I have just "Powerlined" the house for our main devices as we had way too many things fighting over the Wifi (26 at a time on average - Sonos, Smart Home devices etc) - maybe not the most elegant solution but it's too late now :)

So I ended up with a mix of older 2nd hand 500Mbps Devolo gear, which is fine for the most part but I also snagged a couple of new TP-Link 1200 Triple port Gigabit Powerline adapters which I'm going to use for the higher bandwidth devices - Nvidia Shield / Gaming PC and a QNap NAS Box (which is connected directly to the router).

Question is, at the router end - is there any benefit / detriment to plugging 3 x network cables from the router to the triple adapter at the same time?

Slightly better than BT Infinity. Just downloaded and installed Battlefield 1 in 7 minutes :)

Hi, I'm sure this has been asked before but in all honesty I'm a tad drunk and couldn't see it when I did a quick search. I want to play videos on my Nvidia Shield TV but send the Audio to my Chromecast Audio group. Possible or not?

Ok, so my old, defunct Google For Work account which I deleted a few months back appears to still be subscribed and paying for Google Play Music #googlehelp #playmusic +Google Music

I tired to contact support who told me there was no such account (I know this, I deleted it!) but I've just had another Google Receipt for my monthly subscription.

Any ideas how I can stop this and hopefully get a refund as obviously I'm not using it as I can't even access it? :)

A friend went to Beijing recently and was given this brochure by the hotel. It is precious.
She is keeping it and reading it whenever she feels depressed.
Obviously, it has been translated directly, word for word from Mandarin to English.


Getting There:
Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests.

The Hotel:
This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self.

The Restaurant:
Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.

Your Room:
Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity! .. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts.

Bed:
Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.

Above All:
When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it.
