    Carson Stationer Closed

    Carsons was "the shop" for large permi markers in the 90's. The arts shop on campo lane used to sell the 1" wide posca torch style markers. Pinders had a fine collection of buntlack and other art paints in lots of nice bright non car paint colours.
  2. NEVER trust any number or name displayed on your phone, it can all be spoofed. BT and other phone companies are quite happy to take the termination fees and allow incoming junk calls with invalid caller ID information.
  3. The open air tools are pretty good. https://uk-air.defra.gov.uk/data/openair?build=timeplot Select Sheffield Tinsley, select all variables, set the time period to MAX (1990->2017) and do the chart, it shows a downward trend since 1990. If we are now at 2 x the legal levels, what have we been suffering in the past?
  4. Don't think they thought about this one. I wonder how many accidents will be caused by drivers distracted looking at the "artwork" next to the busy meadow hell junction's at either end of the viaduct. What next, disco lights on a large poo shaped plastic cover for the Blackburn Meadows treatment works?

    Best Sausages In Sheffield

    Crawshaws Chapeltown, think the "plain pork" are called something like "Yorkshire Gold Medal". I used to get a lot of the thin ones in 1kg vacuum pack's for export when working away in places where pork products are not normally available.

    Vodafone fiber, any good?

    Some of the infrastructure is the old Demon -> Thus -> C&W, the unlimited product was the best out there as they did not throttle with insane amounts of downloads and ping was very good for gaming. I have been with the original Demon since the £10/month days (c30 years), recently Vodakrone decided that they no longer provide e-mail and set up a dodgy deal with NamesCoo to "BUY" your e-mail domain from them. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/08/16/vodafone_apoligises_for_booting_customers_off_demon/ Corporate response to complaints, bugger off if you don't like it - we don't care.

    Clown Craze has reached Sheffield!

    If they get arrested and charged do the police send the case to the Clown Prosecution Service?
  8. http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/sheffield-to-be-left-with-just-two-public-toilets-under-new-plans-1-7476036 The one in Chapeltown seems to be run by the the local parish council, if I remember correctly this was refurbished a few years ago at the cost of about 60k.
  9. Our black bin was collected earlier as normal, looked like agency workers not the normal crew. BBC Look North were incorrectly stating on both morning and lunchtime news that there would be no collections in Sheffield today. Wonder how many people didn't get their bins collected following BBC's disinformation.

    Thorncliffe Park, High Green

    Back in the day it used to be lovely down there with crown green bowling, tennis courts, cricket field and football pitches. Like many of the parks north Sheffield the council neglected them for years and down the line they start building on them as they are now "derelict sites" due to lack of basic maintenance. There is a new planning law being used to build on "parks", Part 12 Town and country General Permitted Development Order (2015): http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/596/pdfs/uksi_20150596_en.pdf My basic understanding of reading this and dealing with planning enforcement indicates this is green light to do what they like with no formal planning process.

    New LED street lights

    Next to my house they added a new LED light, this was very bright and shined into the house. After a few complaints and letter mentioning the light pollution regulations they dimmed it, this made little difference so they eventually made a shade to deflect the light away from the house. Since then its been no problem.

    Loundside Church

    Which one? There are 4 church buildings on the top of lound. a) On left heading towards Chapeltown was converted to an office block and was up for sale a while back. b) First on right next to road. c) Second on right next to road. The former vicarage for this one is behind the church, think it was called old mans/manse house. This is an amazing house, the parents of one of my school friends owned this about 30 yr ago. Used to camp in the garden all the time never saw any spookieness. d) St Johns Church? 2nd on right further back from road in grave yard. Is this one still in use as a church? There was a local rumour that b or c was bought by a reggae star a few years ago to renovate into a home but did not complete the plans.

    Oughtibridge - Fibre Broadband on way

    Please do the same if your in anywhere High Green, Virgin with all their faults has got to be better that the poor service we get from BT. BT only have fibre in parts of the village, for example:- 1/2 of Green Gate lane (only available on one side as a friend found out after an engineer came to install). This is only FTC (fibre to cabinet-medium speed) and not the propper FTTP (fibre to the premises- very fast speed). Rest of village will only be fibred up by BT if:- a) enough people show interest (register on bt website). b) spineless regulator forces them to make fibre basic level of servers (unlikely). c) virgin start to offer service in the area. Shame they were not pro-active and came to install the ducts before streets ahead resurfaced the pavements.

    Electoral Registration letter

    Same here, opted out every time I get one of these and keep getting put back on the public list, this time I have made copies of this information sent and will be complaining to data controller if it gets made public again. I doubt the £1000 fine works the other way round if they enter information other than what has been provided. Also note, the website is a joke:- 1) If you opt opt there you must give an e-mail address. 2) If you add new people to the list you must give an email address and telephone number. Fill out the form and sent it back in pre-paid envelope, let them pay the cost of the postage and having someone input the data.
