Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Sainsbury's and Nectar now share the same login, with Nectar customers now having to use either their Sainsbury's groceries login or merge their old login into a Sainsbury's account. Logging in with (part of) your Nectar card number was one of the least user-friendly things possible, so I'll be gla...

Well well well... how the turn tables...
The turn tables only normally appear on the weekends - it's really unusual for them to appear on a Monday evening. I don't think they're all that good anyway - there's certainly been better in that slot before.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

The 'rule of six', announced nearly a week ago, has finally had its legislation announced. About fifteen minutes before it came into force. Some analysis here: https://twitter.com/AdamWagner1/status/1305276954816503808 Rather annoyingly, the fact that children are included (which they aren't in Wale...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I've decided to take a backseat over at TV Forum as well. I won't go into the background detail as to why I came to this decision but suffice it to say after 20 years of practically daily contributions, I don't feel particularly inclined to post at the moment. Maybe that will change, but I think fo...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

as cringey as they are, I do appreciate that they show a family going to do their big shop with a bike trailer.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

From their ramblings in the thread about the potential new Murdoch news channel, I am now pretty much certain that, as was suggested a few weeks ago, another_beauty is James Martin, back under his umpteenth username. How long until he lets slip with a homophobic rant or praise for Tommy Robinson to...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I have to say I've never understood why so many people get so fascinated and obsessed about rotas, but it's been a major part of TVF for nearly as long as its been around, so maybe there's something I'm missing... I don't either, but I guess it's like stamp collecting or trainspotting - some people...

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

It depends on the courier, but I've found that probably the majority of packages I've received lately (including a Coronavirus test kit) have been handed to me directly rather than placed on the doorstep.

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

For a good few months the place really seems to have taken a turn for the worse. A handful of times since I left I've had a browse for any glimmers of hope but it just feels a such an ugly environment to me now. I think current circumstances just mean we've had a longer than usual period with a red...
