RE: Online Courses for Construction people ?

ooh a first time poster asking about construction courses on a dvd review site... i cant wait for their reply with the SPAM links in it!

RE: Broadband companies to alert you of end of contract

one slight nuance with the rules are, that they have to tell you that there are better offers/rates available...

however they do not have to offer you these as an existing customer, thy can still use special offers to entice new customers though.

I very recently had very similar experience with Vodafone, been a customer around 15 years, saw an online offer for Vodafone through a third party Carphone Warehouse, 4x the data, and half the price.

Vodafone would match it... i could terminate current contract and take out the new one, but could port the number, as Vodafone don't port their own numbers!

RE: Peter Rabbit

Funny this has appeared today... with the shocking weather this morning i watched Peter Rabbit with my 10 year old, was actually quite good!

RE: Bush fire hell in Australia

Bush fires are a natural phenomenom, and essential for the cycle of life... what has been extrordinary this time has been the magnitude of them.

Nature will find a way to make better again, if man leaves well alone.

RE: [VIDEO] Hello again :-)

Glad to hear you are back... i think others have said it all really!

As soon as you can, walk!

RE: Any coin collectors here?

nope... but i do have a two big old tea tins, full of old penny's, six pences, threepenny bits, and other coins.

I have had them twenty years, came from my gran, i am sure some may be silver... but how do i find out?

Could take them to a local antiques shop plenty in the town, but always usefull to know the real value.

Is there a cut of date when silver coins stopped?

Sadly no Soveraigns in there, but a few Crowns and Half Crowns

RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

well it definitely gets better in the second episode...

RE: RIP Nicholas Parsons

RIP... a true gent

RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

Watched the first episode last night on Prime

I quite enjoyed it, yes Spiner is a little waxy and bloated in his cameo... I guessed immediately who the 'enemy' were, and new immediately who the girl was... all a little predictable, but none the less i can see the potential.

Its interesting as my 10 year old has been watching Star Trek on horror/sci-fi every night at 6pm, then Voyager at 7pm, and has really got into them.

She even watched DrWho on a Sunday night, but hasnt really grasped that yet... i was concerned she may find some of it a bit scary, but it hasnt bothered her!

You liked all of Discovery? Interesting... I gave up after the first season.
There were parts that were a little tedious, but i quite enjoyed the homage to the Original series, and updating the characters... yes Spock was annoying!

RE: [VIDEO] Captain Picard returns

Just seen the trailer... cant wait!

Watched all of Discovery over the Christmas period, have to sat i really quite enjoyed it!

RE: What?

How do i get those 2 1/2 minutes of my life back?

RE: Windows 7 RIP

RE: Windows 7 RIP

Still on W7 here...

If someone finds a links to download, from a reputable source i will give it a go!

RE: [VIDEO] The All New Doctor Who Thread...

I think that the choice of Jodie Whittaker as the Dr, has been a brilliant one, and has saved my interest in watching, after the last one!

RE: [VIDEO] Top Gear really is back!

"One off Christmas Special on last night and thought it was great.
Three of them driving through Nepal.
Worth catching up on. "

I thought that Top Gear would be hard to beat with the three of Clarkson, May and the annoying Hamster... it lost its way for a few series with Evans, LeBlanc etc...

But have to say the current three really seem to have great chemistry together and make this good watching once again.

Last nights was on after the watershed, 9pm, and whilst i am no prude, my 10 year old loves the programme, and if she had been watching i would have been uncomforatable at the level of bad language, swearing, as really it added nothing to the show, but may upset/lose viewers.

Another great show, if you want to be more purist about the car... is Goblin Works Garage, which returns this coming Thursday ay 9pm.  I have met Jimmy many times, and he really is as interesting, and knowedgeable in person, and not at all full of i'm a star leave me alone. Top bloke.

RE: [VIDEO] Wonder Woman 1984

I suspect the best thing about this film will be the sound track?

My musical bus stopped in 31st December 1989 and i chose to get off!

RE: Printer -

Have exactly the same issue with a Kodak unit... just will not print, suspect its gunked up somehow, cheaper to throw away and buy new, than mend!

That awful... Greta girl will be spitting at me again, and my wasteful generation!

RE: Election 2019

i could never support any party with Corbyn in, i really cannot print what i think about him.

My money is a straight fight between Boris, and the Liberals who will just give what little decision making we do have to Brussels.

RE: The adidas Originals Star Wars Collection for 2010

The Adidas stuff does nothing for me, but quite like the Levi denim jackets!
