LOL ... No, they aren't exactly the same. If they were exactly the same, you would have linked to an external unit, just like Amazon is...

You've linked to a bare drive, which is $644 + delivery from Amazon! Apples and Oranges taste horrible together for most!

Maybe they thinks it's a convenience thing. Even with auto-recharge disabled, you can still recharge in your account without having to...

I didn't realise how useful the inflator tool would be, so just got the basic item direct from 4WD Supa Centre. When I went to get the...

I hear you on this! Bluetooth headphones are really bad for this. A warning every 30 seconds, as if everyone can get to a charger the...

Not sure I'd want to risk so much data with only 1 parity disk though. I suppose it depends on what you're storing. If it's just p0rn and...

Are you sure it's not the payment processor the companies you are trying to buy from are using? A lot of businesses don't deal direct with...

That's also true. There was really no need to post the story at all. Posting pics of the damage was really all that was required for...

Not sure why it's been made private. Perhaps OP gave out more information than necessary to have their question answered, and is now...

This response tells us you are somewhat aware of the vagaries of RAM. When purchasing things that may or may not work, it's the part number...

I have no issues with you posting the deal. Even dodgy companies can have a deal worth posting. I was just giving my personal experience.

Just a shout-out on my experience with this mob. I use Newsleecher v3.9 Beta5, which is very old, but I prefer it over the newer free v7.0...

I also ran a BBS, and realised I could get 650MB of storage for around $500 around the same time. That meant buying a CD-ROM drive and...

Ahhh yes ... but if you were a better driver ... definitely partially your fault!! Yep. Believe it or not, idiots like bobbified believe...

I had a guy in my block of flats who did this. He'd buy shit boxes, rust buckets, etc. and spend heaps of time fixing them up. He was on a...

Yeah ... the post I replied to was edited. He was talking about the car not being insured, but the person. One can only speculate why the...

Ummm ... if a car doesn't have insurance, why do most decent insurers cover other people who drive the car? If the insurance was taken to...
