Re: Forum Maintenance

I guess there's room for it and it would save an extra click on the quick links menu..the last post missing icon(on phone) is a bit of a pain though I can get it on my android chrome browser so perhaps it is browser dependent?

Re: Forum Maintenance

I would say the old look myself just because it was distinctive and I was used to it, I like the quick links menu though and this format might work better on phones:-)

Re: PC And Tech problems

If system restore doesn't work it does sound mystifying. ?.
Can't think of anything but the usual online scanners, bitdefender etc...

Re: PC And Tech problems

I've always been an android chap, recent upgraded my 7" galaxy tab(version 1) to an 8" galaxy tab 3 - it only cost £129 after various cashbacks so was a bargain and great for portability and light browsing though not as zippy as I'd hoped. The extra screen size really does make a difference so I'd s...

Re: PC And Tech problems

Seems like a bargain harry so I'd go for it! I think I have used a Panasonic wet/dry in the past and was quite happy with it. Wet/dry is definitely the way to go so you are on the right track there. I currently use a Philips wet/dry(with the 3 round heads like most Philips shavers) - it's one of the...

Re: Anyone for Killer? " Killer Chat Thread "

Best if people post their intentions but I was planning to just treat anyone who didn't post at all as having played 2 jokers (unless, like Russ, I'd agreed in advance that they could catch up in week 2 due to being away this week). Probably a good idea Harry, if I find a bet I like I'll post it up...

Virgin cable a bit patchy here from time to time but probably no worse then the others - I'm only on the 30MB service with L TV(free tivo 1TB box) and no landline, not bad value @ £21.50/month (£20 off the regular price) - if anyone is thinking of switching and lives in a cable area then give me a s...

thanks for replying alan:) I'll have a look online to see what's available - I had heard about some shall we say "grey-market" decoder boxes but not sure if they still exist or has the level of encryption advanced enough to make them not viable ;)
