General discussion / Vaping
« on: Today at 01:13:50 PM »
Just wondering what the general consensus on vaping is? Some UK MPs pushing for a more widespread acceptance of vaping in public. It does seem to be getting a lot more popular in Ireland.

General discussion / Irish Business Thread
« on: January 26, 2018, 09:25:50 AM »
Not sure if there is something  on this already but thought a thread on Irish Business might get some decent interest on here. Couple of big stories in Northern Ireland at the minute with major job implications.

First one is the Bombardier dispute with the US over tariffs. The UK governments response was pathetic and does give an idea of just how little they care about this particular corner of the world DUP deal or not!

AES Kilroot announced this morning that they are going to have to close afetr failing to win a generating contract with up to 270 jobs on the line. Unions etc questioning how secure NI's electricity supply is now  for the next few years without Kilroot as they reckon it is too heavily dependent on wind. Major new interconnector line between Tyrone and Meath got planning approval earlier in the week but it is not going to be ready for about 3-4 years.

I knowthere  is a gaa rules topic but this one is a bit wider in terms of all sports.   I was watching aussie rules earlier and I know there has been a few experiments with bringing the Mark into gaa etc.  While that didn't work there are a couple of rules I think would be interesting to trial.

The first is playing on from a free kick.  I don't mean advantage, rather a player who had been fouled can get up and play on himself whether that be by running on with the ball or more importantly fisting the ball to a team mate. Really speeds up the game and reduces the benefit of cynical fouls as offending team doesn't have time to reset defensively

The second is a 50 metre penalty for dissent or kicking ball away etc.  Really hurts a team and might get rid of some of the mouthing rather than a 10 metre one.  This is one I would love to see introduced in soccer.  Mouth at the ref and ball gets moved up the pitch.

One rule that I think would work in soccer is the late tackle rule.  If your late in a tackle the free kick is either from where the ball lands or say 30m down field.

General discussion / Digisenders
« on: June 25, 2015, 01:11:52 PM »
Looking some advice here on a good digisender for transmitting sky to the bedroom.  I had one that worked well in my old house through the floor a 5.8ghz nikkai unit.

Moved house and now the signal had to go through 3 block walls and a slab floor so the old unit is not powerful enough.  Can anyone recommend a digisender with better range through walls.

Really don't want to start running cable upand through walls.
