If you follow his USB advice, don't forget to buy a hammer and a pair of pliers at the same time.

Active is better but more 'spensive...  whistle:

Depending on the device to be connected, passive leads don't work over certain lengths...

Why do USB plugs never ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, (recurring) fit the socket when you try and push them in?  Banghead

Then you turn them over ‘cos they must be upside down and they still don’t fit so you turn them back up the way they were originally then they fit!  cussing:


Happens to me too! Why is that?
It's just a wanky design!  cussing:

Yes, yes. Of course. ::)
Nick can't do it either!  point:





 rubschin:

Hang on Barman, you are using Captain Calamity as an excuse for your own cack handedness, claiming that it is a design flaw?

Have you been sampling the homebrew before it's ready again?
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
