Yeah they're very thin, I want Vodafone to stop fucking up my insurance claim and giz it. I am getting it for $125 so I'm being a little bit patient.

Bought a huawei to get me through, had ver 2.2 on it, didn't realise how much android changed when it changed gradually, huawei boot looped at only three weeks old too so it didn't get me through.

There's Ubuntu phones with a dock that you kb/mouse/monitor into so your phone is a portable computer.

I hated sense when I first got my desire hd, I was like what the fuck is all this shit but it grew on me some of it was quite handy. Mate gave me a hoon on his galaxy s3 last year with CM on it, not sure what version. It was pretty HTC like in my opinion having only a galaxy s2 to compare it to.

That is awesome. My sis-in-law has pics of Micheal J throwing the goats while boating down Wellies. Bitch got to visit the set from the final scenes of Braindead too, pretty jelly.

I was running wifi at home using a wifi card, but it was pretty shitty for gaming, so on a mates recommendation I got a PowerLine kit as well. Basically modulates your AC currents so you can connect any room to your network just by plugging one of these into a wall outlet. Pretty nifty, would recommend.

That's the speedtest for wired and PowerLine, there's no discernible latency. I've got the 200Mbps kit, you can buy 500Mbps sets for a bit more, but seeing as I don't transfer large files around my home LAN or even stream to my TV I decided the extra speed would be completely useless.

Idk, the length of my house.. maybe 30m? obv the length of the actual power wiring is way longer. Was pretty effortless to set up. I think I remember xpigx telling me he was running the same system a few years back?
