  1. Just makes me so glad not to have been provoked! Also, owning a flat and a conical is very therapeutic....to me anyway
  2. any form of heat control?
  3. Should folks, in this case @Thecatlinux be able to make such a bold claim in his signature without justification. He invited me to start a new thread on the topic, and without causing controversy, I would ask members if they think a signature should be relevant or should we be allowed to quote any old waffle, which after all is just opinion and better elected to T shirt slogans
  4. Come on.....share with the uninitiated !
  5. I know I have a bad memory since my cardiac arrest, but does this project not seem to be dragging along? I wonder what whispers you have heard Cat. Does anyone know what format the LC will take? Will it be a Londinium take on aLa Pavings?
  6. Forums fulfil different needs for different folks regardless of gender. years ago there was a book out called Men are from Mars, Women from Venus. Although I never read it I can imagine what it stated. People do not seem to understand that two people might have completely different tastes, and there is nothing wrong with that. How can you criticise women for not coming onto forums where like it or not, mainly men preside. Wonder how many Mumsnet type forums have many male members. There rebound to be some but they will be in the few. Why did Loose Women stay at the top of lunchtime viewing, yet loose Men crashed and burnt. I do not think this forum is particularly different to that of any hobby. Men gather on street corners, tis a fact
  7. Hiya Jim, is that signature because you do not know what you are talking about......LOL I take it an old pal can pull your leg still
  8. If you do not press a button, then you soon get struck off the list. They only retry those who they think show interest. I am as rude as I possibly can be at times, after all, they know exactly what they are trying to do....
  9. I get half a dozen of these a week. I have a variety of stock answers, ranging from, 'You have reached BT customer services, how can I help you' to one which makes me chuckle the thought of them ringing the police to complain.....it goes along the lines of, 'wow, you have a great voice....can we have phone sex'......LOL. As soon as you get them off script, they are lost

    Ignore List

    In the spirit of full disclosure, and the new spirit of bon hommie, I have decided to take those few honoured members off my forum ignore list! Welcome back!
  11. They always need restoration work! The boilers are particularly problematical. Forget what they are made of but impossible to solder or weld when they leak (and they do!). Hard to find back up for and spares!
  12. All you are going to get s opinions, and these will usually reflect the kit they own, as quite naturally everyone thinks what they own is the best. My twopence worth. Find a retailer (not a box shifter) with a showroom with a decent angering them, make an appointment and go see them. Take a credit card, you will spend more than you initially thought. There are strong arguments as to why an HX is worse than a dual boiler etc etc, but if the retailer is honest, they will discuss all these options with you and explain why thy think particular machine is good for you. Depending on where you are in the country, BellabArista are fairly central and certainly fit the above (and I am on a good commission rate as well.....cash in an envelope!) Just joking, they pay me by cheque.....oops
