  1. I have seen that happen on my 4g Android phone-3g displays at the top, of the screen. I think this is when it is a busy time. I say this because I notice the 3g display in the house. In the majority of time, 4G displays in the house. It is good news then-that 3g is not going to be pulled anytime soon. I will source a large button phone on 3g for him. That will suffice. Thanks.
  2. I have been looking for a basic phone for an elderly relative. Just something on payg for very occasional use only. Just to let me know his train has been cancelled for example when we have arranged to meet up. I understand the 3G signal is only available for a limited time. Anyone know how long is left ?
  3. Just posting to wish you success in your endeavour. Every mountain climbed always started with the first step.
  4. Was the can damaged in any way? Apparently, even if dented, this can sometimes cause very tiny perforations. Also, the 6 figure date format that was mentioned 24.09.17 seems more likley to be the date manufactured. Just curious- what food was in the can? Hope you start to feel better soon. Try a few tbl spoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Very good for killing bacteria in the stomach.
  5. I sometimes have a need to travel through Sheffield-Penistone rd/Halifax Rd on a match day. Example: If a match starts at 3pm and runs for 2hrs.Plus, the time it takes for fans to leave ground and walk to cars, and drive out of the area. What time would it be before Penistone Rd & Halifax Rd is clear?
  6. Just out of interest, what sort of "distance travelled" would be used by the camera system to calculate the average speed of a vehicle?
  7. It almost sounds like the criminals are ahead of technology.
  8. It is a street I have been lots of times and known how to get there easily. I never knew the name of the street though, and now I do.
  9. Just been following route on Google maps from Halifax Rd, and it looks like it is Cowper cres.
  10. Anyone know what caused the crash on Handworth Rd this morning? I'm guessing the driver was taken ill. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-51293805
  11. Things are moving closer to nationalisation: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-51298820
  12. Travelling up Halifax road, left turn at "lights/crossroads where funeral director's is, go up this hill and turn RT before brow of hill, go along this street and there are a few blocks of flats to your left & right. This street with the flats on is also an hill-what is the street called?
  13. It is not a case of people wanting the BBC for free. It is a case of people not wanting the bbc free or otherwise.
  14. That is actually quite true for some of them. They are the group of people I really feel sorry for. It is bad enough living alone, but being elderly and alone without even a TV or radio is upsetting to contemplate. Where is the compassion of the BBC. At least be kind to the lonely eldery people, if not to the rest of us.
  15. Yes, you are welcome to have it, no problem.
  16. It has just been announced that Huawei is to be allowed to help build the 5G network in the UK. They will be prohibited from being involved in "sensitive areas" such as military and nuclear. The report said that the USA will not be happy with this decission, and that this may jeopardise the potential UK/US trade deal. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48032286
  17. The BBC is one of the few organisations that has not moved with the times, yet they affect a lot of the UK population. Who needs them? I would be happy for all their broadcasts to cease transmitting to my tv.
  18. Just had a very brief snow shower on high ground in Rotherham. Only lasted 5 minutes.
  19. Gary Lineker has called for the TV license fee to be voluntary. In an interview with the Guardian he said, " The annual charge was the BBC's fundamental problem. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/entertainment-arts-51270012
  20. @Baron99 A great initiative. If you are up that way again, and if you don't mind, please could you get me the email addy? Thanks.
  21. I was wondering if the message had intended to be legible and meaningful, such as "We are on our way, ETA 15.20hrs" for example. I did wonder if the message had somehow got scrambled. Am still puzzled by it.
  22. Let's hope there were cctv where the trains were parked up.
  23. I was reading about the dog walker that lost 5 dogs while out walking them. She claimed that the dogs had simply run off and never returned. Each dog was chipped. This seems a really strange case. The unfortunate owners feel that their dogs are no longer alive. My first thoughts when I read the article was that the dogs had been sold on. Very strange. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-51220730
