Re: Media Talk Forum Watch News and Information Board

And before anyone asks, I've only joined to protect my username and see the user list. I did the same thing for the same reasons. I do love how obvious the spam bots are, nearly all have a website that offers for sale Viagra and Cialis, and live in different regions for some reason... I take it Pet...

Re: The rise of the dodgy shop

I’m guessing these are just front for laundering money from drugs or something else, right? Yes. See also the hand car wash, cash only. You get these a lot in cities, and it's baffling when you see a barber shop open 24/7 (cash only) with nobody in it, no chance of anyone being in it and one guy si...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

In the world of television presentation, technical stuff is interesting - to have any interest and not do this as a job you need to be somewhere on a spectrum I've always thought. However ringing the SD Switch-off helpline to ask their Christmas plans for the barker message is a new one for me. I do...

Re: Emergency alerts

I attended a training course on being a JESIP incident commander a few weeks back, and the facilitators did mention this - the backend to make it happen has been what's caused the delay; each Cat 1 and Cat 2 responder agency has needed access to a portal to push these messages out, but not all Cat 2...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

The Great British Rail project may be scrapped. Significant impact on all regions as a result, i.e nothing will change. It may be, but it's more likely it will happen albeit in a less formal way. The DfT have been wanting to sack off the franchise model for some years, and the Network Rail name is ...

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...
