tails

Tails, or The Amnesic Incognito Live System, is a security-focused Debian-based Linux distribution aimed at preserving privacy and anonymity. It connects to the Internet exclusively through the anonymity network Tor. The system is designed to be booted as a live DVD or live USB, and leaves no digital footprint on the machine unless explicitly told to do so. It can also be run as a virtual machine, with some additional security risks. The Tor Project provided financial support for its development in the beginnings of the project, and continues to do so alongside numerous corporate and anonymous sponsors.

    New radiator install, adding tails and on tightening, I heard a crack!

    Hi, I'm installing a new radiator and just getting round to adding the tails. The one with the heat control went on ok but the other made a single crack on tightening up the tail.

    Max distance for 10mm tails off 22mm flow and return

    I’m considering my options for moving (JG) pipework from an inaccessible place whilst the floor is up. One option might be to use 2 x JG 4-port manifolds, mounted in a much more convenient location. But, this would mean adding 2 - 3 metres to the 10mm tails (off flow and return) and i’m not sure...

    Can the rad tails on kudox radiators go far in?

    Hi guys, I have fitted a new radiator and had a few issues working things out once I put it on the bracket. I screwed the tails in until the threads were no longer visible. The tails were too far out of the rad/too long and couldn't align the valves with the pipes. So I twisted them in further...

    Hi first post here😀 I want to replace a couple of rad valves with TRVs but as you can see from the pic, the existing tails are bigger than it usual.

    Sealing monobloc tap tails

    I use Loctite 55 thread for sealing half-inch and similar BSP male screw-threads. But when fitting a monobloc tap with the tiny 10mm threaded tails where the Loctite thread looks too fat, should I rely on the O-ring (with a dab of silicon lube) for sealing, one turn of PTFE, a smear of Loctite...
