Been a while since I've jumped on this forum but I remember it always having some very good audio advice. Anyway. My friend has just bought a Mac 27". Thingy. Don't know much about Macs. Whatever. I've just talked him out of buying some Bose thing and whatnot and now I need some help spending some of his money. He has a budget of about £400. He wants an amp (ideally with a small footprint) and a set of bookshelf speakers. Simples. I've been doing a bit of research for...
Nope. It's an s3 and I was on a train It's also interesting to note that a lot of folks ask for a phone based on specs. It's nice to see more research being done on the consumers part before they come in and ask. Otherwise hey, that's what I'm there for This whole carrier unlocking noise in the US boggles my mind. What most UK retailers do is just sell an unlocked mobile and pair a carrier sim up with it. My s3 is on o2 however it's totally unlocked and it came that way...
Double post sorry. Replying from a phone and my signal is balls.
I work in one of the UK phone shops. I don't work on commission either so I don't earn an extra dime if I sell a £45 contract vs a £10 one. The demand is purely influenced by the price where I work. We have some very good iphone deals, I'd be tempted to say the best, but we still sell far more s3s because people don't want the insane contracts that come with the Apple products, or those high handset costs. I've noticed a lot of people asking for Samsung android devices...
Apologies for the slow reply. Work keeps me busy...I won't be bothering with a PC based VPN, the router itself will be the VPN server. But thanks for the input. I'm hoping it all goes smoothly. I'm probably going to drop my money on a new router at some point during work tomorrow anyway so it gives me something to do on my next day off.I just wanted to know if what I described was possible but all indicators seem to be pointing towards yes. That my friend is an expensive...
Hello everybody. As some of you know I'm studying towards a CCNA. Thanks for those of you who posted advice in the thread. Anyway, I'm looking to upgrade the router at home and had a few ideas to compliment it, namely having a bash at creating a VPN as it doesn't seem particularly hard to do with your average router. I'm looking to purchase a Billion 7800 series but I thought I'd ask a couple of questions here first. I'll say what I've got at the moment and then what...
This sounds like it could be a good amount of fun! I don't live near by, I live in Cardiff myself, however with any luck I will be in a new job by that time and might be able to find a place to stay! However if you fancy moving it to Cardiff or perhaps Bristol...
Apologies on not getting back to this thread sooner! I've been away a lot and while I like reading forums and news updates on my phone, the thought of typing a long reply on it filled me with dread and I've yet to invest in a tidy bluetooth keyboard. And yes we remember Compuserv. They used to provide our dialup in the 90s. Thanks for all the replies and bits of advice. The more I read into where this line of work can take me, the more excited I get. I sometimes forget...
Yeah, typical catch 22 scenario you've described. Need experience to get the job, but need a job to get experience. I was thinking bulking out with the CCNA tracks like you suggested and in time, perhaps in a year or so it might be fun to attempt the CCNP tracks. Wireless was just an example. I started with the R&S track simply because it was the biggest and covered all the fundamentals of the field at hand. Also just seemed a nice place to start! Wireless is just...
I only ask because I passed my Cisco CCENT yesterday. I know it's only a small step of many, many more but I didn't really know where else to share it beyond a forum of techie people as only one of my friends actually understand all this stuff. The rest of them just use me for tech questions like where HDMI cables go. (We've all got friends like that...) I've got an unusual educational history too, I've got lots of music qualifications and a 2:1 degree in Geography of...
