A kitten, and a nest thermostat. The two are unrelated though.

Re: What have you just bought?

Only toiletries from Superdrugs. Nothing very exciting in the department stores for something to wear, Rails and rails of sales but not worth buying any

I do it every year with RAC, i shop at Tesco every week as well with my petrol and also use a Tesco Credit Card to pay for everything which also gives points, so it is easy to get points.

I have 36 of points on my Nectar car, thanks to a fortnightly fill up at BP and double/treble point bonuses on fuel builds up.

I just bought a 1TB Samsung Portable SSD T5, to go in my camera bag.


I need a bigger camera bag as the one my dad gave is too small to carry all my current kit, and so I've been advised by the camera bods at work look at Lowpro.

So I'll get one when I see one I like, along woth a Nikon 105mm Macro lens.

Re: What have you just bought?

A two Terabyte HDD to upgrade my desktop PC. The 1/2T data drive is bursting at the seams with HD movies and TV series as well as my ripped music CD collection and photo library.

I've backed all the sub 4.3 GByte files to a portable 1T USB drive that I use with the laptop and the Smart TV and now just need to copy several larger files temporarilly to the system SSD. (The PC only has 2 SATA ports)

Unfortunately the PC only has USB 2 (480 mbs) so I've calculated that it will take almost 6 days to copy the whole lot back to the new disk. At least it's only a single command to do it so I can just leave it running. PC is on 24/7 as I use it as a media server as well as for work stuff.

Re: What have you just bought?

Could you disconnect the SSD and connect up the new HD?

Then boot from a live Linux distro and copy the data between the 2 HD's.

Re: What have you just bought?

I guess that's a way of doing it faster but I'm half way there already so I'll stick with it. Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm going to have to think about a new build soon as this machine is rather long in the tooth though still quite capable.
