When I went through this last year I found NS&I the most difficult to deal with.
Santander couldnt have been more helpful to me.

So sorry Barry, sending all our love.  With her age, and being the oldest in the country for a while you must have some fantastic memories.

Swapped the spark plugs on the Golf as a cyl 4 misfire detected.
theres other things going on too, but the plugs were due anyway so worth swapping anyway
Didnt cure the fault and neither did moving the coil packs between cylinders.

Main issue is a P2015 which looks like it needs a new Inlet Manifold.

Car very jumpy and hunting esp at idle.

Be aware the methods here are for the software running on this site (SMF), and that they wont work everywhere.
Depends where you are posting them, there may well be a different method depending on the software involved.

Nearly spun it on the M23 this morning. Hit a mahoosive puddle at a reasonable pace, the only warning of which was a wave large enough to surf on from a lorry that hadn't seen it either...  :o when I hit it, it was deep enough to hide the headlight beams and I thought I might have drowned it :'(

Still, the ESP, aka Anti Elk device, works, although it did lose the front number plate, two wheel trims and half of the damaged 'before I bought it' undertray.

All in all, not a bad result considering  ::)

 :o :o :o

Thought my acc had been cancelled.  Struggling on my phone but got back on.

My IP was blocked and access is denied. Could admin please unblock my IP caddy please.

TIA  :y
If you are using a proxy to access, well, TBH, it'll always get blocked. That's the nature of them.

If you're not, PM me your (blocked) IP, and I will see if its in our block list and remove if required.

Does this mean I won't be able to access OOF via a VPN?

Depends....via VPN theres a fair chance you'll (try) to come in via a blocked IP and therefore wont get access.
Same for any site that utilises blocklists.

Rather than just say buy this....
I'd like to know her requirements.
800 is a lot on a laptop (imho) 400 may be more than adequate without more knowledge.

Is she after lightness? battery life?  touchscreen?  size - Small / Medium / Large? What does she want it for and where does she use it?

Bad luck to Mrs T on the hyperemesis, Ljay had that, and lived on pretty much just milk for the whole pregnancy!

My zafira did me well for over 100k  no regrets at all, but im less keen on the newer ones styling.

out of interest, esp given I've LED lights already, which did you buy?

Lets just say weve had a user subscribe....and cannot get on here since, presumably as the IP he has is flagged as very high risk!

Assuming you have Microsoft office installed?

Ive seen similar a few times lately, easiest fix has been to go to control panel, programs and features, find MS Office in the list and click repair, this will fix any corruption and reasociate the files correctly.

I suspect their association has changed rather than the actual files, making this look worse than it is.
