Sex, Lies and Handlebar Tape: The Remarkable Life &hellip by Paul Howard
The Kindle edition earns a one-star rating from me because it contains no photographs whatsoever. I haven't seen the printed edition of the book, but the author mentions in the Acknowledgements that he has been allowed to use photographs supplied by his interviewees, by a press agency, and also made some himself. So where are they? Not one has made it into the Kindle edition! The publisher hasn't even included the front cover photograph of Anquetil signing that nice young lady's thigh. This is appalling behaviour by the publisher.

I've only read the first few chapters so far, so I can't really comment on the book as a work of biographical history. However I'm finding the… Read more
StarTech 2 Port Flush Mount ExpressCard 54mm Super&hellip by STARTECH.COM
The drivers for this device seem to be a little unstable, or conflict with some other Windows subsystem or driver. My laptop is a Dell Precision Workstation M90 running Win7 Ultimate Edition 32-bit, and with this card plugged in Windows frequently pauses for anything up to a minute at a time (or maybe it just feels like a minute?).

Image quality is acceptable, though the camera's colour balance is terrible and can't be adjusted - strong greens appear as pink!

The web-based control software works well enough (try tinyCam Monitor if you're using an Android tablet).

Networking: The camera works fine on a wired LAN, but the wireless LAN feature simply doesn't work with a WPA/WPA2 secured network. I can get it to connect for a few seconds when powered up, then the connection drops out and won't come back on until you cycle the power. It may work with WEP, but I didn't test it.

Power supply: Should have a longer lead, the 1-metre lead is just short enough that you can only place the camera… Read more
