    I've used ClouDNS in the past https://www.cloudns.net/main/

    I use a fixed IP now (server in the Amazon cloud) but I recall that it dealt with IP address changes fairly painlessly. I used a three...

    I'm not a Windows person at all, but it's worth checking whether the two different interfaces have different DNS servers assigned to them. In any case a hosts file setting should (I think) override...

    So the match wasn't abandoned. I'm not sure what would have happened to the result, or the presumed result if the game had been abandoned part-way through the match, but I hope and assume it wouldn't...

    Well - in the couple of times in the last few years that I've had a broken watch of no substantial value, I've given it away on Sales Corner to give someone who knows what they're doing a chance to...

    Absolutely lovely, and everything about it suggests that it's designed for activities like swimming, arguably excepting its replacement cost.

    I don't like date windows; I like the simplicity of a watch that just tells the time. However, I do like a cyclops on a Rolex; it's just part of the trademark 'look'. So - since a cyclops to magnify...

    No. It was a small scratch, right at the edge of the crystal. And it was very faint when it came back from the service. This was in 1994 or 1995, don't know whether scratched crystal policy has...

    The tuning fork symbol on the Bulova actually means that it's pre-quartz, an "Accutron" electronic watch. Unless Bulova continued to use that symbol as a sort of generic trademark, but I didn't think...

    Your analogy might hold if it was illegal for pubs to stay open after 9pm. In the case of mud on roads there is a legitimate expectation that those responsible will clear it up, because that's what...

    ^ Ooh that's nice.


    Wearing my dad's old Certina today. Running at +3 per day, not bad for a 40+ yr old watch.

    My basic strategy is not to tell 'er indoors when I buy a watch of any significant value. I have so many watches that an unfamiliar watch is never going to pique her curiosity.

    Are you doing your speed tests cabled direct into the router? Otherwise other local / environmental factors could be an influence.

    .. and of course - on the line.

    Sad to hear, liked them a lot back in the day. Always thought of Barrie Masters as a sort of high energy, pocket Mick Jagger.

    Fair point. True also of a number of G Shocks and similar that are a fraction of a price of this one, though. And in 10-15 years one of these will probably seem as usable as a Palm Pilot does today.

    28 hrs in GPS mode (I read elsewhere, albeit that's the "athlete" version). That's certainly impressive and desirable, but yes - that's an eye-watering, wallet-frightening asking price.

    My mother-in-law was forgetful ever since I met her in 2007 or so, when she was in her early '70s. She'd often ask the same question twice in the...
