Happy Birthday George, (although it might be belated now).  :beers:.  Even sadder thought - I was there in 2021!

You should worry, @Bealman (may I call you George?) . I'll be gatecrashing the list soon and I will still be 4 years older than you!

Happy birthday!  :beers:  :beers:

Computer Help / Re: Contemporary Battery Drain

For hours of "off the grid" power for a laptop I'd suggest a 12V lead-acid leisure battery and a 12V to 240V mains inverter as used by caravaners everywhere. Add a solar powered charger and you should be OK even in extended power cuts.

Alternatively, if the power's off get out a good book.

@ten0G do you need a laptop? A small desktop PC and large monitor would be better value for money.

Buying a laptop focused on battery capacity for the very odd occasion you may have a power cut which lasts longer than the battery life seems a bit unnecessary to me. Given the internet wonít work in a power cut anyway, it just becomes a slight distraction for a bit. And what if itís not fully charged when thereís a power cut? You canít leave it plugged in the whole time, the battery will be toast.



If you've got fibre internet and have the router plugged into a UPS (see my previous post), it'll stay online usually. Not so sure about copper based internet, but IIRC phone lines have to have independent power so the phones would still work in power cuts.

George it could be worse, according to the list yorkie08shunter who is next to you is 1997 years old, now that is some going, who does he think he is Dr Who.

Well it's obvious, then. There's a glitch in the forum software and (70) is a mistake.  :)
