  2. You need a phone that has HSDPA to get best speed. I've got a three USB dongle that does about 0.3 Mbps in Sheffield (they claim "upto 3.6meg" (Best was 1.4 Mbps, but that was in london) The latency is not great, so is slower than you may expect. Generally speaking I've found it to be flaky, but only use it when on the move. You can get some good deals these days. e.g. £80 for Three USB dongle + 1Gig a month for 12 months, just shop around. I'd suggest seeing if anybody you know has a phone / dongle you can try before buying. Cheers Nigel
  3. I've heard some of them will look to reduce the price significantly on the day you are due to complete / move. i.e. once you have committed to the expense of moving.
  4. 1) Go to at least one auction first, to see how the bidding process works 2) You need to ask yourself why it's being sold at auction: Repossesion Structural Issue Legal Issue Quick Sale Existing Tenant Unusual Property 3) Compare guide price to sale price on similiar properties 4) Make sure you have finance in place, if you can't complete on time you will loose the deposit (e.g. 10%). 5) Consider asking a builder for a quote on work required 6) I've seen repossesions sold at auction for more than you could of got them from an estate agent. 7) If all goes wrong, you can cut your losses and add back to the auction at a later date. Visit the property more than once Cheers Nigel
  5. Went in the other day, and was a nice / friendly place, with decent beers.
  6. I'm typing this on an 900. It's great for surfing / computing on the move. For a few quid more you can get a higher spec laptop, but I opted for the 900 due to its light weight / portability. I've also got three mobile broadband (bought modem off fleebay , £10 month for a 1 GIG on PAYG). Great for surfing on the move. I would recommend going for a Windows version, unless you are familiar with linux apt-get.
  7. Blundells wanted to charge me 199+vat to check a HIP provided by a solicitor. I changed estate agents instead.
  8. I'm about to start renovating a large 4/5 bed house in S3/Rutland road area as a hobby. Initially I'm looking for people to fit a heating system and to do a rewire, who are regisistered/can issues certificates and want to work at the weekend. I can supply most material if required, and prepared to do the prep work / labouring myself. (E.g. Taking up floor board, wall chasing, core drilling, box cutting etc, replaster etc). I won't do any of the "professional" work (e.g. pipe work / connecting cables). I've done several houses in Manchester previously, and looking for people in Sheffield. A full split of responsibilities/pricing will be define at the start of job. If you are interested then let me know either on the forum or can leave a message on my voip numbers (They get redirected to my moible/pc): 08704712736 Voice Number 08704712738 Fax Number Cheers Nigel PS: I can do work on the house any day over the next two weeks as on holiday from work.
  9. I recently acquired a 1966 morris minor traveller which requires some welding and work on the brakes for it's mot. Does anyone know of a person or garage which could do this work??? Preferably S6 / S3 area. Cheers Nigel
