Re: Car Tyres

Don’t know about wear Greg but I suppose it depends on how you drive and how much power you put through them. I’m not too worried about wear as I do little mileage these days, real use ratings here: http://www.tyrereviews.co.uk/Tyre/Miche ... limate.htm

Re: Car Tyres

Recently had a pair of Michelin Crossclimate tyres fitted to the wife’s car, not cheap but boy they are good, quiet and loads of grip in the wet. I was impressed enough to get a pair fitted to the front of my car, both cars are front wheel drive, better than the Hankook and Continental tyres they re...

Re: picoreplayer

By accident found out that airplaying to piecoreplayer from an iPad triggers something that’s causes it to play music slow when you switch back to iPeng.

Re: picoreplayer

Really odd issue with piecoreplayer yesterday, music was playing slow, like a 45 record at 33.3rpm. Restarting squeezelite made no difference, power cycling the DAC made no difference, rebooting the RPi made no difference. My squeezebox radio was fine as was my office SBmk2. I did a full update of s...
