For Sale – 3 x BT Hubs. Free to a good home!

I have 3 BT hubs I’ve just cleared out of my loft, one is a Hub 5 and two are Hub 4’s. I think from memory they were working but I can’t be 100% positive, we were having problems with our broadband and they kept sending my routers but it turned out to be the connection that was the problem.

Anyway they are free to anybody that wants them, if you can cover the postage that would be great.

Turning the next generation into everyday superheroes thanks to Hour of Code 2019 – Microsoft News Centre Europe

When you think of coding, your first thoughts might be about highly specialized technical know-how. But did you know that effective coding requires skills like creativity, innovation and collaboration too – all of which will be hugely important for the workforce of tomorrow?

According to Microsoft research with McKinsey, the fastest growing occupations, such as technology professionals and healthcare providers, will require a combination of digital and cognitive skills such as digital literacy, problem solving and critical thinking. Young people having access to learning tools to improve both these sets of skills is crucial – a fact non-profit organizations like JA Europe recognize through their work to get young people ready for the future of work. If young people are given the opportunity to develop their digital skills, the European Labor Market will see significant benefits when they move into the workforce. According to a LinkedIn Economic Graph report, AI Talent in the European Labour Market, training and upskilling ‘near-AI’ talent could double the size of the current AI workforce in the EU. It also found that AI skills are concentrated in a small number of countries and that this must be addressed to reduce the digital skills gap in Europe.

In conjunction with Computer Science Education Week which began yesterday and extends to December 15, Microsoft continues its multi-year commitment to Hour of Code, a global movement that introduces students to computer science and demystifies what coding is all about. Activities are running across Europe to fuel imagination and demonstrate how these skills could be used to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. As such, code has the power to turn anyone into an everyday superhero.

To bring this to life, Microsoft is inviting young people to ‘save the day’ through Computer Science. Created in partnership with MakeCode, a new Minecraft tutorial combines code, Artificial Intelligence and problem solving skills. It is inspired by various Microsoft AI for Earth projects and encourages students to use their critical thinking skills to plot where forest fires could happen, put plans in place to stop them with AI and ultimately save the Minecraft village!

Since 2012, Microsoft has helped more than 137,000 young people and educators in Europe through Hour of Code events and programs. And, as the end of the decade draws near, we are keen to support even more people to get into coding and show how it can change the world. If you’re looking to help your children or students become coding superheroes, we have developed two training guides – one for students and one aimed at educators – no cape needed!

Go forth and code!

For Sale – Imac 27″ (2017) 24gb Ram I5

I think its more to do with the fact there is no Apple keyboard or mouse included.. A friend of mine is interested but they would then need to shell out approx £100+ for new Apple peripherals. Appreciate its not that old but its also out of warranty. Just weighing up some options…

Wanted – dfi lanparty nf4 ultra socket 939

That was a good board and one I think I changed to from the dfi back in the day as was more reliable.

I’m using a nf4 ut in a mame cabinet, and can’t be bothered to do a more modern install. I’ve actually got mine working again now, turns out it was the power supply. However I’d still be interested in picking up a fully working example as a back up.

Wanted – Dell XPS 13 9360

Hi
I did consider what you had posted, however I too had spent some time looking into what would be a suitable laptop for my son who is going into 6th next month. I was disappointed when the thread was achieved as I was going to put an offer in as well.

Sean had a FS thread for a couple of screens, one of which I was interested in, I asked if he would in interested in a deal for both the screen and the laptop only to find out the screen had been sold off forum, I pointed Sean in the direction on my wanted thread should he change his mind.

The rest can be seen above, the laptop has been paid for, Sean should have put Windows 10 back on and posted today for delivery tomorrow.

I wish you luck in your hunt, perhaps a wanted thread may help, there is another XPS here for sale.
