  1. I couldn't see anywhere in that story that said the council spent £140 million. I read that the contract the council made with Capita would generate £140 million in revenue for Capita. That's why all the services were taken back from Capita to be in the council...previously they were being run as a business, to make money...and doing benefits claims for people isn't about making money, it's about trying to help people....that's why Capita never made any money from it all.
  2. Because tens of thousands of people are trying to place orders online for thier food, and they simply don't have the capacity to fulfil all these orders right now.
  3. Hearing all the applause outside at 8pm was quite touching really.
  4. It's probably best to contact your manager somehow. It will also depends on what your employer is classed as, whether it's an "essential service" or not...
  5. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52012432 Exactly as predicted by the guys I work with, most likely due to the idiots over the weekend.
  6. I can't undertand why John Lewis have decided to shut their stores...they sell household items, electricals and whatnot. It doesn't seem to make sense to me.
  7. My initial idea would be to try one of those Powerline adapters? But I'm unsure on the range they can transmit along....someone more techy should be able to offer better advice.
  8. The toilet roll thing is madness. I work in a wholesalers, on Monday we got 26 pallets of toilet rolls delivered, and by lunchtime today we had sold out, even with buying limits in place.
  9. It's a combination of people panic buying, and normal people not being able to buy stuff because of the panic buyers, so when it does finally come back in stock, there are lots of people who have run out and so need to buy more than normal.
  10. RIP His roles that I remember best are from the 80s version of Dune, and of course Game of Thrones.
  11. Or if you have an "advanced" bank account that you pay a fee for you my get some kind of cover through that. My other half has this through Yorkshire Bank and it includes cover for unlimited gadgets and 1 mobile phone.
  12. Check your home insurance too, some companies include gadget cover.
  13. Does anyone know anything about two people being bundled into an ambulance today on Abney Road by guys wearing hazmat suits?
  14. On a normal PC I'd suggest that you open the case and give the fan a quick hoover. However after looking up your Mac, I don't think that's an option, I can't see how you open the case.
  15. My dad lives on a cul-de-sac, right at the end. There is a large turning area right at the start of the road, but people still insisted on driving right to the end, and turning round in his driveway and driving across his grass. So he used to put out huge rocks painted bright white, just on the edge of the grass where it meets the driveway. He said the best tool he managed to get (other than people grinding their bumpers) was a white van man who actually managed to get stuck and tore his own bumper off 🤣
