    W10 Mail App

    Hi guys, I upgraded to windows 10 recently and loving it, but the mail app is crap compared to W8.1 It doesn't show that I have new mail on the tile. And I have having to click accounts to go to my other email accounts. I'm also not getting notifications even though it's turned on. Any recommendations for a new mail app? Cheers

    New ADSL2+ Modem Router

    I'm going to have a play with the existing modem and see how I go. I know I won't need a broadcom chipped unit as I've read they are good for long lines and the new place is only 900m from the exchange. Going to be nice, considering my place now is 3.8km and we ended up ending our 24 month contract with iiNet free of charge because of dozens of dropouts every single day. I'm assuming I should be able to get 15mps+ on a line that short? Cheers.

    Thank you to everyone. We will be moving on Friday and hopefully everything goes to plan. You are all fantastic.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    I'd love to collect the Amiibos, but I think if I started soon I would be too late. I hear there are also Walmart and other store exclusives. That would make it even harder. Do you keep yours in the packaging or open them up?

    New ADSL2+ Modem Router

    Cheers guys. Looks like I need to do a bit more research and figure out the simplest way to do this. Thanks for all the info.

    I will be spending as much time as I can with the baby because I know those moments will be special and need to be cherished.

    New ADSL2+ Modem Router

    Hey guys, as some of you are aware I'm moving in with my girlfriends grandmother and her younger brother. The modem currently being used is a cheapie netgear I think and to me this just won't do. There will be 4 of us all using the internet. Mainly an ipod/ipad, tablet, smartphone and myself on the desktop. I'm wanting to be able to control as much as I can and have a good quality modem that's going to last and give me minimal headaches. My gf's brother is 13 and doesn't like to get off the ipod/ipad at bed time, so I'm wanting to be able to control the times his devices can access the internet (I have nan's approval for this.) I also want to control the bandwidth to each device if possible for when I'm gaming and the sites that 13 year old can access as he's discovered naughty websites. I'd also like something with good wifi range or something that I can easliy add an extnder or whatever later if we need a range boost. I'm assuming this is going to cost me $200 plus for a good modem which I can manage eventually and will be worth it for 13 year old to get some sleep and stay off the naughty websites. Cheers.

    It's going to be interesting. I love my sleep, so I think I may be a little grumpy while I get used to a lack of it.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Yeah people keep telling me that. Hopefully our natural parenting kicks in after the birth.

    Thank you. We are both nervous about being parents, but I'm pretty sure that's normal.

    Looking forward to watching this. Might have to wait until the DVD is out though. Loved breaking bad.
