  1. One of the problems is that the media are doom-mongers. Remember Brexit? The UK was going to fall apart within weeks. (they had three years of reporting this shit) Scary headlines make more money, terrifying the public is their game. I am not for one minute playing down the seriousness of this virus, people are dying but there has to be a bit of reality. By now, quite a few 'famous' people have it or have had it - even the prime minister. Are they dead from it? No In fact, about all of the famous people are reported to have 'mild symptoms' And there's the rub - and sort of my point. The daily reports of deaths never ever, not once do they say how many survived or just recovered. If they said 50.000 cases and 300 died that would be better reporting but that is 'sort of good news - and that doesn't sell They used to say of those that died ' they had underlying health problems' but they have even stopped saying that now Instead they focus on the occasional seemingly healthy person that died. That makes much better frightening news. Everyone is bound to think if they died, so could I I agree with the lock down even though it is going to cause me financial hardship. I'm alone in my office with absolutely nothing to do. All I ask is don't believe everything you read............it's just someone's opinion. These people today are now saying it will be a 6 month lockdown Just someone's opinion but that opinion will spread worse than the virus.
  2. The disadvantages far outway the advantages. They are great cars if you only drive locally and charge every night. But even think of that - you have to charge every night and not forget to. Recently, my alternator failed and I had to wait a week for a replacement fitting. The battery went flat during the day and I had to charge for hours every night It was a complete pain in the arse.... To be condemned to that for the life of the car is no joke. How do you go across the country in one day? Drive 200 or so miles then charge for 8 hours before you can come back. They say they will invent super batteries that will charge in an hour - they haven't yet and probably can't unless a super material as yet unknown is found. If they go down the road of zero emissions, it will probably have to be hydrogen powered cars that only emit water vapour but even then every car will have a tank of liquid hydrogen on board.... You will have seen what happened to The Hindenburg
  3. To be honest Jamer....most popular forum websites are dying on their feet. I have been a member of quite a few, one in particular that was for up and coming writers and comedians. They had some famous people contribute regularly and a few members went on to be professional writers and TV stars with guidance from the regulars Every day it used to say something like 200 new posts. Hell, even I sold some material through them to some TV celebrities. Not sure I mentioned it before, but one of my gags was even told on the Royal Variety show and Charles and Camilla laughed at it (my proudest moment lol) But now the bush weed rolls through that forum. It's absolutely to do with the popularity of Twitter, FB, instagram and all the other posting platforms. The death knell for forums I'm afraid. Been great knowing you Colin and all the members. Used to be such fun on here ... and very helpful at times. As they say in Yorkshire 'Save thi brass lad' I shall call in a few times before I get the 'site not found' message. Footnote: I hate to ask...but any news on Alloneword's situation? Cheers Rother AKA Keith
  4. I had a toshiba and had to update the firmware/software on the tv to play videos from a usb. (it then played them all - any format) I downloaded the file from toshiba, put it on the usb and there was an option to update the tv.
  5. Ah well, it's your choice, your life. We have to respect that. Goodbye Morgan.
  6. Bloody hell Morgan... that took some reading. So surreal I thought at first it was a wind up... a bit of a sick wind up but just a joke As I read on, it became painfully obvious it wasn't. I say painfully, as it hurt to read of your life. I'm no psychologist or bereavement counselor and cannot even slightly imagine what you are going through but I know you are hurt very bad. This stuff with the rape and bleach is so unimaginable but I know it's the truth.. (gulp) You are what - 53, another 30 years to live naturally. Don't let debt and charges make you end your life. They can and will be dealt with. As for the psychological damage you have suffered and still suffering. That also can be lessened. Your wife passing would seem to be the final straw - grief changes your rational thinking. Just think of this. No matter how much debt you are in, they cant hang you for it. You wouldn't even go to jail. There are very good specialists in the NHS that can help with your mind problems - if you make the move and tell them. You may never get over losing your wife but the pain you feel now will not be as bad as time passes. You made the move to write your status here. I implore you to now make the move to get help. People will help - it's not all black out there.
  7. I'm surprised you haven't closed a long time back jamer. It must be painful to keep coughing up and seeing so few posters or visitors. As I've said before, I've been here from almost the beginning under different names as I was banned a couple of times. (That troy fella really didn't like me) And lol, alloneword called me a C**t a couple of times hehe (probably deserved as I was being one) But in the beginning it was a great place to get software etc that was hard to find. and ironically, it's getting hard to find again with all the ISP's blocking everything. Even IPTV is going down the pan at the moment. Did you read about the big raid in all the european countries. They got to the main hub, confiscated all the equipment and 55 million illegal subscribers lost their connection.
  8. I did it a few years back. I had to pay £200 to file the complaint with county court. And another £200 when it went to court. They were found guilty in their absence and ironically, paid up the next day (including all costs) They even complained to me by email that they now had a recorded CCJ registered against them even though they paid up... and it would affect their credit rating. This was a Ltd Business and I later found out you can actually go to the .gov site and fill in a claim there and they have to power to freeze their bank accounts and stop them trading.
  9. Sounds like me and that Wanker Iain Lee. He only lets sycophants follow him. He moans on every tweet how depressed he is and how he wants to end his life and his acolytes tweet in thousands how great he is. He does this every day and back they all come 'but you are wonderful Iain' I said get some treatment and stay off twitter until you are better. - Instant block. I wouldn't buy twitter accounts - it's easy enough to open multiple gmail accounts and use each one to join twitter with a different name. Use autofil for all the different accounts and then take your pick when you log into twitter. Or did you mean buy followers? You can pay to get thousands of followers to make you look like a superstar - people will check you out and follow you because they think you have interesting things to say.
  10. The tactics used by the losing voters and politicians are as old as man itself. The divide and conquer tactic being the main one. There is a book that is called The Art of War. It was written 2000 years ago by a chinese general. It's a hard read but every chapter is on how to overcome your enemy when you are in the minority. Rule 1. cause fear and uncertainty within your enemy and friends alike. When total confusion and abject fear is present, strike hard. Ring any bells?

    Interesting. I had a 'do' with them a year or two back. I received a parking fine for over-staying in Brighton I'd never been to Brighton. (live in Yorkshire) I contacted the people who sent the fine and they said ok, it will be rescinded But trace recovery took the money out of my account There is some strange law where these people can just take money from you without permission or you giving them bank details I got it back.
  12. Not as cheeky as that but a while ago, my nextdoor neighbor had their wifi/camera door bell stolen. They masked up and prized it off the door. Cheeky bastards. They have film of it but they had face masks on - it being halloween they weren't out of place. Before it stopped broadcasting though, the video showed them getting on two distinct bicycles. I'm keeping my eye out for those.
  13. Don't use visaprint! They advertise very cheap printing - it's bollox. They add something to the price on every turn - never mention VAT or postal charges until the final page so 500 business cards for £9.99 turns into £35.00 for basic cards. I wanted a clear company logo sticker to stick on the inside of my cars back window - just the lettering and logo to be visible I explained it carefully to them and sent the logo artwork. - what did I get? The clear parts were white, it was printed with an inkjet and you could see lines through it and worst of all the sticky side was on the back. Meaning if I used it, I would have to stick it on the outside of the window. I couldn't use it as it would have obscured my rear view vision. After much arguing and threatening and 9 months - I got my money back. I went to a local printing/graphics company and they made me 4 for £40.
