Already have, Irish, German, Norwegian and Siberian, Irish is roughly 50% which includes the Norwegian but I'm unsure as to the % of the Norwegian as it was apparently very small, German is 30% and Siberian is 20%, Rough figures but I found it interesting, The Siberian is from the German side of the family, My German grandfathers grandfather or father, Unsure on that one, Was from northern Siberia, And the Norwegian is from 1 of my ancestors on the Irish side

Could imagine Dice ancestors returning a 3 legged pig.

"Had one leg but it tasted funny. Sent it back for a refund"

I apparently am part english/french/Ghanian and Saudi.

What's everyones take on this, A guy I was talking to in work said he wouldn't order anything anymore from ebay considering nigh on all of it comes direct from china and doesn't want to take risks with potentially importing a contagion, Thoughts ?

Depends. Virus won't live long enough on a ship but air mail may be dodgy. Then again that costs more than the items.

Yeah unless you're buying something alive(or recently so) you should be okay, I think I read the virus likely only survives 24 hours on surfaces.

Its all good

"Because of poor survivability of these coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures,"
That being said. Low risk still means potential chance. I would not rule anything out.

Here's a funny one.

Some dude on a forum I visit bought a Ryzen 3900x with 16gb ram. He decided to upgrade to 32 over 4 sticks. He's now getting 12% better scores in 3Dmark.

It was thought to be an anomaly, then someone posted this.

https://www.techspot.com/article/197...er-for-gaming/

Only really "works" on Ryzen but very interesting.

Glad I went with 32 now haha I was going to stick to 2 in dual channel.
