    Warning

    This company have no powers at all to deduct money directly from your bank account without your knowledge. What usually happens is that your account or card details have been cloned, and then used by someone else online, the easiest way to use cloned cards etc. Tracerecovery then just go ahead and charge your account without any further checks, it's not illegal, but it is immoral ! ALWAYS, ALWAYS, check your account statements, and if possible have your banking set to send you a message about all card transactions or debit withdrawals. I have mine set to send me a 6 digit code every time my card is used, and the payment is rejected if I don't enter it in my bank app within 10 minutes.

    Hola ! from Mehiko

    Well, so much for coming back to the UK last month !I left Saudi (maybe only temporarily) and ended up in Norway again, sorting out all my shit from the last time I was there, and putting my van back on the road to bring it all to the UK.Then...... out of the blue...... Hi Phil, how do you fancy 6 months in Mexico ?Well the $$ rate was too good to refuse, so here I am, in Queretaro in central Mexico, topping up the bank balance, and the suntan, oggling the beautiful señoritas, and downing copious quantities of Corona by the pool at £1 a bottle.

    JamersPad 20th Birthday

    Appy Burpday JamersPad Oh, and Grumps...... stories of your demise were a bit premature on the Rivet then, we haven't seen you for months
  5. Shit man ! That's some serious stuff ! I don't know where to start on this one, but I do/did have a mate that took the Dignitas Clinic route a couple of years ago....... totally in secret, none of us knew anything until the day after she did it ! I'm NOT recommending that, I never would, I'd always be the one to err on the side of "it will all be OK with the right care and attention from yourself and your medics", but if it ever does look like the prognosis is BAD, and I mean very BAD........... I'm saying no more.

    Fire Extinguisher... What class

    You should get it checked regularly if you can, and they can usually be refilled if required, the only lifed item really is the cylinder. Most of the ones we use are lifed at ten years, you will normally find an expiry date for it stamped into the cylinder itself.

    Fire Extinguisher... What class

    Best all round extinguisher, if you can get hold of one, is a CO2, it puts the fire out with no damage to other surrounding items. A dry powder extinguisher puts out the fire just as effectively, but it causes hugely excessive mess ,and terminal damage to any electrical items that even the smallest trace of the powder gets into, and it gets everywhere, including adjacent rooms with closed doors, it eats electrical conductors, slowly but surely.

    Anyone ever claimed back PPI?

    Good advice Rother. You could also take a look at the consumer action group forums, there's stacks of information there.

    Drones

    Anyone else lashed out a wad on one of these ? I just bought the latest DJi Phantom 4, €1599 I've been toying with the idea of buying one for a while now, but was finally convinced after seeing a friend flying his older one, and decided to take the plunge. This thing has dual Inertial Navigation Systems, GPS and GLONASS (the Russian version of GPS), Collision Avoidance, and a whole host of other shit I haven't even started to discover yet, but one thing really sets it apart from some of the cheaper crap you hear about, and see reports of in the papers when they fly too close to airports etc...... there's a regularly updated list of worldwide No Fly and Restricted Fly zones on the website, and this stops you becoming one of the idiots, as the drone will turn away and come home from a restricted area, unless you have registered a flight plan up to 3 days before, it will also refuse to take off within a No Fly zone, and will even land and shut off it's motors automatically without you having a chance to overide it, if you should stray into a No Fly zone at any time. I tested this, as the bottom of my street actually falls just within the Restricted Zone for Bremen Airport (1 mile from the centre of the main runway), I flew towards it at 500 ft (NOT ON THE FLIGHTPATH, at 90 degrees to it), just as I got close, I received a warning on the tablet screen that I was about to enter a restricted area, I kept going, the drone then took control automatically, descended to 120ft avoiding trees and houses, and flew out of the area, another warning then came up on the screen that I had to register a flight plan 3 days before I could proceed. My only option was to come away from the zone, or to land, I had no other control available to me. I'm really enjoying this thing, not to mention the quality of the video..... 4K..... it's awesome

    A piece of cake to fly. As long as you take it slowly the first few times you fly it, you'll get quite confident really quickly

    Independence Day

    Maybe it's time a few people got together and started their own petition..... "The people of the United Kingdom have spoken in the EU Referendum, Parliament must NOT allow a second referendum, and article 50 should be invoked immediately. Any MP voting or campaigning against the wishes of the majority should be stripped of their Parliamentary position" You need 5 email addresses of supporters to start it, I'd do it myself, but I'm outside the UK, and if it did take off, then that wouldn't look good.
  15. Sounds to good to be true doesn't it, but it's not I had a dodgy version of 7 running on both my laptop and my desktop, and I wanted to upgrade both to 10. Both systems showed they were ready to upgrade, but neither would pass the upgrade test, but then a search for information came up with this little gem..... https://softwaregeeks.co.uk/product/windows-7-professional-product-key-label-coa/ Feeling a bit dubious, I bought one to start with, then tried the upgrade..... HOLY COW ! it worked first time with no problems So I bought another, and decided to try a fresh full install of 10 using the 7 key, WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!! I now have two computers running LEGITIMATE licensed copies of Windows 10, for only 40 quid

    Before you do this, check the rules. I'm sure I read somewhere that a flashing red light on a motorised vehicle is illegal.
