Re: The TSB & Lloyds Bank relaunch news and information board

70 TSB branches to close in 2022. The likes of Aylesbury and Tunbridge Wells losing their branches being in affluent areas show that those who can afford to do so are more likely to use internet banking. Customers will have the option of using the Post Office for basic banking or community pop-up c...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

In short I don't envy Rob and his team having to monitor that thread. Going to be a long few days until next Wednesday.

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

And while I’m here, what is it with people who are so wilfully ignorant? Google exists. If you think the forums are bad you should try Facebook groups for local communities. Questions such as "What time does the bus to xxx depart?" when both Google maps and the bus companies own website h...

Re: Energy bills: How spanked will YOU get?

I'd just switched to Avro days before they went bust. Once ported to whoever gets appointed I'll still check on a comparison website, however will probably stick to the standard variable tariff until after Christmas unless gas prices start falling. In terms of nationalisation I think there's a stron...

I did try that, but it didn't fix it.

I spoke too soon. Again...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

That's the worst 24 hours I've had since starting the forum, but I think it's working OK again now. Again, please read the stickied thread for details, and thanks to the majority of you for your patience and offers of support. Is it too early for a beer? I think you may have spoken too soon as when...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

As a thought does wearing face coverings reduce transmissions of Covid (and other germs) by causing people to subconsciously change their behaviour? Potentially wearing a mask yourself and/or seeing others wearing masks may alter what you choose to do, which in turn could help reduce the rate at whi...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

From my own experience last Friday afternoon I got a ping on the app telling me I needed to self-isolate for 5 days. I booked a drive-through PCR test for the same evening, but it wasn't until Monday lunchtime that I got the results. As I was told to self-isolate for only 5 days presumably that mean...

Re: Spammy spam spam

I've taken to reporting the nuisance calls I get to https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/nuisance-calls-and-messages/spam-texts-and-nuisance-calls/ . Despite being TPS registered I've had a few from call centres recently, as well as the computerised voice ones. By reporting them I like to think there...

Re: Windows 9 is now Windows 10

Hopefully Windows 11 will finally see all the remaining control panel options merged into the settings menu. Whilst the number of items in the Control Panel has reduced in the past few years / redirects to a setting option there's still quite a few items that still haven't been migrated across after...
