Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

Here in Newcastle, there are still load of buses advertising Little Mix: The Search as starting on 26 September. They must be getting on for a year old now, we’re certainly closer to 26 Sep 2021 than it is to when the series finished. I’m sure the BBC is delighted with this odd bit of pandemic distr...

Re: Bauer 'premium' stations – no ads, skip tracks

There's more on this on the Radio Today podcast. The live track "skipping" works by replacing whatever is playing with another streamed track, then re-joining the (slightly delayed) live feed at the point the "skipped" track ends. Quite a clever solution!

I also can’t taste any difference between the formulations, but then I’ll admit to being a complete heathen who can’t taste any difference between it and ‘proper’ coke either.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Have they paused Avios to Nectar conversion at the moment? I hear on the grapevine that they’re currently paused online. With many BA accounts still having old-style four digit PINs instead of passwords, they’re really quite hackable. This hasn’t previously been all that big an issue as most Avios ...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

People who kudos a post which criticises them!? Don’t understand at all. I don’t think I’ve done this specifically on TVForum, but I think it’s context-specific. Giving kudos to a post which contradicts you to say “oh, I hadn’t thought of it in those terms” or “I stand corrected” or “good point” or...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

What really takes the biscuit is bar staff and cafe staff wearing those stupid splash guard screens. They provide absolutely no protection from the virus on their own. The Government guidance has more faith in them than you: "...a clear visor that covers the face and provides a barrier between...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I'm confounded by the claim that Cummings sought "senior medical advice" which cleared him to drive back from Durham to London to return to work. We're therefore asked to accept the idea that he reported having problems with his eyesight, and a "senior medical advisor" confirmed—...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

It's taken the full year but we now seem to be in the position where only the mysterious Just Right remains in the older packaging I see Special K has now switched to packaging that doesn't feature the word "Kellogg's" at all on its front panel... apart from one letter, of course. https:/...
