Pip Tomlinson on EU Free Roaming Decade Extension
I will continue to enjoy the benefits of this here in sunny Barcelona for the next 10 years! Though not so convenient when I pop back over to England to see the family! Also, a tip… You can buy a prepaid sim with 12gb of data here in Spain for 10 euros but DON’T do it at the airport! You will be charged €30 for a €10 sim, when there are hundreds of little mobile stores in Barcelona (and I presume other cities) where you can nip in and pick one up for a third of the price. You just have to show your passport.

Mike Robins on How to Stop Windows From Powering Off Your USB Devices
In a recent TechAddicts Podcast (26th June) there was a discussion about the Logitech MX Master 3 Mouse which would lose connection intermittently. I thought it worth reposting this reminder that often USB ports are ‘powered down’ by Windows – to save power, this behaviour can be turned off. So if anyone has a USB device that seems to go to sleep, it is worth checking that the USB ports / USB Hub are set to keep powered up at all times.
Hardline on the hardware:
