flatmate just asked me and I wasn't sure.

    Thread: What do you think of AI in cars?

    You speak of this like it is a problem, but it isn't.

    As humans, we drive vehicles by following predefined roads and landmarks using our sensory organs. The processes are comparable. There is...

    Thread: PUBG Corp files copyright claim against Epic Games' Fortnite

    Doesn't surprise me. I'm sure Brendan Greene is all for this. He has a hypocritical and twisted view on how ideas in games should have protection, despite how heavily he borrowed from other creative...

    Thread: AMD FX Cant even play 4K?

    The AMD FX range is a bit woeful honestly. The FX7500 is a very mediocre offering for a laptop in 2018.

    I like AMD but I wouldn't touch anything pre-Ryzen anymore, unless you're going for cheap...

    Thanks for the help so far.

    Thread: Est cost for fixing brake hoses in a car?

    Hi there,

    WOF failed. Got told both rear brake hoses cracked and a wheel bearing is too noisy.

    Any thoughts on what the typical cost to fix is? Obviously I contacted a local auto repair place...

    Thread: kidney stone megathread

    My understanding is that poor diet (high salt, high meat consumption) and not staying adequately hydrated (with clean water) will put you at risk. I think your genetic background can play a part, and...
