  1. Stay at home say the politicians, but you can't shop online unless you're an existing subscriber. Self isolate if you have symptoms say the politicians but try buying a thermometer.
  2. Yeah, friend of mine who tested positive reported that.
  3. Yeah. Makes a bit of a mockery of the governments "stay home" advice.
  4. Horrible rotten <removed> , there really is some scumbags around.
  5. Apologies if this has been covered before, didn't find it by searching. I had an Acer Aspire running W7, not been connected for 2 years, so thought I'd better make sure it still works. All OK so decided to try and upgrade to W10. Using the MS upgrade tool failed with an error relating to the language and version (common error). To get around this I followed this article https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/how-to-upgrade-to-windows-10-using-windows-10-iso/3a5eaa7d-99dd-4d61-92ba-79019e5b4f1c Basically instead of downloading the MS Windows 10 upgrade tool and running it, instead select Create installation media for another PC from here https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10?ranMID=24542&ranEAID=IokOf8qagZo&ranSiteID=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&epi=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&irgwc=1&OCID=AID2000142_aff_7593_1243925&tduid=(ir__i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600)(7593)(1243925)(IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw)()&irclickid=_i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600?ranMID=24542&ranEAID=IokOf8qagZo&ranSiteID=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&epi=IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw&irgwc=1&OCID=AID2000142_aff_7593_1243925&tduid=(ir__i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600)(7593)(1243925)(IokOf8qagZo-TBN4ooxRNr.ZuzPQl1VhCw)()&irclickid=_i3izzljiyokft3rnkk0sohz3xm2xn0rqp1jmri3600 Download the file to a memory stick (min 8G) and then once it completes you can plug the memory stick into a PC, open the memory stick, look in the downloaded folder and double click "set up". Takes ages but works great.
  6. I've applied for one of the temporary delivery jobs yesterday with Tesco, Iceland and Morrison's. (I finished work voluntarily in January). The applications were a bit of a pain especially the Iceland one which was quite intensive. Not heard anything back yet.
  7. In my experience old people are just as selfish as younger people if not more so. (seen it first hand in Morrison's today). Hope the supermarkets are restricting what they are allowed to buy during these preferred shopping times. And who are classed as the disabled? are the staff doing checks? Can't help thinking this will get abused.
  8. Fell for that once when wife left MoT to the last minute. Won't fall for it again.
  9. I bought my daughter an iphone11 as a reward for all the effort she has been putting into her exam study, purchased from John Lewis with 2 year basic guarantee, no problems there. Looking for insurance, it's nearly £80 a year including accidental damage!! That's one of the lower quotes too. Is there a better way to get such insurance? Thanks in advance.
  10. ^^^^^ This really does drag the area down aesthetically. You see it even in the South Western sought after areas where the verges are all churned up. I can understand why people puts rocks on the verges and would support them doing it.
  11. British Gas are charlatans as I know from experience. If you insist on using them then you will get burnt at some point.
  12. Puzzles me why people are prepared to pay the high service charges in these flats 😲 they are only going to go one way too.
  13. Would like to see that put to the test. A blade saving Wednesday from armageddon. His ego would explode. 😀
