5.0 out of 5 stars Great Halogen replacements, 15 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these to replace 50w halogens and they are great. Could not tell the difference between these and existing halogens.
Have had them in for a few months now with no problems. They worked fine with my existing transformers (although from what I've read this depends on the type/brand of transformer that you have).

Notice that these are temporally unavailable due to a complaint about their description - hope that Amazon bring them back soon as I've found them to be excellent value for money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the F1 fan that wants to know more, 14 Aug. 2011
I've been an F1 fan for over two decades and this is the best and most readable explanation of how an F1 car works that I've come across. Nicely presented, lots of photos and generally very clear explanations of how the aerodynamics and mechanical aspects of an F1 car works together with an overview of design and how a race weekend plays out. It's about the 2010 Red Bull but I suspect that almost all the content is equally applicable to any of the top teams. If you're a Ferrari or McLaren fan, don't be put off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any car enthusiast, 16 Feb. 2010
If you are a car enthusiast or know a car enthusiast, I can't recommend this film enough. It is a very personal account of Eric Bana's life long obsession with his 1970s Australian muscle car. After years of tinkering he finally has it rebuilt as an out and out racing car so that he can enter it in a five day endurance race in Tasmania. More than any other film or documentary that I've seen this really gets to the essence of what makes people love their cars. It is also a great "Aussie" film with many entertaining characters, not the least of which is Eric himself. In particular, if you are a fan of Top Gear you are really going to enjoy this. An essential part of any car enthusiast's DVD collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars The Return of the Economic Naturalist is a disappointment, 29 Jun. 2009
I much enjoyed Robert H Frank's earlier book "The Economic Naturalist". Unfortunately this sequel fails to live up to expectations. It consists of a series of often very similar articles linked together with some recent commentary and explanation. The content is very repetitive and many of the examples and analogies are used in multiple articles. While this would not be such a problem if the articles were read over the long period of time during which they were originally written, once they are condensed into a single book the lack of variety becomes all too obvious.

Also, the book is very focussed on US domestic issues, which while no doubt relevant for US readers may well detract from the enjoyment of those from outside the US.

Overall, there is simply not enough variety and originality to sustain the 250 or so pages and one is left wondering whether re-printing a series of existing newspaper articles was not simply an easy way to produce a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Windows Home Server, 19 April 2008
Windows Home Server is aimed at anybody with 2 or more PCs in a home network. It basically allows you to do three things:

1. Backup all your PCs
2. Act as a central repository of files
3. Allow you to access your files remotely

With minor tweaking it can also act as a printer server and host websites - it is absurdly simply to set up websites with your photos on them using a freely available addin.

Over the years I've tried various strategies for backing up and trying to remotely access files - all with little success. My experience with a WD MyBook World Edition was disappointing to say the least as the system was cumbersome, unreliable and the hard drive packed it in 18 months after purchase.

However, I've been using Windows Home Server for 3 months or so and I've found it to be reliable and by far the most effective solution to the problem of regular back-ups and central storage.

There are two ways to approach this - by a server with WHS installed or build your own system with this OEM version.

My suggestion (and what I did) is get the evaluation version of WHS. This gives you 120 days to experiment. Get some old hardware (the specs are low so almost anything will do), put together a system and give it a try.

If it works for you, then perhaps get some more up to date hardware and the OEM version and give it a go.

There has been alot of discussion about the 'corruption' bug which can cause a loss of data. I haven't had a problem and my understanding is that this is only a problem with multi-drive systems. So, I've just gone with one 750GB drive for the moment. When the problem is hopefully fixed in a month or two, I'll add more storage then.

There is no doubt that this is early days for WHS and there are some issues around but I haven't found a simpler, more flexible and reliable solution yet.
