4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Effort, 26 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent attempt to put the whole complex, hideously messy piece of history that we call WW1 into layman-speak. On the whole it works pretty well. As such, I REALLY hope it's read by the young folk of our world. Especially if it helps them gain an interest in, and start to understand, what the world went through 100 years ago; and how important it is that the mistakes made then are learned from, and not repeated.

If this book helps that process, then I can forgive the mis-spellings, poor grammar, omissions and minor mistakes in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive story of the FE2, 3 July 2009
Fantastic book - I'm wel limpressed. If you want to know ANYTHING about the FE2, this is the book for you. Also you get the story of night bombing in 1917/18 thown in, as that's what these planes were mainly used for later inthe war.
Seriously recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best wired keyboard, 12 April 2009
This has got to be simply the best "simple" keyboard out there. Robust, excellent straightforward design and a wonderful "feel" to the keys. Just spot on. Why pay more than a few quid for a keyboard? Try this one and you'll know!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Great - for a while!!, 8 Feb. 2009
I'm a self-employed PC Support Bloke, and have now installed about a dozen of these little fellows. The experience so far is like this: once you work out how you're supposed to set them up (as opposed to how they say they should be set up) they install dead easy.

Switch your main router OFF, plug the wireless end of the kit into a wallpoint near your laptop, set your laptop's IP address manually to 192.168.0.X and use an unencrypted SSID of NETGEAR. You'll then connect fine (no confusion with the router's wireless) and can change the SSID, IP (don't go for DHCP - set it static and MAKE A NOTE OF IT!) and encryption to suit your existing wireless config. Plug in the other (wired) end of the kit, connect to the router and power everthing back up. It's important to power stuff up in the right order - router, then wired extender, then wireless extender.

Potential gotchas:

1 - make sure your house only has one fuseboard / distribution board - this wont work across multiple boards.
2 - beware badly earthed electrics - this will provide erratic connectivity and much confusion.
3 - beware table lights (or similar kit) sharing a double socket or gang - these things generate enough electonic interference to baffle the Luftwaffe.
4 - If you have a power cut, remember to re-boot kit in the right order manually after everything pops back into life - router, wired extender, wireless extender.

In my experience with these things, once you've got them set up they work fine - for a while. It's a great thing that these chaps come with a three year warranty, because I've used that feature A LOT. Gawd only knows how Netgear make any money out of this kit - I haven't had one installation where I haven't had to replace the wireless end at least once. They run hot and just fry.

Verdict - excellent idea, NOT well implemented. If you aren't a serial returns freak, don't bother.

A solution that works for me (with the same electronic caveats), but nothing like as neat, is a pair of XE102 wired extenders plus a separate wireless access point. Costs about the same - works reliably.
