    The Spitfire Factory

    Yes watched them all. A truly fascinating series, with lots of little insights. You have to admire the tenacity of the guys who own and run the Sptfire Factory
  2. Not just the Sun George, it’s reported in many media streams. Another example of those in power (of any political persuasion) who believe they are superior and more worthy than us mere mortals. Worth noting that these alleged frauds were committed before she became an MP, but if true would make her not fit to be an MP
  3. Labour really not having a good day today..... https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13048307/labour-mp-housing-fraud-flat/

    Buying a new TV. Which way to go?

    Horses for courses Phil. The Apple products are good in the field that you work in, but in many fields they just don’t cut the mustard compared to Wintel machines, not to add that you will be paying a massive premium to use them - the TCO of Wintel is much lower. The Automatic syncing that you talk of is also available in the Wintel world, it’s not an Apple exclusive. There are many things that you need to consider when buying a computer, either portable or desktop, what is right for an individual or organisation is highly unlikely to be right for another.
  6. Hi Neila, they wouldn’t do that for me. The App was £20 / Month on a rolling 1 Month contract. I didn’t really want the app, I wanted it on my Sky box so that I could record and watch at my leisure as I will be working when some of these events are on. They know they have me over a barrel as such as I can’t cancel my broadband due to the monopoly they have in place in my area in terms of ISP
  7. Cheers Tim, I'll give that a go
  8. The only sport we watch on BT is the Speedway, so as its coming up to the BSI 8 weeks of action we thought we would get BT sports. Now we live in an area where there is a BT monopoly for broadband as its full fibre and BT have monopoly agreement in place (well actually its Openreach, but the same thing....) whereby BT & Plusnet are the only options open to us as ISP's. You would think its fairly logical to be able to get BT Sport added to my Sky subscription fairly easily. If you go to the BT website there is an option to view BT Sport to a SKY box for £29.99 a Month, on a Monthly rolling contract. Great I thought, can see all of the SGP & SON in HD for £59.98 as I would only need 2 Months subscription. Guess what, if you are on BT Broadband, this offer isnt open to you, instead we'll do you 2 years at £20 a Month in SD, If you want HD its an extra £6.50 a Month for 21 Months (You get 3 Months free).

    BLM Uk protest marches

    When Henka Gustafsson first came to the UK for King's Lynn, He used to navigate around the country using a McDonalds map picked up on one of the first trips we did. Of course McDonalds used to 'sponsor' trays for use in the pits.....

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    He did Tellboy. We collected them on our trips. It’s worth mentioning they were all empty by the time they got onto the shelves on his wall

    King's Lynn Stars 2020

    For many of you who attend Saddlebow Road regularly you will know Merv Beckett. He has sadly passed away after a battle with cancer. The Lynn news are running piece on him tomorrow, and I figured you may be interested in the article https://www.lynnnews.co.uk/news/tributes-to-much-loved-kings-lynn-scout-leader-a-friend-to-everyone-9119484/

    But whats the betting that he will quite happily play music, (of colour typically) that will use the N word in their lyrics ?

    Explosion in Beirut

    And of course, it was a favoured tool of the IRA in past conflicts

    Explosion in Beirut

    BBC website reporting 2750 tonnes of Ammonium Nitrate had been stored in a warehouse there for a number of years after being offloaded from an impounded ship. Thoughts are with all of those affected...
  15. The lockdown has been as normal for me in terms of work, and that has involved travelling on public transport at times. Most people have been wearing face coverings on trains & tubes. There are some that noticably feel that they are immune from Covid 19 and dont need face masks and dont need to socially distance. Quite a few Asians, transport staff (especially TFL - apparently the rules only apply if travelling by train / tube, not working on them) and Police, especially Transport Police. Most other people seem to be sticking to the rules and wearing masks without issue. I'm guessing shops will be the same.
