  1. Tenancy Advice... Damage not caused by us!

    I was looking to see if any of my fellow Shrimpers were able to offer some advice in regards to our tenancy (more for peace of mind as I think we are completely in the right). Part of our Tenancy Agreement is that we must maintain all white goods that have been supplied. Recently our washer...

    Telephone Sockets

    We're currently having a lot of work done on our house. One of the jobs was to remove all the old telephone sockets and wiring, and install a new telephone socket in the lounge. The guy who did it has done a really good job. We now only have one cable from the junction box inside the house...

    Microsoft Office v the free stuff

    My 2003 version of Office has finally reached the point where I can't install it on my Windows 10 laptop as it's been installed on far too many other laptops over the years. So.......what to do, buy a recent edition of Office or have a look at free packages. I've chosen the latter option and...

    Excel Help

    I'm hoping we have some kind of excel expert on here that can help me out. Let's assume I have about 500 cars all that need radios installed. I know the dates the installs will happen (because this has been planned well in advance) and have a column in my data that creates the "week beginning"...

    John white and the captaincy

    I do fear for JW this season. He is a good steady pro who always gives 100%, but the fact of the matter is that Demetriou is a better player than JW has ever been. JW is now second choice right back. He is not great at centre back and is definitely no left back on yesterdays massacring. With...

    Security weirdness in Windows 10

    I am regularly getting messages from Windows 10 telling me that Windows Defender and Webroot Secure Anywhere (my anti Virus stuff), are turned off. Each message also gives me the option to see what Security stuff I have installed. When I go there both apps are turned on and always have been...
  7. 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...
  8. Phil Brown - new contract

    Tweet from Chris Phillips sounds as though PB is very close or has signed his new contract at long last. I wonder what the clause is? Conditional on having a sun bed installed at Boots & Laces? 608380896991920128

    So if Brown goes what happens next?

    Ok with all this talk of our manger moving to Pompey at a real crucial time in our season I do hope uncle Ron has a good plan waiting up his sleeve just in case the bookies have got it correct and he moves to the South coast. Brown if his departure was say immediate he would probably take his...

    Nathan Jones

    I see Nathan Jones featured on the left for Brighton today in their 1-0 play off final victory. Must have been quite buzz for the fella winning at the Millenium Stadium.
  11. BoyWonder2


    I'm after a little bit of help, and was hoping someone amongst us knows more about laptops than me. I'm looking to get one that will be suitable for web surfing, playing the odd game (FM 2015), storing music and photos, that can have Microsoft Office installed and isn't too expensive. Ideally...
  12. OS

    Folks, Need a bit of advice on Operating Systems - my Windows 8 totally died, even the partition on my HD where the backup reinstall copy was, so I installed Ubuntu. Now it seems pretty good, epecially with the built in software, but trouble is it runs so slowly as I don't think my laptop is...

    Latest Rumours Deck chairs to be installed on fourth side of new stadium ?

    A friend of mine who works in the Amenities department at SBC has tipped me the wink that the Council are close to finalising a deal with uncle Ron to use the fourth side of the stadium as a store for the seafront deck chairs during the winter months. Apparently the bank of earth that will...

    Hull supporters?

    This week has been fun and games in the Roots household as a new kitchen is being installed, starting Monday. Today I got a call at 07.15am from the kitchen firm saying they were 30 minutes off with all the units, work tops and so on. They duly turned up when they said they would and started...

    In an interview in today's Football League Paper, John White is full of praise for Phil Brown, talks about taking on the role of captain and says he believes we have the quality to go up this season: New Southend Captain Promises More to Come SHRIMPERS ARE ON THE UP THANKS TO PHIL By Craig...

    South(north)end united football club

    Is Phil Brown northern bias ? Since he's been the gaffer Smith (northerner) has replaced Bentley(southerner). Cresswell (t' northerner) immediately installed as captain. He took off at half time then dropped Reeves (southerner) Put Mohsni (northern France) in midfield alongside Hurst,Lund...

    Academy Schools

    Does anyone on here have some knowledge on Academy school's? I ask because in a certain Academies case I find the whole set-up a bit worrying. In question for me is The Basildon Academies. I have a daughter at the lower site since September 2011 and my dealings with it have led me to go as far...

  19. Hmmm....it's a quandary

    Inspired by a Richard Bacon podcast with Johnny Vaughan. Now, if you have two Iphones (A & B), identical in every way apart from the fact that Iphone B has Angry Birds installed on it, does it weight heavier than Iphone A?

    Getting on my pips.

    So if the clinic that fitted/installed them wont remove them, the NHS will, which means because some woman wanted bigger tits weve all got to pay for her to get rid of them. ****ing ridiculous.
