  • Good luck to Bob. As pm says, pass on our thoughts Lee. 🤞

  • I have that exact chair. It’s held up well had it 2 years almost.

    Cheers for trying but they tried a second time for payment. Normal procedure, I should of fon into the app and canceled it, so I’m on it for another year. Lol.

    Thanks anyway. I’m not bothered as it’s worked for me for years, I was just interested in seeing what options was out there. I think I’ll set a reminder to look next year, and cancel it…[Read more]

    For years I’ve used hotspot sheild premium (around £18 for 5 users). just woke to find the bank account I have set up for micro transactions didn’t have enough in it to cover this year’s sub.

    I was about to rectify it and pay it, but then thought I’d ask in hear for any suggestions.

    I need on that will give me next to unlimited bandwidth and…[Read more]

  • The Duke replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 3 days ago

    That is an issue Dave. The government is a mess, but the Labour Party is in the same state.

    I don’t don’t know what we need, I just know its F-ing broken atm.

    I still think Labour last time round should of run on ending brexit. They would of won, and could of put this to bed with a mandate 2 years ago.

    I can’t see there being a leave Dave. I was agreeing that a second ref would sort this out.

    It’s going to go to a second ref or a GE and we’ll get a final answer. Around 75%, if the original vote was happy with the status quo. So I can see a bigger turn out this time, as many thought there was little to no chance of a leave win. So about 50% of…[Read more]

    Wear os, or rather the app store. As I had that face on my watch when I had the pixel.

  • The Duke replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 3 days, 16 hours ago

    I’d be happy with that too WoF.

    Pm my favourite watch face is called marine commander. Nothing to do with the forces, it just looks classy.

    End up a GE and one party will run on remaining, will win and then this will be all forgotten about.

  • A few years back my girl was having issues with an eye doctor. Basically the great and concerned 50 year old man left, and the next session his understudy/replacment had a totally different outlook, ie he wasn’t sure so hewill discharge her. I asked for a second opinion. Given his bosses earlier views.

    Waited about 3 months, finally got an…[Read more]

  • The Duke replied to the topic IPV6 and BT in the forum PC Talk 4 days, 21 hours ago

    Funny enough I noticed last week when my router died and I plugged in the TT hub tt was now using ipv6. When I sent my router up probably 2015/16 I remeber turning the function off within the router as I knew TT was yet to start rolling them out.

    Makes no odds to me atm. But it did catch my eye.

  • All the major media players have sleep timers. I use Audibles or the podcast one every night. Set it for 30 min intervals. Usally 4 times a night at least!

  • Same here, loads of plastic boxes. I’d love a better set up. Congrats.

  • The Duke replied to the topic EE 4GEE car hot spot in the forum Other Tech 6 days, 3 hours ago

    That’s a cool little device. I don’t want it, I didn’t even know they had these standalone type of hotspot device on sale. Or has it been pulled from a car that had it installed from new? I thought car hotspot tbh just converted your phones 4gh into a WiFi hotspot. Ie like a WiFi router and your phone is the data input to it.

    I’d could of done…[Read more]

  • marine for 4 years, I’m don’t do it, when I was a kid I loved watching the main service on TV, but since I’ve left I’ve left I’ve not been a service. You have to attend when in service.

    Watch a shed load of minutes silence this weekend with the footy.

    I don’t mind the minutes silence, what I don’t like is the ‘last post’ being played on a bugle.…[Read more]

    Sort of regaled to the current topic, was at a friend’s over the weekend who has vergin media fiber, doing a speed tests over WiFi I’d get 108 down, 6up, 5ms ping, so all great on paper. It was awful to try an watch bt sport today. It just kept buffering, and rubber banding all the time, in the end I turned my 4g on.

    I have no idea how it was so…[Read more]

    They rely on us to spy on them, and we now have them spy on our own. To not break each nations laws.

    I’m lucky in my village being higher up, but walk down to the pub, 500m away (that’s the 3rd one too) and it’s a black spot, as is my Inlaws that are even lower down at the base of our hill. Though wifi calling has all but sorted the issue out. Even in the pub 😢

  • The Duke replied to the topic Guide to Quitting Google in the forum PC Talk 1 week, 2 days ago

    I’d say a good reason to stay with Google, is try and quit for a week. It’s a free service, or free to the pocket, and Google are upfront about what their business model is. You are product, but not you personally, not like the NHS.

    No one moans when them Bounty packs turn up at your front door with your name on them. Well, except the ladies that…[Read more]
