  1. This basically. Many eBay sellers say they're UK based when in fact the products are dispatched from China or elsewhere.
  2. They have to run to a schedule and be at certain stops at certain times. When few people request to get on and there is little traffic they have to pause, they're not taxis to get you there as quick as possible. You'd be pretty annoyed if you went to a bus stop for your bus and discovered it went past 15 minutes ago because the roads were empty.
  3. ..and when you flash them, they look at you gone out People just don't understand or do car maintenance any more. It's like people driving with no lights at all in fog. My car has automatic lights but the manual specifically states the need to use them manually in such conditions since the sensor only registers light, which can be plenty even in fog. Don't get me started on people that indicate right on a roundabout when they're not going right, but that's unrelated.
  4. Also letters have been taking ages to be delivered. I've just moved and some letters have taken 3 weeks to arrive. It's possible the original bill is stuck or very late and the notice arrived first.
  5. You can blame sat navs for some of it. Coming from Chesterfield, LH lane is left and straight over, middle lane is straight over and right and RH lane is right only. However, I have Google Maps navigation on sometimes and it showed the middle lane as left and straight over. I always use the LH lane to go straight over, almost ended up in the side of a Merc that went left from the middle lane. I swear people pay no attention to any signage or road markings at times.
  6. You can resize partitions from within Disk Management in Windows usually.
  7. VPNs still have a set of IPs so Netflix can block a particular VPN if they choose to.
  8. What's the message it comes back with in the browser when you try to get to it?
  9. I guess it depends, it is just wax at the end of the day, you'll probably find making it that bit warmer and soaking for longer eventually works.
  10. I do hope this is a lesson learned for the OP not to believe everything they read on the internet.
  11. Every time I've been to get my ears syringed their recommendations are once a month, or more often is use warm olive oil to allow the wax to soften and come out of it's own accord over night. They've all dismissed Otex and other such products as unnecessary expense. You can get olive oil drops but it's cheaper just to buy your own dropper and heat up the oil. Just be careful not to put hot oil in your ear. Boots charge £50.
  12. It will have done, the restart and shut down options always change to restart and update etc. Plus you get the little notification icon saying your computer needs to restart. You can go into Settings->Windows Update->Update History to see what it installed
  13. Your solution is to cease the scaremongering by scaremongering? I live across the road from a busy shop and there has been zero panic buying. Or actually any change in behaviour at all.
  14. There is no travel ban. You are advised against it that's all.
  15. I'll be doing option 1, with a switch in the loft and then wiring several rooms up.
  16. Actually far easier to pay money into my bank account at the local post office rather than the bank. They have a car park and I'm not having to stand in a queue as long as the bank gets. Plus they're great for posting stuff overseas, yes I can do that online but usually need to know which specific regulations my goods meet and specify them, don't need that with a customs declaration. I really really cannot recommend Parcelforce at the moment though. Utter bleep, parcel first disappeared from tracking until I raised a complaint, didn't meet the 48 service and arrived damaged. Despite raising a Damaged goods issue they don't seem to understand the difference between not working and damaged and keep asking for a video of something not working.
  17. Their SSL certificate is broken....which is why
  18. You should be able to find the manual on the manufacturers website then you'll see what comes with it. As L00b says, failing that you'll need a signal convertor, plenty on amazon/ebay etc.
  19. My car doesn't use sensors for tyre pressure, it uses an average of the road difference (or something) over the 4 wheels. There are no actual sensors in the wheels etc. If they it falls below a threshold the warning light comes on. Also wondering how this turned into a Buy British now rant? Many new main dealer parts like an entire bumper can quite easily cost several hundred pounds, it depends on the model and age usually.
  20. You get some very light ultrabooks but you're looking at more money. A budget would help with recommendations.
  21. https://status.o2.co.uk/ usually pretty good, you can also subscribe to alerts so you get texted/emailed when there's a problem.
  22. Maybe a bad shutdown? After all, it's just a computer running an operating system, still possible for these things to happen.
  23. Mostly due to people being unable to sell in lockdown for one thing, With the new regulations in place it seems estate agents have a backlog of houses to sell/value so the housing market is rather busy right now.
