I invariably put UK in the search term as well. Doesn’t seem to make much difference.

Is the Austin basically the pointy nose A40 van with windows and a fold down back seat, and van type rear doors?

And if you take a Car and trailer test in an auto, you can only tow using an auto, even if you hold a manual licence.

For the bigger stuff, you can take the test in either manual or auto bearing in mind that manual trucks and buses are rare, if you only hold an auto you can only drive an auto truck/bus but if you have a manual car licence, you can drive either regardless of what you passed your C/D test in.

I never knew you had to take a test to tow a trailer.  :-[

I use google.UK, my location is UK, tried this: , and tried exclude minus sign. It still often returns US sites.
I asked here about using a VPN  but was advised against it by TB, I think. :-\

Is there another decent search engine than Google? No matter what I do it insists on offering US sites or items priced in $. I have tried the fixes suggested and using the - exclude option with no luck.

Under duress, I recently upgraded to Win 10, and, unlike Win 7, it will not accept my HP 1510 printer as default. I have spent untold hours chasing down suggestions from Google to no avail. Can any of the IT experts here tell me how to fix this infuriating fault. >:( >:( >:(

The Beeb has seen itself as a revisionist left wing opinion former rather than an independent news reporter for many years. Take the saintly Laura (please do), her ‘to camera’ spots are invariably subjective conjecture about what ‘may’ happen if this or that occurs rather than objective comment on what has already occurred. >:(

Frightened the fish frogs and newts by climbing into the pond which is deep enough to almost reach my dangly bits, to find the bits of filter fountain that fell off. Not too cold either.  8)

Well I can only speak for myself, but my HP 1512 printer, now a few years old, was dirt cheap, does everything I need, and I repeat my above quote.  :y

I bought my HP1512 in part as an Ad claimed its print options included A5 which it didn’t. HP customer service were excellent and provided a software download to fix it.  :y

Walked the dog, again. ::)

I had a Bosch glass topped gas hob fitted last year. I have now had two replacement glass tops fitted due to cracks and scratches appearing within days of fitment. Bosch replaced them each time, but interestingly not under warranty but ‘goodwill’, suggesting that they don’t want to admit fault. They have inspected the latest one and have now refused to replace it again, blaming ‘misuse’.
We are not in the habit of trashing our household equipment, and clearly these hobs are not fit for purpose. I can’t be bothered to pursue this through Trading Standards or WHY, but I would like to post a negative review to warn others, as these hobs are marketed under various names. Apart from an Amazon review, where else is it worth posting?
