Re: The Technology Thread

Out of curisosity, Metropollers, did anyone get affected by the IT Outage yesterday? Personally, it was quite minimal in terms of impacting my day. The worst was the dot matrix screen at my station was not working, and my online Maccies order went a bit funny. Besides that, felt like it was a bit ov...

Re: There an election this year.....

It wasn't a very surprising result really, as it had been forecast for months anyway - Labour and Lib Dem big winners, Tories and SNP big losers. The only change was that Farage belatedly turned up. At least we didn't get the full thirteen Reform MPs that the exit poll predicted. What next for the ...

Re: There an election this year.....

The collapse of the Tory and SNP vote have really not been surprising, given the turmultuous few years that both parties have had respectively. Not being Scottish, I would be interested to see if Alba played a role in splitting the Nationalist vote, or whether they were a non player in the election.

Re: There an election this year.....

So what did everyone think of that election? I was surprised when the exit poll appear, it proved what I was thinking Labour wouldn't get beyond 1997 result. I have to wonder why So many polls were thinking labour would get 450 and the Tories would get 80 odd seats. Lib dems could have gotten to 80...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

It’s a shame that some of the most prolific posters on the Forum also happen to be some of the most miserable, isn’t it? There’s rarely a day that goes by that something happens and one of a crowd of three or four doesn’t bemoan how awful it is or make some overdramatic comment. I don’t generally h...

Re: There an election this year.....

Got my postal vote on Friday. I've been affected by the boundary changes, so my village has been split in half, and our MP is based in a town that is further away, part of another borough, and part of another county (Cheshire). Ngl, not a fan of our Labour candidate I'm in a similar position with m...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

So as predicted, most Currys stores are now absorbing PC World and taking on a very simple but nice brand. It was pointless to have both running side by side with so much product crossover. http://www.soultsretailview.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/currys_pcworld_northumberland_street_graham_soul...

Re: With all the recent inflationary price rises, is there stuff you just won’t pay for now?

One thing that is increasingly becoming a less sensible purchase is my Trio Card. In Merseyside, you can basically pay for a ticket that lets you travel across parts of or all of the Liverpool City region (Depending on what you pay) on train, ferry, or bus for a certain cost per week, month, or year...

Re: The Very Official McDonalds (and other fast food outlets) Thread

So I've been on holiday to Tenerife, and I have to say that Spanish McDonalds is better than British McDonalds, in my opinion. Their Mcflurrys are much more customisable than what we have here, they offer quite a few food and drink items we don't have. The only thing they lack that I like are the Ch...
