Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I haven’t and won’t yet make a decision as to which one to join. I’m sad that TVLF has finished tbh, it was going well I thought. I know it’s a bit late now but maybe it could be brought back in another way. I’m yet to join any new site until I know a ‘winner’ - but I honestly think since the closur...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I have always wondered, in the days when Sainsbury's stores were branded "J Sainsbury", did people used to say "I am just popping off to J Sainsbury" or did they still say "I am just popping off to Sainsbury's"? My nan would and did for a long time but it seemed to var...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

It's not a brand new concept - there is also one in Manchester near Piccadilly Square and I know of at least one other in London, at Wood Green in Haringey. It does look great, but I can't see it being rolled out anywhere except busy urban areas where there is enough footfall to keep it busy - espe...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

It is weird that I'm excited that the Elizabeth Line is close to opening? The videos I've seen look incredible. The current rumour is the Jubilee weekend, or the Monday after. Another rumour is of a night service akin to Night Tube through the Central sector. One of the best things about my work is...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

I am surprised none of the other UK cities have adopted the TfL approach but maybe it's on a case by case basis. https://www.tfwm.org.uk/ An interesting arrangement, they're part of the WMCA, but have bus franchising powers, as well as control over some rail routes and trams. They also seem to have...

Re: Windows 9 is now Windows 10

Relatedly, the mystery of that Windows XP OOBE (title.wma) theme came from - which I must have Googled every year since 2001 - was solved a couple of years ago, with this upload . It wasn't written for Windows XP at all, and rather was just a track they had lying around since Windows 98. There is a...

Re: Local Newspaper Feeds

To be fair that's probably the result of the police press officers delaying releasing things: https://www.humberside.police.uk/news/two-arrested-money-laundering-and-drugs-offences Dated 8th Feb, despite the policing activity taking place on the 3rd Feb, Assuming they were RUI within the 24 hour PAC...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

The ORR rail station stats were released today. Some staggering figures were released where Covid really did change everything where some London interchange stations performed better this year than the main terminal stations. Stratford in East London was the most used rail station in the UK, follow...

Just noticed this gem And I'm not a 'boy", I'm the first LGBTQ+ person on this forum. A genderfluid abrosexual. Also a reason why they did this, maybe it's because of corona https://tvliveforum.com/viewtopic.php?p=41396#p41396 Either we're into new levels of diversity and they're totally genuin...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Since when has not liking something the BBC do been seen as 'BBC bashing' - in fact I think that phrase is manufactured by BBC employees that feel some loyalty towards their employer or those that can't see when they're doing wrong. People need to accept that just as some people love the new BBC log...

Is today the day of the forum works ahead of the BBC rebrand? Because my screen has gone back to the standard phpBB template and I'm showing as logged in as different people.
