  1. Not will not, we simply cannot. There are no costs in small claims and not many people will work for free. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  2. That's not true though is it. A great deal of law comes from the 30s and before. Donaghue v Stephenson, one of the first cases lawyers learn regarding negligence dates from 1932. That relates to someone finding a snail in a beer bottle. Claiming damages isn't new at all despite the press impression. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  3. No worries. I'll not bore you with the law but you will need photos of it. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  4. Send me a picture of the hole and I'll tell you whether you should give it a go. (I'm a PI lawyer, not just odd and curious). Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  5. My downstairs one's doing the same thing. I've noticed that there's a little flappy plastic re-fill pipe, which if you hold it out the water, it fills up fine. I'm considering cutting the little thing off to see if that helps.
  6. I think we've found a troll. Hey my cats just laid an egg. It's brown, in their litter tray and smells bad, but it must be an egg. Just off to get the rabbit to work - it's ploughing the local field. The guinuea pigs are sat on it's back directing.
  7. You can't really beat a good, misinformed generalisation. So, my client who was hit by a drunk motorist and lost both his legs should be ashamed of himself. My client whose wife was killed in an accident at work caused by a complete failure to maintain a walkway should be ashamed of himself. Talking of children, my client who's 5 year old child was paralysed due to a broken cervical vertebrae, caused by a playground climbing frame collapsing underneath her due to total lack of maintenance should be ashamed of themselves. Of course!!! Please think before you type. Yes, some claims are pointless, and those generally fail. There are millions of people who deserve to be compensated due to other people's stupidity and negligence. Please don't confuse the two, and don't believe everything you read in the press about the "compensation culture". Thanks.
  8. Tried searching for "shirt" and it only gave me three choices, none of which were appropriate. Strange board
  9. Any t-shirt companies that people can recommend in Sheffield. Only want a small order of a few for an event - nothing major - just wanted somewhere reliable and quick that can either print on t-shirts we supply, or supply their own. Just text really. Thanks
  10. I do indeed. Its 500mb webspace and 20gb traffic per month, with database access, and everything else I needed. They even installed the phpBB for me in one click of a button. It is very cheap I agree. Ive been very happy with them.
  11. Yep phpBB - same thing. Well technically php is an extension, but hey lets not get technical The forum I mention is so active its actually quite scary. In all honesty, and nothing against this forum, but the Derren Brown one is much more active than this one. I also prefer the layout of phpBB (I feel a ban coming on!! ) I can think of loads that are on phpBB as well. I use it personally, and its so easy to set up. As for my web hosting - Dataflame have always been excellent for me. Plenty of space, 24/7 support, good bandwidth, free stuff, and Ive never ever had a problem with reliability. While Im praising companies - pipex broadband. Simply the best.
  12. One of the forums I use regularly has over 2000 users on PHP and is fine. Check out Derren Brown's forum (http://www.derrenbrownforum.com) - that has loads of users and no problems. Webspace that I use is £2.50 a month with lots of free space and bandwidth - http://www.dataflame.co.uk.
  13. Php is free. Webspace is £3 a month. Sorted.
  14. I would like to know this too if possible. I had heard that a lot of music studios use a material like carpet underlay underneath the plasterboard? Wonder if whacking some carpet up would deaden the sound?
  15. Never had any problems with them myself. Had loads with Vodafone.
  16. Depends if you ever want to use it peak rate. Im happy with mine. Nokia 7610 for free. 200 minutes anytime, plus 500 texts anytime, every month. 30 quid. O2 online. No junk mail either which is nice.
  17. Yes, but what happens then is that the case proceeds against the person named on the DVLA register as the owner of the vehicle, that person is given a trial date before magistrates, or alternatively pleads guilty, and the prosecution applies for additional costs. There is no way out of a speeding fine. I promise you. I deal with this day in day out. All these solutions are urban myths. That goes for all these stories about refusing to name the driver, sending a cheque for 1p too much, and all the others.
  18. She wont care I wouldnt think. I wouldnt care if one of my kids was gay. Why would anyone? As long as theyre happy, thats all that matters.
  19. Not noticeably. Just had to do the same thing after googling an image. Couldnt see any difference.
  20. Why should people who have better paid jobs suffer more for the same offence though? The whole point behind law is that it is dealt with in a uniform way. Everyone is seen as the same whether they be male, female, white, black, rich, poor or anything else. Say I earn £50k (I dont, far far from it), why shouldnt I feel annoyed if some little cretin who spent his childhood smoking at school and getting nowhere gets caught at the same speed. Just because I chose to work hard and do well, why should chav boy in his nova get away with a lesser fine when we are both caught at 40 in a 30? Just because someone earns more, maybe they have worked harder. The point is, you cant just say, oh he earns less therefore should pay less. Its the same offence.
  21. I never said I was a brilliant driver ( I am though ), what I actually said was that I do speed, but I am fully aware of the risk Im taking that I will be caught. If I get caught, I will have to pay the fine, and its no ones fault but my own because I know the law, and know that there is little point arguing it. Plenty of laws are unfair. The 70mph speed limit is ridiculously outdated. If I speed, get caught, then whinge, its not going to change it. At the end of the day, the person with his foot on the accelerator is the one in control of the car, and the one who is at fault if caught speeding. Tony Blair isnt making anyone speed.
  22. I dont deny speed cameras are generally there to make money but... Speed limit 30mph Speed at time 34mph Speeding. Yes its harsh, yes i would be upset, but i would look at it as bad luck. I would have been caught, its as simple as that. Its not a nice tactic, its not doing much for safety, but its the law. If police officers start letting people off for 34mph, do they then let them off for 36? Its only 2mph. If so, why not change the limit to 35?
  23. I dont dispute its a lot for a pensioner to pay. I never have. I just see speeding and other motoring offences as clear cut. Again though the problem with levels of fines is Court time. Given the amount of crime these days, the Courts just dont have the time to consider individual fine levels. There arent enough Court officers to do it, and to employ more leads to more revenue needed to fund it, which leads to higher fines. Its a vicious circle really. Heres a thought though. Imagine you have someone who earns £20k a year. 60% of his weekly income (which is about £200, by the way) goes on a fine for driving at say 35 in a 40. Someone else who works at McDonalds, a 20 year old in a Nova SRi, drives through the same camera at 45. Because he earns say £8000, he pays a hell of a lot less for driving at a higher speed. Should he not be more careful because he knows it will be more costly to him? Conversely, does that mean that Mr £20k is getting off more lightly if the fines are fixed at £60? Theres no answer to that I suspect. You cant please everyone with that one.
