Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I just, I don’t know, I can’t get my head round paying someone to go to the shop for me because I can’t be arsed. Yes yes I know, some people aren’t able to etc, but I don’t think that’s who is using this. Is that not the same as any takeaway delivered to your house though? Someone's making you a m...

Re: Mystery Bags and official food waste thread

A lot of hotels in my part of London did this (pre pandemic at least) at the end of their breakfasts and it would be a great way of getting a huge bag full of fruit, pastries and the odd yoghurt for £2 at around 10am at the weekend.

Re: Brexit

There seems to be a curious lack of calling out negative things that are a direct result of Brexit, blaming the pandemic for things that were otherwise functioning during the pandemic last year. Nando's running out of chicken the other day was reported by BBC News as being a result of the 'pingdemic...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I'm amazed they've made it to 100 years but fair play to them, it's quite an achievement for a company that's constantly been on the brink of disappearing to continue operating when everything in the modern world is against them and they're actually opening new stores.

Re: Spammy spam spam

I've had a few phone calls but absolutely tonnes of spam texts. Mainly pretending to be Royal Mail, DPD, UPS etc. A lot of them have given up on even hiding the phone number now, just sending it straight from the 11 digit number, they must know they get a good hit rate regardless. There was a BBC Ne...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Oh good. Another “BBC is broken” thread. I'm not saying it's broke, as I said it's a cosmetic thing, nothing to do with how the forum engine room works. I've worked with the Milk theme a lot and know several admins who have found that adjusting the colour of one thing can mess something else up whi...
