There's only one I trust to do my Maurice Lacroix watch, and that's a small shop in Wakefield called watch hospital. The watch is curved and some jewellers won't touch it.

Think Ive got the same watch!
Did you buy it from price drop tv?  ;D

Yes, about 10 years ago!

As well you know, Internet Exploder (and Edge) are some of the most secure browsers for Windows out there ;).  But then you are perfectly capable of making a reasoned choice.

They are until the thing running in them requires you turn all the security features off and install a specific version JRE.. (I'm looking at you, Siebel!) That's before we get to the things that require us to run Flash (I'm looking at you, ADP eTime!). Of course, the new "cross platform" versions are "coming soon" - and have been since 2012.. ;D ;D
I reckon for most of them, "cross platform" essentially means HTML5 based.  And browser support for that can best be described as not-quite-there.

But you mentioning Siebel sent a shiver. I'd manage to blank those traumas, now I don't have to touch them.

bloody eco repair / order ;D ;D ;D

We've done a few in the past, At Chester Services, and at a Member owned cafe in Holywell.
Think of a location, that will allow a car meet, and chuck it in the meetings section and see what happens.

Always thought about doing a camping meet at Chester Lakes, but facilities are a bit sparce.

Just had a look and when I'm not logged in to the forum it just says logged in the bottom corner,but as soon as I've logged in to type this it has reverted to showing the numbers,so is that as it should be?

Exactly, When logged in it shows you your own internet address, (every house / business on the internet has a different one (not quite true, but does for purposes here))
Its the only address logged in memebers see.
Everyone only sees their own, so if you are not logged in, you are a guest, cannot post, so the posts your looking at arn't yours from a system point of view.
Hope that makes sense.

But, don't worry about it, its meaningless to the majority.

When you've a voice problem, its often best to keep broadband out of the discussion with BT, fix the voice and the broadband will usually follow.

I have access to talk to them directly via one of my work roles....thats always a nightmare too, so many hoops and obsolete systems to use to engage them.

Best thing you can do, is not to reboot / unplug your router.  Leave it on and dont touch it unless you have problems.

If I had a CD30, Id get a CD70 Navi off ebay instead

Better sound quality, plus satnav, some have input for 3.5 (cd30 or cd70), some don't, but it can be retrofitted regardless.

Yes, that shows your line is poor quality, wheres as STMO's was as good as FTTC (inifinity) lines get, yours very much isnt, and your lucky to get the speeds you told us of, getting 30mbps on that line is quite good going to be honest!
