They will get the opportunity again when she comes back with the same diatribe in a few days. EU has already stated that they are not prepared to tweak anything, they already have a deal and they are sticking to it, at the moment.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Thanks Maz. Just got back from Jimmy's. We got a taxi from the station up to the hospital after a bit of lunch. He took us more or less right to the correct bit where the scanner is located. Mobile scanner is run by Alliance Medical and is a two unit setup, one trailer mounted job for the MRI scanne...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

MRI scanner for me today over at St James's in Leeds. I am hoping for a good outcome on the results, this one is the first post op and will become the benchmark for the annual scans after this one. Non contrast as far as I am aware, nothing in my appointment letter to say otherwise.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Happy Birthday Sue.

Today I will mainly be travelling to St James's in Leeds for my first post op MRI. Car, train and taxi for this one as it's a bit of a warren up at Jimmy's so we will let the taxi driver get us to the right area.

Re: Shed Matters 3

Nice one P, I would give one house room. I used one for twenty years when I was in the TV trade, ranged for valves as your example. The later models which were cheaper construction and ranged for semiconductor and IC work had a slow cut out. You saw plenty of those models with bent pointers when acc...

Interesting Tiz but I was referring to the short form representative word "OK". What does it actually stand for and where do we get it from?

Yes it's part of the phone package if you use Talk Talk. You just have to enable the feature in your account, a tick box job. You can add numbers to the blocked list directly from your phone, don't need any dedicated buttons just the # key. You can manage the list online if you wish. We have a coupl...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I still have a degree of numbness down my right side, mainly in the upper arm and neck. I am told that it can take a long time after neurosurgery for this to dispel. It has improved dramatically though in the last 12 weeks since my surgery. I have my first post op, (3 months) MRI scan coming up next...

Re: Spam email

If your Talk Talk package includes telephone, the call barring facility is already available. You just need to go into your account online and enable it. You only need the # key on your phone to add a number to the barred list.

Re: Shed Matters 3

Just a point Stanley, if the bore goes past the trunnion point as far as the touch hole the cannon can still be fired. All it would need is a well rammed ball which would rest on the trunnion pin and a slightly larger charge of powder.

Re: Spam email

Call barring works on the line rather than the individual phone and is a much better bet if you have more than one receiver. We have that on our Talk Talk service. You can bar from the phone with a key press or go online to your account and manage and add to the list from there. It has a friendly nu...

Re: OBITUARIES

Indeed Sue, the whole of the regional program last night was dedicated to her. It must have been a very aggressive form of the disease, she looked fine in November when she was doing the children in need walk with Pudsey. Very sad, she leaves a hubby and two kids.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

It's on a par with what I pay Gloria and I get 39Mbps solid. You are about the same distance as I am from a fibre cabinet. 200M of copper is negligible according to the Open Reach guy who I had the other week, the test gear they use is ineffective on shorter distances. I still made the point that it...

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

Depends where the nearest fibre cabinet is in relation to the premises, as opposed to copper all the way back to the exchange. I think Gloria is in a fairly rural location a long way from the exchange. The fibre cabinet maybe a lot nearer.
