  1. Thank you DeZeus. I looked on PCWorld webite concerning WEEEE and it would appear that, yes, they will take away your old whateveritis, but only if you are buying a NEW one from them. Well, let's be thankful that at least they will do that, but I am not buying a new one from them, so I shall pursue other avenues you have suggested. Thanks for replying.
  2. I was given this printer. It has been useful, but now makes the right noises but the printed page is feint in the extreme, hardly showing that it is a printed page at all. I suppose new inks are required. I do not intend to buy them, because I have another printer I am using now. How do I dispose of this printer as it is? Would anyone want it? Where do all these old pieces of equipment go? This must be a question that arises all the time. Do I put it in the black bin?
  3. The channel for BBC World News used to be 107. Can anyone tell me what it is now please?
  4. I received via my land line an odd message telling me that during the next 24 hours my BT internet connection would be cut off because of suspected hacking. I was invited to press 1 for something and 2 for something else. I didn't. Has anyone had something similar? I dialled 1471 and the number who had called began 00625....
  5. Where does the 51 bus (that used to stop at the cathedral) now stop? And why? I liked having the 51 and the 52 stopping at the same stop.
  6. I'm looking for a pub, a hotel or a hostelry with a private hire room which can seat 40 people and serve lunch. It needs to have easy access from the car park to the building, spacious toilet facilities, and if possible a view over hills and countryside. Not more than 7 miles from the Hallamshire Hospital. Any ideas, please?
  7. I think this topic has arisen before. I have a hospital appointment at 8.30 a.m. on a weekday. I shall have to travel by bus to get there. Can I use my OAP bus pass if I show my appointment letter to the driver?
  8. I would like advice as to how and where to advertise for sale a Trimfast Ream Cutter and a sewing frame no longer needed.
  9. Copies are coming off the printer with undesirable little black marks, repeated down the page at approx. four inch intervals. This would suggest something on a roller. What can be done?
  10. A friend has just told me not to try to go up to Lodge Moor on Monday because there are no buses? Is this so?
  11. Does anyone have any tips for getting a wheelchair and occupant safely down a steepish slope from house to pavement?
  12. I passed the site on Thursday 23 August and the worker at the entrance was having a hard task answering the questions of passers-by, because all he knew was that his firm had a contract to clear the site, and he knew nothing more. That site has been an amazing example of how rapidly nature can take over completely.
  13. I need a joiner/carpenter to alter the back door to make it open further. I suspect this will mean taking the door off to alter the hinges, or removing something from the bottom of the door, rehanging it, etc. I need it done to be sure a wheelchair will go through. At the moment it's going to be not quite possible... there is a certain urgency to all this. Any reliable tradesperson you can recommend please?
  14. YES, it does, I am now back with a language I understand. Thanks for that help. "Simple when you know how", as they say!
  15. Thanks, northernboy, I've just been there, but the choice of what to do is in the language I am now stuck in. I therefore need to know the language to discover which bit says "change language"!! There must be a simple solution... Aha, what if I consult iplayer website on another laptop which IS using English? I have just tried this, and noted where the "change language" instruction is out of the various possibilities. I shall now see whether that works and report back...
