  1. I've tried and failed to find an online calculator for income tax and National Insurance payments and at what point it is deducted when there are two people involved, 50/50. I have a found, for example, the following calculator when self employed/sole trader but I'm not sure if I can use it to calculate a 50/50 partner split. https://www.employedandselfemployed.co.uk/self-employed-tax-calculator If I have the following numbers, could I use the above calculator if I either split the income and outgoings before calculating or input the totals and split it in two after calculating?
  2. I'd seen those before and just thought they were some sort of cheapo, infomercial type product, however, I'll have a look into. I do suspect that the overall diameter will prevent me from using it as the nuts are very close to the manifold pipes. I've also found 'Metrinch' that bears on the flats and not the corners. Thanks for the idea. Tom.
  3. I'm trying to remove the last three nuts from my Zafira B manifold/catalyst combo and unfortunately they are stuck and I can feel them starting to give on the corners. Is there an alternative socket design (I'm using a standard 10mm hex socket) that will have better purchase on the nut, maybe a socket that applies pressure to the flats? Would a suitably sized Torx socket work? I've also heard of 'Milli Inch' sockets that work on both mm and inch fasteners and apply pressure to the flats but I can't find any trace of them. Do you know of them, have I got the name right? Any ideas?
  4. Ok, thanks for the reassurance. Tom.
  5. Today I received a sexy email, see below. Not overly concerned but that is my principle email it came to and the password was assigned to a website I'm signed up to (www.kitmaker.net). I have changed the password to that website. What else should I be concerned about? Tom. p.s. their claim is only partially true, I only have a webcam connected for Skype. Lawrence Martin <Quinn@asidd.com> I know M*********** is one of your password on day of hack.. Lets get directly to the poin
  6. Unfortunately that's out of my field of expertise, however, would it explain why I didn't get an email for your latest reply, in this thread, but I received an email notification for this thread, which comes under all new post notifications in the Tech section: Cheers, Tom
  7. Nice One. I'll have a look at Farnells and maybe put a couple in parallel. Cheers, Tom.
  8. Also, no notification for this THREAD and your reply to this very thread. Tom.
  9. That's cool. Yes, I'm only running an 18:1, 1Joule set up. Where did you get your parts from? I'm having trouble finding large Amperage components and so far have only found a 10A rated part. Do they do 15 or 20Amp as a single component? Tom.
  10. This has been a long running problem, I think, but since I've been out of airsoft I've let it slide. For some reason, even though I'm following loads of threads with 'instant notification', I do not get anything to my email. This morning, I received an email for this THREAD because I'm signed up to a general notification in the Tech section. That's fine, however, this is contradicted by the fact I have not received notification for my THREAD in the Tech section for which I have set to instant notification. This, from vague memory is not the first time. Any ideas? Tom.
  11. Just wondered whether anyone has tried this? Can you simply drop them in as a replacement for the original and will they react in same fashion, faster or slower? Thanks, Tom.
  12. I been messing about and bought a new grip and I might be able to sandwich a Micro2 fuse down between the motor can and the grip wall. If not then i might just ditch it and watch my trigger discipline if something acts up. Cheers, Tom.
  13. Even though I use a car blade fuse in the stock tube I still want to make more room for my Lipo and plugs. Can I move the fuse to the negative side of the battery and in my case have it attached to the 'source', or maybe the 'drain' depending on fitment, and still have the fuse do its job as if it were connected to the positive? Cheers, Tom.
  14. Ok, this problem is back and probably the only reason I know it still is a problem is because I'm currently discussing an active topic that I created. In any case, whether it was resolved or not, I am not getting instant notification to my email at all so far. For instance, if I use THIS thread as an example, which I recently created, I have it set to instant notification of replies and I've also checked that my email is up to date. I have, however, received no reply notifications to my email at all. Any fix? Tom.
  15. Gents, Maybe a re-installation is the way to go, somewhat annoying, but hey. I'll look into the other options as well. Cheers.
  16. I've searched and searched and I've found nothing concrete, why does PUBG keep randomly crashing to desktop, multiple times during a game? Everything is up to date, I've tried messing with the graphics but to no avail. From what I've heard it is happening across all computer specs but I've not found a rock solid fix. Anyone have the answer? Tom.
  17. My Asus ROG Strix B350-F Gaming has one area of fixed LED's, on the chipset, and one extension header. Both are controlled by the same software but only operate as one. You can not have one type of light show on the chipset and another on the header extension, however, read on. See below for the Asus Aura control panel. You can certainly turn them all off, top right of control panel, but there is no option for dimming, unless you get an an add-on LED controller like those all over Ebay and Aliexpress and power it off the 12V header/PSU/USB. This add-on controller would also allow you t
  18. Everything is fine, however, I've run into a couple of hiccups. First, is as described below, and the second is Battlefield 1 related and I'll get into that later. Ok, after the install I sorted the partitions to be as follows: Operating System © ggrrrr, Games (D) and Everything Else (G) - C and D on my SSD and G on my HDD. However, after the install, a disk 'F' appeared on my SSD and has the same or similar folders as my 'C' drive, and I don't know why. From some searching this would appear to be normal and unavoidable, however, other people's 'F' disk only seems to take up a few hund
  19. Just to cap this off, I have bought all the components, some have arrived and still waiting on others. Oh, and wouldn't you know it but Sod's law reared it's head and my Enermax PSU died so I've had to buy a new one, see below. The list is as follows: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 GPU: XFX RX 580 Black Edition 8Gb Mobo: Asus Rog Strix B350-F Gaming RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 5, 8Gb x 2(16Gb), 15-15-15-35 (F4-2400C15D-16GVR) PSU: Corsair HX750 SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250Gb OS: Windows 10 Home (Retail) Monitor: ViewSonic XG2401 (144Hz, 1ms, TN) Budget definately blown! Tom.
  20. Lone, There are significant cost implications if I were to go that route. 8Gb Ram + RX580 = €345.40 16Gb Ram + RX480 = €461.00 approx The price difference comes from the 480 being 8Gb and the 580 being 4Gb and, of course, double the Ram. Are you saying I should be investing in a 144Hz monitor? Tom.
  21. I already have an Enermax 600W and the calculators say I am well within the limits. Tom.
  22. Ok, I think I'm going to go with the following: CPU: Intel i5 7600K GPU: Sapphire RX 580 MB: Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 RAM: Corsair CMK8GX4M2B3000C15 SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250Gb OS: Windows 10 Home (Non OEM) Monitor: Samsung S24F350FHU (Freesync, yes, but only 60Hz - compromises) Any final thoughts, the monitor spec for instance? Tom.
  23. Ok, thanks. Just watched a video review for W10, I don't dislike it. Just to stay on the W10 theme for a moment, has Microsoft changed it's attitude to the chopping and changing of hardware when using OEM W10? I've just read on Tom's Hardware that you can now use the same OEM W10 from one machine to another. Can anyone confirm that? Tom.
