    You think of it, I can do it.
  1. When you say you use it to clean your paving a lot, how often is a lot, and how much paving is there? Do you intend using it for anything else? The cheap ones do the job, complete pot luck as to whether they last more than 12 Months.
  2. The Android version is no better, and I remember having the same troubles with Mozilla for Windows Mobile some years ago. I'm sure it will get better, although I'm sceptical of most things so maybe not.
  3. You shouldn;t need to use any CD's from Tiscali. Try right clicking on the network icon and seeing what the problem is. May just be disabled and need enabling.
  4. Absolute nonsense. You can tax your car early so you can use your insurance before it runs out or you can do it online.
  5. That was my first thought. I tend to swerve online shops that make delivery charges difficult to find as well or only calculate them at the end of the checkout process. If you subsidise your postage you can state a fixed P&P price and then alter the item price to make up any differences either way. It's what I tend to do when selling stuff through eBay, either make it up or put it as free postage, either way the buyer pays for it somewhere.
  6. That's about as cheap as you'll get, well, you could probably find someone who'll do it for £199 if you look hard enough but I wouldn't one fitted on price only. I'd be looking at £5-600 minimum with service contracts etc... hence why I don't do domestic any more. Generally, you get what you pay for at the end of the day.
  7. Tad excessive that, they're reasonably average all round.
  8. Ask for a second opinion on anything condemned by the tester. IME most people wielding a PAT tester haven't a clue how to use it and either pass or fail things incorrectly, test things that don't need testing and then condemn them, or don't test half the stuff they're supposed to. Obviously they'll not be touching anything of yours so you may not want to get involved.
  9. You leave Barry Scot alone. He's not what he once was, I'll give you that.
  10. I remember that, the name of it escapes me currently......
  11. If you don't use it then there's no need to log in and check it. If you still have it registered with websites as your email address then I'll let you work out what's best to do.
  12. HSBC aren't all that business orientated IME. Straight forward accounts they can do, anything slightly out of the ordinary and it all goes pear shaped. I had similar experiences with Lloyds, Barclays on the other hand are much easier to deal with and actually have people employed in branches to do more than just serve at the counter.
  13. You can't really just work out an hourly rate for jobs that take 20 minutes. People seem to forget this, charge for 20 minute job multiplied by 3 isn't an hourly rate.
  14. The people employed (or are self employed) as sparkies will have had many jobs where trying to save a couple of quid has turned out to be false economy. I have no problem with people doing DIY, but if you have to come on here first and ask random members of the public what the best thing to do is now you're confused about it then I would recommend you get someone in (preferably in advance of you dismantling the place). If you are competent enough to just swap the switches with no drama, and can do it correctly and safely, then crack on.
