Re: Forum Content Nobody Sees

Did not realise it was your article as it does not have your name on it. Just the names of 6 other people. I do also think its wrong that it does not mention who has written what article or properly credit people. However my point above still stands regardless. http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z2...

Re: Forum Content Nobody Sees

I think there should be at least 1 page each month on events. Perhaps 2 at a push. As for obscure systems they used to just get a 2 page spread which seemed about right. 6 pages on an obscure system which most people probably have no interest in seems a bit heavy, and could explain why people are lo...

Re: Forum Content Nobody Sees

What's the point of Events having its own section? It would be a forum section with about 3 posts. The upcoming events post is out of date and has not been updated since August last year, and many recent past events and quite a few upcoming events have not been posted about on these forums. This com...

Re: British Gas

I have moved energy companies every time between renewals (when fixed price contracts have ended) as I like collecting Meercats. I have been on NPower twice now, but have found their billing system the most complicated/confusing/bizarre, to the point even when I was on direct debit they were unable ...

Re: Royal "dipwad" Mail to reduce parcel prices...

Collect+ is Yodel/HDNL/DHL Express (say no more -etc) Not sure where you got this information but its incorrect. Collect+ is owned by PayPoint ....the company that have all the instant payment machines in all the newsagents (which is why those self same newsagents all now offer collect+ as a servic...

Re: Data Usage on Mobiles

Tried three once but suffered with poor signal coverage. Could not get a signal where I lived. Perhaps they have improved since then. Currently on a Giff Gaff £10 a month deal (not unlimited data - think its 1GB/500 Mins/Unlim Sexts) but sure they offer unlimited data deals), which uses O2 network a...

Re: Royal "dipwad" Mail to reduce parcel prices...

I am in two minds about using the cheap couriers. Recently sent a couple of parcels using Hermes using a local Parcel Locker. Noticed there was a problem when they had not been collected from the Locker and contacted support online (phone support is 10p per min premium number!). Was told they would ...

Re: PLAY EXPO (formerly Replay), 12-13 October 2013, Manches

I now know the Pioneer Laseractive makes the CD-i look like the ultimate gaming machine, and have a hankering to buy a nuon DVD player just to play Tempest 3000 again. Also kudos to whoever picks the weird game to play on the Japanese Famicom every year, I enjoyed that Sherlock Holmes thing even th...

IMPORTANT: The Folly Bridge Inn Pub has now been renamed to The White House. It is in the same location and the same building. It just has a different name.

Trying to create a Mass Debate are we? If there is an issue I am sure Kieren will contact me in due course. The event itself is bigger than anyone who has been involved with it in the past, present or future.
