Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I think a further extension of the lockdown to the end of April is inevitable, but from May we'll go back to where we were before it - that is restaurants, bars and pubs still shut, social distancing still being required whilst outside but most people able to go back to work and to travel around. I...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

There must be high street M&S Foodhalls up and down the country that are completely dead, not immediately near any sizeable residential areas. The one near me in Westfield is lucky to have a reasonable amount of residential nearby but I haven't had to queue once and it's always very well stocked. Th...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

The UTV thread has gone into full on paranoia mode, many people convinced that's it, the end of UTV as we know it. Despite it being patently obvious is being done to keep manpower as minimal as possible, particularly on things as unimportant as this. And they've quite literally said on idents and on...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

Seeing everyone have to learn the majesty of Microsoft Teams in a week has been an experience I don't mind Teams for the most part. What I do absolutely fucking hate is Citrix which my company uses for shared drive access. Has anyone else had to deal with this? Awful software. Absolutely awful.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Why is Brekkie such a curmudgeon? Even complaining about the #clapforourcarers? I mean, really? After the week people have had a lot of people wanted to let of steam and show their appreciation for the NHS. I have a lot of time for his posts normally but he can be extremely negative about quite lit...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I wonder if Tuesday is going to be the official lockdown quarantine day. Emails from both National Express and John Lewis have said their last full days of service will be on Monday which seems an odd day of the week to choose otherwise. At least announcing it for Tuesday allows a last office prep d...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

It's odd to think that just a year or so ago Deliveroo, Uber Eats and Just Eat were being blamed as one of the main reasons why the chain restaurants were failing. Now the delivery services will probably be just about the only way any of these restaurants will cling on to life.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

I've been Skyping my friend who lives near Milan a lot this week. He's not got the virus but like the rest of the country is quarantined. Unfortunately he's alone in a one bed flat so has only his own company for at least the next fortnight. It all sounds like a miserable and absolutely bizarre expe...

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

Why is it called PINsentry? I've never understood it. Is it a play on words?

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Weird heated argument over whether or not ITV could in theory pay to have their logo put on Television Centre currently occurring in the SNT thread.

Even though there's been no official suggestion or anything. Very TV Forum.

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

That EE 5G ad, it feels like they think it's really impressive but boy, you had to be there didn't you. It cuts so fast you can barely process what's going on and when you can make it out it's so meh.
