Re: Another High Street Rebrand

A lifetime of training in Woolies and Wilko could not prepare me for the Aladdin's cave that is 4-Gott in Göteborg.

Over there, lösgödis is a religion.

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Slightly offtopic and should probably go on a TV Forum of some kind if there was one around but... ...one of those old advert compilations has gone up on YouTube -- apparently BBC2 / Lambie Nairn let Pizza Hut use not one, not two but three of their ident concepts to flog, to quote Spike from Buffy,...

Last time I checked the brain is biological too.

You are more defined by what is between your ears than what is - or isn't - between your legs.

Re: The Technology Thread

Just upgraded my Xperia 10 mk1 to Xperia 10 mk4. Nice narrow form factor for my tiny hands, all the bells and whistles I need, nice long battery life and 3.5mm jack. Decided not to go mk5 because of a couple of downgrades on the Mk4 model. Happy enough - it does what I want. Only niggle was seeming ...

One more Tory scorched earth policy before they're booted. It's only being done so that Liebour then have to spend money reinstating them.

Re: Emergency alerts

We don't have tornados, earthquakes or bushfires. We have localised flooding but there are pre-existing, local, targeted systems for that including old WW2 sirens.

What exactly is this for?

Re: The unofficial motorway services thread

Big fan of Cullompton having visited many times driving home from Kernow.

Favourite is Leigh Delamere.

The Extra on the southern leg of the M25 is also awesome and I visited it twice when we did a roadtrip to Sweden.

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

HSBC never used to like me topping up by phone back when I was on O2. Used to block my card on a whim. Got so fed up of navigating their fraud hotline.
