Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

Another thing to speculate on is the consequence of the lock down. Due to 50% of the world population being in lock down and unable to pursue their normal daily activity, there is the potential to see a spike in new arrivals in December / January. This is an experiment on a global scale. Oh I would...

TalkTalk / Teamviewer

Anybody else on here use TalkTalk broadband and tried to use Teamviewer from home? My employer has bought in alternating shifts for working from home, using teamviewer to remotely access the PCs in the office. It's the turn of my colleague today and he has TalkTalk broadband, and he can't access the...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

I work in financial services in a non-customer facing role. So reading the indignant rants about insurance companies from ignorant people who don't understand insurance terms, conditions and exclusions has been funny. We've been told to work from home for the foreseeable but as everything i do is o...

Re: COVID-19: Your Thoughts and it's effects on you.

My daughter is still at primary school, but out of her 32 pupil year 5 class, there were 10 children absent yesterday. I'm not sure about the rest of the school. Talking to another parent yesterday, her daughter came in from break complaining that her chest hurt. The school promptly phoned said pare...

Re: Will air shows be cancelled because of coronavirus

"Give us your freedom and we will protect you" This whole Covid-19 thing was pre-planned. Create a problem, glean the reaction the offer the solution. It's so bloody obvious. I presume you're being silly, if not then 'being silly', that's very polite, I can't say that was the first thing ...

Re: Airfix 1/72 Vickers Valiant

There's currently only 1 selling on eBay, for £110!! not sure i can justify that :dizzy: Although with the recent Victor and now the Vulcan, lets hope Airfix complete the trio with a re-release of this.

Re: 2019 General Election

Most have day 1 rhetoric. Most don't start to action on day 1 though. Not sure Theresa May actually rolled anything out in her time and Cameron wasn't much more effective as evidenced by his leaving speech where he was scraping the barrel to find a legacy. Oh I think we're all pretty clear on what ...

We need more young people to be angry with those in charge if you ask me (whic...

RE Jaffas cake / biscuit, its simple. When a cake goes stale it goes hard, when a biscuit goes stale it goes soft. Stale Jaffas are hard, ergo they're cakes.

I'm planning on coming on the Saturday or Sunday, which I have done for the last 7 years in a row. Normally a better day stands out, but this year they're similarly patchy. Of course the forecasts talk of rain, but that can easily clear to blue skies and only affect the display for half an hour. Do...
