  1. Anyone know if there is anywhere either internet based, or not too far from Sheffield, where you can configure your own TV cabinet - really struggling to find one that fits our requirements with speakers etc (mainly centre and subwoofer for the 5.1 system).
  2. HI all, Can anyone recommend someone to clear out a smallish shed & some rubble type stuff along with getting a washing machine downstairs, and disposing of it all? We wouldn't be able to assist at all, so are talking about at least two people to get the washing machine downstairs (though it is partly broken up, if you have tools you could take the concrete blocks off and probably do it as one person) edit: Trustworthy in that we dont want it flytipping!
  3. For the first minute there are, £6 one off charge, $3.60 for the first minute and then the phone providers access charge (wont even go into 118 numbers which can be well over £10 for a few seconds of calling). TPS takes a good while to have an effect because of how it works, it isnt immediate.
  4. Did you just make this up? They have ADSL (Unlimited), Fibre (Unlimited) and Fibre Extra (Unlimited)
  5. Is it the charger that came with it? I've seen them have problems with lower amperage chargers before.
  6. Just wondering if there is anyone here on the intake exchange (cabinet 71 to be precise) having any packet loss/speed issues (origin BB)? These are my TBB graphs 15th to today, they look to me to be congestion related (packet loss in the day and evening, clearish in the early hours & it doesn't matter if I am using the connection or not) but Origin assure me that the links I am running over have no capacity issues. http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/1b550cda70a1e65b98004d2ec6279739-15-11-2016.html http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/d8229c7373db0d4e822beaf2d5023ff5-16-11-2016.html http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/f6de6064236e610156738590b0b3b06e-17-11-2016.html http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/d35f4f6a1317e652150ac2be30522cb9-18-11-2016.html http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/76dd19f11374acf025011983a1f76390-19-11-2016.html http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/34c63ea074c77669a92e4e716e6c0726-20-11-2016.html Generally speaking I get around 20Mb (+/- 10Mb) of my 80Mb, with the odd time where it seems to work fine (as always, I finally got someone useful on the phone and got 60Mb...). Sync is ok, 73Mb, although this has gone down in the last few weeks from the full 80Mb Turns out this has been going on for some time, but cos i have two connections load balanced I hadn't really noticed - looking back it is better than it used to be, this was typical a couple of weeks ago: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/965970db4fc4593fd8870a9fb8215d60-07-11-2016.html
  7. Just as another note as well, yahoo requires a periodic sign in via their website - it may not be the change of password but the sign-in that fixed it.
  8. Just to add to the above, if you see it on every site, it is worth checking the date and time on your computer is correct - a security certificate is only valid for a certain period of time and if the clock is wrong the certificate will appear invalid.
  9. If you go into the router settings and click disconnect, then turn it off you are fine as your router basically sends a message to the exchange to tell it it is being turned off now. I do sometimes wonder why no-one has brought out a router with a button that does that for you.
  10. So you can walk into a shop and take what you want without paying because no contract exists? ---------- Post added 03-08-2016 at 20:56 ---------- You have entered into an agreement by using the website, just not a sales contract.
  11. But "handing over the money" isn't the same online as in a shop, thats the part you don't seem to get. The terms of use of the website may specify that an acceptance email is not necessarily the start of a contract in terms of selling something - but there is a difference between accepting the terms of a website (by using it) and the start of a contract to sell. Where that is the case (and it usually is the case if lawyers have been involved in the writing up of the website t&cs) even the handing over of the money and an acceptance email is considered to only be an offer of a contract (from you, the prospective buyer) - the sellers still have to accept it at a later stage for their to be a valid sales contract.
  12. IIRC it is an offer to purchase - so if the company don't supply the goods they obviously cant keep the money.
  13. I read it differently tbh - to say that the order has not been accepted at that point, and therefore there can't be a contract formed.
  14. They can and do change when a contract comes into effect though. eg http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/money-saving-tips/10602641/Price-glitches-Do-retailers-have-to-honour-pricing-mistakes.html
  15. Generally the terms and conditions of online shopping state that the contract is only in place once it is delivered, so no they don't have to honour the incorrect price. Its different to a shop where the contract is formed once payment is made.
  16. All of which is redundant anyway, even if you were correct they have no obligation to inform you of work happening on a street that isn't yours....if your street was listed then they have met your (incorrect) interpretation of the rules.
  17. Given that wholesale line rental prices are getting cheaper, I think we can pretty much say that it isn't wholesale that makes back the BT Sport money. They are £17 a year cheaper that in 2010. Connection charges are far cheaper than they were a few years ago. BT retail on the other hand...

  19. I wouldn't be surprised if 98 was actually fairly safe now, I can't see many modern viruses working on it.
  20. Also I don't think there is a single rule that would allow fair use (dealing) of an entire work, isn't all fair use in the UK based on excepts/extracts?
  21. Kind of funny that if you run some security stuff the test can't complete
  22. Just remember though, the people beeping you don't necessarily know about the other lights, so from what they can see you are just sat at a green light for no reason, might think you are sat playing with your phone or adjusting your radio
  23. That's wheree it gets you though - they do care what they look like, and spend a lot fo time getting ready, but the look they are going for is not one that you recognise as smart. But is is usually specifically worked out to look like that.
  24. I would tell you all a joke about UDP, but I'm not sure that you would get it.
