    I was really bored so I gave 1628 a try even if they didn't fixed the API for Aida and garbage..
    Everything went smooth, it took 1h23minutes which is pretty normal for my old PC using a 7200rpm HDD.

    The rundown is bellow, sorry to @slicendice for stealing his table layout.

    Big surprise when I sat at my comp this morning. Tried to figure out what had caused it to restart just after midnight. Then the penny dropped - another version had been clever enough to do its own thing without me needing to watch it!

    These differences in time zones keep me out of sync at times.

    Hi,



    Sure, but it has nothing to do with a PC whatsoever. Inrush currents stresses every semi-conductor but wires? Come on !!
    That said, there are current limiting devices and so on. This is such an old legend really. Modern devices take powercycling graciously.
    That coming from a guy designing valved electronics only and making sure they last a life time.

    Cheers,
    That was part of a long explanation which you took out of context.

    The mention of aluminum wiring brings up the heating and cooling of conductors which causes problems. Back in the '70s and '80s one would see a lot of copper 'pigtails' of about 6" to 10" on devices such as light switches that were connected to the aluminum wiring in buildings, those connections had to be very good/tight and the wiring had to have slack to account for that heating and cooling. Generally the aluminum worked better if a gauge larger than necessary for copper.

    Yes it is. My new plan, when Edge doesn't do what I want it to do, I'll try to figure out why and work on it, rather than repeating my entire 4 letter word collection and closing Edge.
    This is my thoughts on Edge. I will test it. I will report any bugs I find. I'm happy with Pale Moon and If MS wants me to switch to Edge as my main browser any and all problems I report they can do the work to find and solve the problems.

    That's how I learned about the "proper" way to do it.

    The proper way is to use copper.

    If any electrician tried to do that in my house I would toss them out of my house. I doubt that would even pass inspection. I'll stay with copper.
