I am thinking of getting a new router for my home / office.  Performance at longish distance (20m) is the key feature I am looking for.
I am considering:
a) Asus AC2400 RT-AC87U Dual-band Wireless Gigabit Router
b) Netgear R7000 Nighthawk Smart AC1900 Wi-Fi Router

Any personal recommendation appreciated.

Thanks Paul, I ended up getting a BT Hub 5 router; it's OK.

Good explaination
Sometimes, an entire PowerShell command can't fit comfortably on a line. That's especially true when you're blogging, or writing books.

They are particularly good at packing valuable and delicate items.

Create PowerShell Function Get-Ipconfig. I designed this cmdlet style function to display IPv4, IPv6 or MAC addresses.

Just a note to say that when experimenting with the Shell setting in the Winlogon section of the registry I set it to exporer.exe.  All I got was a black screen.  There was a happy ending, Ctrl +Shift +Esc brought up the task manager, from there I launched regedit and corrected my typo to explorer.

Dear Graeme

Answering individual questions is too time consuming, best to post your question in the stackoverflow.com forum

I bought a Surface 2 Pro, I would say that I am satisfied, rather than thrilled.  I have a question: I am looking for a battery life tile - any suggestions?

I am thinking of buying a Windows 8.1 tablet computer.  Do you have any recommendations?  'Which' magazine favour the Samsung Galaxy, is there anything better?

I really enjoyed creating this function to find the local browse master.  Handy for troubleshooting latency problems on small networks

Windows 8.1 "Blue"

If you strip away the hype, "Blue" represents a new dawn in Microsoft's service packs.  Gone are the old style SP1 and SP2, in their place will be more regular update packages that introduce new features as well as fix imperfections in the Windows 8 Apps and GUIs.

Some commands are just plain fun and satisfying to use.  Try PowerCfg -Energy, especially useful if you have a laptop.
