    Today was the morning where everyone wanted to squeeze up the left hand side of me at traffic lights. One lass did it repeatedly so she could trundle through the red light despite me leaving an ever-decreasing gap at each light and one lad thought that belting through a little gap at full speed just as the lights changed and everyone else was just about to set off was a good idea.

    Someone (who I assume was on here) told me that there was free police, bike marking at Finsbury Park which was convenient as I'd just been looking to get it done. Sadly though I was late for work so had to pass it up, need to find out when they'll be doing it again and get my arse out of bed earlier.

    I've tried the generic wi-fi extenders before and had issues with devices sticking with the weaker wi-fi rather than being passed on to the stronger connection. I was hoping a system using the Ubiquiti APs exclusively may deal with this better.

    I hadn't considered power-line adapters plugged into the AP. I have used them in the past and they weren't great (old electrics) but the technology may have moved on. I also had the very weird issue that I was initially connecting to a network 2 doors down (I knew this because I could access their NAS and see documents stored on there) which made me somewhat wary of them.

    Maybe I'll give them another try and see, I've had a new consumer unit fitted since last time I tried which may make a difference.

    What are the recommendations for extending wi-fi without running cabling? Now that my back room is a study rather than bedroom the "just about works" wi-fi isn't fast enough.

    Ideally something that merges/extends the current system rather than a separate SSD. Can adding another Ubiquiti AP do this or do they all need to be wired. Some stuff online suggests that this should work but info on the Ubiquiti website is scarce.

    OnePlus 3T allows both sims to be active at once and you can turn sims on and off individually. I assume other models are similar.

    Southampton getting knocked out of the FA cup gives Burnley a pretty good chance of getting into Europe next season. Need 4 points from our next 3 games to confirm it definitely.

    Need to look into booking some Thursdays off.

    It's probably not a huge issue. Depends how paranoid you are, how sensitive the stuff on your NAS, etc is (confidential work stuff where you may get sued if there's a breach or just a collection of 80s sitcoms), how strong the passwords are to protect them and so on. If you're in a block of flats with 20 flats able to pick up your wi-fi or above a pub or something it may be more of an issue than if you're in a house.

    Personally I have them all on the same network so I can do stuff such as use my phone on wifi to control my HTPC which is wired.

    You can choose in the edge router settings whether each port on the router is a separate network or whether they're the same network.

    Everything on the same network is easiest in terms of wireless devices being able to access your NAS, PC, etc but obviously less secure in that wireless devices can access your NAS, PC, etc

    Whichever you go for, adding a foam Comply tip will keep the noise out a lot more.

    Just buy a bog standard one and mount it to a lump of wood seems the easy option.

    Top tip, skip the bar, buy some beer from Sainsbury's and just sit in the square.
