  1. Mocking up a desktop application window?

    I need to redesign a Qt application and would like to mock up the main window (I forget the buzzword bingo name for single Vs multi window applications). Adding a fixed toolbar, menu, and main window layout as well as popup/tool windows that are linked to buttons. It's the sort of thing I've...

  2. VPNs - how more secure?

    I'm on a VPN at the moment, in a coffee shop, and apart from spoofing my location (good for accessing streaming apps that have location restrictions) and causing Gmail to have a hissy fit and block my email access because it thinks I'm somewhere else, I can't quite get my head around how more...

  4. Using an old mobile number

    Looking at options to keep an old mobile phone number active. Currently it's in an old iPhone (which needs regular charging), on Three's PAYG (321) so I just top up maybe once a year and it's peanuts to keep.

  5. OSX and FileVault

    My 2011 MBP has finally given up the ghost, heroically finally succumbing to a cup of coffee being spilt over it and frying the logic board (itís wiv da angles now).

  8. Docker, when to use it?

    I've watched a course on Docker, even use it at the current client. But I'm struggling to see what problems it solves. I'm not being critical it's probably that I've not experienced the issues that docker solves. In the real world of software development/deployment when does it really become...

  9. Embedded SQL, is it ESQL or E/SQL ?

    I had a notion that the standard accepted abbreviation for Embedded SQL was E/SQL. Although I'm not sure the internet agrees with me. Which do you think it is? TIA.

  19. How important/useful is dual-bay (RAID1 mirror) in a home NAS, with cloud backup?

    I'm finally set (I think) on Synology for the long-anticipated NAS we want primarily to centralise MP3s (for chrome-cast around the house) but will also use as a generic central dump for photos, videos and any files we want to keep accessible and/or backed up. I'm pretty sure we might splash out...

    Rather than carry a raft of cables with me, do the 3-1 cables work? If so, what's the best? I don't mind whether it is this sort of thing: Core 3-in-1 Lightning / Micro USB / USB-C 1m Cable - White or something like this: USB Multi-Charging Cable - Lightning, USB-C, Micro-USB | StarTech.com...
