In the late 1970's, I went on a school trip to Trawsfynnydd power station in Snowdonia.
No "interesting" activity going on while we were there, but they still had us stick our hands in the detectors on the way out.
Interestingly, it seems that Boris is now talking about building new reactors at both sites.
Sadly, it seems that Renault have replaced the 12-inch infotainment screen mentioned in the article, with a 9-inch version on all UK spec trim levels.
They've also removed the "smart" digital rear view mirror that is absolutely essential, given the ultra-widescreen proportions of the rear glass.
TL;DR - Will not be buying one.
I work in a 4-person 3D CAD (Colouring And Drawing) office.
Nvidia has this month EOL'd our graphics cards (Quadro K2200) which were installed in our Dell PCs at great expense.
We got the bean counters to authorise a huge performance upgrade to A4000 cards, but they require extra power cables.
Guess what our 2018 Optiplex 7050 workstations don't have?
Now the bean counters are dragging their feet over replacing 4 complete PCs, which would cost around twice as much as the 4 graphics cards alone.
That's called a "REx" - Range Extender.
The latest version of the traditional London Black Cab (LEVC TX5) is a REx, with a 63 mile electric range.
The BMW i3 electric car used to be available as a REx version, but they stopped making it due to recurring fault issues with the generator.
Isn't it interesting how this happened just as a whistleblower came forward on Facebook policies.
Anyone still remember that? Anyone? Beuller? Anyone?
I do wonder how much has been "accidentally deleted" during the downtime.
Is anyone else waiting for this event to appear on El Reg's "Who Me?" thread?
