    Fixed Odds machines

    I have never used one and have no intention either but it's a hot topic in the media at the moment. Some geezer on 5Live said words to the effect that if the maximum stake was lowered from £100 to £2 it would cost 12,000 jobs. Doesn't he mean "Profits would drop and it will affect my bonus"...

    Question openreach/TalkTalk

    So Monday there was an open reach van that pulled down my road and started working, I walked my daughter to school and by the time I got home he'd packed up and left, got back inside and have been left with no dial tone and no internet in my house, spoke to TalkTalk as they are my provider they...

    Midi blog

    I see the blog section appears just to deal with football, so I've stuck mine here. Don't know whether it will interest anyone but it was good therapy, unwinding after an exhausting weekend. MIDI BLOG Today is one of the few days I can sit in front of the computer with absolutely no guilt...
  4. Bandwidth consumption to listen to Blues Player commentary?

    A quick question which a techy person may be able to answer. Does anyone have a rough idea of how much bandwidth would be consumed by listening to a full Blues Player match commentary? We've just moved to a remote-ish part of Ireland, and are waiting for fixed line broadband to be installed...

    Things You've Broken at Home and Got Away With

    Years ago, when I was still at school I had an 18th birthday party in my parents' house. My parents were very sensible and booked into a hotel for the night. That was partly to do with noise, and partly to do with the fact that about 20-30 people stayed over because they had travelled long...

    Southend Energy

    Some friends of ours have just changed over from their current energy provider (gas and electricity) to Southend Energy and reckon they are saving money as a result. I've had a look at the company on the web and have lifted the bit below. Anyone already done this, and are they any good...

    Fixed Forum

    As we are only 100 days away from the Election and it is getting more use each day this forum is now a "Main Forum" rather than a sub forum. Please all play nicely. You can all get your points across without resorting to name calling.

    Poorly Laptop and this weekends results

    My Laptop is everso poorly, and its s*d's law that it will give up the ghost just as I'm about to post the results on Saturday night! Hopefully it won't but if so please bear with me I will get the results up as quickly as I can (worst case is it could have wait till Monday). I'm getting it...

  11. Question Has meet the Blues day been fixed yet ?

    Just wondered if this has been fixed yet ? If not , is it related to lack of a sponsor and therefore lack of new kit launch ?

    HELP NEEDED - Ipod and Itunes problems

    Hello all, I have approx 4000 songs on my Ipod, but the hard drive on my PC where all my music was saved, crashed and became unrecoverable. Have now fixed my PC but whenever I connect my Ipod through Itunes, it wants to sync and wipe my Ipod. Is there a way of getting all the MP3's off the...
  13. Flexible bulk tickets?

    I was wondering whether it was worth approaching the club to see if they would be interested in offering flexible bulk tickets if the current three match mini card experiment works out well. My thinking is along the lines that full ST's and half ST's get a discount, quite rightly, for buying...
  14. BBC Article on Phil Brown

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25866578 He might not have fixed the floodlights but Phil apparently has been fixing fuses for the physio department.
  15. Food for thought

    Pompey Supporters' Trust chairman Ashley Brown says the group has proved it is capable of running Portsmouth. A year since former Pompey owner Balram Chainrai dismissed the group's bid as having "no substance", the PST has 2,170 shareholders, owns 59.3% of the club and has raised nearly £2.5m...

    New Badge Concept....

    After the Everton crest debacle & rumours of a new SUFC badge, I thought I'd see what kind of new design I could come up with. Unfortunately, the idea I had in my mind didn't quite match the final result :blush: due to only having access to MS Paint at work lol. I'd be able to create a...
  18. Question Anyone used Chipsaway or similiar??

    Hi , Need to get a bumper scuff fixed on my car and the alloys refurbished. Anyone used Chipsaway or similiar 'smart repair' companies in the Southend area ? I spoke to AlloyArt about wheel refurbs and was quoted £62.50+vat per wheel but have no experience of their work. Cheers, John

    A plea to the club - really, really important.

    Please, in time for next weeks home game, have it fixed so that fans can watch the feed on the telly in the bar. The reason is that every game, Dagenham Dave, or Dagenham Kev, or whatever his name is, wanders into the East Blacks and then proceeds to slag off everyone and everything SUFC...
  20. Kane Ferdinand

    Kane gave away a needless penalty in injury time today, gifting Watford a 1-0 win. Shame for him, but it was the missing result from my fixed odds coupon so personally I'm delighted.
