Anyone know anything about BT Homehubs???
Posted: 4/21/2012 3:59:29 PM

does the home hub have more than one socket for ethernet?


It does, but far easier to go for the wireless option.

Why would you need two hubs?
One hub should be ok for both computers.

Jeremy Clarkson say's they should be shot.
Posted: 12/4/2011 7:32:17 AM
The dreadfully nauseating, pc One Show got what it deserved for inviting him on. If his comments had been made on Have I Got News For You, which I guess is viewed by a completely different audience, we certainly wouldn't have had this total overreaction.

Also, I wonder how much of this hatred of Clarkson is fueled by envy?

You can be charged with driving without due care and attention if you are seen eating and driving.

You don't have to be involved in a RTA.

Smoking and Driving
Posted: 11/20/2011 1:00:15 PM

Eating, drinking, smoking behind the wheel of a car is not banned nor a criminal offence. However to cause an accident whilst doing any of the above could put you at risk of having a "driving without due care and attention" charge against you!
FACT! lol

The Govt dont set the questions. So u cant blame them. As it was a yank company doing the census this time.


It was Lockheed Martin who were awarded the contract to manage the 2011 census.
Why would such a contract go to an American arms company?

Anyway I've still got the completed form here if anyone wants to call and collect it.

I'd just got back from New York, and was talking to a friend about my few months out there when my son phoned me to tell me what had happened.

It's was only a few days after I'd been on the Statten Island ferry taking pics of the twin towers.

A sad day indeed.

Anyone know of any good holiday companies for single travellers?
Posted: 9/28/2010 11:21:51 AM
Check out Green Tortoise Tours. Based in San Francisco they run coach trips off the beaten track in North America, Mexico, Alaska and Canada. It's a great way of meeting people and seeing great sights in unusual places. They do a coast to coast trip (Boston to San Francisco or the other way round.) It's inexpensive, most meals are included, accommodation is on the coach, it coverts into sleeping areas as you travel overnight, with the occasional night spent in a hotel.
If you are ok 'roughing it' to some degree I can highly recommend it.

Just google Green Tortoise Tours for more info.

* * 3rd Country Walk - Mam Tor, Castleton .... Easter Saturday 3rd April * *
Posted: 3/16/2010 11:33:41 AM

JohnnyXXL has suggested we have a camping moment on one of our walks..

... ridge poles up on a saturday afternoon, campfire bbq that night, pub 5 yards away if desired, and walk round Fernilee and Errwood resevoirs the next day. Those who are tentless can assemble usual time next morning for the walk. maybe the end of May ? I know the campsite owner, and I know he charges a very small pitch fee. anyone interested in that ?


there seems to be some 'concern' about the word 'mountain' and what the altitude is up on the Tor - according to the enquiries Im getting in my emails. Well, it's only a baby mountain, you don't need spike shoes, guide ropes and carabiners, or sherpas or oxygen tanks.. but do expect it to be windy and breezy so pack waterproofs too.


I've been on one of the camping weekends with POF, to the Lakes.
It was great fun and a really good way to get to know everyone.

BTW, if anyone is concerned about the height issue on this walk, the summit
of Mam Tor is just a short distance from the road.

It's a shame the meet didnt happen, but given the conditions early this
morning I think it was a wise decision to cancel.
Managed to get out with the hound, he was raring to go, but stayed this
side of the Snake Pass, around Glossop.
I look forward to the rearranged meet.

women who lie about being raped
Posted: 11/2/2009 11:52:35 AM
One of my son's friends was accused of rape some time ago.
He was put on police bail pending enquiries for nearly ten months.
During that time the conditions of his bail were that he could not
return to his home, or home town for that matter. He had to spend
that time living with friends and also had to give up his job.

All charges were subsequently dropped.

TV License robbery
Posted: 10/22/2009 10:40:47 AM

Daylight robbery! It's getting ridiculous.

There is a shop in scotland who have been in the papers in the last few days where the Performing Rights people demanded they get a license because the woman who works behind the counter sings songs all day .... after a bit of media coverage they have apologised and sent her flowers. It's laughable

It seems that a TV license is not just that anymore. I can't understand how owning a mobile phone makes you liable to paying nearly £150 a year.


Yes we've had that crew onto us as well. We ditched the radio and now we
all singalong as we work.

Thats what we told em anyway.

TV License robbery
Posted: 10/22/2009 10:37:41 AM

ou only need a tv licence for your pc, laptop or mobile phone if you use any of these to watch television programmes as they are being shown on tv, if you don't watch tv programmes on them you don't need a licence, for more information see the link below

http://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/information/nolicence.jsp


Thanks for that link, but the letter I received made no mention of that.
It just stated that if I had any of the following, I had to buy a license.

Television
DVD Recorder
PC or Laptop
Mobile phone

Posted: 10/22/2009 10:25:14 AM
I have just received a letter at work off the tv license people asking why I dont
have a license. At first I was just going to ignore it as we have a small workshop
and showroom, but of course no television...then I read on.
It appears if I have either a pc, laptop or mobile phone I am legally obliged to
buy a tv license at around £140.
How can this be justified, I mean are there any businesses that dont use a pc
or a mobile phone?
Seems like a form of robbery to me!!!

nothing saying once we get to Castleton we take stock, and should all be willing, we could march up Winnat's Pass


Nobody 'marches' up the Winnat's.
But if you do stroll up there, turn lef at the top, follow a path for about
half a mile, left again into Cave Dale, then back down into Castleton.

A great walk taking in two very impressive gorges.

A walk in the Peak District August 15th
Posted: 7/29/2009 3:09:53 PM

Secret worship of what?


It was used by a group of non-conformists in the 17th century to
worship in secret and escape persecution.
They used a stone barn for their worship but had to have look outs
watching for any signs of approaching kings soldiers.
In fact every first Sunday of July a ceremony is held there, hymns
are sung and water is passed round in a two handled cup.
Alport Castles Farm is also the birthplace of Hannah Mitchell, 1871.
She was of the six women to form the Women's Social and Political
Movement, later to be know as the suffragettes.

A walk in the Peak District August 15th
Posted: 7/29/2009 11:29:00 AM

I recently did a harsh 13.1 miles saddleworth morr walk ( some peat bog) from Dovestone, greenfield. Oldham (yes it comes under Peak District) It was a great dayout with people I have walked with from a walkingforum. Before that we did a 9 mile walk from near Fairholme, Ladybower, we went to Alprt Castle


Sounds good.
Alport Castles is well worth a visit, it is in fact the uk's largest landslide and
used to be a place of secret worship.
Another good and interesting walk in that vicinity is across Bleaklow from
the Snake Pass following the Pennine way for a short distance, then heading
off west towards the Wain Stones where you can still see the wreckage of
an American B29 which crashed in 1949 killing all crew.
There are in fact 55 crash sites in the Dark Peak area although few of them
still have remains of the aircraft scattered around as this site does.

You're right, a bit hasty of me and I apologise to the host.
There are plenty of strolls around Castleton should people want to
extend the walk. Cave Dale and the castle being just one of them.
