Re: Security Messages

Had loads of these over the years all deleted without even being opened, on a similar note I keep getting phone calls from "Microsoft" that are actually scammers telling me my pc is not working but if I give them my credit card details it can be fixed over the phone.

Re: Waddington Airshow 2014 participation

Does that mean no chance of the Swedish historic flight coming this year or is the historic flight separate to the main air force ?

Re: The Angry Thread...

The thing with taking photos without asking is it is theft pure and simple. That leads me onto something else that annoys me is the increasing amount of theft and shoplifting being shown on tv for entertainment. You only had to have seen benefits street to see a film crew following a couple of bloke...

Re: 2014 Typhoon Display Scheme

Re: The Angry Thread...

I don't find the use of mate by someone I don't know as "overly familiar and making assumptions" but I accept we all have our own views on this one, personally I prefer people using mate to Sir when serving me in shops or train stations or wherever it may be. I find it more relaxed and inf...

Re: The Angry Thread...

Being addressed as "mate" by shop workers and bar staff is pretty high up my list. Went for lunch at a very well-to-do gastropub yesterday, and the waiter addressed me as "mate" the whole time. If he'd said "sir", he might have got a tip. I really don't see why people ...

Re: The Angry Thread...

Well it proves my point if nothing else, I struggle with spelling and grammar and often get it wrong not through a lack of trying but for some reason it just does not come at all easy to me.

Re: Waddington Airshow 2014 participation

It would be good if they sent a Gripen seeing as the Czech Republic who normally send one to Waddo wont be coming this year, the last couple of years Saab have sent patrol aircraft for the static display so I would expect that to be the case again this year.
