  1. OK...I'll ask. What message does number 4 send?
  2. Sorted - thank you to all for your help. In the end, it was exactly as written - once he supplied the new and old insurance paperwork, the officer was satisfied that it was simply a typographical error and no further action was taken. Nice to see a sensible outcome
  3. Mods - apologies in advance if this is classed as against the forum rules - I'm honestly not sure!? Just looking for some advice! Can anyone offer some advice for my brother-in-law with regards to insurance? He has a little scooter which gets him from A to B and has recently renewed the insurance policy on it. Unfortunately, when he's renewed it, he's typed the wrong registration plate accidentally on the website. His registration starts "CX" and he's typed "CV" in. He was stopped by an ANPR Police Car last night and given a presenter notice. He accepts that it is his mistake and he can modify his insurance so that it displays the correct insurance from today. The annoying thing is that the vehicle that he has insured that starts with CV is actually a car and not a motorbike, but the website does not run a registration check to confirm the vehicle make and model. They suggest that even though they supply bike insurance, they were not in a position to inform him that they've insured a car instead. He can prove that he had intention to insure the bike - he just made a mistake on the paperwork. Can anyone suggest his best course of action?
  4. is waiting for a start date. Please god, make it soon!

  5. Social worker: "Glen honey, I got a question for you. What do you do for a living? Quagmire: "I got a question for you. Why are you still here?" The best character on TV. Why they didn't do a spinoff about Quagmire instead of Cleveland is absolutely beyond me!
  6. Is what I get when I google that
  7. Outstanding. Whoever added the Rocky music is clearly a genius!
  8. What would that lead to?
  9. Who says size counts. Many a time has my trusted 3" Dolby LED torch got me into our storage warehouse in pitch black!
  10. Of course all northerners are law breakers. Like everyone from Wigan is a pie-eater and everyone from Liverpool is a thief. You are, infact, an arse. Buggar off back to the hole from which you emerged from.
  11. Congratulations Ironhand! Best of luck for Monday!
  12. Have a look at this desktop PC made by Sony. They're pretty expensive but fantastic pieces of kit, we have one in work. It's wall mountable so doesn't take up much space but also comes with a table-top stand. It has a wireless keyboard & mouse and comes with a remote control for when you want to use it as a TV. Has a twin freeview tuner (watch one digital channel and record another at the same time) and a Blu-Ray player built in for Full HD viewing. Best thing is, it can be used as a regular Full HD TV - so if someone brings the X-Box/PS3 around, you can plug em into the back of it. To sum up : :smiley_notworthy: :smiley_notworthy: :smiley_notworthy: :smiley_notworthy: :smiley_notworthy: :smiley_notworthy: I can't overstate how good it is...if I had the money I'd buy one in a heartbeat...but it's £1400
  13. Yeah, same here. It's the adverts supplied through the forum, and the page will not load below the first advert in each individual thread. The adverts supplied through "Really Fab Media" aren't loading and it's delaying IE from opening anything below it. Maybe worth arguing the toss with the company that supply the adverts because it's really bloody annoying lol! I've switched to Chrome at home (that even rhymes, whoop!) but I can't use the site in work now It's a problem on IE6 and IE8. Shout at ReallyFabMedia, their adverts are ruining the website! <edit> It's the "Uniform Dating" advert specifically that's causing the problem. It's supplied through and their website is down from what looks like a DOS attack. God I am sad. </edit> <edit2> Their site has definately been hacked. Have a look at this...</edit2>
  14. Does it depend on the time of call / to what kind of number? Call charges at different times vary in price (peak/off peak), and vary even more if you're calling a mobile internationally, for example. Do the cards just come with a fixed amount of credit which could in theory get you the 40 minutes depending on what call you make?
